The situation in Libya continues to deteriorate. Islamic terrorists have reportedly seized control of the airport in Tripoli after days of heavy fighting, while Egypt and the United Arab Emirates have launched a series of secret air strikes on militant positions, according to U.S. officials. U.S. ambassador to Libya Safira Deborah has fled the country.

On Monday, Deborah wrote on Twitter that she was “still” in the island nation of Malta, a popular tourist destination known for its sunny beaches. She included a photo as proof:

Behold: The Clinton Empire

This is what a global political empire looks like.

The Washington Examiner reports that Bill Clinton earned $48 million—from speeches and consulting deals—during his wife’s tenure as Secretary of State. A number of those speeches were funded by powerful business and political entities with a clear interest in influencing U.S. policy, yet the State Department did not object to any of them, despite policies intended to prevent “potential or actual conflicts of interest.”

For example, the Examiner investigation found that Clinton made more than $2 million for a total of eight speeches in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates. Much of the funding for the speeches came from wealthy investors with close ties to the governments in those countries.
