Hillary Clinton may have broken US secrecy rules with emails from Tony Blair and Downing Street

Hillary Clinton may have broken US secrecy rules with emails from Tony Blair and Downing Street

Hillary Clinton may have broken US secrecy rules by handling classified information from Tony Blair and the British government on her personal email account.

Newly disclosed emails from Mrs Clinton’s time as US secretary of state show she regularly received sensitive details from Mr Blair and UK officials on an email server based in her home in New York.

The former prime minister, writing on his own personal account, sent notes on his work as Middle East peace envoy while Mrs Clinton’s aides passed on briefings from Downing Street on Northern Ireland.

Under US secrecy rules classified information should not be shared by email because of the risk it could be intercepted by foreign hackers. The FBI is now investigating the security of the email server.

The British messages, which are now classified, are fueling Republican accusations that Mrs Clinton mishandled secret information and therefore “cannot be trusted with the White House”.

War Mongerer Tony Blair holding secret talks with Palestinian terrorists Hamas in bid to secure peace deal with Israel

War Mongerer Tony Blair holding secret talks with Palestinian terrorists Hamas in bid to secure peace deal with Israel

Tony Blair has held secret talks with the leader of Palestinian militant group Hamas in a bid to secure a peace deal with Israel.

The former prime minister met Khaled Meshaal in the Qatari capital, Doha, on two separate occasions over recent weeks, it emerged today.

Mr Blair, who resigned as the Middle East peace envoy in May, was allegedly acting as a go-between to win peace guarantees from Hamas in exchange for the Israeli government lifting its blockade on the Gaza Strip.

As the official representative in the Middle East for the ‘Quartet’ of world powers – the US, EU, Russia and the UN – Mr Blair was barred from meeting Hamas officials.

Hamas has doggedly refused to accept the group’s principles of a negotiated peace between Israel and Palestine – because it recognises the state of Israel and calls for an end to violence.

But since resigning three months ago, Mr Blair has held secret talks with the militant leader Mr Meshaal – with the second meeting just last week, according to the Times.

Agreed! Tony Blair ‘should be dragged in shackles to war crimes court’, father of dead solider says

Agreed! Tony Blair ‘should be dragged in shackles to war crimes court’, father of dead solider says

By

Tony Blair should be “dragged in shackles off to court as a war criminal”, the father of a soldier who died in Iraq has said as families pledged legal action unless the Chilcot Inquiry is published this year.

Reg Keys, whose son Lance Corporal Tom Keys was killed in Iraq in 2003 aged 20, said delay in publishing the inquiry’s findings was stopping grieving families from getting “closure”.

He criticised inquiry chairman sir John for getting the balance “completely wrong” between getting answers for victims’ families and reflecting the concerns of those politicians who made the decisions and are criticised.

Mr Keys is part of a group of 29 families who have issued a legal ultimatum to Sir John, believing the law requiring inquiries to be concluded in a reasonable time frame may have been breached.

Much of the anger is focused on the ongoing “Maxwellisation” process, which gives the opportunity to individuals facing possible criticism in the report to respond and is holding up publication.

Labour risks ‘annihilation’ if Jeremy Corbyn is leader – Tony Blair

Labour risks ‘annihilation’ if Jeremy Corbyn is leader – Tony Blair

The Labour Party risks “annihilation” if Jeremy Corbyn wins the party’s leadership contest, former prime minister Tony Blair has warned.

In an impassioned letter printed in the Guardian, Mr Blair said the party was walking “over the cliff’s edge”.

A Yougov poll for the Times this week showed Mr Corbyn was 32 points ahead of his nearest rival Andy Burnham.

In the 24 hours before registration to vote closed Wednesday, Labour received more than 160,000 applications.

Voting for the contest starts on Friday and the result will be declared on 12 September.

Writing in the Guardian, Mr Blair said: “It doesn’t matter whether you’re on the left, right or centre of the party, whether you used to support me or hate me,” he wrote.

“But please understand the danger we are in.

“The party is walking eyes shut, arms outstretched over the cliff’s edge to the jagged rocks below.

“This is not a moment to refrain from disturbing the serenity of the walk on the basis it causes ‘disunity’.

“It is a moment for a rugby tackle if that were possible.”

Agreed ! Tony Blair should face trial for war crimes over Iraq, says Jeremy Corbyn

Agreed ! Tony Blair should face trial for war crimes over Iraq, says Jeremy Corbyn

Never did I think I would agree totally with a British politician, but on this 1 I totally do…..

Tony Blair should be charged with war crimes for ordering the 2003 invasion of Iraq, Labour leadership frontrunner Jeremy Corbyn has claimed.

In an extraordinary attack on Labour’s most successful ever leader, Mr Corbyn said that ‘those that made the decisions’ in the run-up to the conflict should be put on trial.

He said Mr Blair should be made to ‘explain’ launching an ‘illegal’ war which he said helped cause recent migrant deaths in the Mediterranean.

