State Dept Defends Claim It Will Take 75 Years to Process Clinton Emails ^ | June 8, 2016 | Leah Barkoukis 

State Department spokesman Mark Toner defended its estimate that it would take 75 years to release the emails from Hillary Clinton’s top aides during her time as secretary of state on Tuesday. He noted that the RNC’s court filing contained an “enormous amount of FOIA requests” that are “very complex.”
“It’s a very broad range involving a number of people over a period of four years,” he said. “It’s not an outlandish estimation believe it or not.”
In March, the RNC filed a pair of lawsuits seeking the emails after having failed to receive the documents from State in requests filed last October and December.
“The Obama administration has failed to comply with records requests in a timely manner as required by law,” Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement at the time.
The RNC's FOIA request is seeking emails from three of Clinton's former aides: Cheryl Mills, Jacob Sullivan and Patrick Kennedy.
"Given the Department's current [Freedom of Information Act] workload and the complexity of these documents, it can process about 500 pages a month, meaning it would take approximately 16-and-2/3 years to complete the review of the Mills documents, 33-and-1/3 years to finish the review of the Sullivan documents, and 25 years to wrap up the review of the Kennedy documents — or 75 years in total," the State Department argued in the filing.

The Trump Attack on Political Correctness

Canada Free Press ^ | 06/08/16 | Timothy Birdnow 

Trump is destroying the leprosy of Political Correctness, created to shut the mouths of the silent majority and to intimidate Republicans. It has reigned far too long. I say, call out the fake Indians and Mexican judges! It's time
Donald Trump is in the soup again. Mr. Trump has liberal race hustlers sputtering a rain of spittle, and has the GOP Establishment jelly legged, knees knocking and lower lips quivering. With two recent comments Mr. Trump has Republicans running for the tall grass, and even Newt Gingrich - a tepid but agreeable supporter - has demanded Trump apologize.
What did Trump say that has everyone turning purple? Well, he started out by calling Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth “Lizzy” Warren Pocahontas, then refusing to apologize for this vile slur.

What Happens If Hillary Clinton Is Indicted? Bernie Sanders Might Not Benefit

Bustle ^ | June 7, 2016 | Joseph D. Lyons 

With the Associated Press calling the Democratic presidential race for Clinton, and the polls for the last primaries in her favor, you might think that there's nothing that could derail her campaign. But there is. It may be a long shot, but it's definitely something Sanders supporters have been praying for as a last-minute Hail Mary: an indictment from the FBI over the private email server Clinton used while secretary of state. The FBI is currently investigating the matter, and if they find evidence that she broke the Espionage Act, they could prosecute. So what happens if Hillary Clinton is indicted?
At this point, only a few diehard Sanders supporters — and some on the right — see this as a possibility. H. A. Goodman, a Huffington Post columnist and Sanders supporter, laid out his case for Clinton's indictment Monday, arguing that she inadvertently broke the law by transferring 22 top-secret emails to her private server, even though they were not marked classified when they were first sent back in 2008. He argues that "'gross negligence' is enough to prosecute," especially in light of the State Department's report that Clinton did not have approval for the private server and was in conflict with new rules put in place in 2009, when she took office.
That would thrill some Sanders-or-bust supporters. The New York Times ran a piece on them, noting that some would even vote for Trump over Clinton. Others promised to vote for a third-party candidate. What they had in common was a hope that an FBI indictment would hand Sanders the nomination. But it's not that simple. Even if Clinton is indicted, that doesn't mean Sanders would become the Democratic nominee....
