Debating Campus Carry in the Columbus Dispatch (Ohio)


Dr. John Lott debated Ohio State Rep. Kristin Boggs (D) about whether college campuses should be gun-free zones in the pages of the Columbus Dispatch.  Rep. Boggs' piece is available here.  Dr. Lott's is here:
Ohio State University is still reeling from the attack last week. A terrorist followed the Islamic State playbook as he drove his car into a crowd of students and slashed others with a knife — 12 people were injured. Fortunately, a campus police officer was able to shoot the attacker in a record time of less than two minutes. 
University President Michael Drake took this as evidence that only campus police should be armed on campus. Police are very important, but they virtually always arrive after the attack has occurred and they have an extremely difficult job stopping terrorists — having a uniform is often akin to wearing a neon sign saying "shoot me first." 
This latest attack raises a fundamental question: Would you feel safer posting a sign announcing your home is a gun-free zone? Criminals don’t obey these signs. In fact, to criminals, gun-free zones look like easy targets. So why do we display these signs in public places? 
Some in the Ohio legislature are considering whether to lift the statewide ban on permitted concealed handguns at universities. Opponents’ fears over this are exactly the same as their fears about the original permitted concealed-handgun law, and they are just as wrong. 
Today, 12 states have laws mandating that public college campuses allow permitted concealed handguns. An additional 21 states leave it up to the university. Prior to the early 1990s, states allowing concealed handguns didn’t have legal restrictions, and there weren’t any problems on school property.
Permit holders are extremely law-abiding, committing any type of firearms-related violation at at a rate of just thousandths of one percentage point, and most violations are trivial. A study by the Crime Prevention Research Center found that college-age permit holders in Michigan, Nevada, and Texas are at least as responsible as older permit holders. . . .

While the media is focusing on the single Trump elector who says that he will not vote for Trump, what about all the faithless Clinton Electors?

Before the election two Clinton Electors refused to support Hillary Clinton.  All the focus is now on Trump elector, Christopher Suprun.  From Vox on November 6th:
Robert Satiacum, a former Bernie Sanders supporter, told the Seattle Times that he will refuse to support Clinton no matter what. A second elector from Washington state, Bret Chiafalo, is saying that he may or may not follow his state’s results.  
“No, no, no on Hillary. Absolutely not. No way,” said Satiacum in a telephone interview with the newspaper, which reached him as he was protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline. “I hope it comes down to a swing vote and it’s me. ... Good. She ain’t getting it. Maybe it’ll wake this country up.” 
Satiacum and Chiafalo are Democratic elector candidates, meaning they’ll be responsible for casting two Electoral College votes for Washington if Clinton wins the state. While they could face criminal charges for defying the state’s election results, Satiacum and Chiafalo can still, bizarrely, use their Electoral College votes to support whomever they personally choose. . . .
More recently, P. Bret Chiafalo,  has reiterated his opposition to Clinton.  From Politico:
P. Bret Chiafalo, a Washington State elector who has already declared his opposition to Hillary Clinton 
A third Democrat elector from Washington state has made a similar pledge: Levi Guerra
Washington elector refuses to vote for Clinton in attempt to keep Trump out of White House
There are also four such faithless electors from Colorado, though these electors are only doing this to try to stop Trump, not because they are upset with Clinton.
Polly Baca, a former state senator from Colorado, . . . . Bob Nemanich, a high school math teacher from Colorado Springs, Jerad Sutton of Greeley, also a math teacher, and Micheal Baca, a 24-year-old grad student who is not related to Polly Baca. . . . . .

Reddit CEO Steve Huffman caught editing users’ comments, he rewrote posts, replacing his name with others in Trump discussion



Will Reddit recover?  While the computer industry is covering this story, relatively few of the major mainstream media have covered it. From The Washington Examiner: 
The CEO of Reddit [Steve Huffman] has admitted that he edited comments in a pro-Trump discussion board, saying he "messed with" some of the comments "for about an hour," and has apologized. 
The Reddit users, known as "redditors," were already seething this week when the site that describes itself as "the front page of the Internet" banned the "Pizzagate" discussion board, where a conspiracy theory was being floated about Hillary Clinton running a pedophilia ring. Pizzagate went down due to a violation of "content policy" after users began posting the personal information of real people who were tied into the theory, like a pizza restaurant owner in Washington, after which they reportedly received death threats. . . . .
But redditors using the popular pro-Trump subreddit called "r/The_Donald" seemed particularly upset with what they viewed as unnecessary censorship, and slung a flurry of disparaging comments in Huffman's direction. Examples of the insults included "fuck u/spez," a play off his Reddit username u/spez. Others called him a "cuck," which is a word, popularized in the alt-right, that accuses one of showing weakness and which has racist undertones. . . . .

