  • Whoa: One of every 20 Hillary e-mails contained classified information

    Oh, and the FBI can't find two months' worth of them. A whole new batch of Hillary’s e-mails were released on Wednesday by a State Department kicking and screaming, but under orders from a federal judge to follow the law. And in case you’re still buying Hillary’s incredible assertion that she never sent or received a single bit of classified information in four years as Secretary of State, the Washington Times has the early reviews on what was found: More than 5 percent of the latest batch of emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, released Wednesday, contain...

    WASHINGTON — Looking back, John C. Kiriakou admits he should have known better. But when the F.B.I. called him a year ago and invited him to stop by and “help us with a case,” he did not hesitate. Only an hour into what began as a relaxed chat with the two agents — the younger one who traded Pittsburgh Steelers talk with him and the senior investigator with the droopy eye — did he begin to realize just who was the target of their investigation. On Jan. 25, Mr. Kiriakou is scheduled to be sentenced to 30 months in prison...

    To hear FBI Director James Comey tell it, strong encryption stops law enforcement dead in its tracks by letting terrorists, kidnappers and rapists communicate in complete secrecy. But that’s just not true. In the rare cases in which an investigation may initially appear to be blocked by encryption — and so far, the FBI has yet to identify a single one — the government has a Plan B: it’s called hacking.

    Some years ago, in an effort to avoid prosecution, Mafia boss Vincent “Vinnie the Chin” Gigante donned a bathrobe and wandered the streets of Little Italy and Greenwich Village posing as a demented old man. I wonder if Hillary Clinton is getting fitted for just such a bathrobe and starts wandering the lanes of Chappaqua in Westchester to avoid prosecution herself. For years I’ve saved lots of time by considering every word she says a lie, and her story about her emails and email server proves my point. Everything she said about the emails has come apart and now there...

    Short man robs bank in supermarket FALLBROOK, Calif. — A diminutive man in sunglasses robbed a North County supermarket banking desk Friday, authorities reported. The thief, who appeared to be in his early 30s, handed a demand note to a teller at the U.S. Bank office at the Albertsons store in the 1100 block of South Mission Road in Fallbrook shortly after 10 a.m., according to the FBI. The bandit fled with an undisclosed amount of money. Witnesses described him as a roughly 5-foot-4-inch, 110-pound white man with short brown hair, freckles and protruding ears.

    The next question in the Hillary Clinton email matter is who will force the FBI to release any documents it may have retrieved from the 2016 presidential candidate's homemade server — Congress or the courts? The answer: A federal judge may decide to get aggressive and order the law enforcement agency to turn over any newly discovered records or at least preserve them pending further court action. But don't expect congressional subpoenas to fly — or FBI director James Comey to get hauled to Capitol Hill anytime soon. Key congressional committees investigating Clinton’s emails argue that the courts are better...

    The FBI is being accused of forming a wall around Hillary Clinton over the Clintonemail server. The latest battle happened in court yesterday when the FBI flat-out said no to the State Department on what information could be found on the email server, citing federal policy. “At this time, consistent with long-standing Department of Justice and FBI policy, we can neither confirm nor deny the existence of any ongoing investigation, nor are we in a position to provide additional information at this time.” This shouldn’t be surprising because law enforcement tends to be pretty protective into what they’re investigating....

    The FBI refused to cooperate Monday with a court-ordered inquiry into former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s email server, telling the State Department that they won’t even confirm they are investigating the matter themselves, much less willing to tell the rest of the government what’s going on. Judge Emmet G. Sullivan had ordered the State Department to talk with the FBI and see what sort of information could be recovered from Mrs. Clinton’s email server, which her lawyer has said she turned over to the Justice Department over the summer. The FBI’s refusal, however, leaves things muddled. “At this...

Local media reports indicate the latest apparent acts of vandalism occurred on Monday night when fiber lines were accessed via a manhole and severed at two locations in Livermore, Calif., which is across the bay and about 40 miles inland from San Francisco. The FBI is also looking into the matter. Earlier this summer, Special Agent Greg Wuthrich said, “Anyone who may have been in these...

    The Justice Department issued new guidance to its prosecutors on Wednesday, aimed at encouraging more white-collar criminal cases against corporate executives. The new policies come amid persistent criticism that the Justice Department, even while negotiating multi-billion-dollar settlements with large banks, has not been aggressive in prosecuting individuals for financial misconduct—including after the mortgage crisis that devastated the U.S. economy. The policy changes were outlined in a memo issued to Justice Department attorneys and to the FBI, and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates was expected to discuss the issue in a speech Thursday at New York University’s law school. Though it’s...

In response to a Freedom of Information Act request in 2012, the FBI said its Special Events Management unit has been maintaining files on attendees of the alternative lifestyle festival, who are known as “burners,” in an attempt to “aid in the prevention of terrorist activities and intelligence collection.” However, much of the FBI’s 16-page response to the FOIA request is heavily redacted, the...

That being said, the whole situation is a total snooze that is only interesting to the buzzards in the press, Clinton and her allies say. “Nobody talks to me about it other than you guys,” Clinton said at the end of a press conference that addressed the scandal. “It’s not anything that people talk...

    The "extremely serious" investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while she served as secretary of state is being led by an FBI "A-team," an intelligence source told Fox News. The source said the investigation is centered around 18 US Code 793, a section of the Espionage Act related to gathering and transmitting national-defense information. Two emails reportedly found on Clinton's server from 2009 and 2011 contained information regarded as "Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information," one of the highest levels of classification. The two emails were drawn out of a batch of 40 randomly selected from about 30,000...

