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.

Look at this! This is not a big deal and Clinton really does not care about it!
But why is Obama so nervous?
What is he hiding? He has some secrets?
American people want to know him more! This guy has no credit at all
First Obama, now Clinton's too...something is really going on...I think that the tide is turning...
I wonder why Hillary Camp didn't make a fuzz ...
The Republicans are spying on the Democrats again. It's Nixon all over again. But what do you expect from a surveillance society? You are spied on all the time and don't even know it.
I guarantee you this will NOT get the coverage that Obama's breach did because she simply is not St. Barack.
For those Obamanicans who are blaming Hillary for the breach... SHAME ON YOU. ... Obama is becoming so desperate! Before you balme someone.. ANSWER FIRST and Be honest to AMERICA.
well that just sucks for all those people screaming the Clinton's were behind the Obama breach. The Clinton's were the first victims this time. Guess those Obama folks will have to turn this around somehow, as they always do.
OH YEAH? I guess the Clinton's did this too? You stupid Obama supporters. You might as well get ready to go down in a miserable defeat. Even Bill Richardson's (has the man lost his Mind?) supposed endorsement today is not going to help Obama. The New Mexico State has already chose their nominee. HILLARY. Why do you think she is leading in popular votes by 250,000. If the race ends with her ahead who do you think the Super Delegates will have to go with? The people, that's right stupid. HILLARY 08
oh, lets do what the Obama Cult did last night....I bet it was Obama who did it. You cant trust him!!!
Serious..this is kinda scary!
Nixon's "dirty tricks" never died. They just keep on keepin' on.
Maybe this is NOT an attack by Clinton. Maybe it's good old-fashioned Bush hi-jinx. Creepy. They do illegally wiretap, so who knows.
Poor Obama - no more sympathy for you. It happens to everyone. Your ploy to garnish sympathy didn't work. ha ha!
Maybe this can unite the Deocrates against the Republicans.
Will CNN cover an apology from Rice to Clinton also? Or will the pro Obama network hide the story on the back burner???
At least they're equal opportunity criminals...nice to know they didn't discriminate between illegally opening Obama's files and Clinton's files.
Quick lets blame Obama. Must be something sinnister going on in the Obama camp? Just making fun of the Obama-bots and how quickly they like to throw stuff. LOL
Did that have anything to to with Mr. Bush's "spy on Americans"
Okay Clinton supporters, how do you feel about the ONE TIME her file was breached? Go ahead, cry holy terror about it. Perhaps now you see why this is such a big deal.
No one should ever breach another persons private information!
The government needs to investigate fully and prosecute anyone who has broken the law. Our private information needs to be protected, and people who violate protected privacy should be made public.
What CNN? NO, headline apology for Clinton??
Thank you, once again, for your unbiased approach towards Hillary Clinton.
While it is appalling that this has happened to both senators, I am glad that it wasn't just Sen. Obama. Therefore, people can't accuse of being a part of the great conspiracy against him!!!
Hillary will play the victim. She's so predictable.
Seriously, Hillary are you trying to get attention or are you covering up the fact that you had something to do with the Obama infraction?
These guys where googling in the state department computer LOL...