Hollywood begins massive assault on gun ownership

These movies and television shows that are pushing gun control make no attempt to treat the arguments on the other side seriously.

"Miss Sloane" -- focuses on a battle-hardened female lobbyist who gives herself the Herculean challenge of taking on the gun lobby

The movie opens on December 9th.  Is already getting a huge amount of publicity simply because it has a political message that the liberal media likes.  Just from the trailer it appears as if they make the NRA look like a bunch of evil guys, not people who really care about letting the most vulnerable people in society have a chance to defend themselves and their family.




"The Senator's Wife" -- it is still listed as "in-development" -- "Harvey Weinstein promised that an upcoming film he’s making, starring Meryl Streep, will make the National Rifle Association “wish they weren’t alive” during an interview with Howard Stern earlier this week, and now it has a title."  
"Weinstein described the film as a 'big movie like a ‘Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,' which he hopes will make audiences think: 'Gun stocks — I don’t want to be involved in that stuff. It’s going to be like crash and burn.'”
This movie's fate may depend on what happens with "Miss Sloane."

Unfortunately, these pushes aren't alone.
gun control groups point to NetFlix’s House of Cards and CBS’ The Good Wife. Everytown worked with House of Cards to push gun control during season four of the series, and “the Brady Campaign consulted on an episode of The Good Wife for a gun control campaign, as well.

Broad range of company stocks soar after Trump election win

Remember the claims by Justin Wolfers and Eric Zitzewitz that a Trump win would crash the stock markets? Well, the opposite has occurred.

You get an idea of the types of industries that have been most harmed by President Obama and which ones will be helped the most by Trump see the stocks that have gone up the most.

From USA Today:



Trump’s call for lower taxes, fewer regulations on businesses and government-financed infrastructure projects are viewed as a boon for smaller companies. . . .
From the Wall Street Journal:
Shares of banks, industrials and health-care companies propelled the Dow Jones Industrial Average to 19000 on Tuesday. The bets on those sectors largely reflect investors’ expectations of looser regulation, and higher growth and interest rates under a Trump administration. . . . 
Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (contributed 240.99 points to the Dow industrials since Nov. 4) and J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. (73.76 points) 
The two banks have been big factors in the blue-chip index’s rally this month, largely because of the improved outlook for bank earnings and the rebound in long-term bond yields, which can make lending activity more profitable.That has particularly helped J.P. Morgan, the largest bank in the nation by both assets and market value. Since the presidential election, bond yields have risen and the gap between long- and short-dated debt has widened. That should help banks’ income because it increases the difference between what lenders charge on loans and pay out on deposits. . . . 
UnitedHealth Group Inc. (99.64 points) 
The largest U.S. health insurer has struggled to eke out profitability from its Affordable Care Act plans. UnitedHealth Group has said it intends to withdraw from nearly all of the health-law marketplaces next year amid anticipated annual losses of about $850 million on ACA plans. Other insurers have also pulled back from their coverage areas under the law, leaving many counties with only one participating insurer and increased premiums. President-elect Donald Trump has pledged to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act. Still, the law has also resulted in a Medicaid expansion, bringing new customers to the insurer. In its latest quarter, the company added 9% more Medicaid members.  . . .

