Pressured Comey admits Hillary gave lawyers access to classified information despite no security clearance

Powered by Topple

During a House committee hearing, FBI Director James Comey admitted that Hillary Clinton allowed her attorneys to sift through classified emails, despite none of them having the security clearance to do so.

“Did Hillary Clinton give non-cleared people access to classified information,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Ut asked Comey.

“Yes, yes,” Comey responded.

“Did Hillary Clinton’s attorneys, without security clearances, see classified information,”

“I don’t know the answer to that,” Comey said.

“It has to be ‘yes’ director, you said you came across 110 [classified emails] and they said they went through all of them,” Chaffetz fired back.

“Well, they didn’t read them all, they just looked at headings,” Comey responded.

“So their excuse is ‘We saw the emails, but we didn’t read them,'” Chaffetz said mockingly.

Earlier today, House Speaker Paul Ryan demanded that Clinton be removed from being able to access all forms of classified and top secret information.

“Given the FBI’s findings denying Secretary Clinton access to classified information certainly constitutes appropriate sanctions,” Ryan said.
