    By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Sunday, May 10, 2015

    A federal judge has reopened an open-records case trying to pry loose some of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s emails, marking the first time a court has taken action on the email scandal.

    Judge Reggie B. Walton agreed Friday to a joint request by the State Department and Judicial Watch, which sued in 2012 to get a look at some of Mrs. Clinton’s documents concerning a public relations push.

    Both sides agreed that the revelation that Mrs. Clinton had kept her own email server separate from the government, and exclusively used her own email account created on that server, meant that she had shielded her messages from valid open-records requests.

    Now that she has belatedly turned some emails over, the government offered — and Judge Walton confirmed in his ruling — that the agency should search them all to see whether any should have been released to Judicial Watch.

    “This is the first case that’s been reopened,” Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, said Friday. “It’s a significant development. It points to the fraud by this administration and Mrs. Clinton.”

    Judicial Watch has filed a series of open-records requests seeking State Department emails and, when the administration failed to comply, has gone to court to force them. Just last week Judicial Watch filed a new batch of eight lawsuits trying to shake loose some of the secret emails, and said that was just the first round.

    The State Department said it doesn’t comment on open-records lawsuits.

    Publicly, the department has struggled to handle the inquiries over Mrs. Clinton’s emails.

    Officials didn’t acknowledge that there were missing emails until prodded by the House committee investigating the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya. After that prod, the department asked Mrs. Clinton to turn over emails that contained government business.

    She provided about 30,000 emails, but said she discarded another 32,000 she deemed weren’t government business, and then wiped the server. She has refused requests by the Benghazi inquiry chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy, South Carolina Republican, to turn the server over to a neutral third party.

    On Friday, Mr. Gowdy released an interim report detailing his first year of investigation, citing “obstacles and frustrations” in dealing with the administration. He said they have talked with new witnesses who hadn’t been interviewed by any other Benghazi probe, and had unearthed documents that haven’t been part of other investigations.

    But he said Mrs. Clinton’s emails remain a large question mark, and the State Department still hasn’t turned over emails from her senior staff.

    “The State Department has told the committee that it cannot certify that it has turned over all documents responsive to the committee’s request regarding the former secretary’s emails,” Mr. Gowdy said in his report.

    Mr. Gowdy also hinted that Congress’s investigative powers may be limited when it comes to trying to force a president and his team to come clean.

    “The legislative branch’s constitutional toolbox seems inadequate to uphold our task in seeking the truth,” Mr. Gowdy said, pointing to the administration’s unwillingness to serve subpoenas on itself, neutering much of Congress’s investigative power.

    Mr. Fitton said that’s why his group’s lawsuits are so critical, saying Congress’s hands are tied and the Justice Department hasn’t committed to conduct an investigation of another part of the Obama administration.

    “It’s going to be independent actions by JW at this point,” Mr. Fitton said. “This is how anything is going to break loose.”

    CHINESE GOVERNMENT PAID BILL CLINTON LUCRATIVE SPEAKING FEE AS SEC. STATE HILLARY MADE ‘ASIA PIVOT’





    by ALEXANDER MARLOW11 May 2015

    Former President Bill Clinton bagged a $200,000 speaking fee on October 21, 2011, paid for by Chinese government entities just ten days after then-Sec. of State Hillary Clinton heralded a “pivot to Asia” in U.S. policy.

    The stunning revelation is just one of many in the new book, Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich.

    Correspondence between Bill Clinton’s office and Hillary Clinton’s State Department reveals that among the $200,000 speech’s cosponsors were a coalition of Chinese government entities and organizations, including one “launched and chaired by an official from the Chinese Ministry of Information Industry” known as the China Electronic Commerce Association, reports Clinton Cash. Clinton’s speech took place at the innocuously-named Silicon Valley Information Business Alliance in Santa Clara, California.

    Bill Clinton also hauled in $550,000 for a Shanghai appearance underwritten by Chinese billionaire and outspoken Chinese nationalist Yan Jiehe. Known as “China’s baddest billionaire builder,” Clinton Cash reports that Yan is “perhaps most famous in China for lopping off and flattening seven hundred mountaintops for a construction project.” The Chinese billionaire calls Bill Clinton a “close friend.”

    Whether the Clintons made it clear to the Obama administration that Bill Clinton’s $200,000 would be underwritten by the Chinese government as Hillary Clinton touted a “pivot to Asia” in U.S. policy is presently unclear.

    On Thursday, the U.S. State Department announced it “will not review the breaches of the 2008 ethics agreement Hillary Clinton signed in order to become secretary of state after her family’s charities admitted in March that they had not complied,” reports Reuters.

    The best way to tamp down rumor controversy is to not feed it. What she is doing is not starving it, provide the info and move on. Confronting truth is usually less hurtful that confronting rumor and supposition. .

    Hillary better hope that female voters will ignore her contempt for her responsibility to the American people.

    This is the person who, when referring to the Benghazi attacks, said at a Senate committee
    hearing, "Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided they'd go kill some Americans. What difference - at this point, what difference does it make?"
    Well, Hillary Clinton was the Secretary of State when the attacks occurred on September 11, 2012. In January of 2014, we learned that the State Department ignored warnings and requests for increased security by the American post in Benghazi.
