More than a dozen people broke State Department rules in handling former Secretary Hillary Clinton’s emails, resulting in 23 violations and seven infractions of security protocols, multiple reports stated.

The information came in a letter to Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, who oversees the security review, Fox News reported.

According to the Washington Times, some of the 15 people got write-ups placed in their security files at the department that could affect future attempts to gain security clearances, the department said.

“The department considers and violation of security policies to be a serious matter,” wrote Mary Elizabeth Taylor, assistance secretary for legislative affairs.

The State Department, calling the matter “serious,” said it expected to conclude the investigation by Sept. 1, Fox News reported.

Taylor wrote that disciplinary consequences were pending.

“In every instance in which the Department found an individual to be culpable of a valid security violation or three or more infractions, the Department forwarded the outcome to the Bureau of Diplomatic Security’s Office of Personnel Security and Suitability (DS/PSS), to be placed in the individuals’ official security file,” Taylor wrote. 

“This referral occurred whether or not the individual was currently employed with the Department of State and such security files are kept indefinitely,” Taylor added. “Consistent with the referral policy, for individuals who were still employed with the Department at the time of adjudication, the Department referred all valid security violations or multiple infractions to the Bureau of Human Resources.”

The State Department declined to release the names of the employees.

Investigations in 2016 found nearly two dozen emails Clinton sent or received contained top secret information, while more than 2,000 others contained classified information, the Washington Times noted.

  1. YOU ACT LIKE THIS WAS A LITTLE THING . THEY ALL WERE SPYS IN THERE ACTS .AND THAT IS HOW THEY SHOULD DEALED WITH PRISON NOT A LITTLE PAPER IN THERE RECORDS . THIS TELLS THEM THEY HELPED .THAT THEY CAN BE COUNTED ON AGAIN . TACK OUT THE TRASH OF D.C. BEFOR IT IS TOO LATE

  2. “The department considers and violation of security policies to be a serious matter,” wrote Mary Elizabeth Taylor, assistance secretary for legislative affairs. Evidently, not serious enough when a seemingly favored candidate’s criminality could derail the seemingly inevitable. We should worry.

  3. This IS How the Left, the Party of the “Resistance, the Deep State & the obvious Shadow Government” Covers for Each Other, while they Collectively Continue the Coup & work the Rest of Their “Insurance Policies”…

  4. The hearings after the Benghze murders of the State Dept people in charge was eye opening. They had been warned that the Ambassador and all others were in terrible danger. But Hillary’s and Obumo’s State dept did not care. Pull most security. When these 2 people were given the attack news… Obumo hid out. Hillary hung out a while and then went home to her favorite friend .. her wine glass. Time to get the help these people needed on the way. But Obumo and Hillary could not care. The State Dept people asked where was the help…the answer was that the Benghazi site was scheduled for 2.5 people and they had 3.. Just like this Obumo / Hillary State Dept did not care right from wrong…. I am sure down the roster there were those willing… but those running the State Dept were only interested in their State Dept jobs and coverup.
