FBI May "Leak" Clinton Email Probe If DOJ Blocking Continues | Zero Hedge

FBI May "Leak" Clinton Email Probe If DOJ Blocking Continues | Zero HedgeThe feud between the FBI and the Department of Justice over whether or not to proceed with charges against Hillary Clinton in the ongoing email investigation just took an unexpected turn.

Recall that one month ago, we found out that on one hand, the FBI is seemingly hell-bent on chasing down every possibly angle involving Hillary's email abuse, when we reported that one hundred forty-seven FBI agents have been deployed to chase down clues and leads and that the FBI has accelerated the investigation because officials want to avoid the possibility of announcing any action too close to the election. A former Clinton staffer is also cooperating with that investigation, and it’s believed Clinton herself will be questioned.

The flipside has been the Department of Justice which has been stonewalling the probe every step of the way. It hasn't been alone in its unwillingness to pursue Hillary: on April 1, the state department announced that it is suspending its probe of "top secret" Clinton emails.

Article: Washington Launches Its Attack Against BRICS | OpEdNews

Article: Washington Launches Its Attack Against BRICS | OpEdNews Having removed the reformist President of Argentina, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, Washington is now disposing of the reformist President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff.

Washington used a federal judge to order Argentina to sacrifice its debt restructuring program in order to pay US vulture funds the full value of defaulted Argentine bonds that the vulture funds had bought for a few pennies on the dollar. These vultures were called "creditors" who had made "loans" regardless of the fact that they were not creditors and had made no loans. They were opportunists after easy money and were used by Washington to get rid of a reformist government.

President Kirchner resisted and, thus, she had to go. Washington concocted a story that Kirchner covered up an alleged Iranian bombing in Buenos Aires in 1994. This implausible fantasy, for which there is no evidence of Iranian involvement, was fed to one of Washington's agents in the state prosecutor's office, and a dubious event of 22 years ago was used to clear Kirchner out of the way of the American looting of Argentina.

The U.S. also confirms that Israeli government forces are responsible for unlawful killings and the use of excessive force and torture against Palestinians.

Sanders's criticism of Israel is long overdue — RT Op-Edge

Sanders's criticism of Israel is long overdue — RT Op-Edge Bernie Sanders is not only taking on the Washington establishment in his campaign for the Democratic Party presidential nomination, he is also challenging many of the received truths that make up the ideological foundations upon which its power rests.

Of those received truths one of the most sacrosanct is America’s unconditional support for the state of Israel, with the penalty for anyone in US public life who dares question that support, dares question Israel, instant and immediate career death. The fact that Sanders, who also happens to be Jewish, has departed from this ironclad consensus and dared criticize Israel while campaigning for the highest office in the land, this only adds more significance to it.
