    Bill Clinton’s administration gathered enough evidence to send a top-secret communique accusing Iran of facilitating the deadly 1996 Khobar Towers terrorist bombing, but suppressed that information from the American public and some elements of U.S. intelligence for fear it would lead to an outcry for reprisal, according to documents and interviews. Before Mr. Clinton left office, the intelligence pointing toward Iran’s involvement in the terror attack in Saudi Arabia that killed 19 U.S. servicemen and wounded hundreds was deemed both extensive and “credible,” memos show.

    Hopes ex-president can energize blacks, HispanicsThey’d kept him off the trail for months, but Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign is finally deploying former President Bill Clinton, accepting the political risks he brings as worthy tradeoff if he can shore up support for his wife among longtime Democrats and build enthusiasm among Hispanic and black voters. The man who just months ago said he’d be little more than a backstage adviser is now out doing interviews defending Mrs. Clinton and dabbling in critiques of the GOP presidential field. And his October schedule is shaping up to be his most high-profile on the...

    Last week, amid fulsome rhetoric concerning Pope Francis, Carly Fiorina, Ben Carson, Islam and assorted sundry items, the mainstream media generally disregarded the quiet return of a serious potential scandal, one that will be strong enough to shake the foundations of the Hillary Clinton campaign, and, in fact, may topple the Democratic front-runner, and her presidential aspirations for good. This overlooked scandal is not one of the newer variety concerning Benghazi, nor does it concern the e-mail tangle and the shifting rationales, sophistries, and alibis trotted out by Clinton campaign flunkies, desperately trying to explain the problem away, much like...

    Stalinist dictator Raul Castro was a busy man this week during his whirlwind tour of the city he craved to nuke. “My dream is to drop three atomic bombs on New York City,” sighed Raul Castro to a colleague in November of 1960. But in between speeches at the UN and meetings with Governor Cuomo and Bill de Blasio (the mayor of the city Castro longed to incinerate) the Communist mass-murderer was also buttonholed by Bill Clinton for a friendly chat. Reporting on these meetings, Cuba’s KGB-mentored media included an affectionate mention of Hillary Clinton, former senator with an especially...

    You know the saying: once is a fluke, twice is a trend. Yesterday, Stephen Colbert and First Lady Michelle Obama shared a laugh over Bill Clinton's "passion." On today's With All Due Respect, responding to Mark Halperin's report that Bill Clinton "keeps saying he doesn't know what Snapchat is," John Heilemann quipped "let's hope not, for his sake." For those who might not be familiar, Snapchat is an app that lets users send photos or videos that self-destruct within seconds—ideal for "sexting." All snickering aside, will Bill's wandering ways become an issue for Hillary? View the video here.

    Washington (CNN)—Bill Clinton hit Republican presidential contender Donald Trump for running a "fact-free" campaign, defending his wife Hillary Clinton in an interview Tuesday. The former president touted his wife's accomplishments as President Barack Obama's first secretary of state -- starting with sanctions against Iran -- as he lashed out at Trump for calling his wife's four-year tenure a failure in an interview with CNN's Eric Burnett. "Well the thing about branding is, you don't have to be -- you can be fact-free," Clinton said with a smile, drawing laughs from a crowd of dozens that watched the interview. It was...

    Wesley Clark the other day blamed the Bush administration for the intelligence failures leading to the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States. And Hillary Clinton said, darkly, that the administration's refusal to hand over documents to a 9/11 commission "unnecessarily raises suspicions that it has something to hide." Meanwhile, Condi Rice in a speech last week pointed to the failure to take terrorism seriously during the 1990s — in other words, she pointed to Clinton administration failures. The war over the war on terror has just begun. In this battle, it's useful to stick to specifics. Let's take,...

    In the last presidential election, the Republican candidate, Mitt Romney, received much derision when he announced in a debate that as governor of Massachusetts, his team assembled “a binderful of women” as the top applicants for state jobs. (The barbs weren’t all from those who prize the politically correct either. Two memorable photo-shop takeoffs took dead aim at the Clintons. One featured the former first lady on the phone saying, “No I don’t have the binderful of women.” Another featured former President Clinton himself giving his infamous smirk at the camera with the “quote” “Where is that binderful of women?”)...

    In our astounding book The Clintons’ War on Women, which will be published by Skyhorse on October 13th, we demonstrate how shamelessness is a condition that the Clintons have perfected to an art form. Take, for example, Hillary’s recent pledge, as reported by Ruby Cramer, to crack down on campus rape and her encouraging words to sexual assault survivors: “Don’t let anyone silence your voice. You have the right to be heard … to be believed. And we’re with you.” In fact, we argue, Hillary Clinton has enabled rape and denigrated sex victims. Ironically, Bill Clinton’s first alleged rape was...

You have a right to be heard. You have a right to be believed. We’re with you.” So, Hillary Clinton, a willing participant in the 1992 Clinton for President Campaign’s plan to handle “bimbo eruptions,” is supposedly concerned about victims of sexual assault. She is so skilled at lying that she does not realize the hypocrisy so evident in her new campaign message. In defending her husband from the...

