(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released more than 50 pages of new emails from the clintonemail.com server account of Huma Abedin, a former top aide to Hillary Clinton during her tenure in the State Department. The emails discuss seemingly sensitive security and foreign affairs issues and raise questions about the handling of classified material during Hillary Clinton’s tenure at the State Department. The documents were obtained as result of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit seeking Huma Abedin’s government business emails conducted on non-state.gov email accounts (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00684)). The emails were produced from a search of State Department records, as the agency continues to delay full production of records turned over by Ms. Abedin recently.
President Obama plans to overhaul the Joint Chiefs of Staff this year as he seeks to replace a handful of longtime members whose terms are coming to a close.
Obama on Tuesday nominated Marine Gen. Joseph Dunford, commandant of the Marine Corps, to succeed Army Gen. Martin Dempsey as chairman this fall. He also tapped Air Force Gen. Paul Selva, head of U.S. Transportation Command, to replace Navy Adm. James “Sandy” Winnefeld as vice chairman.
In the roles since 2011, Dempsey and Winnefeld are expected to retire after their current two-year terms end in October and August, respectively. What’s more, two other members of the president’s cadre of military advisers are scheduled to step down in September, including Army Gen. Raymond Odierno, chief of staff of the Army, and Navy Adm. Jonathan Greenert, chief of naval operations.
The Joint Chiefs shakeup, if approved by the Senate, may leave a mark on the last two years of Obama’s presidency. In recent months alone, he consulted with his military advisers and national-security staff in authorizing U.S. military responses to a rising number of global threats, from Islamic militants in Iraq and Syria to Russian military involvement in the Ukraine.
In August of 2008, presidential candidate Barack Obama was asked at what point a baby gets “human rights.”
Obama, who is passionately anti-life when it comes to innocent, unborn life sidestepped the issue by saying “… whether you’re looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity … is above my pay grade.”
As it turns out, much to the chagrin of the American people, Barack Hussein Obama has a lengthy list of issues which are above his pay grade.
