As News Focuses On Murdered Va. Reporters, Hillary Takes Responsibility For Private Email.

WASHINGTON (AP) — During the 2012 attack on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, State Department officials in Washington were emailing one another with updates in real time. In the wake of yet another high profile shooting – this one aired on live television – some American politicians have again called for action on gun regulation.Hillary Rodham Clinton said Wednesday that she understood why people had questions about her decision to use only private email while she was secretary of state and that she took responsibility for that decision, a shift from her past remarks about an issue that has dogged her since shortly before she began her presidential campaign.The Democratic presidential candidate has faced scrutiny since a New York Times report revealed she had used a private email account throughout her time at the State Department.

Embedded in those messages were nuggets of classified information, including an apparent reference to a CIA facility that was a closely guarded secret. But the framing that Hillary Rodham Clinton took to lay out her plan here drew the agricultural world into the broader messages of her campaign, touching on everything from immigration to drug addiction. “We have more than 40 million Americans living in small towns in rural America,” Mrs. When the emails were released last year under the Freedom of Information Act, that and other information found to be classified were censored from public view. Clinton told the crowd of more than 275, packed into a tiny meeting room at Morningside College on Wednesday afternoon. “You don’t ignore that, you figure out what we’re going to do to grow together,” she said. — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Wednesday he’s proud of kicking one of the country’s best-known Spanish-language journalists out of an Iowa news conference — his latest clash with the media. ‘‘I think I handled that well.

She has tried a number of mostly failed tactics, including laughing it off, playing the victim card and blaming the whole thing on a “vast right-wing conspiracy.” An FBI probe into the matter has found emails with classified information from the Defense Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency and National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, Fox News reported Tuesday.

Growing together was a central theme: She said that creating more clean energy would be a boon to agriculture, that expanded broadband and Internet access would help rural communities, that comprehensive immigration reform would help stabilize the agricultural work force, and that a growing agriculture sector would help combat the drug dependency and addiction plaguing the country. I got a lot of credit for it,’’ Trump boasted to conservative radio host Laura Ingraham a day after his bodyguards escorted Univision’s Jorge Ramos out of the event. The murder of two Virginia journalists by a disgruntled former coworker dominated the news cycle Wednesday.

Records reviewed by The Associated Press make clear that the leakage of secrets onto unsecure email is a State Department problem dating to the George W. But we are smart enough, compassionate enough to balance legitimate Second Amendment rights concerns with preventive measures and control measures, so whatever motivated this murderer … we will not see more needless, senseless deaths.” “If guns weren’t so readily available, if we had universal background checks, if we could put some time out between the person who got fired, or domestic abuse, or whatever other motivation … maybe we could prevent this kind of carnage.” “This is another example of gun violence that is becoming all too common in communities large and small all across the United States,” he said. “While there is no piece of legislation that will end all violence in this country, there are commonsense things that only Congress can do that we know would have a tangible impact in reducing gun violence in this country. In proclaiming her agricultural bona fides, she recalled her battles as a senator from New York to connect New York City’s lower-income and often hungry population with upstate farmers. Bush went on to criticize Trump’s immigration plan, specifically his proposal to build a massive wall on the Mexican border, calling it impractical and at odds with conservative principles because of its cost. The inspector general for the nation’s intelligence agencies found four emails of a random sample of 40 on her server contained information that was classified, though it wasn’t marked that way at the time.

The first step, she said, was simply convincing those around her in Washington that New York had farmers at all. “A lot of my colleagues in the Senate didn’t believe me,” Mrs. Virginia’s Democratic governor, Terry McAuliffe, a man with close ties to the Clintons, told the Washington Post: “There are too many guns in the hands of people who should not have guns. — Jeb Bush has spent much of his campaign for president trying to prove that he’s not riding the coattails of his brother and father, two former presidents.

And I want to be as transparent as possible which is why I turned 55,000 pages, why I’ve turned over my server.” Clinton has not always addressed the email fracas so directly. Clinton’s use of a home server makes her case unique, but it’s not clear whether the security breach would have been any less had she used government email. But perhaps nothing reflects so favorably on the latest Bush to seek the White House as the difference between how he, in stark contrast to his brother, handled the fury of nature.

Clinton reiterated plans to expand the use of solar panels by half a billion by the end of her first presidential term and to expand biofuel use and research. She became the most passionate, however, when speaking about a cause she brings up regularly on the campaign trail: drug addiction. “I want to focus on the people of rural America,” she said, her voice becoming hushed as she listed the devastation that drugs have caused in parts of the country. “Meth, pills, overdoses, lost lives, broken families.” And finally, before making a pledge about her candidacy and willingness to work across the aisle, Mrs. The first, described by communications director Jennifer Palmieri in an interview with The Huffington Post, is an end-of-summer effort to educate the public on the classification process for national security material.

The second, coming when Congress returns from recess, is to aggressively pivot to policy announcements, from economic and women’s issues to President Barack Obama’s Iran deal, which will receive a vote in September. Morgan Griffith, a Republican congressman representing Virginia published a statement expressing his sadness and offering his prayers for the families of the dead and wounded. While the NRA can make political life difficult for some Democrats, it can utterly destroy Republican careers, especially during primary process when candidates are pursing the most conservative voters in the country. It is unclear how a gun might have helped save the life of Adam Ward, who was shot in the back while filming Alison Parker, who was killed seconds later. On the night of the Benghazi attack on Sept. 11, 2012, department officials emailed one another about extraordinarily sensitive matters, including the movement of Libyan militias and the locations of key Americans.

Many of the emails to Clinton came from state.gov email accounts, noted Steven Aftergood, an expert on classification at the Federation of American Scientists. “So if there is routine security screening and monitoring of incoming and outgoing State Department emails, anything that is classified should have been flagged. But even the middle-tier “secret” network is cumbersome for many in the agency, said officials who would not be quoted when discussing internal security policies. Lots of State Department information is meant for use, sharing and interaction with foreign officials, the vast majority of whom aren’t authorized to receive classified U.S. material.
