Assange: After 'Butcher' of Libyan Women, Clinton 'Covers Up Sexual Impropriety'

Hillary Clinton Reportedly Shielded Faith Advisor Accused of Sexual Harassment

Hillary Clinton Reportedly Shielded Faith Advisor Accused of Sexual Harassment

Just minutes before President Donald Trump's first State of the Union address, Clinton posted the explanation on her official Facebook page, in which she said she understood why she was being asked the question that why she overruled her advisers and kept Burns Strider on the job despite "his inappropriate workplace behavior".

The New York Times reported last week that Ms Clinton chose not to fire Burns Strider, the faith adviser from her 2008 campaign, after he was accused of inappropriately touching and emailing a campaign subordinate.

This is a developing story. She made the choice to ignore the advice of her campaign manager, Patti Solis Doyle, who took that recommendation to Clinton.

Trevor Noah is one of several celebrities who couldn't resist taking a shot at Trump during the Grammys on Sunday night, but his take on Hillary Clinton's cameo was surprising.

It's true that during her decades in public life, Clinton has been unfairly saddled with the weight of a lot of bad decision-making by men.

"I've been given second chances and I have given them to others", she said. I looked at the evidence.

Apple's iPhone SE sequel reportedly won't be a big revamp
As reported by Reuters this morning, Apple has notified suppliers that it will halve its production target for the iPhone X in Q1. It features an OLED screen that spans from one edge of the device to the other and displays images in more vibrant colours.

She said that after interviewing the parties involved and examining the evidence, she "came to the conclusion that there was sexual harassment involved; that the young woman was very credible". What I can't accept is the idea that forgiving Strider means minimizing the consequences he faced for his behavior, especially when doing so put him in a position to offend again. He developed a personal relationship with Clinton during the 2008 campaign by sending the then-senator Scripture readings every morning while she ran for president, and after the campaign he stayed close with the Clintons. "I think she would've been extra hesitant to let him go".

Clinton said on Facebook that the woman's complaint was taken seriously and that she ultimately decided on a more lenient punishment, which included demoting Strider, docking his pay and separating him from the woman, as well as putting in place "technical barriers to his emailing her".

Solis Doyle said she was "disappointed" by Clinton's tweet and that wished "she had said it was the wrong call".

A Buzzfeed report describes an atmosphere of control and obsession and that the woman told campaign officials that Strider "told her he wants to get her drunk" and "told her he buys porn while on the road for travel" among other things. He was sacked a few months later, Chozick and Haberman write - among the reasons were reports that he had harassed a female aide.

"I called her today to tell her how proud I am of her and to make sure she knows what all women should: we deserve to be heard". Clinton responded to the Friday Times report via Twitter, writing that she was "dismayed" by the allegations at the time, but felt they were adequately addressed.
