    It was a long wait. Today’s blockbuster report from the Associated Press about Hillary Clinton’s meetings with Clinton Foundation donors during her time as Secretary of State contained the following nugget: “The AP sought Clinton’s calendar and schedules three years ago, but delays led the AP to sue the State Department last year in federal court for those materials and other records.”

    Shortly after Hillary Clinton left the Obama administration, the State Department quietly took steps to purchase real estate in Nigeria from a firm whose parent company is owned by a major donor to the Clinton Foundation, records obtained by Fox News show. On March 20, 2013, William P. Franklin, an “international realty specialist” at the State Department, emailed Mary E. Davis, an American diplomat stationed in Africa, instructing her to “put on Post letterhead” an “expression of interest” by the department in purchasing property at Eko Atlantic, a massive real estate development off the coast of Lagos. Franklin further instructed...

    First he was Carlos Danger. Now - in yet another sexting scandal — he's a randy "mongoose." Sext fiend Anthony Weiner boasted of his animal prowess - claiming he was "deceptively strong . . . like a mongoose" - and gave his cellphone number to a college student during a flirty, private online chat on a recent trip to Los Angeles, The Post has learned. But the joke was on the horndog pol, whose wife, Huma Abedin, is a top aide and close confidante of Hillary Clinton. The target of his online affection was really a dude.

    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...

    A leading U.S. general pressured his intelligence analysts into playing down the ISIS and al Qaeda threats, according to a congressional task force. A House Republican task force has found that officials from the U.S. military’s Central Command altered intelligence reports to portray the U.S. fight against ISIS and al Qaeda in a more positive light than lower-level analysts believed was warranted by the facts on the ground, three officials familiar with the task force’s findings told The Daily Beast. A roughly 10-page report on the controversy is expected to be released by the end of next week, two officials...

The judge said prison was necessary because of the seriousness of the crime.

    If Hillary Clinton wins the presidency, Bill Clinton will not become a regular at cabinet meetings, his wife's advisers say. He will not be invited into the Situation Room. He will step away from his family's foundation work and may not even have an office in the West Wing, given the undesirable optics of a former president and husband looking over the shoulder of the first female commander in chief. But the steps Clinton aides are planning to shape his new life do little to address a potentially thornier problem: Historically, when Mr. Clinton does not have a job to...

    It has always been taken for granted that presidents appoint wealthy donors to commissions, ambassadorships, and other honors. But we have never before seen evidence of the way the transactions are carried out. However, thanks to Wikileaks, we have an actual spreadsheet listing donors and possible purchases of office being circulated among DNC officials. Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller has the story. The spreadsheet — which was accompanied by emails sent between officials with the DNC’s finance team — contains 23 names of little-known corporate executives and professional fundraisers who have donated to the committee and various Democratic political...

President Enrique Pena Nieto had reacted crossly at the time to those who criticized the purchase, saying there were "countless versions and falsehoods" surrounding the story. First lady Angelica Rivera also reacted angrily at the time, denying she had done anything wrong. She claimed she was using money she earned during her career as an actress.

Why does Congress not investigate people like Blumenthol, who received and re-transmitted that Top Secret material? Plenty of precedence for such charges. We all know the reason that the FBI will not, that the DOJ prosecutors would not prosecute these cases. Buy why not Congress?

    Since ABC's Scandal's winter finale in November ended with lead Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) heartlessly killing her unborn baby to the tune of the Christmas hymn "Silent Night," the abortion has not been mentioned on the show. In fact, creator Shonda Rhimes was undecided about if she would bring it up again. When asked when President Fitzgerald Grant would find out Olivia aborted their baby, Rhimes responded, "My question is, does he have to? A woman made a choice about her body that she legally has the right to make. I haven’t actually decided, but I wonder sometimes." Well, Fitz...

