State May Pull Hillary’s Security Clearance Over Private Email Server

State Department officials have opened “a formal inquiry” into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server located in her New York residence, and are considering whether she and her aides should lose their security clearances, Fox News reports.

    There is a great way to stop “leaks” and insider information that is crippling the Trump administration is that anyone that does not currently work or have office with the administration should have their clearance revoked immediately on termination of employment. Why this unemployed, un-elected loser still has hers in the first place is beyond any sense. If I fire an employee – they sure as sh*t wouldn’t be allowed to have continued access to my files or data – why is it any different for government officials?

      It is unbelievable that this is not standard procedure anyway.

      1. Her security clearance was probably not issued because she did not complete the paperwork/attend the requisite briefings in 2009; the State Department was unable to publish any of her necessary documentation.
      2. On or before her last day as Secretary, she should have visited the Department Security Clearance official to be officially removed from the list of security clearance holders.
      3. Her file is then placed in the inactive cabinet, to be held for two-four years; if she returns to a government job for which a clearance is require, her file can be quickly reactivated.
      4. Given Point#1, she didn’t have a clearance in the first place, and the furore is uncalled for.

      Cheers

    There should in fact be a federal law that strips anyone not in the employment of the Federal government or a contractor to the Federal goverment nor on the board of a vendor to the Federal government nor the legal representative of anyone suing the Federal government, being sued by the Federal government or criminally prosecuted by the Federal government to have their clearance revoked. If their situation changes, pull down their prior application, update it and resubmit it.

    “May?”
    “May?”
    “MAY?”

    WTF. Why was her Security Clearance not pulled the day her email server came to the attention of the intelligence services? Did Obama give orders to not touch Hillary’s clearances like any normal person would have theirs revoked?

    • I know, right? its like a fired CFO retaining the authority to write checks!

  • Um, why wasn’t this done before?

      Hill and Bill should split for Russia – just to get away from all their stressors.

    For every other government employee or contractor once you have left your position after two years the clearance is inactivated.

    Why isn’t she being investigated and prosecuted?

    Haven’t seen the old hag for weeks now. I suspect they are reupholstering her for her next public appearance. Her last outing was memorable – a skirt thingy over leggings! Her cankles were obviously swollen despite their attempts to cover up the fact. And she was looking stouter than usual. Hillary is an old lady trying desperately to appear vital and engaged. Sad.
