Now, if Jill Kelley had classified info that would be a different story.
I does not matter if she has a clearance level sufficient to be privy. She must have a need to know AND authorization to possess.
There is a public speech that she gave around a year ago...I watched the clip of it...where she rattled off that she had a Top Secret SCI clearance, and higher. I just sat there and wondered why you’d go and brag about such. She was some public-attention whore...nothing less.
Because of the classified data...the Army will spend around six months studying where it came from. My guess is that she downloaded onto some kind of media (either a USB-stick or a CD). If this is the case, then she will end up in some court martial episode...like the punk kid over at Fort Meade is facing right now. At the very least...she gets kicked out of the Army because of the general attitude right now over stupid handling of classified material.
Now, on another front...the affair? If there’s any connection to the period when she was a Army officer, in uniform, then they can bring out another charge or two.
At the very least...her Army career is wrapped up and finished. Journalism career? I don’t know if any major newspaper will hire her for the foreseeable future. She probably ends up out in Idaho in three years...teaching at some community college.
