Newly released emails between Hillary Clinton and top aide Huma Abedin appear to show the former Secretary of State’s mishandling of classified material as well as numerous examples of her “pay-to-play” schemes with top Clinton Foundation donors.
The emails, obtained by government watchdog group Judicial Watch, reveal private communications between Clinton, Abedin, and other senior staff; detailing several instances where the failed presidential nominee violated protocol –and possibly federal law- in mishandling classified material.
“Abedin tried to set up a secure call for Clinton with Dennis, but it didn’t connect, and Clinton said, ‘We’ve now tried twice to go secure and lost both calls.’ After Abedin tells her she had tested the secure line, Clinton says, ‘We finally gave up and talked in code nonsecure,'” said a statement from Judicial Watch.
Other emails show Hillary’s willingness to engage in pay-to-play schemes, with one prominent Clinton donor requesting a change of appointment for the US ambassador to the Dominican Republic.
“On April 12, 2009, Miguel Lausell, a Puerto Rican telecom executive who reportedly donated $1 million to the Clinton Presidential Library and was a member of the Clinton Global Initiative, made a request of Abedin through Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band to push for the appointment of someone to become U.S. ambassador to the Dominican Republic,” said the Watchdog agency.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton is calling for the Justice Department to re-open the investigation of Hillary Clinton; citing multiple examples of corruption, mishandling of top-secret intelligence, and pay-to-play schemes with foreign donors.
“These new emails show why the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s conduct must be resumed,” said Fitton.
