<b><i>Strawberry moon...<br></b></i>
The “strawberry moon” sets behind the cliffs west of Moab early in the morning of Tuesday, June 21. The moon was actually at its fullest point Monday morning, with the summer solstice occuring Monday afternoon about 4:30 p.m. It marked the first time that the full moon had fallen on the same day as the June solstice since 1967, according to EarthSky.org. Other sites claim that the last time a full moon actually occurred on the same day as the summer solstice was in 1948. The  phenomena is not expected to occur again until 2062. Photo by Jeff Richards

The role of John Bentel, whose identity as a key figure in the email probes was first reported by Yahoo News on Wednesday, is expected to be one focus of questioning today when Clinton’s former chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, is deposed in a lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch over the State Department’s handling of Freedom of Information Act requests relating to Clinton’s emails, according to a source close to the case.
