'Pay-to-play' at Clinton State Department exposed in new emails, watchdog says


'Pay-to-play' at Clinton State Department exposed in new emails, watchdog says



Quote:
Newly disclosed emails expose fresh examples of "pay to play" at the Clinton State Department, a conservative watchdog group said Thursday.

The emails, from Clinton aide Huma Abedin's account, were among 1,600 documents turned over by the State Department in connection with Judicial Watch's Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

Judicial Watch said the documents reveal Clinton Foundation friends requesting and receiving favors from the State Department.

“The emails show ‘what happened’ was that Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin obviously violated laws about the handling of classified information and turned the State Department into a pay for play tool for the corrupt Clinton Foundation,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said, in a swipe at Clinton's newly released campaign memoir "What Happened." “The clear and mounting evidence of pay for play and mishandling of classified information warrant a serious criminal investigation by an independent Trump Justice Department.”

In May 2010, Clinton Foundation donor and developer Eddie Trump wrote to Doug Band, a Clinton Foundation official and former top aide to President Bill Clinton, forwarding a request for help getting the Russian American Foundation involved in a State Department program. Band forwarded the request to Abedin, asking if they can “get this done/mtg set.” Judicial Watch previously reported that the State Department paid more than $260,000 to the Russian American Foundation for “public diplomacy.”

In July 2009, Zachary Schwartz, an associate for donor Steve Bing, contacted Band requesting help on visas for Cuba for a film production crew from Bing's Shangri La Entertainment. Band forwarded the request to Abedin asking her to call Schwartz "asap." Abedin said she would. Bing reportedly donated between $10 million and $25 million to the Clinton Foundation.

Another instance was in September 2009, when chairman of futures brokerage firm CME Group and Clinton Foundation donor Terrence Duffy asked Clinton to help arrange “government appointments” in Singapore and Hong Kong. Clinton forwarded the request to Abedin, who said she would “follow up” with his secretary.

“Would like to get some more information and details so we can try to help,” Abedin wrote to Duffy’s secretary.

Duffy’s secretary replied, “We would also like some help in arranging meetings with some key govt officials in both locations, such as the Prime Minister of Singapore, and would appreciate any help you may be able to provide.”

Abedin responded on Sept. 29, 2009 that they were “happy to assist with any and all meetings” and that she had “discussed you and your trip with our assistant secretary of state for east Asia and pacific affairs.”

Duffy reportedly gave $4,600 to Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, and his company reportedly paid Clinton $225,000 for a speaking fee.

Other documents show Clinton received “proposed questions” in advance of a “Global Press Conference” in 2009 from seven foreign reporters, among other communications among Clinton, Abedin and other State Department aides.

...

The new documents contain classified information, and also show personal opinions of other Obama administration officials.

On a trip to Mexico in January 2011, Abedin emailed Clinton that Vice President Joe “Biden is a disaster here.”

AND.....we're back to Hillary. It's just not enough for the RW is it?? It's not enough to have the presidency, cabinet, senate, house, most of the governors and the Supremes, is it???

They've got to have Hillary's head on a platter or they won't be happy. I have never seen such a hateful group of "WINNERS" in my life. I don't suppose it would do any good to remind "THEM" that Hilly is over--kaput--zip--out--gone.

Going back in my memory banks there was nothing like this hatefest pointed at Romney after 2012 or McCain in 2008. They keep telling us the election is over but they don't seem to realize that themselves.

I guess when you elect such a piece of shit, you have to keep on deflecting and dodging forever.

Back to...we never left that corrupt, incompetent criminal. If the Permanent Political Class wasn't so afraid of investigation into themselves this pig would by in Court on criminal charges. And then, hopefully, prison.

What's to dodge? Other than the near hysterical whining coming from the socialist Left. Look out now, the Constitution may be upheld, rule of law may be upheld.
Speaking of crap, I hear Trudeau is in deep do-do with the Canadian people. I recently watched a video of Trudeau getting bitch-slapped in your Parliament. It was really funny to watch him stammer and tap-dance.
Thanks from Sensible

I don't know why you need Hillary. You've got your very own corrupt, incompetent criminal in the WH.
