On Monday the State Department surprised America by suddenly finding 323 more pages of emails between Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin, many of which contained classified material! The 323 pages of emails were released in the aftermath of the FBI announcement that they’d discovered hundreds of thousands of new Clinton emails on a laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin. Judicial Watch was able to force the release of the emails using the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA); otherwise we may never have even known that the State Department was holding on to them.
Several of the emails were withheld from the State Department in Dec. 2014, when Clinton’s lawyers turned over roughly 55,000 pages of hand-selected emails and, later, deleted an equal number they deemed personal in nature.
At least one of those was an email chain Clinton sent Abedin that was previously classified when the bulk of it was provided to the State Department. In it, Clinton asked Abedin to print a sensitive memo from informal advisor Sidney Blumenthal about the political situation in Northern Ireland.
In case you were wondering, Sidney Blumenthal DID NOT have clearance to view said information, and yet Clinton was still passing sensitive information along to him.
Over at Judicial Watch we also learn that some of the emails illustrate the very real pay-to-play corruption that the Clinton Foundation/State Department were involved in.
The emails also include an exchange between Abedin, Clinton personal assistant Lauren Jiloty, and Iris Anaya, the assistant to sugar magnate and Clinton Foundation donor Alfonso Fanjul concerning a request for special access to Clinton. On October 13, 2009, Anaya emailed Abedin seeking to arrange a meeting between Fanjul, the CEO of Florida Crystals, and Clinton. Jiloty responded the next day, asking that Anaya talk with Clinton scheduler Lona Valmoro about “setting up a meeting.” Fanjul donated more than $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation and was a Bill Clinton co-chairman in Florida.
In an October 26, 2009, email exchange, power attorney and Hillary Clinton financial supporter, Charlie Ann Syprett, contacted Doug Band, apparently seeking help in getting around U.S. Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) restrictions on U.S. citizens’ ability to travel to Cuba. Syprett ostensibly wanted a waiver from the restrictions to enable people from her organization, SYC Charitable Foundation, to travel to Cuba, noting “we are not asking for something out of the ordinary.”
The emails also show that Valmoro sent Clinton’s government schedule to the unsecure email addresses of numerous members of the Clinton Foundation staff on October 16, 2009, again on October 18, 2009, and on October 25, 2009. The emails also include discussions of personnel matters and appointments on Clinton’s unsecure account, which may run afoul of federal privacy law.
This latest email release continues adding fuel to the dumpster fire that is the Clinton campaign for president. It serves as a reminder that there are likely more emails out there waiting to be discovered and that if Clinton were to be elected, these investigations could continue for YEARS. Hillary Clinton could very likely become the first American president ever to spend her entire first term under almost constant investigation for corruption and criminal activity. This is the definition of a Constitutional crisis.
In fact, on Monday while we were learning about the new State Department emails, we were also learning that the FBI actually had more investigations of the Clintons going on than we originally realized. As the Daily Mail explained, there are currently AT LEAST FIVE separate FBI investigations into the Clinton family and their foundation! FIVE!
The five known investigations are into: Anthony Weiner, Huma Abedin’s estranged husband sexting a 15-year-old; the handling of classified material by Clinton and her staff on her private email server; questions over whether the Clinton Foundation was used as a front for influence-peddling; whether the Virginia governor broke laws about foreign donations; and whether Hillary’s campaign chairman’s brother did the same.
The progress of the Clinton Foundation investigation and that into McAuliffe was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.
The FBI does not generally comment on investigations, so it is entirely possible there are more under way.
The Daily Caller has also been digging into the FBI investigation and has found information that should worry the Clinton team and disgust every American.
FBI field offices in New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C. and Little Rock, Ark., are investigating the Clinton Foundation concerning allegations of pay-to-play financial and political corruption, according to a Wall Street Journal report Sunday.
Mirroring information provided by a former senior law enforcement official that “multiple FBI investigations are underway involving potential corruption charges against the Clinton Foundation,” the Journal confirms what The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group reported in August.
FBI field offices in three cities, specifically, New York, Little Rock and Washington, D.C., were coordinating with the U.S. Attorneys working in those cities. FBI agents in Miami are also joining the probe, TheDCNF has since learned.
If Hillary Clinton is elected President on November 8th, our nation will be facing some very serious repercussions.
