At his July 5 press conference, FBI Director James Comey said a “very small number” of emails sent and received by Hillary Clinton over her private server “bore markings indicating the presence of classified information” — contradicting Clinton’s claims that she “never received nor sent any material that was marked classified.”
But now we are learning more about those emails from Comey, who testified before the House Oversight Committee on July 7, and State Department spokesman John Kirby, who addressed these emails at press briefings on July 6 and 7:
Indiana Governor Mike Pence is considered such a safe pick for Donald Trump’s running mate that there must be something seriously wrong within the campaign. They’re not “letting Donald be Donald.” Where’s Omarosa?
Y’ all remember Cathy? Her State Of The Union response where she just made stuff up?

While many law enforcement officers do good, he said, some do not. “I’ve experienced it myself.”
Former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin isn’t included in the official list of speakers for the Republican National Convention next week, and Donald Trump suggested in an interview that her absence is because she lives too far from the venue.
“She was asked,” Trump told the Washington Examiner in a phone interview on Thursday. “It’s a little bit difficult because of where she is. We love Sarah. Little bit difficult because of, you know, it’s a long ways away.”
In 1993, the mainstream media peddled the myth that Los Angeles International Airport shut its runways for nearly an hour and inconvenienced many ordinary passengers whose flights were delayed so President Bill Clinton could get a haircut. The “story” was Page One news in “The New York Times,” “The Los Angeles Times,” “The Washington Post,” “The Boston Globe,” and elsewhere.
There was only one problem: the story was complete bullshit.
