Hillary Clinton’s Security Clearance Removed ‘At Her Request’
In a letter received on Friday to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) from the State Department, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had her security clearance withdrawn.
Along with Clinton’s clearance, an additional five of her aides had their security clearances revoked. Her former chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, had her clearance revoked as well as four aides whose names were redacted in the letter.
The letter to Chairman Chuck Grassley stated, “At her request, former Secretary Clinton’s security clearance was administratively withdrawn on August 30, 2018. On September 20, 2018, security clearances were administratively withdrawn for Cheryl Mills, [redacted], [redacted], [redacted], and [redacted]. As we previously informed the committee, these individuals had been granted access to classified information through a request made by Secretary Clinton designating them as researchers.”
Clinton voluntarily requested to have her security clearance withdrawn which raises questions of whether or not she was using it anymore or was this voluntary withdrawal to get ahead of any scathing report to be released about her now confirmed mishandling of classified materials send over an unsecured email service.
