Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton Will Receive Classified Briefings After DNC

The briefings are a part of the transition-of-power process.

“The briefings are traditionally given after nominating conventions have identified all the candidates,” the official said.

Former intelligence officials have expressed reservations about Trump and Clinton receiving the briefings, concerned about their ability to handle classified information.

“Briefings for the candidates will be provided on an even-handed, non-partisan basis,” the DNI said in its response to Ryan earlier this month.

FBI Director James Comey cleared Clinton of any criminal wrongdoing, but said she and her staff were "extremely careless" with their handling of classified information.
