Clinton’s Chief Strategist: Immunity For Hillary’s Chief of Staff Routine

On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” chief strategist for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton Joel Benenson said it is “fairly routine,” that Clinton’s former chief of staff Cheryl Mills was given immunity in the FBI’s investigation into Clinton use of a private unsecured email server during her tenure as secretary of state. Partial transcript as follows: WALLACE: We learned on Friday that as part of the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail system that Cheryl Mills, her chief of staff when Clinton was secretary of state, that she was one of the people, five people, who received limited immunity. How do you explain that, Joel? BENENSON: Well, Chris, I think you’re probably familiar with what limited immunity is. It’s fairly routine when police and law enforcement are investigating a particular issue and you’re sitting down with them to give fool cooperation, turn over materials, hand over computers, blackberries, whatever. They narrow their scope of their investigation to the issue at hand. So a limited immunity is anything else is irrelevant to them at that. They’re looking at the specific investigation. And that’s what limited immunity means, Chris. I believe you know that. so it’s fairly appropriate and

Clinton’s Campaign Manager Dodges On Hillary’s Sanctuary Cities Position

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook twice refused to give Clinton’s position on sanctuary cities. Partial transcript as follows: TAPPER:  I want to turn to the subject of immigration, because it’s a topic that’s sure to come up tomorrow, it’s a major part of the Trump campaign. I know you have a lot of criticism of Donald Trump’s position. When it comes to Hillary Clinton I have to ask about sanctuary cities, cities where they don’t enforce federal immigration laws and that sometimes means people who are criminals, who are in this country illegally end up getting free and committing worse crimes. It’s a fact that that does happen. Does Hillary Clinton consider sanctuary cities to be a problem? MOOK: Well, first of all, Jake, as you mentioned we do think this is a really important difference between both of the candidates. And Secretary Clinton has released a comprehensive plan for immigration reform. This is something she’s pledged to do in the first 100 days. We cannot have a situation where anybody is coming to this country illegally and committing crimes. And so she has, as I said, put out plans

Flynn: Hillary Clinton Should Not Be Too Big To Jail

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” former Defense Intelligence Agency Director and current adviser to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump retired Lt. Gen Michael Flynn, said Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton should not be too big to jail. Flynn said, “So a couple things. The very last thing that John Podesta just said is no individual too big to jail. That should include people like Hillary Clinton. Five people around her have had — have been given immunity to include her former chief of staff. When you are given immunity, that means you have probably committed a crime. I don’t know how he can sit there and say something like that with all the things that have been going around — just swirling around Hillary Clinton with her e-mails.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Cop Accused of Racism Slams ‘Oppressive Political Correctness’ in London Police

A London cop has accused the capital’s police force of “oppressive political correctness” after it investigated him for racism for telling an abusive pro-Kurdish demonstrator: “You don’t tell me what to do in my country”. Marcus Tyson was supervising a demonstration last month when he was abused by screaming demonstrators shouting “fuck the police” and “get out of here”. He then confronted a female activist and made the statement for which he is being investigated. The officer has now been placed on “restricted duty” by the force’s directorate of professional standards (DPS) while it investigates whether his actions constitute “gross misconduct”. He faces losing his job if he is found guilty. Speaking to the Sunday Times, Mr Tyson said the actions of London’s Metropolitan Police were akin to “Stalinist thought police”, and demanded: “I would like to know upon what basis they regard my statement as being racist — it is purely a statement of fact that this is my country.” “The action the DPS have taken against me is so wildly over the top, it discredits the investigators and brings their judgment into question,” he added. Mr Tyson said in his notes taken at the end of the protest
