Ex-Ambassador Joseph Wilson’s ‘Embarrassing’ Emails To Hillary
The Daily Caller ^ | 10-1-15

Posted on 10/03/2015 3:45:45 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

Former U.S. Ambassador Joseph Wilson caused “embarrassment” to a company he consulted for by lobbying then-Sec. of State Hillary Clinton in an email he sent through her longtime friend and ally, Sidney Blumenthal, according to court documents obtained by The Daily Caller.

The company, Symbion Power, made the claim in response to a lawsuit filed in New Mexico last week by Wilson, who served as ambassador to Gabon and São Tomé and Príncipe during the Bill Clinton administration.

Wilson claims that Symbion and its co-founders, Paul Hinks and Lord Richard Westbury, engaged in fraud, breach of contract and civil conspiracy by failing to pay him more than $280,000 in consulting fees and by misrepresenting itself as an American company.

The Clintons, the Obamas and many more Dems have sold this nation out to satisfy their own greedy financial goals. Hell, the Clintons allowed the Russians to gain control of a uranium mine in Wyoming. These actions are treasonous and all who engaged in these actions should be tried for treason. There is no excuse for not following through on this plus why have we not heard about “fast and furious” lately. In my opinion Holder is an accomplice in the murder of the border patrol officer.

The GOP is just as involved in building up China by selling off American companies. It is democrats and Republicans both.

China now exports more than America.

And that continues to grow. We need to build up our own country once again.

Bring back American jobs.

I don’t really understand who or why anyone is embarrassed.
Unless the writer is referring to Republicans. After all they are the ones we elected to clean up this mess. In 1992, 2010 and 2014.

OK, now I get it. It is us, the suckers that voted for them that should be embarrassed.

Traditional voter response: "We should throw all the bums out! Except my guy, of course. He's not so bad. I'd certainly vote to re-elect my guy. But the rest of the bums -- they should all be thrown out!!"

The voters got us into this mess (I'm in MA, so if your name is Kennedy, we will elect you).

And with the immigration situation, and with Common Core, the quality of the voter base is certainly not rising.

In 2016, my bums will be Senator Mark Nancyboy Kirk and Congressman Adam (don't get between him and a TV camera if you value your life and health) Kinzinger. I have not voted for either of these clowns yet and I am not about to start now. Kinzinger was created by Boehner, Cantor and McCarthy.

Neither of my bums has three brain cells to rub together. That's viewing it favorably from their perspective. If either or both have three brain cells to rub together, then it is worse and they are just monsters with no excuse for their respective behavior.

I’m slightly confused. Is this Joe Wilson aka “Mr. Valerie Plame”? If he is, I’d want him included when the pack of them are tried, convicted and incarcerated. That includes Richard Armitage, as well.....for what they did to Scooter Libby. Can the prosecutor be hung, too? He KNOWINGLY railroaded Libby and left Armitage slide!

Symbion levels other accusations against Wilson, portraying him as an egomaniac who ceased working for the company because of a dispute over an equity stake.

The company accused Wilson of abusing the company’s policy for booking air travel and accommodations. He also allegedly berated Symbion employees at the company’s Washington D.C. office. And in another alleged unprofessional act, Wilson had lunch in the company’s conference room one day with three female staffers and consumed an entire bottle of wine.

The company also faults Wilson for introducing Hinks to Robert Cabelly, a shady American diplomat with experience in Africa. Wilson convinced Hinks to hire Cabelly in June 2009 for $15,000 per month in order to drum up business in Angola. But Symbion claims that Wilson purposely avoided telling the company that Cabelly was under indictment for violating U.S. sanctions against Sudan. Cabelly was formally indicted in Oct. 2009.

Symbion claims that Wilson’s relationship with the company went south after he began asking for an equity stake. The diplomat initially asked for a 5 percent share, but soon began seeking control of one-fifth of the company. Hinks rebuffed the request, which rankled Wilson. Through email, Wilson allegedly told Hinks that he planned to quit working for Symbion. And by April 2013, Symbion asserts that Wilson had ceased all work on behalf of Symbion. During a meeting in Washington D.C. later that month, Hinks claimed that Wilson told him “you do not want to get into a fight with me,” and that “I can destroy Symbion.”
