Clinton State Dept. Blew $18.5 Mil to Renovate Unused Afghan Jail

White House Uses Clinton Defense

A Congressional oversight committee is investigating a secret electronic mail system for high-ranking White House officials that could violate a federal act requiring preservation and subsequent public disclosure of all official government business.

Gowdy’s Game Plan

…Independent Panel on Best Practices convened after the Benghazi attacks—three middle-aged white guys from the State Department. Could anything be more boring? Across the land—or at least across Washington—the disappointment among star-spangled partisans on both sides of the aisle was palpable. No Crazytown thunderbolts from wild-eyed conservatives? No discussion of Hillary Clinton, stand down, or arms supplies to Syria? Privately, the Right grumbled that Gowdy was in over his head….

Oil-for-Food Money Could Be Traced to Clintons

Clinton pardoned him in 2001. Rich’s ex-wife Denise allegedly “facilitated” Rich’s pardon by donating nearly $1 million to Democratic causes, including $70,000 to Hillary Clinton’s Senate campaign and $450,000 to the Clinton Presidential library fund.

So Long and Thanks for All the Reports

The office of the Independent Counsel has been shut down but its juicy and scathing reports from the Bill Clinton administration will always be around.
