So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Friday August 7, 2015.

The FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal isn’t just political theater; according to authorities it’s a full-blown “criminal probe.”

“It’s definitely a criminal probe,” said the source. “I’m not sure why they’re not calling it a criminal probe.

“The DOJ [Department of Justice] and FBI can conduct civil investigations in very limited circumstances,” but that’s not what this is, the source stressed. “In this case, a security violation would lead to criminal charges. Maybe DOJ is trying to protect her campaign.”

Hillary Clinton is against “premature deaths” unless Planned Parenthood is causing them.

Pastor R.C. Sproul Jr. offers up “three bad pro-life arguments” for your edification.

New emails prove that Lois Lerner and the IRS were also targeting Bristol Palin!

Is Marco Rubio getting lost in the presidential crowd?

Jeb Bush isn’t ready for the spotlight. Also, Jeb Bush may have called Donald Trump a “buffoon,” a “clown” and an “a**hole.”

Oh by the way, Russia has hacked the Pentagon.

Residents of the Big Apple believe that the quality of life in their fair city is rotten to the core. A new poll shows that fewer denizens of NYC think the quality of life in the city is good than at any point since 1997 (including in the wake of 9/11). Mayor Bill de Blasio gets horrible reviews as well…

Iran has already proven untrustworthy.

Iranian Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani recently visited Moscow to meet with senior Russian leaders, according to two Western intelligence sources, despite a travel ban and U.N. Security Council resolutions barring him from leaving Iran.
