In a move that sent cheers throughout the nation, Colorado U.S. Senator Cory Gardner teamed up with U.S. Senate Whip John Cornyn to revoke Hillary Clinton’s security clearance. The bill is hilariously (and pointedly) titled the Taking Responsibility Using Secured Technologies (TRUST) Act of 2016. Those senators have a sense of humor – TRUST Act. You know, because nobody trusts Hillary.
The Act would not only revoke Hillary’s security clearance, but also the staff who helped jury-rig an independent server (that may or may not have been hacked by Russians) for her when she served as Secretary of State. Here’s what Gardner said about the bill:
“The FBI’s investigation into Secretary Clinton’s personal e-mail server confirmed what Americans across the country already know: Secretary Clinton recklessly accessed classified information on an insecure system – establishing a vulnerable and highly desirable target for foreign hackers. If the FBI won’t recommend action based on its findings, Congress will. At the very least, Secretary Clinton should not have access to classified information and our bill makes sure of it.”
The bill is in response to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s lack of will to prosecute Secretary Clinton despite FBI Director James Comey saying, “there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information” and “none of these e-mails should have been on any kind of unclassified system, but their presence is especially concerning because all of these e-mails were housed on unclassified personal servers not even supported by full-time security staff.”
