Hillary Clinton was a terrible Secretary of State

Power Line:
More from today’s FBI report on its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State. The agency interviewed a Special Agent who previously worked for the State Department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security. The agent offered a devastating picture of Hillary’s conduct at the State Department.

From her own experience, and information obtained through [ ] and other agents, [ ] described a “stark difference” between [Condoleezza] RICE and CLINTON with regard to obedience to security and diplomatic protocols. RICE observed strict adherence to State Department security and diplomatic protocols while CLINTON frequently and “blatantly” disregarded them.

For example, it is standard security and diplomatic protocol for the Secretary of State to ride in the armored limousine with the local U.S. ambassador when traveling in countries abroad. It is seen as diplomatic protocol for the Secretary of State to arrive at foreign diplomatic functions with the local ambassador; however, CLINTON refused to do so, instead choosing to be accompanied in the limousine by her Chief of Staff, HUMA ABEDIN. This frequently resulted in complaints by ambassadors who were insulted and embarrassed by this breach of protocol. [ ] explained that CLINTON’s protocol breaches were well known throughout Diplomatic Security and were “abundant.”

[ ] explained that ABEDIN possessed “much more power” over CLINTON’s staff and schedule than other former chiefs of staff. [ ] believed that ABEDIN herself was often responsible for overriding security and diplomatic protocols on behalf of CLINTON.

There is more including a copy of the FBI document revealing her misconduct.  This follows reports that she was abusive and insulting toward those who hired to protect her.  Similar conduct has been alleged in her term as First Lady.