Looks like massive vote fraud with absentee ballots in North Carolina

The very close North Carolina gubernatorial election may very well have been decided by vote fraud with absentee ballots.  This might explain why Democrats say that vote fraud doesn't occur:
The North Carolina gubernatorial election between incumbent Republican Gov. Pat McCrory and Attorney General Roy Cooper has triggered a recount, with Cooper ahead by 5,000 votes. Many more ballots are to be counted, but the whole process is fraught with controversy. Cortney wrote earlier today that there could be some funny business with the vote counts in Durham and Bladen counties. Now, McCrory’s campaign site said they’ve filed election protests in 11 more counties:
Formal protests are being filed to challenge potentially fraudulent absentee ballots cast for Roy Cooper and other Democrats in 11 additional counties. These protests follow the discovery of a North Carolina Democrat Party-funded political action committee which appears to have paid individuals to fill out and witness hundreds of fraudulent absentee ballots for Democrats including Roy Cooper in Bladen County.
This has happened lots of times before.  Here are a couple of past examples, though the Pennsylvania one is most interesting.

Libertarian VP nominee Bill Weld:"Libertarian party pulls substantially more from Mr. Trump"


Libertarian VP nominee Bill Weld claims:"my belief is that the libertarian party pulls substantially more from Mr. Trump" @ 2:41 mark (video is available here).

I had heard that Weld has been raising money with this message as a way of getting those who want Hillary to win to donate money. Consistent with that, it also just so happens that the big dollars that the libertarians have been spending have apparently been on conservative talk radio.


The New York Times also has an op-ed saying that the Libertarians will tilt the election to Hillary Clinton.
With just a few days before Election Day and all eyes fixed on the two leading candidates, it’s easy to overlook a remarkable fact: The Libertarian candidate for president, Gary Johnson, may tilt the election for Hillary Clinton. . . .
As evidence, note that without the Libertarians and Green Party in the race, Trump is down by 1.8% as of Sunday, November 6th at Real Clear Politics.  With the Libertarians and Green Party in the race, Trump is down 2.2%.  Assuming that the Greens 1.8% are taken entirely from Hillary, to get a net loss of 0.4% from Trump you have to have 3.5% of the Libertarians vote come from Trump and 1.3% come from Hillary (73% of their vote from Trump and 27% from Hillary).

A machine gun that "it's nearly impossible to prevent its production"

Gun control advocates don't seem to realize how gun control laws primarily prevent law-abiding citizens, not criminals from getting guns.  It isn't just an issue of smuggling guns.  It is also a question of being able to produce them, even machine guns.  Israel can't stop domestic terrorists from making their own machine guns.  From The Times of Israel:
The homemade or craft-produced rudimentary automatic weapon has been used in the majority of shooting attacks on Israeli civilians and security personnel. It’s not accurate and it has a limited range, but it’s cheap and more than powerful enough to cause mayhem and death — and it’s nearly impossible to prevent its production. . . . 
While some more advanced rifles and firearms require specialized tools, the Carlo has remained so popular because of how little machinery and technical know-how is required to produce it, according to N.R. Jenzen-Jones, director of Armament Research Services (ARES), a specialized technical intelligence consultancy. 
A drill press, some welding equipment and blueprints from the internet are all that’s needed to create one of these potentially devastating weapons, a fact that presents a real challenge for Israel and countries around the world that are trying to prevent such guns from winding up in the hands of terrorists and criminals. . . .

Dead Voters Still being Registered & Voting in Chicago years after their death

From CBS 2 in Chicago.
Susie Sallee was buried in 1998. Yet records show she voted in Chicago 12 years later.
Victor Crosswell died in 1994, but records show he’s voted six times since then. 
And then there’s Floyd Stevens. Records show he’s voted 11 times since his death in 1993. 
“It’s crazy,” Sharon Stevens Anderson, Stevens’ daughter, tells CBS 2’s Pam Zekman. “I don’t see how people can be able to do something like that and get away with it.” 
Those are just a few of the cases CBS 2 Investigators found by merging Chicago Board of Election voter histories with the death master file from the Social Security Administration. 
In all, the analysis showed 119 dead people have voted a total of 229 times in Chicago in the last decade. . . . 
Take Tadeusz Ciesla. Records show he voted in 2010. 
But his nephew Marek Ciesla says that’s impossible because he died in 1998. . . .
Of course, this is nothing like the 100,000 fraudulent votes cast in 1982.
the U.S. Attorney in Chicago at the time, Daniel Webb, estimated that at least 100,000 fraudulent votes (10 percent of all votes in the city) had been cast. 
Another example: 1,046 illegal aliens were discovered to be registered to vote in eight Virginia counties, but this number only included those who turned themselves  for being improperly registered.

