  • Leaked Emails Show DNC Officials Planned Anti-Trump Protests (Sent Interns To Staff Them)

    The release of Democratic National Committee emails by WikiLeaks Friday reveals that DNC officials planned anti-Donald Trump protests. In multiple emails DNC officials sign off and acknowledge the existence of two anti-Donald Trump protests in South Bend, IN. and Billings, MT. The release of nearly 20,000 emails is the first in a WikiLeaks “Hillary Leaks” series. On April 29, a DNC press staffer, Rachel Palermo, alerted Eric Walker, deputy communications director, about a Facebook page for an anti-Trump protest on May 2 in South Bend. “Whoo! Thanks to our interns for finding this out.” Walker replies, “I like it, as...

    Emails on Hillary Clinton’s private server marked “top secret” ended up in the inboxes of three total Clinton aides, the State Department revealed. The 22 emails over seven email chains included Clinton aides Jacob Sullivan, Cheryl Mills, and William Burns, according to documents released by the State Department to Vice News Friday. Twenty of the emails were restricted to Clinton and Sullivan, with some originating from other unnamed State Department officials. Two were email chains among State officials forwarded by Sullivan — one to Clinton and Mills, and another to Clinton, Mills and Burns. The existence of the top-secret email...

    The release of more than 20,000 pages of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee competed on Saturday with the big reveal of Virginia Senator Tim Kaine as the running mate of presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton. On Friday, Wikileaks dropped a bombshell cache of DNC emails. Several weeks ago, Russian hackers were reported to have breached the DNC's servers, but on Saturday Wikileaks refused to disclose where it had obtained the trove of data. Among other things, the documents purport to show the party apparatus favoring Clinton's campaign over the insurgency of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. On a number of...

    Wikileaks has released nearly 20,000 emails it says are from the accounts of Democratic National Committee officials. The release could cloud the upcoming Democratic party convention, which kicks off next week in Philadelphia. It is unclear how Wikileaks obtained the records, but the release comes weeks after a hacker (or hackers) going by the name Guccifer 2.0 began releasing records obtained through the DNC’s computer systems. The hacker claims to be Romanian, but many suspect that the records were taken by a team of Russian hackers. Guccifer 2.0 has said that they obtained DNC emails. Other documents released by the...

    Judge Andrew Napolitano has put together a compelling case that a massive cover-up took place in the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton’s emails. He writes it cleverly, with each sentence beginning, “What if…?” so as to be able to present hypotheses. It really deserves to be read in its entirety at The Washington Times. But here is a sample: What if, when Mrs. Clinton suggested to the president that the United States wage a secret, undeclared war against Libya, the president went along with it as a no-lose proposition? What if he assumed that if her secret war succeeded he’d...

    One of the top candidates being considered for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Running mate in 2016 has had some email problems of his own. Tom Vilsack, the former governor of Iowa and President Barack Obama’s current secretary of agriculture, was caught up in a 2004 scandal that resulted in emails being “inadvertently” destroyed. Vilsack partially blamed himself for destroying emails regarding the Iowa Department of Economic Development Foundation. The Des Moines Register had requested the emails. Vilsack’s response to the controversy, rather ironically, mirrored Clinton’s response to her own email scandal: he basically said he was old and...

The New York Times then determined that that number was just two. And now the State Department has confirmed that the two emails in question weren’t actually classified at the time, and had merely been marked incorrectly during the course...

In a filing at the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Clinton’s legal team called the request from conservative organization Judicial Watch “futile and inappropriate.” The group is relying on “nothing more than speculation” by claiming that Clinton’s use of a private server was a deliberate effort to thwart the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), the former secretary of State’s...

Most also say the email controversy won't affect their vote choice in the presidential election. But more say it leaves them less rather than more likely to support Clinton, 28 percent vs. 10 percent.

The disclosure could buttress FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before a congressional committee that Clinton was perhaps not “sophisticated enough” to understand that the marking “C” on an email meant it was a classified document. “It’s an interesting question whether she was sophisticated enough to understand what a C in parens means,” Comey said before the House Committee on...

