FBI ‘indifferent’ to possible China hack of Hillary Clinton’s server, as State Department fought to protect her, interviews suggest

Interviews with intelligence community officials have revealed that senior FBI leaders “seemed indifferent to evidence of a possible intrusion by a foreign adversary” into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s non-government email server, and that State Department officials allegedly sought to “downgrade classified material found on the server,” according to Senate investigators still probing the matter.

The information was contained in a letter and interview transcripts sent Monday by the majority staff on the Senate Finance and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committees to senior Senate Republicans including Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa.

“In August 2018, news articles alleged that a Chinese state-owned company hacked former Secretary Clinton’s nongovernment server and inserted code that forwarded nearly all of her emails to the foreign company,” the letter stated, referring in part to a Fox News article.

‘OMG’ — TOP CLINTON AIDE STUNNED BY APPARENT FOREIGN ATTEMPT TO HACK SERVER IN MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

A source briefed on the matter confirmed to Fox News at the time that the Office of the Intelligence Community Inspector General was so concerned by the revelation that officials drove over to the FBI to inform agents — including anti-Trump agent Peter Strzok — of the development after it was discovered via the emails’ metadata. The source said the hack was from a Chinese company, describing it as a front for Chinese intelligence.

The letter continued: “The reporting indicated that two Intelligence Community Inspector General officials – Frank Rucker and Jeanette McMillian – discovered the code and brought the possible intrusion to the attention of the FBI.”

In a December 2018 interview with Senate investigators concerning the FBI’s response to the potential foreign hack, Rucker said Strzok — then the deputy assistant director of the FBI’s counterintelligence division in charge of the Clinton investigation — seemed “aloof and dismissive” and didn’t ask many questions, according to a transcript.

FBI SCRAMBLED TO ANSWER TO CLINTON LAWYER IN DAYS BEFORE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, NEW DOCS REVEAL

McMillian said FBI employees in the meeting were “poker-faced” during the roughly hourlong meeting, even though both the CIA and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) had “significant equities” in the information contained on the server.

The FBI did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

McMillian said Rucker had identified an email address in Clinton’s email metadata as a potential “live dropbox” for all her emails, which a foreign actor could then access.

However, according to McMillian, the FBI generally seemed “impressed” with Rucker’s technical abilities in finding the apparent breach, and took the issue seriously. McMillian specifically said Strzok had found the email account’s presence in Clinton’s metadata “strange.”

McMillian said she made sure to tell the FBI that the ICIG was not trying to usurp the FBI’s authority after bureau officials asked how it had found information about the potential breach.

May 2016 email from Strzok, obtained by Fox News last year, said “we know foreign actors obtained access” to some Clinton emails, including at least one “secret” message “via compromises of the private email accounts” of Clinton staffers.

Strzok, earlier this month, filed a lawsuit against the bureau and the Justice Department – arguing that the FBI caved to the “unrelenting pressure” of the president when it fired him. DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz previously concluded that although he could not prove Strzok had let his political bias influence official decisions, he did not have confidence that Strzok had acted without bias.

In text messages with his then-lover, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, Strzok said on his government-issued phone that “we’ll stop” Trump from becoming president, and called Trump supporters “retarded.”

Separately, Rucker and McMillian offered more details into reports that the State Department sought to cover for Clinton by downgrading the classification of emails on the server.

“At first, State fought back against the intelligence community being involved,” McMillian told investigators, before noting that they eventually relented.

McMillian claimed that two State Department employees tried to shield some of Clinton’s emails from disclosure under the “deliberative process” exemption under the Freedom of Information Act — rather than labeling the emails classified.

The employees, Austin Evers and Catherine Duval, did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment. Evers has since launched the organization American Oversight along with other former Obama administration officials. The group says it is devoted to uncovering ethics issues in the Trump administration.

Rucker also claimed that then-Ambassador Patrick Kennedy questioned “whether certain emails should be provided to the intelligence community for review and fighting against classifying other emails,” according to the Senate investigators.

The State Department didn’t respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Interviews released in 2016, known as 302s, first revealed the serious allegation that Kennedy applied pressure to subordinates to change classified email codes so they would be shielded from Congress and the public.

Fox News was told as far back as August 2015 that Kennedy was running interference on Capitol Hill. But Kennedy, in his FBI interview on Dec. 21, 2015, “categorically rejected” allegations of classified code tampering.

