Hillary Clinton setup a private mail account then CC'd another private mail account hosted by Blackberry







One might assume that with such a high level of cooperation, State would have long ago handed over all relevant documents. But that is apparently not the case.

The State Department has informed the House Select Committee on Benghazi that it is withholding "a small number" of documents from investigators on the basis of "important executive branch institutional interests." The statement, made in a letter from Assistant Secretary of State Julia Frifield to committee chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy, amounts to a de facto claim of some form of executive branch privilege.

Frifield made the claim in a letter turning over 3,600 pages of Benghazi-related documents from three current and former administration officials: Susan Rice, Jake Sullivan, and Cheryl Mills. Rice, a former United Nations ambassador, is now national security adviser, while Sullivan and Mills are close aides to Hillary Clinton who worked at the department when she was secretary of state.

The State Department has long insisted that it is fully cooperating with lawmakers investigating the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack. One might assume that with such a high level of cooperation, State would have long ago handed over all relevant documents. But that is apparently not the case.

End Of Discussion

Agree or disagree, from flags to gay marriage, some folks want you to keep it to yourself. The unbridled furor of the Left and its vast echo chamber is now full-throated, and demanding – demanding! – that any and all who disagree with them publicly to just . . . SHUT UP!

They want an . . . END OF DISCUSSION. And probably a lot more.

Was there ever a more timely book, then, than the new acclaimed work by Mary Katharine Ham and Guy Benson, END OF DISCUSSION: How the Left's Outrage Industry Shuts Down Debate, Manipulates Voters, and Makes America Less Free (and Fun)?

Why are Ben Carson and Donald Trump Rising? It's Obvious

Ben Carson and Donald Trump are seemingly opposites, Carson is understated and casual, Trump is bellicose and over the top, but both have worked in professions where you need a good sense of people and both men are good at communicating their message. They're better at it than even the good conservative candidates. That doesn't mean they're electable, but it means they'll have an easier time standing out of a crowd.

Most Americans hate public speaking. Carson and Trump are good at it in their own ways. And they both appear unrehearsed, which is a plus in an era of over-rehearsed candidates.

Instead of complaining about them, conservatives ought to learn from them.

The Supreme Court has declined to hear a case allowing states to require proof of citizenship for those applying to vote in federal elections, effectively upholding a lower court ruling against Kansas and Arizona.

The latest mystery over Hillary's missing e-mails

Now this was predictable: The State Department on Thursday said Hillary Clinton failed to turn over 15 work-related e-mails from her private server, despite claiming she’d handed over everything.
Which raises the troubling question: How many more did she also, uh, “miss”?

The United States supported the secret supply of weapons to Libyan rebels while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State according to federal court documents obtained by Fox News.

In a sworn declaration to the District Court of Arizona May 5th 2015, a career CIA officer David Manners said, "It was then, and remains now, my opinion that the United States did participate, directly or indirectly, in the supply of weapons to the Libyan Transitional National Council." The timing matters because in the Spring of 2011 the Libyan opposition was not formally recognized, and the direct supply of arms was not authorized. At that time, the CIA Director was David Petraeus....

In her only congressional testimony to date on Benghazi in January 2013, Mrs. Clinton was asked by Republican Senator Rand Paul about the flow of weapons.

"I will see what information is available," then Secretary Clinton ‎responded. "I don't have any information on that."

Two weeks after her testimony, a letter from the State Department was sent to Senator Paul skirting his question and stated that the US government “is not involved in any transfer of weapons from Libya to Turkey.” ◼ (SENATOR PAUL LETTER)
