Hillary Clinton’s vetting process was a little excessive, to say the least.
According to POLITICO, anyone who was considered as a VP pick on the Clinton ticket had to:
- Turn over every password to any social media accounts held by every family member.
- List every piece of property they’ve ever owned.
- Turn over copies of every resume they might have sent out in the past ten years.
- List every business partner they’ve ever had.
- Name every gift they have ever received.
- Be willing to engage in five weeks of questions and limitless follow-ups
- Meet with campaign chairman John Podesta and lawyer Jim Hamilton.
- And finally, pitch to Hillary an answer to her simple question: “Why do you want the job?”
Reactions from Twitter were on point, as usual:

Hillary VP finalists were asked to give her their web passwords. Those who did were deemed too dumb for the job. https://t.co/Ow3I3tj9ls

Sounds like a thorough vetting job, but does that explain why her VP pick thinks she should face consequences for mishandling classified information?
