Hillary Clinton Omitted One Key Email From The State Department Review

Before turning over emails to the State Department for review and potential public release, Hillary Clinton and her lawyers withheld thousands of emails Clinton said were clearly personal, such as those involving what Clinton described as "planning Chelsea's wedding or my mother's funeral arrangements, condolence notes to friends as well as yoga routines, family vacations." As it turns out, Clinton missed a category that was also withheld that could potentially be referred to as "Communications about work related emails sent from my personal server that are being blocked by the State Department"

A Perfect Recipe For Mayhem

At a most troubled moment in history, both major political parties appear set to nominate time-bomb candidates for president with a fair percentage chance of blowing up their own campaigns and the parties themselves. Remember, too, the Black Lives Matter movement and its affiliates promised months ago to bring a disruptive presence to both conventions.

Paul Ryan Slams "Preposterous" Decision To Censor Shooter's 911 Transcripts

"Selectively editing this transcript is preposterous. We know the shooter was a radical Islamist extremist inspired by ISIS. We also know he intentionally targeted the LGBT community. The administration should release the full, unredacted transcript so the public is clear-eyed about who did this and why."
