No record that Clinton, aides took required ethics training

WASHINGTON There is no evidence that Hillary Clinton or her top aides completed ethics training when they started at the State Department as required by federal law.

State Department records show only three of nine top Clinton aides took the mandated training for new employees. Records also suggest that none of seven top aides required to take subsequent annual training completed it.

No records indicate whether Clinton herself took any training.

Many of the aides still work for Clinton on her presidential campaign or are advising her in her bid for the White House against Republican Donald Trump in November.

The documents were obtained by the Republican National Committee, which filed a lawsuit to get them after a Freedom of Information Act request did not produce them.

    Ethics and Hillary do not belong in the same sentence.

    I would LOVE to see her take an ethics class. Bet she would catch fire like a vampire getting a tan. She is to ethics what her husband is to sexual harassment.

    .
    If any one of the TRAMPS aides took ethics training and a passing grade was 10 out of a hundred they all would need affirmative action assistance to attain the grade of 10.

    Shrillary and her aides scoff at these annoyances.

  • Curoius

    You know we could end this whole thing by doing a mass impeachment starting at the top and moving down..

    So, fire their asses: and let’s move on!.

    I’ll bet Obama and many of his buddies LACK ethical training also. Its why they operate on the end justifies the means protocols,

    Many on the right (conservatives, tea party) are all wrapped up in doing everything ethically and above board and by the book that they get their hands tied behind their backs (waiting upteen years for IRS to approve a foundation or charity

    Misappropriated from “The Treasure of Sierra Madre”—“ethics? I don’t need no stinking ethics”.

  • Timothy Thompson

    Of course they didn’t they work for Clinton and the word rules apply don’t apply.

  • Anna Nicole

    Just more evidence that she believes the rules don’t apply to her or her’s.

  • bob

    Give me a break, probably NOBODY in this administration took ANY ETHICS classes or even knows what ethics are.

    • GrizzMann

      They may have taken them, using 1984 as the text book.

      • bob

    • James West
