Is Clinton's Security Clearance Revoked?

She's blithe enough to name a CIA agent in her emails.

The nondisclosure agreements Hillary Clinton signed in January 2009 specifically said if she caused a security breach, her security clearance would be revoked. And yet, Clinton was so blithe about national security that she identified the name of an Afghani citizen who was on the CIA’s payroll — essentially disclosing the real identity of an agent for the CIA. This was jus one of the 29 emails the State Department gave to a handful of Congressional committees with the security clearances to view top secret material. Rep. Chis Stewart was one of those lawmakers. “I have never read anything more sensitive than what these emails contain, the member of the House Intelligence Committee said. "They do reveal classified methods. They do reveal classified sources and they do reveal human assets. I can’t imagine how anyone could be familiar with these emails, whether they’re sending them or receiving them, and not realize that these are highly classified.” For the sake of national security the State Department should admit that Clinton violated that nondisclosure agreement. If she is elected as president, then it means America would have chose a commander in chief who lost the trust of the U.S. intelligence community, and someone who should be denied from learning about America’s clandestine operations.
