Hillary to hand over email server for probe


Hillary Clinton on has relented to months of demands that she relinquish the personal email server she used while secretary of state, directing the device be given to the justice department.

The decision announced is set to advance the investigation into the Democratic presidential front-runner’s use of a private email account as the nation’s top diplomat, and whether classified information was improperly sent via and stored on the home-brew email server she ran from her New York City house. Clinton’s campaign spokesman Nick Merrill said she has “pledged to cooperate with the security inquiry“.

Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal, the first Indian-American to be running for the US presidency, is the youngest among the 17 Republican presidential aspirants for the 2016 elections.

Jindal, who at the age of 36, became the youngest sitting governor in the United States when he was sworn in as governor of Louisiana, however, would not be the youngest president if elected in the November 2016 presidential elections.

The youngest person to assume office was Theodore Roosevelt (age 42), who became president following William McKinley’s assassination. And youngest president elected to office was John F Kennedy (age 43 years, 236 days).

Jindal, 44, who is currently not among the top 10 Republican presidential candidates, needs considerable jump in his popularity ratings to be elected.

In terms of age, Jindal, who was born in Baton Rouge on June 10, 1971, Louisiana is closely followed by Senator Marco Rubio from Florida who was born on May 28, 1971. Ted Cruz from Texas follows them closely. He was born on December 22, 1970.

At 70, the former New York governor George Pataki, is the oldest Republican presidential candidate. He is followed by Donald Trump, 69.

Meanwhile, Jindal continued with his presidential campaign in Iowa, where he has been drawing an impressive crowd and has been ranked fourth in popularity rankings, according to some recent polls.

“The reality is we are now fourth in the polls in Iowa and moving up the most quickest compared to any other candidates,” Jindal said at a campaign event.

“A lot of people have good lines, they have great speeches, and I think voters are looking for a do-er not a talker,” he added.
