Good Morning! In the news today: Clinton was asked by Congress more than two years ago about her use of private emails but didn’t respond; Feds freeing hundreds of illegals who have committee grievous crimes; Corker bill passes after White House backs; Russia, China, and North Korea all helping Iran with its nuclear program; and more alleged campus anti-Semiticism, this time by an alliance of minorities at Stanford.
Have a nice day.
Clinton first asked about private email in December 2012 . . . Hillary Rodham Clinton was directly asked by congressional investigators in a December 2012 letter whether she had used a private email account while serving as secretary of state, according to letters obtained by The New York Times. But Mrs. Clinton did not reply to the letter. And when the State Department answered in March 2013, nearly two months after she left office, it ignored the question and provided no response. New York Times
Seems like she deleted them right around the time she was asked about them.

Feds freeing hundreds of illegals who are rapists, murderers . . . The administration is deporting fewer criminal aliens than it did last year, according to new statistics released Tuesday that undercut President Obama’s justification for his new amnesty, which he said was intended to free agents to focus on the most dangerous of criminals by focusing on “felons not families.” Washington Times
Panel unanimously approves Corker bill . . . The Senate Foreign Relations Committee unanimously approved the legislation, called the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015, prompting a victory lap by the bill’s author, committee chairman Bob Corker, R-Tenn. Yahoo News
White House backs measure . . . The legislation would allow a vote on a deal-scuttling resolution of disapproval of the Iran deal after it is negotiated at the end of June, but Obama could veto the resolution, and then two thirds of the Senate would be needed for an override. This is far easier for the White House than were Congress to be permitted a vote on whether to approve the Iran agreement. Under the Corker bill, effectively, the White House only needs the support of a third of the Senate. So Congress has a role, but a severely circumscribed one. White House Dossier
Iran’s Rouhani says there will be no deal unless all sanctions are lifted by all countries simultaneously.

White House gift to labor about to be received . . . Controversial new union election regulations went into effect on Tuesday, curtailing the ability of employers to educate workers about the effects of unionization.

Washington Free Beacon
ISIS camp just miles from Texas . . . ISIS is operating a camp in Mexico just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector. The location is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez. Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States. Judicial Watch
Russian sale to Iran will degrade U.S. ability to strike Iran . . . A bipartisan team of lawmakers is warning that Russia’s decision to arm Iran with advanced missile systems will erode America’s ability to launch a military strike against the Islamic Republic’s contested nuclear sites, according to a letter sent Monday to the Obama administration. Washington Free Beacon

AQAP leader nixed . . . A top al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula leader — who a few years ago was in a U.S. detention facility — was among five killed in an airstrike in Yemen, the terror group said, showing the organization is vulnerable even as Yemen appears close to civil war. CNN
Hillary discovered grooming goats at a petting zoo . . . Okay, not really. But it could happen. One of the few epithets that hasn’t been applied to Mrs. Clinton is “strange,” but with her artificial attempt to ensconce herself among real people, whom she hasn’t had contact with since the last time she was forced to in 2008, “strange” may soon be added to her personality portfolio. White House Dossier
Hillary knocks for-profit colleges while profiting from them . . . Clinton’s disparaging remarks about the often seedy for-profit college industry omitted the fact that she and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have deep ties to Laureate Education, an international conglomerate of aggressive, telemarketing-happy, for-profit colleges that is ensnared in controversy all over the globe. Daily Caller

Biden warns he still may get in: “I haven’t made up my mind on that. I have plenty of time to do that, in my view,” he says in Detroit.
It’s the national security, stupid . . . Republican strategists believe a growing body of evidence suggests that national security could play a pivotal role in the next election. An internal survey, conducted by the GOP firm OnMessage, found that security issues ranked first on a list of top priorities for voters, ahead of economic growth, fiscal responsibility, and moral issues, among others.

Huckabee warns of welfare for illegals . . . Former Arkansas Gov.

Forgotten: Palestinians massacred by ISIS . . . During a week-long anti-Israel demonstration organized by Students for Justice in Palestine, SJP erected a model separation barrier on campuses across North America. The symbolic wall is riddled with anti-Israel slogans, drawings, and falsehoods. Each section of the barrier is intended to portray the injustices that Palestinians face, each one placing blame on the Jewish State. Meanwhile, Palestinians in the Yarmouk refugee camp in southern Damascus are being beheaded and slaughtered by militants of the Islamic State. More than 1,000 have been killed. Washington Examiner
Muslims only show serious concern about the Palestinians when the Jews are involved.
British diplomat cites Hillary role in Iraq meltdown . . . Emma Sky, who served as an adviser to one of the top US commanders in Iraq, claims in a new book that Mrs Clinton operated a “dysfunctional” diplomatic mission to Baghdad that allowed a lapse back into sectarian warfare after elections in 2010.

Poll: Republicans back Israel, Dems don’t . . . Republicans by a ratio of more than 2-to-1 say the U.S. should support Israel even when its stances diverge with American interests, a new Bloomberg Politics poll finds. Democrats, by roughly the same ratio, say the opposite is true. Bloomberg
The wage gap is due to choice . . . Women earn just 77 or 78 cents to the dollar that men earn. I don’t know how many times this myth has to be busted before people stop repeating it, but here we go again. The wage gap isn’t some undocumented rule governing America’s businesses. The wage gap actually comes from the different career choices men and women make on aggregate — whether it be the hours they work or the occupation they choose. Ashe Schow
Lazy, liberal mainstream reporters consistently mention this statistic as if it were irrefutable fact.
Anti-Semitism by minority group at Stanford alleged . . . The debate over what constitutes anti-Semitism has spilled into Stanford University’s student government election, with a Jewish student claiming that she was asked how her Judaism affects her view of divestment from Israel.

U.S. to identify hundreds killed in Pearl Harbor . . .
