    Facing a congressional subpoena, a former State Department staffer connected to Hillary Clinton's private email server has decided to invoke his Fifth Amendment right. Attorneys for Bryan Pagliano, a former State Department staffer who received a subpoena to testify and provide documents to the House Select Committee, wrote the committee notifying Committee chairman, Trey Gowdy that Pagliano would plead the fifth. Gowdy wants Pagliano to appear before the Benghazi Committee to provide documents “related to the servers or systems” operated and owned by Clinton. Mr. Pagliano’s legal counsel told the committee on Tuesday that he would plead the 5th to...

    The latest batch of publicly-released State Department emails provide more evidence that a $10 million loan from the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) to Clinton Foundation donor Claudio Osorio was made as a result of pressure from Bill and Hillary Clinton. The loan to a company named InnoVida, owned by Osorio, was supposed to be for building houses in earthquake-ravaged Haiti, but Osorio used the money to finance a lavish lifestyle. Osorio is currently in prison for fraud. OPIC is an independent agency but submits its budget through the State Department. The Clintons’ efforts to push the OPIC loan...

    A staffer who worked on Hillary Clinton’s private email server while she was secretary of State is expected to plead the Fifth rather than testify before Congress. Lawyers for Bryan Pagliano indicated the former IT employee will assert his constitutional right under the Fifth Amendment not to answer questions from the House Select Committee on Benghazi, citing the "current political environment." Pagliano is scheduled to appear before the House Benghazi Committee on Sept. 10. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the ranking Democrat on the panel, said in a statement that the panel's investigation of Clinton’s private email server while at State...

    Hillary Clinton violated numerous State Department rules by using privately owned thumb drives to copy 30,000 of her official emails for her lawyer, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation. The former Secretary of State in December 2014 downloaded 30,000 government emails created during her tenure in the position from her private server onto three commercial thumb drives, which her lawyer, David Kendall, transported to Washington, D.C. The State Department released 7,000 new Clinton emails Monday, including at least 125 that were treated by the department as classified.

But those jobs fill a vital need for such workers: the opportunity to get paid while acquiring stronger skills. Now, in an oh-so-typical overabundance of false solicitude for the welfare of those workers, the Obama administration has acted to make the jobs that are available to them harder to get. Last Thursday, the National Labor Relations Board did what’s been long expected, broadening the definition of a “joint employer” to drag countless businesses...

This information was one of the reasons that the intel Inspectors General referred the matter to the Department of Justice. If true, this also debunks the defense of Hillary Clinton that the information was unknown to be sensitive when transmitted:

    Emails released by the State Department on Monday raise troubling questions about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her ability to lead the country and make it great again. Clinton, who will celebrate her 68th birthday next month, has been known to make embarrassing memory-related gaffes, and had trouble remembering the things she said and did as secretary of state, the emails show. In an email dated November 13, 2010, Hillary asked a State Department aide whether she gave an interview to a certain Lebanese newspaper, apparently after reading about it in her daily press briefing. In fact, the...

A State Department spokesman did not dispute the basic facts of the incident, confirming to Fox News the disagreement over the four classified emails as well as the internal complaints. But the spokesman said the concerns were unfounded. The whistleblowers told intelligence community officials...

The changes, which came to light after the first tranche of 296 Benghazi emails was released in May, was confirmed by two sources -- one congressional, the other intelligence. The four emails originally were marked classified after a review by career officials at the State Department. But...

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton faced repeated questions about her use of a private computer server for emails while secretary of state during her recent Las Vegas news conference. Her discomfort with the topic was evident — especially if you compare her facial expressions in Las Vegas to her June 13 campaign launch announcement in New York. You can see the sharp contrast if you watch both events with the sound off, focusing on Clinton’s facial expressions and body language. Clinton is described, by both supporters and critics, as “brainy,” “tough” both personally and politically. In Las Vegas, however, her...

    The newly-released batch of Hillary Clinton emails provides further proof that Freedom of Information (FOI) law has been blatantly violated. The documents include material directly responsive to a FOI request I made back in 2012 after the Benghazi terrorist attacks on the U.S. compounds. However, the material was not produced at the time, as required by law. Once again, there appears to be nobody who holds government officials and agencies accountable for their routine violation of this law. So the infractions occur frequently and with impunity. If nobody polices our government officials and agencies–if they are above the law–then how...

