    Billionaire businessman Donald Trump on Saturday seized on new reports that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is under criminal investigation for her private email server, warning that “bad things have to happen.” “I don’t know how a person with that cloud over their head can actually be running for president,” Trump told a rally in Iowa. “If the prosecutors are honorable, if they’re fair, they’re just, sadly, bad things have to happen because what she did is very serious and very criminal,” he said.

    A federal judge is lashing out at the State Department for delaying for years in providing responses to Associated Press Freedom of Information Act requests seeking records about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's schedules and her top staffers. At a contentious hearing last week, U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon demanded explanations for why some of the AP's requests received no reply for four years or more before the wire service filed suit in March. Leon said he was determined to establish "what has been going on in the State Department for four years dragging their feet, not addressing...

    Hillary Clinton, the front-running presidential candidate who doesn't do interviews, finally sat down with CNN on Tuesday and said, "People should and do trust me." New York Times columnist Bill Safire must be rolling in his grave. A 1996 essay of his, "Blizzard of Lies," began, "Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our first lady — a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation — is a congenital liar."

    (Washington, DC ) – Judicial Watch announced today that newly revealed testimony from the Obama State Department under court order directly ties Hillary Clinton, for the first time, to the now-debunked Benghazi talking points used by United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice to claim that the attack was the result of a “spontaneous protest” gone awry. The Obama administration also sent false talking points about the attack to Congress. The State Department is refusing to divulge the contents of the email, citing a discretionary “deliberative process” privilege. Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information (FOIA) lawsuit in July 2014 seeking records...

The Obama administration knew al-Qaeda was planning an attack in Benghazi to “kill as many Americans as possible” ten days in advance. Judicial Watch reported: Judicial Watch announced today that it obtained more than 100 pages of previously classified “Secret” documents from the Department of Defense (DOD)and the Department of State revealing that DOD almost immediately reported that the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was committed by the al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood-linked “Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman” (BCOAR),...

    At the time he was Obama's WH advisor (and chief political strategist), David Axelrod said he was unaware Hillary conducted official State Dept business from an unauthorized, private server. But emails released Tuesday evening by the State Dept include his request for Hillary's private email address--and suggest he had every reason to know and raises questions about what else he knew. Asked last month in an interview whether he knew anything about Clinton's "homebrew" system when they worked together in the Obama administration, Axelrod responded, "I didn't know." However, correspondences from 2009 show that Axelrod may have had reason to...

    The State Department on Tuesday released 3,000 pages of emails from the private server former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used while in office. The correspondence, released online, covers March through December 2009. Among the messages, on July 11, 2009, Clinton received an email from "Jimmy" — presumably former President Jimmy Carter — titled "N. Korea.” The message seems to be about freeing journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee, who were charged and held with illegal passage into the Stalinist state. It read: "Hillary: As I explained to you on the phone, I don´t think it is appropriate to tell...

    There are no sure things in politics, but Hillary Clinton is the closest thing to a sure thing to become the Democrats’ candidate for president in 2016. This is one of the painful but inescapable signs of our time. There is nothing in her history that would qualify her for the presidency, and much that should disqualify her. What is even more painful is that none of that matters politically. Many people simply want “a woman” to be president, and Hillary is the best-known woman in politics, though by no means the best qualified. What is Hillary’s history? In the...

The message was only recently provided by Blumenthal to the congressional panel investigating the Benghazi terrorist attacks, despite Clinton’s previous assurance that she had turned over “all” her correspondence pertaining to Libya. “First, brava! This is a historic moment and you will be credited for realizing it,” he wrote in the August 22, 2011 memo to Clinton. “When Qaddafi himself is...

Former CIA Operations and Intelligence Analyist, Officer, Clare Lozez, says that “America has switched sides in the war on terror under Barack Obama.” She said the global war on terror had been an effort to “stay free of Sharia,” or repressive Islamic law, until the Obama administration began siding with such jihadist groups as the Muslim...

That is the logical conclusion drawn by investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson who, while at CBS, fought to break stories exposing the Obama administration’s lies on “phony” scandals from Fast and Furious to Benghazi and for her efforts had her computer hacked and monitored, likely by administration operatives concerned by her revelations and curious about her sources. Attkisson said on NewsmaxTV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show” recently that she thought it was a common sense conclusion that Hillary Clinton erased the contents of her personal email server, created and used in violation of the National Records...

Her correspondent was Philippe Reines, a longtime aide to Hillary Clinton who had asked how the “hearings”were going (perhaps meaning “briefings”?) The classified hearings were on the 15th and 16th. Of the newly released batch of Hillary Clinton emails, this one seems to be the most significant.

    If Congress really wants to get to the bottom of Hillary Clinton’s missing Benghazi and pay-to-play emails, it should call her consigliere Cheryl D. Mills to testify — under oath, and under the klieg lights. A hearing featuring Clinton will be a wasted show trial with a lot of political grandstanding. But Mills, who served as the former secretary of state’s chief of staff and counselor, knows where the bodies are buried. After all, Hillary tasked her with “identifying and preserving all emails that could potentially be federal records.”

