    Washington (CNN)Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley took a major shot at Hillary Clinton on Sunday, saying the country needs a "new perspective" and "new leadership" in the 2016 election. "Let's be honest here," O'Malley said. "The presidency of the United States is not some crown to be passed between two families." The Democrat's comments, in an appearance on ABC's "This Week," are another signal that he's likely to challenge Clinton in the 2016 Democratic presidential primary. He's focusing in recent weeks on issues like income inequality and wage stagnation -- which liberal darling Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has made her...

Questions also linger about Ms. Abedin's alleged connection to the Muslim Brotherhood's women's auxiliary while having access to classified information and documents.

    Behind the saga of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s personal email account and the messages said to no longer exist is the implication that she has something to hide. None of her critics – at least those among congressional Republicans pushing her to reveal more – have come right out and said she purposely destroyed politically-damaging evidence that could hamper any plans to run for president next year. **SNIP** “The Benghazi panel has already said it will bring Clinton in to testify at least twice – once privately about her email use while at State and at another public hearing on the...

(SNIP) “He told targeted Democrats in tough re-election fights that he wanted them to vote for this anti-immigrant bill,” Gutierrez said then. “That’s a fact, an irrefutable fact. So it’s nice that Rahm Emanuel the candidate is for the DREAM Act kids now, but actions speak louder than words.”

    ...Hillary’s private email server acted as portal to a private intelligence network that included retired members of special operations, former CIA clandestine personnel and foreign informers. Acting in some indeterminate capacity over it was Sidney Blumenthal, former aide to president Bill Clinton and now apparently a retainer to the family dynasty. It was the compromise of Blumenthal’s emails by the Romanian hacker Guccifer that in part led to journalists to discover Hillary’s private email account. Publicly available sources describe Guccifer as a taxi driver who penetrated the email accounts of the Bush family, Colin Powell and of course Sidney Blumenthal...

    A new CBS poll on Hillary Clinton this week suggests that the former first lady, New York senator and secretary of state faces a steeper road to the White House than her supporters might think. Only 26 percent in the poll of the adult population had a favorable view of Clinton, while 37 percent had an unfavorable opinion, and an astonishing 36 percent said they hadn't heard enough to form an opinion or were undecided. Because the poll sampled all adults, not just registered voters, the poll's political significance is limited. Much of the general public pays little attention to...

The timing of Kerry’s request has many asking if this push for reform is connected to former Secretary Hillary Clinton’s recent scandal involving her use of a private email server, rather than a State Department account. State Department Spokesman Jeff Rathke denied this had anything to do with Clinton, citing instead the State Department’s need to better manage the overwhelming number of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and requests for information from...

    As President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry close in on a nuclear deal with Iran, it's worth remembering that the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation received money from "a front for the government of Iran" called the Alavi Foundation. The front gave the Clintons $30,000 between April 2005 and March 2006, according to tax forms. This occurred years after law enforcement officials tied the group to Iranian radicals. “The center is funded by the New York-based Alavi Foundation, which law enforcement officials say is closely tied to the mullahs who dominate Iran,” the Washington Post reported...

    Hillary Clinton cracks a joke about her illicit email account in wake of scandal as she promises 'no more secrecy' **SNIP** She said: 'I am well aware that some of you may be a little surprised to see me here tonight.

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took time to hang out with the press Monday night, joking with a room packed with national political reporters about their sometimes-testy relationship. "I'm well aware that some of you may be a little surprised to see me here tonight. My relationship with the press has been at times, shall we say, complicated,'" Clinton said to laughs at a dinner for the Robin Toner Program in Political Reporting in downtown Washington, D.C. "But I am all about new beginnings: A new grandchild, another new hairstyle, a new email account, a new relationship with the...
  • Hillary Can’t Type: Look To Huma’s And Cheryl’s Emails

    Don’t expect a gold mine of emails on Hillary’s private account. Why not? Because she doesn’t know how to type. That’s right. She writes everything out in longhand. Really. Anyone who has spent time in meetings with her knows about her endless yellow pads. So her emails will most likely turn out to be very short and quick. She wouldn’t spend a lot of time pecking out long letters. No way. That’s why the Benghazi Committee needs to also look very closely at the emails on private accounts that Hillary’s closest aides, Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills, maintained. Anything more...

