    Police in Harris County, Tex. have charged 30-year-old Shannon J. Miles with capital murder in the point-blank execution killing of sheriff’s deputy Darren Goforth. Goforth was on duty and pumping gas at Chevron in a suburb northwest of Houston at about 8:30 p.m. Friday when Miles allegedly approached him from behind and shot him in the back of the head. Miles then shot Goforth several more times before fleeing in a red Ford Ranger, police believe. Harris County sheriff Ron Hickman said at a press conference Saturday afternoon that a motive for the killing is still unknown. But he said...

    Hillary Clinton is resetting her campaign strategy with aggressive attacks against Republicans to move the conversation away from questions about the email controversy that has dogged her for months. By comparing Republicans to terrorists and calling the GOP "the party of Trump," Clinton grabbed headlines and sought to assuage doubts about her campaign, even while it has lost ground in recent polls. Democratic strategists say while her talking points are the same as they have been, her delivery, emphasis and posture has changed. “The more the discussion is about the differences between her and the Republican field on women’s health...

    Hillary Clinton bashed her Republican presidential rivals and compared their views on women’s issues to those of “terrorist groups.” “Extreme views about women, we expect them from some of the terrorist groups, we expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world,” she said Thursday during a rally in Cleveland. “It’s a little hard to take coming from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States, but they espouse out-of-date and out-of-touch policies. They are dead wrong for 21st century America.” She also criticized some of her main GOP rivals for their stances...

    Warped TV reporter Vester Lee Flanagan exasperated bosses with his 'stiff and nervous' delivery, his inability to use a teleprompter - and by wearing a President Obama badge during an election report, Daily Mail Online can reveal. Management at WDBJ dubbed the failed newsman the 'human tape recorder' because he frequently parroted what interviewees had told him rather than doing his own journalism. Flanagan, 41, clashed repeatedly with photojournalists, belittling them in public and intimidating them with his violent temper, according to internal reports. He was also censured for wearing an Obama sticker while recording a segment at a polling...

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump fired back at Fox News on Tuesday after the network's head and several of its star personalities criticized him in an ongoing feud over anchor Megyn Kelly. The celebrity real estate tycoon said he "totally" disagreed with a statement from Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes that defended Kelly's "tough but fair" questioning of Trump at the GOP debate Aug. 6. "I do not think Megyn Kelly is a quality journalist. I think her questioning of me, despite all of the polls saying I won the debate, was very unfair," Trump said in his...

    Former intelligence and military officials were swift to reply Friday to Hillary Clinton’s contention that government over-classification of materials are “the real problem,” not her use of an unsecured private email server to conduct official business during her four years as secretary of state. “Our ridiculous classification rules” are “the real problem,” she tweeted this morning, quoting a former Justice Department official. Senior military and intelligence officials immediately fired back. “It’s not up to her to decide what level it’s classified at. It’s up to her to obey the law, and clearly she did not,” Lt. Col. Col James Williamson...

    Planned Parenthood is threatening legal action against the pro-life organization that has released a series of secretly recorded videos scrutinizing the health provider’s fetal tissue donation program. In an exclusive interview with The Hill, Planned Parenthood's executive vice president Dawn Laguens said the group is "considering everything" in going after the Center For Medical Progress, the group behind the release of videos. "I absolutely do believe that they have violated laws in terms of how they secured these videos," she said in an interview at the group's Washington D.C.'s headquarters.

    An attorney for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl said Thursday recent comments made by Donald Trump threaten his client's right to a fair trial, after the presidential candidate called Bergdahl a "dirty, rotten traitor." At a town hall in New Hampshire on Wednesday, Trump referred to Bergdahl as a "dirty, rotten traitor" and appeared to pantomime his execution while criticizing the soldier's release as part of a prisoner exchange with the Taliban. Attorney Eugene R. Fidell said in a statement that his client was unable to speak out in his own defense because he is facing a preliminary hearing in the...

Judge Emmet Sullivan told the department to “establish a dialogue” with the FBI about the machine, and be prepared to demand that the FBI turn over documents that may be related to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. “I'm surprised that State didn't do that already,” Sullivan told government lawyers. “If you can get the information as result of a dialogue with the FBI...

    Abedin was working for the State Department full-time while simultaneously working for two private corporations: a consulting firm called Teneo established by one of Bill Clinton’s former aides, and the notorious “charity” known as the Clinton Foundation. The possible conflicts of interest from this… unique arrangement are so obvious that calling them “possible” conflicts of interest is a bit of a joke, especially as it remains unclear what invaluable one-of-a-kind contributions to the State Department Abedin was supposedly making.

