Clinton Campaign Email Lists Judge Who Made Trump’s Lawyer Name Hannity   Rod Rosenstein isn’t the only federal payroll patriot who might soon be facing impeachment. Manhattan-based Federal Court Judge Kimba Wood is one of many on a long list of judges whose official government email addresses were recently found in the correspondence of Hillary Clinton’s former 2016 campaign manager, John Podesta. Podesta’s emails, which were published during the campaign, can be searched on the WikiLeaks website here and the specific document of listing Wood and other judges can be found here.

New York Magazine: Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao Finally Gets Her Own Ethics Scandal   The deep financial ties between the McConnell-Chao family and China’s communist regime was first reported by Government Accountability Institute president and Breitbart senior editor-at-large Peter Schweizer in his latest #1 New York Times bestseller Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends.   Schweizer revealed how Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his wife, Transportation Secretary Chao, received a “gift” from Chao’s shipping mogul father—whose company Foremost Group does massive deals with the Chinese government—for between $5 to $25 million. Elaine Chao’s sister, Angela Chao, also works for the Foremost Group and sits on the board of the Communist Chinese government’s Bank of China.

Environmentalists Cited for Moral Licensing, Study Shows Massive Hypocrisy   A recently released study suggests those less concerned with climate change practice more eco-friendly habits than those who are more alarmed about the issue.   In an April study published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology, University of Michigan psychology graduate student Michael Hall researched the behavioral differences between people who hold varying degrees of concern toward climate change.

Disturbing Message About Hillary’s Server Found in FBI Office Storing It   the FBI confiscated the server that housed Clinton’s email operation from Platte River Networks in Denver on Aug. 12, 2015, and took it to the FBI’s Operational Technology Division for storage as item “1B3.”  When an FBI special agent (“SA [blank]” in the file) went to pick up the server on Oct. 20 — more than two months later — he was greeted with the disturbing message that the chain of custody for what could well be the single most important piece of evidence in the investigation had gone missing.  That would be a major problem for any criminal investigation — whether a petty drug offense or a major white-collar embezzlement — but for the FBI’s investigation of Clinton’s potential breaching of national security, it’s mind-boggling. Essentially, it meant the server was officially unaccounted for.

Amazon Deals Harsh Blow to Christian Non-Profit that Defends Religious Freedom   To the retail giant Amazon, “defending freedom” are dirty words.  That’s the takeaway from the behemoth’s decision to ban the conservative legal firm Alliance Defending Freedom from its fundraising options on the word of the Southern Poverty Law Center, a leftist activist group that uses its mainstream media popularity to remorselessly attack conservative organizations.

Judge rejects Mueller’s request for delay in Russian troll farm case     A federal judge has rejected special counsel Robert Mueller’s request to delay the first court hearing in a criminal case charging three Russian companies and 13 Russian citizens with using social media and other means to foment strife among Americans in advance of the 2016 U.S. presidential election.     Mueller’s attempt to delay happened after a pair of Washington-area lawyers suddenly surfaced in the case, notifying the court that they represent Concord Management. POLITICO reported at the time that the move appeared to be a bid to force Mueller’s team to turn over relevant evidence to the Russian firm and perhaps even to bait prosecutors into an embarrassing dismissal in order to avoid disclosing sensitive information.

The actress turned New York gubernatorial candidate is running on a platform of legalizing marijuana.
