In a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, Acting Assistant Secretary for Legislative Affairs Charles S. Faulkner wrote that Hillary Clinton’s security clearance had been “administratively withdrawn” on August 30 at her request.

Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the State Department, requesting access to records related to the security clearance status of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a handful of her top aides.

The watchdog stated that the lawsuit was filed in the US District Court for the District of Columbia after the State Department failed to respond to the group’s previous request seeking “any and all records concerning, regarding, or relating to the security clearance status of Clinton, Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, Jacob Sullivan and Philippe Reines.”

Judicial Watch elaborated that Clinton’s security clearance had reportedly been withdrawn at her request on August 30, nine days after the group filed a FOIA request.
The watchdog cited a September 21 letter sent to Chuck Grassley, the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman, written by State Department official Charles Faulkner.

Cheryl Mills, who served as Clinton’s chief of staff during her tenure at the State Department and four other individuals also had their clearances revoked, albeit in September.

“At her request, former Secretary Clinton’s security clearance was administratively withdrawn on August 30, 2018. On September 20, 2018, security clearances were administratively withdrawn for Cheryl Mills, [redacted], [redacted], [redacted], and [redacted]. As we previously informed the committee, these individuals had been granted access to classified information through a request made by Secretary Clinton designating them as researchers,” the letter read.
