    The House will vote this week on a resolution to hold former State Department IT technician Bryan Pagliano in contempt of Congress, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy told reporters Monday. “We’ll be taking up contempt on Bryan Pagliano for his lack of attending,” McCarthy said, referring to a committee hearing Pagliano skipped. McCarthy provided no further details on plans for the vote. Pagliano was responsible for setting up Hillary Clinton’s private email server during her tenure as secretary of State. The former State Department employee declined to appear at an Oversight Committee hearing on Clinton's server earlier this month, in spite...

    The FBI on Friday afternoon released almost 200 pages of summaries of interviews done during its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server, including those with top aides Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills and Jake Sullivan. The interview for Justin Cooper, a former senior adviser to President Bill Clinton, is also included. Cooper registered the original clintonemail.com domain. In many of the documents, the name of the interviewee has been redacted. Several of the interviews with blocked-out names were with technicians at the Colorado-based firm that managed Clinton’s server. The documents contain several previously unknown details.

    Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Friday criticized President Obama's veto of legislation allowing families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia in U.S. courts, predicting Congress will quickly overturn the decision. “This is a disappointing decision that will be swiftly and soundly overturned in Congress," Schumer, expected to be the next Senate Democratic leader, said in a statement Friday. "I believe both parties will come together next week to make JASTA the law of the land." Schumer — echoing a familiar line from supporters of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) — added that "if the Saudis did...

    In a remarkable 2003 speech delivered to Yale University, former President Bill Clinton called for the establishment of a “global community,” praised the “openness of our borders to immigrants,” and declared that America “has greater obligations to open our borders.” In his address, Clinton plainly articulated his worldview and laid out his vision for the future. Clinton argued that the world currently relates to itself as “interdependent nations,” but that this model of interdependence lacks sufficient “integration.” Clinton declared that he considers the formation a “genuine global community”—complete with an “over-arching system” to regulate it—to be “the great mission of...

    Hillary Clinton won’t be taking a neurocognitive test, and releasing the results to the public — telling a reporter “there’s no need for that,” even after collapsing as she was leaving a 9/11 memorial event last week in Manhattan. Clinton made the comment, suggesting she will not be releasing any further medical information this presidential campaign, in an interview Wednesday with Florida’s WFTS ABC Action News.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has been a vocal backer of President Obama’s (ultimately successful) plan to import a minimum of 10,000 Syrian refugees by the end of the fiscal year, at one point accusing Republicans of “slamming the door on mothers and children.” But with just days remaining in the 2016 Fiscal Year, Pelosi’s own district has yet to resettle a single Syrian refugee. Since Oct. 1, 2015, more than 12,000 Syrian refugees have been placed in the U.S., according to data from the State Department’s Refugee Processing Center. San Francisco, California, which includes Pelosi’s district (CA-12), has taken...

    In his speech to the United Nations, President Barack Obama defended the increased globalization of the world’s nations, condemning the wave of populist nationalism that was growing in the world in response. Obama says globalization will continue growing rapidly, signaling the unstoppable march of progress. But he warned that nations who allow the wealthy to enjoy the benefits of globalism face challenges from their populace. Those people, he noted, were falling prey to an “alternative” narrative, propagated to fuel opposition. “Alternative visions of the world have pressed forward, both in the wealthiest countries and in the poorest,” he said. “Religious...

    The House Science Committee is demanding interviews this week with employees of the IT firm that managed Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Two of those employees, Paul Combetta and Bill Thornton, recently pleaded the Fifth Amendment when subpoenaed to testify about the server before the House Oversight Committee. Science Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) had originally demanded transcribed interviews with seven Platte River Networks employees in July, but has been rebuffed. But Wednesday reports that Reddit users have uncovered a post by Combetta asking how to modify certain emails for a “VERY VIP” client have led Smith to demand the...

    CNN is falsely accusing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump of calling for “racial profiling” in the wake of the recent terror attacks. In articles such as “Trump defends racial profiling in wake of bombs,” posted Tuesday morning, and in on-air commentary, CNN adopts the Hillary Clinton campaign’s rhetoric, and implicitly accepts the left-wing argument that profiling people based on country of origin or based on religion is necessarily “racial profiling,” and hence racist, and wrong. Trump’s exact quote, given to Fox News Fox and Friends on Monday morning, was: Our police are amazing. Our local police — they know who...

    The U.S. is in a fight with the Islamic State, but according to the White House it is a fight of words, not arms. “When it comes to ISIL (ISIS), we are in a fight — a narrative fight with them. A narrative battle,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest while appearing on CNN Monday, the day after the U.S. suffered two bombings in the New York metropolitan area and an Islamic State-linked terrorist in Minnesota went on a stabbing rampage.

