    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Former Secretary Hillary Clinton failed to turn over a copy of a key message involving problems caused by her use of a private homebrew email server, the State Department confirmed Thursday. The disclosure makes it unclear what other work-related emails may have been deleted by the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.

    Greg Nash Resignation letter at link. Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-Pa.) is resigning effective immediately, he announced Thursday, after initially seeking to remain in Congress despite his conviction on corruption charges. "In my previous letter I indicated a later resignation date in order to provide for an orderly transition of my office after 21 years in the House," he wrote in a letter to Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.). "However, out of respect for the entire House Leadership, and so as not to cause a distraction from the House's work for the people, I have changed my effective date." Fattah first...

    Greg Nash Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-Pa.) submitted a letter of resignation from Congress on Wednesday that laid out his plan to remain as a member through October 3. The letter, sent a day after a jury convicted him of 23 corruption charges, was quickly ripped by Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), who called on Democratic leaders to join him in demanding Fattah's immediate resignation. "Mr. Fattah has betrayed the trust of this institution and the people of Pennsylvania, and for that he should resign immediately from the House of Representatives," Ryan said in a statement he tweeted out Wednesday. "We...

    Practically everyone in Washington is talking about a sensational fly-on-the-wall documentary titled Weiner. I guarantee this documentary will not bore you to death. That’s because Weiner is really not about a schmuck named Anthony Weiner, who was forced to resign from Congress after it was revealed he had tweeted sleazy photos of his bulging underwear to various women. Weiner is really about Anthony Weiner’s wife Huma Abedin, who also happens to be Hillary Clinton’s closest personal adviser. As a way of redeeming his name as well as hers, Huma convinced Anthony to run for mayor of New York City—only to...

    “Rules are made to be broken” is a saying that has many variations, but perhaps no one has summed up Hillary Clinton’s attitude (and Bill’s, too) about rules more than the late science-fiction writer, Robert A. Heinlein, who said: “I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.” In its report on how Hillary Clinton handled her “private” emails while serving as secretary of state, the State...

By the way, according to that ABC/Washington Post poll yesterday, Trump has just swung a lot of Millennials over to his side. It's a 36% swing. Now, "Clinton's support among young voters 18 to 29 has dropped 19% since March, and Trump has gained 17% support from the same demographic group, a 36% swing among Millennials."......

    Indictment. That is the term heard increasingly from sources adjacent to the ongoing investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal that apparently now places her at considerable risk of facing a very serious federal espionage charge. The risk was great enough to require President Obama to come out publicly to warn off the investigation when during an interview he attempted downplay Mrs. Clinton’s “confusion” over federal classified information laws. It was the very same tactic the president used to diminish the earlier IRS scandal and he now appears hopeful he can be just as successful in minimizing the damage to Hillary...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential candidates tried to shift attention back to Republicans Friday, calling for renewed focus on issues rather than on their dispute over qualifications to become president.

Legal experts agree charges are unlikely. But Matt Lauer of NBC's "Today" said in Friday's interview that Republicans tell him they hope Clinton will be taken out of the election equation in coming months because of criminal...

    There is little argument Hillary Clinton is singularly adept at “delivering results” that keep her and her husband out of prison. There are those today who view her running for president as another exercise to “deliver results.” As long as she is running for president the chances of her being held accountable for her treasonous handling of top secret information vis-a-vis her emails and email server are remote. Yes, Hillary Clinton knows how to “deliver results,” but sadly, they are results that protect her and her serial molester husband while doing massive injustice to the nation she has pledged to...

The previously undisclosed February 2009 emails between Clinton from her then-chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, raise new questions about the scope of emails from Clinton’s early days in office that were not handed over to the State Department for recordkeeping and may have been lost entirely. Clinton’s presidential campaign has previously claimed that the former top diplomat did not use her personal "clintonemail.com" account before March 2009, weeks after she was sworn in as...

The server was also used for Clinton Foundation work. If the FBI finds out that any of the classified...

Joseph DiGenova, who was appointed by President Ronald Reagan, said the FBI's foundation probe "has reached such a proportion of inquiry that it's starting to sneak out," but that it was sparked months ago by information pulled from Hillary Clinton's private server and from the tax filings of corporations that have donated to the charity.
