Hillary Clinton gives up her security clearance in wake of email scandal

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has forfeited her government security clearance and requested the cancellation of clearances granted to five aides.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley released a letter from the State Department on Friday, confirming that Clinton, former chief of staff Cheryl Mills and four other unnamed staffers lost their access to state secrets on September 20.

Grassley asked State more than a year ago to investigate whether Clinton and her aides still held security clearances.
