  • Lynch to Accept F.B.I. Recommendations in Clinton Email Inquiry, Official Says

    Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch plans to announce on Friday that she will accept whatever recommendation career prosecutors and the F.B.I. director make about whether to bring charges related to Hillary Clinton’s personal email server, a Justice Department official said. Her decision removes the possibility that a political appointee will overrule investigators in the case. The Justice Department had been moving toward such an arrangement for months — officials said in April that it was being considered — but a private meeting between Ms. Lynch and former President Bill Clinton this week set off a political furor and made the...
  • "Vanity" Loretta Lynch Hangs Hillary Clinton onto POTUS, Obama!!!

    Attorney General, Loretta Lynch does a cute CYA number on POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton!!! IMHO, I believe the "random" LAX airport get together, between AG, Loretta Lynch & former POTUS, Bill Clinton was far from being a random was well planned from the start. Ms. Lynch, I believe, marched into the office of POTUS, Obama, and informed him that she wanted no part whatsoever with the choice of indicting Hillary Clinton as a felon, under any circumstances. She stated, that she would not stain her personal record to politically protect a proven felon, if the...

    Reporter Christopher Sign of ABC 15 in Phoenix, AZ appeared on The O’Reilly Factor Thursday night to talk about his scoop involving that secret meeting between former President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Watch the entire interview below. Sign lays out how the story developed and then he leaves this little nugget: “The former president steps into her plane. They then speak for 30 minutes privately. The FBI there on the tarmac instructing everybody around ‘no photos, no pictures, no cell phones.'” First of all, it isn’t the FBI’s job to tell journalists or private citizens they can’t...
  • A Suspicious Meeting in Phoenix Probably Means FBI Charges against Clinton

    American Thinker ^ | July 1, 2016 | Jonathan F. Keiler
    On Tuesday Attorney General Loretta Lynch met former President Bill Clinton at a Phoenix airport where they held a discussion that lasted at least thirty minutes. Lynch’s explanation for her meeting with Clinton was that it was entirely coincidental and they mainly discussed his two infant grandchildren. This is unconvincing if not preposterous. When Loretta Lynch opens her mouth to speak on a public policy issue, she, like her boss the president, is not likely to be telling the truth. So we can pretty confidently presume that something else topped the agenda, to wit: a forthcoming referral of criminal charges...
  • After Lynch’s Mystery Meeting With Bill, Justice Dept. “Shields Clinton Foundation Emails”

    07/01/2016 4:32:19 AM PDT · by V K Lee · 24 replies ^ | July 1, 2016 | Mac Slavo
    Yesterday’s mystery meeting on the tarmac between former President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch has now been clarified. Obviously, it wasn’t a social visit as Lynch publicly claimed, but an arrangement clarifying how the powerful Clinton dynasty would be kept above the law in the face of heated publicly scrutiny as Hillary Clinton seeks the presidency. Instead, the Justice Department filed a motion that would keep from release thousands of emails potentially exposing conflicts of interest on the part of the Clinton Foundation and overlapping state department officials, such as Hillary’s chief of staff Huma Abedin.

    President Obama brusquely cut off a reporter’s question Thursday about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email system at the State Department. At a press conference in Japan, the president said he would take one more question from reporters. But when the question turned out to be about Mrs. Clinton’s emails that violated State Department rules, he quickly changed his mind. “You know I take it back — I’m not taking another question,” Mr. Obama said. “We’re in Japan, don’t you have something to do with Asia that we want to talk about?

    The FBI is being accused of forming a wall around Hillary Clinton over the Clintonemail server. The latest battle happened in court yesterday when the FBI flat-out said no to the State Department on what information could be found on the email server, citing federal policy. “At this time, consistent with long-standing Department of Justice and FBI policy, we can neither confirm nor deny the existence of any ongoing investigation, nor are we in a position to provide additional information at this time.” This shouldn’t be surprising because law enforcement tends to be pretty protective into what they’re investigating....

    The Select Committee on Benghazi released its interim report Friday, and while it documented the progress of the investigation into the terror attack, there apparently remains one problem — the White House’s refusal to fully cooperate with the committee. According to Republican South Carolina representative and committee chairman Trey Gowdy, the Obama administration is dragging its feet when it comes to releasing requested documents for the investigation. “This Committee has interviewed eyewitnesses never before interviewed, obtained tens-of-thousands of pages of documents never before provided, and reviewed new information central to the investigation such as FBI reports specific to the interrogation...

