(Charles Ortel – LifeZette) Just when the Clintons thought they might open a new chapter in their lives, shining at a fundraising gala for their “foundation,” hell has broken loose and is assaulting the family from myriad directions.
On the worse-than-tawdry side, New York state and federal prosecutors are ramping up criminal cases against sex ghoul and Clinton family pal Harvey Weinstein, whose horrific practices against Hollywood starlets Hillary only belatedly and half-heartedly condemned; she profited politically for years from Weinstein’s direct and indirect financial support.
Making matters even worse, the FBI just released extensive files on its investigation into another Clinton pal and financial supporter, convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
Bad as these latest developments are, however, they pale in comparison to looming negative consequences now that the State Department has begun dribbling out more than 30,000 missing Clinton emails, together with supporting attachments.
These long-awaited and, until now, hidden documents are all but certain to make an ironclad case that the Bill, Hillary & Clinton Foundation went into high gear as a “pay-for-play corruption” and personal enrichment scheme through its various “initiatives” — while Hillary served as secretary of state and, later, as she sought the U.S. presidency for the second time.
Why the new batch of missing State Department emails matters. Bernie Sanders may not have cared about “those damn emails,” but Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), does care.
After years of dogged pursuit, Sekulow has finally forced the State Department to disclose initial portions of a “treasure trove” of long-suppressed documents. If the initial 339 pages are any clue, the complete batch of 30,000 emails should ultimately convince even the most ardent Clinton supporters that the Clinton Foundation, the Clinton Global Initiative, and other Clinton-controlled entities were actually influence-peddling vehicles — and certainly not charities.
Particularly noteworthy in the first batch of information released to ACLJ are multiple emails and email chains concerning events prior to Sept. 4, 2009, when the Clinton Global Initiative Inc. (aka New CGI) was organized as an Arkansas nonprofit corporation.
These emails show Clinton Foundation employees and directors working closely with Hillary Clinton (using at least one personal email address) and other State Department personnel to wrangle favors for Clinton Foundation donors and Clinton political allies at the 2009 Clinton Global Initiative annual meeting, August 2009 in New York.