The filing came a day before officials will have to appear in court to detail the steps they took to try to track down Mrs. Clinton’s emails, and whatever computers or other devices she may have used to send them.

    The State Department says it has more than 81,000 emails from a top Clinton aide at the State Department despite the agency’s past claims that it did not have such records. The discrepancy, which has led to accusations that the State Department is either “lying” or “incompetent,” is laid out in the agency’s Aug. 13 response in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by Gawker. In Sept. 2012, the website filed a FOIA request for emails Clinton aide Philippe Reines sent to reporters at various news agencies. The State Department responded in July 2013, saying that it found...

    Multiple high-dollar donors to the Clinton Foundation are associated with the New York Times, including the Times’ top shareholder, Carlos Slim. Slim, a Mexican telecom tycoon whose net worth of nearly $80 billion makes him the second richest man in the world, became the top shareholder of the New York Times earlier this year after he doubled his shares to take control of 16.8 percent of the company. Not only has Slim contributed between $1,000,001 and $5,000,000 to the Clinton Foundation, but his company Telmex has contributed an additional grant between $1,000,001 and $5,000,000 through its foundation. Slim has also...

    EXCERPT BAIER: That sounds like Nancy Pelosi. You’re going to find out after you pass it. MCCONNELL: No, no. It hadn’t been finalized yet. BAIER: But you passed it though… MCCONNELL: What Trade Promotion Authority is is a process to deal with it. The trade agreement will be completely transparent. We’ll have a chance to vote whether to approve it or not. BAIER: So all this criticism about we don’t know what’s in it yet, you discount that? MCCONNELL: I don’t buy that because the agreement hasn’t been finalized. What we’ve been voting on is a procedure that allows it...

    Shock video posted online shows two women engage in a brutal fight at an Indiana Walmart Thursday, but how one of the women’s sons reacted might be the most alarming. It wasn’t clear what prompted the brawl, but video captured by an onlooker shows the two women fighting and wrestling each other to the ground at a Beech Grove store. Shortly into the video, a boy emerges and his mother, who was atop the other woman, instructed him to punch her opponent in the face. The boy obliged and was seen throughout the two videos repeatedly striking the woman on...

    Republicans in Congress are worried the Supreme Court will hand them a major headache this month if it rules against the federal health insurance exchanges in more than 30 states, ending subsidies for millions of people. While the Affordable Care Act remains broadly unpopular, two new polls show a majority of Americans don’t want to do away with its subsidies, a core component of the law. This poses a conundrum for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio). They are under pressure from colleagues up for reelection in swing states and districts to extend the subsidies,...
  • Exclusive: Alleged Dennis Hastert Sex Abuse Victim Is Named By Family

    In Steve Reinboldt’s 1970 high school yearbook, wrestling coach Dennis Hastert wrote that Steve was his “great, right hand man” as the student equipment manager of the Yorkville, Illinois wrestling team. But Steve was also a victim of sexual abuse at the hands of Hastert, Steve’s sister said today in an interview with ABC News. It is the first time an alleged Hastert victim has been identified by name since his indictment for lying to the FBI and violating federal banking laws to cover-up past misconduct. Hastert, due in court next week, has not responded to the allegations. In an...

    My friends, it’s come to this. And why shouldn’t it? The polls are disastrous for Democrats. While Hillary Clinton surely dominates the competition in the invisible primary, her internal polling figures belie her suitability (and dependability) for the job she now seeks. At the same time, now that Elizabeth Warren has told the progressive base in no uncertain terms that ‘no’ means ‘no,’ worried Democrats are roving the country looking for someone—perhaps anyone—to take her on. And whom are they approaching? The New York Post reports (via WZ): New York Dems friendly to [Michael] Bloomberg have approached him to gauge...

    A top State Department spokeswoman took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to blast the “main contentions” of a New York Times story on Iran, firing a slew of tweets at reporter David Sanger. Marie Harf, State's senior adviser for strategic communications, took issue with a Tuesday report from Sanger and William Broad showing Iran's nuclear stockpile increased about 20 percent amid negotiations between Iran, the U.S. and several other countries. In five follow-up tweets directed at Sanger, Harf took issue with parts of the report that said “Western officials and experts cannot quite figure out why” Iran's stockpile had risen....
