    Blames husband Weiner for failing to notice extra $30K paymentFederal investigators formally investigated top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin for the crime of embezzlement after confirming she took a “Babymoon” vacation and maternity time at the State Department without expending her formal leave, resulting in thousands of dollars of pay she wasn’t entitled to receive, The Washington Times has learned. The probe also gathered evidence she filed timesheets charging the government for impermissible overtime and excessive hours after she converted from a fulltime federal employer to a State Department contractor. Those timecards were filed during a period of time that...
  • Hillary Clinton Opened Door to Key U.S. Shift Toward Iran Nuclear Deal

    WASHINGTON—Hillary Clinton, in her last months as secretary of state, helped open the door to a dramatic shift in U.S. policy toward Iran: an acceptance that Tehran would maintain at least some capacity to produce nuclear fuel, according to current and former U.S. officials. In July 2012, Mrs. Clinton’s closest foreign-policy aide, Jake Sullivan, met in secret with Iranian diplomats in Oman, but made no progress in ending the dispute over Iran’s nuclear program. In a string of high-level meetings here over the next six months, the secretary of state and White House concluded that they might have to let...
  • State Dept. seeks to oust 16 judges from Clinton email cases in favor of one judge

    An overwhelmed State Department officially asked late Wednesday that the 17 judges pursuing former secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton’s emails be shunted aside in favor of a single judge who will oversee the government’s searches and releases. In a filing with the federal district court in Washington, the Obama administration admitted the request was unusual because the cases involve a wide range of documents on unrelated subjects, but said the process is no longer “orderly” and there needs to be a single case where they can make their arguments. “Different judges are being asked to impose a variety of search regimes,...

    We've all heard the phrase: 'You don't have to be mad to work here, but it helps'. But when the company in question was handling the Secretary of State's personal emails, the joke doesn't sound quite so funny. These are the IT firm staff who work at the firm which managed Hillary Clinton's private server - posing as characters from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Platte River Networks employees dressed up like mentally-ill prison inmates in the film of the novel while appearing at a conference and put the pictures on their company Facebook page. The photos were taken...
  • The Joke's On Us

    Hillary Clinton, the presumed Democratic nominee for the 2016 election, appears to be growing weary of answering, or not answering fully, questions about her use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state. During a news conference on Tuesday in Las Vegas, journalist Ed Henry repeatedly asked Clinton about the server and her email. When asked if she had wiped her server clean, Clinton responded by waving her hand in a wiping motion and saying, "What, like with a cloth or something?" It wasn't just the language and the gesture; it was the smirking expression that...

    A federal judge Tuesday blocked a scheduled deposition of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, in a civil lawsuit that claims the Clinton Foundation operated as a criminal organization​.​ The conservative watchdog group​ Freedom ​Watch, which brought the lawsuit against the Clintons, had scheduled separate video-taped depositions for them next week. U.S. District Court Judge Donald Middlebrooks granted a protective order requested by the Clintons’ lawyers that blocked the depositions until the court resolves their pending motion to dismiss the case and halt discovery. The judge’s order did not include the reasoning for...

    From Bare Naked Islam: Barack Hussein Obama together with Hillary Clinton decided to aid and abet al-Qaeda terrorists and Libyan Muslim Brotherhood jihadists to overthrow U.S. ally Muammar Ghaddafi and replace all the secular leaders in the Middle East with sharia-compliant Muslim Brotherhood governments. Former CIA Operations and Intelligence Analyist, Officer, Clare Lozez, says that “America has switched sides in the war on terror under Barack Obama.” She said the global war on terror had been an effort to “stay free of Sharia,” or repressive Islamic law, until the Obama administration began siding with such jihadist groups as the Muslim...

    RUSH: Did you hear about Stephanopoulos today? Have you heard about this? George Stephanopoulos, it has been discovered -- and he has apologized for not telling us -- that he has donated $50,000 to the Clinton Crime Family Foundation over the years. Now, see, Snerdley's in there shaking his head, "So what, not surprising." That's the point, right? Not a surprise. He never left the Clinton crime family, is the point. He's not a journalist. He's not an anchorman. He's a political hack. All he did was change his location. But you see, the thing is, once again, there's a...

    Remember when George Stephanopoulos declared during an interview with Clinton Cash author Peter Schweizer that the book had found no “smoking gun” against the Clinton Foundation and the Clintons themselves? Guess what Stephanopoulos didn’t declare — his own financial contributions to an organization that Sunlight Foundation official Bill Allison said operates like “a slush fund for the Clintons.” Dylan Byers at Politico discovered a smoking gun aimed at the credibility of Stephanopoulos as a journalist: ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos has given $50,000 to the Clinton Foundation in recent years, charitable contributions that he did not publicly disclose...

    Complete Headline: How was Weiner's wife Huma Abedin allowed to 'double-dip' with private contracts while working for Hillary Clinton at the State Dept.? A new lawsuit presses for answers A government watchdog group has sued the U.S. State Department for records showing that Huma Abedin, the one-time adviser to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, had a sweetheart deal that allowed her to keep her salary while cashing in on the side with a lucrative private-sector consulting contract that could have presented glaring conflicts of interest. Judicial Watch, famous for its litigation over long-languishing Freedom Of Information Act requests, filed suit...

    A new film claims the official government report on the crash of TWA Flight 800 in 1996 is an elaborate fabrication, but the most shocking part of the story is that charges are being leveled by some of the very investigators who put the report together. Six experts who appear in the film were members of the National Transportation Safety Board investigation team that concluded the crash was an accident, but they now claim they were silenced by their superiors. The movies, "TWA Flight 800" will debut on EPIX TV next month, on the 17-year anniversary of the crash.

    J. Bruce Maffeo came out of Federal District Court at 40 Centre Street on Feb. 9 after arguing the appeal of his client, investigative reporter James Sanders, and looked around to see how many journalists had shown up. Just three: me, Allan Wolper of Editor & Publisher and Mr. Wolper’s student at Rutgers, Tina Bui. Mr. Maffeo got a disgusted look. “The press marginalized Jim as a kook,” he said. “And now they walk by him like he’s a dog run over by a semi.” Back in 1997, Mr. Sanders got two swatches of seat material from a disgruntled source...

    WASHINGTON — The State Department has hired an alarming number of law-enforcement agents with criminal or checkered backgrounds because of a flawed hiring process, a stunning memo obtained by The Post reveals. The background problems are severe enough that many of the roughly 2,000 agents in State’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security can play only limited roles in agency efforts to police bad conduct and prosecute wrongdoers. ... “Department intakes of new . . . officers since the hiring surge a decade ago have reportedly been flawed, with ‘mitigation’ of troubling histories including criminal matters,” according to a December 2012 memo...

    The State Department has been tainted by an internal memo that revealed security personnel and even diplomats may have committed inappropriate, illegal behavior during overseas trips. Some of the behaviors: One State Department security staffer in Beirut “engaged in sexual assaults” on embassy guards, and members of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s security team may have “engaged prostitutes while on official trips in foreign countries,” CBS reported the memo as stating. The prostitution allegation was especially egregious — described as occurring so frequently to rise to the level of “endemic,” CBS said. And one more alleged activity, in the...

    Huma Abedin — Hillary Clinton’s longtime aide and the wife of all-but-declared New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner — spent her final months at the State Department working as a part-time consultant with the agency who at the same time was allowed to represent outside clients, POLITICO has confirmed. Abedin, a fixture at the Clintons’ side for at least 15 years — from Iowa to Indonesia — shifted to her new role after maternity leave in the early summer of 2012, according to a source familiar with the arrangement. The new status made her a “special government employee,” which was...
