New Abedin Emails Reveal Hillary Clinton State Department Gave Special Access to Top Clinton Foundation Donors
AMERICA, THIS IS CALLED INFLUENCE PEDDLING AND ITS CORRUPT AND A CRIME …
As reported at the WAPO, the new emails from the FBI not previously released by Hillary Clinton, even though she claimed to have done so, reveal how foundation donors got access to Hillary Clinton and her close aides at the Obama State Department. Oh, but nothing to see here, unless you actually care about crime, corruption, collusion, quid pro quo and influence peddling at the highest levels of American government. As the emails plainly show, in each case, according to emails released Monday from Hillary Clinton’s time as secretary of state, the requests were directed to Clinton’s deputy chief of staff and confidante, Huma Abedin, who engaged with other top aides and sometimes Clinton herself about how to respond. Just admit it America, Hillary Clinton used her perch in the Obama administration to trade favors for donations to the Clinton Foundation.
Judicial Watch today released 725 pages of new State Department documents, including previously unreleased email exchanges in which former Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin provided influential Clinton Foundation donors special, expedited access to the secretary of state. In many instances, the preferential treatment provided to donors was at the specific request of Clinton Foundation executive Douglas Band.
The new documents included 20 Hillary Clinton email exchanges not previously turned over to the State Department, bringing the known total to date to 191 of new Clinton emails (not part of the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton turned over to the State Department). These records further appear to contradict statements by Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails were turned over to the State Department.
The Abedin emails reveal that the longtime Clinton aide apparently served as a conduit between Clinton Foundation donors and Hillary Clinton while Clinton served as secretary of state. In more than a dozen email exchanges, Abedin provided expedited, direct access to Clinton for donors who had contributed from $25,000 to $10 million to the Clinton Foundation. In many instances, Clinton Foundation top executive Doug Band, who worked with the Foundation throughout Hillary Clinton’s tenure at State, coordinated closely with Abedin. In Abedin’s June deposition to Judicial Watch, she conceded that part of her job at the State Department was taking care of “Clinton family matters.”
Included among the Abedin-Band emails is an exchange revealing that when Crown Prince Salman of Bahrain requested a meeting with Secretary of State Clinton, he was forced to go through the Clinton Foundation for an appointment. Abedin advised Band that when she went through “normal channels” at State, Clinton declined to meet. After Band intervened, however, the meeting was set up within forty-eight hours. According to the Clinton Foundation website, in 2005, Salman committed to establishing the Crown Prince’s International Scholarship Program (CPISP) for the Clinton Global Initiative. And by 2010, it had contributed $32 million to CGI. The Kingdom of Bahrain reportedly gave between $50,000 and $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation. And Bahrain Petroleum also gave an additional $25,000 to $50,000.
LYING HILLARY CLINTON AND HER PEOPLE BACK AT IT AGAIN BLAMING OTHERS, COLIN POWELL TRIES TO REMOVES THE TIRE TRACKS FROM HIS BACK …
Former secretary of State Colin Powell responded in a People Magazine interview to Hillary Clinton’s assertions that it was Powell who told her to use private emails as he did. It is just amazing that Hillary Clinton cannot accept the responsibility for what she did and in turn tries to blame everyone else for her illegal and corrupt actions. However Powell stated, “The truth is, she was using [the private email server] for a year before I sent her a memo telling her what I did.” Just add this to the long list of Hillary Clinton lies.
On Friday, the New York Times reported that Clinton told FBI officials former Secretary of State Colin Powell had advised her to use a personal email account while she held the Secretary of State office herself.
“Her people have been trying to pin it on me,” Powell, 79, told PEOPLE Saturday night at the Apollo in the Hamptons 2016 Night of Legends fête in East Hampton, New York.
“The truth is, she was using [the private email server] for a year before I sent her a memo telling her what I did,” Powell added.
WOW, HILLARY CLINTON BLAMED COLIN POWELL FOR USING PRIVATE EMAIL, THE BUCK STOPS WITH EVERYONE ELSE BUT THE PANT SUIT …
The NY Times is reporting that Hillary Clinton told the FBI that it was former Secretary of State Colin L. Powell had advised her to use a personal email account. Hey Colin, how do the tire tracks feel on your back from the bus that just ran you over driven by Hillary Clinton? According to the Democratic nominee, Powell made the suggestions at a small dinner party shortly after Clinton took over at the State Department in 2009 and in an email exchange around the same time. Hmm, I wonder if those emails were turned over? Who knows of Powell did or not, but you know what I can guarantee he didn’t advise Hillary Clinton to do … have her own email server in her bathroom capturing all of the private emails. It is sickening to see the lengths this woman will trash everyone else to save her political ass.