    President Barack Obama rejected the GOP’s short-term debt limit plan because it does not also end the partial government shutdown, the New York Times reports. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) reportedly left Thursday’s meeting at the White House with Obama without issuing a public comment to the press. Even though House Republicans softened their long-standing demands, Obama’s rejection isn’t entirely a shock given that Senate Democrats had already declared it unacceptable on Thursday. “Not going to happen,” declared Majority Leader Harry Reid, standing outside the White House after he and fellow Democrats met with President Barack Obama. Reid referred to...

    President Obama led us to believe that he would be a post-racial president who would bring the races together, but it's gotten to where you can't criticize this most leftist administration in American history without someone accusing you of racism. The most recent example involves criticism of Attorney General Eric Holder over Fast and Furious, an operation conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which was overseen by the Justice Department. It involved the indirect sale of weapons to Mexican drug cartels, which resulted in some 300 killings in Mexico, including the murder of Border Patrol agent...

In a letter to the Republican leaders of the committee, White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler called the subpoena a partisan "vast fishing expedition" without legal justification.

    The White House is strongly rebuffing a subpoena from House Republicans seeking all communications about a failed solar panel manufacturer that received a half-billion dollar federal loan guarantee. In a letter to two top Republicans on the House energy panel, White House Counsel Kathy Ruemmler says partisan politics is driving the request. The White House has already turned over 85,000 pages of documents on Solyndra. The company filed for bankruptcy and laid off 1,100 workers after receiving $528 million in federal backing. Ruemmler said those documents show no wrongdoing or political favoritism by the administration. House Republicans have used Solyndra...

Last week, state Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata, D-Oakland, threw a fit over deployment: "As a matter of moral principle and constitutional precedent, we will not be party to budgeting one dime to enable any role for the California National Guard in border monitoring until the Senate immediately and thoroughly reviews the implications of this use of state funds and personnel," he wrote to the budget committee chairman. In other words, stonewall — a game the...

    New York Times executives are "stonewalling" on questions about the paper's decision to publish top secret information about the Bush administration's use of the National Security Agency to conduct surveillance operations against terrorists, the paper's public editor charged on Sunday. "The New York Times's explanation of its decision to report, after what it said was a one-year delay, that the National Security Agency is eavesdropping domestically without court-approved warrants was woefully inadequate," public editor Byron Calame wrote in a New Years Day column. In its initial report on Dec. 16, Times said that editors held the story at the request...

    Let’s remember, as we contemplate public editor Barney Calame’s stinging Jan. 1 column, Behind the Eavesdropping Story, a Loud Silence, that Bill Keller hired Calame and he’s the only one who can fire him. (His term runs to May, 2007.)This is relevant because Calame has called Keller’s decision-making “woefully inadequate,” while charging that both Keller and Arthur Sulzberger, Jr. have “stonewalled” him. Also because Steve Lovelady, editor of CJR Daily, has already suggested that Calame’s position may be tenuous. “Keller and Sulzberger have finally run head on into an honest man who will not bend; and he has the balls...

    The full grovelBy Thomas LifsonJan. 1,2006 Byron Calame, public editor of the New York Times, addresses his newspaper's role in publishing leaked classified information about the NSA's surveillance program. As the Department of Justice has launched an investigation of the probably criminal leaking and possibly criminal publication of the data, interest in the matter could not be higher. Shockingly enough, his superiors stonewall him when it comes to explaining why they waited a year to publish the revelations. Moreover, their story about the actual time interval of the delay has certain inconsistencies. Usually, when those under investigation for possible criminal...

    The New York Times's explanation of its decision to report, after what it said was a one-year delay, that the National Security Agency is eavesdropping domestically without court-approved warrants was woefully inadequate. And I have had unusual difficulty getting a better explanation for readers, despite the paper's repeated pledges of greater transparency. For the first time since I became public editor, the executive editor and the publisher have declined to respond to my requests for information about news-related decision-making. My queries concerned the timing of the exclusive Dec. 16 article about President Bush's secret decision in the months after 9/11...

    Last week, when the Boston Globe made public that John Kerry's grades at Yale were not as good as were President Bush's, lost in the ensuing reporting of that fact was the hidden fact that, in order for the Globe to have access to Kerry's grades, John Kerry had to sign the infamous Form 180 -- the form that authorizes the release of Kerry's military records.

  • 9/11 Panel Slow to Answer Gorelick Questions, Lawmaker Says

    ( - Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) says the 9/11 commission is taking too long to respond to his concerns about Commissioner Jamie Gorelick's involvement in erecting a "wall" between intelligence and law enforcement agencies. As has reported, Gorelick -- who served as deputy attorney general in the Clinton administration -- wrote a memo in 1995 setting up guidelines for Justice Department investigations. Those guidelines discouraged U.S. intelligence agencies from sharing information with the FBI. A senior U.S. government official told that the 1995 memo created a "roadblock" to the probe of the 1996 Clinton re-election fundraising scandal. And...
