Well, this is news


Daily CallerTwo 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.

I'm surprised Clinton still holds a clearance. Entirely aside from her email fiasco, which would be grounds to revoke it, she hasn't held an official government position since 2013 when she stepped down as Secretary of State. As a presidential candidate she might have been given a clearance but she lost. These things should expire in a reasonable time period, and five years since 2013 is more than enough time for a clearance to expire.
