As Secretary Of State, Clinton Violated State Department Employment Policy She Made All Other Employees Comply With
STATE DEPT. EMPLOYEES WERE REQUIRED TO STATE THEY SURRENDERED ALL UNCLASSIFIED, OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS, SOMETHING THE FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE FAILED TO DO HERSELF
Yesterday, The Associated Press Reported That Under Clinton All Outgoing State Department Employees Had To Sign A “‘Separation Statement’ Declaring They Had ‘Surrendered To Responsible Officials All Unclassified Documents’ Related To Official Business.” “The Republican National Committee used the vacuum Monday to keep the pressure on Clinton, noting a State Department policy requiring all outgoing employees to turn over job-related materials before leaving. The policy required such employees to sign a ‘separation statement’ declaring they had ‘surrendered to responsible officials all unclassified documents’ related to official business during their employment.” (Jill Colvin and Ken Thomas, “Clinton Avoids Email Controversy At Women’s Event,”The Associated Press , 3/9/15)
“It Was Not Immediately Clear If Clinton Signed The Agreement,” Even Though “The Secretary Of State Is Supposed To Follow Such Department Policies.” “Clinton left the State Department in early 2013. It was not immediately clear if Clinton signed the agreement but State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the secretary of state is supposed to follow such department policies. A Clinton spokesman did not immediately comment.” (Jill Colvin and Ken Thomas, “Clinton Avoids Email Controversy At Women’s Event,”The Associated Press , 3/9/15)
Clinton Did Not Hand Over Work Related Emails Until Nearly Two Years After Stepping Down In Early 2013. “It was only two months ago, in response to a new State Department effort to comply with federal record-keeping practices, that Mrs. Clinton’s advisers reviewed tens of thousands of pages of her personal emails and decided which ones to turn over to the State Department. All told, 55,000 pages of emails were given to the department. Mrs. Clinton stepped down from the secretary’s post in early 2013.” (Michael S. Schmidt, “Hillary Clinton Used Personal Email Account At State Dept., Possibly Breaking Rules,” The New York Times , 3/2/15)
