Clinton will finally turn over email server to Justice Department

Hillary Clinton will turn over her private email server and a backup thumb drive to the Justice Department, her spokesman confirmed Tuesday.

The news comes just hours after the Intelligence Community Inspector General told Congress that her email server contained emails that have now been classified “top secret.”

Spokesman Nick Merrill said Clinton “pledged to cooperate with the government’s security inquiry.”

“She directed her team to give her email server that was used during her tenure as Secretary to the Department of Justice, as well as a thumb drive containing copies of her emails already provided to the State Department,” Merrill said in a statement provided to The Hill.

“If there are more questions, we will continue to address them.”

The statement added that Clinton has worked with State to “ensure that her emails are stored in a safe and secure manner.”

While Clinton turned over the emails she deemed work-related, she deleted a similar amount that her team said were strictly personal.

Clinton’s use of her personal email server has dogged her since even before she entered the presidential race, and some Democrats have worried that it has contributed to her fledgling poll numbers on trustworthiness.

July polling from the swing states of Colorado, Iowa, and Virginia found that the majority of voters in all three states didn’t find her honest or trustworthy. And national polls from June found the same trend.

That led to significant criticism from Republicans, specifically House Benghazi Committee chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), who have called on Clinton to turn over her server to ensure that she didn’t delete any emails that should have been turned over.


Clinton will turn over email server to Justice Department Clinton and her team have bucked those repeated calls to relinquish control of her email server, asserting that she had already turned over any email that could be related to her role as secretary of State.

“We don’t think we have to do that,” Jennifer Palmieri, Clinton’s communications director, said in July on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” when asked whether Clinton needs to turn the server over to show that she’s trustworthy.

It is unclear whether those deleted emails can be retrieved from the server.

Merrill emphasized that Clinton has already provided the State Department 55,000 pages of work emails in an initial inquiry.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) released two pages of the memo sent to a handful of members of Congress that confirmed the Intelligence Community Inspector General’s finding.

“This information revealed by the inspector general makes it even more important that the FBI and the State Department secure these documents,” he said.

“To date, the two agencies most critical to securing this information have failed to assure the American people that they are taking the necessary steps to protect America’s national security interests.”

The State Department is also looking into Clinton’s top aides to learn whether any other unclassified information is unaccounted for, McClatchy reported.

“We will follow the facts wherever they lead, to include former aides and associates, as appropriate,” said Douglas Welty, a spokesman for the State Department’s inspector general.

In July, The Wall Street Journal reported that the Intelligence Community’s Inspector General uncovered at least four classified emails from a small batch of 40. That set off a new round of criticism from Republicans and calls for her to turn her server over to an independent arbiter.

I seriously do know how we are to trust this woman after she openly deleted emails after originally denying they existed then openly deleting more after she was told not to. If I were to do that I would be charged with destruction of evidence.


Rosie Perez QUITS The View early in heated spat with ABC execs


During a Hot Topics segment about Donald Trump’s poll numbers with Latinos, Kelly Osbourne infuriated Rosie Perez 

Kelly asked: ‘If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?’

She then became hysterical during a commercial break and wept over fears she’ll now be seen as a racist

ABC execs cornered Rosie during the break and demanded she apologize to Kelly in the last segment of the live broadcast 

At the end of the show, Rosie bolted to her dressing room and had no further interaction with Kelly, a source told Daily Mail Online

ABC execs argued with Rosie and forced her to tweet an apology to Kelly

Rosie declared she was ‘done with this f****** show’ and told the executives ‘kiss my a**’ before storming out

She did not show up for Wednesday and Thursday’s live broadcasts


Rosie Perez canceled her last appearances on The View after being forced to apologize to Kelly Osbourne for her anger at her co-star’s racist remark about Latinos, Daily Mail Online can reveal exclusively today.

Rosie refused to turn up for her two, final live shows last week and skipped several, pre-taped appearances after having an intense blow-up with ABC executives over Kelly’s on-air comment.

Kelly, 30, caused outrage after asking: ‘If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?’ during a Hot Topics segment about Donald Trump’s poll numbers within the community last Tuesday.