“In return for altering the classification, the possibility of additional slots for the FBI at missions overseas was discussed,” then-House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, now a Fox News contributor, said at the time.

In a lengthy statement, the FBI denied it had agreed to declassify any emails in exchange for more overseas slots from the State Department.

A comprehensive IG report into potential FBI and DOJ misconduct during the Clinton and Russia probes is expected soon.

Sanford points to Labor Day decision on primary challenge to Trump

Mark Sanford says he should decide by around Labor Day if he’s going to mount what he has conceded would be a “long-shot” GOP primary bid against President Trump.

The former South Carolina governor and congressman announced last month that he would take around 30 days to test the waters before deciding whether to pursue the Republican presidential nomination.

“I gave myself a month and I’m running up on that deadline,” Sanford said Wednesday as he sat down for an interview with Fox News in New Hampshire, which holds the first presidential primary in the race for the White House.

Former South Carolina governor and congressman Mark Sanford sitting down for an interview during a stop in Concord, N.H., on Tuesday.

MARK SANFORD CONFESSES ‘I DONT’ THINK ANYBODY’S GOING TO BEAT DONALD TRUMP’

The trip was Sanford’s first to one of the early-voting states in the primary and caucus nominating calendar as he mulls whether to run for the presidency or maybe form a think tank devoted to fiscal conservatism.

“People are politically aware here,” Sanford said. “More than any other state out there … this is a state where you can get a grassroots opinion real fast on a good idea, bad idea, go, no-go.”

One way or another, the aim of the longtime deficit hawk is to make the explosion of federal spending and a ballooning national debt a conversation in the presidential campaign.

“I think we need to have a conversation as Republicans about what it means to be a Republican,” Sanford explained. “One of the cornerstones to the Republican Party historically was, do we spend beyond our means? Do we believe in some level of financial sanity? And that seems to have gone out of the window of late.”

Sanford warned that “we’re about to drive the train off the tracks on debt, spending and accumulating deficits. And if we don’t all speak up, as Americans and as Republicans we’re going to pay the price.”

THE LATEST FROM FOX NEWS ON THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN

Pointing to plans with hefty price tags being proposed by the two dozen Democrats running for the White House, Sanford said “there’s something wrong with a robust debate taking place on the Democratic side where it’s simply a debate of more versus more versus more versus more, with nobody worried about who’s going to pay for it — and no debate taking place on the Republican side.”

Sanford, a Trump critic, criticized the president for failing to take action to curb the debt.

“It’s a problem that he hasn’t used the microphone to talk about how profound this challenge is and how it’s going to hurt every one of us if we don’t do something about it,” Sanford argued. “He’s ruled out action on the very things that drive our debt and spending. It’s irresponsible.”

Sanford’s visit came one day before Trump is to hold his first campaign rally in New Hampshire – it’s a key general-election battleground state – since the eve of the 2016 election.

Trump enjoys strong support among Granite State Republicans. The latest evidence: a new poll released this week from the University of New Hampshire showing Trump with an 82 percent approval score among Republicans.

Asked if he believes he can pull off a primary upset – or if he would get in just to spotlight fiscal conservatism – Sanford said “you try to do both. Your immediate goal is, can you have an impact? Can you help shape the debate? Can you have some degree of educational impact? And, your second, longer-term goal of the process is, can you win?”

But, he admitted, “I think you have to acknowledge up front that it’s a long shot.”

Sanford spent his day sitting down for a few select media interviews – and meeting with Republican veterans of the state’s presidential primary. Among them were former state party former state attorney general Tom Rath, a top adviser to then-Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s 2016 presidential campaign, and former state GOP chair Fergus Cullen, one of the leaders of the “Never-Trump” movement in New Hampshire.

There’s already a Republican challenging Trump in the primaries – former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld. He’s been making near-weekly trips to New Hampshire since February and officially launched his bid in April. But he’s failed – to date – to make a dent in the polls.

Asked how he could succeed where Weld hasn’t, Sanford answered, “That would be the test of time.”

Weld, as the former governor of a neighboring state, has some name recognition in New Hampshire. If Sanford’s known at all in New Hampshire, it’s for the “Appalachian Trail.”

