“A federal judge has ordered the State Department to search for any additional Benghazi-related emails then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may have sent or received from aides Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills or Jake Sullivan at their state.gov addresses. Judge Amit Mehta, who was nominated by former President Barack Obama, ruled that the State Department should search the state.gov emails as well, noting ‘this matter is a far cry from a typical FOIA case. Secretary Clinton used a private email server, located in her home, to transmit and receive work-related communications during her tenure as secretary of state.’ The judge has ordered a status report by September 22. The order, signed Tuesday, came after conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch’s lawsuit for Benghazi emails.” (08/10/17)


Is the Trump-Russia scandal the new Benghazi?

“Donald Trump’s friendliness with Russia (and his refusal to condemn its interference in the 2016 election in unequivocal terms) has become the single most important issue of the transition period. Earlier this week, CNN and BuzzFeed published explosive reports on an unverified intelligence dossier alleging that Russia claimed to have compromising information about Trump; that members of Trump’s inner circle were in contact with Russian intelligence during the campaign; and that Trump made a quid pro quo deal with Russia. Trump’s presidency appeared to hang in the balance, even before it had begun. If some of these allegations were true, they could be grounds for impeachment.” [editor’s note: It really is hilarious to watch these “progressive” pundits pause from their normal collectivist-megastate worship, take a breath, and become Cold War neocons about the Evil Empire #Deflategate_II #neoMcCarthyism – SAT] (01/13/17)
