FBI Director James Comey won't recommend charges against Hillary Clinton for using private email servers when she was secretary of state. But Comey dismantled the defense Clinton's been using for over a year in the matter, jabbed her in her political weak spot -- trustworthiness and judgement -- and practically cut an ad for Donald Trump.
In delivering his news, Comey was brutal: Clinton did send and receive classified material on the servers, she and her staff were "extremely careless" and she should have known a private email system was no place to conduct sensitive government business. Clinton may be out of legal trouble, but politically she's more exposed than ever. Yesterday was the day the Dems had been waiting for: Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama tag teaming it on the campaign trail.
And it pretty much turned out the way the Team Clinton wanted, with the President firing up supporters in Charlotte, North Carolina. Not a word though about Clinton's email woes or the verbal smackdown see above from James Comey. But Donald Trump couldn't stop talking about Clinton and her email during his rally last night in Raleigh.
Trump, gleefully tossing out his "Crooked Hillary" mantra, said the FBI's decision proves "our system is totally rigged" and accused -- without any proof -- Clinton of bribing the U. The University of Tennessee's doing a better job of teaching students about sexual assault prevention and responding to assault claims.
Eight female students sued after reporting sexual or physical assault by student athletes and said Tennessee had a rape culture on campus. Tennessee denied this and didn't admit to any wrongdoing as part of the settlement, but it will hire six more people for Title IX regulations that bar sex discrimination at universities that receive federal funds compliance jobs.
It's the seventh-largest jackpot of all time, so cue the long lines at gas stations and the slightly delusional guy or gal who thinks buying hundreds of tickets will help them beat the 1 in million odds. If you're depending on lottery winnings to fund your retirement and the kids' college fund, you better get busy: They chased you off Facebook and Instagram with their "old people" nonsense; now the adults are taking over Snapchat too.
Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump said the lack of charges showed the "system is rigged. A South African judge on Wednesday sentenced Oscar Pistorius to six years in prison for the murder of his girlfriend, law graduate and model Reeva Steenkamp.
Judge Thokozile Masipa deviated from the prescribed minimum sentence of 15 years, saying a longer sentence would "not serve justice" given Pistorius' remorse, and the 12 months he already served.
She also described the double-amputee Olympic athlete as a "fallen hero" who has "lost his career" since the killing. He initially was found guilty of manslaughter but the conviction was upgraded to murder on appeal. Obama praised Clinton, saying no candidate has ever been more qualified for the presidency, and that the other side — the GOP's Donald Trump — "has nothing to offer. Donald Trump acknowledged that Saddam Hussein was "a bad guy — a really bad guy," but praised the late Iraqi dictator's efficiency in fighting terrorists.
He did that so good. They didn't read them the rights. Today, Iraq is Harvard for terrorism," the presumptive Republican presidential nominee said at a rally. Politicians in both parties bristled, with House Speaker Paul Ryan calling Hussein "one of the 20th century's most evil people" and Hillary Clinton's campaign saying Hussein was a "sponsor of terrorism.
A former Army National Guard member in Virginia has been accused of plotting a domestic terrorist attack for the Islamic State. The suspect, Mohamad Bailor Jalloh, was arrested Sunday and made his first court appearance on Tuesday.

A caller told police that a man selling CDs had threatened him with a gun.
A cellphone video showed two police officers confronting Sterling. One used a stun gun on him, then both tackled him as he fought to get free, and one shot him several times. The store's owner said Sterling was not holding a gun, but officers removed one from his pocket after the shooting. Under the settlement, UT admits no guilt, but will appoint an independent commission to review sexual assault prevention programs and federal Title IX rules. The white supremacist group has been trying for years to get its name on "Adopt-A-Highway" signs along a mile-long section of a state road in Union County near the North Carolina line.
