Team Clinton’s inability to properly handle classified information continued continues to get worse as we have just learned an unnamed “senior aide” to Hillary left classified information unsecured and unattended in a hotel during a 2010 trip to China.
“In May 2010, Secretary Clinton was on official travel in Beijing, China, accompanied by senior staff. Upon Secretary Clinton’s departure, a routine security sweep by Diplomatic Security agents identified classified documents in a staff member’s suite,” State Department spokesman John Kirby told Fox News in a statement, issued several weeks after a Freedom of Information Act request was filed with the agency.
At the time, Diplomatic Security, which is responsible for protecting the Secretary of State and other high-ranking foreign officials visiting America, wrote up the incident as well as the Marine Security Guards, who filed a separate formal report. The incident came to light when the FBI “was investigating whether Clinton or her staff violated the US Espionage Act by mishandling classified and top secret information.”
State Department officials maintain that Clinton had nothing to do with the incident, but the individual who mishandled the documents was a close aide to her, which calls into question her judgement on numerous fronts. Not only do we know Hillary cannot handle classified information properly herself, this demonstrates a complete lack of competency within her inner circles.
