From Whitewater to Benghazi: A Clinton-Scandal Primer

More than half of the people outside the government with whom Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met were also donors to the Clinton Foundation.

Here's the corruption story about The Clinton Foundation, in a nutshell: If Bill and Chelsea Clinton are leading a powerful private philanthropy while Hillary Clinton holds a high-ranking government post, it is guaranteed to create at least the appearance of donations to the foundation in return for access to the government.

Conscious of this danger, the Obama administration extracted an agreementfrom the foundation to disclose its donors, as a prerequisite for Hillary Clinton becoming secretary of state. That disclosure does not seem to have prevented potential conflicts of interest—but it does undergird two important stories Tuesday.

The Washington Post, using emails revealed as part of a lawsuit by the accountability group Judicial Watch, traces the paths from foundation donors to State Department supplicants. Often, the requests seem to have come through Doug Band, a foundation official and close aide to Bill Clinton, and arrived with Huma Abedin, a close aide to Hillary Clinton at the State Department. (At the end of her time at the State Department, Abedin received a special classification allowing her to also work for Teneo, Band’s consultancy.)

A Los Angeles sports executive who gave $5 to $10 million to the foundation sought help getting a visa for a British soccer player with a criminal record. (“Makes me nervous to get involved but I’ll ask,” Abedin wrote to Band. “then dont,” he replied.) An activist who gave between $100,00 and $250,000 wanted to set up a meeting between Clinton and an executive at Peabody Coal. “Huma, I need your help now to intervene please,” she wrote. “We need this meeting with Secretary Clinton, who has been there now for nearly six months. This is, by the way, my first request.”

Others of those involved seem unusual. The crown prince of Bahrain, an American ally in the gulf, got a meeting, though he requested it both through official channels and through the Clinton Foundation side channel. Muhammad Yunus, the Nobel Peace laureate whose Grameen Bank gave six figures, met with Clinton to discuss his persecution by the Bangladeshi government.

In total, the Associated Press calculates:

As questions about the Clinton Foundation mount, the organization announced last week(HA-HA!..AFTER THE DAMAGE DONE?) that it would not accept foreign or corporate donations if Hillary Clinton wins the presidency. (On Monday, Donald Trump called for a special prosecutor to look into the foundation.) But these stories show why that measure probably should have been taken before Clinton became secretary of state, and why it’s insufficient if she’s president.

 

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…. At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs, according to a review of State Department calendars released so far to The Associated Press.

Even if every one of the meetings that Secretary Clinton had with foundation donors was a meeting she would have had anyway, the impression that one can pay to play means that there’s no tidy way to wall the two off. If the Clinton Foundation hadn’t existed and been taking these donations, no one would look askance at Secretary Clinton meeting with many of the principals. Barring corporate and foreign donors, while important, seems incomplete if Clinton is president, in charge of not only foreign but domestic policy. Does anyone believe wealthy executives can’t figure out how to give a personal donation and then try to leverage that for corporate aid? This is why there’s an increasing drumbeat for the Clintons to shut down the foundation entirely, or perhaps to mothball it. Any future findings that suggest pay-for-access will only magnify those calls—and hurt Clinton politically.

And not nearly all of Clinton’s State Department emails have been made public. On Monday, the Post reported that during the course of its recent investigation, the FBI found nearly 15,000 new and unreleased documents that Clinton did not turn over to the State Department. It’s not yet clear what’s in those emails, like how many are personal and how any are work-related and must be made public. In a court hearing on Monday, a federal judge deemed the State Department’s timeline for sorting them and determining that too slow, and demanded a faster plan.

 

There’s been a fresh development in the controversies covered here almost daily for the last week. On Friday, a federal judge ruled that Clinton would have to testify in writing about her email system (though in a victory for her she will not be deposed in person). Also last week, the FBI handed over documents from its investigation of the email system to Congress, as Republican members tried to cajole the Justice Department into charging Clinton with perjury. The week before that, another set of emails revealed by Judicial Watch showed Band and Abedin communicating about business that crossed the Clinton Foundation-State barrier. (These emails will have hundreds, or THOUSANDS, of examples of Hillary taking PAYMENT, FOR ACCESS TO HER. BILL DID IT AS ARKANSAS' GOVERNOR, HILLARY DIRECTED IT WHEN BILL WAS PRESIDENT. DO THESE BRAIN-DEAD DEMOCRAPS EXPECT THE PUBLIC TO BELIEVE THAT SHE 'DIDN'T DO IT" , WHILE SHE WAS SEC. STATE, WITH TENS OF THOUSANDS OF EMAILS, FROM "DONORS", WHO JUST HAPPENED TO NEED A FAVOR"? )

Bwaaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahahahahahahahaaaa!

