"It's not only Pakistan that we pay billions of dollars to for nothing, but also many other countries, and others".
Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who Trump criticized for recusing himself in the Russia probe given his own contact with Russian officials while serving as a surrogate for Trump during the campaign, has been somewhat sympathetic to GOP legislators who want matters they consider troubling to be investigated, including alleged wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation and the controversial sale of a uranium company to Russia. In the discredited dossier based in part on Kremlin-provided information, it was claimed Trump hired Russian prostitutes to urinate on a hotel bed.
Last month, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said Palestinians would not accept any American role in the in the wake of Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. The document dump came last week in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by good government group Judicial Watch.
The FBI previously investigated Clinton twice for her use of the email server, with one of the cases being reopened by former FBI Director James Comey just days before the 2016 presidential election. "In terms of any investigation, that would be something the Department of Justice would need to decide, and I would refer you to them on whether or not they move forward", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Tuesday, calling the facts surrounding Abedin "disturbing".

Abedin used an un-secure Yahoo email address to conduct official State Department business, often forwarding sensitive government documents to the Yahoo address, apparently in violation of federal law. The findings from a separate Justice Department probe into the FBI's handling of the email scandal will be released this spring. "Abedin further explained that it was hard to print from the DoS system so she routinely forwarded emails to her non-DoS accounts so she could more easily print".
Several of the emails, which stemmed from Abedin's tenure as an aide to Clinton when she was Secretary of State, contained classified material that was redacted. After the "donation" was received, access to Clinton would be approved.
The former assistant FBI director who oversaw the bureau's office in North Carolina said "nothing about the [Hillary Clinton] investigation was right". Trump fired the bungling Comey a year ago for his corruption and incompetence.
The former FBI director wrote in a leaked memo that Trump had asked him to shut down the Flynn investigation.Читайте также: Lorde's decision to cancel her concert in Tel Aviv
Republicans charge that an anti-Trump bias exists in the bureau's ranks, citing the campaign donations to McCabe's wife and, more recently, the release of hundreds of text messages between FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page. His comment on the "sailors pictures" seems to be a reference to 30-year-old Kristian Saucier, who was sentenced to a year in prison for taking photos in a classified area of a nuclear submarine.
In another development, Abedin's first cousin was convicted in a fraud case invoking fake emails. The judge involved said Amanat showed a "disdain for the courts and legal process".
Whether those emails were classified when they were sent wasn't immediately clear.
Amanat was accused of bilking investors by lying to them about the precarious financial condition of a tech concern called Kit Digital.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.

"The evidence of their criminal schemes was so overwhelming that Amanat actually tried to fool the jury by introducing fake emails into the record as exculpatory "evidence" in this trial", Acting Manhattan US Attorney Joon H Kim said in a statement.Код для вставки в блог
