    Hillary Clinton repeatedly used unsecured phones to contact four of her lesbian lovers — sparking a bombshell scandal that could doom her bid for the White House, The National ENQUIRER has learned in a blockbuster world exclusive! “It is my understanding that Hillary was careless — very careless,” spilled one top Beltway insider. “What she wants to do in her own bedroom is her own business. But she didn’t take the necessary steps to keep her romps with other women secret, and now it’s going to explode in front of every American voter!”

    Huma Abedin, a longtime aide to Hillary Clinton, nearly began sobbing at the thought of Clinton carrying her own bags, according to a report published on Thursday. "Abedin took her duties so seriously ... that when she learned that Clinton had once carried her own bag up a flight of stairs in her aide's absence, Abedin nearly burst into tears," an unnamed source said for the story in Newsweek.Abedin began working for Clinton as a White House intern in 1996, the same year that former intern Monica Lewinsky began working for President Bill Clinton. However, her career took a different...

    Hillary Clinton's closest aide Huma Abedin is so devoted to her boss that she almost sobbed upon learning Clinton had to carry her own bag, a Newsweek profile revealed Thursday. "Abedin took her duties so seriously, the source recalled, that when she learned that Clinton had once carried her own bag up a flight of stairs in her aide's absence, Abedin nearly burst into tears," Newsweek reported. The same source said that Clinton once snapped her fingers and said "Gum" to Abedin. "A lot of times, Hillary would snap her fingers and go, 'Gum.' And Huma would fetch it," the...

    The State Department has agreed to a conservative legal group’s request to question several current and former government officials about the creation of Hillary Clinton’s private email system. The agreement filed late Friday with the U.S. District Court in Washington comes after a judge consented to allow the group Judicial Watch “limited discovery” to probe why Clinton relied on an email server in her New York home during her tenure as secretary of state. Questions about the email system have bedeviled Clinton during her run for the Democratic presidential nomination. If Judge Emmet G. Sullivan approves of Friday’s agreement, lawyers...

    Last night John covered the last (or perhaps just the latest if more turn up) batch of released emails from Hillary Clinton’s bathroom closet server. As usual, the trove of what we got wasn’t nearly as interesting as what we didn’t get, specifically the Top Secret material and redacted portions of the sensitive ones. To begin digging into the pile, it’s unclear if there’s anything really “new” here which we didn’t already know.

    Members of the media—especially its liberal branch—like to brag about their tough coverage of Hillary’s e-mail scandal. And it’s true that over the past several months, some reporters have asked Hillary far sharper questions about her use of a private e-mail server than any query she faced at last week’s two-hour Cinderella-and-the-four–dwarfs Democratic debate. But what these liberal reporters don’t say is that they’ve used the excuse of their e-mail focus to give Hillary a free ride on everything else that she’s done that is either unethical or illegal. In fact, as Hillary prepares to testify this week before the...

    While working as a high-level aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin received a curious waiver to work in the private sector simultaneously — and went to work for a firm politically connected to the Clintons and their foundation, Teneo. The waiver itself is under investigation by the Senate Judiciary Committee, a probe that may take on more importance as the FBI succeeds in uncovering more e-mail from Hillary’s server. Politico’s Rachel Bade may have found a quo if not a quid in Abedin’s communications: A spring 2012 email to Hillary Clinton’s top State Department aide, Huma...

    They say it’s not the crime, but the coverup. But sometimes it’s the crime and the coverup. Hillary Clinton’s metastasizing email scandal is beginning to look more and more like a case of both. Back in the seventies, Charles Colson of Watergate fame boasted he would “walk over my own grandmother” to assure the election of Richard Nixon. Hillary Clinton — who cut her teeth on the very Watergate investigation before she was “let go” by the House Judiciary Committee under disputed circumstances — now may have to demand the same kind of loyalty from longtime “girl Friday” Huma...

Huma Abedin, who has been at Mrs. Clinton’s side as her personal assistant — or “body woman” — since the 2008 presidential race, has come under scrutiny for pocketing a $33,000 payout from the State Department for unused leave and using her simultaneous employment inside and outside of government to “deliver favors” to Clinton cronies.

