    Emails from a top Clinton adviser containing classified military intelligence information, and one from a top aide containing sensitive FBI information about the Benghazi terror attack, were among the thousands Hillary Clinton stored on her personal server, Fox News has learned. The revelation came as the Democratic presidential candidate and former secretary of state tried to brush aside the burgeoning scandal, joking at a campaign event when asked by Fox News whether she had wiped her private server clean, "What, with like with a cloth or something?

"I think [Clinton] may not be able to run, to be honest, because this whole email thing is a horrible thing," he said in an interview conducted by NBC's Chuck Todd.

As the politically explosive story in the New York Times demonstrates, the depths of the Clintons’ corruption and avarice is stunning. The facts in the Times story are utterly damning and prima facie evidence of a conflict of interest. If foreign governments, including adversarial ones like Russia, paid the Clinton Foundation and/or Bill Clinton huge sums of money, they assured themselves favorable treatment. (Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that...

    It was probably inevitable that the woman always at Hillary Clinton’s side would one day be sucked into the vortex of suspicion and scandal surrounding the Democratic presidential frontrunner. For top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, that day seems to have arrived. Though rumors of impropriety have swirled around Abedin for over two years, in the past two weeks they’ve snowballed into concrete allegations. Last week, the State Department inspector general claimed that the trusted Clinton confidant owes the government nearly $10,000 for violating rules regarding vacation and sick leave. And in court on Monday, Hillary Clinton admitted Abedin had an...

    Former U.S. Rep.

That’s because of lifetime restrictions on his residency stemming from his conviction decades ago for having sex with an underage campaign worker. After shooting down two possibilities Thursday — including a residence near a kids center in Bartlett and a Red Roof Inn in Indiana — U.S. Magistrate Judge Maria Valdez told him to return to her courtroom and try again Friday afternoon.

    It is rare for news events, even as momentous as the past week's, to drown out absolute proof that a candidate for president has lied willfully to the public and Congress.

Americans learned this spring that Hillary Clinton, in contravention of federal records rules and current law, conducted all her State Department business using a private email address, housed in a server at her home in Westchester County, N.Y....

Now some of her Republican rivals, unimaginative but ever-hopeful types that they are, have begun to fight back by reciting the facts, little as those may matter to Ms., Mrs., Sen., Secretary, First Lady, Presidential...

That letter, led by Rep. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, said a review was "appropriate" given that this money was accepted and not...

The group, Cause of Action, which has subpoenaed thousands of pages of documents from the agency and is still embroiled in litigation with it, says the targeting of conservative groups resulted as much from IRS personnel merely following the instructions laid out in their employee handbook, the Internal Revenue Manual, as from any political bias at the top.

    I’m quite happy being who I am, and I assume you are too. But if you had to be someone else, even for a day, you couldn’t do much better than being a Clinton. Being a Clinton is something we mere mortals can barely imagine. It has to be akin to the way virgins were treated thousands of years ago, up until the point they were sacrificed, that is. Clintons are the non-virgins who are never sacrificed, never damaged, never held accountable. They’re like all the awful kids who toured Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory with Charlie – only they didn’t...

    Little Rock journalist Suzi Parker, author of “Sex in the South: Unbuckling the Bible Belt" and a former contributor to Salon, The Washington Post, The Dallas Morning News and other outlets, recently self-published her first novel, "Echo Ellis: Adventures of a Girl Reporter," about "a Southern reporter living in Bill Clinton's Arkansas who often finds herself in dangerous yet thrilling situations." As Parker put it in a recent interview, "Echo is my alter ego. She has many adventures that I may or may not have had in my life." Check out the noir book trailer above, in which she describes...

    Some of Hillary Clinton’s defenders have taken to saying that voters shouldn’t pay attention to the latest Clinton scandals — the gushing of often undisclosed millions to the Clintons and their organizations by characters seeking official favors — because the charges are just one more in a long series: Whitewater, the Rose law firm billing records, the Buddhist temple fundraising, the Lippo Group. So, the theory goes, because the Clintons have been accused of so many scandalous doings before, people shouldn’t be concerned now about Secretary Clinton’s actions that helped certain donors turn over 20 percent of U.S. uranium reserves...

    CHISINAU, Moldova - Tens of thousands of Moldovans took to the streets on May 3 in the Moldovan capital of Chisinau to demand justice for a banking scandal that saw $1 billion vanish from three of the country’s biggest banks. They are calling for some political leaders in the ruling pro-European coalition to step down for their lack of action over the scandal and poor governance. The participants dispersed peacefully in the central square at midday, chanting slogans such as "Moldova is ours," "We are Moldova," and "The thieves must go to jail." Moldovans are looking for answers after $1...

    David Almasi, executive director of the National Center for Public Policy Research showed up at a stockholder’s meeting for Boeing. He asked Boeing CEO W. James (Jim) McNerney, Jr to turn over email correspondence between Hillary Clinton and her State Department and Boeing. McNerney turned him down flat. This is the second time in a week that a CEO has refused a request from a member of the National Center for Public Policy Research. Last week, GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt also refused to release emails between GE and Hillary Clinton. GE received favorable treatment from the Algerian government because of...

    State Department officials began allowing the Clinton Foundation to review emails the government planned to release to Congress and Freedom of Information Act requesters in January 2014, prompting a process that has delayed the publication of agency records for months, according to the group pursuing the records. [Snip] "On top of the obstruction that is in no small measure criminal in nature — with the hiding, removal and destruction of records by Mrs. Clinton — they are sending these records out to the foundation that are the very subject of these public controversies," said Tom Fitton. Fitton is president of...

    WASHINGTON - There's an old, common sense saying about never putting your eggs in one basket. Yet that's what Democrats have done by overwhelmingly bowing to Hillary Clinton's vaunted ambition to be the next president of the United States. But the polls of the last few weeks suggest that Clinton's coronation campaign, with all of the trappings of pomp and power that preceded it, is coming apart at the seams. The former secretary of State's precipitous decline was first noticed in March in a national CNN poll that found her unfavorable numbers were rising, and perceptions of her as honest...
