    The machete-wielding man who allegedly injured four people in an attack at an Ohio restaurant before he was shot and killed by police was known to the FBI, but not under full scale investigation, law enforcement sources tell ABC News. The suspect, identified as Mohamed Barry, 30, according to Franklin County Coroner Dr. Anahi Ortiz, was in a law enforcement database which includes names potentially related to terrorism, sources said. Being in the database would have flagged him if he came in contact with local authorities. The FBI is investigating the suspect's motive, Columbus Police Chief Kim Jacobs said at...

    The FBI is investigating a machete attack Thursday night that turned a popular, Israeli-owned restaurant in Columbus, Ohio, into a bloodbath, but local police say there is no indication so far of a terror motive. Of the four patrons wounded in the attack at the Nazareth Restaurant and Deli, one was in critical condition before being upgraded to “stable.” The attacker was identified as Mohammad Barry, a law enforcement source told Fox News. "There's nothing to lead us to believe this is anything more than a random attack," Columbus police spokesman Sgt. Rich Weiner told the The Columbus Dispatch. Weiner...

    Sock it to me? Hillary Clinton may be saying publicly that she's "100% confident the FBI email probe will fizzle," but with every new leak that comes out, the public can see that the case for her indictment has been strengthened.In the latest exclusive from Fox News, Catherine Herridge and Pamela K. Browne report that the "top secret" intelligence, recently found on Clinton's server and deemed too damaging to national security to release, passed through at least a dozen of her underlings' email accounts.A U.S. government official close to the FBI investigation told Fox that "the accounts include not only...

    Cliven Bundy, the father of the man who helped start the protest at a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon, was arrested by the FBI late Wednesday night in Portland. Details of the arrest, including charges and location, were not immediately available. The FBI said those details would be released Thursday morning. Reached early Thursday at the Bundy ranch house near Bunkerville, Cliven Bundy's daughter Bailey confirmed that Cliven had been arrested but wouldn't provide details. "That's all we know at this time and we're not commenting tonight," she said. Meanwhile, federal agents closed in on the four remaining militia occupants...

    FBI Director James Comey said Tuesday one of the phones used by the killers in the San Bernardino, California, attacks remains inaccessible to investigators more than two months after 14 people were fatally shot. Testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Comey cited the case as an example of how encryption is affecting counterterrorism efforts. But he said the dilemma of bad guys "going dark" is mostly affecting state and local law enforcement officials who are trying to solve murder, drug and car accident cases. Companies are increasingly making devices such as cellphones with encryption that allows only the people communicating...

    The FBI on Wednesday evening moved in on the last four occupiers at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, the Oregonian newspaper reported. The four armed, anti-government protesters had been indicted last week with 12 others on charges of conspiring to impede federal officers during an armed standoff at the compound. The takeover at Malheur started on Jan. 2 when their leader, Ammon Bundy, and followers, seized buildings at the refuge in a protest against federal control over millions of acres public land in the West.

    Months after the tragic shooting at a health clinic in San Bernardino, FBI agents are still unable to unlock the phone used by one of the attackers, according to new statements by FBI director James Comey. Speaking before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Comey mentioned the case as a prime example of device encryption hindering an investigation. "In San Bernardino, a very important investigation for us, we still have one of those killer's phones that we have not been able to open," Comey told the Committee. "It's been over two months now. We're still working on it."

On Thursday, FBI agents arrested a majority of the town's top officials, including the mayor, mayor pro tempore, city manager, and a current city council member, as well as a former council member, The Washington Post reports. FBI agents also arrested Ngoc Tri Nguyen, an alleged gambling operator, nicknamed "Mr. T."

Ricardo Lopez, Crystal City's mayor, was accused of accepting...

    Loretta Lynch is on the edge of the spotlight, about to be dragged to the center. If the FBI finds sufficient evidence to launch a criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton or one of her top aides for mishandling classified information, Lynch's Justice Department will have to decide whether or not to press ahead. Even if no evidence of wrongdoing is found, Clinton's many critics are unlikely to take the word of an appointee of President Obama's, and will doubt that justice has been served. Already, top Republicans are calling for a special prosecutor to be brought in and evaluate the...

