    WASHINGTON, D.C. — A backup data device containing Hillary Clinton’s emails exists in the FBI’s possession. The FBI is now challenged to produce the long forgotten device. The FBI received a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request “VIA CERTIFIED MAIL” Wednesday from Judicial Watch. The existence of this device is generating behind-the-scenes frenzy in the Beltway as the FBI continues to get hammered over its investigation of the Clinton email scandal. FBI director James Comey conducted an investigation based on small partial email discoveries here and there. The fact that the FBI did not look at all of her...

    the Hill ^ | October 03, 2016, 06:31 pm | By Jordain Carney
    Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) is predicting that congressional Republicans will be more willing to work with Hillary Clinton than they have been with President Obama, should she be elected president. "She is a known commodity, and I think there’ll be more camaraderie in terms of working together, than there might have been in the early days of Obama," Isakson told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Isakson, who is running for reelection and has endorsed GOP nominee Donald Trump, added, "I don’t think it will be like the post-Obama election at all." Isakson's comments come as Clinton has narrowly trailed Trump in...

    Zero Hedge ^ | Oct 3, 2016 1:18 PM | "Tyler Durden"
    Just when you think the Hillary email scandal can't get any more bizarre and corrupt, it does. According to a just released letter from the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Bob Goodlatte (R - Virginia), to Attorney General Lynch, the FBI apparently struck "side agreements" with both Cheryl Mills an Heather Samuelson to "destroy" their "laptops after concluding its search." While we parse the letter to understand what basis for action the FBI may have had when pusuing such a course of action, we can't help but note that the FBI appears to have acted as a co-conspirator in...

    This was not his first time investigating the Clintons [Comey] Nor his second. The email server probe marked the third time Comey has investigated Bill or Hillary Clinton.His first run-in came in the mid-1990s, when he joined the Senate Whitewater Committee as a deputy special counsel. There he dug into allegations that the Clintons took part in a fraud connected to a Arkansas real estate venture gone bust. No charges were ever brought against either Clinton..." "In 2002, Comey, then a federal prosecutor, took over an investigation into President Bill Clinton's 2001 pardon of financier Marc Rich, who had been...

    The release of FBI documents relating to the Clinton email investigation reveal that top Clinton aide Huma Abedin picked one username that Clinton would use on the server, despite claiming she had no knowledge of the server. In recent heavily redacted FBI documents relating to the email hacks and the role that one Clinton “confidential assistant” played in the management of Clinton’s mobile devices and email security, certain documents outline a conversation between Clinton aides Huma Abedin and Monica Handley, Clinton Foundation official Justin Cooper.

    Rep. Trey Gowdy implored FBI Director James Comey to explain his agency’s actions in refusing to prosecute Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information when she was secretary of state. “What would she have had to do to warrant your recommendation for prosecution?” the South Carolina Republican asked Comey during a House Oversight Committee hearing Wednesday. Gowdy wondered what other evidence was needed to prosecute Clinton if all that had been revealed in the federal investigation was not enough as he grilled Comey on the question of intent. Comey noted that intent could be proved by looking at whether a person...

    Submitted via Comey on Clinton email probe: ‘Don’t call us weasels’ … The normally-stoic FBI chief grew emotional as he rejected claims that the FBI was in the tank for Clinton. -Politico James Comey appeared today before the House Judiciary Committee to answer questions about the FBI’s decision not to recommend prosecution of Hillary Clinton regarding misuse of classified emails – and in the process told members that once the politics stopped circulating, the FBI would again be seen as the institution “you know and love.” This hyperbolic statement certainly set the tone for the larger hearing which saw...

    Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) suggested that House Republicans are on the verge of breaking their campaign promise to fight President Obama’s administrative amnesty, as evidenced by the legislative text currently being circulated. Sessions said that the proposed language “fails to meet [the] test” established by Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus, who promised earlier this year that the GOP would do everything possible to thwart Obama’s executive orders. “The executive amnesty language is substantially weaker than the language the House adopted this summer, and does not reject the central tenets of the President’s plan: work permits, Social Security and...

    One would naturally think it impossible that anyone would hesitate – even for an instant – to honor the woman who tackled communism head on as prime minister of Great Britain. Lady Margaret Thatcher was a principled politician who helped to foster the special relationship between Great Britain and the United States that we all benefit from today. A Senate resolution to honor Lady Thatcher was supposed to pass last night. However, per well placed sources on the Hill, Democrats have a hold on the resolution. To refuse to honor a woman of such great historical and political significance, who...

    HOUSTON July 9 (Reuters) - Anadarko Petroleum Corp (APC.N: Quote), which owns 25 percent of the ruptured well in the Gulf of Mexico, has told BP Plc (BP.L: Quote)(BP.N: Quote) that, for now, it will not pay a $272 million bill from the British oil company to cover clean-up costs. The two oil companies are in a dispute: On June 18, Anadarko said the accident, which killed 11 people and caused the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history, "was preventable and the direct result of BP's reckless decisions and action." In an email sent on Friday, Anadarko spokesman John Christiansen...

    The Great Health Care Debate of 2009 is underway on the Senate floor, and it took just a scant few minutes for the partisan skirmishing to begin in full force. The Senate majority leader, Harry Reid, Democrat of Nevada, wasted no time in laying a little legislative trap for Senator Michael B. Enzi, of Wyoming, who for the moment is piloting the Republican efforts on the Senate floor. Mr. Reid in an opening gambit asked for unanimous consent of all senators that any surpluses generated by the health care bill in the Social Security Trust Fund or in a new...

    As Barack Obama marks one year since his historic election, one of the architects of his campaign acknowledges the president has not forged the post-partisan atmosphere that he had hoped to achieve. Senior Adviser David Axelrod said the president "is not a magician. You don't with a wave of a wand make everything different." The top White House aide said while the president has "extended a hand of cooperation, some in the other party made a political decision that isn't in their interest." Speaking with CBS Radio News, Axelrod was hard-pressed to specify areas of cooperation with Republicans on any...
