  • Hillary Sorry for Saying She Would Put Coal 'Out of Business'

    "It was a misstatement." Back in March, former first lady and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said at a CNN town hall that she wanted to put coal miners and the coal industry "out of business." At the event Clinton said she was the only candidate who "has a policy about how to bring economic opportunity using clean renewable energy as the key into coal country. We're going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business," she said. But now that Clinton is campaigning in West Virginia, her tune has changed. "What I said was totally...

    Thursday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” host Andrea Mitchell said while Vice President Joe Biden is deciding whether or not to challenge former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination, he is taking into account that he “thinks that he would be a better president than Hillary Clinton.”
  • Member of Hillary Clinton ‘Inner Circle’ May Have Committed Felony, State Department Official Says

    As Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign insists that the former secretary of state never sent or received classified information via her personal email, a State Department official supposes that a member of Clinton’s “inner circle” likely cleared emails of any classification markings. An anonymous official at the State Department told Fox News that intelligence community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III confirmed that at least one of the seven Clinton emails he deemed classified contained information that could have only come from the intelligence community. The message reportedly contained satellite images and signals intelligence. “If so, they would have had to...
  • Hillary Clinton’s Server Was In New Jersey This Whole Time. It’s Blank Now (& Totally Insecure!)

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s mysterious email server has been in a private data center in New Jersey since 2013, that is, until the IT company the former secretary of state hired to maintain the hardware handed the “blank” device over to the FBI Wednesday. Clinton’s attorney, David Kendall, informed the Department of State in a letter Wednesday that the company hired to manage and maintain the server, Denver-based Platte River Networks, was turning it over to the Department of Justice. Kendall also told State he handed over three thumb drives that contained Clinton’s emails. The Washington Post reported the...

    Real Clear Politics ^ | August 13th, 2015 | By Charles Lipson
    The political class is seriously underestimating the impact of Hillary Clinton’s email controversy. They see it mainly as a problem of public opinion and electoral politics, where it has been increasingly costly but not yet fatal. The political damage—the drip, drip, drip of revelations—has been bad, but there is worse to come. Hillary Clinton’s big problem now is legal, and it could well be insurmountable politically. Here’s why. Once a “political” issue finally moves into the legal system, as the Clinton email server has, it moves forward with an independent logic. That logic will slowly ensnare Secretary Clinton. You can...

    Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s most trusted confidante, is increasingly becoming a central figure in the email scandal that’s haunting her boss on the campaign trail, as Republicans and federal judges seek information about Clinton’s communications while she was running the State Department. The 2016 Democratic front-runner on Monday told a federal judge that Abedin — long considered her boss’s keeper and even dubbed her “shadow” — had her own email account on Clinton’s now infamous home-brewed server, “which was used at times for government business,” Clinton acknowledged. That’s an unusual arrangement, even for top brass at the State Department. Abedin...
  • Clinton campaign corrals media

    Gorham, New Hampshire (CNN)—Hillary Clinton's campaign used a rope to keep journalists away from the candidate on Saturday while she walked in this small town's July Fourth parade. The ensuing photos of journalists, including a CNN reporter, being somewhat dragged by a thin white rope as Clinton walked down Main Street caught fire online. Initially, Clinton's campaign was not using a rope to corral the press, allowing journalists to get close to her and ask her questions. But campaign aides said they brought the rope out because they feared the press scrum of around a dozen reporters and photojournalists would...

    She Rides By Van: The Hillary Clinton Launch By Charles Krauthammer April 16 See Hillary ride in a van! Watch her meet everyday Americans! Witness her ordering a burrito bowl at Chipotle! Which she did wearing shades, as did her chief aide Huma Abedin, yielding security-camera pictures that made them look (to borrow from Karl Rove) like fugitives on the lam, wanted in seven states for a failed foreign policy. There’s something surreal about Hillary Clinton’s Marie Antoinette tour, sampling cake and commoners. But what else can she do? After Barack Obama, she’s the best-known political figure in America. She...
  • Madam Secretary Made a Difference (Lickspittle Alert)

    When politicians have trouble spinning their own glories, that’s a problem. So it was bizarre that Hillary Rodham Clinton, asked at a forum in April about her legacy at the State Department, had trouble articulating it. That feeds into a narrative — awaiting her memoir on Tuesday — that she may have been glamorous as secretary of state but didn’t actually accomplish much. In fact, that’s dead wrong, for Clinton achieved a great deal and left a hefty legacy — just not the traditional kind.... No, her legacy is different. For starters, Clinton recognized that our future.... More fundamentally, Clinton...

    Arkansas Times ^ | 16 MAR 2012 | Max Brantley
    The Little Rock Airport Commission has scheduled a discussion at its meeting Tuesday to rename the airport the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport. The idea has kicked around for years, with varying amounts of cheering and jeering. Hillary Clinton served for a time as legal counsel to the airport. I'm guessing the votes are in hand now to honor Arkansas's native son president and his wife, the secretary of state. It's better than a guess. Our FOI request early today produced 1) renderings of various proposed sign treatments including the one above; 2) the resolution the commission has up...

    YANGON, Myanmar — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said during a landmark visit to Myanmar on Thursday that the U.S. would ease aid restrictions and consider further steps to improving relations with the country's autocratic rulers if they continued down a path of political and economic reform. Clinton described her meeting with Thein Sein, Myanmar's president, as "candid, productive," but cautioned that while the "measures already taken may be unprecedented and welcomed, they are just the beginning." She said Thein Sein told her during a private 45-minute meeting that he "hopes to build on" a flurry of political overhauls...

    The WikiLeaks documents show that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has, as Voltaire said about the Bourbon kings of France, learned nothing and forgotten nothing. Her request that American diplomats at foreign postings and the United Nations gather personal data about their foreign counterparts is eerily reminiscent of her use of private detectives to unearth negative information on those who were politically inconvenient during the husband’s campaigns for president and his White House tenure. At the time, I called these operatives, the “secret police.” Now, apparently, we call them the “diplomatic corps.” The WikiLeaks documents show that you can...

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made a rare foray into domestic politics today, offering her view that — given America's high unemployment — wealthy Americans don't pay enough taxes. "The rich are not paying their fair share in any nation that is facing the kind of employment issues [America currently does] — whether it's individual, corporate or whatever [form of] taxation forms," Clinton told an audience at the Brookings Institution, where she was discussing the Administration's new National Security Strategy. Clinton said the comment was her personal opinion alone. "I'm not speaking for the administration, so I'll preface that with...

"I think that is a fundamental sort of misunderstanding of the role of religion and faith in times that are bad," Clitnon said.

    NEW YORK (CBS) ― Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton hinted at the possibility of a democratic "dream ticket" with Sen. Barack Obama. Speaking on the Early Show on CBS, Clinton said "that may be where this is headed, but we have to decide who is on the top of the ticket." Clinton said the race between her and Obama remains "incredibly close," with just "smidgens of difference" between them. Clinton's remarks after her campaign won two big states yesterday: Ohio and Texas. She also won Rhode Island. The wins enabled her campaign to break Obama's 12-state winning streak and pick up...

    “This is so nostalgic,” Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton LAW ’73 declared upon entering the Yale Child Study Center on Monday morning. Clinton’s reminiscence was not unexpected — Monday’s roundtable discussion with women at the Child Study Center did, after all, mark the first time she has come to Yale since announcing her campaign for president last January. But it also amounted to Yale’s first appearance on the 2008 presidential race stage — a stark contrast to past contests that have featured, as in 2004, three Eli frontrunners and dueling members of Skull and Bones. The senator, whose pit stop...