A silence fell over the studio audience as other co-hosts were clearly taken aback. After a pause, Rosie, who has Puerto Rican heritage, mumbled: ‘Oh, that’s not… oh, no!’ and shook her head in disbelief.


The View’s Raven-Symone then told Kelly: ‘There’s more jobs than that he can use them for.’

Sensing things were tense, The Fashion Police host attempted to clarify: ‘In a sense, you know what I mean? In L.A. they always…’ But before she could finish, Rosie had calmed enough to finally check her.

‘Latinos are not the only people doing that,’ explained Rosie, looking straight at Kelly.

Kelly backtracked and tried to elaborate. ‘I didn’t mean it like that! Come on, I would never mean it like that. I’m not part of this argument,” she contested.

As the tension built, moderator Whoopi Goldberg stepped back in and tried to take control of the segment, before ultimately going to commercial break.

When the cameras cut away, the daughter of rock legend Ozzy Osbourne and The Talk co-host Sharon Osbourne burst into tears. ‘Everyone is going to think I’m racist. I can’t believe this,’ she cried, as producers of the show and her personal handlers ran to her side.

At the time, ABC execs cornered Rosie during the break and demanded she apologize to Kelly in the last segment of the live broadcast


The show resumed and the topic wasn’t addressed again until the end of the show. During the last segment, Rosie started with: ‘I want to apologize to this young woman once again for being very sensitive.’

Kelly asked: ‘Why? You had every right.’

Rosie continued: ‘Kelly Osbourne is on our side and I was sensitive and my disdain should go to only Donald Trump. Sorry darling.’

Kelly hugged her and said: ‘No need to apologize to me, I love you Rosie!’

At the end of the show, Rosie, 50, bolted to her dressing room and had no further interaction with Kelly, who broke down.

Daily Mail Online has learned that ABC executives then gathered in Rosie’s room and demanded that she tweet an apology to her co-star.

She told them: ‘I’ve already done more than enough by apologizing on air,’ before a loud argument took place.


The source added: ‘She and the ABC executives had it out. She was yelling at them at the top of her lungs that their demands were disrespectful.

‘They were telling her that she better do exactly as they said. It was an ugly scene and Rosie was crying uncontrollably and outraged.’

Rosie posted a tweet on her official account, which read: ‘My apologies @KellyOsbourne, I took your point wrong-#Trump #Latinos. My bad. Your heart is so pure & righteous. I adore you. @TheView.’

After the Twitter post, Rosie then declared that she was ‘done with this f****** show’ and told the executives ‘to kiss her a**’ before storming out of the building and vowing never to return to ‘this s***hole of a place!’

Perez had announced last month that she was leaving the show.

But by bowing to ABC’s demands and apologizing to Kelly last week, the presenter appeared to infuriate the Latino community.

Her Twitter account was flooded with backlash after she backtracked on her on-air stance as many followers asked The View star, ‘why are you apologizing?’

The following day, the 50-year-old took to Twitter to clarify her apology in a series of posts.


She wrote: ‘I tweeted at #KellyOsbourne in an effort to help keep her from spiraling after her unfortunate comment. I went overboard with my apology- #mybad. But I don’t apologize for speaking up and calling her on it-mistake or not, it was offensive. And please don’t ever question my support for mi gente… Ever.’

But Rosie had nothing to lose with her explosive exit from The View, according to the source.

‘ABC had already fired her technically when they didn’t renew her contract. She had nothing left to lose by not coming back.

‘She may have missed a few days pay, but to walk away with her dignity is likely far more important for Rosie in this situation.’

ABC appeared to be working hard to erase the uncomfortable incident from viewers’ memories. The episode has been taken down from the network’s website and removed from streaming service Hulu. Several clips of the show also have been removed from YouTube.

Rosie was not part of a taped show which aired on Monday with Whoopi Goldberg, Michelle Collins, Raven-Symone and Nicolle Wallace.

The dramatic end to her tenure on The View ends perhaps the most turbulent and tumultuous season in the history of the troubled talk show since it was created by Barbara Walters 18 years ago.