Judge orders State Department to review 14,900 Clinton emails

 

By Ginger Gibson and Arshad Mohammed | WASHINGTON

A judge ordered the U.S. State Department on Monday to review for possible release 14,900 of Hillary Clinton's emails and attachments that the FBI found when investigating her use of a private email server as secretary of state.

The judge also scheduled a Sept. 23 hearing on when to release the emails, a deadline that raises the possibility some will become public before the Nov. 8 presidential election between Democrat Clinton and her Republican rival, Donald Trump.

Questions about her email practices as secretary of state have dogged Clinton's White House run and triggered a Federal Bureau of Investigation probe that found she was "extremely careless" with sensitive information by using a private server but recommended against bringing charges.

State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters it was still reviewing the 14,900 documents and it was unclear how many were personal or work-related. He also said it was unclear how many may duplicate those already released but that there were "likely to be quite a few" not previously disclosed.

The department has already culled through some 30,068 of Clinton emails from her 2009-2013 tenure as secretary of state and released most of them, amounting to some 55,000 pages. More than 2,000 emails were found to contain classified information.

The disclosure of further emails could provide more fodder for opponents who have seized on the issue to argue that Clinton is untrustworthy.

Clinton, who leads Trump in opinion polls, has said she did not compromise classified information and used a private server for convenience. She later apologized, saying: "I take responsibility."

The order by U.S. District Court Judge James Boasberg, who is overseeing a group of lawsuits seeking to make Clinton's emails public, came the day a conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch, made public a batch of Clinton's emails obtained through a lawsuit.

Judicial Watch said the emails showed donors to the Clinton family's charitable foundation seeking access to her during the period she was secretary of state.

Toner said the State Department believed there was "no impropriety" in foundation officials seeking to meet Clinton, saying any secretary of state or aides get such requests from a wide range of people.

The 14,900 documents referred to by Boasberg are believed to include emails not included among those Clinton previously turned over to the State Department after her use of a private email server and private email account became public.

"This number reflects both non-record (meaning personal) and record materials (meaning work related)," said a U.S. official who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Some of the emails were found on the servers of people with whom Clinton or her staff was communicating.

'TRYING TO PIN IT ON ME'

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell dismissed reports over the weekend that Clinton told federal investigators that it was at his suggestion that she used a personal email account, according to a media report.

Powell, who served as the nation's top diplomat from 2001 to 2005 under Republican President George W. Bush, told People magazine that while he did send Clinton a memo about his own email practices, Clinton had already chosen to use personal email rather than a government account while she had the job.

"Her people have been trying to pin it on me. ... The truth is, she was using (the private email server) for a year before I sent her a memo telling her what I did," Powell told People on Saturday.

The New York Times reported last week that Clinton told federal investigators that Powell had suggested she use personal email for unclassified email when the two spoke over dinner. The conversation occurred "in the early months" of Clinton's tenure at the State Department, the Times said, citing a forthcoming book by journalist Joe Conason that first reported the dinner exchange.

Representatives for Powell, in a separate statement to NBC News, said he had no recollection of the conversation with Clinton.

"He did write former Secretary Clinton an email memo describing his use of his personal AOL email account for unclassified messages and how it vastly improved communications within the State Department," his office told NBC on Friday.

The email exchange occurred in 2009, according to the Times.

Powell and aides to his successor as secretary of state in the Bush administration, Condoleezza Rice, received some classified information via personal email accounts, Reuters has reported. Clinton's additional use of a personal computer server at her home, however, broke State Department rules, an internal watchdog found.(SHE HAD SOMETHING TO HIDE, FROM A LAWFUL REVIEW, SO SHE BROKE THE LAW, AND PUT A PRIVATE SERVER IN A BARN, IN THE WOODS, IN UPSTATE NEW YORK, TO TRANSMIT STATE DEPARTMENT SENSITIVE AND CLASSIFIES DATA, AND TO HIDE "PERSONAL" CORRESPONDENCES, TO )

Judge irked by State Dept.'s delay in releasing rest of Clinton's emails

A federal judge said Tuesday he was disturbed by the State Department's failure to meet a deadline he ordered to finish the public release of 54,000 pages of email messages Hillary Clinton sent or received during her four years as secretary of state.

"The government has put me between a rock and a hard place....which is a position I don't like to be in," U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras said during a half-hour-long hearing Tuesday.

Story Continued Below

Contreras signaled that he was not inclined to grant State's request that the deadline for a release of all remaining pages of Clinton's emails be extended until the end of this month. However, he did not immediately set a new deadline for State to complete its work on the Clinton messages.

