    Democrats on the House Committee on Benghazi are calling on the panel’s Republican chairman to withdraw subpoenas sent to the State Department for Hillary Clinton’s personal emails. In a letter sent to Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) on Friday, the five Democrats on the panel criticized Gowdy for issuing the formal request for documents from Clinton’s term as secretary of state without consulting with Democrats and accused the committee of operating as a campaign arm of the Republican National Committee. “Issuing this subpoena unilaterally with no deliberation by committee members, leaking information about the subpoena before informing Democratic Members, and providing...

    Dr. Salomon Melgen made a name for himself as a major Democratic Party donor over the last several decades. His commitment to the cause has earned him a photo op with President Obama and various donations to candidates and causes. His repeated donations to Senator Robert Menendez also came with flights to the Caribbean that are now under federal investigations. 130319_obama_melgen_courtesy_328 Turns out that Melgen and his wife Flor have funneled money to Bill and Hillary Clinton, as well. Even more alarming the Florida eye doctor also made several payments to Hillary Clinton’s brother, Hugh Rodham. The record, spanning back...

    In Soviet Russia for a period of four years a great terror overcame the communist party in what later became known as the great purge. It was the culmination of years of social engineering ending in the consolidation of Stalin’s brand of communism having ultimate power. We are seeing something very similar happening in the democrat party today. After six years of “change” the Chicago progressives want to consolidate their power for the 2016 run at the presidency.

    The White House, State Department and Hillary Clinton’s personal office knew in August that House Republicans had received information showing that the former secretary of state conducted official government business through her private email account — and Clinton’s staff made the decision to keep quiet. Sources familiar with the discussions say key people in the Obama administration and on Clinton’s staff were aware that the revelation could be explosive for the all-but-announced candidate for president. But those involved deferred to Clinton’s aides, and they decided not to respond. In the end, Clinton’s staff waited six months — until after the...

    WASHINGTON — President Clinton and his wife started shipping White House furniture to the Clintons' newly purchased home in New York more than a year ago, despite questions at the time by the White House chief usher about whether they were entitled to remove the items. At least one of these items, a Ficks-Reed wicker table, was logged in at the White House on Feb. 8, 1993. The widow of the manufacturer, Joy Ficks, said last week that it was meant for the White House, not the Clintons. This week, the Clintons returned the four items to the White House,...

    The fight over Hillary Clinton’s private email system is moving to the courts as a conservative legal activist presses for contempt proceedings against the former secretary of state and one of her top aides. Longtime Clinton nemesis Larry Klayman filed motions late Thursday asking the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to send two cases pending there back to lower courts so they can explore whether Clinton’s use of a private email account during her tenure as secretary led to incomplete and inaccurate responses from the State Department to Freedom of Information Act lawsuits.

    Democrats don't actually have the luxury of standing by and seeing how this all plays out. Hillary Clinton is their candidate; their putative nominee. Over the past six years, there's been a sharp structural decline of elected Democrats everywhere below the presidential level. Sure, we all know about how the Republicans regained control of the Senate in 2014, but what about the fact that blue-state governors fell like tent poles? Or that GOP governors now outnumber the Democrats by almost two-to-one, 31 to 18. Or that Republicans have complete control of nearly three times as many state legislatures as the...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — No, it's not always a room filled with wires and glowing blue lights. It's probably not even the size of your furnace. The personal email server used by Hillary Rodham Clinton during her time as secretary of state was probably about the size of your office desktop computer and could have been tucked quietly in a corner somewhere. She's come a long way since 1997, when Clinton's staff bought the then-first lady a copy of the book "E-Mail for Dummies." Setting up your own email server is something only the geekiest of tech geeks do because of...

    Fleischer, who served under George W.

"If it's done from a personal account, I guarantee you China, Russia and Iran have them," Fleischer said Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show." The New York Times reported on Monday that Clinton used a personal email address to conduct official government business during her stint as secretary of state, possibly violating rules that official correspondence be retained.

    Historically, the Clintons have proved to be politically indestructible. To paraphrase the movie Aliens, to truly destroy the Clinton-Industrial Complex, you’d have to nuke it from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure. Given that alone, I doubt that the unfolding controversy over Hillary’s e-mail schemes spells her doom. The basic details are as follows: In 2009, a week before she started her job as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton had a personal Internet server registered at her home address. She then used her own domain name, “clintonemail.com,” to conduct all of her business — for the State Department,...

    Honestly, it may be their best remaining play. They can’t claim that private e-mail is good practice when the State Department itself is on record as saying it isn’t. They can’t claim that it’s basically as secure as government e-mail when even lefty sites are reporting that that’s wildly untrue. On the merits, in terms of national security and as evidence of the creepy lengths to which President Claire Underwood will go in the name of evading accountability, it’s a total disaster. The only move left on this chessboard is to ignore all that and simply insist that voters won’t...

