Thumbnail for 96099

Mark Halperin took aim at the Clinton Foundation’s controversial donation disclosures on Sunday morning, telling George Stephanopoulos that an assistant secretary of state would have been fired if he or she had engaged in similar practices as Hillary Clinton.

As for what we don’t yet know, Halperin said it is unclear what kinds of conversations Clinton had on her private email account about Bill Clinton‘s speeches and foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation that might have influenced her actions as the nation’s top diplomat.

U.S. mulls ransom policy for families of overseas hostages

In other words everyone is on their own. The government is too inept and indifferent to protect Americans:

The Obama administration is considering changing a U.S. policy prohibiting families of hostages held overseas from making ransom payments to abductors, according to a television report on Sunday.

“Under recommendations contained in an ongoing White House review of U.S. hostage policy, there will be absolutely zero chance … of any family member of an American-held hostage overseas ever facing jail themselves, or even the threat of prosecution, for trying to free their loved ones,” according to the report aired on ABC’s “This Week.”

The report said three senior U.S. officials told of the policy review, but it did not indicate when a decision might be made.

How do you solve a problem like Bill Clinton?

How do you solve a problem like Bill Clinton?

We knew another Clinton scandal was coming.

Earlier this week, it was reported that The New York Times and other news organizations had teamed up with Peter Schweizer, the author of Clinton Cash, a forthcoming book investigating the Clintons’ ties to foreign governments and businesses. On Thursday, we saw the first fruit of that collaboration: a big investigative report by the Times showing that from 2009 to 2013, Hillary Clinton’s State Department approved a series of acquisitions that handed Russia’s atomic energy agency control over “one-fifth of all uranium production in the United States.”

The problem? The Canadian magnates behind the deal had donated tens of millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation, while a Russian investment bank with an interest in the deal paid Bill Clinton a cool $500,000 for a single speech in Moscow.

Former CIA Director David Petraeus Sentenced To Probation For Classified Leaks

This is total farce. Chelsea Manning got 35 years for exposing military injustice. Petraeus was motivated by sex. If Edward Snowden were tried today he would be sentenced to death. The laws don’t apply to the powerful and wealthy in the United States today:

Former CIA Director David Petraeus received a sentence of two years probation and a $100,000 fine today after he admitted he leaked classified information to Paula Broadwell, his mistress.

“Today David Petraeus admitted that he removed and obtained classified and that he lied to the FBI and CIA,” according to Jill Westmoreland Rose, the acting United States Attorney for the Western District Of North Carolina. “He was sentenced to a 2-year probation and a $100,000 fine.”