    Hillary Clinton used misleading language in Thursday night's Democratic debate to describe the ongoing FBI investigation into her use of a private email server to conduct official government business while she was secretary of state, according to former senior FBI agents. In the New Hampshire debate with Senator Bernie Sanders, which aired on MSNBC, Clinton told moderator Chuck Todd that nothing would come of the FBI probe, "I am 100 percent confident. This is a security review that was requested. It is being carried out." Not true says Steve Pomerantz, who spent 28 years at the FBI, and rose from...

    In the unfolding political and legal drama surrounding Hillary Clinton and her private server, one name has been conspicuously missing. Bill Clinton. There has been scant mention of the former president's possible role and potential exposure in the server/classified material controversy, which now represents an existential threat to Mrs. Clinton's presidential ambitions. But perhaps his role may be more central that we've been led to believe. Rather than simply focusing on Mrs. Clinton's actions as secretary of state, the FBI investigation may be proceeding along two tracks: his and hers. So far, two areas of focus have been mentioned. One...

The impetus for the gathering was a POLITICO story where Chaffetz, the chairman, of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, was quoted as saying that a pending probe into government record keeping practices would not be "specifically trying to target the secretary, but when she creates her own private email system, she's ensnarled herself.” Presented with the quote before publication, House...

    The FBI is going straight to the source in its investigation of classified emails that crossed Hillary Clinton's personal server, speaking with the intelligence agencies - and in some cases, the individuals - that generated the information, two intelligence sources familiar with the probe told Fox News. Investigators are meeting with the agencies and individuals to determine the classification level in the emails. The step speaks to the diligence with which the bureau is handling the investigation, despite the former secretary of state's claims that the matter boils down to a mere interagency dispute. "This is not merely a difference...

    FBI agents have interrupted what federal prosecutors describe as a planned mass shooting at a Masonic Temple in Milwaukee, it was announced Tuesday. Samy Mohamed Hamzeh, 23, has been charged with possessing machine guns and a silencer. According to the criminal complaint, Hamzeh had been under investigation since September 2015. He originally planned to travel to Jordan to attack Israeli soldiers. He later changed plans to attack the Mason Temple in Milwaukee. Hamzeh was recorded making comments about the planned attack with automatic weapons. "They are all Masonic; they are playing with the world like a game, man, and we...

    Corruption: We know at least 1,340 of Hillary Clinton’s personal emails contain classified material. This was no accident. Someone deliberately moved highly sensitive content from a secure network to her private account. Is that person a criminal? The smoking guns indicating there has been profound misconduct in the handling of State Department email communications have become “a growing arsenal,” we wrote last week. “If a ‘smoking gun’ means catching (Clinton) in a flat lie or putting national security at risk or being unbelievably, if not criminally, negligent in her handing of classified information,” then, we said, at least seven have...

    The FBI "temporarily" halted efforts to process denial appeals on background checks, thereby leaving up to "7,100" Americans in limbo as to whether the federal government will allow them to buy a gun. According to USA Today, FBI Assistant Director Stephen Morris said the halt in processing appeals, which went into effect on January 20, became necessary because the number of Americans buying guns has overwhelmed FBI background check examiners.

    The FBI is ready to indict Hillary Clinton and if its recommendation isn't followed by the U.S. attorney general, the agency's investigators plan to blow the whistle and go public with their findings, former U.S. House Majority leader Tom DeLay tells Newsmax TV. "I have friends that are in the FBI and they tell me they're ready to indict," DeLay said Monday on "the Steve Malzberg Show." "They're ready to recommend an indictment and they also say that if the attorney general does not indict, they're going public."

    It almost seems like old news at this point, but the Hillary Clinton email server story arc continues to dump one damaging headline after another on the head of the presumptive Democrat nominee. We saw the recent revelation that some of the material stashed away in that bathroom closet contained data relating to human intelligence at the highest level. We then heard former Attorney General Michael Mukasey say it’s time to charge her with mishandling classified documents. And yet nothing seems to happen beyond scattered rumors from mostly nameless sources saying that the FBI is busily digging away. Why is...

    **SNIP** Yet, in reporting the story, the Times' Mark Mazzetti took pains to stress: "The government has said that Mrs. Clinton is not a subject of the investigation." Really? Well, to put it in Clintonian terms: It all depends on what the definition of "subject" is. Though you wouldn't know it from the Times, "subject" is a term of art in criminal investigations. It refers to one of the three categories into which prosecutors fit every relevant actor. Subjects are people whose conduct is being scrutinized and who, depending on what evidence turns up, may or may not be charged....