But Kendall said Clinton would testify only for one session. The committee chairman, GOP Rep.

For the woman who is supposedly the world’s most powerful feminist, her sense of victimhood remains surprisingly strong. That’s never been more true than in her new book, Hard Choices, which points out that she – not the four men who died in Benghazi, Libya, on the night of September 11, 2012 – is the victim. The Clinton camp reportedly leaked the 34-page Benghazi chapter of Hillary’s latest tome to favored outlet Politico. The...

    When it was announced that Hillary Clinton was being asked to testify behind closed doors to Trey Gowdy’s committee investigating Benghazi, I assumed the veteran prosecutor had a strategy. The testimony will be under oath and taken down by a stenographer, so it will be on the record, but the American people will not be watching. Perhaps the idea is to use the more relaxed environment to get Mrs. Clinton to open up? That hardly seems likely. More plausible is the notion that she will not have at her disposal demagogic tactics, such as her famous rant, “What difference, at...

    She can’t help herself. Hillary Clinton is addicted to deception. The news that she used an iPad as well as BlackBerry demolishes her already-ridiculous claim that she set up a private e-mail server so she would only need to carry one gadget as secretary of state. At a March 10 press conference, Clinton put it this way: “I thought using one device would be simpler, and, obviously, it hasn’t worked out that way. Looking back, it would have been probably . . . smarter to have used two devices.” Those comments, her first public ones on the scandal, are now...

Clinton has proven to be a polarizing figure, especially after revelations that she used a personal email address and server to conduct public business when she served as secretary of state. Her actions stirred further criticism when it was revealed last last week that she had wiped the server clean, making it supposedly impossible for the House Benghazi Committee or anyone else...

    Hillary Clinton comes off as confused, myopic and downright clueless in a number of email exchanges that have made headlines thanks to recent inquiries from a number of news outlets. In one exchange, brought to light after the AP released emails it obtained through a FOIA request, Clinton doesn’t know that she’s supposed to be talking with her adviser, Huma Abedin, about a Pakistani-Taliban over the remains of a crashed U.S. drone. Rather, Clinton believes she’s discussing interior furnishings. Here’s the relevant portion of that exchange. It’s of note that Clinton refutes her own post-scandal assertions that she only used...

    The emails Clinton says she deleted from her personal server may still be recoverable. As House Republican leaders weigh whether to try to force former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to hand over her personal email server, experts say the messages she deleted from it — or at least portions of them — can almost certainly be recovered. Half a dozen computer forensics experts interviewed by POLITICO said remnants of Clinton’s emails likely still exist on the server, although retrieving them could be time intensive and expensive.

    The Benghazi investigative committee on Tuesday formally requested former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton give a transcribed interview detailing her decision-making in determining which emails she turned over to the government and why she wiped her email server clean. Chairman Trey Gowdy said Mrs. Clinton’s “unique arrangement with herself” — in which she claimed complete control of government business emails — needs to be explained, and nobody other than Mrs. Clinton can do that. The interview would be behind closed doors, but would be part of the committee investigation’s record. A public hearing would follow eventually, once the select...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton’s mixture of personal and work email once resulted in a reply to a crashed drone story with inquiries about home decorations. Files obtained by The Associated Press show that Mrs. Clinton accidentally sent adviser Huma Abedin questions about the attractiveness of shelving units in response to a drone crash in Pakistan. “I like the idea of these. How high are they? What would the bench be made of? And I’d prefer two shelves or attractive boxes/baskets/ conmtainers (sic) on one. What do you think?” Mrs. Clinton wrote, AP reported Tuesday. When Mrs. Abedin then asked if she...

    There must have been "very, very bad or embarrassing" things on Hillary Clinton's personal email server that was wiped clean – including information on the deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. outpost in Benghazi, Libya, says former CBC News investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson. In an interview on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV on Monday, Attkisson said it was just "common sense" that the deleted data was likely worse than the firestorm created by its deletion. "In my experience, there must've been some very, very bad or embarrassing things on there, because it appears as if she'd rather take...

    In what her backers are calling the “perfect checkmate” move, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has sought to blunt all further inquiries into her activities while at the Department of State by completely reformatting the server used for her email correspondence while she was in office. “Those who are trying to prove that I’m guilty of violating the law will have to do it without access to documents formerly on my own private server,” Clinton announced. “They may grouse that since I used this server for all my official correspondence as Secretary of State that I had no right...

    Friday’s bombshell revelation that Hillary Clinton’s private email server has been scrubbed of all of the emails she sent as secretary of state has raised questions over the timeline of that erasure.A review of her limited statements on the scandal suggests that it could have occurred as recently as this month.Clinton’s attorney, David Kendall, sent a letter to the House Select Committee on Benghazi on Friday in response to its subpoena of Clinton’s emails and its request to inspect her server, which was registered to her Chappaqua, N.Y. home.Kendall’s letter prompted South Carolina Rep.
