Trump says Clinton shouldn’t get security briefings

Donald Trump says he has a “real problem” with Hillary Clinton’s access to security briefings as a presidential nominee, saying she is “probably hacked.”

Speaking to reporters in Miami Wednesday, Trump suggests that Clinton is a security risk because she used a private email server while secretary of state. The FBI found that government secrets passed through the server in her home when she blended official and personal work. FBI Director Eric Holder said he did not charge Clinton because the probe found no intent to expose classified information.

Trump on Wednesday expresses outrage that she is receiving briefings through “people with great knowledge of the inner workings of our country and our security.”

Republican and Democratic presidential nominees get national security briefings in part so they are ready to govern if elected.
