So last night we posted about how Grassley revealed that Hillary Clinton herself requested that her security clearance be revoked, and it was.
Apparently, her spokesperson says this is A DISGRACE!!!!
He explained in a twitter rant.
In his letter, he admonishes President Trump for this petty act, and says that Trump’s time as President has “embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation.”— Nick Merrill (@NickMerrill) October 13, 2018
Who is Admiral McRaven? A partisan? No.— Nick Merrill (@NickMerrill) October 13, 2018
He headed Joint Special Operations Command during the rescue of Captain Phillips. He was the architect of the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden. A prominent Republican once said that he had “literally written the book on Special Operations."
Secretary Clinton has great respect for Admiral McRaven. She read this message & decided to take the step of voluntarily withdrawing her security clearance, which she maintained after leaving her post as Secretary of State to write her book, customary for former Secretaries.— Nick Merrill (@NickMerrill) October 13, 2018
Her attorney submitted a letter to the Department, citing McRaven’s op ed. She did this quietly so as to not allow Trump to use our national security for partisan purposes yet again. Because that’s what was in the best interest of the country.— Nick Merrill (@NickMerrill) October 13, 2018
Sure enough, 6 weeks later Senator Grassley, king among partisans, released a letter, again playing politics with our national security. It’s a disgrace.— Nick Merrill (@NickMerrill) October 13, 2018
Here is Secretary Clinton’s letter from August 30th. pic.twitter.com/5ERoF8aAhY— Nick Merrill (@NickMerrill) October 13, 2018
I just don’t see the problem. Clinton doesn’t get to decide that the public shouldn’t hear that she pulled her clearance. Why is this the worst thing ever? WHAT HORRORS IS CLINTON TRYING TO HIDE?! Send your most improbable PizzaGate theories in the comments please.