That’s a reference to Sanford’s original excuse for a weeklong disappearance in June 2009. It was later revealed that Sanford was out of the country, having an affair with an Argentinian woman. The episode ended his marriage and derailed the political career of the popular two-term governor, who was considered an early leading contender for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination.

But politics is full of second chances, and the former governor won back his old congressional seat in a 2013 special election. He won reelection in 2014 and 2016. Still, Sanford, a vocal Trump critic, was targeted by the president in his 2018 reelection bid and lost a primary challenge to a pro-Trump candidate.

Asked if his possible primary challenge against the president was revenge for his 2018 loss, Sanford said no.

But, he did take aim again at Trump over the president’s demeanor.

“For all the credits and plusses the president may have, he’s got serious demerits with regard to tone,” Sanford charged. “And you cannot play the role of schoolyard bully and expect people to follow you. Leadership fundamentally at times is not about division and how we find contrast points, but it’s about inclusion and finding ways to work together.”

Homeowner shot a 14-year-old during burglary attempt. The 5 other teens with him were charged with murder

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close Homeowner shot a 14-year-old during burglary attempt. The 5 other teens with him were charged with murder

Five Chicago teens are being charged with murder after a 14-year-old who was with them during an attempted burglary was shot by the homeowner, authorities said Tuesday.

The group traveled in a stolen Lexus to an Illinois home where they were confronted by the 75-year-old homeowner, according to the Lake County Illinois Sheriff’s Office. The man went out to investigate and told authorities he believed someone was trying to steal his car, a 2011 Audi.

“At least one of the male subjects advanced toward him with an unknown object in his hand,” officials said in a release. “The homeowner feared for his life and discharged a firearm.”

At least one of the rounds from the small caliber revolver struck the 14-year-old, and a knife was later found at the scene of the shooting. The homeowner called 911 to report the attempted burglary and shots fired, but by the time police arrived all of the suspects had fled.

Home invasion: He broke into a North Carolina home and was hit in the head with a machete. That was just the beginning

Meanwhile, about 3 miles down the road local police were investigating a traffic crash when the stolen Lexus pulled up to the scene, Detective Sgt. Chris Covelli told reporters at a news conference. Two of the occupants exited the vehicle and one flagged down the officers to assist the other who had a gunshot wound to the head.

Covelli said officers began first aid on the gunshot victim and called an ambulance while the other individual was taken into custody.

The remaining four teens fled in the Lexus “at a high rate of speed,” according to Covelli. The ensuing car chase reached speeds of 120 mile per hour and only ended when the Lexus ran out of gas.

The four teens fled the vehicle on foot, three of whom Covelli said were taken into custody “pretty quickly.” The fourth suspect was located by an officer and a K-9 about a block away inside a dumpster.

All five of the teens, ages 16 to 18, were charged with first degree murder “due to them being in commission of a forcible felony, when the 14-year-old victim was shot and subsequently died as a result of being shot during the commission of a burglary,” authorities said in the release. Only one of the suspects, 18-year-old Diamond Davis, has been identified.

Stand your ground: Uber driver in Florida fatally shoots man in ‘classic stand your ground case,’ says sheriff

The teens appeared in court Tuesday afternoon and a Lake County judge set bail at $1 million each. They are set to appear in court again on Sept. 5.

Sheriff John Idleburg thanked the law enforcement agencies that assisted on the case at a press conference Tuesday.

“Anytime there is a loss of life, it is a tragedy for the family and friends of the deceased,” Idleburg added. “Our condolences go out to the family of the young man who lost his life today, despite the circumstances.”

Stuart Varney on Hong Kong protests: History is unfolding before our eyes

Westlake Legal Group HongKong081319 Stuart Varney on Hong Kong protests: History is unfolding before our eyes fox-news/world/world-regions/hong-kong fox-news/opinion fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/fox-nation Fox News Staff fox news fnc/media fnc article 5eccb8b4-731d-558e-bf29-900b62acd001

Fox Business host Stuart Varney called recent events in Hong Kong “extraordinary” as he discussed the violent protests that have overtaken many parts of the city.

“I can’t remember the last time where we saw a world event of this magnitude unfold in real-time on television… it is a major event,” Varney said.

For more than two months, Hong Kong has seen mass protests. Recent demonstrations have called for an independent inquiry into the city’s police and its alleged abuse of power.

Police have been seen clashing with the protestors and firing off tear gas, while Chinese paramilitary forces have assembled across the border in the city of Shenzhen for exercises that some see as a threat to crack down on the protesters.

