Judicial Watch today released 448 pages of documents from the U.S. Department of State revealing new incidents of Huma Abedin, deputy chief of staff to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, providing special State Department treatment to major donors to the Clinton Foundation and political campaigns.
The heavily redacted documents from Abedins non-government account include an email from Hillary Clintons brother, Tony Rodham, to Abedin revealing that he acted as a go-between for a Clinton Foundation donor, Richard Park. And they reveal Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band instructing Abedin to show love to Clinton donor Andrew Liveris.
The documents included six Clinton email exchanges not previously turned over to the State Department, bringing the known total to date to at least 439 emails that were not part of the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton turned over to the State Department, and further contradicting a statement by Clinton that, as far as she knew, all of her government emails had been turned over to the State Department.
The documents are in response to a court order from a May 5, 2015, lawsuit filed against the State Department (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00684)) for: All emails of official State Department business received or sent by former Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin from January 1, 2009 through February 1, 2013 using a non-state.gov email address.
A number of emails show the free flow of information and requests for favors between Clintons State Department and the Clinton Foundation.
In July 2009, in reference to the US-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue, Clinton Global Initiative head Doug Band told Abedin that she Need[s] to show love to Andrew Liveris, the CEO of Dow Chemical. Band also asked for Liveris to be introduced to Hillary, and have her mention both me and wjc. Dow gave between $1 million and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative. Band also pushes for Clinton to do a favor for Karlheinz Koegel, a major Clinton Foundation contributor, who wanted Hillary Clinton to give the honor speech for his media prize to Merkel.
The emails reveal that on June 19, 2009, Clintons brother, Tony Rodham, passed a long a letter for Hillary Clinton for Clinton donor Richard Park. Park donated $100,000 to Bill Clinton as far back as 1993 and is listed by the Clinton Foundation as a $100,000 to $250,000 donor.
The Washington Examiner reported:
In March 2012, Bill Clinton received an invitation to speak at the Kaesong Industrial Complex in North Korea . Richard Parks friendship with Tony Rodham earned him a direct line to Hillary Clinton while she served as secretary of state. In January 2013, the Korean businessman sent Rodham an email and asked him to forward this to your sister.
On November 14, 2009, Clinton donor Ben Ringel, who has appeared in numerous prior emails asking for favors, emailed Abedin to get help in getting an Iranian woman a visa to come to the United States. He writes: We need to get her clearance even only temporary to be with her granddaughter. Abedin forwarded the request to Lauren Jiloty, asking her Can U help Monday with consular affairs? Jiloty replies, Sure. Will look into it. Ringel donated between $10,000 and $25,000 to the Clinton Foundation. In May, Band, working through Abedin, attempts to help Canadian concert promoter and Foundation donor Michael Cohl with the processing of a visa. Abedin passes the request to Monica Hanley, Clintons confidential assistant.
The emails show that the Clinton Foundation operative Band was involved in personnel matters at the Clinton State Department. In a May 2009 email exchange between Band and Abedin, a career post to East Timor for someone is discussed. Abedin explains to Band that Cheryl Mills, Hillary Clintons then-chief of staff, was working on the situation under the radar.
In August 2009, Band tells Abedin of someone who wants to be the ambassador to Barbados. Abedin replies: I know, hes emailed a few times. But she wants to give to someone else.
The emails also show that Abedin received advice from her mother, Saleha Abedin (a controversial Islamist activist), on whom the Obama administration should appoint as the US Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. She notes that she has obtained a recommendation from Hassan (NFI), and that shed reached out to Ishanoglu. This is presumably Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, a Turkish academic and the former Secretary-General of the OIC. Ihsanoglu famously called on the West to enact anti-Islamic blasphemy laws.
On Monday, June 8, Clinton emails her aide Lona Valmoro and Abedin asking to attend a cabinet meeting: I heard on the radio that there is a Cabinet mtg this am. Is there? Can I go? If not, who are you sending? Valmoro answers: It is actually not a full cabinet meeting today those agencies that received recovery money were invited to attend/participate. We were welcome to send a representative though, not sure if we have anyone going.
Other emails found in Abedins unsecure email account appear to show additional instances of the Clinton State Departments lax approach to protecting national security.
On July 4, 2009, U.S. Ambassador to Kenya Jonathan Scott Gration sent Abedin an email that the State Department has classified in part and redacted because the information deals with foreign governments and national defense or foreign policy. Abedin forwarded Grations email to her personal, unsecure email account. In his email, Gration related his meeting with Libyan president Muammar Qadafi, saying: I conveyed our appreciation for Libyas role to improve relations between Chad and Sudan Leader al-Qadafi promised to continue his nations close collaboration with the United States and is eager to meet you and President Obama. Gration would later be fired for, among other things, using personal email accounts to send government information.
A document titled HRC PRIVATE LINE BLOCK gives the planned whereabouts for President Obama for Thursday, June 4, 2009: Attend POTUS Foreign Policy Speech at Cairo University. In another example of lax concern for security, Valmoro forwarded Clintons detailed daily schedule for July 15, 2009, to officers of the Clinton Foundation, including Doug Band and Justin Cooper. Again, on July 26 Valmoro forwarded Hillarys detailed, sensitive daily schedule to numerous Clinton Foundation officials.
In other examples of lax concern for security, on June 11, there is a reference to testing the Federal preparedness and response for an international terrorist threat to the United States. [Principal-Level Exercise] will be a scenario-driven discussion for Cabinet Secretaries, agency Directors and Administrators, senior officials in the Executive Office of the President, or their approved representatives. A document in Abedins unsecure email account dated May 2009 is titled The Secretarys Phone Call with Chinese Foreign Minister Yang is marked sensitive but unclassified and fully redacted, as is a document titled The Secretarys Phone Call with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov.
Im not sure how much more evidence of pay for play, classified information mishandling, and influence peddling from Clintons email server one would need to show a serious criminal investigation is required, said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

So that’s not collusion to get something of value. Just Donald Trump Jr taking a 20 minute meeting with Russian lawyer is collusion. Not Hillary Clinton getting millions of dollars of corruption money.
Trump needs to fire Sessions, and hire the JW people.
I copied the link and sent it viral to my email list and asked them to do the same.
It’s up to us to spread the truth viral!
Sick of hearing about the criminal escapades of the clintons and Obamas people yet THERE ARE NO INVESTIGATIONS!
Huma Abedin SHOULD be in PRISON!!!
Wolf Blitzer and Chris Cuomo, and the rest of the Clinton News Network, will be running wall-to-wall with this.
Call me a ‘Pollyanna’ but I still hold out hope that Trump will corral these criminals and they will do time.
You mean they’re corrupt?
Now, there’s an absolutely brilliant idea. The JW people, all of them, have the proper testicular fortitude to handle the Clintons, Obamas and all of their co-conspirators
