The FBI has obtained a warrant to begin reviewing a new batch of emails potentially tied to US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, law enforcement officials tell US media.

The emails, belonging to Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin, came to light during an investigation of disgraced former New York congressman Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of Abedin.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

I wonder if Lizzie Marvelly and Labour are going to be upset over Hadyn Marriner’s rape jokes?

Lizzie Marvelly is a national anthem singer, veteran whinger and ideal Labour candidate for Rotorua. Haydn Marriner is chair of the Labour Rotorua LEC.

Lizzie Marvelly is absolutely disgusted at Paul Henry’s appreciation of a woman’s breasts. Meanwhile, Haydn Marriner is making rape jokes online.
