Republicans officially petitioned the administration Thursday to deny Hillary Clinton access to secret information as Democrats’ presidential nominee, and some GOP lawmakers said if the intelligence community won’t do it, they’ll pass a bill to do it themselves.
Oh, wait—it’s a question because
The White House has said it won’t deny Mrs Clinton access….
On the excuse of tradition, don’t you know.
Never mind the tradition, and the requirement in most serious security régimes—like in a government—of revoking existing security clearances and denying further access to those who’ve committed security violations as egregious as even FBI Director James Comey has documented Clinton having done.
Some rules, some traditions, just don’t apply. Not when they’re inconvenient.
