Not sure why this needs to happen for any person until they have won the general election, but certainly we should not be giving Clinton state secrets until we absolutely have to. Will she have to sign papers again promising not to mishandle the information? Will it matter? Lets not forget that she sent and received email on an unsecure server and device, and then covered it up when caught.

Secretary Clinton used several different servers and administrators of those servers during her four years at the State Department, and used numerous mobile devices to view and send e-mail on that personal domain. As new servers and equipment were employed, older servers were taken out of service, stored, and decommissioned in various ways.

when one of Secretary Clinton’s original personal servers was decommissioned in 2013, the e-mail software was removed. Doing that didn’t remove the e-mail content

From the group of 30,000 e-mails returned to the State Department, 110 e-mails in 52 e-mail chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information, which is the lowest level of classification.

The FBI also discovered several thousand work-related e-mails that were not in the group of 30,000 that were returned by Secretary Clinton to State in 2014

Still others we recovered from the laborious review of the millions of e-mail fragments dumped into the slack space of the server decommissioned in 2013.

etc etc etc

With respect to the thousands of e-mails we found that were not among those produced to State, agencies have concluded that three of those were classified at the time they were sent or received, one at the Secret level and two at the Confidential level.

From your own link: "I should add here that we found no evidence that any of the additional work-related e-mails were intentionally deleted in an effort to conceal them. Our assessment is that, like many e-mail users, Secretary Clinton periodically deleted e-mails or e-mails were purged from the system when devices were changed."

[A]ccording to the State Department, since Comey’s announcement on Tuesday the public has learned that in fact only 2 of the 55,000 email were marked as classified, and better yet, the two that were deemed classified were actually marked that way by accident.


State Dept spox Kirby just now says two emails that Comey said were 'marked classified' were wrongly marked, and were not classified.

Nothing marked classified. Careless? yes. But she was right when she said she never sent of rec'd anything marked classified.

She's going to get Intelligence briefings whether you like it or not.

Dunno, but it seems that Hillary can't handle classified information properly. She shouldn't receive any information that she can carelessly handle.

No indication that this applies to Trump. I've not heard the FBI say anything about him carelessly handling classified information, so he's probably good to go.