Another example: In 56 counties, Indiana state police "believe there could be hundreds of fraudulent voter registration records with different combinations of made up names and addresses with people’s real information."

Another example: In 2012, 731 Pennsylvania voters may have voted twice.

Yet more Dem vote fraud, Pennsylvania State Police Stage Voter Fraud Sting

From the Philadelphia Inquirer:
Pennsylvania state police have raided a Delaware County political field office seeking evidence of possible voter-registration fraud, according to court records. 
In a warrant filed late last week in County Court, investigators said they were seeking documents, financial information, and lists of employees at the Norwood office of FieldWorks LLC, a national organization that often does street work for Democrats, records show. . . . 
agents also were looking for "templates . . . utilized to construct fraudulent voter registration forms" and "completed voter registration forms containing same or similar identifying information of individuals on multiple forms." 
A Delaware County judge on Friday afternoon signed the search warrant, but it was not known when it was executed. The warrant application was approved by the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office. Jeff Johnson, a spokesman for the Attorney General's Office, declined to comment. . . . .  
FieldWorks describes itself as "a nationally recognized grassroots organizing firm founded to help progressive organizations, advocacy groups, and members of the Democratic family take their public engagement and electoral strategies to the next level." It was founded in 2001, according to its promotional information online.
The company did not respond to requests for comment on which campaigns or political groups have hired them to work in Pennsylvania. 
In 2012, FieldWorks' voter registration efforts in Ohio sparked some controversy. . . . .
More examples of vote fraud are here, here, and here.

Piece in the Reno Gazette-Journal: "Mistakes, consequences if Question 1 passes"





With the latest polls showing Bloomberg's initiative on gun control a much closer race, 49% for Bloomberg initiative and 45% against (from CBS Channel 8 in Las Vegas), this piece will help voters make a better informed decision.  From today's Reno Gazette-Journal:
Let’s say a stalker is threatening a female friend of yours. She asks you if she can borrow your handgun. She is trained and has no criminal record. Should you loan her your gun? 
If you live in Nevada, loaning her your gun may soon land you in prison. Exception is made only for cases of “imminent” danger — where her stalker is literally right in front of her at that very moment. 
And forget about Boy Scout shooting trips, where adults lend troops shotguns and rifles so the scouts can earn their firearm merit badges. Stick with this annual ritual and those adult leaders may soon find themselves in prison.
Those are just a couple of the hidden consequences if Nevada voters pass Question 1 on Tuesday, Nov. 8th. 
Everyone wants to keep criminals from getting guns. But the current background check system is a mess. It primarily disarms our most vulnerable citizens, particularly law-abiding minorities. Virtually every time the government stops someone from buying a gun, it is done mistakenly. We're not talking here about preventing guns from falling into the wrong hands — these are people who are legally eligible to buy a gun. 
Gun control advocates constantly claim nationwide background checks have stopped 2.4 million prohibited people from buying a gun. But what they should really say is there were 2.4 million "initial denials." And over 96 percent of "initial denials" are errors that are dropped during just the first two stages of review. More cases are dropped later. 
It is one thing to stop a felon from buying a gun. It is quite another to stop a law-abiding citizen from buying a gun simply because his name is similar to that of a felon. 
That massive error rate occurs because government background checks focus only on two pieces of information: names and birth dates, ignoring social security numbers and addresses. The government looks for phonetically similar names (e.g., “Smith” and “Smythe” are assumed to be the same) and even ignores different middle names. 
These mistakes affect certain racial groups more than others. Hispanics are more likely to share names with other Hispanics; the same is true of blacks. Because 30 percent of black males are forbidden from buying guns because of their criminal records, law-abiding African-American men more often have their names confused with those of prohibited people. . . .

