    Commentary ^ | June 2020 | Eli Lake
    In their final encounter during the transition following the 2016 election, Donald Trump’s incoming national-security adviser surprised Barack Obama’s outgoing national-security adviser. Susan Rice writes in her memoir that the Michael Flynn she was dealing with had nothing in common with the firebrand she had watched leading a “lock her up” chant against Hillary Clinton at the Republican National Convention a few months earlier. Flynn, a retired general and the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, was respectful and subdued, eager for her advice. When Rice extended her hand and wished him the best of luck, Flynn asked her...

    The New York Daily News ^ | November 17, 2016 | Chris Sommerfeldt
    President-elect Donald Trump has tapped retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn to become his national security adviser, a source with knowledge of the matter has revealed. The source told NBC Wednesday evening that Trump had settled on Flynn, who was also being considered for the secretary of defense post. The Daily News could not independently confirm the report, and the Trump campaign did not immediately return a request for comment. Earlier in the evening, Trump spokesman Jason Miller said the President-elect had met with Flynn and added he would make a "fantastic addition" to the team. "He has been a companion...

    Per JustheNews, the State Department on Monday rejected Hillary Clinton’s effort to avoid depositions for herself and her former chief of staff in a lawsuit brought by the government watchdog organization Judicial Watch. The former Secretary of State and her former top aide Cheryl Mills are seeking a writ of mandamus to avoid a judge’s order requiring their testimony in an open records case involving Clinton’s use of a private email server for government business. “The government did not seek and thus does not support the extraordinary relief of mandamus due to the unique circumstances of this case,” reads the...

    Roemhild was set to appear before a judge Saturday morning, but her appearance was rescheduled for Monday at 10 a.m. after she reportedly refused to appear in court. Roemhild grew up in Connecticut and has traveled around the world as a singer. She is “very astute, very intelligent" and her actions are “very uncharacteristic of her,” a family friend said. No one was hurt from the chase and shooting. Trump was not at Mar-a-Lago at the time although he arrived hours later for the Super Bowl weekend. Word that the opera singer now faces multiple charges for endangering law enforcement...

    Hillary Clinton refused to say whether she would endorse Bernie Sanders, her 2016 rival, if he wins the Democratic nomination and offered a broad condemnation of the progressive candidate’s style of politics. “I’m not going to go there yet,” she said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter published on Tuesday in response to whether she’d back Sanders. “We’re still in a very vigorous primary season. I will say, however, that it’s not only him, it’s the culture around him. It’s his leadership team. It’s his prominent supporters. It’s his online Bernie Bros and their relentless attacks on lots of...

Rare Breed Firearms and Spikes Tactical adding a little extra awesome to my AR and that mag” Don Jr said in his caption. Trump supporters began chanting “Lock Her Up!” at Trump rallies during the 2016 presidential election. Hillary Clinton committed countless crimes throughout her career in politics. As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton used a private server in order to hide her Clinton Foundation pay-to-play...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton moderated a post-screening discussion of the Netflix documentary The Great Hack, which covers the Cambridge Analytica Facebook scandal and the larger implications data mining has on democracy, at New York's Crosby Street Hotel on Friday night. “I’m thrilled to be part of this conversation, but I think the three people sitting here are the ones you need to hear from because they’ve been in the middle of this incredibly complicated and serious threat to individual freedom, to the rule of law, to democracy,” she said at the top of the conversation. But filmmakers...

    The “lock him up” chants at game five of the World Series in Washington, D.C. on Sunday was too much for even chronic Donald Trump critics Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. On Monday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, Scarborough and Brzezinski chided those that chanted “lock him up” during the announcement Trump was in attendance at the game. However, Scarborough said Trump was the origin of those chants.

    A multiyear State Department probe of emails that were sent to former secretary of state Hillary Clinton’s private computer server concluded there was no systemic or deliberate mishandling of classified information by department employees, according to a report submitted to Congress this month. The report appears to represent a final and anticlimactic chapter in a controversy that overshadowed the 2016 presidential campaign and exposed Clinton to fierce criticism that she later cited as a major factor in her loss to President Trump. In the end, State Department investigators found 38 current or former employees “culpable” of violating security procedures —...

    In reviewing what the agreements uncovered, keep in mind that Cheryl Mills was Secretary Clinton's Chief of Staff at the State Department and then bizarrely, she subsequently served as Clinton’s attorney, representing her in the email scandal. Heather Samuelson worked on Hillary Clinton's 2008 campaign, and then became a Senior Advisor to her at the State Department, as well as the White House liaison. Somehow, she also became one of Clinton's personal attorneys during the email scandal. The immunity agreements issued by the government, were crafted so that the agencies could extract information from the parties, despite the fact that...

    All but four of the 30,490 emails from Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized email server were forwarded to a private Google email address featuring the name of a Chinese company, according to documents released on Aug. 15. Virtually every email which was sent to and received on the Clinton server was forwarded to “carterheavyindustries@gmail.com,” the documents (pdf) show. Frank Rucker, the intelligence community inspector general (ICIG) investigator who spotted the anomaly, searched Google for “Carter Heavy Industries” and came up with results for Shandong Carter Heavy Industry Co., Ltd, a Chinese manufacturer of excavators and heavy machinery, according to the documents.

    After President Trump mentioned 2016 rival Hillary Clinton at a reelection campaign rally in Cincinnati, the crowd broke into a chant of "lock her up." Trump mentioned his former opponent and her use of the term "deplorable" to describe a segment of Trump supporters. "Do you remember when Hillary used the word 'deplorable'?" he said. "Deplorable was not a good day for Hillary. Crooked Hillary. She is a crooked one," he said, adding, "She is crooked." After this, the crowd began to chant "lock her up," a refrain that supporters of the president commonly used during the 2016 election.

    Hillary Clinton said Wednesday that the struggles between President Donald Trump's administration and the U.S. House will show "whether it's the rule of law or the rule of Trump" that the courts and Republicans obey. Speaking at a wide-ranging event held at Dartmouth College, the former U.S. secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee said the Trump administration's recent defiance of subpoenas and claim of executive authority in its power struggle with Congress will lead to "big court fights." Those fights, Clinton said, will most likely find their way to the Supreme Court. "We'll see whether it's the rule...

As both the 42nd president and the former secretary of state wrap up their North American speaking tour, they continue to address the circumstances surrounding Clinton's electoral defeat in 2016. "You can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you,"...
