    The FBI document of this exchange is part of “The Vault,” which is a collection of documents providing evidence for federal investigators looking into Clinton’s private email server. Most of the documents are testimonies provided to federal investigators in interviews the agents conducted with witnesses. In one of the documents, an unnamed State Department official tells the FBI that “early in Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State, she and her staff were observed removing lamps and furniture from the State Department, which were transported to her residence in Washington, D.C.”
  • Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg replacing 4 next-door Palo Alto homes

    Four houses surrounding Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's home in Palo Alto will be demolished and replaced by smaller ones, according to an application filed with city planners Tuesday. Zuckerberg bought the homes on Hamilton Avenue and Edgewood Drive in 2013 after he learned of a developer's plan to build a house next door tall enough to have a view of Zuckerberg's master bedroom. Concerned about privacy, Zuckerberg paid more than $30 million total for the properties at 1462 Edgewood Drive and 1451, 1457 and 1459 Hamilton in the Crescent Park neighborhood.

    IRWINDALE >> Sriracha’s spicy relationship with the City Council cooled off a bit Wednesday after officials unanimously dismissed a lawsuit and public nuisance declaration against manufacturer Huy Fong Foods. The standoff between the city and Sriracha creator David Tran began in October when the city filed a lawsuit against his iconic company. The battle sparked fears among Sriracha fans there would be a global shortage of the popular condiment and its bottle with the tell-tale green cap. An informal meeting Tuesday between Tran and city officials, accompanied by a written statement from Tran, provided the council the assurance it needed...

    Standing in line at a parts counter here in northeast Oklahoma yesterday, and there were two guys standing behind me having a conversation about Michele Bachmann. I turned around and politely added my $.02, and the gentleman who had dropped her name said "Yeah, I went to law school with her." "Oh really? At ORU? (Oral Roberts University)" I said. He replied "Yeah..." then he kinda looked at me and said "Y'know, I didn't know her well, but she seemed like a typical law student to me. I didn't see her do anything to really distinguish herself from the rest...

    Democrats in Congress appear to be taking full advantage of the "pay to play" system they said led to a "climate of corruption" under Republicans, an ABC News investigation has found. "Washington looks pretty much the same as it always did," said Ellen Miller of the Sunlight Foundation, despite Democratic promises of reform. Campaign finance records made public this week show Democratic congressional campaign committees taking in substantially more in contributions than their Republican counterparts. According to the records, the Democratic House and Senate committees reported $32.7 million in contributions. The Republican committees reported $22.9 million. One of the Democrats'...
