    Donald Trump has blasted Hillary Clinton for accepting money from Saudi Arabia through her foundation, but a Daily News investigation reveals he has padded his bank account with cash from the same country. Trump sold the 45th floor of Trump World Tower to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for $4.5 million in June 2001, according to a city Finance Department spokeswoman. In 2008, the apartments became part of the Saudi Mission to the United Nations, records show. The five apartments included 10 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms at the time of the sale, and had yearly common charges of $85,585 for...

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani told "Fox News Sunday" he would indict the Clinton Foundation as a "racketeering enterprise" if he "were back at my old job as U.S. Attorney." "This in an insider vs. outsider campaign," Giuliani said Sunday of the presidential race between Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump. "She is the consummate corrupt Washington insider, and she is thoroughly corrupt with the Clinton Foundation." Giuliani has been stumping for presidential nominee Trump against Mrs. Clinton this summer and points to the actions of her foundation to be far more serious than merely unethical....

    Washington (CNN)Newly released emails from Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state raise questions about the nature of the department's relationship with the Clinton Foundation. Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group, released 296 pages of emails from the Democratic presidential nominee, including 44 that Judicial Watch says were not previously handed over to the State Department by Clinton. The emails, many of which are heavily redacted, raise questions about the Clinton Foundation's influence on the State Department and its relations during her tenure. In one instance, top Clinton Foundation official Doug Band lobbied Clinton aides for a job for someone...

Her brief, Zeifman told me, was so fraudulent and ridiculous, she would have been disbarred if she had submitted it to a judge. She attempted to deny Nixon legal counsel because there was no precedent. But that, too, was a lie. There was an impeachment attempt against Supreme Court William O. Douglas just a few years earlier, in 1970 and Douglas was permitted to have legal representation. Hillary knew it was a lie, too. Because, as her boss...

The series of letters, sent Friday and signed by 19 of the 22 Republican members of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee, renew an earlier request to the state attorneys general for information detailing their communications with environmental organizations. They also ask for communications between employees for the state attorneys general and the Justice Department, the Environmental Protection Agency, or the White House.

"The agents are investigating the possible intersection of Clinton Foundation donations, the dispensation of State Department contracts and whether regular processes were followed," one source said.

    Now, as polls show Clinton neck-in-neck with all her potential GOP challengers and that two-thirds of the nation thinks she is a crook and can't be trusted, she is calling on her "husband", former president Bill Clinton to campaign for her. This, naturally, has provided fodder for Donald Trump's twitter account. Hillary Clinton has announced that she is letting her husband out to campaign but HE'S DEMONSTRATED A PENCHANT FOR SEXISM, so inappropriate! -- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 27, 2015 He is absolutely right. Bill Clinton is a serial sexual predator. There is no other way to describe him....

    Today, 21 October 2015 and over the coming days WikiLeaks is releasing documents from one of CIA chief John Brennan's non-government email accounts. Brennan used the account occasionally for several intelligence related projects.

Brennan was made Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism on the commencement of the Obama presidency in 2009--a position he held until taking up his role as CIA chief. According to the...

    Could the failed Obamacare exchanges have been merely an excuse to direct payola to safely Democratic states? Based on a new report from the Government Accountability Office, and the actions of acting head of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Studies (CMS) Andrew Slavitt, the answer may well be yes. Lets start with the report. Americans for Tax Reform summarized its findings: In all likelihood, officials were aware of the issues facing these states before exchanges launched. According to GAO, CMS conducted reviews on 15 state-based exchanges in August and September of 2013. Even though these tests found multiple issues...
