    No one understands better than yours truly – except perhaps Vince Foster and scores of others (including material witnesses) who mysteriously died in and around the Clinton administration during the 1990s – the treachery of Hillary Rodham Clinton. Indeed, I fought her and her husband tooth and nail during these years and am the only lawyer ever to have obtained a court ruling that a sitting president committed a crime – a finding made by now Chief Judge Royce Lamberth in the famous Filegate case, which involved Bill and Hillary Clinton illegally obtaining FBI files on perceived adversaries to intimidate...

    Is there more to the Benghazi story than it appears? It’s hard to believe that after multiple investigations spanning the nearly four years since the attack in Libya killed four Americans, there might be any new information to be found. But the State Department now says that the FBI has found 30 deleted emails from Hillary Clinton related to the incident. Clinton turned over some 55,000 emails to the State Department after leaving office, having sorted them into work and personal emails; she says the personal emails were deleted. But emails keep popping up—some from lawsuits brought my accountability groups...

    NEW YORK – The emerging history that Hillary Clinton evaded a planned Justice Department prosecution in the 1990s for her evidently criminal activity in the Whitewater affair has now been fully documented by Washington-based Judicial Watch. That Hillary escaped jail over Whitewater adds concern that Bill Clinton’s tarmac meeting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch may have been a resumed effort to the Bill-Hillary crime partnership to keep a planned political indictment from wrecking the political foundation upon which their ill-gotten financial gains continue to depend. On Saturday, WND reported Donald Trump had tweeted his concern that, according to CNN’s unidentified...

    Hillary Clinton was a White House monster when she was first lady. That’s the assertion in a new book called “Crisis of Character” by Gary Byrne, which hits stores Tuesday. One of Hillary the Monster’s favorite targets was Vince Foster, according to Byrne, a member of the Secret Service who was stationed in the White House during the Clinton administration. Foster was the lawyer who relocated to Washington from Arkansas after his childhood pal, Bill Clinton, was elected president. “Word circulated that (Hillary Clinton) berated (Foster) mercilessly … I knew what it was like to be yelled at by superiors,...

Let's agree that when Donald Trump referred to it as "fishy," it really was one of the more outlandish things he has said. Most of us aren't in a position to dispute the forensic evidence. Furthermore, motivational questions like why Foster drove to Fort Marcy Park to shoot himself, and why he would transport the gun to the park in an oven mitt, might have answers that were personal to...

    While the State Department’s own internal probe found former Secretary Hillary Clinton violated federal recordkeeping laws, it’s not the first time she and her top aides shielded her e-mail from public disclosure while serving in a government position. As first lady, Hillary was embroiled in another scheme to bury sensitive White House e-mails, known internally as “Project X.” In 1999, as investigators looked into Whitewater, Travelgate, Filegate and other scandals involving the then-first lady, it was discovered that more than 1 million subpoenaed e-mails were mysteriously “lost” due to a “glitch” in a West Wing computer server. The massive hole...

    The following is a direct quote from Ann Coulter's 2009 book Guilty. In Whitewater, homes were offered for "sale," the purchase price to be paid in installments. But if a purchaser defaulted on a single monthly payment, there would be no foreclosure proceeding: The purchaser would automatically lose everything invested in the property--the house, the equity, and all prior payments. The small print of the contract said that if a monthly payment was not made within 30 days, all prior "payments made by the purchaser shall be considered as rent for the use of the premises."The Clintons always loudly boasted...

    The Obama administration continues to suppress at least 12 versions of a 451-page draft indictment charging Hillary Clinton with criminal misconduct in the Whitewater case, according to an index in the National Archives obtained in a Freedom of Information Act request by the Washington-based watchdog Judicial Watch. One of the indictments specifically lists “overt acts” allegedly committed by the former first lady. It follows Judicial Watch’s release on Jan. 28 of 246 pages of previously undisclosed internal memos from Ken Starr’s Office of Independent Council investigation in 1998.

