    Full Title: Please, FBI — you’re our last hope: The Democratic Party’s future rests upon your probe of Hillary Clinton’s emails To the Honorable James B. Comey, Jr. and all the good people at the Federal Bureau of Investigation, The majority of the Democratic Party does not believe there is an ongoing FBI criminal investigation regarding Hillary Clinton’s emails. They believe, as the former Secretary of State has told them, that your work is merely a “security review,” or as one Democratic strategist call it, “another BS scandal.” Your work, thus far, has been relegated to yet another “witch hunt.”...

    "He (Napolitano) would not be surprised if FBI agents who truly believe that there is enough evidence to indict Mrs. Clinton and to convict her on both the email charge and the public corruption charge, will feel frustrated and stymied by the political people in the Justice Department and will want the public to know what they know," he said. "If that class of people -- it would be more than one person -- leaks information to the press, I agree with Senator Grassley, if there is a leak, and if what is leaked is credible... the president could have...

    Email Info Could Have Exposed Clinton Server in 2014 The Obama State Department last week admitted it withheld a key Benghazi email of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from Judicial Watch since at least September 2014. If the State Department disclosed the email when first supposedly found, Clinton’s email server and her hidden emails would have been disclosed nearly two years ago, before Clinton authorized the alleged deletion of tens of thousands emails. The developments come in a July 2014 Freedom of Information (FOIA) lawsuit seeking records related to the drafting and use of the Benghazi talking points (Judicial...

    Senator Chuck Grassley says the worst development during his 40-year career in congress has been “more partisanship,” but Grassley says that’s also one of the best things — because it is better defining “who’s a Republican and who’s a Democrat.” “I think it’s clearer to the American people what the Republican Party stands for and the Democratic Party stands for,” Grassley says. The presence of “moderate” Republicans and Democrats in congress “blurred” things for voters, according to Grassley. “And that makes it more fuzzy for the people at the grassroots,” Grassley says. But Grassley says the higher level of partisanship...

    A study released by Security Scorecard found that all levels of government had a worse record of cyber security than major business firms. In measures of vulnerability to malware and security breaches, federal, state, and local governments ranked at the bottom. Education, telecommunications and pharmaceutical industries were almost as bad. Information services, construction, food and technology were the best. Of the 600 government entities tracked, NASA performed the worst. Other low-performing government organizations included the U.S. Department of State. This latter revelation was jumped on by the Hillary Clinton for President campaign as "a total vindication of Secretary Clinton's decision...

In the interview, Wallace confronted Obama if he can still say flatly that Clinton did not jeopardize America's secrets. Obama also guaranteed politics will not influence the outcome of the investigation.

    President Obama insisted Sunday that there will be no White House or political influence on the FBI or the Justice Department as they look into the security of the private email system Hillary Clinton used for government work when she was secretary of state. "I can guarantee that," Obama said in an interview with "Fox News Sunday." It was his first interview with the network in two years. Obama also defended his former secretary of state, even as he said that he had to be "careful" because of the ongoing investigation. He strongly suggested that the mishandled classified documents that...

    After several years of incarceration in his native Romania, Marcel Lazar Lehel, aka Guccifer, has finally arrived this week in Alexandria, Virginia, to face nine charges of computer hacking. Guccifer, it will be recalled, is the one who revealed the presence of Hillary Clinton's private server through his hacking of Sidney Blumenthal's email account. Catherine Herridge and Pamela K. Browne of Fox point out the interesting timing of his extradition: Romanian media have reported the [FBI] request came on or about Dec. 29, 2015. That would have been shortly after the intelligence community's identification of emails beyond "top secret" on...

    The extradition of Romanian hacker “Guccifer” to the U.S. at a critical point in the FBI’s criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email use is “not a coincidence,” according to an intelligence source close to the case. One of the notches on Guccifer’s cyber-crime belt was allegedly accessing the email account of Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal, one of Clinton’s most prolific advice-givers when she was secretary of state. It was through that hack that Clinton's use of a personal account -- clintonemail.com -- first came to light. Former law enforcement and cyber security experts said the hacker, whose real name is...

    Former law enforcement and intelligence officials contacted by TheDCNF agree if there is wrongdoing, it is likely prosecutors will focus on the classified documents. The most serious charges are felonies cited in Title 18 of the U.S. Code of the Espionage Act in sections 793, 798 and 1001. Experts contacted by TheDCNF say these could serve as the foundation for any criminal prosecution of Clinton or her aides. [Snip] Clinton aides Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin and Jacob Sullivan may be very vulnerable to charges.

    Lawyers preparing Clinton and her aides for possible interviews are well aware that Comey has a history of prosecuting those who impede investigators. Cheney’s aide Libby was convicted not of leaking Plame’s identity but of obstructing justice, as was Martha Stewart. Comey had a front-row seat to Clinton’s controversial handling of documents in the White-water case. Ultimately the Senate committee he worked for two decades ago found no criminal wrongdoing but issued a politically damaging report anyway. Clinton campaign official Brian Fallon says that the FBI has not requested an interview with her yet and that she remains ready to...

U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth issued the ruling on Tuesday in response to a 2014 lawsuit by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, which has been suing the State Department for documents related to the Benghazi attack. Judge Lamberth cited “evidence of government wrong-doing” while issuing the decision. “[W]here there is evidence of government wrong-doing and bad faith, as here, limited discovery is appropriate,...

