Senate sleuths focus on ex-State Department aide in Clinton email ‘cover-up’

Senate sleuths focus on ex-State Department aide in Clinton email ‘cover-up’ As Hillary Clinton seeks to rebound from a highly critical report from the State Department’s inspector general, Senate investigators and a conservative group are zeroing in on newly revealed evidence about the activities of a now retired State Department computer specialist in orchestrating what they charge was a “cover-up” of the former secretary of state’s email practices. The role of John Bentel, whose identity as a key figure in the email probes was first reported by Yahoo News on Wednesday, is expected to be one focus of questioning today when Clinton’s former chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, is deposed in a lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch over the State Department’s handling of Freedom of Information Act requests relating to Clinton’s emails, according to a source close to the case.

G7 told to act on antibiotics as dreaded superbug hits U.S.

Colonies of E. coli bacteria are seen in a microscopic image courtesy of the CDC By Kylie MacLellan and Ben Hirschler ISE-SHIMA, Japan/LONDON (Reuters) - Britain told the G7 industrial powers on Friday to do more to fight killer superbugs as the United States reported the first case in the country of a patient with bacteria resistant to a last-resort antibiotic. U.S. scientists said the infection in a 49-year-old Pennsylvania woman "heralds the emergence of truly pan-drug resistant bacteria" because it could not be controlled even by colistin, an antibiotic reserved for "nightmare" bugs. In Japan, British Prime Minister David Cameron said leading countries needed to tackle resistance by reducing the use of antibiotics and rewarding drug companies for developing new medicines.

Can affirmative consent apps combat campus sexual assault?

Can affirmative consent apps combat campus sexual assault? The creators of YES to SEX, a smartphone app that promises to help “all gender partners get and give a safe sexual consent in as little as 25 seconds,” have released a new platform that allows colleges and universities to customize the application to meet the specific needs of their campuses. YES to SEX founder Wendy Mandell-Geller told Yahoo News that after launching the original version of the app in April, she soon realized its potential to make an impact on university and college campuses. In addition to providing users with an up-to-date guide to giving and receiving sexual consent under Title IX, the app’s new college format can be customized to reflect each school’s policies — as well as its color scheme.

What Obama should do on torture

What Obama should do on torture Like a lot of two-term presidents nearing the last bend in the road, Barack Obama seems guided by equal parts conviction and whimsy these days, without much regard for political consequence. The president has expounded publicly on race and political civility, shaken hands with a Cuban Castro, commuted a slew of sentences for drug offenders, plunged the federal government into the debate over transgender Americans in restrooms. Obama clearly isn’t going to declassify the full text of the Senate’s mammoth, landmark report on torture, and maybe that’s the right call — I don’t know.


Paul Ryan ally doubts speaker will ever fully endorse Trump

American politics has been ‘reformed to death’ He has been called an “intellectual prodigy” and is one of the most influential thinkers and writers in conservative Republican politics. Yuval Levin, founding editor of National Affairs magazine, is also an informal adviser to House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., the most prominent Republican national leader to decline — at least so far — to endorse presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump. Levin also worked as a White House policy adviser to former President George W. Bush and has since been part of a movement within Republican politics to move the party toward a solutions-oriented disposition, in contrast to many in the party whose main goal has been to block the agenda of President Obama and the Democrats.