    President Obama has quietly promised Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren complete support if she runs for president — a stinging rebuke to his nemesis Hillary Clinton, sources tell me. Publicly, Obama has remained noncommittal on the 2016 race, but privately he worries that Clinton would undo and undermine many of his policies. There’s also a personal animosity, especially with Bill Clinton, that dates from their tough race six years ago. A former Harvard law professor and administration aide, Warren would energize the left wing of the Democratic Party just as Obama did against Clinton in 2008. Thanks to her outspoken stand...

    Although Hillary Clinton and her allies may be claiming that her private e-mail system is no big deal, Hillary’s State Department actually forced the 2012 resignation of the U.S. ambassador to Kenya in part for setting up an unsanctioned private e-mail system. According to a 2012 report from the State Department’s inspector general, former U.S. ambassador to Kenya Scott Gration set up a private e-mail system for his office in 2011.The inspector general’s report offered a scathing assessment of Gration’s information security practices — practices that are eerily similar to those undertaken by Clinton while she served as Secretary...

The revelations, reported initially in the most left-wing newspaper in the nation, The New York Times, that Hillary Clinton used her own private emails to conduct public business, suggests that there are forces within the Democratic Party that do not want her to be its candidate for President in 2016. It’s not like Hillary did not know she was supposed to use the State Department’s email system for reasons of...

    If Hillary Clinton succeeds Obama as president, expect four to eight more years of nonstop lying and deceit. Hillary, like Obama, is constitutionally incapable of telling the truth. Democrats are circling the wagons to shield their likely 2016 presidential nominee after it was revealed that Hillary Clinton transacted sensitive government business using her personal email during her time as America’s top diplomat. The Benghazi bungler, the nation has learned, set up an email system worthy of a James Bond movie villain when she became U.S. secretary of state in 2009. Mrs. Clinton used private instead of government email and even...

    Hillary Clinton's secret email account was HDR22@clintonemail.com.  HDR stands for the initials of her maiden name, Hillary Diane Rodham.  22 is a clever by half reference to Title 22 of the US Code which covers diplomatic law.  The official title of section 22 is Foreign Relations and Intercourse. (see below for link to Title 22)  https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/22 It's a lawyer joke/reference to the Code that covers foreign relations by a lawyer about to become Secretary of State.  Such an account is corrupt and illegal for a Secretary of State.  It is Nixonian.  It was meant to maintain control over information and...

    Meet Diane Reynolds. Diane is 43 years young, and she likes shopping at Chico’s and drinking wine spritzers. She drives a sensible SUV, visits her book club once a week, and enjoys the benefits of a secret email server hidden in her mother’s basement, and her mother just so happens to be Secretary of State.That is because “Diane Reynolds” is actually the pseudonym of Chelsea Clinton, who the New York Times recently learned had her own secret email on the ClintonEmail.com servers. (Note: We have chosen a photo that best approximates what we believe a woman named “Diane Reynolds”...

    What are the potential consequences for Hillary Clinton for using a personal email account during her time as secretary of state? On Wednesday, the House Select Committee on Benghazi issued her a subpoena for all communications related to the investigation. Judge Andrew Napolitano sat down with Martha MacCallum to go over the two potential criminal investigations that the former First Lady could face. 1. The less serious possibility is an investigation similar to what was brought against Gen. David Petraeus, who pleaded guilty this week for keeping classified documents in an unsecured location.

    March 5, 2015 A cornered Clinton is a craven Clinton, which is why we should view Hillary Rodham Clinton's latest public relations trick with practiced skepticism. "I want the public to see my email," she tweeted Wednesday night. "I asked State to release them. They said they will review them for release as soon as possible."

    After days of controversy surrounding the use of personal email for all of her official State Department Business, former Secretary Hillary Clinton is breaking her silence. Late Wednesday night Clinton sent out a tweet saying she has asked the State Department to release her emails. As soon as possible? How about Clinton, who has access to all of her emails thanks to running private server from her house, releases them herself? And if she really wants the public to read her emails, she should do it now. State Department Spokeswoman Marie Harf, who has defended Clinton's use of private email...

    It must have seemed like a good idea at the time to prosecute General David Petraeus over mishandling of classified material. But that was before it came to light that Hillary Clinton did not bother with an official and secure State Department email account, instead preferring to use a private server under her own control that lacked the kind of security measures in place at the state.gov domain. Now, explicit comparisons of the two former officials are being drawn.

    Hillary Clinton probably will remain the inevitable Democratic presidential nominee in 2016, even if only because the Democratic Party is woefully short on viable alternative presidential candidates. A variety of Democratic opinion makers have begun to engage in the unthinkable process of envisioning what a post-Clinton 2016 field might look like if the former secretary of stateÂ’s campaign capsizes under the weight of her own carelessness and flagrant disregard for the law. The latest to join the chorus of speculators is National JournalÂ’s Emma Roller who perhaps advertently highlighted the fact that the sitting Vice President of the United States...
