Hillary Clinton Emails: 1,300 Messages from Private Account Released

Joe Raedle/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — The State Department released a third batch of highly sought after emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s controversial private email account Friday.

Posted on the State Department’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) website, the collection includes just over 1,300 emails all dated in 2009.

In late May, the State Department released nearly 300 of her emails in response to a House committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi terror attack, and in late June it published 2,000 additional emails, the start of a slow process to make all 55,000 pages of her emails public.

Last week, an internal investigator for the U.S. Intelligence Community asked the FBI to investigate Clinton’s private account and said it found at least four clear examples of messages that contained classified information, claiming there could potentially be hundreds more.

Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, has said she never handled classified material on her private account and that she wants the State Department to make all the emails she turned over public as quickly as possible.

A federal judge presiding over a FOIA case brought by media outlets seeking Hillary Clinton’s 55,000 pages of emails ordered the State Department in May to release her emails in monthly tranches and to post all of the documents eligible for release on the department’s website by Jan. 29, 2016.

The State Department has since established a full-time staff, with one project manager, two case analysts, nine FOIA reviewers and a slew of additional information analysts who have been working since April to complete the task.

The 55,000 pages encompass more than 30,000 emails from then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email account, spanning from 2009 to 2013.

Meet Earth’s Closest Rocky Neighbor Outside the Solar System

Artist’s rendering. NASA/JPL-Caltech(WASHINGTON) — Earth’s closest rocky neighbor outside of the solar system has been confirmed using NASA’s Spitzer telescope.

The alien rocky planet has been named HD 219134b and is 1.6 times the size of Earth, according to NASA. What makes this exoplanet special is it’s 21 light-years away from Earth, while most other exoplanets that have been located are hundreds of light years away.

In fact, it’s so close that the star that the exoplanet orbits is visible to the naked eye, in the constellation Cassiopeia, NASA officials said.

While the exoplanet was first discovered using the Italian Galileo National Telescope in the Canary Islands, Spitzer has taken infrared measurements, allowing scientists to learn more about the exoplanet’s size and confirm its rocky terrain.

The exoplanet is transiting in front of its star, making it an ideal body for scientists to study and a potential gold mine of scientific data, according to NASA scientists.

“Transiting exoplanets are worth their weight in gold because they can be extensively characterized,” Michael Werner, project scientist for the Spitzer mission, said in a statement on Thursday. “This exoplanet will be one of the most studied for decades to come.”

One thing scientists know they won’t find though is alien life. According to NASA, the exoplanet rotates too close to its star, making it unable to sustain life.

Hillary Clinton Challenges Jeb Bush On His Home Turf

Joe Raedle/Getty Images(FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.) — Appearing in the same city and at the same event as Jeb Bush on Friday, Hillary Clinton took aim at the candidate who could be her future Republican presidential rival in the state where he lives and governed for eight years.

Without mentioning Bush by name, Clinton sunk her teeth into a phrase that has become synonymous with the Bush campaign.

“I don’t think you can credibly say that everybody has a right to rise and then say you’re for phasing out Medicare or for repealing Obamacare,” Clinton said at a gathering of the National Urban League, referring to the name of Bush’s Super PAC, as well as a line he often uses in his campaign speech, “Right to Rise.”

“They can’t rise if the minimum wage is too low to live on. They can’t rise if their governor makes it harder for them to get a college education. And you cannot seriously talk about the right to rise, and support laws that deny the right to vote,” she continued.

Bush, who delivered remarks to members of the non-partisan civil rights group shortly after Clinton, did not offer a direct response to her. But his campaign did.

“These are just more false, cheap political shots to distract from the fact that Secretary Clinton has no record of accomplishment to run on this race,” spokeswoman Allie Brandenburger said in a statement. “The Urban League deserved better today.”

Later Friday, Clinton plans to deliver a speech in Miami meant to tweak Bush and other Republicans. She will call for a lifting of a full-scale end to the U.S. embargo with Cuba.

“The Cuba embargo needs to go, once and for all. We should replace it with a smarter approach that empowers the Cuban private sector, Cuban civil society, and the Cuban-American community to spur progress and keep pressure on the regime,” Clinton said in her speech. “Today I am calling on Speaker Boehner and Senator McConnell to step up and answer the pleas of the Cuban people.”

Bush is opposed to the restoration of diplomatic relations with Cuba.

“It’s insulting to many residents of Miami for Hillary Clinton to come here to endorse a retreat in the struggle for democracy in Cuba,” Bush said in a statement. “This city has become a home and a refuge to thousands and thousands of Castro’s victims. Secretary Clinton’s call to abandon the embargo — and the principles of democracy and freedom for the Cuban people — in exchange for nothing in return from the regime in Havana adds insult to the pain they and their families feel.”
