    The government watchdog group Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Justice (DOJ) seeking all records its has on the June 27, 2016 meeting between President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch in her airplane, a meeting that occurred while the FBI was investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, a potential national security crime. The airplane meeting took place on the tarmac at the Phoenix Harbor International Airport, several days before Hillary Clinton was interviewed by the FBI. Several months after the gathering, Lynch told the media that...

    FBI Director James Comey said Wednesday he plans to serve his entire 10-year term, even as controversy swirls over his attempt to rebut President Donald Trump’s claim that the Obama administration tapped his phones during the election. “You’re stuck with me for another 6½ years,” Comey said during a cybersecurity conference at Boston College. Comey was appointed 3½ years ago by then-President Barack Obama. Controversy erupted last weekend after Trump tweeted that Obama had tapped his phones at Trump Tower during the election. Trump offered no evidence of his claim. Comey asked the Justice Department to publicly reject the allegation...

    The State Department’s second-ranking diplomat in Libya on the day that terrorists attacked the U.S. facilities in Benghazi and killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods says a key lesson Americans should take from that event is that officials in Washington, D.C. have a responsibility to make sure Americans serving their country abroad have the ability to protect themselves. “That did not happen in Benghazi,” says Gregory Hicks, who was the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli on Sept. 11, 2012. […] Hicks told CNSNews.com that he and Stevens saw the move...

    Clinton's secret arms dealing -- and how it led to disaster in Libya. Hillary Clinton led the charge in the Obama administration to go to war in Libya. Her objective was to overthrow the regime of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi. Not one to be deterred by opponents in the Pentagon and Congress to her reckless interventionist plans, Hillary decided to end-run them. Her State Department helped facilitate what Andrew P. Napolitano in his scathing article has called “Hillary’s secret war.” When the secret war began to backfire, as arms ended up in the hands of anti-American jihadists, Hillary Clinton and other...

    Last month, I retired from the State Department after 25 years of public service as a Foreign Service officer. As the Deputy Chief of Mission for Libya, I was the last person in Tripoli to speak with Ambassador Chris Stevens before he was murdered in the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on our Benghazi post. On this, the fourth anniversary of the Benghazi tragedy, I would like to offer a different explanation for Benghazi’s relevance to the presidential election than is usually found in the press.

  • BREAKING: 1 Hillary Email SHOWED Terrorists How to Kill Amb. Chris Stevens

    09/04/2016 4:27:47 PM PDT · by BlackFemaleArmyCaptain · 164 replies
    An email released Monday pertaining to the Benghazi investigation from Hillary Clinton’s private email server revealed that a message detailing the location of murdered Ambassador Chris Stevens passed through the unsecured server, raising the possibility that terrorists could have intercepted the message. According to Breitbart, the April 10, 2011, email from State Department employee Timmy Davis was forwarded to the server by Clinton’s aide, Huma Abedin. “The situation in Ajdabiyah has worsened to the point where Stevens is considering departure from Benghazi,” Davis’ email read. “The envoy’s delegation is currently doing a phased checkout (paying the hotel bills, moving some...

    DAILY MAIL ^ | 22 May 2015
    Among the nearly 900 pages of Hillary Clinton's emails the U.S. State Department released on Friday is one that indicates she may have been confused, exhausted or careless on the September 2012 night when four Americans died in a Benghazi, Libya terror attack. As U.S. ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three other personnel lay dead and America's diplomatic outpost there lay in smoldering ruins, Clinton asked her three closest aides for advice about how to announce the death of 'Chris Smith.' That name – the wrong one – was the subject line of the email Clinton sent them as...
  • Clinton's 'Moscow Spring' ended as Putin returned to power

    Associated Press ^ | Aug 7, 2016 8:57 AM EDT | Bradley Klapper and Matthew Lee
    As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton basked in a diplomatic “Moscow Spring,” seizing on Vladimir Putin’s break from the presidency to help seal a nuclear arms-control treaty and secure Russia’s acquiescence to a NATO-led military intervention in Libya. But when Putin returned to the top job, things changed. Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, has vowed to stand up to Putin if elected, drawing on her four years of ups and downs as the public face of President Barack Obama’s first-term “reset” with Russia. By comparison, her Republican opponent, Donald Trump, has rung alarm bells in Washington and Europe with his...