Newest piece in National Review: "National Democrats Slander Minnesota’s Jason Lewis"


I have a new piece in National Review that starts this way:
Desperate Democrat Angie Craig is accusing Jason Lewis of justifying rape and slavery.  
Rarely has an electorate been subject to such a brazen and transparent example of raw political ambition and outright duplicity than those unfortunate souls living in Minnesota’s second congressional district.  
While the race for the hotly contested open seat, which covers the southern half of the Twin Cities metro region and areas to its southeast, remains a “toss up” between Republican Jason Lewis and Democrat Angie Craig, according to the Cook Political Report — it has been the campaign of Craig and her Democrat surrogates at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), along with backers such as the Soros family, Nancy Pelosi, and Al Franken, which has engaged in a campaign of smears, innuendo, and outright lies so deliberately dishonest that Frank Underwood of House of Cards fame would surely hesitate. 
The lies began with a blogger, then writing for the Star Tribune, who has vainly tried to ride the Democrat’s coat tails back to relevancy. It continued with a complacent and incurious press satisfied with regurgitating press releases rather than doing its job and correcting the record. 
To their credit (as you shall see), a few reporters did finally point out the obvious — but, as the saying goes, a lie can travel around the world before the truth gets out the door. That is especially the case when the lie is backed by upwards of $5 million (more than all but three candidates for the U.S. House and about five times more than Lewis is spending) from a collection of individuals so scurrilous that they are eager to finance a campaign that will literally do and say anything to buy an election.  
By knowingly taking her opponent’s words out of context in a blizzard of utterly misleading television ads, Craig has disqualified herself from ever being trusted with a position of power. Her suggestion that Lewis’s book on federalism, Power Divided Is Power Checked, of which I wrote the forward, had anything to do with promoting slavery is in fact an outright lie. . . .

Vote fraud in California: 83 ballots sent to the same address, an elderly neighbor’s two-bedroom apartment

From Malia Zimmerman at Fox News has this story.  No explanation from the Registrar's office why this many ballots going to the same address didn't cause
Jerry Mosna was gardening outside his San Pedro, Calif., home Saturday when he noticed something odd: Two stacks of 2016 ballots on his mailbox. 
The 83 ballots, each unused, were addressed to different people, all supposedly living in his elderly neighbor’s two-bedroom apartment. 
“I think this is spooky,” Mosna said. “All the different names, none we recognize, all at one address.” 
His wife, Madalena Mosna, noted their 89-year-old neighbor lives by herself, and, “Eighty people can’t fit in that apartment.” 
They took the ballots to the Los Angeles Police Department, but were directed to the post office. They felt little comfort there would be an investigation, and called another neighbor, John Cracchiolo – who contacted the Los Angeles County Registrar's office.  
A spokeswoman for the Registrar said the office will investigate. Both Cracchiolo and Jerry Mosna told FoxNews.com they think they stumbled upon a case of fraud.
“Yes, there is voter fraud. We saw it with our own eyes,” Cracchiolo said. . . .

Obama reportedly used pseudonym to email Hillary Clinton on her private email server

President Obama apparently used a pseudonym to hide his emails with Hillary Clinton on her private server.  Given that almost everything that the president sends out is considered classified, using the pseudonym may have been done to hide that he was involved in committing a crime.
President Obama used a pseudonym when sending or receiving emails through the private server system Hillary Clinton used as secretary of state, according to nearly 200 pages of documents released Friday by the FBI. 
Included in the documents are notes from an April 2016 interview with long-time Clinton aide Huma Abedin, conducted in connection with the FBI’s two-year investigation into Clinton’s use of the private server for official correspondence. 
One note was about the FBI showing Abedin an email address “believed to be a pseudonym used by the President,” as reported by Politico and other news-gathering agencies. 
Abedin said she didn’t recognize the name and “expressed her amazement” that Obama apparently used a pseudonym. 
She also exclaimed, “How is this not classified?” according to the documents. . . .
federal lawyers will not release the emails, citing executive privilege. . . .
Another interesting story that came up recently was Chelsea Clinton use of the pseudonym "Diane Reynolds" in her emails.  Possibly the most famous exchange between Chelsea and Hillary involved discussing the Benghazi attack.

The Washington Post explains why famous people might legitimately want to use pseudonyms to protect their privacy.  
How does the alias-at-a-hotel system work? Fake names are as useful to protect against staff as against the outside world, Danger pointed out, writing: "Staff is trained and required to sign confidentially agreements about guests overall, but when it's really big name sometimes they can get excited and forget." But why does it matter? Paparazzi, for one. "Paps often try to pay line-level hotel employees for inside info (room numbers, etc)," Danger said. "Leaking that info was a fireable offense at our property." 
It's not only to shield celebrities from the paparazzi, but from stalkers, those horrible people from the media, and other guests. Or political opponents, according to Carlos. "We have had members of royal families who don’t want anyone to know where they are for political reasons." Clearly it is not the case that Chelsea Clinton is from a royal family and wouldn't want to be seen in Ottumwa, Iowa for political reasons.

