Report: Hillary Clinton Failed to Complete State Department Security Training in 2009

hillary clintonNew documents unveiled through a FOIA request suggest that Hillary Clinton did not complete her security training for handling the State department’s classified information.

The Daily Caller received a collection of documents, showing Clinton’s chief of staff Cheryl Mills and deputy chief Huma Abedin completed their “Special Compartmented Information” (SCI) training. The two signed these forms in January 2009, but there is no such form confirming that Clinton completed the course.

Classified SCI documents usually deal with highly-sensitive State Department information, not the least of which are satellite intelligence and communications with America’s spies abroad. It is possible that information of this kind existed within the emails of Clinton’s private server.

Retired Col. Jim Waurishuk oversaw security protocols as  U.S. Central Command deputy director for intelligence, and he told Daily Caller that he found it hard to believe that Clinton didn’t actually complete the training.

“The standard process is you will get all your security indoctrination done immediately upon taking office,” Waurishuk said. “Technically, if you don’t do (the training) for people at my level, they can pull your clearance. There’s a level of responsibility, trustworthiness, and your integrity that comes into play here.”
