Boeing & The Clintons: A “Mutually Beneficial Relationship”

Short of a corpse turning up in Chelsea’s office, the notion of a criminal or Congressional investigation into the Clinton Foundation is far-fetched. Who would conduct it? The Justice Department? The IRS? Those brave souls in the Senate? A House probe would play right into the hands of Mrs. Clinton’s…

The Transparency Crisis in Washington

Yesterday, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton testified before a House Government Oversight Committee hearing on the Freedom of Information Act, warning the panel that there is a “transparency crisis” in Washington. “Never in our history,” Tom noted, “has so much money been spent with so little accountability.” On Benghazi, the…

The Giustra File, Part Two: Sketchy Friends of Bill

In the Clinton Foundation scandal—we await a suitable “gate” appellation—Frank Giustra is rapidly emerging as the newest poster boy for Bill’s bad behavior.

Future historians will note the brazenness…

The battle for transparency and accountability in the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups grinds on. Recently, two important developments. As Hans von Spakovsky reports, a federal judge in Ohio has ordered the IRS to produce the names of almost three hundred groups it improperly targeted. This is big stuff. Read…

The Mills File

Everyone is ready for Hillary and Cheryl Mills is ready for us. News reports say Mills will take a major role in Mrs. Clinton’s presidential campaign. Mills has had many titles during her career—most notably as deputy White House counsel during Bill Clinton’s impeachment and chief of staff to Mrs.…

Alabama Indicts: Corruption or Business as Usual?

In Alabama last week—two weeks before Election Day—a special state grand jury issued a 23-count indictment against Mike Hubbard, the powerful Republican speaker of the state’s House of Representatives. Hubbard immediately proclaimed his innocence, denouncing the long-expected charges as part of “a political witch hunt.” His lawyer condemned “rogue
