Fox News correspondent Ed Henry dropped a bombshell on Friday when he reported that Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) had confirmed that Hillary Clinton and six of her aides retained their access to top secret and classified information after leaving the State Department in 2013.
“We’re learning from Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley that she and six staffers in 2013 retained clearances where they still had access to top secret and classified information,” Henry said, according to Breitbart. “Why? They were titled ‘research assistants.’ So the assumption on Capitol Hill is it was because she was writing her memoirs and saying, ‘Look, I still need access to this information in order to go through what happened in Syria, what happen with Russia. But obviously think back to what James Comey said in how Hillary Clinton handled classified information.”
He was referring to a statement FBI Dir. Comey made last summer in which he said Clinton was “extremely careless” in how she handled classified information.
“He obviously believes something needs to be done about this,” Henry added. “The only positive for Chuck Grassley at this point is, there’s no longer a Democrat at the State Department, obviously. You got Rex Tillerson, so if you have these documents on why she retained these clearances, and for example does she still have a clearance today? A lot of former officials get to keep these clearances for years — when they’re consultants … some of them like to retain it because they say I was in the middle of all of these important issues. I need to keep abreast of it. Been then some of these folks in Washington — they say drain the swamp.”