The trip to Iowa, where a third-place finish in 2008 ultimately led to the collapse of her presidential aspirations, illustrates what aides say is a commitment to not take anything for granted in her second bid for the White House, even though she dominates the likely Democratic field in 2016.

The Democratic senator said what the Bush administration touts as an "ownership society" really is an "on your own" society that has widened the gap between rich and poor. "I prefer a 'we're all in it together' society," she said. "I believe our government can once again work for all Americans. It can promote the great American tradition of opportunity for all and special privileges for none."...

    Yesterday, Rosie's chief writer, Janette Barber, was allegedly escorted from the building after she was caught drawing moustaches on photographs of Hasselbeck that hang in the "View" studios. The Post's Adam Buckman reports ABC confirmed in a statement only that "photographs at 'The View's' offices were defaced. Rosie O'Donnell was not in the building. ABC Legal and Human Resources are investigating the matter." Barber is an old friend of O'Donnell who worked with her years ago on "The Rosie O'Donnell Show." There were also rumors O'Donnell was so angry after her argument with Hasselbeck that she trashed her dressing room,...

    Media: Crackpot 9/11 conspiracy theories are usually deemed beneath the dignity of network television. With Rosie O'Donnell now promoting the fringe, how embarrassed are ABC and Barbara Walters willing to be? Since joining ABC's all-female talk show "The View" last year, comedienne and film star O'Donnell has exchanged insults with Donald Trump, and been labeled a bigot by Catholic League president William Donohue for what he called her "relentless and profoundly ignorant attacks on the Catholic Church and its teachings." According to O'Donnell "radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam." Famed interviewer Walters, co-host and co-owner of "The...

    Soucces at CBS and ABC
    Rosie O’Donnell To Be Fired From “View” My CBS insiders just had "too many cocktails for a Tuesday night" with ABC insiders. Word on West 66th Street (ABC) is that Barbara Walters, who has life or death decision authority for “The View,” has had it with Uber-Dyke Rosie O’Donnell and has given ultimatum to the suits at ABC. There was a recent makeup room spat, but that is just latest in the Battle of the Broads. Other heavy battles between each woman's supporters have not been reported, but there have reportely been vicious behind-the-secenes cat fights. (Actually, other than being...

    ACTOR Lily Tomlin has criticised the United States and Australian governments over their opposition to same-sex marriage, saying everyone should have the right to wed. The openly-gay Hollywood veteran, 66, has been with her female partner, Jane Wagner, a writer and producer, for 35 years. While she and Wagner have no plans to marry, Tomlin feels all people should have the choice. US President George W Bush and Australian Prime Minister John Howard have both spoken out against same-sex marriage, and the Federal Government recently quashed ACT legislation allowing homosexuals to create civil unions. "I am happy for anybody who...

    A STUDENT being asked to remove a T-shirt with a lesbian slogan has sparked a protest at a school in Melbourne's northwest. About 30 students at Strathmore Secondary College last week rallied behind Year 12 classmate Stephanie, 17, after she was told by teachers to change out of the T-shirt for school photos. Stephanie, who did not want her surname published, said she had worn a T-shirt bearing the slogan "Nobody knows I'm a lesbian" to school on several occasions without concerns being raised by staff or fellow students. "I've had it for ages," she said. But she said things...

    When state Sen. Jennifer Veiga made the agonizing decision to come out as Colorado's first openly gay lawmaker, she turned to the Gay and Lesbian Leadership Institute for strategic advice. And when Beth Sebian signed on to help an openly gay candidate for mayor of Brockton, Mass., she attended the institute's campaign seminar and learned what to do if an opponent tries to make an issue of homosexuality. Veiga credits the institute with helping her win re-election in 2002 after she went public; Sebian says the group is helping her avoid mistakes in Jass Stewart's September primary campaign. The 14-year-old...

    NEW YORK, May 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Maureen Dowd, following the success of her acclaimed New York Times bestselling book, Bushworld, has turned her lapidary prose and wicked wit to a topic even more incendiary than presidential politics: sexual politics.
