Watchdog files FOIA lawsuit over records on Hillary Clinton’s security clearance
NOVEMBER 05, 2018
A conservative watchdog group has filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the State Department over access to records on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s security clearance status.
Filed earlier this week by Judicial Watch, the lawsuit also seeks all records related to four of Clinton’s top aides from her time leading the department.
Clinton’s security clearance was “administratively withdrawn” at “her request” on Aug. 30, according to a letter sent to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa from State Department official Charles Faulkner. Cheryl Mills, who served as Clinton’s chief of staff, and four other individuals, whose names were redacted in the letter, had their access withdrawn in September.