"The department should expect to produce something on the 18th, if not sooner," the judge said.

The prolonged disclosure process is helping to keep the issue of Clinton's emails in the news as she tries to fend off a surprisingly strong challenge from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Tuesday's hearing took place as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by Vice News reporter Jason Leopold. His lawyers have argued that allowing State to drag out the release of the emails deprives voters in the Democratic primaries and caucuses of information they are entitled to have as they make up their minds.

Contreras said he agreed.

"To state the obvious, these documents have a lot of public interest and the timing is important for the reasons stated by the plaintiff," said the judge, who was appointed by President Barack Obama.

Back in May of last year, Contreras ordered the State Department to make monthly releases of Clinton's emails starting in June and concluding by Jan. 29. Last month, State told Contreras that it would be unable to meet the deadline because it overlooked more than 7,000 pages of emails that required interagency review but were never sent to those agencies or were only distributed to some of the relevant agencies. The diplomatic agency also said the blizzard that struck Washington last month delayed distribution of the messages once they were discovered.

All the messages come from a private account and server Clinton used while secretary, an arrangement which has drawn sharp criticism from Republicans and transparency advocates and has emerged as a significant political liability for Clinton in the presidential race. After her lawyers sifted the messages to exclude personal ones, she turned over the remaining roughly 30,000 emails to the State Department in December 2014 at its request.

At the beginning of Tuesday's hearing, Contreras pressed Justice Department attorney Robert Prince about how many messages had already cleared the review process and how soon they could be posted.

Prince said about 570 emails were either done being reviewed or close to it.

"Let's get those up by [next] Tuesday," the judge proposed.

"Your honor, I don't think that's at all possible," Prince replied. He said there were numerous logistical steps in preparing the emails for release on State's website, including transferring them from a classified platform to an unclassified one. The government attorney also warned that starting to post some of the messages would divert personnel from the review process and potentially delay the remaining messages.

"What I've been told by my client is this is an involved process," Prince said, saying that the posting process alone takes at least a week.

"That seems an unreasonably long period of time to just post or give access to something that's already passed the clearance," the judge said.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm???

 

HERE'S A TASTE, UP-YOUR-ASS-ISS?

 

A federal judge prodded the State Department to quickly review a batch of 14,900 recently discovered emails as the controversy over Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s correspondence while she served as America’s top diplomat continued to simmer.

Judge James Boasberg, in an order, set a deadline for the department to complete the email review by Sept. 22 to determine which ones contain sensitive government information and which are strictly personal conversations. That could pave the way for the emails to be released as early as mid-October.

The emails were found by the Federal Bureau of Investigation during its probe of Mrs. Clinton’s use of private email when she was secretary of state. The FBI concluded in July that no crimes had been committed.

The judge’s request came on the same day as the release of a separate batch of emails showing a Clinton Foundation official seeking access to the department while Mrs. Clinton was secretary of state.

Those emails, obtained through a lawsuit by a conservative watchdog group, kept the Clinton family’s charitable foundation in the limelight as Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was attacking its activities.

In one email exchange, from June 2009, Doug Band of the Clinton Foundation wrote toHuma Abedin, a top adviser to Mrs. Clinton at the State Department, seeking a meeting between the crown prince of Bahrain and Mrs. Clinton.

“Cp of Bahrain in tomorrow to Friday. Asking to see her,” wrote Mr. Band, using shorthand for “crown prince.” Mr. Band, a longtime aide of former President Bill Clinton,added: “Good friend of ours.”

Ms. Abedin, who now works for Mrs. Clinton’s campaign, responded that Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad al Khalifa had sought a meeting with Mrs. Clinton the previous week “thru normal channels,” and that the secretary of state had said she “doesn’t want to commit to anything for Thurs or Fri until she knows how she will feel.”

Two days later, Ms. Abedin wrote to Mr. Band again: “We have reached out thru official channels.”

The new emails show that while Mr. Band sought to pass along the wishes of donors, Ms. Abedin deferred to official channels. The emails were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by the group Judicial Watch against the State Department. The 725 pages of emails from Mrs. Clinton’s personal server included material that wasn’t handed over to the government as part of the Democratic nominee’s archive.

Josh Schwerin, a Clinton campaign spokesman, defended Mrs. Clinton’s and Ms. Abedin’s actions at the State Department. “Once again, this right-wing organization that has been going after the Clintons since the 1990s is distorting facts to make utterly false attacks,” he said. “No matter how this group tries to mischaracterize these documents, the fact remains that Hillary Clinton never took action as secretary of state because of donations to the Clinton Foundation,” he said.

