Don’t be shocked, but former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and some of her then-staffers skipped out on mandatory ethics classes.
A search of government records failed to find evidence that while secretary of state from 2009-2013 Clinton or any of her top aides took the required ethics courses, according to The Hill.

“Documents obtained by the Republican National Committee (RNC) via a Freedom of Information Act request showed that some staffers met some or all of the agency’s requirement, but the former secretary of State and six other top aides are not among them,” the Washington-based newspaper reported.
The six aides who had no record of attending the ethics courses were Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills; Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin; Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy Jake Sullivan; Special Representative Kris Balderston; Director of Policy Planning Anne-Marie Slaughter; and Special Assistant Caitlin Klevorick.
Few were shocked by the revelation that Hillary ignored laws and rules to do whatever she wanted.
LOL. Perfect. https://t.co/t8siTKFIyw

@thehill What a waste of time that would be. Like expecting the President and Congress to understand the Constitution.

One Twitter user even took the occasion to slam Bill Clinton.
@thehill No record Bill took the sexual harassment awareness training, either.
