Six of Clinton's aides during her time in the State Department have no records to indicate they took the required ethics courses. And some of aides are now part of her campaign. Makes sense, right?
The six aides who had no record of attending the ethics courses were Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills; Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin; Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy Jake Sullivan; Special Representative Kris Balderston; Director of Policy Planning Anne-Marie Slaughter; and Special Assistant Caitlin Klevorick.
None of them are with the State Department. Sullivan and Abedin are part of Clinton's presidential campaign.
McClatchy first reported the findings.
Deputy Chief of Protocol Dennis Cheng, Assistant Secretary Andrew Shapiro and Deputy Assistant Secretary Philippe Reines all participated in the initial training, but there are no records confirming they continued to take those classes.
Yet, the White House is continuing to make excuses for them, claiming that the absence of records might be because they switched to an online format. Still, you'd think there would be some sort of record. If Clinton can't be trusted with something this small, can she really be trusted with an entire country?
No, she can't.
