    Hillary Clinton hopes you are busy. Hillary Clinton hopes you are confused. Hillary Clinton hopes the endless stories about her private email server—and her endless, fabulist explanations—will make your head hurt, make your eyes cross, make you give up trying to figure it out. All you really need to know at this point is this: Pretty much every claim Mrs. Clinton made at her initial March news conference, and since then, is false. In the spirit of keeping it simple, here’s the Complete Busy Person’s Guide to the Clinton Email Scandal. Stick it on the fridge.

    Among the thousands more Hillary Clinton's emails that have been released are ones exchanged with her top aide that may just add to the dilemma facing the 2016 Democratic Presidential candidate. Among the latest batch are emails from her adviser Sidney Blumenthal. On December 6, 2010 he sent her an email including a link to a news story with the headline: 'U.S. Orders Diplomats to Stop Telling Truth' Clinton replies: 'Sounds like a good idea!' The emails also reveal that Blumenthal felt the former Secretary of State was 'vindicated' over the Libyan uprising even though the Benghazi scandal was still...

    Obama White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett threw Hillary Clinton under the bus Wednesday at the Washington Ideas Forum, where she told interviewer Andrea Mitchell that the White House gave Clinton guidance forbidding her from using private email. “Yes, there were. Yeah, absolutely,” Jarrett said when asked if the White House sent guidance to Cabinet secretaries about not using private email. “Obviously we want to make sure that we preserve all government records, and so there was guidance given that government business should be done on government emails and that if you did use a private email that it should...

    Remember 2012, when the most vulnerable issue for Democrats was the overwhelmingly unpopular imposition of ObamaCare? The Establishment stuck Republicans with Mitt Romney, who couldn’t use the issue because he was responsible for imposing ObamaCare’s prototype on Massachusetts. Since it looks like Obama will keep Shrillary out of jail, she remains the Democrat frontrunner for 2016. Her most vulnerable point is her illegal use of a private email server for top secret communications, presumably to cover her influence peddling activities. When the server was subpoenaed by Congress, she tried to wipe it — an arrogant crime that would land you...

    Since there has been much evasion and obfuscation about Hillary Rodham Clinton’s e-mail use, it seems appropriate to step back and simply review what we know in light of the law. It’s also instructive to compare Clinton’s situation to arguably the most famous case of our time related to the improper handling of classified materials, namely, the case of Gen. David Petraeus. Instead of turning his journals — so-called “black books” — over to the Defense Department or CIA when he left either of those organizations, Petraeus kept them at his home — an unsecure location — and provided them...

A film called Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation was in the theaters, there was a war going on in Syria, and Donald Trump was making rude comments about reporters and Republicans.

The correspondence with General David Petraeus, who was commander of US Central Command at the time, started shortly before she entered office and continued during her first days as the top US diplomat in January and February of 2009. The Defense Department provided the emails to the State Department in "the last several days," State Department spokesman John Kirby...

Here are past statements where the presidential hopeful neglected to take personal responsibility for the controversy. (The Washington Post) After several weeks of relative dormancy, the story of Hillary Clinton's private e-mail server surged back into the news Tuesday night, with a trio of stories that suggest things are going to get worse before they get better (if they get better) for the former secretary of state's 2016 campaign.

    The FBI has recovered work-related emails from Hillary Clinton’s time as Secretary of State as it investigates the contents of the private server the Democratic presidential candidate used for her communications. “If the FBI – Federal Bureau of Investigation has now recovered work-related emails, official emails that were deleted, this would be a game-changer.” Ed Henry reported on Fox News’ The Kelly File. He explained that Clinton has long claimed that she only deleted 30,000 personal emails from the server; so if the FBI recovers work-related emails, that would suggest that Clinton was not telling the truth.

    The next question in the Hillary Clinton email matter is who will force the FBI to release any documents it may have retrieved from the 2016 presidential candidate's homemade server — Congress or the courts? The answer: A federal judge may decide to get aggressive and order the law enforcement agency to turn over any newly discovered records or at least preserve them pending further court action. But don't expect congressional subpoenas to fly — or FBI director James Comey to get hauled to Capitol Hill anytime soon. Key congressional committees investigating Clinton’s emails argue that the courts are better...

    The FBI refused to cooperate Monday with a court-ordered inquiry into former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s email server, telling the State Department that they won’t even confirm they are investigating the matter themselves, much less willing to tell the rest of the government what’s going on. Judge Emmet G. Sullivan had ordered the State Department to talk with the FBI and see what sort of information could be recovered from Mrs. Clinton’s email server, which her lawyer has said she turned over to the Justice Department over the summer. The FBI’s refusal, however, leaves things muddled. “At this...

    Counterintelligence specialists suspect that the former secretary of state wasn’t the only member of the Obama administration emailing secrets around. Hillary Clinton’s email problems are already causing headaches for her presidential campaign. But within American counterintelligence circles, there’s a mounting sense that the former secretary of state may not be the only Obama administration official in trouble. This is a scandal that has the potential to spread to the White House, as well. The Federal Bureau of Investigation can be expected to be tight-lipped, especially because this highly sensitive case is being handled by counterintelligence experts from Bureau headquarters a...

