Media urge judge to release Clinton email deposition videos
Recordings are 'most complete and accurate record' of Clinton aides' testimony, news outlets say

news outlets and media organizations are asking a federal judge to "revisit" an order sealing videotapes of testimony top aides to Hillary Clinton gave in a lawsuit related to her use of a private email server as secretary of state.
The access dispute seems likely to evolve quickly into a more politically-explosive question of whether video of Clinton herself testifying should be made public if the judge ultimately orders her to sit for a deposition in the case.

In a letter filed Thursday with U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan, media lawyers argue that videos of Clinton aides and others testifying in the case are of intense, legitimate public interest in light of Clinton's status as the presumptive Democratic nominee for president.
The media submission also argues that the recordings provide the best evidence of testimony given in the course of the Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, superior to transcripts that were publicly released by the conservative group pursuing the suit, Judicial Watch.
"Because a central issue in this case — former Secretary Clinton’s use of a nongovernmental email account while at the State Department — is a central issue in the ongoing presidential race, full access to the depositions taken in this matter is of heightened importance to the public," wrote Bruce Brown and Katie Townsend of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press.

According to FBI crime statistics, 90 percent of black homicides are committed by black people.

FBI Boss Comey Connected To Clinton Foundation – House Calls For a Special Prosecutor
Republicans are demanding answers from FBI boss James Comey.
On Monday, they sent a letter demanding to know why he didn’t recommend federal charges against Hillary Clinton over her use of private email servers. Clinton “clearly placed our nation’s secrets in peril,” the letter states. “No one is above the law, and the American people deserve a more robust explanation for your decision to not recommend criminal charges.”
The letter sent by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, and committee member Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, also mentions emails deleted by Clinton and forensically recovered by the FBI. They want to know if the emails had anything to do with the Clinton Foundation.
James Comey did not recommend federal charges in part because he is connected to the Clinton Foundation through the Swiss bank HSBC.

Special Prosecutor
Comey may be on the periphery of Clinton’s use of foreign policy to raise money for her foundation, but his position at HSBC may explain in part why she received kid glove treatment while others accused of similar crimes were prosecuted. His connection, however tenuous, should be reason enough to revisit the case and appoint a special prosecutor, as Rep. Matt Salmon of Arizona has demanded.
Ohio Republican Mike Turner accused the FBI of being “steeped in political bias” and said there should be an “independent and impartial decision” made about the legality of Clinton’s use of email.
