British newspaper Daily Mail has a nice write-up about Hillary's reaction to this, as well as the rumor that these 1,000 emails popped up during the FBI's investigation into Fmr. Rep. Weiner, the disgraced husband of Hillary's top aide, Huma Abedin, and their shared laptop. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3884204/Furious-Clinton-goes-war-FBI-director-extraordinary-press-conference-demanding-explains-new-email-probe-without-delay.html

Cooper, the state's attorney general, faced off against Republican Gov. Pat McCrory last week. In the midst of a discussion over government transparency, Cooper pointed to questions surrounding McCrory's handling of a state prison contract.
"If he wants to talk about political contributions, he had a contributor who said he wanted something for his contribution in return. Gov. McCrory gave him a private prison contract over the objections of his staff," Cooper said. "If you want to talk about political contributions, governor, you're the one who now has an FBI criminal investigation.
"McCrory responded that Cooper should "resign right now" for making that allegation.
In fact, McCrory had faced questions from the FBI, but the day after the debate, a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney's office said prosecutors had concluded their probe of the matter in February. McCrory's denial was the first public mention that the probe had concluded.
In the Republican Party's complaint, Chairman Robin Hayes says Cooper should have known the investigation had concluded.
Cooper has such a big mouth for someone whom has refused to do his job and do the legal work of the state by defending the laws the General Assembly passes. Then again, if he did his job, he would have known that the FBI finished its probe of McCrory.

One stone that dates to 1690 was for a 1-year-old child. Lew Keen, of the Newport Historic Cemetery Advisory Commission, says the 12-inch-by-24-inch stone was found in August by Stephanie Pallas, of Upper Darby, Pennsylvania.
The others were from 1835 for a Newport woman and her children. Those were found in a Newport yard in the 1980s and stowed in a basement until the homeowner alerted the commission in the spring.
Keen says people would take stones from graveyards for patios, well covers and other uses.
Who does such a thing as stealing head stones? And across state lines? Whatever happened to cemeteries being hallowed ground, and shouldn't be disturbed, except for burying another body, or to visit a dead relative's or friend's grave site? Some people leave much to be desired. I seriously don't understand the mindset that goes into stealing someone's grave marker, much less to use as a well cover, when buying a big stone from a home improvement store will do the trick.

This will be interesting.
"The “Danney Williams thing” is the musty allegation that Bill Clinton fathered an illegitimate black son. Naturally, it’s bubbled up into this year’s election cycle. The Daily Mail went there. InfoWars went there. The Drudge Report went there, too. The chairman of Utah’s Republican Party went there, live on CNN. It’s a reasonable guess that Steve Bannon, the CEO of Donald Trump’s campaign, would like to go there for Wednesday night’s presidential debate.
The rumor has bounced around since Clinton’s first run for president. In The War Room, a 1993 documentary about Clinton’s campaign team, a scene shows George Stephanopoulos fielding a phone call from Denari, then a Ross Perot campaign official apparently in possession of a fat dossier on Clinton’s supposed love child. With the rumor back in the news, I thought I’d track down Denari to find out how he’d gotten his hands on that dossier, and what he did with it after he hung up with Stephanopoulos."

FBI, DOJ roiled by Comey, Lynch decision to let Clinton slide by on emails, says insider | Fox News: "The source, who spoke to FoxNews.com on the condition of anonymity, said FBI Director James Comey’s dramatic July 5 announcement that he would not recommend to the Attorney General’s office that the former secretary of state be charged left members of the investigative team dismayed and disgusted. More than 100 FBI agents and analysts worked around the clock with six attorneys from the DOJ’s National Security Division, Counter Espionage Section, to investigate the case. “No trial level attorney agreed, no agent working the case agreed, with the decision not to prosecute -- it was a top-down decision,” said the source, whose identity and role in the case has been verified by FoxNews.com. A high-ranking FBI official told Fox News that while it might not have been a unanimous decision, “It was unanimous that we all wanted her [Clinton’s] security clearance yanked.”"
