<p>On Wednesday night, the &ldquo;big three&rdquo; of ABC, CBS, and NBC all neglected to cover the latest problem facing likely Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as a report from the Department of Homeland Security&rsquo;s Inspector General (IG) found that a senior DHS official assisted Clinton&rsquo;s brother Tony Rodham and Democratic Governor Terry McAuliffe (Va.) in obtaining visas for their foreign business associates.</p>

<p>According to the report, Deputy Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas gave<strong> &ldquo;an appearance of favoritism and special access&rdquo;</strong> while he led U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and <strong>&ldquo;communicated with&rdquo;</strong> those seeking the approval of visas <strong>&ldquo;outside of the normal adjudicatory process and intervened with the career USCIS staff in ways that benefitted the stakeholders.&rdquo;</strong></p>
