Top Clinton State Department aide helped Clinton Foundation

The more one looks the dirtier it gets.


A top aide to Hillary Clinton at the State Department traveled to New York to interview job candidates for a top job at the Clinton Foundation, a CNN investigation has found.

The fact that the aide, Cheryl Mills, was taking part in such a high level task for the Clinton foundation while also working as chief of staff for the secretary of state raises new questions about the blurred lines that have dogged the Clintons in recent years.

Upon entering office as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation agreed to a set of rules to ensure any activities by the foundation would not "create conflicts or the appearance of conflicts for Senator Clinton as Secretary of State."

On June 19, 2012, Mills, then the chief of staff for Clinton at the State Department, boarded a New York City-bound Amtrak train in Washington's Union station.

The next morning, at the offices of a New York based executive search firm, Mills would interview two high-level business executives. Her mission was to help the Clinton Foundation find a new leader, a source told CNN.

According to Mills' attorney, her work for the Clinton Foundation while she was employed at the State Department was strictly voluntary. She received no pay and no government funds were used to finance the short trip.

Clinton's presidential campaign re-iterated that Mills was working as a volunteer* on the trip.


There is no doubt of the connections between Clinton Foundation staffers and State Department staffers.

E-mails obtained through the Freedom of Information Act and released by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch this week raise new questions about the intermingling of Clinton Foundation business, its donors and employees under Hillary Clinton's control as a public servant. They suggest Foundation officials had no problem trying to curry favor for jobs by emailing top Clinton aides like Mills and Huma Abedin, who is now a senior adviser to Clinton's presidential campaign.

Mills' trip from Washington, D.C., to New York by a top Clinton aide in 2012 seems to raise the same potential issues.

The top-level executives Mills would interview for the big job at the Clinton Foundation worked at Pfizer and WalMart -- companies that have been huge donors to Foundation, and have worked with the Clinton Global Initiative.

NGO's have a long history of working with the state department. Nothing new here.

Nothing new, which is why CNN has been doing an investigation.
