BOMBSHELL: Huma Abedin Emails Connect Clinton Foundation to Russia
Bring on the Russia investigation!
Talk about looking for something right under your nose, the Left have opened a can of worms.
Once the special counsel starts digging into RussiaGate, the Left will wish they had never let this genie out of the bottle.
First, what we know.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta received millions from the Russians in shady deals.
The media’s focus on Trump’s Russian connections ignores the much more extensive and lucrative business relationships of top Democrats with Kremlin-associated oligarchs and companies. And thanks to the Panama Papers, we know that the Podesta Group lobbied for Russia’s largest bank, Sberbank. “Sberbank is the Kremlin, they don’t do anything major without Putin’s go-ahead. They don’t tell him ‘no’ either,” explained a retired senior U.S. intelligence official. According to a Reuters report, Tony Podesta was “among the high-profile lobbyists registered to represent organizations backing Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich.” Among these was the European Center, which paid Podesta $900,000 for his lobbying.
Then, what of the Russian connection to The Clinton Foundation?
This extortion racket received millions from the Russians in an obvious pay-for-play.
Here is what we wrote about this obvious crime:
As secretary of state, Clinton bargained with Clinton Foundation donors. One deal netted Russia control of 20% of American uranium reserves. Another gave Putin access to American military technology.
Rosatom, a Russian state atomic energy agency, sought to purchase Uranium One, a Canadian based company in control of U.S. uranium. The deal required State Department approval. While State considered the deal, the chairman of Uranium One, Mr. Telfer, made four donations totaling $2.35 million to the Clinton Foundation. In 2010, Uranium One appealed to the American Embassy to secure continued possession of its Kazakhstan mines. That same year, Telfer donated $1 million; another $250,000 in 2010, the year the Russians sought majority control; $600,000 in 2011; and $500,000 in 2012.
Now we have this latest revelation.
Government watchdog Judicial Watch has found a number of new explosive emails belonging to former Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
The emails contain classified information and showed favors being done for a Russia connected organization through the Clinton Foundation while she was Secretary of State.
Judicial Watch sued the State Department to get the emails, and the court recently obliged.
According to Judicial Watch,
“The new Abedin emails also reveal additional instances in which Clinton’s then- scheduler Lona Valmoro forwarded the former secretary of state’s detailed daily schedule to top Clinton Foundation officials. The new emails also reveal a number of favors that were requested and carried out,” Judicial Watch found. “In May 2010, Abedin tells Band that she has ‘hooked up’ people from the Russian American Foundation with ‘the right people’ at the State Department after Abedin received a request from Russian American Foundation Vice President Rina Kirshner, forwarded by Clinton Foundation donor Eddie Trump (no relation to President Trump).”
In what should come as no surprise, Judicial Watch found a series of email chains containing classified information.
More importantly, Clinton refused to turn over these from the private server to the State Department as required by law.
As they point out,
“The new documents included 115 Clinton email exchanges not previously turned over to the State Department, bringing the known total to date to at least 432 emails that were not part of the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton turned over to the State Department. These records further appear to contradict statements by Clinton that, ‘as far as she knew,’ all of her government emails were turned over to the State Department,” the documents show. “On December 6, 2010, Secretary Clinton shared classified information with non-U.S. government employees Justin Cooper, then-aide to President Clinton who helped manage Hillary Clinton’s unsecure email system, and Clinton Foundation director Doug Band (neither of whom held security clearances). The email instructs her aide Oscar Flores to ‘print for Bill’ (presumably Bill Clinton).”
Ironically, Hillary Clinton still cries foul.
In an interview at a tech conference in California this week it depicted that the investigation into her server was “the biggest nothing burger, ever.”
Clinton believes if she keeps saying it, then it will be so. However, Judicial Watch believes differently:
“These shocking new Clinton emails show why the Justice Department should reevaluate, reopen, or reinvigorate Clinton, Inc. investigations,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said about the new information. “The casual violation of laws concerning classified material and noxious influence peddling show the Clinton State Department was ‘corruption central’ in the Obama administration. No wonder Clinton’s allies in the State and Justice Departments had been slow-walking and hiding these emails.”
Clinton has no cover any longer. Thus, one would think she would lay low to avoid the Shrapnel.
Apparently, the pursuit of power is too alluring. Clinton just can’t sit it out.
