And also, graft related.I would be stunned, except that I was expecting it. . . Clinton’s Campaign Manager Defends Foreign Foundation Money. and, well, duh: Clinton's economic plans likely to boost her corporate donors, More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money — either personally or through companies or groups — to the Clinton Foundation. Well, of course, it was like a key to the back door.
Is graft considered "personal" because the benefit accrues the Clintons' account?
Judicial Watch reports on the heroic efforts Huma Abedin went to to get favors for people who donated bigly 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.See Judicial Watch for the emails in question, and other cases of Huma Abedin's Quick Fixer operation.
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.
Also included among the Abedin-Band emails is an exchange in which Band urged Abedin to get the Clinton State Department to intervene in order to obtain a visa for members of the Wolverhampton (UK) Football Club, one of whose members was apparently having difficulty because of a “criminal charge.” Band was acting at the behest of Casey Wasserman, a millionaire Hollywood sports entertainment executive and President of the Wasserman Foundation. Wasserman has donated between $5 million and $10 million to the Clinton Foundation through the Wasserman Foundation.
The Abedin emails also reveal that Slimfast tycoon S. Daniel Abraham was granted almost immediate access to then-Secretary of State Clinton, with Abedin serving as the facilitator. According to the Clinton Foundation website, Abraham, like the Wasserman Foundation, has given between $5 million and $10 million to the Clinton Foundation. The emails indicate that Abraham was granted almost immediate access to Clinton upon request...
Judge James E. Boasberg of Federal District Court, ordered that the emails be released ASAP:
Under the likely timetable, the soonest the new emails would be released is October. The State Department released the original emails in monthly installments over nearly a year, through February, though it missed several court-ordered deadlines as its staff and other agencies scrutinized the documents for classified information.Expect the State Dept to put scanning these emails behind the back burner.
Fellow traveler Colin Powell Says Hillary Clinton's 'People Have Been Trying to Pin' Email Scandal on Him. Which requires time travel, since she was using the private unsecured basement server to handle classified data for a year before she allegedly talked to him about it. He also specifically told her not to use it for classified data. Oooops! Too late. Did Hillary lie when she told the FBI about Powell's advice, or was she just a forgetful incompetent old lady? Clinton’s pathetic ‘Colin Powell made me do it’ defense
Clinton has been desperate for the moral cover of Colin Powell for her email arrangement since the scandal first broke last year. Now we’ve learned that Clinton told the FBI that Powell advised her to use private email as secretary of state at a dinner in 2009. This escalates Clinton’s email defense from, “Hey, Colin Powell did it, too,” all the way to, “Colin Powell made me do it.”My bet is that Lynch/Comey give her the benefit of being stupid. Apparent Army Opsec Brief Lists Hillary Clinton, David Petraeus As Examples Of Insider Security Threats. Loose
The Powell defense has given Clinton shills something to say on TV, but doesn’t make much sense.
While the former general used a private email as secretary of state, it was at a time when the department didn’t have a robust email system of its own. And he obviously didn’t set up his own private server.
After Powell left State, the department’s rules steadily got stricter about using official email for State Department business and preserving email records — and Clinton blew through them all.
Trump: Appoint special prosecutor over e-mail scandal. Probably a safe call since the Obama Justice Department has no intention of allowing it.
Huma Abedin worked at a radical Muslim journal for a dozen years. Huma Abedin Was Listed as Editor of Extremist Islamist Journal; Claims Her Name Was Just on the Masthead, But She Didn't Actually Perform Any Duties. She claims it was not a working position. Huma Abedin denies active role at radical Muslim journal.
A journalism major at George Washington University, Abedin, 40, was listed as “assistant editor” of the journal from 1996 to 2008, when her name was removed from the staff box and she went to work for Clinton at the State Department.If she'd held onto the post past 2008, she would have been a quadruple dipper, State Dept., Clinton Foundation, Holdings, and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Her brother, who was an associate editor, and a sister, also employed as an assistant editor, are listed as staff members.
Abedin’s Pakistani mother, Saleha Mahmood Abedin, remains editor-in-chief.
