    EXCLUSIVE: Hillary Clinton’s unorthodox use of a private email account and personal server for government business exploited a loophole in the State Department's FOIA, or Freedom of Information Act, process, according to the findings of the first Inspector General report to stem from her email scandal. Congress asked the Office of Inspector General, the State Department's independent watchdog, to investigate the issue following the revelation that Mrs. Clinton did not use a government email account while secretary of state. Fox News reviewed the 25-page report and its findings before they were made publicly available. The report reads in part: "FOIA...

    WASHINGTON - He no longer travels aboard Air Force One; now former President Jimmy Carter could be restricted to domestic flights. It's not likely to happen, but Rep. Sue Myrick, R-N.C., wants Carter's U.S. passport pulled because he met Thursday with members of Hamas in the Middle East. Hamas is the party of the elected government in the Palestinian territory of Gaza. The State Department lists Hamas as a terrorist group, however, meaning U.S. officials are not to meet with them. Myrick has called for Carter's passport to be removed and for U.S. taxpayer money to be cut off from...

    Kevin Costner has been revealed as the celebrity accused of performing a sex act while having a massage at a prestigious hotel in Scotland, after a tribunal ruled there was not a strong enough reason to keep his name suppressed. The Hollywood star was accused of taking off his towel during the massage at The Old Course Hotel in St Andrews, Fife, in October 2004, exposing himself and then performing a sex act. An earlier legal ruling had prevented his identity being revealed, but the tribunal chairman Nicol Hosie ruled that following widespread newspaper and magazine reports outside Britain, as...

    As the state of South Dakota prepares for a battle over a new law banning virtually all abortions, CNN conducted an interview with a woman who flies in from Minnesota to do abortions at the state's only abortion business, in Sioux Falls. No one in South Dakota will do abortions so Planned Parenthood is forced to bring abortion practitioners in from out of state. Miriam McCreary, a 70 year-old retired abortion practitioner is one of four the abortion business brings in every Saturday to perform more than a dozen abortions each week. "There is quite a need for somebody to...

    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- An attorney for the widow of a middle school teacher gunned down by a student argued before an appellate court Tuesday that the gun distributor was negligent in selling the cheap weapon and should be held liable.Attorney Edna Caruso said federal officials told Valor Corp. for years that its .25-caliber Raven handgun was frequently used in crimes and that the company had a legal responsibility to make the weapons safer."Here we have a distributor that is known to distribute crime guns. It's been warned for years and years and years," Caruso said. "It says, 'I...

    I never felt any longing to go to Orlando, Florida. What I felt, in traveling south to volunteer for the campaign of George W. Bush, was an obligation. Let me explain by first saying something about the critics of our president. A great many of them like to laugh at George Bush for not reading books and for being uninterested in visiting other countries. But a lot of those same people are guilty of the opposite offense. They prefer to read books and travel abroad rather than actually getting to know their own country face to face. These critics do...

    Filmmaker Michael Moore responded Wednesday to the Michigan Republican Party's request that he be prosecuted for offering underwear and food to college students in exchange for their promise to vote. "It's ironic that Republicans have no problem with allowing assault weapons out on our streets, yet they don't want to put clean underwear in the hands of our slacker youth," Moore said in a statement. "The Republicans seem more interested in locking me up for trying to encourage people to participate in our democracy than locking up bin Laden for his attacks on our democracy." Moore said Republicans missed the...

    Michigan prosecutors won't bring charges against filmmaker Michael Moore who state Republicans say broke the law when he offered new underwear and food to young people who promised to vote in the presidential election. On Tuesday, the Michigan GOP asked prosecutors in counties where Moore had spoken to bring charges against him. State law prohibits offering something of value in exchange for agreeing to vote. "It's ironic that Republicans have no problem with allowing assault weapons out on our streets, yet they don't want to put clean underwear in the hands of our slacker youth," Moore said, according to the...

    CARMEL — It's been written that death is a career move. But for William Arksey, it was simply a way to avoid arrest. Arksey, 53, formerly of Danbury, Conn., pleaded guilty yesterday in Putnam County Court to second-degree forgery, a felony, after admitting he filed his own death certificate to avoid arrest for skipping out on a misdemeanor drunken-driving charge in 1997. It was only after Arksey recently served time in the Pennsylvania prison system that Putnam County authorities learned that the report of his demise — specifically, his death certificate — was, in fact, greatly exaggerated. Arksey, who then...
