Clin­ton’s se­cu­rity clear­ance with­drawn at per­sonal re­quest

Texarkana Gazette - - NATION/WORLD -

WASH­ING­TON—The State De­part­ment says for­mer Sec­re­tary of State Hil­lary Clin­ton's se­cu­rity clear­ance has been with­drawn at her re­quest.

Clear­ances for five other peo­ple Clin­ton des­ig­nated as re­searchers have also been with­drawn, in­clud­ing for aide Ch­eryl Mills.

The State De­part­ment dis­closed Clin­ton's re­quest in a let­ter to the Se­nate Ju­di­ciary Com­mit­tee.

The com­mit­tee chair­man, Sen. Chuck Grass­ley, au­tho­rized the let­ter's dis­clo­sure fol­low­ing con­sul­ta­tion with the de­part­ment. The let­ter blacks out the names of four other Clin­ton re­searchers whose se­cu­rity clear­ances were with­drawn last month.

The Iowa Re­pub­li­can has been crit­i­cal of Clin­ton's han­dling of clas­si­fied in­for­ma­tion and has urged ad­min­is­tra­tive sanc­tions. The com­mit­tee says the up­date on Clin­ton's se­cu­rity clear­ance is part of an on­go­ing State De­part­ment re­view re­lated to her use of a non­govern­ment email server.
