Comey shames Republican silence on Trump's attacks against Justice Dept and Federal Bureau of Investigation

FBI Director James Comey looks on during the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence hearing on Russian actions during the 2016 election campaign on Capitol Hill in Washington DC

Neither the Foundation nor Nick Merrill, spokesman for Hillary Clinton, returned the Hill's request for comment.

FBI agents from Little Rock, Arkansas, where the Foundation began, had taken the lead in the investigation and interviewed at least one witness in the past month, the newspaper reported. Both have previously denied the allegations of trading government policy decisions for donations.

Trump, of course, has constantly beaten the drum for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to reopen an investigation into Clinton.

Beatrix von Storch called Muslim men 'barbaric and gang-raping'.
Rainer Wendt, who heads the right-leaning DpolG union, said that establishing a safe zone sends a "devastating message". Von Storch's account was also blocked by Twitter for 12 hours following her post, and the tweet has since been removed.

The DoJ is also reopening its probe into Clinton's use of a private email server while she was Secretary of State (between 2009 and 2013), The Daily Beast reported on Thursday. Justice Department officials' questions are said to include: how much classified information was sent over Clinton's server, who put that information into an unclassified environment, which investigators knew about these matters and if Clinton aides made any immunity agreements.

The new probe was prompted by President Trump's repeated calls on Twitter and elsewhere for another FBI investigation into "Crooked Hillary", the source said.

Attacking Hillary Clinton, his former Democratic opponent from the 2016 presidential election, and taking aim at his own Justice Department struck familiar tones for the new year. "No justice!" Trump tweeted early last month in a typical barb aimed at his former opponent.

Two Men Arrested In Holiday Murder Of Lesbian Couple And Children
Police announced late Friday that two arrests have been made for the killings of two children and two women earlier this week. Adding, " I'm scared to go to the corner store ". " I'm not sure if they're coming for me next ".

"I think that even that is extremely unsafe, and that the Justice Department should not be opening itself up to the perception that it is bending to political pressures from the White House", Fallon continued.

"Because you'd be in jail", Trump fired back.

At least 18 classified emails from an account belonging to Huma Abedin have been found by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on the top Hillary Clinton aide's estranged husband Anthony Weiner's laptop, a conservative group claims. But Hillary Clinton has cited the controversy surrounding Comey's October 28 letter announcing that he was reopening the investigation as politically damaging and detrimental to her presidential bid.
