    Have we come to expect this now of our United States attorneys general? The image is still emblazoned on my mind: those Black Panthers with billy clubs and paramilitary outfits confronting voters at a voting station. Video, proof, and no action from then-attorney general Eric Holder. Now we have Loretta Lynch, a family friend of Eric Holder and his wife, and also a person who received her big career break from Bill Clinton. Eric Holder, who was held in contempt of Congress, who sued states that attempted to enforce purposely unenforced federal law, never provided all Fast and Furious documents...

In all, 422 backup tapes holding the emails were magnetically degaussed despite an agency-wide preservation order and congressional subpoena.

    There have been dozens of questions surrounding the disappearance of emails belonging to former IRS official Lois Lerner, the woman at the center of the IRS targeting scandal. Some of Lerner's emails have been recovered, after IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said under oath they were lost forever. Thousands are still missing. But perhaps the most compelling questions that have been asked since the IRS targeting scandal broke in May 2013 are 1) Exactly where were Lerner's emails and backup tapes destroyed? 2) Who destroyed them? Now, we have an answer. According to Americans for Tax Reform,Lerner's hard drive was...

Officers of the court who fail to comply with court orders will be held in contempt, Judge Sullivan said in a published order. On July 1, at...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told reporters earlier this year that she chose to use a personal email server for convenience, opting to carry just one device while she served at the State Department. But her use of a personal email server for official purposes has been anything but convenient for the agencies charged with reviewing her emails for public release. The choice has created major headaches for the agencies as they grapple with the issues raised by the situation: a cabinet-level official with access to wide sources of potentially classified information using her own email server to send...

    Such is the self-absorbed arrogance of the Clintons that Hillary actually thought she could get away with the criminal activity of conducting her government business on a personal server and keeping and transmitting classified data in violation of federal law. It was a server as vulnerable to foreign hacking as any in the private sector that has been hacked, or the servers at the foreign-hacked Office of Personnel Management. She put her country at risk, and now her personal political ambitions as well. Only the disinterested Justice Department of the administration she served and a sycophantic press will save her...

Department spokesman John Kirby said at a news briefing the latest batch of emails would cover March through December 2009. "We recognize it's an inconvenient time," Kirby said of the nighttime release. He said State officials would be working until the last minute to get the second tranche of emails out to meet a court-ordered deadline.

    Cookies have played a part in previous Clinton campaigns: Like the time, in 1992, when Hillary Rodham Clinton faced a criticism when she said, in response to a question about her legal career: I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas. Twenty-three years later, this time in her own campaign for president, Mrs. Clinton pinned a recipe for chocolate chip cookies under the Summer Style category of her brand new Pinterest page. The page also shows off a Grillery Clinton apron (modeled by a young campaign aide) and Iowa cherry pie with the campaigns H...

    MADISON, Wis. Democrat Milwaukee County prosecutors tapped the email and text communications of conservative activists as part of a five-year probe aimed at bringing down Republican Gov. Scott Walker, affidavits reviewed by Wisconsin Watchdog reveal. One target of the spying operation told Wisconsin Watchdog the methods used to keep tabs on Wisconsin residents were like those of the National Security Agencys domestic spying program. It was actually worse because (Milwaukee County prosecutors) were taking the body of emails and looking at actual data, said the source, who asked not to be identified for fear of retribution from the prosecutors....

    National Journal reporter Ron Fournier said Monday on Morning Joe that Hillary Clinton has undermined the publics trust in government and politics. White House officials tell me theyre disgusted with the fact that Hillary Clinton violated their rules on foreign donations, violated their rules on email, Fournier said. Well, I havent heard the president rebuke her. I havent seen his State Department investigate this. So Ive got to assume that the Obama White House is complicit in this lack of transparency and in this rule breaking and whatever else is going on that we dont know about.

    "....The Democratic front-runner has only herself to blame. After the House Select Benghazi Committee released some new emails this past week, the Obama State Dept. was forced to admit it was not in possession of some Clinton emails that clearly discuss Department business... Now, will some Republicans blow this out of proportion or wander into the realm of conspiracy theory? Perhaps, even probably, but as Democrats accuse them of being partisan or reckless, remember this: This would not be an issue if Clinton hadn't erased her email server..."

    The State Department says there won't be an internal investigation into why the agency couldnt find part or all of 15 emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clintons personal email server. I know of no such investigation, certainly not by the State Department, no, State Department spokesman John Kirby said during a Friday press briefing. We were clear about that in our communication with the committee that of the 15 that we did not have, that Mr. Blumenthal had, they were not specifically related to Benghazi, which was the original mandate on the select committee, Kirby said. Again, we...

    Much of the case for Hillary is that, sure, she's dishonest and self-serving, but she's so smart! No. She's not. She's dumb Not that anyone ever believed she did, but its hilarious that Trey Gowdys House Select Committee on Benghazi was able to demonstrate so easily - just by questioning Hillary crony Sid Blumenthal - that there were at least 15 e-mails on Hillarys private server that were quite work-related and most certainly not printed out and given to the State Department as Hillary claimed. Its like shooting fish in a barrel at this point to keep making the case...

    Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that she provided all my emails that could possibly be work-related to the State Department in a March 10, 2015 press conference. Hillary said, after I left office, the State Department asked former Secretaries of State for our assistance in providing copies of work-related emails from our personal accounts. I responded right away, and provided all my emails that could possibly be work-related, which totaled roughly 55,000 printed pages,

    WASHINGTON (AP) IRS employees erased computer backup tapes a month after officials discovered that thousands of emails related to the tax agency's tea party scandal had been lost, according to government investigators. The investigators, however, concluded that employees erased the tapes by mistake, not as part of an attempt to destroy evidence. As many as 24,000 emails were lost because 422 backup tapes were erased, according to J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration. The revelation is likely to fuel conspiracy theories among conservatives who say the IRS has obstructed congressional investigations into the scandal. George...

    Congress released nearly 200 pages of newly uncovered emails involving former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, raising questions Monday about whether the Obama administration and the Democratic presidential candidate herself were truthful when they said they turned over all of her email communications on Benghazi. Rep. Trey Gowdy, chairman of the select House committee looking into the 2012 terrorist attack in Libya, demanded the State Department say whether it has the emails a way of testing whether the administration withheld them against the wishes of the committee, or whether Mrs. Clinton never turned them over in the first...

    Reacting to the disclosure that Hillary Clinton exclusively used a private email account during her tenure as secretary of state, a federal judge agreed Friday to reopen a conservative group's Freedom of Information Act lawsuit seeking details about the employment arrangements of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin. However, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan declined for now to address claims from Judicial Watch that Clinton's use of the private account and server led State Department officials to commit a fraud on the court by certifying they had turned over all responsive records.
