Why would the Dept Of Justice block an investigation into this?

New Abedin Emails Reveal Hillary Clinton State Department Gave Special Access to Top Clinton Foundation Donors

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released 725 pages of new State Department documents, including previously unreleased email exchanges in which former Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin provided influential Clinton Foundation donors special, expedited access to the secretary of state. In many instances, the preferential treatment provided to donors was at the specific request of Clinton Foundation executive Douglas Band.

The new documents included 20 Hillary Clinton email exchanges not previously turned over to the State Department, bringing the known total to date to 191 of new Clinton emails (not part of the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton turned over to the State Department). These records further appear to contradict statements by Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails were turned over to the State Department.

The Abedin emails reveal that the longtime Clinton aide apparently served as a conduit between Clinton Foundation donors and Hillary Clinton while Clinton served as secretary of state. In more than a dozen email exchanges, Abedin provided expedited, direct access to Clinton for donors who had contributed from $25,000 to $10 million to the Clinton Foundation. In many instances, Clinton Foundation top executive Doug Band, who worked with the Foundation throughout Hillary Clinton’s tenure at State, coordinated closely with Abedin. In Abedin’s June deposition to Judicial Watch, she conceded that part of her job at the State Department was taking care of “Clinton family matters.”

This is not only a direct violation of the agreement she signed with the President, but it comes pretty dang close to the sort of conflict of interest that could be considered criminal.  A Secretary of State offering access to her position in the Federal Government in exchange for donations to the Clinton Foundations?

Seems worthy of an investigation, if not a special prosecutor.

She may actually be the first president met with articles of impeachment upon her inauguration.

btw, this goes nowhere. justice could say they'll comply with the judge's order, and then tell the judge that it will take them until at least 2020 to go through them all.

and a special "independent" prosecutor?

don't make me laugh. the fix has been in since the beginning on this whole deal, and no one in this administration has any intention of complying with any judge's order.

KD, White House SOLD Sign goes up on first day of Hillary Occupation said...

CS, this was a great find, thank you and CHT for bringing it to this blog for those that think critically to read it and get a better understanding of O'Hillary.

Remember she said she left the white house "Dead Broke" and now her personal wealth is over $350 million. That is a feat that she should proclaim to the world how she did it.

Instead we are always getting drip drip drip of damaging information about her and the scum she hangs out with and how they launder money.

She is the best the Progre$$ives can buy.

So after taking a five day rest, Hillary opens a pickle jar on Jimmy Kimmel and we're supposed to conclude can that there is no health issue.

Freaking incredible.
