Hillary Clinton managed to retain access to classified and top secret documents for herself and six staffers after she announced her run for the presidency in April 2015.

The State Department recently told the Judiciary Committee that six of Clinton’s former aides were referred to as “research assistants,” which enabled their clearance to go with them after their official service at the department ended.

Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, stated in a letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson Thursday: “Any other government workers who engaged in such serious offenses would, at a minimum, have their clearances suspended pending an investigation. 

The failure to do so has given the public the impression that Secretary Clinton and her associates received special treatment.”

After completing the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s email server, Director James Comey said that “there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information,” and that individuals who are careless with such material are “often subject to security or administrative sanctions.
