Political fallout from FBI document releases Today, for the first time, President Obama spoke publicly about the FBI Director James Comey's latest comments on Hillary Clinton's email troubles. "There is a norm that when there are investigations we don't operate on innuendo, we don't operate on incomplete information, we don't operate on leaks." The President made his comments during an interview with NowThisNews . Rosalind Helderman, political reporter for the Washington Post , has an update.
Clinton Cash: Corruption or Conspiracy? President Bill Clinton survived potential scandals, including "Whitewater," "Travelgate" and "Filegate" because no wrongdoing was ever proven. Now, as Hillary Clinton runs for the White House on her own, the family's Global Foundation is making news of a similar kind. It's accused of selling influence for tens of millions of dollars under the cover of doing "good works" all over the world. The latest potential scandal facing the Clinton family originates in a book called Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich . Even before its recent publication, stories based on it have been running in newspapers, including the New York Times and the Washington Post . Once again, the attackers admit that no wrongdoing's been proven. Will the smell of scandal be enough damage the latest Clinton campaign?
Who Wants to Read Hillary Clinton's Emails? Last night, Hillary Clinton tweeted, " I want the public to see my email ." The State Department is already reviewing 50,000 pages of her messages, and a committee of Congress has issued subpoenas. It's all fallout from this week's revelation that, while she was Secretary of State, she used a private account exclusively for official business. Rosalind Helderman, who reports on politics for the Washington Post , has more on the story.
