A former ambassador in the Clinton administration, Marc Ginsberg, knocked Secretary of State John Kerry for sounding "like a used care salesman" earlier today on national television. Watch here:
"Well, it's surprising to me that at this point in time, what is leaking out here is this so called side and secret agreements that seem to be poisoning the atmosphere. And Secretary Kerry is beginning to sound like a used car salesman who's not revealing what's underneath the chastity of the car, whether it's rusty or not," said the former Clinton ambassador.
Ginsberg went on to say that "secret annexes" could "torpedo this deal."
Ginsberg worked as foreign policy advisor in the Jimmy Carter administration and as ambassador to Morocco for the Clinton administration.
In the summer of 1994 the Clinton administration faced the gravest crisis on the Korean peninsula since the signing of the armistice agreement in 1953. The genesis of the crisis had come in 1992 when Pyongyang concluded an agreement accepting the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) nuclear safeguards in accordance with the provisions of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT). Subsequent IAEA inspections discovered inconsistencies between Pyongyang’s initial declaration regarding its nuclear program and IAEA findings. Pyongyang then threatened to withdraw from the NPT triggering an international crisis.
A new TV ad argues the Obama administration's nuclear deal with Iran is repeating history, drawing parallels with the 1994 nuclear deal President Bill Clinton brokered with North Korea. The ad, produced by the Foundation for American Security and Freedom, interchanges lines from both president's speeches announcing the deals, showing how similar promises were made about how the deals would stop the spread of nuclear weapons. After noting that North Korea admitted to having nuclear weapons in 2005, the 60-second video asks, "Is Iran about to repeat history?"
As he has for much of his post-presidency, Bill Clinton was on the road again in June, traveling to Europe at the end of the month for various conferences and other public appearances. After a few days in London, the president popped over to Paris for a day or two to shop at Hermès, a well-known luxury boutique. Such trips, however, do not come cheap. Hotel contracts for the president's Secret Service team for the Paris leg of the trip alone came to over $48,000.
Twenty years have now passed since the brutal subjugation of the besieged town of Srebrenica in eastern Bosnia-Herzegovina, after which 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were slaughtered by Serbs commanded by ex-Yugoslav army general Ratko Mladic.
Senator Chuck Grassley has written a series of letters to Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew demanding answers about a shady uranium deal with a company tied to the Clintons.
Bill and Hillary Clinton vacationed in the Dominican Republic around New Years, visiting at least two exclusive resorts, Punta Cana and the Casa de Campo. The once-and-possibly-future first couple spent the week, of course, under the watchful eye of the U.S. Secret Service, but the security required for the trip didn't come cheap.
Former Clinton advisor Paul Begala told CNN's Chris Cuomo Tuesday morning that Hillary Clinton "absolutely" has to answer for standing by her husband when he served as governor of Arkansas and defended that state's flag's relationship to the Confederate battle flag.
"Does she have to answer for her time as first lady in Arkansas with Bill standing by the Arkansas flag proudly when it, too, is said to borrow from the Confederate symbology?" Cuomo said.
"Well, sure, absolutely," said Begala. "Times change. Circumstances change." Watch the video below:
When news broke this spring about Bill and Hillary Clinton’s appetite for other people’s money and their indifference to other people’s rules, I was rereading my way through a shelf of old Hillary biographies. My memory thus was doubly stimulated. In the fresh revelations, as in the books, the traits of the Clintons were spread out for a new generation to marvel at: the furtiveness, the shifting accounts of hazy events, the parsing of language, the bald and unnecessary denial of often trivial facts (did she have two phones or one?).
Bill Clinton attended the funeral of the son of Vice President Joe Biden earlier today in Wilmington, Delaware and then headed up north to see American Pharoah win the Triple Crown at the Belmont Stakes in New York.
Pictures of the former president were shared by numerous Twitter users:
