A former White House counsel believes Hillary Clinton should have her security clearance revoked due to the FBI’s assessment that she was “extremely careless” with classified information as secretary of state.

C. Boyden Gray, who worked in the White House as legal counsel for both President Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, said that Clinton should no longer receive daily intelligence briefings after FBI Director James Comey revealed the agency’s finding from its investigation that she was “extremely careless” with “very sensitive, highly classified information.”

“I don’t recall ever giving a security clearance to somebody that has been found to have been extremely careless in the handling of sensitive material,” Gray said in an interview with theWashington Free Beacon. “It would be impossible to do.”

If Clinton is elected president this November, she will not be required to have a security clearance for access to top secret information, but that is not yet the case. Although it has been customary for candidates from both parties to receive security briefings during the election, Gray said an exception should be made for Clinton.
