State finds 30 deleted Clinton emails on Benghazi | Washington Examiner

State Department attorneys said Tuesday the agency had discovered 30 Benghazi-related emails among the records recovered from Hillary Clinton's private server.

A judge asked the agency to hasten its review of the documents in preparation for release to Judicial Watch, the conservative-leaning group that filed the Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

The emails were included among the roughly 15,000 emails FBI agents said they pulled from Clinton's server in the course of a year-long probe.

Others were deleted beyond recovery after the Democratic nominee's team used a digital tool called BleachBit to scrub the hardware that was eventually confiscated by law enforcement agents.

Chicago Cubs rally behind Jake Arrieta to top Pirates in extras - Chicago Cubs Blog- ESPN

CHICAGO -- The kids set it up and -- finally -- the veterans knocked it down for the Chicago Cubs.

The Cubs' wacky 8-7 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates in 13 innings on Monday was a sprawling affair. The game dragged on just over five hours, a fact ill-timed in a number of ways. But when Miguel Montero looped a single against a drawn infield to score Kris Bryant, it was all worth it.

"That was a goofy game, boy," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said as he sat down for his late-night, postgame news conference. He could have left it at that.

The win was an affirmative testament to the collective will of a tired Chicago team. One day after they finished a nine-game, 10-day West Coast trip punctuated by flight delays and a short night's rest, the Cubs came back twice to knock off a Pirates team involved in a tight battle with St. Louis for the NL's second wild-card spot.

"We got in late last night," Maddon said. "These guys were tired."

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan Wolverines football coach Jim Harbaugh didn't mince words when asked Monday about the recent protest made by his former quarterback, Colin Kaepernick.

"I acknowledge his right to do that. I don't respect the motivation or the action," said Harbaugh, who coached Kaepernick with the San Francisco 49ers.

Harbaugh looked to clarify his comments in a tweet later Monday.


Chicago Bears trying to get healthy - Sports - The Register-Mail - Galesburg, IL

LAKE FOREST — Chicago Bears inside linebacker Danny Trevathan is more interested in what happens next.

The way the preseason has gone, it's probably best not to look back.

"I'm more concerned about (how) we're adjusting and how we're going to bounce back from that," Trevathan said.

"You know it's preseason and I know all that but collectively I want to see us play a little better man, and put together a great start and a great finish at the same time."

From a long list of injuries to a rash of poor play, little has gone the Bears' way.


Hillary Clinton Piles Up Research in Bid to Needle Donald Trump at First Debate - The New York Times

Hillary Clinton’s advisers are talking to Donald J. Trump’s ghostwriter of “The Art of the Deal,” seeking insights about Mr. Trump’s deepest insecurities as they devise strategies to needle and undermine him in four weeks at the first presidential debate, the most anticipated in a generation.

Her team is also getting advice from psychology experts to help create a personality profile of Mr. Trump to gauge how he may respond to attacks and deal with a woman as his sole adversary on the debate stage.

They are undertaking a forensic-style analysis of Mr. Trump’s performances in the Republican primary debates, cataloging strengths and weaknesses as well as trigger points that caused him to lash out in less-than-presidential ways.

Women Push for Gender Equality on GoTopless Day |

HAMPTON, N.H. (AP) — Women around the country are taking off their tops on GoTopless Day, a day that promotes gender equality and women’s rights to bare their breasts in public.

GoTopless Day is celebrated annually on the Sunday closest to Women’s Equality Day, marking the day American women earned the right to vote.

A group of about 50 women and men were walking topless in the oceanside Los Angeles neighborhood of Venice, behind a giant, inflatable pink breast that had the phrase “equal topless rights” written on it. One marcher carried a sign that said: “My Body Is Not A Crime.”

A few dozen women, and some men, went topless as they walked down Broadway in New York City. Onlookers gawked and took photos as the parade participants went by.


Dodgers hold Cubs to four hits, take series

LOS ANGELES - Corey Seager has become an NL MVP Award candidate as a rookie with timely homers and a big batting average.

He made himself the difference in a game Sunday just by running hard to second base.

Brock Stewart and four relievers combined on a four-hitter and Andrew Toles scored on a fielder’s choice in the eighth inning thanks to Seager’s hustle, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers over Jon Lester and the Chicago Cubs 1-0.
