  • Wary of Trump immigration threat, NY may erase ID card data

    Associated Press ^ | Nov 15, 2016 9:32 PM EST | Deepti Hajela and Jennifer Peltz
    When New York City launched the nation’s biggest municipal ID card program last year, advocates said it would help people living in the U.S. illegally to venture out of the shadows. But since Donald Trump was elected president, city officials are instead fielding questions about whether the cards could put those same people at greater risk of being deported. The city has vowed to protect cardholders’ personal records and might even delete them using a kind of self-destruct provision that allows for the information to be destroyed at the end of the year. At least one state lawmaker has criticized...

    According to a new report from Fox News correspondents Adam Housley and Malia Zimmerman, guards hired through a contractor by the State Department to protect the U.S. consulate in Benghazi were unvetted, local militia members who belonged to terrorist groups Al Qaeda and Ansar al-Sharia.   An obscure private firm hired by the State Department over internal objections to protect U.S. diplomats in Benghazi just months before the American ambassador and three others were killed was staffed with hastily recruited locals with terror ties who helped carry out the attack, multiple sources told Fox News.

    An Iowa Congressman claimed on Sunday that Republicans on Capitol Hill have copies of the 650,000 emails the FBI recovered from a computer belonging to Anthony Weiner. 'The good thing is, Congress has preserved them for our access,' Iowa Rep. Steve King said before a Donald Trump rally in Sioux City. 'So the Weiner leaks, the WikiLeaks, you name your leaks, we've got our hands on all of them – 650,000 emails.' King also suggested that the number of emails related to the FBI investigation may be larger than 650,000.

    The most obnoxious spin of the 2016 campaign came this week, as Democrats, their media allies and even President Obama accused the FBI of stacking the election. It’s an extraordinary claim, coming as it does from the same crew that has—we now know—been stacking the election all along in the corridors of the Justice Department. This is the true November surprise. For four months, FBI Director James Comey has been the public face of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server. He played that role so well, putting the FBI so front and center, that the country forgot about Mr....

The FBI does not have those communications either, according to court documents.

In addition, the FBI was actively probing former Clinton Foundation board member and current Governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe, but...

During that press conference, he said that 110 emails on 52 separate chains contained classified information, that Clinton and her staff were extremely careless in handling sensitive information, and that there were three emails that they...

The emails are among the 5,600 work-related emails recovered by the FBI during its year-long probe of Clinton's server. The former secretary of state's staff deleted those records off her server before handing over 30,000 emails to the State Department in 2014, claiming the deleted documents were personal in nature. Roughly half of the deleted emails are copies of records included in the original batch of 30,000. That...

Instead of releasing everything on Dec. 31, State said it needed another few days to finish the group of Clinton messages. The...

    If Hillary Clinton and her supporters thought her email problems were behind them after the Democratic debate, those hopes could soon be dashed. Fox News reported this week that the FBI is looking into whether there's been any violation of the Espionage Act as a result of her use of a private, unsecured email system while secretary of state. When classified material started showing up in Clinton's emails, she argued that she'd done nothing wrong because none of the emails she sent or received was marked "classified" at the time. But violating the Espionage Act doesn't require that the information...

    When Bob Woodward, one of two Washington Post reporters who were instrumental in cracking open Watergate, went on MSNBC and compared Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal to Richard Nixon’s tapes, eyebrows went up all over Washington. Then it was reported that FBI analysts may be able to recover some of the e-mails that were “wiped” off of Hillary’s private server as well as learn who had access to it and whether outsiders tried to hack it. Comparisons to Nixon and his tapes are becoming more concrete. The comparison drew howling scorn from Clinton defenders. On Wednesday, veteran Clinton consigliere James Carville...

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (WPVI) -- Sources tell Action News that Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane will be charged Thursday after an ongoing investigation into a grand jury leak. The exact charges are not yet known. The investigation centered on whether Kane had a role in disclosing information about a 2009 grand jury investigation to the Philadelphia Daily News last year. A grand jury recommended in December that Kane be charged for engaging in a cover-up and lying about her role in the leak. The grand jury's allegations were referred to Montomgery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman.