    Undaunted by an email scandal and congressional investigation, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton exuded wholehearted confidence Monday that she’ll win the White House as she publicly mused about hires for her administration. Speaking at a policy roundtable at a liberal Washington think tank, Mrs. Clinton hinted at a future job offer for Compton, California, Mayor Aja Brown. “Don’t be surprised if you get a call,” Mrs. Clinton said after praising the Democratic mayor’s anti-gang programs.“Maybe we’ll start not too far from here in a beautiful domed building, where we’ll get everybody in the same room and start that...

    It is amazing how a simple question can cause a complex lie to collapse like a house of cards. The simple question was asked by Bill O'Reilly of the Fox News Channel, and it was addressed to two Democrats. He asked what has Hillary Clinton ever accomplished. The two Democrats immediately sidestepped the question and started reciting their talking points in favor of Hillary. But O'Reilly kept coming back to the fact that nothing they were talking about was an accomplishment. For someone who has spent her entire adult life in politics, including being a Senator and then a Secretary...
  • (Nixon) President Refuses to Turn Over Tapes; Ervin Committee, Cox Issue Subpoenas

    President Nixon set the stage yesterday for a major constitutional confrontation by refusing to turn over presidential tape recordings to either Senate Watergate committee or to Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox. Cox immediately served a subpoena for the tapes on presidential counsel J. Fred Buzhart, who must respond in federal court by Thursday. The Senate Committee followed suit, serving two subpoenas on another presidential lawyer, Leonard Garment. The committee chairman, Sen. Sam Ervin (D-N.C.), reacted to the President's decision with an emotional statement, saying: "I deeply regret that this situation has arisen, because I think that the Watergate tragedy is the...

    EXCERPT The roughly 300 emails from Mrs. Clinton’s private account that were turned over last month to a House committee investigating the attack showed the secretary and her aides closely monitoring the fallout from the tragedy, which threatened to damage her image and reflect poorly on the State Department. They provided no evidence that Mrs. Clinton, as the most incendiary Republican attacks have suggested, issued a “stand down” order to halt American forces responding to the violence in Benghazi, or took part in a broad cover-up of the administration’s response, according to senior American officials. But they did show that...

    In newly released emails from when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, Mrs. Clinton sent business-related emails to her staffers. Not only do these new emails prove that Ms. Clinton used her private email address to conduct business, which she vehemently denied two weeks ago, but it also proves that she lied about whether her employees used private email. The emails, obtained by the House committee investigating the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, show Mrs. Clinton emailing aides about whether she would survive the firestorm surrounding the attack and her perceived responsibility. "Did we survive the day?” she wrote to a...

    Hillary Clinton on Monday called for action to address inequality in America’s cities as she made what is expected to be one of her last public appearances before launching a presidential bid."A lot of our cities truly are divided, they have a lot of inequality which has only gotten worse," she said Monday during a roundtable at the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank."They have some of the most dynamic, well-educated, affluent people in the world, and people who are trapped in generational poverty, and whose skills are not keeping up with what the jobs of today and...

    The New York Times totally threw shade at Bill and Hillary Clinton's son-in-law, Marc Mezvinsky. Matt Goldstein and Steve Eder wrote an article in The New York Times suggesting that Mezvinsky —who is married to Chelsea Clinton —had been able to gain access to investors with ties to the Clintons for the hedge fund he cofounded that has had "underwhelming returns."About a month ago, The Wall Street Journal published a report about the fund's underperformance since its inception. The Times' report focuses primarily on Mezvinsky and his role in fund-raising and strategizing for the fund. Back in 2011, Mezvinsky, now...

    Warning: readers are advised to hide the sharp objects before viewing the clip of Morning Joe's review of the Middle East today. The picture painted is one of the utter failure of US foreign policy, leaving a devastated, deadly region in its woeful wake. We open with President Obama's "mission accomplished" moment from last year in which he called US policy in Yemen "successful." Cut to Jim Miklaszewski saying that the White House had to order US special forces out of the country, leaving us with absolutely no leverage. Then to Iraq, where two experts say Iraq as a country...
