Trump signs GOP loyalty pledge

Donald TrumpDonald Trump and Reince Priebus have a deal.

Trump has pledged to support the eventual Republican nominee, whoever that may be, the Republican front-runner and the chairman of the Republican National Committee announced at a press conference on Thursday.

The deal is a winner for Trump. In the short term, it clears the way for his name to appear on primary ballots and addresses the concerns of Republican voters turned off by his initial unwillingness to pledge his fealty to the party.

Petraeus prosecutor: Clinton committed no crime

Hillary Clinton: no criminal actionsFormer attorney general Michael Mukasey recently compared the inquiry into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of State with former CIA director David Petraeus’ federal conviction for the unauthorized removal and retention of classified information.

As the former U.S. attorney for the Western District of North Carolina, I oversaw the prosecution of Gen. Petraeus, and I can say, based on the known facts, this comparison has no merit. The key element that distinguishes Secretary Clinton’s email retention practices from Petraeus’ sharing of classified information is that Petraeus knowingly engaged in unlawful conduct, and that was the basis of his criminal liability.

Top Jeb fundraisers leave campaign amid troubling signs

Jeb BushThree top Jeb Bush fundraisers abruptly parted ways with his presidential campaign on Friday, amid internal personality conflicts and questions about the strength of his candidacy, POLITICO has learned.

There are different versions of what transpired. The Florida-based fundraising consultants — Kris Money, Trey McCarley, and Debbie Aleksander — have said that they voluntarily quit the campaign and were still working with Bush's super PAC, Right to Rise Super PAC. Others said the three, who worked under the same contract, were let go because they were no longer needed for the current phase of the campaign.

Georgia County Admits To Illegally Disenfranchising Voters

Georgia admits stopping votersFulton County, Georgia admitted to illegally disenfranchising and misleading voters in the 2008 and 2012 elections in a settlement this month. For more than two dozen violations of state law — including improperly rejecting eligible ballots and sending voters to the wrong precincts — the county will pay a fine of $180,000. To make sure the problems do not continue in the future, the county has promised to spend an additional $200,000 on new training software for their poll workers.

Voting rights advocates who focus on the region, including Julie Houk with the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, praised the Secretary of State for investigating the violations but questioned whether the punishment fits the crime.

State Department officials routinely sent secrets over email

Hillary ClintonThe transmission of now-classified information across Hillary Rodham Clinton's private email is consistent with a State Department culture in which diplomats routinely sent secret material on unsecured email during the past two administrations, according to documents reviewed by The Associated Press.

Clinton's use of a home server makes her case unique and has become an issue in her front-running campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. But it's not clear whether the security breach would have been any less had she used department email. The department only systematically checks email for sensitive or classified material in response to a public records request.

With billions set to flood presidential race, campaign finance laws wilt

Campaign 2016In the four weeks after Jeb Bush announced his run for president, his campaign raised more than $11 million in donations, an impressive haul.

That figure is dwarfed, however, by the eye-popping $108 million in unlimited contributions raised through his super PACs, which began soliciting donations five months before he officially entered the race. This novel precampaign fundraising strategy allowed him to ask donors personally for precisely the kinds of no-limit contributions that federal campaign finance laws forbid candidates from accepting.
