As presidential nominee, Clinton gets first national security briefing

Hillary Clinton on Saturday received her first national security briefing, since becoming the Democratic presidential nominee.

Clinton, who routinely received such briefings as secretary of state, was briefed at an FBI facility in White Plains, N.Y., near her family’s upstate New York home.

Clinton attended the roughly 2-and-half-hour meeting alone and did not speak with reporters afterward. She is expected to travel by motorcade later today to the Hamptons.

The campaing has yet to comment on the meeting but issued a short statement that in part said the candidate met with "a handful of officials from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence."

Republican nominee Donald Trump had his first briefing earlier this month.

The briefings have been customary for presidential nominees so the next commander in chief has an understanding of the country's national security apparatus.
