Bill Clinton Says His Superdelegate Vote Will Go To Sanders If He Wins Nom

Former President Bill Clinton, husband to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, suggested Thursday that he'd use his superdelegate vote to support Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) if he won the Democratic nomination.

The former President told The New York Daily News that he did the same thing in 2008 when Hillary Clinton lost the nomination to then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL).

"It happened last time,” Clinton told the newspaper. “Last time I did what my candidate asked, I voted for Barack Obama.

Hillary Clinton email ‘scandal’ has been way overblown

MARCH 25, 2016 6:39 PM


About Hillary Clinton and her email, the biggest question concerns intent.

Did her offices purposefully give secrets to people without clearance or a need to know?

So far, the answer looks like “no.”

Beyond that, what partisan people are calling “crimes” is really just handling-policy breaches.

Were secret documents stolen by hackers and delivered to people without clearance?

The answer so far seems to be “no” also, but even if it did happen, it means there was a policy breach and not a crime.

Hackers could have attacked a secure server also.

But what is the worst case?

▪ During the George W. Bush administration, one of our CIA agents, Valerie Plame, was outed, endangering those who had been in contact with her.

No one was punished. (Vice President Dick Cheney’s chief of staff went to jail for lying to the FBI, not for passing secrets.)

▪ Gen. David Petraeus provided classified information to his mistress. His punishment? A misdemeanor for mishandling classified information. (He resigned as director of the CIA over the affair, not the handling of classified documents.)

Did Secretary Clinton’s office handle secret documents strictly by the book?

Obviously not, so therefore guidelines and rules need to be reviewed or addressed.

When our secretaries of state are trying to do their job, I think we can cut them a little slack.

Let’s fix the process, not burn the people trying to save the world.

Source: Clinton email server logs show no breach

By JOSH GERSTEIN 03/03/16 10:11 PM EST

Logs for Hillary Clinton's email server turned over to the FBI by a former aide to Clinton show no evidence of suspicious foreign traffic indicating hacking from abroad, a person familiar with the investigation said.

The records were provided to the FBI by former Clinton information technology staffer Bryan Pagliano, according to the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity. Pagliano worked at the State Department but was also involved in setting up the server at Clinton's Chappaqua, N.Y. home.

The New York Times first reported Thursday that the logs show no indication of foreign hacking.

The FBI has been investigating since last summer whether sensitive information in Clinton's account was compromised by foreign intelligence services, hackers or others. An FBI spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment
