Trump Jumps on Leaked Audio from Hillary Clinton Fundraiser

PAUL J. RICHARDS/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Audio of Hillary Clinton addressing donors at a Virginia fundraiser back in February has surfaced and is gaining attention because of how she describes Bernie Sanders’ supporters, and Donald Trump and his campaign have jumped on the story in an effort to bring Sanders backers to their side. “Some are new to politics completely. They’re children of the Great Recession. And they are living in their parents’ basement,” Clinton said at the home of former U.S. Ambassador Beatrice Welters. “They feel they got their education and the jobs that are available to them are not at all what they envisioned for themselves. And they don’t see much of a future.” The audio, released by the Free Beacon, was recorded during the heart of the Democratic primary when the race was close between Clinton and Sanders. Since Clinton became the nominee, Sanders has not only endorsed her — he spoke at the convention and has been actively campaigning for the former secretary of state in…

ABC/ Ida Mae Astute(PHOENIX) — Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has not yet responded to a cease-and-desist letter from the city of Phoenix regarding the alleged unauthorized use of city police officers in an ad that began airing recently, according to city officials.

Hackers Used Outside Vendor to Access State Voter Info, Sources Say

ABC News(WASHINGTON) — Foreign hackers were able to gain access to voter-related information in four states by targeting not only government systems, but also by breaking into computers associated with private contractors hired to handle voter information, ABC News has learned. As ABC News first reported Thursday, hackers have recently tried to infiltrate voter registration systems in nearly half of the states across the country –- a significantly larger cyber-assault than U.S. officials have been willing to concede. And while officials have publicly admitted Illinois and Arizona had their systems compromised, officials have yet to acknowledge that information related to at least two other states’ voters has also been exposed. Hackers working on behalf of the Russian government are suspected in the onslaught against election-related systems, according to sources with knowledge of the matter. Testifying before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, FBI Director James Comey said his agents are trying to figure out “just what mischief is Russia up to in connection with our election.” Sources told ABC News…

A “bullet ripped through little Jacob’s femoral artery,” a major artery located in the thigh, wrote South Carolina Rep. Alan Clemmons on his Facebook page Wednesday.

‘Hero’ School Counselor Talked Student With Gun Out of Shooting, Sheriff Says

Cheatham County School District(NEW YORK) — A Tennessee middle school counselor is being hailed a hero after she talked a 14-year-old boy who came to school with a loaded gun out of his alleged plans to shoot teachers and a police officer this week, according to the Cheatham County Sheriff’s Office. Molly Hudgens, a counselor at Sycamore Middle School in Pleasant View, Tennessee, “single-handedly” prevented a “potential deadly mass shooting” on Wednesday, Cheatham County Sheriff Mike Breedlove said at a news conference. Shortly after the first-period class that day, the 14-year-old student requested to speak to Hudgens, according to the sheriff. Upon entering her office, he “started asking various questions that alarmed” Hudgens, who “sensed that something was wrong.” After asking if he had a gun, the student “affirmed he did” and that he was holding it “under his clothing,” Breedlove said. The teen then “advised Ms. Hudgens that he was going to kill some teachers and a police officer — not students,” according to Breedlove. The 14-year-old “indicated that…
