    Daily Caller ^ | April 13, 2016 | Jamie Weinstein
    Heidi Cruz is silent no more. Talking to Fox News' Megyn Kelly Tuesday night, the wife of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz spoke out for the first time about the National Enquirer story alleging her husband engaged in affairs with five different women. In the interview, Mrs. Cruz called the report "garbage" and accused Donald Trump of planting the story. "It's garbage. It's just garbage," she said on "The Kelly File." "This is another example of Donald Trump engaging in the politics of personal destruction, using his henchmen to go out and try to destroy others when he is losing. And...

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | April 11, 2016 | Jenna Lifhits
    In an interview with two Philadelphia newspapers Monday, Hillary Clinton again refused to release the transcripts to her pricy Wall Street speeches but insisted that she was the most transparent candidate for president. "Well, I can only say this: let's make sure everybody is already as transparent as I," Clinton said when asked whether her refusal to release the transcripts signaled that she had "something to hide." Clinton avoided discussing the transcripts and instead focused on the "30 years" worth of tax returns that she had released. Seeing as rival Bernie Sanders has yet to release his tax returns, Clinton...

    PJ Media ^ | April 8, 2016 | Roger L Simon
    After several years of incarceration in his native Romania, Marcel Lazar Lehel, aka Guccifer, has finally arrived this week in Alexandria, Virginia, to face nine charges of computer hacking. Guccifer, it will be recalled, is the one who revealed the presence of Hillary Clinton's private server through his hacking of Sidney Blumenthal's email account. Catherine Herridge and Pamela K. Browne of Fox point out the interesting timing of his extradition: Romanian media have reported the [FBI] request came on or about Dec. 29, 2015. That would have been shortly after the intelligence community's identification of emails beyond "top secret" on...

Chief Justixe Roberts made his decision late yesterday: Sibley's application was directed to Chief Justice John Roberts, the justice assigned to emergency appeals from the Washington, D.C. area.

Undeterrred, Sibley writes on his blog that he will now appeal to Clarence Thomas: Yesterday, Chief Justice Roberts denied my Application to be relieved from the Restraining Order which prohibits me from releasing any of the...

    Former law enforcement and intelligence officials contacted by TheDCNF agree if there is wrongdoing, it is likely prosecutors will focus on the classified documents. The most serious charges are felonies cited in Title 18 of the U.S. Code of the Espionage Act in sections 793, 798 and 1001. Experts contacted by TheDCNF say these could serve as the foundation for any criminal prosecution of Clinton or her aides. [Snip] Clinton aides Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin and Jacob Sullivan may be very vulnerable to charges. Waurishuk told TheDCNF "Staff aides like Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, etc. had absolutely 'zero' reason to...

    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.

"It's something I can't really think about, but I can't even imagine what's in those emails. But I'm sure I would probably be mortified. I have no idea. I haven’t read any of them," Abedin, who served as one of Clinton's top aides at State, said in an interview with the podcast "Call Your Girlfriend."

    The Ted Cruz sex scandal story just took another twist, with Cruz blaming Donald Trump for allegedly planting the story that ran last week and serious doubts arising over whether any of it is actually true. The National Enquirer story accused Cruz of cheating on his wife, Heidi, with as many as five mistresses. The women were not named in the story but were quickly identified through their blurred out pictures and details of the alleged affairs. Cruz immediately denounced the story as untrue — as have some of the women identified as his mistresses — and now Cruz is...

    The National Enquirer's name in journalism is synonymous with factually unsupported drivel of the lowest kind. It is a sacred truth that no responsible journalist would reference the kind of garbage found in this tabloid. But somehow it's perfectly appropriate for the same responsible journalists to report the sleaze over and over, emphasizing, of course, that the source is the awful National Enquirer. This is what the networks have done to Sen. Ted Cruz, who the Enquirer recently claimed had affairs with five secret mistresses, including Trump's spokeswoman Katrina Pierson. The unsubstantiated smear should have never seen the light of...

Montgomery Blair Sibley, the late madam Deborah Palfrey’s colorful attorney, has been subject to a restraining order since 2007 barring him from releasing the information, which he says includes 815 names, addresses and Social Security numbers of Verizon Wireless customers. “Time is of the essence because people are casting votes...

