    The computer network used by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clintonís campaign was hacked as part of a broad cyber attack on Democratic political organizations, people familiar with the matter told Reuters. The latest attack, which was disclosed to Reuters on Friday, follows reports of two other hacks on the Democratic National Committee and the partyís fundraising committee for candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives. The U.S. Department of Justice national security division is investigating whether cyber hacking attacks on Democratic political organizations threatened U.S. security, sources familiar with the matter said on Friday.

    This year the Ides of March brings presidential voting to Illinois - a state whose primary often falls so late that it's irrelevant to the nomination process. In 2016, though, Illinois can have impact. Our custom is to offer primary election endorsements to candidates of both major parties. But the 2016 race confronts Illinois voters with uncommon dangers, because so many candidates are playing with fire. The Tribune cannot endorse Trump. While he still holds a lead in delegates, the party is deeply divided. The Tribune today endorses Marco Rubio for the Republican presidential nomination. This being a free country,...

    The Republican National Committee filed two lawsuits on Wednesday seeking to obtain emails related to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's tenure as U.S. secretary of state. The RNC said it filed the lawsuits after the State Department failed to respond in a timely manner to a Freedom of Information Act request submitted in December. It sought the information to ensure the public has information to decide if Clinton is "fit to serve" as president, the RNC said in a statement. The first lawsuit seeks emails, BlackBerry Messenger or text messages between then-Secretary of State Clinton and several key senior aides,...

"You might say, 'Why have they been so mean to her since she left the secretary of state's office,'" he said of Republicans. "You have to understand this is their method of operation.

    During my senior year in college, I applied to become an intern at the State Department's Foreign Service Institute. After passing a lengthy background check, I was given the lowest level security clearance. However, if I had been linked in any way to an ongoing law enforcement investigation, I'd never have been accepted even as an intern, and certainly would never have been given the lowest possible security clearance. Truth be told, you couldn't get a job at McDonalds if you were linked to an FBI investigation. Today, Hillary Clinton is linked to an ongoing FBI investigation, because she used...

Current and former intelligence officials say it is standard practice to suspend a clearance pending the outcome of an investigation. Yet in the case of Cheryl Mills, Clinton's former chief of staff at the State Department, two letters indicate this practice is not being followed - even as the Clinton email system remains the subject of an FBI investigation....

Speaking at Miles College, a historically black college near Birmingham, she hit mostly on economic themes of income inequality and job creation and delivered a forceful defense of President Barack Obamaís record. "I don't think President Obama gets the credit he deserves," she said, drawing cheers and applause from an audience among whom he remains beloved. Calling him a "young,...

    We believe Clinton is the clear choice over Sanders for heart and head alike. A force on the national landscape for more than 30 years, Clinton has distinguished herself in foreign and domestic policy in ways that make her well-suited to represent the party in November. President Obama has said his biggest regret was his inability to breach the divide between Democrats and Republicans. The next president must demonstrate some capacity for working with opponents, for seeking reasonable compromise, while remaining committed to a firm set of values. Clinton has done so throughout her career.

However, imagine if Barack Obama had fabricated a story about surviving sniper fire, only to say that he misspoke. The Atlantic has a recap of at least eight controversies and scandals involving Hillary Clinton. Do you think a person of color in America's political system could have overcome or circumvented this list of controversy? That's called white privilege at its height. Furthermore, although Bernie Sanders has also benefited from white privilege, could he have survived politically...

The two reports are the first formal declarations by U.S. spy agencies detailing how they believe Clinton violated government rules when highly classified information in at least 22 email messages passed through her unsecured home server. Two sources said some of the top secret material was related to the CIA's campaign of drone strikes against...

Now the union is suggesting that Senator Bernie Sanders, who it endorsed for president, request U.N. election observers. Union spokesperson Chuck Idelson said that the red tees were not a first for Clinton supporters and that when nurses attending the caucuses pointed out the Clinton people to the press, they immediately changed back into Clinton campaign blue tees.

    Hillary is veering from the truth when she suggests her $225,000 per speech fee, paid three times by Goldman Sachs, was "what they offered." It was not what they offered - it was what Team Hillary demanded. A review of her 2014 tax return posted on her website shows that $225,000 was her minimum fee. She received $225,000 for 34 of the 41 speeches listed on her tax return. Of the remaining 7 speeches, two were for 250,000 and the others for $265,000, $275,000, $285,000, $305,000 and $400,000. In total she received $9,680,000 for these speaking engagements in 2013. Carl...

    The chart above plots the popularity of the baby name "Hillary" between 1970 and 2014. What you'll notice right away is that the frequency of the name falls of a cliff starting in 1993, the year Hillary Clinton became first lady. Francis Smart of the Econometrics by Simulation blog first pointed this out the other day. He notes that the drop is especially striking, given that the popularity of "Hillary" was rising sharply upward until 1992 or so, the year the Clintons first came on to the national stage.

The two also reported at least $7.7 million for at least 39 speeches to big banks, including Goldman Sachs and UBS, with Hillary Clinton, the Democratic 2016 front-runner, collecting at least $1.8 million for at least eight speeches to big banks.

She could barely hide her contempt for the Iowa Democrats who disserted her. Sanders isn't even a Democrat. According to official...

