Hillary Clinton and her staff still have top security clearance and could access “sensitive government information,” months after she lost the presidential election and months into the President Donald Trump presidency. In the same report, Fox News said that this is the case even as 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.”
“Despite being under investigation, Clinton and her staffers still have security clearances to access sensitive government information,” Fox News reported.
Fox News said Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, confirmed the renewed investigation, but the State Department would not comment on it when asked by Breitbart News.
”Due to privacy considerations, the Department cannot provide any information regarding any current or former employees’ security clearance or access to classified information,” a State Department spokesperson told Breitbart News.
