On Fox News the Kelly File, Peter Sweitzer Author of the “Clinton Clash” was interviewed tonight. Peter pointed out that the State Department has NOT been cooperative regarding releasing these emails. God Bless the Judges that are now involved and demanding that the State Department turn over these emails to Judicial Watch and Citizens United.”
“A conservative, anti-Clinton group called Judicial Watch sued the State Department under freedom of information laws for emails from Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin, during her time at the State Department. Judicial Watch has been publishing them as the State Department turns them over. They are separate from the 55,000 pages of emails Clinton has already turned over.”
“Two of the emails were from a long-time aide to President Bill Clinton, Doug Band, who now works at the Clinton Foundation. One email shows he contacted Hillary Clinton’s top aides asking them to find a job for an associate. The name was withheld from the document.”
“It’s important to take care of [redacted],” Band wrote to Abedin and Cheryl Mills, another top Clinton aide. Abedin replied, “Personnel has been sending him options.”
“When pressed today, the State Department would not say who the emails referred to, citing privacy concerns. “We feel confident that all the rules were followed,” State Department spokesman Elizabeth Trudeau said today.”
“In the second email, Band asked Abedin and Mills to connect a Clinton Foundation donor, a Lebanese-Nigerian billionaire, to officials in the State Department, saying the donor is a “key guy there [Lebanon] and to us.” Band also suggested that Abedin introduce the donor to former U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon Jeffrey Feltman.” (Again, foreign donors involved with the Clinton Foundation, the most damaging of evidence to come. ©Natalie Keshing)
“A third email shows that Cheryl Mills, who was keenly aware of Clinton’s use of private email, received notice of a “significant” freedom of information request seeking all email accounts attached to Clinton’s name at the State Department. The department ended up falsely reporting back to that requester that no such records were found. That inaccurate response, which was later noted in a State Department’s Inspector General report, raises questions in the eyes of Clinton critics as to why Mills didn’t speak up, knowing what she did.”
What Are the Presidential Campaigns Saying?
“Donald Trump‘s campaign released a statement last night calling the emails from Doug Band “more evidence that Hillary Clinton lacks the judgment, character, stability and temperament to be within 1,000 miles of public power.” It went on the say, Clinton “views public office as nothing more than a means to personal enrichment,” calling her “corrupt.”
The Clinton camp denied that any impropriety occurred.
“Neither of these emails involve the secretary or relate to the foundation’s work,” the Clinton campaign said in a statement early today. “They are communications between her aides and the president’s personal aide, and indeed the recommendation was for one of the secretary’s former staffers who was not employed by the foundation.”
“A couple of very bad ones came out, and it’s called pay for play,” Trump said. “And some of these were really, really bad and illegal. If it’s true, it’s illegal. You’re paying and you’re getting things.”
“Despite this claim, there has been no concrete evidence linking State Department favors to foreign donors in exchange for donations to the Clinton Foundation.” (Well why should this surprise us since there are many officials now associated with this cover-up still working within the Department of Justice and even the FBI ©Natalie Keshing)
“Neither campaign has commented on the Mills email, but Michael Short of the Republican National Committee said that email contradicts her previous deposition that she had no “specific recollection” about a Freedom of Information Act request regarding Clinton’s email accounts. (Perjury charges should follow as soon as possible, we can’t afford for anymore time to pass. ©Natalie Keshing)”
“The disconnect between these new revelations and her sworn testimony suggests Mills gave a misleading account under oath to hide an attempted cover up of Clinton’s reckless email arrangement,” Short said in an email to ABC News.”
On a much more serious note, the death of Seth Rich was discussed. Seth Rich was a Democratic National Committee staffer who was killed last month in a alleged “botched robbery” attempt at 4:00 am. Wikileaks Julian Assange had mentioned Seth Rich’s name and it was suspected that Seth Rich was leaking information to Wikileaks. Now Seth Rich is dead.
“After Wikileaks founder Julian Assange implied Rich was the source of the recent Democratic National Convention leak — and offered $20,000 for info on Rich’s murder — the grieving family slammed him for trying to “politicize this horrible tragedy.”
I have to say that these extraordinarily terrible criminal circumstances don’t surprise me. When I started to write about these investigations searching for answers myself about the email unsecured servers and the Clinton Foundation I also felt I was treading into dangerous territory.
At one point I did think of Karen Silkwood from the movie Silkwood. People should never underestimate the seriousness of these crimes that are now starting to be exposed. Peter Sweitzer said, “The Noose Is Tightening Around The Neck.”