    If you ever want to know what liberal Hollywood really thinks, just watch a Shonda Rhimes show. In about every other episode she has characters going off on thinly veiled, self-righteous liberal monologues. Tonight, ABC’s Scandal had two separate characters rant about "white men" and "country people." For those who aren’t unfamiliar with Scandal, GOP presidential primary candidate Hollis Doyle (Gregg Henry) is a character intended to spoof Donald Trump. The similarities in this particular show are endless: The opposing campaigns despair that “no matter what he does America loves him,” an ex-wife claims he raped her, he’s asked to...

    Heidi Cruz is silent no more. Talking to Fox News' Megyn Kelly Tuesday night, the wife of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz spoke out for the first time about the National Enquirer story alleging her husband engaged in affairs with five different women. In the interview, Mrs. Cruz called the report "garbage" and accused Donald Trump of planting the story. "It's garbage. It's just garbage," she said on "The Kelly File." "This is another example of Donald Trump engaging in the politics of personal destruction, using his henchmen to go out and try to destroy others when he is losing. And...

    In an interview with two Philadelphia newspapers Monday, Hillary Clinton again refused to release the transcripts to her pricy Wall Street speeches but insisted that she was the most transparent candidate for president. "Well, I can only say this: let's make sure everybody is already as transparent as I," Clinton said when asked whether her refusal to release the transcripts signaled that she had "something to hide." Clinton avoided discussing the transcripts and instead focused on the "30 years" worth of tax returns that she had released. Seeing as rival Bernie Sanders has yet to release his tax returns, Clinton...

    After several years of incarceration in his native Romania, Marcel Lazar Lehel, aka Guccifer, has finally arrived this week in Alexandria, Virginia, to face nine charges of computer hacking. Guccifer, it will be recalled, is the one who revealed the presence of Hillary Clinton's private server through his hacking of Sidney Blumenthal's email account. Catherine Herridge and Pamela K. Browne of Fox point out the interesting timing of his extradition: Romanian media have reported the [FBI] request came on or about Dec. 29, 2015. That would have been shortly after the intelligence community's identification of emails beyond "top secret" on...

    Ted Cruz breathes a huge sigh of relief, for now. Sibley has another plan. Chief Justixe Roberts made his decision late yesterday: Sibley's application was directed to Chief Justice John Roberts, the justice assigned to emergency appeals from the Washington, D.C. area. Roberts denied it without seeking a response from any other party, a sign of how little merit Roberts found in the application. Undeterrred, Sibley writes on his blog that he will now appeal to Clarence Thomas: Yesterday, Chief Justice Roberts denied my Application to be relieved from the Restraining Order which prohibits me from releasing any of the...

    Former law enforcement and intelligence officials contacted by TheDCNF agree if there is wrongdoing, it is likely prosecutors will focus on the classified documents. The most serious charges are felonies cited in Title 18 of the U.S. Code of the Espionage Act in sections 793, 798 and 1001. Experts contacted by TheDCNF say these could serve as the foundation for any criminal prosecution of Clinton or her aides. [Snip] Clinton aides Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin and Jacob Sullivan may be very vulnerable to charges. Waurishuk told TheDCNF "Staff aides like Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, etc. had absolutely 'zero' reason to...

    These questions, if answered honestly, would most likely hand the Democratic nomination to Bernie Sanders What was the political utility in owning a private server and never using a State.gov email address? Were all 31,830 deleted private emails about yoga? Why didn’t you know that intelligence could be retroactively classified? Why did you use a Blackberry that wasn’t approved by the NSA? What did you say to Bryan Pagliano? Why were 22 Top Secret emails on a private server? Was any information about the Clinton Foundation mingled with State Department documents? Did President Obama or his staff express any reservations...

    Alabama lawmakers moved Tuesday to impeach their governor nearly two weeks after his squeaky clean reputation was wrecked by allegations that he and a top aide had an adulterous affair. "We're looking at this governor who has essentially betrayed the trust of the people of Alabama," State Rep. Ed Henry said. "This is about the actions and lies that have caused us some doubts about his leadership."
