A former special ops officer, Col. James Williamson, has had top security clearance since 1982.
Hillary Clinton has been allowed security clearance. Along with her top two aides, Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills. Col. James Williamson has expressed to the Daily Caller he’s shocked and dismayed.
It’s a well-proven fact that all three were grossly negligent in handling classified information.
Two retired colonels say former Secretary of State and failed 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton should have had her security clearance pulled.
One, retired Col. James Williamson, was surprised Clinton was not included in the White House’s announcement that it was considering revoking six former national security officials’ security clearances.
The Colonels’ organization, OPSEC, twice asked then-Secretary of State John Kerry in 2015 to suspend the security clearances of Hillary Clinton and her aides, Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin, and Jacob Sullivan.
“Frankly, I was shocked that Hillary, the chief culprit, was omitted,” retired Col. James Williamson told The Daily Caller News Foundation. Williamson, who was in special operations for 30 years and has held a top-level security since 1982, is president of OPSEC, a nonpartisan organization representing retired special forces and intelligence community officials.
“There is more than ample evidence that Hillary Clinton committed, whether its gross negligence or, as [former FBI Director James] Comey would like to say, extreme carelessness,” Williamson told TheDCNF. “Just from the documented evidence, there was enough to prosecute. If there’s evidence to prosecute, then there’s certainly grounds to pull somebody’s clearance.”
If Republicans had done the same, they would’ve had security clearances revoked before being locked up at Ft Leavenworth. Don’t you think?
This is troubling since documents prove that Hillary’s emails were stolen by a foreign entity unrelated to Russia. Many believe it was China but there is no proof of that yet.
