  • Judge Deals Government Blow Over Facebook Evidence In Refuge Trial ( Bundy : Malheur : Oregon )

    It was a rough morning for U.S. attorneys arguing the federal government’s case against Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy and six other defendants accused of conspiring to occupy an Oregon wildlife refuge. A visibly frustrated Judge Anna Brown struck from the record a previous ruling that effectively allowed evidence from defendants’ Facebook accounts into next month’s trial. Despite calling an assistant U.S. attorney, two legal assistants and an FBI agent as witnesses, prosecutors weren’t able to explain to the court how protected information from 11 Facebook accounts used by defendants ended up being shared as part of discovery. Judge Brown ordered...

    Emails released on Monday show that Hillary Clinton’s top State Department aide, Huma Abedin, left classified government information that needed to be burned in the front seat of her vehicle. “Favor” is the subject of Abedin’s July 20, 2009 email to Lauren Jiloty, Clinton’s personal assistant. Judicial Watch obtained the records and hundreds more pages of Abedin emails as part of its ongoing Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the State Department. “I’m going to have ambassador ride on next drive,” wrote Abedin. “There’s a bunch of burn stuff in the pocket of my front seat.” And seemingly realizing the...

    The FBI uncovered nearly 15,000 more emails and materials sent to or from Hillary Clinton as part of the agency's investigation into her use of private email at the State Department. The documents were not among the 30,000 work-related emails turned over to the State Department by her attorneys in December 2014. The State Department confirmed it has received "tens of thousands" of personal and work-related email materials — including the 14,900 emails found by the FBI — that it will review. The number of emails provided by the FBI to the State Department for review is much higher than...

    Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has claimed that she told the truth to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) when she was interviewed last month about her private email server and her mis-handling of classified information. However, discrepancies between what she told the FBI that former Secretary of State Colin Powell told her about using private email while in office, and what Powell himself says that he told her, indicate that she did not tell the truth to the FBI. For months, Democrats have tried to deflect controversy over Clinton’s private email server, and her destruction of emails her attorneys...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The State Department says it is reviewing nearly 15,000 previously undisclosed emails recovered as part of the FBI's now-closed investigation into the handling of sensitive information that flowed through Hillary Clinton's private home server. Lawyers for the department told a federal judge Monday that they anticipate processing and releasing the first batch of these new emails in mid-October. That raises the prospect that the new messages could become public just before November's presidential election. The department says it does not yet know what portion of the emails is related to Clinton's tenure as secretary of state.

"So we have a second set of documents that's now different," Chaffetz said. "When you turn them page by page, they're different. I don't know why that happened." Chaffetz went on to criticize the second set of documents as embarrassing, especially after the FBI claimed the material was classified.

The State Department is expected to discuss when and how it will release the emails Monday morning in federal court. The total — confirmed by the Justice Department -- was disclosed by a conservative legal group after the State Department said last week that it would hand over the emails. The number to be released is nearly 50 percent more than the 30,000-plus that Clinton’s lawyers deemed work-related and...

In a letter to congressional investigators, the FBI’s chief liaison to Capitol Hill said Mrs. Clinton did handle three messages with a “(C)” mark next to paragraphs, “ostensibly indicating” the following information as classified. But Jason V. Herring said that’s not enough to show she was negligent. Mr. Herring also questioned whether the laws against handling classified material in a “grossly negligent” way would...

    FBI Director James Comey gestures during an address to the American Bar Association annual meeting SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The FBI's director said Friday the agency is collecting data to present next year in hopes of sparking a national conversation about law enforcement's increasing inability to access encrypted electronic devices. Speaking Friday at the American Bar Association annual conference in San Francisco, James Comey said the agency was unable to access 650 of 5,000 electronic devices investigators attempted to search over the last 10 months. He said the problem is only going to get worse without a discussion about the...

    Tom Cotton: Hillary Clinton’s Email Sealed the Fate Of An Iranian Scientist (VIDEO) Posted at 3:38 pm on August 7, 2016 by streiff Back in 2009, an Iranian nuclear scientist, Shahram Amiri, defected to the United States. What ensued was a complicated story that resulted in Amiri claiming he'd been abducted by the CIA, tortured, released, and finally repatriated to Iran. His heroic welcome from the Great Satan in 2010 was followed by his arrest for treason. Today the Iranians announced they had executed him. Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton was on Face the Nation and the subject came up.

    As if we needed a reminder that the Augean Stables of our federal government need to be cleansed from top to bottom, this week brought news of an FBI agent encouraging a would-be Muslim assassin in the days leading up to the jihadist assault on Garland, Texas. I’m not one prone to conspiracy theories, but combined with the acknowledgement that Pamela Geller, the primary target of this assassination attempt, has not been contacted by law enforcement authorities in the wake of this latest development, you have to wonder what exactly is going on in Quantico. We have a Justice Department...

    Showing how much the liberal media is in the tank for Hillary Clinton in this election, reporters at the joint conference of National Association of Black Journalists and National Association of Hispanic Journalists on Friday afternoon wildly applauded ClintonÂ’s far-left answers to a slew of softball questions about immigration, the electorate, and even whether she has any black friends. The gathered journalists had already given Clinton a friendly reception during her speech before NBCÂ’s Kristen Welker and TelemundoÂ’s Lori Montenegro came out to moderate the question and answer session (not to be confused with the press conferences sheÂ’s avoided for...

    Worth taking the time to read because this story is starting to leak out from FBI agents and others “who are in the know” inside the Washington beltway! The agents at the FBI are livid that Comey did what he did. They are claiming there was more than sufficient evidence to bring several indictments against Hillary Clinton. It wasn’t a slam dunk case, but it had more than a good probability of a conviction for Hillary Clinton. Lynch and Obama made it clear to Comey that if he pressed for an indictment, he would be taking the Democrat nominee for...

    Judge Jeanine brings up some excellent points. No way could Hillary have been asked by the FBI if she had sent classified info. They already knew she had, so a "No" answer would be criminal. A "Yes" answer would've been even more criminal.

    "It think with how the election's going and they're really getting into it, people are fearful and they're buying stuff that they won't be able to get if the wrong person gets in," he said. Shamonsky is far from the only firearms dealer seeing a boost in business. The FBI reported recently that it processed nearly 2.2 million gun background checks last month, making it the busiest July on record and 15th consecutive record-setting month.
