Reason #5609 That Trump Was Elected

Judicial Watch released 448 pages of documents Friday showing further incidences that Huma Abedin, 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s former deputy chief of staff in the State Department, gave special treatment to Clinton Foundation donors while Clinton served as Secretary of State.
. . .
The newly released documents reveal multiple instances of Clinton Foundation donors receiving favors from the State Department. In addition, Clinton Global Initiative executive Doug Band featured prominently throughout the pages as he appeared to wield his influence in Clinton's State Department. Clinton's brother, Tony Rodham, also acted as a sort of go-between for Abedin and Clinton Foundation donor Richard Park.

As Judicial Watch's press release read, "A number of emails show the free flow of information and requests for favors between Clinton's State Department and the Clinton Foundation."

Band ordered Abedin in one exchange to "show love to" Clinton Foundation donor Andrew Liveris, asking that Abedin "mention both me and wjc," an apparent reference to former President Bill Clinton. Liveris is the CEO of Dow Chemical, a company that donated at least $1 million to the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative. Band also requested that Clinton consider granting Clinton Foundation contributor Karlheinz Koegel's request that she speak at an event.

Rodham also lobbied for his friend, Clinton donor Richard Park, to receive access to Clinton. Park asked Rodham to forward a speaking request for Bill Clinton "to your sister" for her to pass along.

Clinton donor Ben Ringel emailed Abedin and requested that she help an Iranian woman obtain a U.S. visa, writing, "We need to get her clearance even only temporary to be with her granddaughter." Band also used Abedin to help Canadian Clinton donor Michael Cohl obtain a visa. In both cases, Abedin complied and forwarded on the email requests.

An email exchange from May 2009 showed Abedin informing Band that Clinton's then-chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, was working "under the radar" on a "career post" at the State Department. As an executive with the Clinton Global Initiative, Band did not need to be involved in the inner workings of the State Department. But Abedin also discussed the U.S. ambassadorship to Barbados with Band after her recommended a candidate to fill the position. Abedin told Band, "I know, he's emailed a few times. But she wants to give to someone else."
Hillary Clinton, the best government money could buy.
