Well this is weird. Hillary Clinton’s security clearance was yanked, but apparently it’s because she requested it.
From the Hill:
The State Department has revoked former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s security clearance after she requested that it be withdrawn, according to a letter released Friday by a top GOP senator.
The State Department—in a letter dated Sept. 21 but publicly released Friday— told Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, that the security clearance was revoked on August 30 after Clinton requested that it be withdrawn.
“We would like to provide you with an update on the status of former Secretary Clinton’s security clearance and the ongoing administrative review pertaining to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other current and former department officials,” Charles Faulkner, the acting assistant secretary of legislative affairs, wrote to Grassley.
Well that’s kinda odd. Apparently 5 other people who were her aides had their clearance yanked too, including Cheryl Mills.
Byron York thinks she might have done so in order to keep it from being yanked from her.
Very interesting. I wonder if we’re going to see more details about this story in the future. I try to avoid conspiratorial thinking, but when it comes to the Clintons, they rarely do anything without some ulterior motive that leads to them profiting somehow…