A stupid show for stupid people to appear on and I do not know how it could have stayed on so long.

Do not forget this is drama town and any news that gets people talking about it is good news. They must be very pleased with all this attention right now……..

Besides that I would love to kiss Rosie Perez’s ass personally…….

 

 

Dipshit of the day: Another Asshole Judge

Summary: A judge ordered a couple to get married or else a young man would face jail time for an assault charge.


According to 19ActionNews.com, a Smith County, Texas judge issued a different kind of ruling last month. Josten Brundy was ordered to marry Elizabeth Jaynes, his 19-year old girlfriend, as part of his probation. The judge also ordered him to write Bible verses and receive counseling.

The case centered on a February altercation between Bundy and Jaynes’ ex-boyfriend. Bundy recalled, “[The ex-boyfriend] had been saying disrespectful things about Elizabeth, so I challenged him to a fight. He stepped in and I felt like it was on and I hit him in the jaw twice.” Bundy said that the ex-boyfriend did not need medical attention, but that he did press assault charges. Bundy said, “I took matters into my own hands and I know that’s wrong. I know I was raised better, but it happened.”

Court transcripts reveal that Judge Randall Rogers asked Bundy about the fight, and said, “Is she worth it?” Bundy said that the responded, “I said, well to be honest sir, I was raised with four sisters and if any man was talking to a woman like that, I’d probably do the same thing.” The judge then asked if Bund was married to Jaynes and then stated, “You know, as a part of my probation, you’re going to have to marry her…within 30 days.” If Bundy decided not to do probation, he would have to serve 15 days in jail. A drug smuggler was unable to remove heroin she had hidden in her “private area.” Bundy commented, “He offered me fifteen days in jail and that would have been fine and I asked if I could call my job [to let them know]. The judge told me ‘Nope, that’s not how this works.'” Jaynes said she was embarrassed by the judge’s order. “My face was so red, people behind be were laughing. [The judge] made me stand up in court.” The couple was afraid that Bundy would lose his job if he served two weeks in jail, so they applied for a marriage license and scheduled a wedding date with the justice of the peace. Jaynes said, “It just felt like we weren’t going to be able to have the wedding we wanted. It was just going to be kind of pieced together, I didn’t even have a white dress.” Jaynes added, “I used to watch Say Yes to the Dress and all those shows and all the dresses and think about what kind of dress I would have. I would have liked a spring wedding when it’s not too hot and hot too cold.” Bundy said that the couple began talking about marriage about six months after they started dating. He recalled, “We were strung over each other and really were in love. [At our wedding] I would have worn a black tux with some yellow under it because I’m a Steelers fan.”

However, the couple only had 18 days to put together a wedding ceremony. Some of their closest relatives were unable to attend. Bundy said, “My father didn’t get to go, and that really bothers me, I know he would have liked to be there. None of my sisters got to show up, it was such short notice, I couldn’t get it together.” An employee was demoted for a comment about a sex toy purchase. Kenneth Jaynes, Elizabeth’s father, was angry at the ruling. “[I felt] anger; I was mad. [The judge] can’t do this by court ordering somebody to be married. I contacted a couple of lawyers but they told me someone was trying to pull my leg…that judges don’t court order somebody to get married.” Constitutional law attorney Blake Bailey said that ordering a couple to marry is illegal. He said, “To say you’re not going to be criminally punished if you get married is way out of left field. It sounds like the old days of shotgun weddings, but not even the judge is capable of enforcing, what he thinks is best for some people in his court.” Bailey Although Bundy and Jaynes do not regret getting married, they do regret not having the wedding they dreamed of. Jaynes said, “What if we [had said to the judge] we don’t’ want to get married right now and we’re not ready? Is he going to go to jail? It scared us, a little bit.” According to Newsmax, Jaynes also said, “We live paycheck to paycheck. If he had gone to jail, I wouldn’t have been able to make the rent by myself.”

Bailey said the sentence would have probably been struck down if it had been appealed.

Bundy and Jaynes do plan to have a larger ceremony in the future when they can afford it.

