A top defender of Hillary Clinton, former White House special counsel Lanny Davis, said on MSNBC that "everything" on Clinton's private email servers should be available to Republicans in Congress. Davis made the comments in response to a question about how Clinton can put the questions about her email practices behind her.
"She needs to get all these facts out, that's sort of my mantra as a crisis manager," said Davis. "We're a little bit behind the curve in her doing so, and I think she's now turning the corner on her Twitter. She wants to release all of these e-mails, had set up a process of a neutral examining all of them, that would be the State Department, and I think Alex [the other guest on the program] will report that the process of examining 55,000 pages, as well as everything on the server, is available to the State Department, available to Congressman Gowdy, available to Senator McCain. The word subpoena, the word request, everything is going to be available, and you're absolutely right, she needs to make that clear, and I think she has begun to do so."
The White House has admitted that it was wrong to promise that people would be able to their health care plans under Obamacare. "With respect to the pledge I made that if you like your plan you can keep it, I think -- you know, and I’ve said in interviews -- that there is no doubt that the way I put that forward unequivocally ended up not being accurate. It was not because of my intention not to deliver on that commitment and that promise. We put a grandfather clause into the law but it was insufficient," President Obama said at a recent press conference
The big topic of discussion on the Sunday shows was, of course, Obamacare. And the big challenge for supporters of the president, and his signature program, was to parse the language of “If you like your plan …” so as to make it mean something other than what millions reasonably assumed it meant.
President Obama's former press secretary, Robert Gibbs, says it was "certainly" wrong for the president to continuously promise that people would be able to keep their health care plans under Obamacare:
As Obamacare was being pushed through Congress in 2010, the Obama administration and its allies were unequivocal in two claims: If you like your doctor and you like your current health care plan, you can keep them both.
Four years ago today, on January 22, 2009, President Barack Obama signed "EXECUTIVE ORDER -- REVIEW AND DISPOSITION OF INDIVIDUALS DETAINED AT THE GUANTÁNAMO BAY NAVAL BASE AND CLOSURE OF DETENTION FACILITIES." In particular, the executive order stated:
President Obama got caught in private conversation with a hot mic today in Seoul, South Korea, telling outgoing Russian president Dmitry Medvedev that Vladimir Putin should give him more "space" and that "[a]fter my election I have more flexibility."
