TRUMP & CLINTON BOTH UNDER FIRE OVER SECURITY BRIEFINGS

With both party conventions and candidate nominations out of the way, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will now receive government intelligence briefings.  The briefings will begin next week, and they will continue until Election Day.  The Republican and Democratic vice presidential candidates, Mike Pence and Tim Kaine, will also receive briefings.

As expected, neither party believes it’s a good idea to give the other party’s nominee access to such important information.  Democrats are stating Trump is not experienced enough to receive the sensitive information, and Republicans are claiming Hillary cannot be trusted.

On Thursday, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid called for Trump to get “fake briefings.” “I think that the man is a loose cannon,” said Senator Reid. “He’s done so much to hurt our country with our international relations.”
Earlier in July, House Speaker Paul Ryan formally requested Clinton not receive the briefings.  His request was based on Clinton’s use of a private email server for official business while secretary of state.
