The FBI and Loretta Lynch may have let Hillary off the hook, but Senate majority leaders are stepping up to fight back with a new bill that tells the entire country that Hillary Clinton is not above the law. In the midst of massive corruption in Washington, it’s good to know there are still representative in Washington will to fight for what’s right.
John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) dropped a bomb on the Hillary camp and the entire liberals community with a new bill in light of Hillary’s “extremely careless” behavior with classified information.
Here is what has been reported…
From The Hill:
Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) on Thursday introduced a bill to strip Hillary Clinton of her security clearance, joining a growing chorus of Republican lawmakers who believe she is unfit to handle classified information.
“When individuals mishandle our country’s most sensitive information they jeopardize national security and shouldn’t be trusted with such an important responsibility,” Cornyn said in a release.
The bill comes days after FBI Director James Comey ripped Clinton’s recklessness in using a private email server to handle classified emails. Comey did not recommend criminal charges against Clinton.
Republicans in Congress have seized on revoking Clinton’s security clearances as one line of attack against the presumptive Democratic nominee. They are also pressing for the release of transcripts of the FBI’s interview with Clinton.
The GOP bill would not only revoke Clinton’s security credentials, it would revoke those of some of her closest aides.
“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,” Gardner said in a statement.
House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) have also called for the security clearances to be revoked. Ryan wrote a letter to Director of National Intelligence James Clapper making his request formal on Thursday.
Clearly, the Obama administration was set on letting Hillary off the hook months ago with no consequences whatsoever, but leaders in Washington are still fighting for Americans.
