The Obama administration turned down requests from FBI field offices who wanted to open public corruption cases involving the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton, according to recently released emails from Clinton's tenure as secretary of state.
Banks informed the field offices about suspicious activity concerning the Clinton Foundation and the FBI sought to probe conflicts of interest arising out of foreign donations, according to the documents, which carry 296 pages of emails from the Democratic presidential nominee, released by Judicial Watch.
The emails include 44 that were not previously turned over to the State Department by Clinton. "These records further appear to contradict statements by Clinton that, 'as far as she knew,' all of her government emails were turned over to the State Department," Judicial Watch said in a statement. more >>
ISTANBUL — Anti-American sentiment among Turks is on the rise and can only be calmed by the United States extraditing the Muslim cleric Ankara accuses of orchestrating last month's failed coup, Turkey's justice minister said on Tuesday.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan blames Fethullah Gulen, who has lived in self-imposed exile in rural Pennsylvania since 1999, and his followers for the July 15 coup, in which more than 240 people were killed and nearly 2,200 wounded.
Turkey has launched a series of mass purges of suspected Gulen supporters in its armed forces, other state institutions, universities, schools and the media since the abortive coup, prompting Western concerns for the stability of a key NATO ally. more >>
Evangelical leader James Dobson, among 40 other spiritual leaders, attended a meeting with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in June and now Dobson is opening up about what transpired, including details about a brief comment he made that suddenly put him under intense scrutiny.

Dobson, who was granted the first question at the conference, asked the GOP nominee how he would protect religious liberties. more >>
Is it true that a Hebrew prophecy about Barack Obama is hidden in the words of Jesus in Luke 10:18, where He said to His disciples, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven"?
Although this claim has been circulating for a number of years, I was asked about it again today, prompting this article.
The short answer is: Absolutely, categorically, certainly not. This is complete nonsense, without any possible linguistic support. more >>
Over 100 pastors recently signed on to an open letter to Ohio officials encouraging them to ignore President Barack Obama's controversial transgender directive for public schools.

The U.S. Supreme Court voted in a five to three decision on Wednesday to temporarily block an earlier court order that had allowed a transgender student that was born a female the right to use the boy's bathroom in a Virginia high school.
The New York Times reported that Gavin Grimm, a student from Gloucester High School in southeastern Virginia, was born a female but now identifies as a male, and for a time had been allowed by school administrators to use the boy's bathroom.
The school board later adopted a policy requiring students to use facilities corresponding to their birth gender, but said that "students with gender identity issues" would be allowed to use private bathrooms. more >>
