This is about as bad as it gets.
Even though Hillary Clinton is out office, she is still surrounded by enough scandals to bury any ordinary politician.
But apparently Clinton is no ordinary politician.
Cira reported that the former presidential nominee and her former aides have kept their security clearances, meaning they still have access to classified information and top secret documents — even after the FBI concluded they were careless and mishandled sensitive information.
The revelation came after Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, questioned the State Department about the security clearances in March.
Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, revealed the information about the clearances on Friday, along with his concern about the State Department’s slow bureaucratic process.
Slow is an understatement.
“The State Department confirmed that it is continuing to review the mishandling of classified information that passed through Secretary Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized email server as she and seven former aides retain access to sensitive information,” Grassley’s office said.
Grassley’s office also stated that Clinton and her aides were able to keep the clearances because the department designated them as “research assistants,” allowing them “to take their State Department-issued clearance with them after their official service at the department,” according to Circa.
Former FBI Director James Comey said last July that Clinton and her aides were “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.” Yet, here we are almost a year later and Clinton still has access to access to sensitive information.
Who in their right mind thinks this is a good idea?
It’s obvious the system is corrupt because there is no good reason for Clinton to still have a security clearance after her reckless actions.
