New Evidence Suggests Hillary Used the State Department to Benefit the Clinton Foundation

The latest Judicial Watch document release is addition proof  the premise of Peter Schweizer’s book Clinton Cash, (coordination between the State Department and the Clinton Family Foundation) is 100% true.

Judicial Watch, which as been the number one source of discovery regarding Hillary Clinton’s scandals released 276 pages of internal State Department documents (embedded below) revealing for example that within 48 hours of the 9/11/12 attack on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, Libya,  Mohamed Yusuf al-Magariaf, the president of Libya’s National Congress, asked to participate in a Clinton Global Initiative function and “meet President Clinton.” The meeting happened and was approved with the state department, however the meeting had not previously been disclosed.  Also within the release details how Ms. Clinton’s staff coordinated with the foundation, to help their boss “thank” foundation donors.

“These new State Department documents show Hillary Clinton and her State aides were involved in fundraising for the Clinton Foundation.  It is also incredible that the Libyan president would call and meet Bill Clinton through the Clinton Foundation before meeting Hillary Clinton about Benghazi,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.  “Secretary of State Hillary Clinton worked hand in glove with the Clinton Foundation on fundraising and foreign policy.  Despite the law and her promises to the contrary, Hillary Clinton turned the State Department into the DC office of the Clinton Foundation.”

On September 13, 2012, al-Magariaf advisor Dr. Fathi Nuah wrote to the Clinton Foundation’s Director of Foreign Policy Amitabh Desai:

“Dr. Almagariaf will be addressing the United Nations this September in New York as the Libyan Head of State, and he expressed a wish to meet President Clinton and to participate at the Clinton Global Initiative meeting for New York as well.”

Four hours later, Desai emailed Hillary Clinton’s Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills asking, “Would USG [U.S. Government] have concerns about Libyan President being invited to CGI [Clinton Global Initiative]? Odd timing, I know.” Mills emailed back: “We would not have issues.”

Perhaps the Libyan President wanted to know what was the video Ms. Clinton claimed caused the Benghazi attack after all he had already informed Ms. Clinton it was a pre-planned terrorist attack.

Four days later, on September 17, Desai emailed Mills again, saying, The Libyan president is “asking for a meeting with WJC [William Jefferson Clinton] next week.” Desai asked, “Would you recommend accepting or declining the WJC meeting request?”

The State Department apparently had no objection to the meeting, because on September 26, Desai emailed Mills, “He had a v good meeting with Libya …”

Of course Hillary Clinton and al-Magariaf did not have a meeting until September 24 a week after he met with former President Bubba.

Other documents within the release show Ms. Clinton’s staff coordinated with the Family Foundation’s staff to so she could thank the foundation’s Global Initiative sponsors for their “commitments” during a Foundation speech on September 25, 2009…