    Bernie Sanders is 74. He grew up playing stickball in the streets of Brooklyn and watching a black-and-white television. Yet this child of the 1940s, who says Franklin D. Roosevelt is his favorite president, has inspired a potent political movement among young people today. Young voters' support for Mr. Sanders has created a quandary in Hillary Clinton's campaign headquarters in Brooklyn, where millennial staff members have tried to persuade their peers to back the former first lady. The discomfort, and, in some cases hostility, toward Mrs. Clinton among young voters is striking. Some of them, feeling the pinch of economic...

    MANCHESTER, New Hampshire - Hillary Clinton emerged from Iowa with a razor-thin victory over Bernie Sanders - and a new round of nervous second-guessing from supporters. Topping the list of concerns is Clinton's staggering disadvantage with young voters, a crucial Democratic constituency that overwhelmingly sided with Sanders. Clinton supporters are also worried that the campaign is still struggling with a muddled message. Some Democrats warned the candidate against overcorrecting. "Swerving off her lane, changing messages or tone would be a mistake," said Dan Pfeiffer, a longtime Obama adviser. He pointed to March 15 contests in Florida, Ohio and Illinois as...

    Hillary Clinton is trying to tackle Americaís student debt problem, and sheís trying to use emojis to help her case. Clinton on Monday announced plans dubbed ďthe new college compactĒ to commit $350 billion over the next 10 years to make college more affordable, if elected president. Then, she took to Twitter to ask people to use emoji to describe their feelings about student loan debt. The thing is, she hasnít gotten a whole lot of emoji responses. But most of all, her tweet seems to have backfired among most people on Twitter. Some noted that using sad faces, cats...

    Hillary Clinton paid roughly $57 million in federal and state taxes over the last eight years based on a statement just released by the Democratic presidential candidateís campaign. The statement does not say how much Clinton earned each year. She made roughly $15 million in charitable donations. ďWeíve come a long way from my days going door-to-door for the Childrenís Defense Fund and earning $16,450 as a young law professor in Arkansas ó and we owe it to the opportunities America provides,Ē Clinton said in the statement.

    The State Department released a third batch of highly sought after emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's controversial private email account today. Posted on the State Department's Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) website, the collection includes just over 1,300 emails all dated in 2009. One email sent to Secretary Clinton in November of 2009 shows how then-Ambassador to Iraq Christopher Hill described Iraqis as "a collective pain in the neck." The State Department has established a full-time staff, with one project manager, two case analysts, nine FOIA reviewers and a slew of additional information analysts who have been...

    Benghazi! Falling approval ratings! Email-gate! Lately the headlines have been full of gloom for Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton, prompting a spate of columns and commentary about whether her campaign is Officially in Trouble. "Both her and her campaign are in trouble," pollster John Zogby said in a recent television interview. "She is frankly sinking like a rock." But is it really so? Here are some reasons why - and why not - the former secretary of state should be concerned about her presidential prospects.

    Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton is making her second fundraising visit to Chicago on Tuesday, attending an event at the home of securities trader Rajiv Fernando. In 2011, Obama appointed Fernando to serve on the International Security Advisory Board, a panel that was charged with advising then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on sensitive security matters. After the appointment, ABC News raised questions about Fernandoís qualifications for the panel. Days after the report, which also noted Fernandoís contributions to the Clinton Foundation, the trader stepped down from the board, saying he did not have time to serve. Clinton is asking...

    Three months into Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign for president, there are fresh warning signs she may be falling short with some Democratic voters whose enthusiasm will be essential to her success in 2016. Clinton was noticeably absent from the roster of speakers expected this week in Phoenix at the Netroots Nation convention. "I think a lot of people are tired of Hillary Clinton and want something new," said Kristen Millnick of Washington, D.C., who was among hundreds of activists started arriving at Netroots Nation on Thursday. "I think a lot of people will talk themselves into thinking what a great...

    What is the best lie that Hillary Clinton has ever told? Can you pick just one? She's the inevitable Democratic presidential candidate even though 60 percent of Americans consider her a liar. So her pants suits are always on fire, and only a Hillary Meat Puppet would say otherwise. Yet rather than criticize her ó like those other men who just don't get it ó I'd like to celebrate her amazing truth-bending superpowers. We've had males in high office who were great liars, like her husband. So why can't we have an awesome female liar, say a shrewd Mistress of...

    Nothing from her campaign, nothing on Facebook, nothing on Twitter, and no response to media queries to Hillary Clinton about the exposeí video showing the Planned Parenthood abortion business selling the body parts of aborted babies. Apparently Hillary Clinton doesnít remember when she received Planned Parenthoodís Margaret Sanger award with pride, even calling Margaret Sanger someone she ďadmired enormously.Ē During the event, Clinton said that emphasizing and promoting abortion is a key issue and she also defended taxpayer funded abortions for poor women.

    illary Clinton gave a big economics speech here on Monday, and the snap reaction among Wall Street investors, economists and ardent financial reformers who thrill to the soak-the-rich rhetoric of Bernie Sanders was a collective: ďMeh. Whatís next?Ē ďShe appears to have taken a page out of the Elizabeth Warren book,Ē said Jack Ablin, chief investment office at BMO Private bank. ďIím sure a lot of polling went into that. But in terms of inequality and profit-sharing and general economic redistribution, she was a lot longer on problems than she was on solutions.Ē Many conservatives breathed a sigh of relief...
