The Washington Post reported this news as if it were a jaywalking violation. “Email batch provides additional evidence that Clinton Foundation donors got access at State Department,” a headline that begs you not to read the article.
“I’m shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!” exclaimed Captain Renault.
“Your winnings, sir!” remarked the croupier, handing Renault a stack of cash.
“Oh, thank you very much! Everybody out!”
Questions about the relationship between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department have persisted for years. 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 conceal the potentially embarrassing connections.
Clinton had said previously that she turned over all documents related to official State Department business from her private account. However, subsequent inquiries by the FBI and Judicial Watch turned up additional official communications that apparently were not turned over previously.
But Clinton claimed that FBI Director Comey said that she was truthful in her dealings with investigators. Nothing to see here.
Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills won’t survive this. They were set up from the moment they agreed to shill for the boss, with Abedin moving between the Clinton Foundation and State Department like changing subway trains.
The aide, Doug Band, who played a role in expanding the foundation’s reach, wrote to Hillary Clinton’s State Department staff requesting a meeting for a wealthy Nigerian businessman of Lebanese descent who has given the Clinton Foundation $1 million to $5 million in donations, according to disclosure reports.
“We need Gilbert Chagoury to speak to the substance person re Lebanon,” Band wrote in the email addressed to Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills, two of Clinton’s closest aides at State. “As you know he’s a key guy there and to us and is loved in Lebanon. Very imp.”
Abedin responded with the name of the recent U.S. ambassador to Lebanon, Jeffrey Feltman, who was serving as acting assistant secretary of state for near eastern affairs. She added: “I’ll talk to Jeff.”
Anything for a donor.
The foreign policy implications of a Clinton presidency are staggering. It will be Trumpism with a twist: the highest bidder gets the deal, but instead of “America first” it will be Hillary first. Now I see why, back in May, Dr. Michael Brown mused with the idea that a Clinton vs. Trump election could be God’s judgment upon America.
And the liberal media spends thousands of barrels of ink, gigabytes of data, and hours of airtime explaining all the reasons Trump is unacceptable, while writing dry headlines to paper over “potentially embarrassing connections” (read: crimes) by Clinton.
