    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has promised to back a path to "full and equal citizenship" for illegal immigrants, and has accused Republicans of treating illegals as "second class." "This is where I differ with everybody on the Republican side. Make no mistake, not a single Republican ... is clearly and consistently supporting a path to citizenship. Not one," Clinton said during a campaign stop in Nevada on Tuesday, according to The Associated Press. "When they talk about legal status, that is code for second-class status." Clinton further said that she backs President Barack Obama's executive actions that allow some...

    Timer ready? Go!: foreign countries and rich people gave millions to the Clinton Foundation and/or paid Bill big bucks to give speeches. In return, the State Department pushed policies favorable to them. And, stop! I timed that at exactly eleven seconds. On today's Morning Joe, Mike Barnicle made the absurd claim that the shady dealings described in Clinton Cash, officially out today, won't hurt Hillary much because they're too hard for Americans to understand.

    Boeing gave heavily to the Clinton Foundation after Hillary Clinton helped it secure a major deal with a Russian airline in 2009, author Pete Schweizer noted in his book, Clinton Cash. The company was also involved in funding one of Clinton's pet projects at the State Department after the agency reportedly brushed aside ethical guidelines to secure a $2 million contribution.Boeing remains a major partner of the Clinton Foundation, supporting Clinton Global Initiative projects and donating between $1 million and $5 million to the charity.

The presumptive Democratic nominee campaigns in Nevada where her campaign told several news outlets that she will embrace “a full and equal path to citizenship” for illegal immigrants. In 2008, Clinton wasn’t even a supporter of the mainstream Democratic position of allowing illegal immigrants to have driver’s licenses. Now she is ready to go for a full amnesty. USA Today reports that Clinton is embracing President Obama’s immigration policy and campaign style today: “She will chat with Rancho High School students who are DREAMers, the term...

The Clintons have certainly stuck with the narrative of being average people. He defends his half million dollar speaking fees with “I gotta pay our bills,” and “it’s the most independence I can get.” While there in nothing wrong with his right to earn a living by fetching great sums for his appearances, the Clintons really need to stop pretending they are one of the “little people.” And whenever they get caught being rich, they throw in a something about being...

Lukyanov is the chair of Russia's Council on Foreign and Defense Policy, as well as the editor-in-chief of the journal Russia in Global Affairs, which are something like the Russian equivalents of America's Council on Foreign Relations and Foreign Affairs — though the Russian versions are considered much closer to the state and its worldview.

    I cannot believe I’m writing this. I mean, when you think about it, how much sense does it make that Carly Fiorina is running for president? With chances less than zero of getting beyond New Hampshire, let alone Super Tuesday, Fiorina began making the cable news show rounds in recent weeks. Name a hot bed issue and there she was, under the studio Klieg lights, nattily dressed and ready to rattle off a litany of conservative talking points. That has always been the “Fiorina Way,” after all: toe the party (or company) line even as the boat sinks. For now...

    The big threat to Hillary Clinton’s campaign isn’t coming from a competitor. It’s coming from an issue. And it’s coming now, long before the first primary. Will she be for or against giving President Barack Obama fast-track authority to negotiate trade deals? Fast track gives a president the power to make trade deals that cannot be amended by Congress. All Congress can do is accept or reject the agreement. Other countries, say fast-track supporters, won’t negotiate with Washington if they know that Congress can amend any deal they agree to. Obama’s problem is with Democrats. They are horrified by the...

Clinton brushed aside widely perceived impressions that government has done a bad job by pointing out the early history of Christianity's failures. "Jesus' performance compares quite unfavorably with what modern government has been able to deliver," she said. "His people—the Christians—faced centuries of persecution. They were crucified.

But her rivals, and the political action committees that support them, are treading more carefully on one incendiary subject: her age . If elected in November 2016, Clinton would be, at 69, the second-oldest person to take the presidential oath for the first time, behind only Ronald Reagan, who turned 70 weeks after being sworn into office in 1981.

Clinton’s struggles to explain her email practices while in government, along with questions about the Clinton Foundation and Republican criticism of her openness, wealth and trustworthiness seem to have struck a nerve in the public’s perception of the dominant Democratic figure in the 2016 campaign.

Justice is measured in the facts of each individual case.  It is not...

It was the manner of his death, suffering a fractured spine in police custody, that makes Freddie matter.

Those on the four-country tour are expected to observe foreign projects the Clinton Global Initiative has backed connected to health care, global warming, wildlife protection, education and agriculture. While foundation aides tout their many successful initiatives in Africa, the trip comes amid the growing controversy over donations to the Clinton family's foundation. Conservative...

For the first time since it was registered to accept donations in 2007, CGEP spent more on salaries and office supplies in 2013 than it did on charitable giving. The NY Times revealed Wednesday that the Canadian charity collected about $33 million between 2008 and 2013 of which $25 million was passed across the border to the U.S. based Clinton Foundation. However there was a sharp drop in giving in 2013,...

