The State Department revealed Monday that it has identified “multiple security incidents” involving current or former employees’ handling of Hillary Clinton’s emails, and that 23 “violations” and seven “infractions” have been issued as part of the department’s ongoing investigation.
The information came in a letter to Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, who is responsible for overseeing the security review.
“To this point, the Department has assessed culpability to 15 individuals, some of whom were culpable in multiple security incidents,” Mary Elizabeth Taylor, the State Department’s Assistant Secretary in the Bureau of Legislative Affairs, wrote to Grassley. “DS has issued 23 violations and 7 infractions incidents. … This number will likely change as the review progresses.”
The State Department, calling the matter “serious,” said it expected to conclude the investigation by Sept. 1. The department acknowledged that the probe was unusually time-consuming.
“Given the volume of emails provided to the Department from former Secretary Clinton’s private email server, the Department’s process has been necessarily more complicated and complex requiring a significant dedication of time and resources,” Taylor wrote.
Taylor also noted that disciplinary consequences were pending.
“In every instance in which the Department found an individual to be culpable of a valid security violation or three or more infractions, the Department forwarded the outcome to the Bureau of Diplomatic Security’s Office of Personnel Security and Suitability (DS/PSS), to be placed in the individuals’ official security file,” Taylor wrote. “All valid security incidents are reviewed by DS and taken into account every time an individual’s eligibility for access to classified information is considered.
“This referral occurred whether or not the individual was currently employed with the Department of State and such security files are kept indefinitely,” Taylor added. “Consistent with the referral policy, for individuals who were still employed with the Department at the time of adjudication, the Department referred all valid security violations or multiple infractions to the Bureau of Human Resources.”

And those are the very emails they NEEDED access to; what was the Clinton Foundation doing in relation to State Department business? Absurd. Totally absurd and absolute obstruction of justice. To liberals that seem to see (when they want to) obstruction of justice all over the place, THIS is what it actually looks like; an ACTUAL crime has been committed and investigation into the crime are blocked.
Compare this to the SWAT team with guns drawn investigatory method employed against a Republican. But, no, there is no double standard.
Well, how about Uranium One? There’s probably cause. Also, since Hillary decided to willingly put all her official State Department emails (including thousands and thousands of classified emails), then until deemed otherwise, ALL the emails on that server belong to the State Department and the American people. Indeed, since clearly Hillary’s intent was to evade FOIA requests, she nor any of her gang could be trusted to tell the FBI what they needed to see and what the didn’t. Where in the real world do those conditions exist? Nowhere but in the leftist deep state.
Hillary’s passport should be confiscated.
