We’ve reached the “shock & awe” phase of Clinton corruption, when the evidence comes out so fast it’s almost impossible to focus on any one thing. First off, remember when Hillary said she turned over all work related emails? Everybody knew that was a lie, and it was. The same FBI that just let her off the hook keeps being reminded why they shouldn’t have:
The FBI’s year-long investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server uncovered 14,900 emails and documents from her time as secretary of state that had not been disclosed by her attorneys, and a federal judge on Monday pressed the State Department to begin releasing emails sooner than mid-October as it planned.
Justice Department lawyers said last week that the State Department would review and turn over Clinton’s work-related emails to a conservative legal group. The records are among “tens of thousands” of documents found by the FBI in its probe and turned over to the State Department, Justice Department attorney Lisa Ann Olson said Monday in court.
The 14,900 Clinton documents are nearly 50 percent more than the roughly 30,000 emails that Clinton’s lawyers deemed work-related and returned to the department in December 2014.
A bunch of the deleted emails must be work related, unless we’re to believe that all 14,900 are all about yoga and wedding plans.
Shock & awe phase II: Not long ago, Clinton said this:
And again, Hillary said it, which means it’s not true:
Call logs from the office of Cheryl Mills, Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff at the State Department, show Mills had frequent contact with top executives at the Clinton Foundation.
The logs, which were obtained by Citizens United through the Freedom of Information Act, indicate the foundation’s chief operating officer, Laura Graham, called Mills often to discuss State Department business.
Mills received regular calls from Douglas Band, a former Clinton Foundation employee who had, by 2012, decamped to start his own consulting firm. That company, Teneo Strategies, employed fellow Clinton aide Huma Abedin at the time that many of his messages appear in the logs.
In one message from Aug. 2011, Graham referred to “our boss,” but did not specify to whom she was referring.
Pay-to-play was the Clinton business model, and everybody knew it:
Joyce Aboussie, who has donated up to $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation, emailed longtime Clinton confidante Huma Abedin to ask if a company for which she worked as a consultant, Peabody Energy, could have a private audience with Clinton, according to emails made public Monday.
“Huma, I need your help now to intervene please,” Aboussie wrote. “We need this meeting with Secretary Clinton.”
“It should go without saying that the Peabody folks came to Dick and I because of our relationships with the Clintons,” Aboussie wrote.
Abedin replied that Clinton’s schedule in the first six months of her tenure had been “insane.”
“[W]e are working on it and I hope we can make something work,” Abedin wrote.
Aboussie has bundled more than $100,000 in donations to Clinton’s presidential campaign.
“It should go without saying” sums up how the Clintons operate, and the fact that Aboussie said it might get her scrubbed from the Clintons’ Christmas card list.
Check out what steps are being taken to remove any appearances of impropriety:
The official name of the group will also be changed from “the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation” to the “Clinton Foundation.” Additionally, many of the organization’s international programs will be transitioned to management by outside groups, he said.
And if that’s not enough to convince America they’re not doing anything untoward, Hillary Clinton will legally change her name to “Eileen Forthright.”
Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Hillary laughed off the email and foundation stories, and confirmed she’s in good health after being asked to open a jar of pickles:
After Kimmel asked whether there was any truth to the rumors most recently raised by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the Democratic nominee for president extended her wrist and told the late night host to take her pulse “to make sure I’m alive.”
Kimmel obliged, taking Clinton’s pulse with his thumb and joking: “Oh my God, there’s nothing there!”
He then dared the former secretary of state to open a jar of pickles to show her strength, which she did while pretending to exert great energy.
Later in the interview, Kimmel, acknowledging the continued fallout from the Democratic nominee’s use of a private email server, suggested that Clinton maybe consider “FaceTime” as an alternative to email.
Here’s how Kimmel got Hillary to activate her super-human strength:
“There’s a check from the Saudis in there. GO!”
