In a development that may provide Donald Trump some reprieve from the various investigations dogging his presidency, the State Department announced that it was conducting an inquiry into Hillary Clinton’s email protocols. According to Fox News, neither Clinton nor her aides have been stripped of their security clearances and are therefore still authorized to receive and view highly classified information.
However, it is alleged that their clearance might now be revoked in light of the State Department’s new investigation. According to Clinton’s spokesperson, Nick Merrill, the investigation into Clinton’s email server is a shut case.
Nevertheless, Chris Farrell, of Judicial Watch, is convinced that Clinton and her “circle of national security criminals” should be stripped of their security clearance as a matter of urgency. “Their conduct has cost them that privileged position of special trust and confidence.”