    There are gaps totaling five months in the Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department, the watchdog group Judicial Watch announced Monday morning. The revelation emerged after a court ordered the release of State Department documents as part of Judicial Watch’s effort to obtain Clinton emails under the Freedom of Information Act. Emails sent and received by Clinton on her private server are missing over periods totaling five months, beginning when she took office as secretary of state in February 2009. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said the gaps indicate Clinton lied under oath when she said all her...

    WASHINGTON — Stung by years of criticism that it has coddled Wall Street criminals, the Justice Department issued new policies on Wednesday that prioritize the prosecution of individual employees — not just their companies — and put pressure on corporations to turn over evidence against their executives. The new rules, issued in a memo to federal prosecutors nationwide, represent the first major policy announcement by Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch since she took office in April. The memo is a tacit acknowledgment of criticism that, despite securing record fines from major corporations, the Justice Department under President Barack Obama has...

    A federal judge Thursday rejected the Obama administration’s efforts to halt all of the open-records lawsuits seeking access to former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s emails. Judge Richard J. Leon, without comment, rejected the Justice Department’s request for a stay in a short order posted online. He’s the first judge to rule on the request, which the department filed last week as it tries to get a single judge to oversee the more than 30 open-records cases seeking Clinton emails. Judge Leon’s rejection probably puts the nail in that idea, since it would take universal buy-in from the more...

    Disclosures that the aide who set up Hillary Clinton’s private email server has refused to cooperate with investigators on Fifth Amendment grounds mark an ominous new turn for the Democratic presidential frontrunner as she fights allegations she mishandled classified information while secretary of state. One former Republican U.S. attorney predicted Thursday that the development will compel the Justice Department to set aside the FBI’s limited inquiry into whether Clinton’s emails breached national security, empanel a federal grand jury and conduct a criminal investigation. “Obviously, if he’s not going to cooperate, all of these people who were on her email are...

    The IT specialist who set up Hillary Clinton's controversial private email was paid with taxpayer dollars after he helped the former Secretary of State skirt the law. And Bryan Pagliano is finding his own words could be coming back to bite him. 'Some things that look like good ideas…may actually have bad consequences,' he told an IT webinar last year. Pagliano, 39, was taken on by the State Department when Clinton was appointed the nation's top diplomat in 2009. He had previously worked for her presidential campaign. Now the married father of two, says he will plead the Fifth Amendment...

    National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden said on Thursday that 2016 Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton is likely aware her personal email server exposed sensitive national intelligence. Snowden added that lesser employees would have lost their jobs for copying Clinton’s actions during her tenure as secretary of State. “This is a problem because anyone who has the clearances that the secretary of State has, or the director of any top level agency has, knows how classified information should be handled,” he said, according to excerpts of an Al Jazeera interview airing Friday. “If an ordinary worker at the State Department or...

    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,...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s emails reveal how prominently the Clinton Foundation factored into her thinking as America’s top diplomat, raising questions about where she drew the line between official business and aiding the family charity run by her husband and daughter. In one instance, Mrs. Clinton appeared to try to steer a Haiti earthquake recovery project to the foundation, according to new emails released this week as the State Department belatedly complies with open records requests for her communications during her four years in office. Another email shows Mrs. Clinton directing a State Department employee to handle...

    As it turns out the classified information contained in Hilz emails is not even the good part; it’s the non-classified emails that are more entertaining:From “Instructions for the Help” email: the obligatory “Happy New Year, little people,” followed by assignments -  menu planning, skim milk, Human Rights Watch report, air time for Parks and Recreation and The Good Wife. That pretty much wraps up the Secretary of State’s priorities for 2010. Oh, and gefilte fish:When released, this one led to some fun on Twitchy:Butt let’s return for a moment to the gravlax gravitas of the classified emails processed on the...

    Solomon reports part of concern about the information being unsecured on Clinton’s home server is that it could have been hacked by the North Koreans–who would then know more about U.S. spying capabilities. Solomon reports the information was likely summarized from a secure site and sent in unclassified systems up the chain to Clinton. “One of the most serious potential breaches of national security identified so far by the intelligence community inside Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private emails involves the relaying of classified information concerning the movement of North Korean nuclear assets, which was obtained from spy satellites. “Multiple intelligence sources...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “had no right” to use a private email server when conducting government business, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told “This was a State Department system,” Fitton said. “I think the State Department knew about it. She's the head of the agency, she knew about it, so the agency knew about it. And they didn’t feel like managing the records according to regulation and law. And they were happy to obstruct the courts, lie to judges, lie to Congress. snip On Monday, the State Department released more than 7,000 emails, some containing classified information,...

    A longtime confidante of Hillary Clinton dismissed House Speaker John Boehner as "louche, alcoholic, and lazy" in an email to Clinton's personal account that was released by the State Department late Monday. The email sent by Sidney Blumenthal on Election Day 2010 was one of many missives sent from Blumenthal to Clinton during her tenure as secretary of state that touched on domestic politics and foreign policy. Blumenthal's email, with the subject line "election day memo on post-midterms," was sent on the afternoon of Nov. 2, 2010, the day the GOP took control of the House of Representatives in the...

    As feds dig deep into the computer hardware that once hosted the former secretary of state's emails, more than just the messages could turn up. Modern forensic tools could help determine if anyone tried to hack into the server while it was housed in Hillary Clinton's unsecured house. Even data thought to be erased could turn up and point investigators toward other email accounts that no one yet knows about. Because the server was put in place seven years ago, its old-technology hard drives aren't as good as newer machines at erasing things Now that federal investigators have Hillary Rodham...
