State Department probes Clinton handling of government emails, could pull her securit

State Department probes Clinton handling of government emails, could pull her security clearance

About time.


Quote:

The State Department has opened a formal inquiry into whether former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her aides mishandled classified information while she was the nation’s top diplomat, Fox News has learned. Despite being under investigation, Clinton and her staffers still have security clearances to access sensitive government information.

The department’s investigation aims to determine whether Clinton and her closest aides violated government protocols by using her private server to receive, hold and transmit classified and top-secret government documents. The department declined to say when its inquiry began, but it follows the conclusion of the FBI’s probe into the matter, which did not result in any actions being taken against Clinton or any of her aides.

Depending on the outcome of the current State Department inquiry, Clinton and her aides could have their access to sensitive government documents terminated.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, confirmed to Fox News the department’s formal inquiry.

Meanwhile, Grassley’s committee launched its own inquiry into Clinton’s handling of emails, an inquiry that began in March. Grassley cited among his concerns the July 5 statement of former FBI Director James Comey that the agency found Clinton and her staff members were “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.” Grassley also contended there is “evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information...”

During the FBI’s investigation of Clinton’s use of top-secret and classified information on her private server, Comey said there were seven email chains on Clinton’s computer that were classified at the “Top Secret/Special Access Program level.” Another 2,000 emails on her private server were found to have contained information deemed classified now, though not marked classified when sent. In addition, the server also contained 22 top-secret emails deemed too damaging to national security to be released.

Clinton’s spokesperson, Nick Merrill, told Fox News that the investigation into Clinton’s mishandling of classified information is done.

“Nothing's been more thoroughly dissected. It's over. Case closed. Literally,” said Merrill.

That's not a universally held view.

Chris Farrell, of Judicial Watch, a conservative Washington-based government watchdog that has filed a number of lawsuits related to the Clinton email scandal, said he believes Clinton and her “circle of national security criminals” should not have access to any classified information for any reason.

“Their conduct has cost them that privileged position of special trust and confidence,” Farrell said.

Any other government employee would have been prosecuted under 18 USC Sec. 793(f) (“Mishandling National Defense Information”) and be subject to a long prison sentence and large fines, Farrell added.

“This flagrant double standard for the gang that exposed Top Secret Codeword material to the Russians, Chinese and others is both offensive and deeply corrosive to the intelligence community,” Farrell said. “There is no better evidence that when it comes to Hillary Clinton and her côtèrie — laws are for the little people.”

Miss Hillary does not hold public office let alone federal office. When she resigned Secretary of State she automatically lost her security clearance. If she still has a security clearance then the belt flew off our classified security system. Who did that, Obama?

The p**sy grabber has understaffed the State Department horribly. Now the few that are left in the State Department are going to invest resources for politics ? It is not as if the have any concerns with Russia, China, Syria, Yemen or other REAL areas of concern. If it is found that the Orange Turd ordered this to distract from the Russia investigation, then that will just be another piece of the obstruction puzzle for Mueller.

Obstruction involves the judicial function, not an investigation by the FBI. You aren't very bright, as I have posted this fact several times and you refuse to learn.

State has been investigating Hillary since the FBI ended its investigation in July 2016. There is a lot to investigate*. That poster is as clueless as they get.

*Just heard that the Susan Rice unmasking info was sent to Obama's library, though the library is yet to be built.

Quote:
Judicial Watch today announced that the National Security Council (NSC) on May 23, 2017, informed it by letter that the materials regarding the unmasking by Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice of “the identities of any U.S. citizens associated with the Trump presidential campaign or transition team” have been removed to the Obama Library.

The NSC will not fulfill an April 4 Judicial Watch request for records regarding information relating to people “who were identified pursuant to intelligence collection activities.”

The agency also informed Judicial Watch that it would not turn over communications with any Intelligence Community member or agency concerning the alleged Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election; the hacking of DNC computers; or the suspected communications between Russia and Trump campaign/transition officials. Specifically, the NSC told Judicial Watch:
Documents from the Obama administration have been transferred to the Barack Obama Presidential Library. You may send your request to the Obama Library. However, you should be aware that under the Presidential Records Act, Presidential records remain closed to the public for five years after an administration has left office.
Judicial Watch: Obama NSC Advisor Susan Rice?s Unmasking Material is at Obama Library - Judicial Watch

The letter from the NSC to Judicial Watch:

Because she is the former secretary of state and someone might seek her advice, and that's hard if you can't talk about secret issues.

Really? What elected or appointed office does Mrs. Clinton currently hold where she would even have a security clearance to be suspended or revoked?

The clearance continues til it expires.
It's not contingent on a job.
She could still be consulted on State Dept Issues.
