ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Hillary Clinton may have resigned her secretary role at the State Department in 2013 — but her access to top secret and classified information didn’t end then.

Under Barack Obama, she was allowed to continue to view highly sensitive intel documents for years — well past her announced run for the presidency in April 2015, according to Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa.