Hey Colin, was that the Hillary Mystery Machine that just ran you over?
Pressed by the F.B.I. about her email practices at the State Department, Hillary Clinton told investigators that former Secretary of State Colin L. Powell had advised her to use a personal email account
The account is included in the notes the Federal Bureau of Investigation handed over to Congress on Tuesday, relaying in detail the three-and-a-half-hour interview with Mrs. Clinton in early July that led to the decision by James B. Comey, the bureau’s director, not to pursue criminal charges against her.
Separately, in a 2009 email exchange that also emerged during the F.B.I. questioning, Mrs. Clinton, who had already decided to use private email, asked Mr. Powell about his email practices when he was the nation’s top diplomat under George W. Bush, according to a person with direct knowledge of Mr. Powell’s appearance in the documents, who would not speak for attribution.
The journalist Joe Conason first reported the conversation between Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Powell in his coming book about Bill Clinton’s postpresidency, “Man of the World: The Further Endeavors of Bill Clinton,” which The Times received an advanced copy of.
Do we really need a president who cannot take responsibility for their own actions when they are caught in lie after lie after lie?
New York Post Writes … Ryan Lochte Is Everything the World Hates about Americans … Why Does Lying, Entitled, Unethical Hillary Clinton Get a Pass?
HMM, I WOULD ASK YOU ALL … WHY IS RYAN LOCHTE HELD TO A HIGHER STANDARD THAN HILLARY CLINTON?
Welcome to the double standard of the MSM. As the media tries to make American Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte, yeah most Americans are saying, who, public enemy number one and the face of the “Ugly American” … the same media gives lying, crooked and corrupt Hillary Clinton a pass. The MSM is all over the story as to whether Lochte and 3 other American swimmers who claimed they were robbed at gun point in Rio during the Olympics are lying or not. Calls to throw them in jail, teach them a lesson have been made. Really? In the infamous words of Hillary Clinton, ‘What difference does it make”? Are you telling me that Lochte and the 3 other swimmers, if true lied, should be held to a higher standard than Hillary Clinton? Lochte did not have a private email server in his bathroom saving top secret US government emails. Lochte did not use his position as a member of the America swim team to garner access to the US State Department and export donations to his own family foundation. I am pretty sure he does not have a slush fund family foundation. But you know who does, Hillary Clinton!
Could Liar, Liar, speedo on fire be easily changed to Liar, Liar, Pantsuit on Fire? But the lying, corrupt, in the tank media would rather have you believe that Ryan Lochte is worse than Hillary Clinton. This is the diversion of the media and what they will and will not cover. Hillary Clinton committed a crime and should have been indicted under the espionage act, Lochte is just a fool. The MSM would have you believe that Lochte’s lies and coverup is like Watergate, and Hillary is just a victim of the right wing conspiracy. Get a clue America, wake the hell up!
Sometimes, as I’ve traveled overseas, I’ve been troubled by that notion, of the assumption of the Ugly American. I’ve thought it a cartoon, a caricature, whose time was surely over.
And then, sometimes, you see someone like Ryan Lochte open his mouth.
And when you hear what comes tumbling out, it all makes perfect sense.
That’s the worst part of what Lochte and his stable of stumble-bumbling swimmer pals have done the past few days, now that it’s apparent that whatever might have happened to them late one night — actually, early one morning — in Rio, it wasn’t exactly the way Lochte described it the first time around. In fact, it seems apparent that Lochte and his cohorts in chaos — Jack Conger, Gunnar Bentz and Jimmy Feigen, all swimmers representing the US in a decidedly different way than Katie Ledecky and Michael Phelps did — were using the old “robbed-at-gunpoint” chestnut as cover for what was apparently a gas station encounter with a security guard and, quite hilariously, a bathroom door.
LIAR, LIAR, PANTSUIT ON FIRE
Maybe panicky athletes from Kazakhstan or Kenya or Kuala Lampur might have reacted similarly and seized on the easy (though rooted-in-reality) narrative presented for months, that Rio was a cross between the Wild West of yore and the Fort Apache Bronx of the 1970s. Maybe it would have occurred to a rower from Rwanda or a decathlete from Denmark or a sprinter from Spain to go that way. Maybe. But that’s not who did this.
Ryan Lochte — Ugly American with a truly ugly hairstyle — did it.
- Now a recent poll of Texans say 3 out of 5 will vote to secede if Hillary wins the Presidency!