    As Clinton scandals continue to mount and her credibility plummets, gleeful Republicans are quietly discussing what once seemed impossible: Hillary Clinton might not survive primary season, let alone make it all the way to Pennsylvania Avenue. That may well turn out to be the case. But it’s not because of the allegations about “Clinton cash” or deleted emails. Those are major political scandals, to be sure, but of a kind that a shameless Bill Clinton skated through easily during his own administration. The deeper problem is personal. As the veteran Democratic strategist Bob Shrum put it to me, rather forlornly,...

    An unprecedented ethics promise that played a pivotal role in confirming Hillary Clinton as secretary of state, amid senators’ concerns about conflicts of interests, was uniformly bypassed by the biggest of the Clinton Foundation philanthropy. The Clinton Health Access Initiative never submitted information on any foreign donations to State Department lawyers during Clinton’s tenure 2009-2013, Maura Daley, the organization’s spokeswoman deemed it unnecessary, except one case she described as an “oversight."....grants from foreign governments increased by tens of millions of dollars to the Boston-based organization. The Clinton health initiative has acknowledged failing only to disclose the identity of its contributors,...

    The watchdog group Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the State Department Thursday seeking paperwork on Hillary Clinton’s request to use an iPad or iPhone for official government business while serving as secretary of state. Judicial Watch says it filed the lawsuit after the State Department failed to adequately respond to a March 10 request made under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) for “any and all records of requests by former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton or her staff to the State Department Office Security Technology seeking approval for the use of an iPad...

    The House voted, as expected, to block a D.C. law banning discrimination by employers against employees who have had abortions. on Thursday night — but the measure is unlikely to have any effect before the law takes effect this weekend. All but 13 Republicans voted for the resolution of disapproval, which passed on a largely party-line, 228-192 vote, while just three Democrats voted in favor of it. The measure got a high-level Democratic opponent on Thursday with Hillary Clinton's campaign weighing in, calling it a move to "overrule the Democratic process" in a statement to CNN. The bill would roll...

    Former Sen. Lincoln Chafee said he is not convinced Hillary Clinton will be the presidential nominee for the Democratic Party. Clinton faces a primary challenge from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) and potentially Chafee himself. When asked about Clinton being pushed further to the left, Chafee brought up the scandals surrounding the Clinton Foundation and lack of accomplishments. “I would argue that between what’s happening internationally in her tenure as Secretary of State, no real accomplishments, and now these new allegations coming out about the Clinton foundation and the book coming out next week. These are real,” Chafee said.

    Hillary Clinton’s proposal to get money out of politics could allow the federal government to restrict or ban the publication of a book that has embroiled her presidential campaign in controversy, experts say. Clinton called for a constitutional amendment to “get unaccountable money out of” politics in an op-ed for the Des Moines Register published Monday. Her campaign did not respond to requests for additional details, but legal experts say similar efforts over the past two years would have profound effects on Americans’ free speech rights.

    Everybody has a particular figure in the news who drives them a little bonkers. You may recall that for some reason, media hosannas for Chelsea Clinton stick in my craw. I’m perfectly happy to see Chelsea Clinton go off and live a happy life as a mom or doing whatever she likes away from the public spotlight. But I’m tired of the media telling us she’s remarkably accomplished in her own right, her keynote addresses to conferences like SXSW, treating her like she’s an A-list celebrity and fascinating figure, the “Woman of the Year” and “Mom of the Year” awards,...

    RUSH: Let's get to this Politico story on the Clintons, 'cause it's big. I mean, The Politico and a lot of Drive-By Media outlets are really worried about this. They're worried about the Peter Schweizer book. They're worried about Hillary's e-mails and the servers. They're worried. This is sticking. There are some people in the media terribly worried about this, and what's also, I think, obvious now is that there is not -- as there was with Obama, there is not -- uniformity in the media supporting Hillary. She does not have blanket support in the media for her presidency,...

    Hillary Clinton doesn't play by the rules. That's not a partisan attack. It's not a talking point. It's not a fantasy. It's a fact—an agonizing truth to people like me who admire Clinton and her husband, who remember how Bill Clinton rose from a backwater governorship to the presidency on a simple promise: He would fight for people who "work hard and play by the rules." The evidence is overwhelming and metastasizing: To co-opt a William Safire line, Hillary Clinton is a congenital rule-breaker. "More than 180 Clinton Foundation donors lobbied her State Department." "That's not illegal," writes Vox reporter...

    State Department officials began allowing the Clinton Foundation to review emails the government planned to release to Congress and Freedom of Information Act requesters in January 2014, prompting a process that has delayed the publication of agency records for months, according to the group pursuing the records. [Snip] "On top of the obstruction that is in no small measure criminal in nature — with the hiding, removal and destruction of records by Mrs. Clinton — they are sending these records out to the foundation that are the very subject of these public controversies," said Tom Fitton. Fitton is president of...

    The Clinton Foundation's finance controversies deepened on Thursday, when The Boston Globe reported that a huge affiliate of the charity failed to report its foreign-government contributions to the State Department. When Hillary Clinton, now the leading Democratic presidential candidate, became secretary of state in 2009, she agreed to have her family's foundation submit new donations from foreign countries for State Department review. This was designed to avoid potential conflicts of interest with her new government role.
