"First, remember: Cheryl Mills was allowed, at the request of Hillary Clinton, to keep her SECURITY CLEARANCE after Mills left the State Department to found the BlackIvy Group! Let that sink in.
Cheryl Mills continued to have access to classified information regarding US Dept. of State business while she was setting up this group."
And I'm telling you this is 100% normal, it happens 1000 times a day
Senior Clinton Aide maintained top secret clearance
Under normal circumstances, Mills would have had her clearance terminated when she left the department. But in January 2014, according to the State Department letter, Clinton designated Mills “to assist in her research.” Mills was the one who reviewed Clinton’s emails before select documents were handed over to the State Department, and others were deleted.
In one instance, her chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, told State Department records specialists she wanted to see all documents requested on the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, and later demanded that some be held back.
In another case, Ms. Mills’s staff negotiated with the records specialists over the release of documents about former President Bill Clinton’s speaking engagements—also holding some back.
An official dealing with potential document releases described one of them as being “of interest on the 7th Floor”—a reference to the secretary’s office. A colleague replied that the records were set for release but added: “I believe, though, that this is still pending with Cheryl Mills’ office…. The real action, for now, is with Cheryl’s office.” The focus of the request is unclear.
A spokesman for Mrs. Clinton, Nick Merrill, said, “The State Department takes FOIA requests very seriously, and has a rigorous process in place for handling the thousands of requests that come in. Secretary Clinton’s State Department took that process seriously and made it a priority, and to suggest otherwise would be wrong.”
Later, on Tuesday evening, Mr. Merrill added that Ms. Mills—a longtime aide to the Clintons who is on the board of the Clinton Foundation—“did not inappropriately interfere with the FOIA process” and “has spent her career contributing to the greater good.”
Ms. Mills, this person added, told a records specialist that if he released records she wanted held back, Mrs. Clinton’s office wouldn’t comply with any future document requests on any topic.
senior vice president (past)
The privately held company Oxygen Media was founded in 1998 by former Nickelodeon executive Geraldine Laybourne, talk show host Oprah Winfrey, and producers Marcy Carsey, Tom Werner and Caryn Mandabach (of Carsey-Werner fame). Geraldine Laybourne was the service's founder, chairwoman, and CEO, staying with the channel until the NBCUniversal sale. The company's cable network Oxygen launched on February 2, 2000.
"Women who work on their feet -- nurses, teachers -- strongly prefer Hillary," says Geraldine Laybourne, founder and former chief executive officer of Oxygen Media LLC, now a unit of NBC Universal, who's helping the Clinton campaign. The goal, she says, is to "make visible that women in business support Hillary" in order to build that base.
