Leading evangelist Franklin Graham says Hillary Clinton resorted to a "natural tendency" when she tried to pin the use of her private email server on former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell.
As reported by The New York Times, FBI notes handed over to Congress last Tuesday show that the Democratic presidential nominee told investigators looking into the use of her private email server while serving as secretary of state that it was Powell who advised her to use a personal email account.
Powell, who served as the head of the State Department from 2001 to 2005 under President George W. Bush, defended himself on Saturday during an event in New York. more >>

The Islamic State terror group has claimed responsibility for its first-ever attack on Russian soil, after a pair of militants attacked a traffic police post outside of Moscow with guns and axes, but were shot dead.

"We have taken the path of jihad on the orders of our Amir Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi," says a video of the attackers, named as Uthman Mardalov and Salim Israilov, released by Amaq news agency. more >>
Evangelist Franklin Graham is calling President Barack Obama's decision for the United States to relinquish government control of a key component of the Internet to a private organization "dangerous" and "a shame."
Writing on his Facebook page Thursday, Graham said of the Obama administration's move to turn over government control of the Domain Naming System (DNS) to a private international organization based in California: "This isn't smart. It's another dangerous decision in a long line of bad policy moves by our government. This could potentially weaken our country and allow others access that could bring us harm."
The transfer is set to occur on October 1 and some conservative groups, although not oppposed in principle like Graham, still argue that it is a subversion of congressional authority. more >>