    Illustrating that FBI Director James Comey is a liar and a fraud, his agency helped convict a Navy reservist last summer of the same crime that he just cleared Hillary Clinton of committing. In that case the reservist from northern California got criminally charged—as per FBI recommendation—for having classified material on personal electronic devices that weren’t authorized by the government to contain such information. The FBI investigation didn’t reveal evidence that the reservist intended to distribute classified information to unauthorized personnel, so he was just being “extremely careless” like Clinton and her top aides.

But she won’t have to pay the price legally, FBI Director James Comey announced Tuesday. Clinton might be singing “Happy Days Are Here Again.” She almost got indicted once before — when she was first lady — for more than a dozen cases of fraud and perjury and whatnot.

    THE BIG IDEA: Want to know why two-thirds of Americans do not consider Hillary Clinton trustworthy? Rewatch pretty much any public comment she’s made about her email use over the past 16 months and then watch James Comey’s speech yesterday. The FBI director shredded so many of the talking points that the former secretary of state and her top aides have used over and over again throughout this scandal, including that she never emailed classified material; that information in the emails was classified retroactively; that none of the emails were marked as containing classified information; that there were definitively no...

    On Monday America celebrated the 240th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, which condemned King George III for "(obstructing) the Administration of Justice." On Tuesday the American left celebrated as the federal government obstructed the administration of justice on behalf of one of its ruling families, the Clintons. ....This is the Wilsonian legacy, finally achieved after a century of waiting: the Big Man (or Woman), unanswerable to the law, approved by the population without regard to equality under the law. We now elect our dictators. And they are unanswerable to us — except, presumably, once every four...

    The negligence thing bothers me even if there were no intent to subvert federal law. 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,...

    The FBI has said it will not file any charges against Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server while secretary of state. At a press conference Tuesday morning, FBI director James Comey gave a lengthy description of the investigation his staff had carried out, focused on whether Clinton has mishandled classified information, and concluded that "no reasonable prosecutor" would bring a case based on the evidence. That wording is particularly relevant given the partisan nature of the issue. Clinton is the presumptive Democratic nominee for president and Republicans have long hoped that her use of a private...

    There is a classic Latin epigram about double standards that resounds in the aftermath of the FBI's surrender this week to the corruptocracy: "Quod licet Iovi, non licet bovi." Translation: "What is permissible for Jove is not permissible for an ox." Jove is the Roman god Jupiter, untouchable ruler of the skies, wielder of the lightning bolt. The ox is a servile beast, sacrificial animal for elites in power, bearer of the heavy yoke. FBI Director James Comey told us Monday what many of us have already known and long suspected: Hillary Clinton serially lied about her homeland security-jeopardizing homebrew...

    In our family, a few of us have had security clearances, some still do. We’ve all sat through the briefings, undergone the interviews, signed the papers. We’ve all understood the obligation. And so it is that my former father-in-law still can’t talk about most of his Air Force career, I’ve never described some pictures the Army had me take one day, and I’m not really sure what my daughter does for the Army or my daughter-in-law does for the State Department. We’ve all understood the obligation. And the privilege. We were trusted by our government and our country and we...

    In a scandalous announcement, FBI director James Comey moments ago said that "although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information" and he gave extensive evidence of just that, "our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case." He added that "prosecutors necessarily weigh a number of factors before bringing charges. There are obvious considerations, like the strength of the evidence, especially regarding intent. Responsible decisions also consider the context of a person’s actions, and how similar situations have been handled in the past."What is shocking is that the...

    ... Comey even conceded that former Secretary Clinton was “extremely careless” and strongly suggested that her recklessness very likely led to communications (her own and those she corresponded with) being intercepted by foreign intelligence services. Yet, Director Comey recommended against prosecution of the law violations he clearly found on the ground that there was no intent to harm the United States. In essence, in order to give Mrs. Clinton a pass, the FBI rewrote the statute, inserting an intent element that Congress did not require. The added intent element, moreover, makes no sense: The point of having a statute that...

    This morning’s damning analysis of Hillary Clinton’s actions related to her personal email server and her now disproven claims are the subject of a brutal new video released by the Donald Trump campaign. “I did not send or receive any information that was marked classified at the time,” Clinton says in an ABC News interview featured in the ad. “From the 30,000 emails returned to the State Department in 2014, 110 emails in 52 email chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received,” Comey said this morning —...