TRUMP SAYS CHINA ‘MOVING TROOPS’ TO HONG KONG BORDER AS POLICE CLASH WITH PROTESTERS

At one point during the protests, two American flags were spotted as demonstrators marched proudly down a popular Hong Kong street.

“Think how provocative that was to the communist authorities who are trying to suppress these demonstrations,” Varney said on his Fox Nation series “My Take.” “The American flag is like red rag to a bull. It is an invitation to clamp down on the protests and we saw it live in real-time as it was unfolding.”

Varney explained the ramifications — financial and otherwise — that could result from the Hong Kong government’s inability to restore peace.

“You shut Hong Kong down,” he said, “and you are snuffing out what had been a bastion of liberty, free speech and the rule of law.”

Illinois moves to disbar former Gov. Rod Blagojevich as Trump mulls commuting sentence

Westlake Legal Group AP19220387261808-1 Illinois moves to disbar former Gov. Rod Blagojevich as Trump mulls commuting sentence Louis Casiano fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/illinois fox-news/politics/state-and-local/governors fox-news/politics/state-and-local/controversies fox news fnc/politics fnc f4a268a5-1900-5315-800b-d1ed1597559f article

Illinois officials are seeking to disbar former Gov. Rod Blagojevich as he waits in a federal prison in Colorado for news on whether President Trump will commute his 14-year sentence on corruption charges.

The Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission filed a complaint against Blagojevich earlier this month and requested a hearing before a disciplinary panel, the Chicago Tribune reported. The complaint cited the disgraced governor’s crimes — which include trying to sell former President Barack Obama’s vacant U.S. Senate seat.

The Illinois Supreme Court suspended Blagojevich’s law license indefinitely after his conviction in 2011 at a second trial on wire fraud, bribery and attempted extortion charges.

JESSE JACKSON URGES TRUMP TO PARDON FORMER ILLINOIS GOV. ROD BLAGOJEVICH

Attorneys for Blagojevich, 62, were served the complaint on Aug. 7, the day Trump said he was considering commuting his sentence. Blagojevich has until Aug. 28 to respond to the complaint.

James Grogan, deputy administrator and chief counsel for the ARDC, told the Tribune regulators must wait until the former governor’s appellate options have been exhausted by state law before beginning disbarment proceedings.

COMMUTATION OF BLAGOJEVICH’S PRISON SENTENCE ON HOLD

“Unless you agree to essentially disbar yourself, we have to wait,” Grogan told the paper.

The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear the former governor’s appeal in April 2018.

Blagojevich graduated from the Pepperdine University School of Law in 1983 and was admitted to the Illinois bar a year later. His law career was brief.

He worked as an assistant Cook County state’s attorney where he was assigned to traffic cases before embarking on a career in politics.

He served as governor from 2003 until he was impeached and removed from office in 2009. He could be eligible for early release as soon as May 2024.

David Webb on school decision to cover George Washington mural: ‘Something more dangerous is going on here’

Radio personality and the Fox Nation host of “Reality Check,” David Webb said that those that voted in favor of covering a controversial 1936 George Washington mural at a high school that includes images of slavery and the killing of a Native American are attempting to “rewrite their own version of history.”

On Tuesday, The San Francisco school board voted 4-3 to cover up — but not remove — the mural. The 13-panel “Life of Washington” will be preserved but covered by panels that show “the heroism of people of color in America, how we have fought against, and continue to battle discrimination, racism, hatred and poverty.”

Appearing on “Outnumbered Overtime,” Wednesday, Webb called the decision to cover up the mural an “act of cowardice” and said he believes that artwork could potentially do “a better job of teaching history to the students than these teachers.”

NEWT GINGRICH: THE SPIRIT OF FASCISTIC BOOK BURNING HAS ENTERED THE AMERICAN SYSTEM

“This is someone who painted what was real and they’re covering up history. It’s an insult to art, it’s an insult to education, it’s an insult to telling history for what it is,” he said.

Webb reiterated his dissatisfaction with the decision and said he was worried about what it represents.

“There is something more dangerous here. If you remove or eliminate or obfuscate the truth you can create your own version of it and that’s what’s going on in a very liberal environment in San Francisco where they want to create a new history.”

