Surprise, Surprise! More Hillary Clinton Emails!

  • Bill Clinton Hillary Made Mistake Over Personal Email Server

Abedin, who had overlapping roles with the State Department, the foundation and a consulting firm led by Band, responded quickly: "We have all had him on our radar".

Among the 44 previously-unreleased emails obtained by Judicial Watch was an exchange that shines light on the tangled relationship the Clinton Foundation had with the State Department during Clinton's tenure there.

Many critics interpreted those comments as a threat of violence against Clinton, and a Secret Service official told CNN Wednesday that the agency has spoken with the Trump campaign about the remarks.

Clinton's presidential campaign re-iterated that Mills was working as a volunteer on the trip.

The prolonged investigations into her use of a private email server while at the State Department has fuelled public distrust of her and plagued her presidential bid. Republicans, citing her use of private email servers and her deletion of tens of thousands of emails she deemed personal, have accused Clinton of trying to hide the potentially embarrassing connections.

According to CNN, Cheryl Mills, who was then Clinton's chief of staff at the State Department, traveled to NY on June 19, 2012, to interview two people to possible lead the Clinton Foundation. Band asked the aides to get Chagoury in touch with the State Department's "substance person" on Lebanon. "As you know, he's key guy there and to us and is loved in Lebanon".

Abedin responded: "It's jeff feltman", referring to Jeffrey Feltman, who was the US ambassador to Lebanon at the time. "Everybody I know. helps their friends", he said.

"I'm also not going to speak to specific redactions", she replied, stressing that she can't "speak to specific cases". Chagoury never got the meeting he sought with the ambassador to Lebanon.

Fitton and Bossie said they had staffers closely examine the emails to determine what their implications were before they were released.

The message asked people to sign a petition "to the Department of Justice demanding that they launch an investigation into the scandal-plagued Clinton Foundation". "News of its rejection comes immediately after leaked emails exposed a concerning link between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department!"

Not exactly. As the Clinton campaign has countered: "Neither of these emails involve the secretary or relate to the foundation's work". However, the three Federal Bureau of Investigation offices claimed that they received a new lead from a bank that noted "suspicious activity from a foreigner who had donated to the Clinton Foundation". "The fact remains that Hillary Clinton never took action as Secretary of State because of donations to the Clinton Foundation", NPR quotes a Clinton spokesperson as saying. He's also pledged US$1 billion to the Clinton Global Initiative, an "organization that convenes global leaders to devise and implement innovative solutions to the world's most pressing problems", according to its website.

Observers and legal experts say such emails could provide an insight into how the US government works and how redlines become blurry when influential individuals, including foreign citizens, request favors from government officials.

"Once again, the Department of Justice has protected Hillary Clinton".
