    The legal noose around Hillary Clinton is getting tighter, Judge Andrew Napolitano explained this morning on "America's Newsroom." On NBC's "TODAY" show, the former secretary of state appeared angry when asked about the House Benghazi Committee, arguing that the panel is conducting a "partisan political" investigation. When asked about her private email server, she said that what she did was "allowed" even though it wasn't the "best choice." Clinton said each government official can determine which messages are personal and which ones are work-related. Napolitano said the "noose" is tightening and that Clinton created these problems for herself. He said...

    Reuters via Rig Zone ^ | October 05, 2015 | Ahmed Elumami
    Libya's oil production has dropped to 300,000 barrels per day, less than a quarter of what it produced before the 2011 fall of Muammar Gaddafi, mostly because of insecurity and closed pipelines, a top official said. The North African state is caught in a conflict between two rival governments and their armed allies -- one internationally recognised, and the other a self-declared administration that took over Tripoli last year. Naji Moghrab, the top state oil official with the recognised government, told a local television channel late on Sunday output was at 300,000 bpd because of fighting between various armed factions...

    That Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin had her fingers in multiple financial pots — even while still high up in the State Department — is no secret. But the full extent of Abedin’s blurring of roles is coming to light. This summer, The Washington Post revealed that, at one point, Abedin — unusually granted “special government employee” status — was getting paid four different ways: from the taxpayers for her State work, from the Clinton Foundation, as political adviser to Hillary and by the Clinton-allied firm Teneo Holdings. The Washington Times reported last week how Huma’s hats came together in...

    Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Saturday asked Oil Minister Sherif Ismail to form a new cabinet within one week after the government submitted its resignation, a statement from the presidency said. It was not immediately clear why the government resigned but officials told Reuters on condition of anonymity that Sisi had been unhappy with the performance of several ministries. The announcement comes almost one week after the authorities arrested Egypt's agriculture minister over corruption allegations. Egypt is battling an insurgency headed by an affiliate of Islamic State while trying to attract more foreign investment in an economy reeling from...

    Egypt’s President Sisi has appointed Sherif Ismail, Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, as Egypt’s new Prime Minister less than an hour after news emerged that the government had resigned.

The resignation, which included all cabinet members, was accepted by President Sisi on Saturday morning. However, the President ordered the cabinet to continue carrying out their duties until a new cabinet is formed. The surprise resignation comes days after Egypt’s Agriculture Minister resigned and was arrested amid allegations of corruption....

    About a third of the migrants that have reached Italy so far this year have refused to be identified, according to Italian police. Syrians and Eritreans are among those most likely to refuse to be identified upon arrival, forensic police chief Daniela Stradiotto told a parliamentary commission. Out of the 122,000 people that have arrived on Italian shores this year, 41,000 people have refused identification. EU regulation requires immigrants' asylum applications to be handled by the country they first reach. But many of the migrants do not wish to stay in Italy, rather they are hoping to reach countries such...

    Do you remember Lewis "Scooter" Libby? In 2003, the Department of Justice appointed a special counsel to investigate allegations that Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, unlawfully disclosed the covert status of CIA operative Valerie Plame. Yet Plame may not have been a covert undercover agent, based on the formal government definition of that role. And even if she were, it was widely known at the time that Secretary of State Colin Powell's subordinate, Richard Armitage, had most likely disclosed her status earlier. In other words, Libby was in an Orwellian position of being accused of a crime...

    “I didn’t feel good about it”. Washington loves waving away questions after a scandal with a commission or a review board. The so-called Accountability Review Board on Benghazi whose results the media trumpeted as answering all the questions about what happened was rigged from the start. Thomas Pickering is a highly partisan figure who, among other things, is a key Iran Lobby figure. A few scapegoats were served up without actually firing them. But the process was apparently even more tainted by the Clintons as the latest Gowdy hearings have shown. ... They were never independent, but this completes the...

    Facing a congressional subpoena, a former State Department staffer connected to Hillary Clinton's private email server has decided to invoke his Fifth Amendment right.

Gowdy wants Pagliano to appear before the Benghazi Committee to provide documents “related to the servers or systems” operated and owned by Clinton. Mr. Pagliano’s legal counsel told the committee on Tuesday that he would plead the 5th to...
