Memo: State Department Hired Agents with Criminal Records

Memo: State Department Hired Agents with Criminal Records

And now we have a third scandal emanating from Hillary Clinton’s State Department. A shocking memo obtained by the New York Post says that the State Department hired an “alarming number of  law-enforcement agents with criminal or checkered backgrounds because of a flawed hiring process.”

The memo goes on to state that the troubling backgrounds can pose a problem if the agents are needed to testify at trials to assist prosecutors.

“Too many people entering the [Diplomatic Security and Information Management] communities end up as subjects of [Special Investigation Division] investigations and HR adjudications, become Giglio-impaired and can play only limited roles thereafter,” according to the memo.

“Giglio” refers to a US Supreme Court case dealing with jury notification that witnesses have made deals with the government to induce testimony.

Who was minding the store over there? On top of hiring criminals, our consulate in Benghazi was left unprotected and it was State that pushed to turn the CIA talking points surrounding Libya from truth to lie.

And it was just a few days ago that CBS News broke the story of the State Department covering up allegations of internal misconduct, including the solicitation of prostitution, drug abuse, and pedophilia.

Wasn’t is just a few months ago that the media was celebrating Hillary as The Greatest Secretary of State In the History of Secretary of States?

Why, yes — yes, it was.
