A State Department spokesperson clarified Thursday that Hillary Clintons 2009 ethics pledgeto avoid conflicts of interest with the Clinton Foundationdid not extend to Clintons top aides at the Department. Spokesperson Elizabeth Trudeau was asked about recently revealed emails that showed top members of Hillary Clintons staff doing favors for Clinton Foundation associates. Im not going to speak to specific emails, but I think you guys know State Department officials are regularly in touch with a wide variety of outside individuals and organizations including businesses, nonprofits, NGOs, think tanks, Trudeau replied. You dont feel like there was impropriety in the relationship

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Every morning they take an oath before their
statue of Arafat and swear to kill Americans
like he did, including the helpless and children.
Then they transfer US taxpayer money to
ISIS, al Qaeda, Boku Haram, Hamas, Iran
because the f&*D(C_g EXEMPT GOP do nothing, ever.
Of course they didn’t.
Thanks Comey for betraying your fellow Americans and giving us a monarchy.
James Comey, Benedict Arnold........traitors.
Interesting concept, so does the Sheriff’s oath to uphold the law apply to his deputies? Or are they exempt too?
What kind of fools do you think we are?
Ahemmmm. A pledge to avoid conflicts of interest with the Clinton Foundation would extend to communication with her Government associates(paid or volunteer) on matters involving the Clinton Foundation.
But we know Hillary and her minions can parse a binding agreement so tightly it will bleed.
state dept and federal govt have their own set of ethics that they are bound by without signing anything as well as criminal laws
Talk about weasel words!
No controlling legal authority! Where have I heard that before?
This is just more of the same, a variation on the meaning-of-’is’ schtick.
No, you're speaking English - and lying.
ETHICS: Just part of the vast right wing strategy.
Puts the “foggy” in Foggy Bottom.
Abedin and Mills were double or triple dipping on salary. How did they get away with that when most gov. agency scientists cannot even accept publishing royalties etc.?
Rules are for the little people.
(if you’re a Democrat)
No one cares if Hillary or her aides broke their pledge...we care if they broke the law.
But if "Cankles" Clinton has Huma "Hairball" Abedin sell State Dept Access to Islamofacists, Russians, CHICOMs, etc... No Harm - No Foul
Gotta hand it to the Clinton Crime Family
Second, this is twaddle. Of course Hillary's aides, direct reports under her full and total control, can no more make decisions benefiting the Clinton Foundation than can Hillary herself.