    Amman, Jordan — Hacker-activists across the world have launched an online war against the so-called Islamic State, targeting the web-savvy jihadists’ vast Internet network of supporters and suspected sleeper cells. But bureaucracy at a wary FBI and stringent US laws against hacking are slowing these efforts to take down the IS web forums and social media accounts, experts and analysts say. As a result, they say, the jihadists are opting to base their web operations on US-hosted sites in order to take advantage of US legal protections. Various groups of anonymous citizen hackers are taking on the jihadists, including Ghost...

    A group calling itself the Islamic State hacking division has published the details of 1,400 mostly US military and government personnel, urging supporters to attack those listed. The spreadsheet, published online on Wednesday, exposes names, email addresses, phone numbers and passwords. Those listed include members of the marine corps, Nasa, the state department, air force and FBI. Supporters of Isis on Twitter seized on the breach, posting personal details of soldiers and government staffers and encouraging lone wolves to “act and kill”. A person claiming to speak for the group told the Guardian the information was obtained from military and...

Clinton said yesterday that had directed her aides to turn over her personal email server to the Department of Justice following a report that it contained top secret emails. reported: Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said two emails that traversed Clinton's personal system were deemed "Top Secret, Sensitive Compartmented Information" — a rating that is among the government's highest classifications. Grassley said McCullough had reported the new details about the higher classification to Congress on Tuesday. The State Department...

    One of the men charged in the murder of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry pleaded guilty to one count of murder, Monday morning. Once a potential candidate for the death penalty after the murder of the agent, the drawn up plea deal now states that the U.S. and the defendant will ask for 360 months imprisonment, with credit for time served since his arrest in October 2012. The Justice Department indicted Rosario Rafael Burboa Alvarez last summer in connection with the killing. Alvarez was identified as the recruiter for the rip-off crew that ran into Terry's elite BORTAC unit...

    Now what? Most people involved with a criminal investigation would have little choice but to simply turn over information requested by the Justice Department. It’s not like you could drag your feet, make counterdemands, claim publicly to have cooperated when in fact you had done no such thing . . . who do you think you are? A Clinton? You know the heat is getting serious when a Clinton actually does turn over information requested by investigators, although the mere fact that this happened makes you wonder what we’re not being told. Last night Hillary’s team announced that she will,...

    People who “voluntarily” relinquish” documents they shouldn’t have in the first place should always remain suspect Only the hopelessly gullible would believe that Hillary Clinton has volunteered to willingly surrender her private email server to “authorities”. Mainstream media reporting the latest on the Hillary email controversy would have been far more honest and accurate had they reported that Clinton handed over her private email server only after all it contained had been scrubbed, scoured, whitewashed and edited. Hillary would NEVER have turned over to authorities anything that would implicate her signature cunning and dishonesty. “Hillary Clinton agreed to turn over...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The FBI has taken possession of thumb drives containing Hillary Clinton's emails, some of which have been deemed to contain highly sensitive classified information, according to a U.S. official briefed on the matter. The official was not authorized to be quoted publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. Clinton's lawyer, David Kendall, turned over the emails after the FBI determined that he could not remain in possession of the classified information, the official said. The State Department previously had said it was comfortable with Kendall keeping the emails at his Washington law office.
  • FBI Now Refers Some Potential Terror Suspects To Counseling

    The FBI is now referring some potential terror suspects to counseling in a new strategy to defeat homegrown Islamic State supporters. Rather than lock up everyone in the U.S. suspected of potential terrorist activity, the FBI will refer up to 10 percent of the thousands of people under investigation to counseling, reported The Wall Street Journal. Proponents of the plan told TheWSJ it will ease the FBI’s investigative burden, and provide a possible “off ramp” from radicalization for some of the thousands of people in the U.S. interested in ISIS, especially minors.
  • The FBI’s probe of Hillary Clinton is reportedly a criminal probe

    The FBI’s probe into Hillary Clinton’s email server security is reportedly a criminal probe. A source told the New York Post it’s definitely a criminal probe and isn’t sure why the feds are saying it’s not. The DOJ and FBI can conduct civil investigations in very limited circumstances. In this case, a security violation would lead to criminal charges. Maybe DOJ is trying to protect her campaign. This is kind of a “duh factor” because why else would the FBI be investigating the server? It certainly wasn’t to see if Clinton was trading recipes with Huma Abedin. Unless, of...

    The FBI investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s unsecured e-mail account is not just a fact-finding venture — it’s a criminal probe, sources told The Post on Wednesday. The feds are investigating to what extent Clinton relied on her home server and other private devices to send and store classified documents, according to a federal source with knowledge of the inquiry. “It’s definitely a criminal probe,” said the source. “I’m not sure why they’re not calling it a criminal probe.

    DEABORN, MI -- Robert Snell of the Detroit News analyzed flight data that shows a single-engine, 2010 Cessna tied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation by an Associated Press investigation this June spent a good amount of time in the skies above the Muslim-concentrated city of Dearborn this weekend. The flight data showed the plane on Saturday and Sunday made 19 slow-speed, several-mile-wide loops above Dearborn, as well as neighboring cities of Allen Park, Melvindale, Dearborn Heights and Taylor. "The FBI is operating a small air force with scores of low-flying planes across the country carrying video and, at times,...
