Need help cloning a github repo into sourcetree

Sourcetree will not allow me to clone a repository from github when I copy the URL into the box. It keeps asking me to log into my github account which I do and then it just asks me to log in 5 secs later and then again and again. My login credentials are definitely correct and I don't understand why it wont let me add this repository. Has anybody had similar issues.

Hi Jared, and welcome to the Community :) 

We need more info to find the root cause of this:

  1. Have you connected your Github account as explained at 
  2. Are you having these issues with any other repositories from Gothb or only this specific one?
  3. Are you on Windows or Mac?
  4. Have you tried cloning it from the command line? Do you get any error?

Let us know,
