Yeah, but...............

Just my opinion, but isn't 'I am mortified....' similar to 'I withdraw the question...' in a court room procedings ? Just a slippery side step to stay on the good side himself. The words out, so now blame someone who is no longer in the picture, or on sloppy data security, and get on with politics. Professional courtesy among thieves.

I'm sure everyone is simply mortified by all this!

and Schummer wants a fully independent special prosecutor! I'm sure they hope to find that President Bush authorized the caper.

The best one:

'Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill., who said his office was targeted for the snooping, suggested that Illinois U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald be appointed as a special prosecutor by the Justice Department to review the information and make recommendations on how to proceed.'

that'll take the heat off Mayor Daley who's family is being investigated for corruption! Simply mortified!

A link with more 'meat' to it ...

shows that the claimed "hacking" was false and that the fault of any security lapse lies with the Democrat's "inexperienced computer coordinator".

Since certain people applaud "whistle blowers" who flat out STEAL private documents and emails and release classified documents that they are sworn to never disclose it is difficult seeing how they justify being upset over reading files easily accessible WITHOUT PASSWORDS that clearly show how the sanctimonious Democrit activies in the Judiciary Committee were so carefully orchestrated by SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS.

are on the side of truth, justice, and the American Way (like detouring the federal prosecutor in Chicago who is investigating Mayor Daley).

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