    Experts in government secrecy law see almost no possibility of criminal action against Hillary Clinton or her top aides in connection with now-classified information sent over unsecure email while she was secretary of state, based on the public evidence thus far. Some Republicans, including leading GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, have called Clinton's actions criminal and compared her situation to that of David Petraeus, the former CIA director who was prosecuted for giving top secret information to his paramour. Others have cited the case of another past CIA chief, John Deutch, who took highly classified material home. But in both...

    Thousands of Hillary Clinton's private emails released by the State Department Monday evening illustrate the deep ties Clinton maintained to her family's foundation while serving as secretary of state. Clinton seemingly kept close tabs on the Clinton Foundation's activities — a situation the Obama administration had hoped to avoid when bringing Clinton into the State Department in 2009. Much of her involvement with the foundation focused on its work in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake there. The Clinton Foundation was heavily involved in projects across Haiti after the disaster, many of which have subsequently been criticized. Clinton referred to the...

The emails, most of which date from December 2009 to December 2010, include approximately 150 containing information that was upgraded to “confidential” status, the lowest category for classified information. That brings the total number of Clinton emails retroactively determined to contain classified information to more than 210. That is in addition to four emails that the Intelligence Community inspector general determined contained information that was classified at the time that it traversed...

The question is, "Did you send or receive CLASSIFIED INFORMATION (MARKED OR NOT) ON YOUR UNCLASSIFIED SERVER???" As Secretary of State, Hillary of ALL PEOPLE should be well aware of what information is classified or unclassified, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT IT WAS MARKED.

And that certainly appears to be the case, as evidence by the clumsy joint effort of the John Kerry-led State Department and the Hillary...

    1. Crime and politics. Even if Clinton—or any presidential candidate—were to be convicted of a felony, he or she would not technically be barred from being elected president. Additionally, whether or not Clinton is ever formally accused of any crime, President Obama could issue her a pardon, if he so chose. 2. Time was of the essence. The more time that passes between an event and the collection of evidence, the greater the likelihood that the full record will not be complete and/or accurate. 3. Turning a blind eye?

    The Hillary Clinton for President campaign is seeking to deflect criticism of the candidate's handling of her email account while Secretary of State by casting her as "a passive and unwitting naif" rather than a deliberate liar and lawbreaker. "As anyone who has had to deal with government regulations knows, the rules are opaque and difficult to understand," said Brian Fallon, a spokesman for Mrs. Clinton's campaign. "Who hasn't had nightmares trying to cope with IRS forms? What business hasn't run afoul of incoherent EPA guidelines? It shouldn't take much imagination for voters to comprehend the problems that confronted Hillary...

    A spokesman for Platte River Networks, the company which handled Hillary Clinton’s email server after she left the State Department, says the company turned the server over last week at the FBI’s request. That description of events appears to contradict a claim made by the Clinton campaign last week that the server was handed over at Hillary’s direction. “So Tuesday of last week, the 11th, the Federal Bureau of Investigation asked us to turn over the email server that was located in the data center,” spokesman Andy Boian told Fox News’s Griff Jenkins. Boian continued, “On Wednesday we did. We...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - For months, the U.S. State Department has stood behind its former boss Hillary Clinton as she has repeatedly said she did not send or receive classified information on her unsecured, private email account, a practice the government forbids. While the department is now stamping a few dozen of the publicly released emails as "Classified," it stresses this is not evidence of rule-breaking. Those stamps are new, it says, and do not mean the information was classified when Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner in the 2016 presidential election, first sent or received it. But the details included in...

    A federal judge said Thursday that former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s unique email arrangement broke “government policy” and prodded the department to talk to the FBI about getting a look at the computer server and flash drives used to store her emails. Judge Emmet G. Sullivan was surprised the State Department hadn’t even made that request, and poked at the administration’s claim that the FBI needed to be left alone to conduct its investigation.

    A White House national security official was fired last week after being caught as the mystery Tweeter who has been tormenting the foreign policy community with insulting comments and revealing internal Obama administration information for over two years. Jofi Joseph, a director in the non-proliferation section of the National Security Staff at the White House, has been surreptitiously tweeting under the moniker @natsecwonk, a Twitter feed famous inside Washington policy circles since it began in February, 2011 until it was shut down last week. Two administration officials confirmed that the mystery tweeter was Joseph, who has also worked at the...

The department, however, “has not located any such device,” and believes that they would have been destroyed or removed from the department's control.
