Huma & Hillary Exposed For Trading ‘Favors’ in New Leaked Emails
The discovery of 14,900 email messages former Secretary of State and current Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton failed to turn over to the government was announced on Monday.
The revelation has increased the scrutiny on the Clinton Family Foundation/Global Initiative, longtime Clinton insider Huma Abedin and on the candidate’s truthfulness.
With only 76 days until American voters go to the polls, the email trouble Clinton has tried, unsuccessfully, to put to rest simply refuses to go away.
The newly released emails reveal a cozy relationship between the Clinton Foundation and the U.S. State Department run by Secretary Hillary Clinton who served during Obama’s first term.
Abedin, who began working with the Clintons as a White House intern in 1996 while still a student at George Washington University, exchanged emails with Foundation employees that blurred the distinction between Hillary the Secretary of State and Mrs. Clinton of the Clinton Family Foundation.
In one exchange, Clinton Global Initiative chief Doug Band contacted Abedin for help in facilitating a meeting between the Crown Prince of Bahrain and Secretary Clinton, saying the prince “is a good friend of ours.”
The Prince committed $32 million to a scholarship program with the Clinton Global Initiative and Bahrain donated between $50,000 to $100,000 to the foundation, as did Bahrain Petroleum. The meeting took place as requested.
In one message left for Clinton’s State Department Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, the Foundation’s President Laura Graham, referred to Mrs. Clinton as “our boss,” obviously reflecting the perception by Clinton’s employees that she headed up both entities simultaneously.
The Clinton Foundation has come under fire for accepting donations from foreign governments with sketchy human rights records and the appearance of a quid quo pro relationship with the State Department while Clinton was Secretary.
Clinton testified under oath before Congress that she turned over all “official” emails after leaving her position in the Obama administration to prepare for her run for the presidency, a statement refuted by FBI Director James Comey who confirmed the agency’s investigation found “thousands of emails” that were not turned over in compliance with federal law.
Mrs. Clinton’s insistence on using the secret “home-brew” server effectively shielded her work at the Department from federal Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, hiding the overlap between her two roles as public servant and fundraiser-in-chief of the multi-million dollar “charitable” foundation.
