Geraghty: Clinton Email Scandal Opened Door to Foreign Spies

Jim Geraghty of National Review writes in his “Morning Jolt” newsletter (subscription required) today that the scandal involving Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account to send and receive all of her official digital correspondence as Secretary of State is a real problem, not just another iteration of ‘gotcha politics.’

Among the many problems associated with Clinton’s use of a private account as her official email address – including, but not limited to, systematic evasion of federal record-keeping rules, thwarting of public FOIA requests, and irretrievably deleting potentially damaging messages – Geraghty points out a potentially even bigger concern.

Hey Congress: No Trillion Dollar Farm Bill in the Lame Duck Print
Tuesday, November 13 2012

In an open letter to the U.S. House of Representatives, the Center for Individual Freedom (“CFIF”) today joined with more than a dozen national free market organizations to urge Congress to reject passage of a long-term Farm Bill in its lame duck session.

“While our organizations have varying goals for farm and food policy, we are united in our conviction that this Congress cannot and should not address a Farm Bill that could cost taxpayers nearly $1 trillion over the next ten years in a lame duck session,” reads the letter.  “A five-year bill will have sweeping fiscal, social, and environmental impacts and should be the result of careful and transparent deliberation.  In our view, this Congress simply does not have the time to undertake such legislation this year,” the letter continues.

The letter was organized by the R Street Institute

In addition to CFIF, the letter was signed by representatives of the R Street Institute, American Commitment, Americans for Prosperity, Club for Growth, Council for Citizens Against Government Waste, Heritage Action for America, Taxpayers Protection Alliance, Taxpayers for Common Sense, Americans for Tax Reform, Cost of Government Center, FreedomWorks and National Taxpayers Union.
