Former Secretary Hillary Clinton is still being investigated by the State Department over the email scandal that she was involved in. This implies that Hillary Clinton and her top aides continue to keep their security clearances a year after the FBI concluded that they recklessly transmitted top secret and other classified intelligence through an insecure email server.
Charles Grassley, who is the Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman, issued a correspondence on Friday that contained the revelation. Grassley also expressed concern over the slow place of the department’s bureaucratic process.
Grassley’s office said that the State Department confirmed that it is continuing to review the mishandling of classified information that passed through Secretary Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized email server as she and seven former aides retain access to sensitive information
The office also said that the seven aides were able to keep security clearances because the department designated them as research assistants. They thus allowed them to take their State Department-issued clearance with them after their official service at the department.
Hillary Clinton and her top aides were confirmed to have been extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information. There’s also evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information. However, the then FBI Director James Comey resolved that he could not prove that she intended to violate the laws.
