Yesterday, Hillary Clinton stepped out from behind the stone wall to address the press. Her performance fell flat as she grew visibly uncomfortable fielding questions about her private email account.

In October, the New York Times reported President Obama intended to fly solo on Iranian negotiations. “But the White House has made one significant decision: If agreement is reached, President Obama will do everything in his power to avoid letting Congress vote on it,” they reported.

When I first watched Hillary’s press conference, something jumped out at me that has been bothering me since. It’s not just the self-contradictory explanation of why she will not turn over the server to a neutral party, or the apparent falsehoods in her explanations as to prior usage. Hillary did something th…

Hillary’s email scandal is a flashback for anyone who remembers the Bill Clinton years. Democrats have put all their eggs in one basket for Hillary in 2016 but as Charles Krauthammer observed on Special Report last night, it’s like America has stepped into a time machine.

The Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act is a good thing. If passed, it would allow law enforcement agencies to expand and improve human trafficking deterrence programs.

The problem with Hillary Clinton’s explanation for her use of a personal email server and account for government business goes beyond the demonstrable falsehoods and suspicious nature of setting up such an arrangement. Hillary explained that she turned over all work-related emails to the State Department, and “chose not to keep” (i.e.,…