Mr Corbyn was one of the most rebellious Labour MPs during the decade when Mr Blair was prime minister, voting against the Iraq War, ID cards and foundation hospitals.

But his demand that a former party leader stand trial for war crimes marks a dramatic escalation in the hostilities in the Labour party, weeks before it must choose a successor to Ed Miliband.

It comes as a fresh row has erupted over the delayed publication of the inquiry into the conflict, with David Cameron demanding chairman Sir John Chilcot name a date for it to be finally released.

Former prime minister handed diplomatic cables and other documents ahead of meetings in Beijing

Former prime minister handed diplomatic cables and other documents ahead of meetings in Beijing

Tony Blair has been obtaining sensitive government documents to help him on private business trips to China, The Telegraph can disclose.

The former prime minister has been provided with briefings, including diplomatic cables, by Foreign Office officials for regular visits to Beijing and Shanghai.

The documents include sensitive information from the British Embassy in Beijing which had to be handed over in London to avoid possible interception by China’s security services.

Last month the Telegraph disclosed how Mr Blair has made China a key plank of his business empire, acting as a broker between the country and Abu Dhabi.

Last night Andrew Bridgen, a Conservative MP who has called for Mr Blair to be more transparent about his business activities, said: “It is surprising that given Mr Blair’s commercial interests he is receiving these confidential Foreign Office briefings before his business trips,” he said.

Blair government was briefed about police paedophile probe involving Labour minister BEFORE it was halted

Blair government was briefed about police paedophile probe involving Labour minister BEFORE it was halted

Scotland Yard’s anti-corruption command are investigating claims that evidence the minister was part of a paedophile ring in Lambeth, South London, in the 1980s was covered up.

Retired detective Clive Driscoll says he was stopped from investigating the Labour star in 1998 after he named the politician as a suspect.

The Daily Mirror has now obtained papers which prove for the first time that Mr Driscoll’s children’s home probe was being monitored by senior civil servants and ministers before it was halted.

They include briefings written for the Blair administration just hours after the detective allegedly first named the minister as a suspect.

The officer was removed from the investigation three months later.

EVIL SPEAKS !! Tony Blair: Iraq war didn’t cause 7/7, Islamic terrorism must be fought militarily

EVIL SPEAKS !! Tony Blair: Iraq war didn’t cause 7/7, Islamic terrorism must be fought militarily

Liar & War Criminal Tony Blair:

Self-belief undiminished a decade on from the 7/7 London bombings, the former prime minister who led Britain to war in Iraq and Afghanistan says the UK must fight extremism militarily.

As the UK remembers the 52 dead and more than 700 wounded in the terror attacks a decade ago, Tony Blair aired his vision of how terrorism must be confronted, telling the BBC on Tuesday, “It’s a global threat, it is, I’m afraid. A growing threat.

But we have got ourselves to a position where it’s very clear that unless we take the right policies and strategy to deal with it, we won’t be able to succeed.

Those require a battle of ideas and a fight against the ideology. Not just the violence, but the ideology and the extremism. But also you have got to have the means of combating these people and combating them on the ground.

​‘”WAR CRIMINALS STICK TOGETHER”War criminal”. Rwandan spy chief freed on £1mn bail, thanks to Cherie Blair

Cherie Blair, wife of former Prime Minister Tony Blair, has helped free a Rwandan spy chief arrested in London over alleged war crimes in the aftermath of the 1994 genocide.

She was seen giving instructions to barrister Mark Summers QC during an extradition hearing at Westminster Magistrate’s Court on Thursday.

General Karenzi Karake, who was visiting the UK to meet the head of MI6, stands accused of ordering massacres in the aftermath of the 1994 Rwandan genocide and the murder of three Spanish and two British aid workers.

This must be some sick joke ” Alan Milburn: Labour must realise Tony Blair was great like Margaret Thatcher”

This must be some sick joke ” Alan Milburn: Labour must realise Tony Blair was great like Margaret Thatcher”

Well I have heard it all now !

Labour must accept that Tony Blair was “great” like Margaret Thatcher and learn lessons from his success or it will never be in power again, Alan Milburn has said he endorsed Liz Kendall for the leadership.

The former health secretary said the party “could not have got it more wrong” at the last election as Ed Miliband “unilaterally sought to bring the shutters down on New Labour”.

In a major intervention over the future of the party, Mr Milburn said Labour must snap out of its “self-delusion” and realise that voters no longer know what the party stands for.

And while saying there can be “no return” to New Labour, the former frontbencher outlined five lessons from Mr Blair’s success that must be adopted by whoever wins the party leadership.

The speech is the latest from a Labour grandee chastising the party for its electoral defeat last month – when it recorded its worst result since 1987 – and urging reform.

However it is Mr Milburn’s calls for a rehabilitation of Mr Blair, whose legacy over Iraq has divided newer MPs and the public, and his political strategies that will raise eyebrows.
