James Comey admits at least 10 people without security clearances had access to Hillary Clinton’s email server
One interesting tidbit to come out of yesterday’s show interrogation was when James Comey admitted that not only did Hillary Clinton’s lawyers not have the proper security clearances to rifle through her emails but also that at least 10 people without proper security clearances had access to the former Secretary of State’s email server.
Here is more:
FBI Director James Comey told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Thursday that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s lawyers did not have security clearance when they went through her emails to prepare for the investigation into her use of a private email server during her tenure at the State Department.
Comey also acknowledged that as many as 10 people without security clearance had access to the server.

“She’s not the head of Fish and Wildlife, so the idea that she would turn over her emails, her system, her server to what it sounds like up to 10 people without security clearances, and there’s no consequence. So why not do it again?” Chaffetz asked.
“But how can that—there’s no intent there? Does she not understand that these people don’t have security clearances?” Chaffetz asked.
“Surely she understands at least some of them don’t have security clearances,” Comey said.
“So she understands they don’t have security clearances, and it’s reasonable to think she’s going to be getting classified information. Is that not intent to provide a non-cleared person access to classified information?” Chaffetz asked.
“So why not do it again?” To me that is exactly why I believe this scandal and the results of the FBI’sinvestigation disqualifies Hillary Clinton from the Presidency.
Knowing all of this why would James Comey go out of his way and recommend not bring charges against Hillary Clinton when all that is in his job description is to present the evidence? Well, he has a long history with the Clinton’s…
