We're still perfectly sure that the Russians didn't penetrate the Secretary of State's secret basement server: Russian government hackers penetrated DNC, stole opposition research on Trump
Russian government hackers penetrated the computer network of the Democratic National Committee and gained access to the entire database of opposition research on GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, according to committee officials and security experts who responded to the breach.The Judicial Watch deposition of the architect of Hillary's secret basement server, Bryan Pagliano, will go forward and be videotaped, although the video is not supposed to be released to public.
The intruders so thoroughly compromised the DNC’s system that they also were able to read all email and chat traffic, said DNC officials and the security experts.
The intrusion into the DNC was one of several targeting American political organizations. The networks of presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were also targeted by Russian spies, as were the computers of some Republican political action committees, U.S. officials said. But details on those cases were not available.
In considering Pagliano's immunity deal, Judge Sullivan expressely called the FBI "security inquiry" a criminal investigation:A federal judge on Tuesday ordered the deposition of a former State Department staffer who helped set up Hillary Clinton’s private email server to go forward and to be videotaped.As we previously learned, Pagliano only received limited immunity from the FBI, meaning that he couldn’t be prosecuted using any of the information he provided to them during their interviews. He’s not free an clear from any prosecution, however, so he can still take the Fifth here. And assuming he does, the judge seems to have left the door open to dragging Hillary Clinton in to fill in the blanks. Since she’s maintained from the beginning that she “did nothing wrong” at any time, it would be rather awkward for her to plead the Fifth. Who knows what interesting doors might be opened at that time?
U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan denied a request by attorneys for technology specialist Bryan Pagliano to bar the recording of the deposition before lawyers with the conservative legal advocacy group Judicial Watch…
In his brief order, Sullivan said Pagliano’s videotaped deposition would be sealed consistent with other interviews. He asked the parties to pick a mutually agreed upon date before the end of June for the deposition, which originally had been planned for June 6.
"The privacy interests at stake are high because the government's criminal investigation through which Mr. Pagliano received limited immunity is ongoing and confidential," U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan wrote in an order issued Tuesday.Molly Hemingway thinks Hillary Clinton’s Success Is Due To Her Husband.

Poll: Most Voters Don’t View Clinton’s Nomination as Historic. Speaking of her corruption Saudi Arabia Has Funded 20% Of Hillary's Presidential Campaign, Saudi Crown Prince Claims
As MEE notes, the Petra News Agency published on Sunday what it described as exclusive comments from Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman which included a claim that Riyadh has provided 20 percent of the total funding to the prospective Democratic candidate's campaign.But I'm sure she'll really crack down on them. But, Bill Clinton Says Foundation Will Change If Wife Elected President. Probably even less transparency, but more graft.
The report was later deleted and the news agency has not responded to requests for comment from Middle East Eye. However, the deletion took place too late, as the Washington-based Institute for Gulf Affairs managed to capture the report and has re-published the original Arabic Petra report, which quoted Prince Mohammed as having said Saudi Arabia had provided with “full enthusiasm” an undisclosed amount of money to Clinton.

Nate Cohn at the NYT says the post-Orlando gun issue is "probably" going to help Trump. Hillary has all the hard left anti-gun states locked, but there are some purple western states that this might help turn. Hey, remember when Hillary at least pretended to some rationale beliefs?