Colin Kaepernick Marks 3rd Anniversary Of National Anthem Protest With Video

Westlake Legal Group 5d54938a2400009a01b80703 Colin Kaepernick Marks 3rd Anniversary Of National Anthem Protest With Video

To mark three years since he began a civil rights protest by not standing during the national anthem at an NFL game, Colin Kaepernick shared an emotional video Wednesday paying tribute to people affected by police brutality. 

The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, who’s been unsigned since the season he began protesting, tweeted the video with a promise that he’s continuing to “work and stand with the people in our fight for liberation,” referring to the disproportionate number of Black people killed by police.

The video features remarks from friends and family of Alton Sterling, Michael Brown, Tamir Rice and Philando Castile, who were all victims of police violence.

Though most recall Kaepernick protesting by kneeling during the anthem, Aug. 14, 2016, was the date he first decided to sit through “The Star-Spangled Banner.” He did so again at a game four days later, but both actions went largely unnoticed.

It wasn’t until later in August that the quarterback began kneeling and explained to the media that doing so was a demonstration against police brutality. Countless other athletes have since followed suit.

No one was more enraged by the kneeling than President Donald Trump, who encouraged fans to boycott the NFL and called Kaepernick a “son of a bitch” in 2017.

Kaepernick, who’s been a free agent for years despite a decent 2016 season with the 49ers, settled a lawsuit with the NFL in February after he sued the league for allegedly blackballing him.

Earlier this month, he not-so-subtly reminded the NFL with a tweet that he’s kept himself in shape and hopes to play in an upcoming season.

“Today’s comments by @RepSteveKingIA are appalling and bizarre,” the GOP lawmaker from Wyoming tweeted. “As I’ve said before, it’s time for him to go. The people of Iowa’s 4th congressional district deserve better.

REP. STEVE KING SLAMMED BY FELLOW GOP COLLEAGUES FOR ‘WHITE SUPREMACIST’ REMARK 

Cheney’s comments came after King, aiming to defend the pro-life stance of not allowing any exceptions for abortions, wondered whether everyone’s “family trees” included ancestors who were the product of rape or incest. His comments came as he spoke at the Westside Conservative Club.

“What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled out anyone who was a product of rape or incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?” King said in Urbandale, Iowa, according to The Des Moines Register. “Considering all the wars and all the rapes and pillages that happened throughout all these different nations, I know that I can’t say that I was not a part of a product of that.”

King inspired a heavy social media backlash. Among the strong responses, 2020 presidential candidate and Democratic New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, called for his resignation.

Cheney, who serves as the House Republican Caucus Chair, was one of many Republicans who blasted King earlier this year for telling The New York Times, “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?”

King was later stripped of committee assignments and the House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a resolution condemning his remarks.

Jack Osbourne isn’t alone as he goes through the aftermath of a divorce; his parents — Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne — are right by his side.

Sharon, the “Talk” co-host, 66, opened up about her family’s difficult time and how it’s affecting her three granddaughters in a recent interview with People magazine.

She said Jack’s kids — Minnie Theodora, 18 months; Andy Rose, 4; and Pearl Clementine, 7 — will always have stability at “Nana’s and Papa’s.”

“When this happens in families — and it happens all the time — they have to have the stability somewhere,” she explained to the outlet. “Nana and Papa are still in the same house. Nothing’s going to change. You know what you’re going to get when you come here.”

Jack, 33, and his wife, Lisa Stelly, 32, finalized their divorce in March after Stelly filed for it last year. Sharon says she is proud of the new co-parents because they’ve been able to keep “all of that nastiness” away from the kids.

“Jack and Lisa are at a good place with each other and it’s working out and it’s civil,” Sharon revealed, adding “it’s been hard for Jack.”

“The divorce has been really tough on him emotionally,” she explained, noting that Jack has been leaning on his rock-icon dad, 70, during his time of transition.

“With a guy, there’s only so much that I can say [and] that I can do. It’s really his dad that he talks to about that because Ozzy’s been divorced,” she said of Ozzy, who split from Thelma Riley in 1982.

“When Jack said that he was getting divorced, Ozzy cried. He said, ‘I’m crying for you because I know how painful it’s going to be, because I’ve been through it and I don’t want you to experience that pain,’” Sharon said.

She also described her “very special” bond with her granddaughters.

“It is one of the joys of growing old because it is a different kind of love,” she gushed.
