Hillary Clinton's Emails a Window Into Benghazi

A batch of Hillary Clinton's personal emails made public on Thursday morning offers a glimpse into her team's initial exchange of information in the wake of the Benghazi attacks, as well as her relationship with longtime confidante Sidney Blumenthal. The State Department plans to release about 850 pages of the emails, which had been handed over to the congressional panel investigating the Benghazi attacks. But on Thursday, the New York Times released about a third of that batch, which Clinton exchanged using a private server. The documents show that, while Clinton used her personal email account to receive information the government calls "sensitive," she did not appear to use her private server to exchange classified information. The documents also show that Clinton received numerous briefing memos about Libya from Blumenthal, a longtime friend of the Clintons who was not employed by the State Department.

Omaha Cop Shot Dead Hours Before Maternity Leave

A Nebraska police officer killed in a shootout while trying to serve a felony arrest warrant Wednesday had been just hours away from taking her 3-month-old daughter home from the hospital and starting maternity leave, NBC News reported. "A life taken too soon," the Omaha police said on their Facebook page, calling seven-year veteran Kerrie Orozco "a top notch police officer" who "gave back to the community in so many ways." Orozco, 29, had delivered Olivia Ruth prematurely in February and had put off taking maternity leave until her baby was due to come home from the hospital. But on Wednesday, she was killed in a shootout that also left a suspect dead, the police chief told The Associated Press. Read »
