    Message indiscipline. This was a pretty rare, unguarded moment for Josh Earnest. All Democrats understand the absolute importance of message discipline, which always starts with the consistent use of words designed to support their narrative, no matter how absurd that narrative might be. That’s why abortion is “choice” and tax hikes are “fairness” and being a Republican is “racism.” You use the correct words, always, everywhere, and you don’t waver. Nowhere is this more true than with the Hillary e-mail investigation, which Hillary keeps trying to label a “security inquiry” - a thing that doesn’t even exist according to the...

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu apologized for condemning an incident which three Arabs raped a 20-year-old mentally disabled Jewish girl for "nationalistic" motives Thursday night, saying Friday that he "regretted" commenting on it. "As reported, the incident caused me deep pain and shock," Netanyahu posted on Facebook Friday. "With that, I had no right to relate to it until the issue was investigated, and I regret that." In a post on his Facebook page Thursday, Netanyahu wrote that the rape “is a horrifying crime that requires wall to wall condemnation, but such condemnation has for some reason not been heard –...

    The revelation that Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is facing a federal investigation related to campaign donations could complicate Hillary Clinton's effort to win the state in November. The ties between McAuliffe and the Clinton family run deep -- both personally and professionally. McAuliffe often refers to Bill Clinton as his best friend. He served as Clinton's handpicked chair of the Democratic National Committee. Hillary Clinton was an early and enthusiastic supporter of McAuliffe's run for governor in 2013. Several of McAuliffe's key campaign staffers have graduated to the Clinton campaign.. McAuliffe has denied any wrongdoing and said "Investigations happen, no...

    The House Committee on Energy and Commerce will use its Select Investigative Panel to investigate late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart. Public reports show at least almost half-a-dozen women have been hospitalized since December while seeking an abortion at his Germantown, Md., abortion clinic. The clinic is one of the few in the country that performs abortions during the third trimester. "Reports regarding the Germantown clinic are deeply troubling, both for the sake of babies whose lives are ended so close to — and possibly even after — birth and for the sake of the women who have been rushed from that...

    The FBI has not reached out to Hillary Clinton to schedule an interview over her private email server, the Democratic front-runner said in an interview Sunday. "No. No, they haven't," Clinton told NBC News' "Meet the Press," when asked whether federal investigators had been in contact with her. "But you know, back in August, we made clear that I'm happy to answer any questions that anybody might have. And I stand by that." Pressed on whether the FBI probe could interfere with her path to the nomination, Clinton said she was not "concerned" about it.

    Critics of the Obama administration say Attorney General Loretta Lynch should be disqualified from overseeing the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server because of the more than $10,000 she has given to Democrats in recent years. With Republicans already calling for a special prosecutor to monitor the probe, conservatives are pouncing on the past campaign contributions as evidence of bias. "The latest assertion from her allies that Loretta Lynch is not 'political' is totally untrue," said David Bossie, the president of conservative advocacy organization Citizens United in a statement to The Hill.

Republicans on the House Benghazi panel were traveling to Europe, while Senate investigators continue to probe Clinton's use of a private homebrew email server for business purposes and her decision to delete messages she deemed personal. Clinton served as secretary of state during the Benghazi attacks that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens,...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Management flaws at the IRS contributed to a "dysfunctional culture" that allowed agents to mistreat conservative political groups when they applied for tax-exempt status, according to the results of a bipartisan congressional investigation released Wednesday. The report by the Senate Finance Committee lays much of the blame for the scandal on former IRS official Lois Lerner, who used to head the division that processes applications for tax-exempt status. The report says Lerner waited nearly two years before informing her supervisors about long delays in the processing of applications.

The dispute has set off a firestorm in Israel, where many say the legal threat would shackle soldiers in any future battle, lower their morale and shatter a sacred trust on which Israel’s compulsory military service relies.But with the Palestinians announcing their application last week to the International Criminal Court, the decision to investigate becomes all the more pressing: A robust Israeli inquiry into its...

Now it’s opening up a “pattern and practice” investigation of the entire Ferguson police force. The big question: Is this Justice Department capable of conducting a fair and impartial investigation? The applicable federal law (42 U.S.C. §14141) makes it unlawful for any governmental authority “to engage in a pattern or practice of conduct by law enforcement officers … that deprives...

    With an unprecedented amount of attention focused on the Tony Stewart investigation, many are eager to know the outcome amid calls by some that politics might play a part in the report's release. As the probe into the Aug. 9 crash at Canandaigua Motorsports Park drags into its fourth week, the Ontario County District Attorney’s Office is refusing calls and Ontario County Sheriff Phil Povero said reporter inquiries are coming from as far away as Japan... Some are already drawing conclusions — about whether Stewart will face charges and whether the political race between Povero and his challenger, ex-road patrol...

    Why has a federal civil-rights murder investigation arisen out of the tumult in a St. Louis exurb? There is only one plausible reason: Eric Holder is guilty of racial profiling. To be clear, we are not talking here about whether there was justification for the shooting of a young black man, 18-year-old Michael Brown, by a young white police officer, 28-year-old Darren Wilson. Was the shooting a legitimate exercise in self-defense by an officer under attack? Was it an overreaction for which Officer Wilson should suffer serious civil and criminal consequences? Such questions can only be answered by a thorough...

    PJ Media has been covering the Criminal Section of the Civil Rights Division for years. This is the unit that will be investigating the shooting in Ferguson and deciding whether to charge the police officer with civil rights crimes. PJ Media had to sue Eric Holder to obtain the resumes of the lawyers he hired to populate this unit. No wonder. The “Every Single One”series at PJ Media revealed that all of Holder’s attorney hires were leftists, some even with a history of anti-police activities. Read the detailed biographies of the lawyers here. Why does it matter that the DOJ...

    Rep. Trey Gowdy was bombarded with requests from fellow Republicans, eager to take part in the latest congressional investigation of the Benghazi attack. But when it became clear that he intended to lead the inquiry behind closed doors, far from the spotlight, the requests soon fell silent. “If you want to get on the news, then go rob a bank,” Gowdy, R-S.C., said, recounting his message to several Republicans on both sides of Capitol Hill, dashing their hopes of being featured in what they assumed would be high-profile televised hearings.

    Arab MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad) arrived on Monday morning to a police station in Lod, to be investigated by the Lahav 433 unit over incitement to violence and insulting a public worker. Zoabi's arrival for investigation comes after Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein ordered her to do so last Tuesday, after she more than once refused to show up, at one point claiming she has "no time" to sit for the police investigation. Nationalist activists waving Israeli flags, led by Attorney Itamar Ben-Gvir, were waiting at the station as Zoabi pulled up in her car, at which they tried to approach...

    A White House spokesman said Wednesday that there is an "ongoing law enforcement investigation" related to a recording released earlier in the day by a Republican congressman who alleged it showed improper fundraising activity by former U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis -- now a Los Angeles County supervisor-elect. The comment by White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest at a press briefing was the first public confirmation by the administration of the existence of such an investigation. Earnest noted that the investigation had been reported on in January. The Times first reported the federal investigation into Solis´ activities at that time,