Politicians who are being sentenced for crimes point to their efforts to push for gun control as reasons that they should have leniency? Seriously?

At her sentencing hearing, when Former Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane was sentenced Monday to 10 to 23 months in jail for orchestrating an illegal news leak to damage a political enemy, her lawyer argued for leniency because she supported gun control? From the Philadelphia Inquirer:
Kane's first year was marked by political and public relations successes. She drew attention for her stands in support of marriage equality and gun control and for crippling Republican Gov. Tom Corbett's move to privatize the lottery - all positions her lawyer cited Monday in arguing for house arrest. . . .
Former Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos also has been making a similar argument.
As he tries to avoid a prison sentence, convicted former Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos is pointing to the SAFE Act as evidence of his political courage. . . . 
Skelos played a key role in the passage of the SAFE Act, which included a broader ban on assault weapons and tougher penalties for illegal gun possession. It also limited the number of bullets in a magazine to seven, but that provision was struck down in court.
Then the Senate majority leader, Skelos allowed the bill to a floor for a vote, where it passed with votes from Democrats and a handful of Republicans on Long Island, including Skelos. 
The SAFE Act is opposed by conservatives and groups representing firearms owners, particularly those upstate, who were frequently critical of Skelos' decision and paint him as a traitor. 
"We want to tell Dean Skelos: Go home," Buffalo businessman Carl Paladino, the 2010 GOP candidate for governor, said at a 2013 rally against the SAFE Act. "Get another vocation. Go work at the car wash. Get the hell out of here."

Cases where Democrats point to vote fraud

From the New York Post:
The Manhattan Democratic representative on the city’s Board of Elections was caught on a secret video slamming Mayor Bill de Blasio’s municipal ID program as contributing to “all kinds of fraud” — including at the polls. 
“He gave out ID cards, de Blasio. That’s in lieu of a driver’s license, but you can use it for anything,” Commissioner Alan Schulkin said in the undercover video recorded by a muckraker for conservative nonprofit Project Veritas
“But they didn’t vet people to see who they really are. Anybody can go in there and say, ‘I am Joe Smith, I want an ID card,’ ” he said in the bombshell tape. 
“It’s absurd. There is a lot of fraud. Not just voter fraud, all kinds of fraud . . . This is why I get more conservative as I get older.” . . .
Here is something from the Clinton presidential campaign about fraud by the Obama campaign in 2008.

Rampant corruption between the Obama administration and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign

This is dictatorial disregard for the rule of law for personal benefit.
State Dept Coordinated Email Releases With Clinton Campaign to help Clinton minimize damage
“All — DOS is soon releasing another round of documents and email traffic (not hers) in response to Judicial Watch’s FOIA request on DOS’s process for reviewing WJC’s speaking engagements,” Heather Samuelson wrote March 17, 2015. Samuelson has been a Clinton aide since the early 2000s and served as White House liaison during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state. Maura Pally and Craig Minassian of the Clinton Foundation; Philippe Reines, a longtime Clinton adviser; press secretary Nick Merrill; communications director Jennifer Palmieri; Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s chief of staff at State; and Tina Flournoy, President Clinton’s former chief of staff, are included on the email. 
“It’s 116 pages with approx. 50 sponsor/subsponsor requests,” the email continues. “No objections by DOS in this batch, but some lengthy internal discussions among DOS officials that I highlighted below.” . . .
Now Wikileaks shows that the Dept of Justice also coordinated with the Clinton campaign.  
Republicans accused the Hillary Clinton campaign and Obama Justice Department of “collusion” on Tuesday after an email surfaced from the latest WikiLeaks document dump indicating the Clinton camp got a heads-up from the DOJ about one of the former secretary of state’s court cases. 
The May 2015 email from Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon said, “DOJ folks inform me there is a status hearing in this case this morning, so we could have a window into the judge's thinking about this proposed production schedule as quickly as today.” 
The Fallon email apparently pertained to one of the lawsuits seeking the production of Clinton’s emails while at the State Department. . . .