The Washington Post reports that the large number of agents have been deployed to run down leads in the investigation, citing a lawmaker briefed by FBI Director James Comey. The Post reported that the FBI has accelerated its investigation because officials want to avoid potentially announcing any action close to the November election. Comey has signaled that he is personally close to the probe into Clinton's personal email account used during her time as secretary of State.

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...

    **SNIP** In normal civil litigation practice, when documents are sought for a trial, the parties must issue “litigation holds” to preserve all documents likely to be asked for, well before they are actually demanded and, in some cases, even before a lawsuit is filed. Failure to preserve such documents results in sanctions by the court. If parties want to withhold documents, they still preserve them, so that the court can eventually make a decision about whether they have to be produced. As a former corporate attorney, Clinton must have known those rules. Her action prevented a neutral third party from...

Email existed in a limited capacity before Tomlinson in that electronic messages could be shared amid multiple people within a limited framework. But until his invention in 1971 of the first network person-to-person email, there was no way to send something to a specific person at a specific address. Here are five things to know about Tomlinson's invention: 1. The first email was sent on the ARPANET...

    Raymond Tomlinson, the inventor of modern email and a technological leader, died Saturday. Raytheon Co., his employer, confirmed his death; the details were not immediately available. Email existed in a limited capacity before Tomlinson in that electronic messages could be shared amid multiple people within a limited framework. But until his invention in 1971 of the first network person-to-person email, there was no way to send something to a specific person at a specific address. Tomlinson wrote and sent the first email on the ARPANET system, a computer network that was created for the U.S. government that is considered a...

    **SNIP** Kirby, the State Department spokesman, said the agency "takes the protection of sensitive information seriously and our staff are aware of the appropriate channels for transmitting classified information." "We stand by the redactions we have made," he said. Still, some diplomats who have reviewed their emails that have now been classified have expressed puzzlement. Several said in interviews that they thought the State Department's review process relied on an overly broad interpretation of public-records laws that restrict release of certain information involving relations with foreign governments.

    Hillary Clinton’s work-related emails from her private account are now public, more than 52,000 pages detailing her tenure as secretary of state but failing to resolve questions about how she and her closest aides handled classified information. Several investigations continue into her exclusive use of a nongovernment email account and homebrew server while she was in government, an issue that has dogged her presidential campaign, even though she seems well-positioned to capture the Democratic nomination. [Snip] Some of the things we learned:
  • What does immunity for Clinton email staffer signal?

    **SNIP** Talking to the government, or giving a "proffer," relinquishes the few advantages a defendant has: He gives up his constitutional privilege against self-incrimination, and more, he gives the government the defense's version of the case up front. While Pagliano is surely in an unenviable, nail-biting position, we can draw some inferences from recent events. Whether he had zero potential liability, or some liability, he's probably not a "target." Why? Because if he were, his attorney would probably not let him talk to the government, and the government would probably not give him immunity. Remember, the government is parsimonious with...

    EXCLUSIVE: A senior Hillary Clinton aide has maintained her top secret security clearance despite sending information now deemed classified to the Clinton Foundation and to then-Secretary of State Clinton's private unsecured email account, according to congressional letters obtained by Fox News. Current and former intelligence officials say it is standard practice to suspend a clearance pending the outcome of an investigation. Yet in the case of Cheryl Mills, Clinton's former chief of staff at the State Department, two letters indicate this practice is not being followed - even as the Clinton email system remains the subject of an FBI investigation....

    The US State Department announced that it will be deferring further analysis of the security implications of former Secretary Clinton's unauthorized and illegal transfer of classified documents onto her private, unsecured computer until after this November's elections. Department of State spokesman John Kirby explained that "the upcoming elections are contentious and confusing enough already. Adding additional complicated material at this time will overtax voters' attention spans and divert them away from the themes candidates are trying to communicate. This could affect the outcome in ways that might be very detrimental to the greater good." Kirby also added an efficiency argument...

    The immunity deal granted to a former Hillary Clinton staffer indicates the FBI's investigation into her email practices is accelerating, former prosecutors say. Clinton was riding high on Tuesday following a series of decisive primary victories that seemed to put her on an unstoppable path to the Democratic presidential nomination. But after her campaign celebrated big victories against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the marquee issue that Republicans hope will sink her in the general election was thrust back into the spotlight. The day after her Super Tuesday victories, a law enforcement official leaked that Bryan Pagliano, who helped set up...

    EXCLUSIVE: The FBI is investigating whether computer passwords were shared among Hillary Clinton's close aides to determine how sensitive intelligence "jumped the gap" between the classified systems and Clinton's unsecured personal server, according to an intelligence source familiar with the probe. The source emphasized to Fox News that “if [Clinton] was allowing other people to use her passwords, that is a big problem.”

    The Justice Department has granted immunity to the former State Department staffer who worked on Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private email server, a sign the FBI investigation into possible criminal wrongdoing is progressing. A senior U.S. law enforcement official said the FBI had secured the cooperation of Bryan Pagliano who worked on Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign before setting up the server in her New York home in 2009. As the FBI looks to wrap up its investigation in the coming months, agents will likely want to interview Clinton and her senior aides about the decision to use a private server, how...

    Attorney General Loretta Lynch confirmed to Congress last week that career Justice Department attorneys are working with FBI agents on the ongoing criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email practices and possible public corruption at the Clinton Foundation. According to legal experts, this gives agents "access to the U.S. government’s full investigative tool box, including subpoena power for individuals, business or phone records, as well as witnesses." Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano says that if Lynch presents their evidence to a grand jury, "Mrs. Clinton will be indicted." Judge Napoitano reported on Fox News this morning that the final...
