FBI chief rebuts GOP: Petraeus case was worse that Clinton

The Hill

By Julian Hattem – 07/07/16 10:58 AM EDT FBI Director James Comey on Thursday rejected the argument from Republicans that the mishandling of classified information by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was worse than the abuses committed by former CIA Director David Petraeus. Despite “great carelessness,” Clinton never gave off signs that she intentionally violated the law through the use of a series of email servers housed in the basement of her New York home, Comey testified before the House Oversight Committee. But Petraeus clearly did show evidence of intentionally violating the law, Comey said. Not only was Petraeus…

UK Iraq inquiry highly critical of Tony Blair

USATODAY

LONDON — Britain joined the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 despite flawed intelligence, “wholly inadequate” planning and no imminent threat from Iraq’s then-leader Saddam Hussein, a long-awaited inquiry concluded Wednesday. The 12-volume, 2.6-million-word report took seven years to complete and was highly critical of formerPrime Minister Tony Blair, but it stopped short of accusing him of going to war illegally. John Chilcot, the retired British government official who led the inquiry, told a news conference in the British capital that “the U.K. chose to join the invasion of Iraq before the peaceful options for disarmament had been exhausted. Military action at that time was not a…

The announcement — which came only about 72…

The Russian jet was shot down, with the loss of the pilot, in November while it took part in the Kremlin’s military campaign in Syria. Ankara said it acted lawfully because the plane had crossed into Turkish air space; Moscow denied that happened. “I want to once again express my sympathy and deep condolences to the family of the Russian pilot…

It wasn’t exactly the sort of response he usually gets after a big show.
