When you mess with the nation’s security, there are consequences.
No matter who you are.
‘A formal inquiry’ into Hillary Clinton’s private email use has been opened by State Department officials.
The server was located at her New York residence.
Due to the nature of the case the state is considering if Hillary and her aides should be stripped of their security clearances.
Officials are investigating her use of a private server in the basement of her Chapaqua, New York, mansion to determine if she mishandled classified information during her tenure as the nation’s top diplomat, Fox reported in news the outlet said is confirmed by Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley.
Former FBI Director James Comey said in a July 2016 press conference that Clinton and her aides were “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.” But he did not recommend prosecution of Clinton or any of her aides, a move that generated widespread criticism.
Officials found that Clinton’s private emails contained dozens of documents labeled Top Secret and “Special Access Program” — the nation’s highest classification — among her emails delivered to the department by her lawyer, David Kendall.
Fox News reports that State Department officials are determining if Clinton and her aides “violated government protocols by using her private server to receive, hold and transmit classified and top-secret government documents.”
Ding-dong the wicked witch is about to be beaten with her broom stick!
Hillary losing security clearance is like taking the ‘crown’ from her over inflated, self-obsessed, kill-anyone-who-gets-in-my-way head.
Of course, there is always Bill Clinton’s clearance she could abuse.
But still, this is no help to her image.
Fox reported it did not know if the formal inquiry began with Kerry or with Trump Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
The State Department declined to address any aspect of their inquiry into the former Secretary and her aides, informing Saagar Enjeti, TheDCNF’s Pentagon and foreign affairs correspondent, “Due to privacy considerations, the Department cannot provide any information regarding any current or former employees’ security clearance or access to classified information.”
Fingers crossed she and her aids were stripped of their security clearances.
How they weren’t removed before is still baffling.
