Team Clinton Had Access to State Department Docs Well After Hillary Left

In her speech to Georgetown University students Friday, failed Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said that cutting international diplomacy and aid efforts would “undermine our security.” But Clinton may be the one responsible for undermining security, for far longer than anyone previously thought.

According to documents obtained by Fox News and from Sen. Chuck Grassley, Clinton was allowed to view highly classified documents well after she left the State Department, all the way until she launched her fledgling Presidential campaign in 2015.

At this point it’s easier to list the laws she didn’t break.

Over 12,000 tweets are calling for Trump’s assassination. Here’s how the Secret Service handles it

In the 12 days since Donald Trump took the oath of office, a steady stream of social media posts have called for the new president’s assassination.

The posts are pretty basic and many are jokes or sarcastic or hyperbolic — but there are a lot of them. In a Dataminr search of Twitter posts since Inauguration Day containing the phrase “assassinate Trump” more than 12,000 tweets came up.

The U.S. Secret Service, however, or even Twitter and Facebook themselves, doesn’t seem to be jumping onto many of these posts. When we asked several users about their recent “assassinate Trump” posts, all of them said they hadn’t been contacted by anyone about their post and they all remain up.
