WASHINGTON (CNN) - Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has told Sen. Hillary Clinton, a Democratic candidate for president, that her passport file was breached in 2007, the senator's office said in a statement on Friday.
"The State Department will be briefing Senator Clinton's staff this afternoon to provide details about the recent unauthorized breaches of passport records," the statement said. "Senator Clinton will closely monitor the State
Department's investigation into this and the other breaches of private passport information."
The news came a day after the State Department revealed that two of its contractors working for the department were fired and a third was disciplined after they accessed Sen. Barack Obama's passport file without authorization.
