Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

In a statement, Mrs Clinton said it was a “great privilege” to become the chancellor of QUB.

She takes up her role immediately and will serve for a period of five years.

The former First Lady succeeds Dr Tom Moran, who passed away last year, and becomes the first woman to take up the post.

Crooked Hillary!

Near Laois.

The former US Senator, Secretary of State, First Lady and Democratic presidential candidate is visiting Barretstown in Ballymore Eustace this afternoon, it has been confirmed. She will be at the camp for a private event.

There are local reports that she is staying at the Killashee House Hotel in Naas, County Kildare for one night as part of her Irish visit. It is understood that she is being accompanied by the usual secret service guards….

Lock her up.

Still with her.

The new book called ‘Shenanigans: the US-Ireland Relationship in Uncertain Times‘ is written by former Democratic foreign policy advisor Trina Vargo, who runs the scholarship programme, which is named after former US senator George Mitchell,

Ms Vargo writes that in November 2000, Mr Mitchell told her that he had received a call from Mr Clinton, saying he was unhappy that Chelsea’s boyfriend had not been shortlisted for the scholarship to Ireland.

Chelsea’s boyfriend did not get the scholarship. In 2012, the US State Department, then under Mrs Clinton, cut funding to the Mitchell scholarship, citing budgetary measures.

…A spokesperson for the Clintons has told RTÉ News that the claims are “baseless and patently false”.

All hell is breaking loose in Washington D.C. after a four-page memo detailing extensive FISA court abuse was made available to the entire House of Representatives last night.

The contents of the memo are so explosive, says Journalist Sara Carter, that it could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and the Department of Justice and the end of Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation [into alleged Russia-Trump collusion].

Source close to the matter tells Fox News that “the memo details the Intelligence Committee’s oversight work for the FBI and Justice, including the controversy over unmasking and FISA surveillance.”

An educated guess by anyone who’s been paying attention for the last year leads to the obvious conclusion that the report reveals extensive abuse of power and highly illegal collusion between the Obama administration, the FBI, the DOJ and the Clinton Campaign against Donald Trump and his team during and after the 2016 presidential election.

When BuzzFeed published that now-infamous dossier of unproven claims about Donald Trump and Russia, in January, former Hillary Clinton campaign aides expressed outrage that news outlets that had obtained the dossier before Election Day did not make its contents public in time to influence voters, and Clinton later aired the same grievance in her book about the presidential race.

It turns out that the reaction of the Democratic presidential nominee and her team was disingenuous.

Impossible balderdash.

She’s a woman.
