WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday she does not support the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), rejecting a central tenet of President Barack Obama’s strategic pivot to Asia.
Clinton said during a campaign swing in Iowa that she is worried about currency manipulation not being part of the agreement and that “pharmaceutical companies may have gotten more benefits and patients fewer.”
WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) – The Democratic minority on a U.S. congressional committee investigating the attack in Benghazi, Libya, intend to defy the committee’s Republican leaders by releasing the transcript of a closed-door interview with a former senior aide to Hillary Clinton, they said on Monday.
The announcement comes six days after Kevin McCarthy, the leader of U.S. House Republicans, went on television to boast that the federally funded investigation had successfully dented Clinton’s poll numbers as she runs for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The latest dump of more than 3,000 emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server show the lighter side of her job leading the State Department.
Tipped by a BBC reporter that Israeli officials were “sounding a bit cocky” on the plane ride home from a March 2010 Washington visit centered on the stalled Middle East peace process, Clinton replied: “They always sound cocky – in the air or on the ground.”
NEW YORK/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A 2011 hacking attack of Google Inc’s (GOOGL.O: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) Gmail prompted Hillary Clinton and her top aides to worry about “antiquated” government-issued laptops and the security of private email accounts widely used by government officials.
Clinton’s use of a private email account while she led the department now hangs over her campaign to become the Democratic nominee for the November 2016 presidential election.
NEW YORK/WASHINGTON, Sept 8 (Reuters) – U.S. presidential
candidate Hillary Clinton for the first time apologized on
Tuesday for using a private email server at her New York home

responsibility,” Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic
Party’s nomination in the 2016 presidential election, said in an

Edward Snowden, the former U.S. spy agency contractor who leaked details of the government’s mass surveillance programs, has weighed in on Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server in her home for her work as secretary of state.
He is not impressed, he said in an interview with Al Jazeera, due to be broadcast in full on Friday, suggesting a double standard is at play.
NEW YORK (Reuters) – “Here’s my personal email,” Hillary Clinton wrote to U.S. special envoy George Mitchell on a summer Sunday in 2010 as he telephoned one European official after another in an effort to keep peace talks between the Israelis and the Palestinians on track.
“Pls use this for reply,” Clinton wrote in her email, sent from the clintonemail.com account she set up on an unsecured, private server in her New York home for her work as secretary of state.
WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) – A longtime friend of Hillary Clinton played an outsized role in advising her on U.S. politics and even encouraged the then-secretary of state to exert influence over senior White House staff.

WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) – An old friend of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton played an outsized role in advising her on U.S. politics and even her dealings with President Barack Obama’s White House despite holding no formal government position.

NEW YORK (Reuters) – For months, the U.S. State Department has stood behind its former boss Hillary Clinton as she has repeatedly said she did not send or receive classified information on her unsecured, private email account, a practice the government forbids.
While the department is now stamping a few dozen of the publicly released emails as “Classified,” it stresses this is not evidence of rule-breaking. Those stamps are new, it says, and do not mean the information was classified when Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner in the 2016 presidential election, first sent or received it.