A spokesman for the Clinton Foundation, a nonprofit established by Mr. Clinton, didn’t return requests for comment.

At a rally in Akron, Ohio, on Monday, Mr. Trump devoted a significant portion of his speech to attacking the Clinton Foundation, which he described as a “pay-for-play” operation. “Pay the Clinton Foundation huge sums of money … and you got to play with the State Department,” he said. Earlier in the day, before the emails were released, he had called for the Clinton Foundation to be shut down entirely.

While meetings with foreign heads of state is a primary role for a U.S. secretary of state, critics of Mrs. Clinton have raised questions about Clinton Foundation donors’ access to the State Department during her tenure.

The Kingdom of Bahrain has donated between $50,000 and $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation since its founding, according to the organization’s disclosures.

The crown prince in 1999 launched a scholarship program and in 2005 committed to the Clinton Global Initiative, a wing of the foundation that coordinates charitable projects, to spend $32 million on the project, according to the website. The funds don’t go to CGI.

In a separate email exchange, Mr. Band sought Ms. Abedin’s help in obtaining a visa for a member of a U.K. soccer league at the request of Casey Wasserman, president of the Wasserman Foundation, which donated between $5 million and $10 million to the Clinton Foundation.

“I doubt we can do anything, but maybe we can help with an interview,” Ms. Abedin wrote. “I’ll ask.” She wrote again: “I got this now, makes me nervous to get involved but I’ll ask.”

Mr. Band responded: “Then don’t.”

A spokeswoman for Mr. Wasserman said the forwarded email request never resulted in a visa. Mr. Band declined to comment on Monday.

The new emails were also notable because they discussed an interaction between a Clinton Foundation donor and Mrs. Clinton. Past email exchanges have depicted foundation officials seeking access to State Department officials, but not the secretary of state herself.

While Mrs. Clinton is no longer involved with the foundation, her husband and daughter, Chelsea, continue to attend the organization’s events. The Clinton Foundation said both would stop raising money for the organization and turn over operations to independent parties if Mrs. Clinton were elected.

While at the State Department, Ms. Abedin received a special designation from the agency that allowed her to work there while also doing outside work. During that period, she held two other positions, at the Clinton Foundation and at Teneo, a consulting firm founded by Mr. Band.

Mr. Band was a chief adviser in helping the former president launch the Clinton Foundation after leaving the White House.

Earlier this month, Judicial Watch released a separate batch of emails showing Mr. Band seeking help from top aides to Mrs. Clinton to set up a meeting between a State Department official and a top donor to the Clinton Foundation, Lebanese-Nigerian billionaire Gilbert Chagoury. In that email exchange, Mr. Band employed similar language, calling Mr. Chagoury a “key guy there and to us.”

The Clinton campaign has since said that Mr. Chagoury had been seeking to offer the State Department his insights on the Lebanese election, rather than looking to elicit any action.

Intellectual corruption doesn't hide in plain sight, it directs society in full view of everyone playing a role.

 

Damn, another great bumper sticker.

From Whitewater to Benghazi: A Clinton-Scandal Primer

More than half of the people outside the government with whom Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met were also donors to the Clinton Foundation.

 

Hmm, really? Well they made a good choice in donating to the Clinton Foundation.

Legal law abiding American citizens want to be treated fairly - - - they do want justice.

Then when a civil war surfaces, our politicians are staring off into space & scratching their heads.

Yeah I am. It's bullshit that the republicans get to slander a person with facts

facts that neither prove self containment nor approve self evident displacement. Truth is intellectual corruption distorts everything naturally balancing together in plain sight all the time.

No, sole, actually, NOT a "great bumper sticker".......Because it ACTUALLY REQUIRES THINKING ABOUT IT.....

 

- to my great sadness, the dumbing down, of the American population, with Liberal feel-goodisms in our colleges and Public Schools, has HELPED HASTEN THE END, OF THIS EMPIRE.....

 

"Condoms-on-vegetables, for Johnny", instead of Trigonometry and Calculus,

 

"Heather Has TWO Mommies", and "Daddy's Bearded Roomate named Mary" , instead of Yeats and Kipling, has given us a population of at least 50% idiots, that swallow the Leftist Kool-Aid, that is spooned out HOURLY, by MESS-LSD, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, etc., etc...And THAT Kool-Aid, is NO LESS HARMFUL TO THEM, than the Rev. Jim Jones's version, in Guyana.

Guess your intellect just doesn't appreciate substance over symbolism or matter frames the mind misdirected by context over content held specifically in place now all the time.

 

Oh, "actual is in place, factual wishes it wasn't self evident".