Another Idiot in a robe who abused his authority, Judges, when on the bench, Are immune from any liability or accountability and that is why we see these happening.

Embarrassing a young couple into marriage, in a short period of time, causing family members to miss the wedding, or he goes to jail. In addition he is ordered to read bible verses and what if that is against any personal belief or faith he may have. Anybody hear of separation of church and state?

And all this happened because he defended his girlfriend against a former boyfriend bad mouthing her, as most of us would have done the same thing. In addition it sounds like the boyfriend was an instigator in the incident.

Personally I would have told the judge to go FUCK himself…….

Chief fires Texas officer who killed unarmed 19-year-old

Chief fires Texas officer who killed unarmed 19-year-old

A police officer who killed an unarmed college football player during a suspected burglary at a Texas car dealership was fired Tuesday for making mistakes that the city’s police chief said caused a deadly confrontation that put him and other officers in danger.

Arlington officer Brad Miller, 49, could also face criminal charges once police complete their investigation, Police Chief Will Johnson said.

Called to the scene of a suspected burglary early Friday morning, Miller pursued 19-year-old Christian Taylor through the broken glass doors of a car dealership showroom without telling his supervising officer, Johnson said.

Instead of helping to set up a perimeter around the showroom, Miller confronted Taylor and ordered him to get down on the ground, Johnson said. Taylor did not comply. Instead, he began “actively advancing toward Officer Miller,” Johnson said.

Miller’s field training officer, who had followed Miller into the showroom, drew his own Taser. The training officer heard a single pop of what he thought was Miller’s Taser, but Miller actually had drawn his service weapon and fired it at Taylor, who is believed to have been 7 to 10 feet away from the officer, Johnson said. After Taylor continued to approach, Miller fired his gun three more times.

“This is an extraordinarily difficult case,” Johnson said. “Decisions were made that have catastrophic outcomes.”

An attorney for Miller did not have an immediate comment on Johnson’s announcement. Taylor’s family did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Miller’s firing.

Taylor’s death came two days before the anniversary of the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed, black 18-year-old who was fatally shot by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri.

Taylor, who was black, was a graduate of an Arlington high school and a football player at Angelo State University in West Texas. Miller is white.

There is no video of the shooting itself, though security camera footage from Classic Buick GMC dealership’s parking lots shows Taylor walking around and damaging some vehicles.

Before his final confrontation with Miller, Taylor allegedly held up a set of car keys and told another officer that he intended to steal a car, Johnson said. He had driven a vehicle through the glass front doors of the showroom and, after officers arrived, was slamming his body into the side of a different part of the building to try to escape, the chief said.

“It is clear from the facts obtained that Mr. Taylor was non-compliant with police demands,” Johnson said.

But the chief said he ultimately decided Miller’s mistakes required his firing. While he said he had “serious concerns” about Miller’s use of deadly force, Johnson said it would be up to a grand jury to decide whether Miller’s actions were criminal.

Miller joined the police department in September and graduated from the city police academy earlier this year.

He was still undergoing field training and assigned to a more senior officer, though he was a licensed police officer authorized to carry a weapon. Police have previously said that he had never fired his weapon in the line of duty before.

But Johnson stressed that officers in training “have the skills, the decision-making process, the authority” to act correctly in the field.

Police said Miller cannot appeal his firing because he was a probationary employee.

While the FBI’s Dallas field office said Monday that it was deferring any investigation to local authorities, Johnson said he was in contact with FBI officials about the case.

“Although the investigation is not over, my hope is that the information shared today can assist in the healing process,” Johnson said. “Some communities and our nation have been torn apart by similar challenges.”

This shithead was bouncing all over cars, Driving through plate glass windows, and telling the officers he was going to commit more felonies. HELLO he drew attention to himself and put himself in a position for a confrontation with the police.

Maybe suicide by cop?

I would also like to know more about the officer, He was 49 years old and just hired? That is very old for the police game to be starting out. What is his background?

But the bottom line is that if this was a white teenage football player they would be blaming him for something like “roid rage” because only “Black lives matter.”
