    WTOP News (Washington DC) ^ | July 23, 2016 8:48 am | CATHERINE LUCEY
    FILE - In this June 21, 2016, file photo, Rep. Chaka Fattah, D-Pa., center, leaves the federal courthouse in Philadelphia. With the Democratic National Convention looming, Philadelphia is ready with freshly swept streets, pristine hotel rooms, lavish party invitations and extra police patrols. Tougher to clean up are the recent political corruption cases that have implicated many Democrats across the state. In June, Fattah was convicted of laundering federal grants and nonprofit funds to repay an illegal $1 million campaign loan and help family and friends. PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The streets are freshly swept, the hotel rooms are pristine, the...

    Twitter lit up Friday night with allegations that it tried to suppress news that secret-leaking website Wikileaks exposed thousands of emails obtained from the servers of the Democratic National Committee. Friday afternoon, users noted, "#DNCLeaks" was trending, with more than 250,000 tweets about it on the platform. By Friday evening, it vanished completely from the site's "trending" bar for at least 20 minutes. It returned as "#DNCLeak" after users erupted, though it was too late to quell their rage. "Don't normally tweet political things, but why would @twitter pull the #DNCleaks from trending at #1. Sounds like censorship to me,"...

    A former Department of State official is headed to prison for conspiring to steer $2 million in sole-source micro-dairy contracts to his son’s business, according to the Department of Justice (DOJ). Kenneth Apple faces up to 20 years behind bars after a federal jury in Virginia convicted him Thursday of ensuring the State Department awarded four contracts for creating milk-processing factories in Iraq to Xtreme Global Logistics Solutions (XGLS). Apple’s son, Jonathan Apple, owned 50 percent of the Montana-based company, the DOJ said. Apple — a State Department agricultural advisor from Oregon in charge of micro-dairy contract oversight in Iraq...

    On July 25, the Democratic National Convention will begin in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. To commensurate the event and its embrace of corrupt politician Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee, Wikileaks is releasing thousands of DNC/Clinton emails. In its recent leak of 20,000 DNC emails from January 2015 to May 2016, DNC staff discuss how to deal with Bernie Sanders’ popularity as a challenge to Clinton’s candidacy. Instead of treating Sanders as a viable candidate for the Democratic ticket, the DNC worked against him and his campaign to ensure Clinton received the nomination. One email from DNC deputy communications director Eric Walker...

    FBI Director James Comey today recommended that Melania Trump be indicted for a felony violation of an obscure Federal law involving "plagiarism". Comey would not name the Federal law, because 1) it's an active investigation and 2) Attorney General Loretta Lynch has not yet met privately with former president "Bent" Bill Clinton and presidential hopeful "Crooked" Hillary Clinton on a plane somewhere in order to craft the wording of the Federal law. Comey also recommended that both Melania and Ivanka Trump be prosecuted for the new Federal crime of "Being Hotter Than Michelle "The Wookie" & "Crooked" Hillary", a felony...

"Do you think it became a controversy because it fed the trust issue?" PBS host Charlie Rose asked the former secretary of state during an interview on Monday. "I'm sure it didn’t help. Yes, I’m sure it didn’t help," Clinton told Rose, admitting for the first time that the email scandal has hurt her politically. "It was wrong because look at what it has...

The Police Protection Act would make any crime committed against a police officer "out of bias against police" be labeled a "hate crime." Under the act, assaulting a law enforcement officer would become a 2nd degree felony. It's currently a 3rd degree felony.

Perpetrators are listed in four racial categories: black, white, Asian and Native American. Hispanics are thrown into the “white” category.

The ARRL was founded in 1914 and is supposed to be representing the interests of the American ham radio community. Unfortunately, as is the case with many organizations, it has lost its way and has become a secretive club with its own agenda. It needs to be reformed.

Instead, she says Bill Clinton talked "at length" about his grandchildren. And, in keeping with Clinton's reputation for volubility, Lynch says that the conversation...

