Senate sleuths focus on ex-State Department aide in Clinton email ‘cover-up’

Senate sleuths focus on ex-State Department aide in Clinton email ‘cover-up’As Hillary Clinton seeks to rebound from a highly critical report from the State Department’s inspector general, Senate investigators and a conservative group are zeroing in on newly revealed evidence about the activities of a now retired State Department computer specialist in orchestrating what they charge was a “cover-up” of the former secretary of state’s email practices. The role of John Bentel, whose identity as a key figure in the email probes was first reported by Yahoo News on Wednesday, is expected to be one focus of questioning today when Clinton’s former chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, is deposed in a lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch over the State Department’s handling of Freedom of Information Act requests relating to Clinton’s emails, according to a source close to the case.

We Showed Non-Australians Photos Of Aussie Politics And It Was Hilarious

“I think Australia is drunk and needs to go home.”

BuzzFeed Australia sent a bunch of uncaptioned photos of Australian politics to our international colleagues and asked them to write down their immediate thoughts. This is what happened:

Prime minister Malcolm Turnbull and leader of the opposition, Bill Shorten.

Lincoln (US): OMG ZADDIES.

Elizabeth (UK): Oh god. Please no more men. Have you seen what they've done to Britain?

Victor (Russia): They appear to be in opposition to each other since one is wearing blue tie and the other is wearing red one.

Susana (Brazil): They look like white male politicians everywhere (even Brazil).

Guillermo (Spain): Motoring Enthusiast? WTF? Also, isn't Glenn Lazarus a character from Harry Potter? And why would someone want a xenomorph running their country?

Erin (US): Are the Australian Motoring Enthusiasts just a group of people who love motor boats and want government subsidies for their motor boats so they can keep motor boating around on their motor boats?

Susie (US): Facebook: "Reminder: You have one event today."
Me: [clicks]

Airstrike Kills 2 Senior ISIS Commanders in Iraq
Including a fighter considered to be the group's deputy minister of war

(WASHINGTON) — The Pentagon says that a U.S.-led coalition airstrike killed two senior ISIS commanders last Saturday in northern Iraq, including a fighter considered to be the group’s deputy minister of war.

Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook says the strike killed Basim Muhammad Ahmad Sultan al-Bajari and a lower level commander, Hatim Talib al-Hamduni.

Cook says Al-Bajari was a former member of al-Qaeda who oversaw ISIS’s fight in June 2014 to capture the northern city of Mosul and worked to consolidate the group’s control over the city. Cook says that removing the two senior leaders will help as Iraqi forces and the coalition continue preparations to retake Mosul.

Iraqi leaders have pledged to retake Mosul this year, but U.S. officials say that timetable may not be realistic.