    Looking ahead to the next installment of e-mails from WikiLeaks As U.S. armed forces attack ISIS in Libya, WikiLeaks is poised to remind us that ISIS is in Libya — indeed, that ISIS is ISIS — thanks to disastrous policies championed by Hillary Clinton as President Obama’s secretary of state. Also raised, yet again, is the specter of Mrs. Clinton’s lying to Congress and the American people — this time regarding a matter some of us have been trying for years to get answers about: What mission was so important the United States kept personnel in the jihadist hellhole of...

    Attorney General Loretta Lynch is repeatedly deflecting questions about the conclusion of the Justice Department’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. Despite repeated prodding from Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee, Lynch said that as attorney general it would be inappropriate for her to comment on specifics of the investigation. …

    President Obama said Saturday that he is "concerned" by the FBI assessment that the State Department has acted carelessly in handling classified information. "I am concerned," he told reporters at a news conference in Warsaw Saturday, according to Reuters . But he cast the problem as a government-wide struggle to keep up technology and the fast-paced flow of information. "The advent of email and texts and smart phones is just generating enormous amounts of data," Obama said, which is "putting enormous pressure on the department to sort through it, classify it properly." In concluding the FBI's investigation into former Secretary...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said at his press conference on Wednesday that Congress will “look into” whether Congress can deny former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton access to classified information, if she becomes the presidential nominee, saying, “it’s the least we can do.” […] “I’ve just got to say, from my own experience, you get access to deeply classified material once you leave the convention as the nominee, on a regular basis,” he said. “It’s part of a transition government.”“With no indictment occurring, but a discussion or a call for administrative action, I think it’s the least we can...

    No one at the White House knew that FBI Director James Comey was going to speak on Tuesday, never mind what he’d say, White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters on Tuesday. “With regard to a reaction from the White House, I don’t have an official reaction to share,” he said. “The reason for that is simply that, while the FBI is completing their investigation, the career prosecutors at the Department of Justice still have to make a final determination about how and whether to proceed. “And we have gone to great lengths to avoid the appearance of interfering with...

    Shortly after U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens was slain during an attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi last September, his sister Anne Stevens received a call from Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Stevens, a Seattle doctor, recalled Clinton saying that “justice would be done” for Chris Stevens’ death. But those words struck Stevens as exactly wrong. “This was not at all how my brother would have reacted — I never heard him talk like that,” said Stevens, a specialist in autoimmune conditions at Seattle Children’s.

    Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday that the long-awaited report from the House Select Committee on Benghazi “found nothing” new on the Sept. 11, 2012, attack that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, during her tenure as secretary of state. And Stevens’ family agrees. “I do not blame Hillary Clinton or [former Defense Secretary] Leon Panetta,” Anne Stevens, MD, Chris’ sister who has served as the family spokesperson since his death, told the New Yorker’s Robin Wright. “They were balancing security efforts at embassies and missions around the world. And their staffs were doing their best to provide what...

    Something stinks about this interview to Heaven's ceilings. Ambassador Chris Steven's sister Anne gave an interview yesterday to online magazine the New Yorker, where she told everyone to stop blaming Hillary Clinton for what happened in Benghazi. She desires Americans to get past the death of her brother as Hillary has done the best job possible in clearing up the incident and it also seems she wants to move forward. There's just one thing wrong with this. I don't believe this woman nor do I think she came up with this story on her own and I am not thinking...

    Fox News ^ | May 25, 2016 | (Chad Pergram, AP)
    The State Department watchdog, in an extensive and detailed report, accused Hillary Clinton of flouting federal records rules and cybersecurity guidelines with her exclusive use of personal email for government business while secretary of state. The forthcoming inspector general audit, a copy of which was obtained Wednesday by FoxNews.com, faults Clinton and her predecessors for poorly managing email and other computer information. The report says the department was “slow to recognize and to manage effectively the legal requirements and cybersecurity risks associated with electronic data communications.” It cites “longstanding, systemic weaknesses” related to communications that started before Clinton's tenure. But...

    The U.S. military acted properly on the night of the deadly 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, according to leaked testimony from a retired, three-star Army general who served as chief lawyer for Republicans on the House committee investigating the attacks. Retired Army Lt. Gen. Dana Chipman “repeatedly commended the military’s actions on the night of the attacks during closed interviews with Defense Department officials,” including a Jan. 8 interview with former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Democrats on the committee say. […] The Democrats’ letter quotes Chipman as telling Panetta: “I think you ordered exactly the right forces to move out...
