Hillary Clinton’s security clearance removed ‘at her request,’ Judiciary Committee reveals

Hillary Clinton had her security clearance removed over the summer “at her request,” the Senate Judiciary Committee, who received confirmation from the State Department, revealed Friday.

The news comes as part of an update from the State Department of “its ongoing review of the mishandling of classified information related to the use of Clinton’s non-government email server,” a news release from the committee said.


Five other people labeled by the former secretary of state as being researchers, “including close aide Cheryl Mills,” also lost their clearance, the news release said.

The Judiciary Committee released a letter, dated Sept. 21 from the State Department to Chairman Chuck Grassley, detailing their progress in the investigation and the status of Clinton’s clearance, which was “administratively withdrawn” on Aug. 30. Mills and the other four individuals, whose name were redacted from the letter, had their clearance removed on Sept. 20, the letter said.

“As we previously informed the committee, these individuals had been granted access to classified information through a request made by Secretary Clinton designating them as researchers, per E.O. 13526, Sec. 4.4(a)(2),” the letter said.
