    Barack Obama's former White House communications director, Jen Psaki, appeared Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union," where she pushed back against Hillary Clinton's explanation for her 2016 presidential election loss. Host Jake Tapper asked Psaki what she thought of Clinton's statement on Tuesday in which she blamed her loss on FBI Director James Comey and Russian hackings. "I was on the way to winning until the combination of Jim Comey's letter on Oct. 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off–and the evidence for that...

    The State Department acknowledged Wednesday that someone in its public affairs bureau made a “deliberate” request that several minutes of tape be cut from the video of a 2013 press briefing in which a reporter asked if the administration had lied about secret talks with Iran. The embarrassing admission by State Department spokesman John Kirby came three weeks after another spokesperson insisted that a “glitch” had caused the gap, discovered only last month by the reporter whose questioning had mysteriously disappeared. “This wasn’t a technical glitch, this was a deliberate step to excise the video,” Kirby told reporters. Kirby said...

    Before White House communications director Jennifer Palmieri left her job for the Clinton campaign, she emailed  State Department spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki to discuss how Secretary of State John Kerry could avoid the “swirl of crap” questions from the media about Hillary Clinton’s private email server. The Wall Street Journal was shown the emails by the Republican National Committee, which obtained them via a FOIA request. Palmieri emailed Psaki, asking if it was possible “between us on the shows … think we can get this done so he is not asked about email.”

    In case you missed it over the weekend, National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes admitted in a lengthy New York Times Magazine profile that the Obama administration used the media to manipulate and lie to the American people about the nuclear deal with Iran. Here is one of the lies pushed by the administration, which David Reaboi highlighted yesterday at The Federalist. First, the lies and the denials about the negotiations. It took months before a few dogged journalists started to ask questions about the talks Obama officials were engaged in with Ahmadinejad’s regime. In February 2013, then-State Department Spokesperson Victoria Nuland...

    A State Department video has been altered in what could be an attempt to hide a 2013 discussion with reporters about whether the Obama administration lied about when it first began the Iran nuclear talks. Fox News reporter James Rosen reported Monday night that a section of a Dec. 2, 2013 press briefing was somehow erased from the State Department's own video of the event. In the section that was erased, Rosen was interviewing then-spokeswoman Jen Psaki about when the talks started.

    Poor Marie Harf! Shortly after attaining immortality by having her name become a verb, she suffered the ultimate indignity: her boss left, and a white male has been hired to fill the vacancy instead of promoting her. Jamie Crawford and Elise Labott of CNN report: Rear Admiral John Kirby, the Pentagon's chief spokesman, will shift over to the State Department, according to a senior administration official. In replacing Jen Psaki, who recently returned to the White House to serve as communications director, Kirby would be the first spokesman to have represented both the Defense and State departments.

    State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Tuesday the agency is “fairly certain” that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not sign a separation statement upon her departure from Foggy Bottom. “We don’t have record of it,” Psaki admitted. “Can you put to rest the questions that you have not been able to answer to this point about former Secretary Clinton, whether she signed this separation form or not?” asked The Associated Press’ Matt Lee. “Well, we have reviewed Secretary Clinton’s official personal file and administrative files and do not have any record of her signing any of the 0F-109,”...

    (CNSNews.com) - "I don't think former secretaries are standard employees," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said at Monday's briefing. She was responding to questions about Hillary Clinton's OF-109 form, the document that every State Department employee must sign when they leave the agency, certifying that they have "surrendered to responsible officials" all classified, unclassified and other work-related documents in their possession. Departing employees also must certify that they "understand the criminal penalties relating to U.S. Government records," including the concealment, removal, or mutilation of those records. As of Monday, the State Department still couldn't say whether former Secretary of State...

    Before Hillary Clinton’s news conference yesterday, Jen Psaki, the spokesperson for the United States Department of State, stated that the White House could not immediately released the former Secretary of State’s emails because “it will take several months” to redact all the classified things she sent. Despite this, Ms. Clinton then stated in her press conference, “I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. I’m certainly well aware of the classification requirements and did not send classified material.” Someone is not telling the truth. Either Ms. Psaki lied in order to prevent the immediate release of...

    Isn’t this interesting? The offices of a Dallas law firm representing a high-profile State Department whistleblower were broken into last weekend. Burglars stole three computers and broke into the firm’s file cabinets. But silver bars, video equipment and other valuables were left untouched, according to local Fox affiliate KDFW, which aired security camera footage of the suspected burglars entering and leaving the offices around the time of the incident. The firm Schulman & Mathias represents Aurelia Fedenisn, a former investigator at the State Department’s Office of the Inspector General. In recent weeks, she raised a slew of explosive allegations against...

    The Obama administration’s new excuse to explain why Vice-President Joe Biden will be “out of the country” when Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addresses Congress next month is that he has to attend a Panama government inauguration – that occurred last July. The vice president of the United States normally attends joint sessions of Congress, but National Security Council Spokesperson Bernadette Meehan stated last month, “As a matter of long-standing practice and principle, we do not see heads of state or candidates in close proximity to their elections…. The President has been clear about his opposition to Congress passing new legislation...

    Earlier this week the United States and other western powers evacuated Yemen, citing concerns about security in the rapidly deteriorating country. On the way out of the country, U.S. Marines were instructed to destroy their weapons and U.S. vehicles were taken over by Houthi rebels.  Now, without a presence there, the State Department is arguing rebel Houthis can be trusted to keep their word and to respect the U.S. embassy until it can be reoccupied. Houthis have been seen on video calling for "death to America," just brought down the U.S. backed Yemeni government and have ties to terrorism.  Last...

    State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki declined on Friday to directly say whether the murder of three U.S. civilians at the airport in Kabul, Afghanistan, on Thursday—which the Taliban claimed responsibility for--was an act of terrorism. “Obviously any attack that kills contractors, that kills individuals who are working there in harm’s way, is horrific and a tragedy but I’m not going to put new labels on it today.” She also said: “We see a difference between Taliban and ISIL.”
