According to the Senate Judiciary Committee, the wicked witch of Arkansas has finally lost her security clearance.
Chuck Grassley, the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee has also stated that 5 others have been stripped of their clearances, including former Clinton aide, turned HRC’s attorney, the infamous Cheryl Mills.
Via the Senate Judiciary Committee:
The U.S. State Department recently confirmed that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s security clearance has been withdrawn at her request. Clearances for five other individuals whom Clinton designated as researchers have also been withdrawn, including close aide Cheryl Mills, according to the State Department’s update of its ongoing review of the mishandling of classified information related to the use of Clinton’s non-government email server.
Documents containing classified material have been sent to the Bureau of Diplomatic Security, and all valid security incidents have been added to the security file for some individuals. Department authorities are continuing to review tens of thousands of documents for classified content.
The update was provided to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and is being released for the first time following consultation with the State Department. The update follows a letter from the Department in May of 2017 confirming the Department’s review into any mishandling of classified information stemming from the use of Clinton’s non-government email server. That letter, which responded to an inquiry from Grassley, also outlined the review and adjudication process.

If there was one group you could point to and give credit for this victory it would be Judicial Watch, the libertarian/conservative legal watchdog group. If it were not for Judicial Watch Americans may never have even known about HRC’s illegal server.
The Gateway Pundit Reports:Hillary Clinton conducted official business on a non government server so she could hide her Clinton Foundation pay-to-play while she was head of the Department of State.
Although Crooked Hillary deleted/BleachBit over 33,000 emails having to do with ‘yoga’ and ‘Chelsea’s wedding,’ Judicial Watch continues to uncover classified material exchanged on her private server through FOIA lawsuits.
UPDATE: According to Hillary, she gave the clearance up in protest of President Trump … if you can believe that!
Nick Merrill, a Hillary Clinton spokesman said the former secretary of State voluntarily gave up her security clearance back in August:
“Back in August, Admiral William McRaven penned a letter in the Washington Post in the aftermath of Trump revoking
@JohnBrennan’s security clearance…In his letter, he admonishes President Trump for this petty act, and says that Trump’s time as President has “embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation.”…Who is Admiral McRaven? A partisan? No. He headed Joint Special Operations Command during the rescue of Captain Phillips. He was the architect of the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden. A prominent Republican once said that he had “literally written the book on Special Operations.”…Admiral McRaven has served both Republican and Democratic Presidents, and is a man of honor whose service to this country and heroism is virtually unrivaled…Secretary Clinton has great respect for Admiral McRaven. She read this message & decided to take the step of voluntarily withdrawing her security clearance, which she maintained after leaving her post as Secretary of State to write her book, customary for former Secretaries…Her attorney submitted a letter to the Department, citing McRaven’s op ed. She did this quietly so as to not allow Trump to use our national security for partisan purposes yet again. Because that’s what was in the best interest of the country…Sure enough, 6 weeks later Senator Grassley, king among partisans, released a letter, again playing politics with our national security. It’s a disgrace…Here is Secretary Clinton’s letter from August 30th.”
