    Bristol Palin is loving the latest Hillary Clinton email dump. In particular, she enjoyed the 2011 message the then-Secretary of State sent in which she said she opposed the adoption of gender neutral language for fear that it would trigger a “huge Fox-generated media storm led by [Sarah] Palin et al.” “There’s so much to love about this, it’s difficult to know where to start,” Bristol Palin wrote in a blog post Thursday, sounding more and more like her mother every day. “First of all, Hillary Clinton, the great tolerant one with rainbow Twitter avatars granting open-mindedness to any family...

  • If Edward Snowden Is Right About Clinton's Emails, Bernie Sanders Will Win a Landslide Victory

    The Huffington Post's Politics The Blog ^ | October 1, 2015 | H.A. Goodman, columnist
    Perhaps nobody on the planet knows more about intelligence protocol than Edward Snowden. If Snowden says it's "completely ridiculous" to believe that Clinton's emails were safe, then yes, it's fair to include his viewpoint in any critique of Hillary Clinton's latest controversy. In addition, since I believe Senator Bernie Sanders is desperately needed at this point in U.S. history, and electing Clinton or a Republican would essentially be nominating the same president on war and foreign policy, it's important to address relevant analysis of the email controversy. There seems to be a bizarre paradigm of thought among some Democrats that...

    Democrats are trying to shut down the Benghazi investigative committee two weeks before the panel is scheduled to hear testimony, saying a top House Republican unwittingly exposed the political goals of the long-running probe. Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, the California Republican who is the front-runner to be the next House Speaker, said in an interview this week that the committee, formed to probe the 2012 terrorist attack in Libya that killed four Americans, has been worth it because it exposed former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s email practices. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that while the probe should be...

    More than 5 percent of the latest batch of emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, released Wednesday, contain classified information — or twice the rate of the previous releases, raising tricky questions about whether the department is finding more secrets or being more thorough in screening the messages. All told, there are at least 400 messages that contain information the government now deems classified, out of nearly 12,000 emails released so far. But 214 of those messages came in the latest batch of 3,869 messages, for a classification rate of 5.5 percent.

The court is considering a request from Judicial Watch for a preservation order to protect all emails in the possession of Clinton, her lawyers and her former aides. The issue arises in a lawsuit brought on by Judicial Watch against the U.S. Department of State. Judicial Watch’s preservation order proposal would protect any emails Clinton and her lawyers unilaterally determined to be personal. (Judicial Watch v.

Following our second review of former Secretary Clinton’s emails… the Department is producing a small number of emails relating to Benghazi,” the official said. The official could not say precisely how many Benghazi-related Clinton emails the State Department missed in its original review, but characterized it

Judge Emmet G.

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...

Since he is the superior and she is the subordinate she cannot be held liable for merely following orders. To do so would seriously degrade discipline, obedience, and loyalty...

No one grows defensive for her. It does not seem possible that more candidates, big ones, won’t get in.” A Journal editorial today adds that the “admission that her aides were also using her server demolishes Mrs. Clinton’s previous claim that she used this server for personal ‘convenience.’ She was really running a parallel mini-State email operation.”

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 2009.

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.

And even if she were, it was widely known at the time that Secretary of State Colin Powell's subordinate, Richard Armitage, had most likely disclosed her status earlier.

    Two top Senate investigators offered potential immunity Tuesday to Bryan Pagliano, the staffer who set up the email server in former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s home, in exchange for testimony about her activities. Mr. Pagliano last week said he would assert his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in refusing to answer questions about the matter, but Sens. Charles E. Grassley and Ron Johnson, the chairmen of two key committees investigating the situation, said they have authority to extend immunity if Mr. Pagliano is willing to talk. They proposed a proffer session, where Mr. Pagliano would let them know...

    Hillary Clinton said she doesn't need to apologize for using a private email account while leading the State Department, saying "what I did was allowed." In a Monday interview with the Associated Press, Clinton downplayed how the email controversy may have affected her campaign and reiterated that she never sent and received information marked as classified at the time. "Not much," she replied when asked how it affected her as a candidate. "I have worked really hard this summer, sticking to my game plan about how I wanted to sort of reintroduce myself to the American people," she said. When...

    WASHINGTON — A special intelligence review of two emails that Hillary Rodham Clinton received as secretary of state on her personal account — including one about North Korea’s nuclear weapons program — has endorsed a finding by the inspector general for the intelligence agencies that the emails contained highly classified information when Mrs. Clinton received them, senior intelligence officials said. Mrs. Clinton’s presidential campaign and the State Department disputed the inspector general’s finding last month and questioned whether the emails, which are being released to the public, had been overclassified by an arbitrary process. But the special review — by...

E mails make it easier and quicker that ever to get things done. And then this is the government. In government, e mails can be used to coerce, to intimidate, to hide all the machinati0ons that this administration does not want the...

    In yet another attempt to dampen the negative implications emanating from her 2009 decision to use a private email account for official State Department business, Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she was “sorry that people are so confused by the issue.” Clinton acknowledged that “the decision was not well thought out. I didn’t stop to think about the potential downside of using an unsecured network for the highly confidential messages my work would entail. I was too eager to dive into the much more important business of resolving the diplomatic mess left behind by...

    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...
