U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, announced Friday afternoon that the U.S. State Department confirmed that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s security clearance was withdrawn at her request.

Clearances for five other individuals whom Clinton designated as researchers have also been withdrawn, including close aide Cheryl Mills, according to the State Departmentā€™s update of its ongoing review of the mishandling of classified information related to the use of Clintonā€™s non-government email server.

Documents containing classified material have been sent to the Bureau of Diplomatic Security, and all valid security incidents have been added to the security file for some individuals.Ā Department authorities are continuing to review tens of thousands of documents for classified content.Ā 

The update was provided to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and is being released for the first time following consultation with the State Department.Ā The update follows aĀ letter from the DepartmentĀ in May of 2017 confirming the Departmentā€™s review into any mishandling of classified information stemming from the use of Clintonā€™s non-government email server.Ā That letter, which responded to anĀ inquiry from Grassley, also outlined the review and adjudication process.