    CNN’s Jake Tapper asked New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on State of the Union on Sunday morning about the supposed contrast between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in their responses to the explosions Saturday in New York, editing out Clinton’s reference to “bombings” to create a false distinction. Tapper cited Trump referring to a “bomb” in New York, then played a clip of Clinton criticizing him for saying that — leaving out Clinton’s reference, seconds before, to what she called “bombings.” Here is the Tapper’s question for Christie, with the edited Clinton clip: Tapper: There is a contrast, I would...

    Huffpo ^ | 05/09/2008 | E.P. Clapp Distinguished Professor of Politics, Occidental College
    Former journalist Sidney Blumenthal has been widely credited with coining the term “vast right-wing conspiracy” used by Hillary Clinton in 1998 to describe the alliance of conservative media, think tanks, and political operatives that sought to destroy the Clinton White House where he worked as a high-level aide. A decade later, and now acting as a senior campaign advisor to Senator Clinton, Blumenthal is exploiting that same right-wing network to attack and discredit Barack Obama. And he’s not hesitating to use the same sort of guilt-by-association tactics that have been the hallmark of the political right dating back to the...

    Hillary Clinton surrogate Sid Blumenthal personally pitched a reporter on the President Obama “birther” story when she was campaigning for president in 2008, a former Washington reporter said Thursday. The Clinton campaign and the media have consistently refuted Trump’s claim Clinton started the birther movement, which Trump re-upped Friday when he said for the first publicly that he believes Obama was born in the United States. “Hillary Clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy,” Trump said, drawing a slew of media fact checks almost immediately. “I finished it.” But former McClatchy Washington Bureau Chief James Asher has...

    Reporters bristled at their treatment during Donald Trump's campaign event Friday, where the GOP presidential nominee only briefly addressed his past skepticism of President Obama's birthplace and abruptly left without taking any questions. Trump then barred reporters from joining a tour of his new hotel, which prompted the pooled television reporters to erase their video from the tour, according to multiple reporters. “As the designated pool producer; attempted to go on pooled tour, as is customary. Was physically restrained from accompanying the camera,” ABC News journalist Candace Smith tweeted. “Blocked is perhaps the better term. Tried to go through the...

    Former Secretary of State Colin Powell complained to a friend that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton “screws up” everything she touches thanks to overwhelming personal hubris, a newly-leaked email reveals. Powell sent the email, one of thousands leaked by the organization DC Leaks, to private equity tycoon Jeffrey Leeds Aug. 18, 2015, a few days after Clinton’s private email server was seized by the FBI. Leeds remarked that Clinton’s email scandal was getting “worse every day” and that she “may be in serious trouble.” Powell responded saying Clinton’s problems were her own fault. “Everything HRC touches she kind of screws...

    Hillary Clinton has put physical distance between herself and her supporters as she continues to recover from pneumonia, nursing herself from inside her Chappaqua, New York, home. But large, concrete barriers outside the property and Secret Service officers occupying large black SUVs also block gawkers from getting too close. Onlookers and media can wander down Clinton's road until they reach the concrete structures. They must not, however, park on the street or set foot on the grass. Otherwise, police officers will come to shoo them away.

Woolsey, who served as director of the CIA from 1993 to 1995 and describes himself as a life-long Democrat, praised Trump’s commitment to ending defense budget cuts from sequestration.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday refuted claims that Democratic campaign memos, leaked this week by a hacker group, originated from her personal computer. The story can't be true, her office said, because Pelosi doesn't have a personal computer at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) headquarters, which was infiltrated earlier this summer by hackers thought to be tied to Russian intelligence. Pelosi has long warned that the hackers, who also tapped into files held by the Democratic National Committee, were attempting to sway the outcome of November's elections by embarrassing Democrats with a slow drip of leaked...

    Bill Clinton's staff used a decades-old federal government program, originally created to keep former presidents out of the poorhouse, to subsidize his family’s foundation and an associated business, and to support his wife’s private email server, a POLITICO investigation has found. Taxpayer cash was used to buy IT equipment — including servers — housed at the Clinton Foundation, and also to supplement the pay and benefits of several aides now at the center of the email and cash-for-access scandals dogging Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

    The FBI has uncovered evidence that foreign hackers penetrated two state election databases in recent weeks, prompting the bureau to warn election officials across the country to take new steps to enhance the security of their computer systems, according to federal and state law enforcement officials. The FBI warning, contained in a “flash” alert from the FBI’s Cyber Division, a copy of which was obtained by Yahoo News, comes amid heightened concerns among U.S. intelligence officials about the possibility of cyberintrusions, potentially by Russian state-sponsored hackers, aimed at disrupting the November elections. Those concerns prompted Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. economy expanded at a sluggish pace this spring as businesses sharply reduced their stockpiles of goods and spent less on new buildings and equipment. The Commerce Department said Friday that gross domestic product, the broadest measure of the economy, increased at an annual rate of 1.1 percent in the April-June quarter. That is slightly below its previous estimate last month of 1.2 percent growth.
