State Dept. finds no ‘systemic’ classified violation in Hillary Clinton private-server emails

State Dept. finds no violations in Clinton use of email server

A State Department investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email account found no widespread effort by her aides or other staffers to mishandle classified information.

The three-year-long investigation by State’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security concluded that 38 individuals committed a total of 91 security violations involving emails sent to or from Clinton’s private server.

However, a report on the probe finalized last month seemed to dismiss the notion that the system was routinely used to discuss matters that diplomats or Clinton aides knew required handling through secure channels.


Adm. William McRaven: Our Republic Is Under Attack From the President

NY Times editorial by Adm. William H. McRaven

Last week I attended two memorable events that reminded me why we care so very much about this nation and also why our future may be in peril.

The first was a change of command ceremony for a storied Army unit in which one general officer passed authority to another. The second event was an annual gala for the Office of Strategic Services (O.S.S.) Society that recognizes past and present members of the intelligence and Special Operations community for their heroism and sacrifice to the nation. What struck me was the stark contrast between the words and deeds heralded at those events — and the words and deeds emanating from the White House.

On the parade field at Fort Bragg, N.C., where tens of thousands of soldiers have marched either preparing to go to war or returning from it, the two generals, highly decorated, impeccably dressed, cleareyed and strong of character, were humbled by the moment.

TVNL Comment: This is a MUST READ. If you are not afraid now, you never will be.


Rick Perry: Trump energy secretary reportedly resigns amid Ukraine scandal

Rick Perry to resign amid Ukraine scandalEnergy Secretary Rick Perry notified President Donald Trump that he plans to resign from his post, two administration officials confirmed to White House reporters on Thursday.

Asked about a Bloomberg report indicating that Perry notified the President of his impending resignation in writing while Trump was aboard Air Force One on Thursday, White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley told CNN: "Can't wave you off."
Perry has found himself as one of the players in the middle of the controversy stemming from a whistleblower's allegation that Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky to investigate former vice president and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, and that the White House attempted to cover up the conversation. There is no evidence of wrongdoing in Ukraine by either Biden.

White House Chief of Staff Admits Trump Demanded Quid Pro Quo From Ukraine

Mulvaney admits quid pro quo with Ukraine

At a surprise press conference on Thursday, acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney admitted that Donald Trump withheld congressionally appropriated military aid from Ukraine this summer in part because he was upset that the country had not yet opened an investigation into the baseless right-wing theory that Ukraine helped the Democratic National Committee frame Russia for hacking Democratic email accounts in 2016.

Here are Mulvaney’s exact words:

MULVANEY: Did he also mention to me in passing the corruption related to the DNC server? Absolutely. No question about that. That’s it, and that’s why we held up the money.

REPORTER: So the demand for an investigation into the Democrats was part of the reason that he was ordered to withhold funding to Ukraine?

MULVANEY: The look back to what happened in 2016 certainly was part of the thing that he was worried about in corruption with that nation. And that is absolutely appropriate.


US to hold next year's G-7 summit at Trump National Doral resort in Miami area

Trump Doral property to host G7The United States plans to host next year's Group of Seven, or G-7, summit at the president’s Trump National Doral Miami resort, White House acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney announced Thursday.

The selection of a resort owned by the president's own company is certain to draw criticism from Democrats in Congress who have criticized Trump's mixing of personal and official business. In August, when reports first emerged that the Doral, Florida, club could host next year's summit, and Trump voiced support for the idea, the House Judiciary Committee said it would investigate the proposal.

Asked about the reports, Trump told reporters that holding the summit in Miami would be "really fantastic" and that his club would be ideal because it was near Miami's international airport and because each country could have its own "bungalow."



Trump directed me to work with Giuliani to push Ukraine on investigations: Sondland

Gordon Sondland

The U.S. ambassador to the European Union will tell Congress that President Donald Trump directed him and others to work with his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani to push Ukraine to announce investigations, but that he was in the dark on the extent of Giuliani's efforts and the political motive behind it, according to his opening statement obtained by ABC News.

Gordon Sondland, the Trump mega donor turned diplomat, has emerged as a central character in the impeachment inquiry led by three House committees for the role he played in leading Ukraine policy, at times outside official government channels.

While he denied in a September text message already obtained by Congress that there were "quid pro quo's of any kind," Sondland will tell committee staff and lawmakers Thursday that Ukraine announcing "anti-corruption" investigations "was one of the pre-conditions for securing a White House meeting with President [Volodymyr] Zelenskiy," the country's new president eager for U.S. support.



4th defendant in federal case involving Rudy Giuliani associates arrested

David Correia arrested

A fourth defendant in the federal campaign finance case involving two associates of Rudy Giuliani, the president's personal attorney, was arrested in New York on Wednesday.

David Correia, an American businessman, was taken into custody at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport. Correia is one of four men charged in an indictment, which also targeted Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, a pair of Ukrainian businessmen with extensive business ties to Giuliani.

Last week, ABC News reported the business relationship between Giuliani and the men charged in the alleged campaign finance scheme is a subject of the ongoing criminal investigation being conducted by federal authorities in New York, according to two sources familiar with the matter.