The lack of a sworn oath does not remove the possibility of criminal penalties against Clinton if she lied to the FBI, though he said he had “no basis to conclude” that she was untruthful. “Still a crime to lie to us,” Comey told the House Oversight Committee. FBI policy is not to record interviews as part of its investigations. Yet...

If you leave a child in a hot car and that child is harmed, you will be charged with negligence even if the action was unintentional. By minimizing the negligence issue in the Clinton case, Director Comey puts his agency under scrutiny. I am not casting aspersions on Comey's honesty, I believe he is a credible man and I don't believe he would tank an investigation. But the people are owed a more detailed explanation about negligence that put our national security in jeopardy. Finally,...

Tube prices, taxi fares, food prices, restaurant bills, train fares… it all keeps going up. And to cap it all off, the British government’s VAT increases have ensured that absolutely everyone is paying a little bit more.

    Hillary Clinton's weekend interview with the FBI stands as a perfect symbol of what is probably her biggest liability heading into the fall election: A lot of people say they don't trust her. [Snip] "Trust is the glue that holds our democracy together," Clinton said last week as part of a direct effort to address the issue in this small lull between the end of primary voting and the start of full-on campaigning for the fall vote. "I take this seriously, as someone who is asking for your votes, and I personally know I have work to do on this...

    A key Hillary Clinton supporter on Sunday rejected the idea of appointing a special prosecutor to investigate the former secretary of state's private emails, and said the investigation has not been compromised despite Attorney General Loretta Lynch's private meeting with the candidate's husband, Bill Clinton, last week. Rep. Xavier Becerra, D-Calif., said repeatedly on "Fox News Sunday" that Bill Clinton's meeting with Lynch was just a "chance encounter" and therefore didn't require Lynch to recuse herself. The attorney general has said she would follow the advice of career prosecutors at the Justice Department, he noted. "Why stop that process?" Becerra...

    Hillary Clinton is considering retaining Loretta Lynch as Attorney General if she wins the presidency, according to a report from The New York Times. Picking Lynch as a holdover from the Obama administration would help Clinton’s stated goal of making her cabinet gender-equal. But the choice would likely prove controversial given that Lynch is the ultimate arbiter in the Justice Department’s investigation into the potential mishandling of classified information on Clinton’s private email server.

    They've been bitter rivals, allies and colleagues. When they take the stage at their first joint campaign appearance on Tuesday, President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton will show off a new phase in their storied relationship: co-dependents. Clinton's chances of winning the White House hinge on rallying Obama's coalition to her cause. Obama's legacy depends on her success. Eight years after they spent millions tearing each other down in pursuit of the White House, they will now spend countless words and four months selling each other to the public. The foe-to-friend story will be at the center of the Obama-Clinton...

    The New York City scandal of bribes being paid to obtain highly desired and irrationally restricted gun permits is something that few find unusual, exceptional or unlikely.  The entire practice of the unconstitutional gun permit scheme was conceived in corruption and has always been administered as a way of benefiting elites and corrupt officials.  People without connections or money lose their Constitutional rights.  From ap.org: The New York investigation caught Alex “Shaya” Lichtenstein, a volunteer safety patrol member in his Orthodox Jewish neighborhood, on tape bragging that he had obtained at least 150 licenses for people to carry guns...

    A North Georgia newspaper publisher was indicted on a felony charge and jailed overnight last week – for filing an open-records request. Fannin Focus publisher Mark Thomason, along with his attorney Russell Stookey, were arrested on Friday and charged with attempted identity fraud and identity fraud. Thomason was also accused of making a false statement in his records request. Thomason’s relentless pursuit of public records relating to the local Superior Court has incensed the court’s chief judge, Brenda Weaver, who also chairs the state Judicial Qualifications Commission. Weaver took the matter to the district attorney, who obtained the indictments. Thomason...