Her every attempt to extricate herself from the burgeoning email scandal only seems to sink her prospects deeper and faster. Now, even Joe Biden is beginning to look hungrily at an entry into the race. The latest round of revelations—significantly headlined by the New York Times—shows that Madam Secretary’s private email server housed Top Secret emails. This is directly contrary to what she has been assuring the world all along. She will find it harder to dismiss the Times as the house organ...

Osorio is currently in prison for fraud. OPIC is an independent agency but submits its budget through the State Department. The Clintons’ efforts to push the OPIC loan...

    Thousands of Hillary Clinton's private emails released by the State Department Monday evening illustrate the deep ties Clinton maintained to her family's foundation while serving as secretary of state. Clinton seemingly kept close tabs on the Clinton Foundation's activities — a situation the Obama administration had hoped to avoid when bringing Clinton into the State Department in 2009. Much of her involvement with the foundation focused on its work in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake there. The Clinton Foundation was heavily involved in projects across Haiti after the disaster, many of which have subsequently been criticized. Clinton referred to the...

    Former president Bill Clinton had a private telephone conversation in late spring with Donald Trump at the same time that the billionaire investor and reality-television star was nearing a decision to run for the White House, according to associates of both men. Four Trump allies and one Clinton associate familiar with the exchange said that Clinton encouraged Trump’s efforts to play a larger role in the Republican Party and offered his own views of the political landscape. Clinton’s personal office in New York confirmed that the call occurred in late May, but an aide to Clinton said the 2016 race...

    Bill Clinton already had Donald Trump's cellphone number. The two have been buddies for years, which means Clinton also had Trump's number in a larger sense. Clinton knew exactly who he was talking to when he and Trump had a phone chat back when The Donald was deciding whether to run for president this time around.

    Here’s a thought experiment: Suppose during tomorrow’s GOP presidential debate, Megyn Kelly asks each candidate to name the American politician or politicians whom he respects and trusts sufficiently to seek political advice from. What would the nomination prospects be for a candidate who answered: Bill Clinton? Non-existent, I say. And the answer would go down as among the worst gaffes in the long history of presidential debates. It turns out, though, that Donald Trump did turn to Bill Clinton for political advice as he was deciding whether to run for president. The Washington Post reports, and sources in the Clinton...

    The FBI has begun looking into the security of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private e-mail setup, contacting in the past week a Denver-based technology firm that helped manage the unusual system, according to two government officials. Also last week, the FBI contacted Clinton’s lawyer, David Ken­dall, with questions about the security of a thumb drive in his possession that contains copies of work e-mails Clinton sent during her time as secretary of state. The FBI’s interest in Clinton’s e-mail system comes after the intelligence community’s inspector general referred the issue to the Justice Department in July. Intelligence officials expressed concern that...

    The liberal media feeding frenzy about a quarter-century-old alleged marital rape involving GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, and former wife Ivana, has a fury that was strangely absent when Bill Clinton was credibly accused of rape by Juanita Broaddrick in a Little Rock hotel room in 1978 when William Jefferson Clinton was attorney general of Arkansas. Ivana says her alleged “rape” never happened, Juanita Broaddrick says hers did. So why aren’t Hillary and Bill being peppered with questions about it as Donald and Ivana are? Perhaps because unlike liberal nemesis Trump’s case, Clinton’s more credidble story is now considered “old...

    "Those who cannot remember the past," the philosopher George Santayana reminded us, "are condemned to repeat it." The young, particularly the young voters of 2016, have no memory of Bill Clinton, and we're all about to be treated to "a little deja vu all over again." The many sexual misadventures of Bill, who was the Bill Cosby of his day, and the excuses and enabling behavior of Hillary Clinton on his behalf, will come not as old news but as the newest of scandals. William Faulkner observed that the past is not dead because it is not even past --...

    SALON: The banner on the Drudge Report this morning is that Kathleen Willey is starting a site to collect harassment claims against Bill Clinton. New York magazine, meanwhile, has the stories of 35 women who say they were raped or assaulted by Bill Cosby. I wonder if you see a connection between the two stories: Would Bill Clinton’s exploits be viewed more like Cosby’s if he was in the White House now, instead of in the 1990s? PAGLIA: Right from the start, when the Bill Cosby scandal surfaced, I knew it was not going to bode well for Hillary’s campaign,...

    Donald Trump's ex-wife, Ivana, recently denied a 30-year-old allegation that Donald Trump raped her. The allegation, according to the New York Daily News, stems from the book "The Last Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump" by Harry Hurt III. The News wrote: "Hurt's 1993 book ... cited a divorce deposition, in which Ivana Trump claimed her then-husband sexually attacked her. ... In a rage, Trump allegedly tore out clumps of his wife's hair, the book claimed, and ripped off her clothes and assaulted her. 'According to versions she repeats to some of her closest confidantes, 'he raped me.'...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Author Ronald Kessler defends secret service agents and makes some sensational claims about former Presidents in his new book, The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of the Presidents. Kessler told Chris Stigall on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT that the recent struggles of the agency detailed in the media is more the fault of management culture than individual agents. “The culture that has led to this corner-cutting, it’s a culture within the management, not among the agents. Agents…are patriots. They sign up to take a bullet for the President. The management has the...