He later shifted, saying: "I wouldn't do any funding as long as they are performing abortions." Trump has stuck to that line, but he has also offered a lot of aid and comfort to Planned Parenthood by arguing it does "wonderful things." At Thursday night's debate, Trump said that "millions and millions of women — cervical cancer, breast cancer — are helped by...

    Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein called out Hillary Clinton on Wednesday for continually blaming a "vast right-wing conspiracy" for her campaign woes. "I think she has to acknowledge she's made some terrible misjudgments and errors, particularly on the server," Bernstein said during an interview on CNN. "The vast right-wing conspiracy didn't put the server in her damn closet. She's going to have to get by this thing, and she's going to have to acknowledge a terrible misjudgment it seems to be here."

    The federal judge overseeing the main Hillary Clinton e-mail lawsuit has scheduled a status conference for next week to see where the headline-generating case goes from here. Judge Rudolph Contreras will ask the lawyers at the hearing on February 9 where the lawsuit stands, now that the State Department has said it will finish disclosing the relevant documents by the end of the month. February 9 also happens to be the day of the New Hampshire primary. A year ago, Jason Leopold, an investigative reporter for VICE News, filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the State Department, seeking...

    **SNIP** "All of our sources high up are telling us... that this investigation is far more advanced than we the public knows," Scarborough said, before asking the panelists what information they're getting. "Well, there are three things that people are keying off of. First of all, there are a lot of chatter amongst FBI agents, many of whom have never been big fans of the Clintons. But a lot of FBI agents seem to be saying something is happening here," Bloomberg News analyst Mark Halperin said. "Second is from a legal point of view, you look at the recent developments...

    Just as Hillary Clinton braces for yet-another release of her much-discussed State Department emails, the Clinton Library this week released the largest set of records ever—over 43,000 pages—detailing her husband Bill's use of his executive clemency powers while he was president. The long-secret records include new information on some of the late-term pardons and commutations that created controversy, including a pair of pardons that followed intervention of one of Hillary Clinton's brothers. And the release comes as Republican opposition researchers work overtime combing through the background of the former first lady and Secretary of State, whose presidential candidacy faces a...

    Gov. Kasich has a secret. He hides it well as he peddles his plain-spoken, real-deal, son-of-a-mailman sales pitch as a Republican presidential candidate in New Hampshire. The secret is secure with Kasich loyalists. Mr. Kasich is mum about the details, but a left-leaning blog with an emphasis on Ohio and national politics is on the right track. Plunderbund suggests "a scandal begging to be born" is bubbling in the governor's home state. Out-of-state media are oblivious to the disgrace at the Ohio Department of Education. Team Kasich has effectively kept the story under wraps on the campaign trail. [ ]...

    Justice: It's not often that the victims of IRS abuse find satisfaction, but the Tea Party groups mistreated by the tax collector will get a shot. Maybe next will be an audit of the IRS — which apparently hasn't changed its ways. On Tuesday, Day 978 of the unresolved IRS scandal, a federal judge granted class-action status to as many as 300 conservative groups that have been affected by the agency's practice of unduly scrutinizing small-government organizations that sought tax-exempt status but which the IRS saw as dangerous dissidents. U.S. District Court Judge Susan Dlott's ruling also opens the door...

    Hillary Clinton has brushed off an array of damaging reports about her email scandal as conspiracy theories which only heightens her untrustworthy image, MSNBC's Morning Joe panel said Wednesday. "Her problem is that she's attacked the New York Times. This was a conspiracy from the New York Times, and now, you know, it's the Inspector General from the intel agencies that doesn't want her to get elected president," host Joe Scarborough said. "Voters aren't going to buy that."

    Fox News ^ | January 14, 2016 | Judge Andrew P. Napolitano
    I have argued for two months that Clinton's legal woes are either grave or worse than grave. That argument has been based on the hard, now public evidence of her failure to safeguard national security secrets and the known manner in which the Department of Justice addresses these failures. The failure to safeguard state secrets is an area of the law in which the federal government has been aggressive to the point of being merciless. State secrets are the product of members of the intelligence community's risking their lives to obtain information. [Snip] The obligation of those to whom state...
