Examining a possible violation of the Espionage Act


An FBI probe into whether Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information on her private server has been described as “extremely serious” and has required the help of the agency’s best investigators.

The investigation, which Clinton has dismissed as a routine “security inquiry,” is examining a possible violation of the Espionage Act, according to a report by Fox News.

Investigators are looking to see whether Clinton should have been aware of the sensitive nature of emails circulating on her private network, regardless of whether the emails were marked classified.

Clinton has repeatedly defended her handling of the material by claiming none of the emails were marked classified at the time they were sent.

But intelligence experts say the absence of markings wouldn’t absolve an official of responsibility if he or she stumbled upon national defense information that should be classified.

Scrutiny of Clinton’s email activities has heated up since the FBI took custody of Clinton’s private server earlier this month.

The State Department is set to release thousands of Clinton’s emails Monday, with a handful expected to be designated classified before publication. Dozens of the former secretary’s emails have already been marked classified.



Shooter shot the deputy in the back of the head and then three times in the back


HOUSTON, Texas — A Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy was shot execution style at a gas station while reportedly in full uniform. The deputy was filling up his patrol car. Witnesses told Breitbart Texas the shooter shot the deputy in the back of the head and then three times in the back. This tragedy comes within days of a group of Black radicals calling for “lynching whites and killing cops,” as Breitbart Texas recently reported. Witnesses also told Breitbart Texas that the shooter was a black male.

The shooting occurred late Friday evening in Northwest Harris County just outside of Houston. One witness who spoke to this writer said he knew the deputy personally and had just spoken with him about five minutes before the shooting.

He said he saw the man shoot his friend and speed off in a red pickup truck. He said he followed the truck for about two miles until he lost it at a major highway intersection. The truck turned onto Highway 6 from West Road and disappeared.

Deputies in the area confirmed they were indeed searching for a red Ford Ranger pickup truck.

Two teenage girls told Breitbart Texas they saw the shooter fire one shot into the back of the head of the deputy who was simply getting gas for his vehicle. After the deputy fell, they heard three or four other shots. According to the first witness, those shots were fired into the deputy’s back.

The execution of the deputy came just days after black radicals went on an internet radio show hosted from Texas and called for the lynching of white people and the killing of cops to “turn the tide” against blacks being killed by cops. Breitbart Texas reported on Friday morning the details of the radio show and the comments that were made.

One black man spoke up saying they needed to kill “cops that are killing us. The other black male on the show said, “That will be the best method right there.”

The shooter is described as male, dark complexion, five-foot-ten to six-foot. He was said to be wearing a white t-shirt and red shorts.

Witnesses said a LifeFlight helicopter came and picked up the deputy to take him to the hospital, but they believe he was dead at the scene.

The first witness showed this reporter a photo of the deputy with his children. He was highly emotional as he was speaking. “He was the best guy you can imagine as a friend,” the witness said. “He was always coming to me and asking if he could do anything for me.”

Breitbart Texas will follow this developing story.



Surveillance footage clearly shows suspect is African-American


Some media outlets are refusing to identify the race of the suspect involved in the murder of a sheriff’s deputy in Houston last night, despite the fact that he is clearly black.

At around 8:30pm last night, Deputy Darren Goforth was pumping gas into his vehicle in full uniform before he was approached by a man who shot him from behind multiple times.

“Police described the suspect as a dark-complexioned male who is believed to be between 20 and 25 years old, and stands about 5-foot-10 to 6-feet tall,” reports the Associated Press.
Surveillance footage of the suspect clearly shows that he is black.

Are we at a point now in America where it is politically incorrect to identify the race of wanted murderers?

If the killer was white, would the AP describe him as a “light-complexioned male”?

The murder took place just days after a group of black radicals called for “lynching whites and killing cops,” and less than 72 hours after Bryce Williams gunned down TV reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward live on air.

In his manifesto, Williams said the murder was his contribution to starting a “race war” in America.

Until the suspect in last night’s shooting has been caught it will be impossible to determine his motive, but the random nature of the incident suggests there’s every chance it could be related to ongoing racial tensions that have been fueled by both the media and the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement.

“We’ve been warned of things like this, because of public sentiment nationally and events over the last few years,” said Bob Goerlitz, president of the Harris County Deputies Organization. “It’s just horrific. That’s the only way to describe it.”



Motive for the shooting has yet to be determined

by FOX NEWS | AUGUST 29, 2015

Authorities have charged a 30-year-old man with capital murder, after they say he ambushed a Texas county sheriff’s deputy at a suburban Houston gas station in an attack motivated by “absolute madness.”

Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman identified the man in a news conference Saturday afternoon as Shannon J. Miles, who is in police custody.

Hickman told reporters that  Miles had a previous record, including charges of resisting arrest and trespassing.

Authorities however said they are not sure of the motive, in what Hickman has described as a “cold-blooded assassination” of Deputy Darren Goforth.

Hickman said earlier on Saturday that surveillance video showed there were people who may have seen the shooting of Goforth several times as he was filling up his patrol car about 8:30 p.m. Friday.

Hickman and District Attorney Devon Anderson both had strong words for what they said was an unprovoked attack targeting law enforcement, while touching on the recent climate of tension between civilians and law enforcement.

“We’ve heard black lives matter, all lives matter. Well, cops’ lives matter, too,” Hickman said.

Anderson said that there are bad individuals in every field, but that “there should not be open warfare on law enforcement officers.”

Goforth, 47, was near a gas pump when the gunman approached him from behind and opened fire, Harris County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Ryan Sullivan told The Associated Press.

Hickman said Goforth was a “dedicated law enforcement officer” who had been a on the force for 10 years. He had a wife and two children, 12 and 5.

“In my 45 years in law enforcement, I can’t recall another incident so cold-blooded and cowardly,” Hickman said.

Sheriff’s office spokesman Deputy Thomas Gilliland said Goforth had traveled to the Chevron station where the shooting happened, after responding to a routine car accident.

“He was pumping into his vehicle, and the male suspect came up behind him and shot the deputy multiple times,” Gilliland told the Houston Chronicle. “The deputy fell to the ground, the suspect came over and shot the deputy again multiple times as he lay on the ground.”

Fox affiliate KRIV reported Goforth was shot once in the head and three times in the back.

The Texas Department of Public Safety and the Houston Police Department were also involved in the search for the Miles.

“This is a very tough moment right now for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office,” Gilliland said. “Keep us in your prayers and in your thoughts.”

“Bob Goerlitz, president of the Harris County Deputies Organization, said the incident was “shocking.”

“We’ve been warned of things like this, because of public sentiment nationally and events over the last few years … It’s just horrific. That’s the only way to describe it.”