    Amid all the scandals related to the Clinton family, Bill Clinton's sex scandals were supposed to be a dead letter. After all, the former president weathered impeachment proceedings in the late 1990s-in fact, Hillary Clinton's popularity soared at the time. As those events receded, Bill Clinton became one of the most popular politicians in America, a smiling, drawling avatar of the happy, carefree 1990s. There were questions about how the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign might use her husband, and whether he'd be an asset or a liability (as he was in 2008), but sex wasn't in the picture.

Marinka Peschmann, a freelance journalist and author, has been marketing a number of different buttons and bumper stickers for the “Hillary 2016: Prison or POTUS” campaign on the website One of those caught the eye of Clinton-campaign lawyers and is now no longer available.

    No one knows how Hillary Clinton will do as president, if she gets the chance. But we do know she is probably the best qualified presidential candidate ever, at least when it comes to checking off relevant boxes. This comes up today because Joseph Epstein, a writer for the Weekly Standard, claimed she would be an "affirmative-action" president. Let's go through her resume:

    Hillary Clinton‘s stature has been battered after more than a month of controversy over her fundraising and email practices, but support for her among Democrats remains strong and unshaken, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds. In just seven weeks, a period in which Mrs. Clinton formally began her presidential campaign, the share of people with a negative view of her jumped to 42% from 36% in last month’s survey, and only a quarter of registered voters said they viewed her as honest and straightforward, down from 38% last summer. But she remains highly regarded among Democrats, with 76%...

    Hillary is not going to run for president. Oh, she may put her name up. But run, as in the sense of actually campaigning, that’s another story altogether. There’s a line from the first Godfather that’s always stuck in my mind. Sollozzo (Al Lettieri), the family’s deadly enemy who has just taken an almost fatal crack at Don Corleone, bends forward and near-whispers, “Could I have gotten to him ten years ago?” That line has been running through my mind the past several weeks as the e-mail saga has unfolded: Could anybody have gotten to Hillary ten years ago? The...

    Senator Chuck Grassley has sent two letters to the State Department to ask about Huma Abedin's special government status when she was a government employee--and for information on Abedin's email use while working for the government. Abedin is a close aide to Hillary Clinton, and worked for the consulting firm Teneo (under a special government employee status) while working for Clinton. "I am writing to follow up on inquiries I have been making since June 13, 2013 and August 15, 2013 regarding the State Department’s use of Special Government Employee (SGE) designations, and in particular, what steps the Department took...

    Everyone missed what is now, in hindsight, a crystal clear signal that the White House knew that the buffalo chips were about to hit the fan; and that they are very worried.On April 21, the White House announced that Neil Eggleston would be the new counsel to the president. It didn't get much notice, but in light of recent events, it's a really big deal.

    Almost three years ago, I wrote that Hillary Clinton, has taken advantage of opportunities that fell into her lap, e.g., her playboy husband became Governor of Arkansas and then President, and used them to advantage, e.g., a Senate seat, almost the Presidency, and now SecState. As the First Lady of Arkansas, she played the role required of her: she laundered bribes for her husband. That is what Whitewater was about. That was her role at the Rose Law Firm: she would collect and launder the payoffs. She "made" a fortune in cattle futures, right? OK, when will you pay me...

    WASHINGTON, June 4— Republicans on the special Senate Whitewater committee released a report from the Federal Bureau of Investigation today showing that the fingerprints of the First Lady, Hillary Rodham Clinton, were found on records discovered in the White House family quarters two years after they were first sought by investigators. The F.B.I. report also found that the documents, copies of billing records from Mrs. Clinton's work as a lawyer in Arkansas, revealed fingerprints of five others. They were Vincent W. Foster Jr., the deputy White House counsel who committed suicide in July 1993; a personal assistant to the Clintons...

    President Barack Obama introduced his choice for attorney general Saturday as an accomplished prosecutor from New York City who will carry on a “fierce commitment to equal justice.” Obama argued at a White House ceremony that it’s “pretty hard to be more qualified” for the job of attorney general than Brooklyn federal prosecutor Loretta Lynch. “Loretta might be the only lawyer in America who battles mobsters and drug lords and terrorists, and still has the reputation for being a charming people person,” Obama said to laughter from those who packed the Roosevelt Room for the announcement. …
