New Hillary Emails Expose Bill Pushing Meetings With Foundation Donors, Requests For "Diplomatic Passports"

Tyler Durden's picture

Judicial Watch just released another 510 pages of State Department emails from Hillary's tenure as the "inconvenient facts" just keep piling up for the Democratic nominee.  Per Judicial Watch, the new disclosure includes 37 Hillary email exchanges that were not turned over as part of her initial 55,000 page submission to the State Department.  Obviously, these new discoveries continue to contradict Hillary's claims to Congress that she turned over all of her government emails to the State Department. 

The new release includes, among other things, Clinton Foundation executive, Doug Band, reaching out to Huma Abedin to help facilitate "diplomatic passports" for himself, Justin Cooper (member of Bill Clinton's personal office) and one other person referred to as "jd".  The emails also reveal Bill Clinton pushing the State Department for a meeting between Hillary and the CEO of Dow Chemical, a $1-$5mm donor to the Clinton Foundation.  Emails also reveal Hillary forwarding classified information to Huma's email account and a request from Newsmax CEO, Chris Ruddy, for a State Department favor.

But we're sure Donna Brazile, the new DNC chair, will see these various "requests for favors" from the Clinton Foundation and others as just another attempt to "criminalize normal behavior."

Below is the exchange between Doug Band (Clinton Foundation Executive) and Huma Abedin back in July 2009 where Band requests diplomatic passports for himself, Justin Cooper (aka "justy") and and unknown person referred to as "jd."

Ok will figure it out


Per Judicial Watch, the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations strictly limits the granting of diplomatic passports to members of the Foreign Service, their family members, or those working on U.S. government contracts. According to 22 CFR 51.3:

A diplomatic passport is issued to a Foreign Service officer or to a person having diplomatic status or comparable status because he or she is traveling abroad to carry out diplomatic duties on behalf of the U.S. Government. When authorized by the Department, spouses and family members of such persons may be issued diplomatic passports. When authorized by the Department, a diplomatic passport may be issued to a U.S. Government contractor if the contractor meets the eligibility requirements for a diplomatic passport and the diplomatic passport is necessary to complete his or her mission.


Next we have the exchange where Huma admits that Bill Clinton is pushing for a meeting between Hillary and the CEO of Dow Chemial, a $1-$5mm donor to the Clinton Foundation.

Subject: RE: CEO of dow


Lona, I have arranged this pull aside for on the arrival in the Hold Room across the hall from the ballroom, immediately prior to the Secretary’s entrance and remarks.


The next exchange begins as Band urges Abedin to follow up on a request from Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy to set up a meeting with then-Ambassador to Panama Barbara Stephenson on behalf of lobbyist Amb. Otto Reich, President Reagan’s ambassador to Venezuela who maintained high-level government positions during the tenure of both President George H.W. Bush and President George Bush.  In early September, Ruddy then was contacted by State Department Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs, Roberta S. Jacobson, at the behest of Band and Abedin, in reference to Ruddy’s concerns about Wilson Lucom, whose estate was embroiled in a heated multi-million-dollar lawsuit.  Ruddy’s Newsmax Media Inc, made a contribution to the Clinton Foundation of between $1 million and $5 million. The emails show the responsible official was put in contact with Ruddy.

She’s the dep assistant secretary for the whole bureau.


The Panama desk guy is on leave so I asked that she at least reach out.


And the plume of smoke continues to grow... 

But what say you, ZH readers?  Is this all an attempt by the "alt-right" to, as Donna Brazile would say, "criminalize normal behavior" or have the Clintons been actively engaged in selling influence to donors?  At lease one poll would suggest the overwhelming majority of people believe the latter.

The newly "found" emails are coming in smaller numbers now, but they're more damning in their content.

Eventually (hopefully the week before the election) there will be a single email released where all the big players are copied in saying "You know all this stuff we're doing is highly illegal, right?"  HRC responds:  "Don't worry.  Those idiots will never catch us."

Boris Badenov's picture

To increase the "catch", refer to Trey Gowdy's question to Martha MacCallum, "Do you consider Foundation emails to be private?"

It won't be in the "news" that 90% of the people watch/listen to so it didn't happen.  The "news" media have become an arm of the statist government.  Pravda would be proud.

Pravda would be envious.  They never had it so easy as the US media does. Stalin, Mao, Hitler all wish they had a lapdog news media - they actually had to intimidate their media to do their bidding.

"criminalize normal behavior" or “normalize criminal behavior”?

Is it so difficult for anyone to see the low hanging fruit displayed by so many conspirators guilty of perjury, aiding & abetting and obstruction of justice as well as racketeering?   A decent prosecutor could clean out the DNC and the state department right now without touching Hitlary.

bill clinton was the reason for the separate server.

It would appear that the US government sees everyone as 'Indians'

Hopefully, given the number of broken promises, Buffalo Bill was on to something.

Have they found any email involving sex? Lacking anything sexual, the people and media don't seem to take the Clintons' crimes seriously. I bet Weiner's story get more attention than Hillary's emails.

@NoDebt - do you REALLY think that would even make a difference. A year ago, I would have said absolutely. Now, Im not so sure. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if half the country still voted for her. Maybe Im just to jaded and cynical and need to take a ZH break for a while, but I have lost pretty much all faith in my fellow americans to pull their heads out of their asses and start standing up to shit like this. The fact that they have witnessed this country turn into a banana republic like this and still support her means, in my mind, these people are hopeless. And, to paraphrase someone who was much smarter than I, they deserve to get what they want, and get it hard.

All this Clinton corruption is way beyond ridiculous. With months left until the election and more leaks and emails to come at what point does someone bring charges and take her down.

How can she continue to be allowed to run for president?
