Disturbing New Batch of Hillary Clinton Emails Uncovered

Judicial Watch today released 296 pages of State Department records, of which 44 email exchanges were not previously turned over to the State Department, bringing the known total to date to 171 of new Clinton emails (not part of the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton turned over to the State Department).  

More important, 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 new documents reveal that in April 2009 controversial Clinton Foundation official Doug Band pushed for a job for an associate. In the email Band tells Hillary Clinton’s former aides at the State Department Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin that it is “important to take care of [Redacted]. Band is reassured by Abedin that “Personnel has been sending him options.” Band was co-founder of Teneo Strategy with Bill Clinton and a top official of the Clinton Foundation, including its Clinton Global Initiative.

Included in the new document production is a 2009 email in which Band directs Abedin and Mills to put Lebanese-Nigerian billionaire and Clinton Foundation donor Gilbert Chagoury in touch with the State Department’s “substance person” on Lebanon.  Band notes that Chagoury is “key guy there [Lebanon] and to us,” and insists that Abedin call Ambassador Jeffrey Feltman to connect him to Chagoury. 

Chagoury is a close friend of former President Bill Clinton and a top donor to the Clinton Foundation. He has appeared near the top of the Foundation’s donor list as a $1 million to $5 million contributor, according to foundation documents. He also pledged $1 billion to the Clinton Global Initiative.  According to a 2010 investigation by PBS Frontline, Chagoury was convicted in 2000 in Switzerland for laundering money from Nigeria, but agreed to a plea deal and repaid $66 million to the Nigerian government.

Clinton’s top aides’ favors for and interactions with the Clinton Foundation seem in violation of the ethics agreements that Hillary Clinton agreed to in order to be appointed and confirmed as secretary of state.  For example, Secretary of State-designate Hillary Clinton on Jan. 5, 2009, in a letter to State Department Designated Agency Ethics Official James H. Thessin:

“For the duration of my appointment as Secretary if I am confirmed, I will not participate personally and substantially in any particular matter involving specific parties in which The William J. Clinton Foundation (or the Clinton Global Initiative) is a party or represents a party ...”

As preparation for Hillary’s upcoming visit to Asia, Stephen Roach, chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia, on Feb. 11, 2009, sends Hillary a copy of his upcoming testimony before Congress in which he would condemn any U.S. efforts to criticize Chinese monetary policy or enact trade barriers. Several days later, Hillary asked Abedin about Roach possibly “connecting” with her while she was in Beijing: “I forwarded you my email to him about connecting in Beijing. Can he come to the embassy or other event?” Morgan Stanley is a long-time financial supporter of the Clintons.

The emails also reveal that Abedin left then-Secretary Clinton’s daily schedule, a presumably sensitive document, on a bed in an unlocked hotel room.  An email on April 18, 2009, during a conference in Trinidad and Tobago, from aide Melissa J. Lan to Huma Abedin asks for the secretary’s “day book binders.” Abedin replies: “Yes. It’s on the bed in my room. U can take it. My door is open. I’m in the lobby. Thx.” Moreover, the emails show the annoyance of another Clinton aide that the schedule was sent to an authorized State Department email address and not to an unsecured non-state.gov account.

The emails reveal that Clinton campaign adviser and pollster Mark Penn advised Clinton on NATO and piracy.  Another major Clinton fundraiser, Lana Moresky, also pushed Clinton to hire someone for a position at State.  Clinton directed Abedin to follow up and “help” the applicant and told Abedin to “let me know” about the job issue.

The emails show that Hillary Clinton relied on someone named “Justin” (presumably Justin Cooper, a Bill Clinton and Clinton Foundation employee), to set up her cell phone voicemail, rather than having State Department personnel handle it. This was in a Feb. 11, 2009, email from Clinton aide Lauren Jiloty to Clinton, using Clinton’s hdr22@clintonmail.com address.

This is the ninth set of records produced for Judicial Watch by the State Department from the non-state.gov email accounts of Huma Abedin.

The documents were produced under a court order in a May 5, 2015, Freedom of Information (FOIA) lawsuit against the State Department (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00684)) requiring the agency to produce “all emails of official State Department business received or sent by former Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin from January 1, 2009 through February 1, 2013, using a ‘non-state’.gov email address.”

“No wonder Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin hid emails from the American people, the courts and Congress,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.  “They show the Clinton Foundation, Clinton donors, and operatives worked with Hillary Clinton in potential violation of the law.”

In June, Judicial Watch uncovered two batches (here and here) of new Clinton email records through court-ordered discovery.

Twice in May, Judicial Watch uncovered new Clinton emails, including emails that show Clinton knew about the security risk of her BlackBerry (see here and here).

Recently, Judicial Watch released other State Department emails (one batch of 103 pages, the second of 138 pages), with newly discovered Clinton emails also going back as far as January 2009.

In March, Judicial Watch released Clinton State Department emails dating from February 2009 that also call into question her statements about her emails. Those emails contained more evidence of the battle between security officials in the State Department, National Security Administration, Clinton and her staff over attempts to obtain secure BlackBerrys.

Hillary Clinton has repeatedly stated that she believes that the 55,000 pages of documents she turned over to the State Department in December 2014 included all of her work-related emails.  In response to a court order in other Judicial Watch litigation, she declared under penalty of perjury that she had “directed that all my emails on clintonemail.com in my custody that were or are potentially federal records be provided to the Department of State, and on information and belief, this has been done.”  This new email find is also at odds with her official campaign statement suggesting all “work or potentially work-related emails” were provided to the State Department.

Corrupt, lying Hillary insisted on having a private server in her home basement to keep the " shady business" of the Clinton Foundation secret !!! Anyone with just a little intelligence can see that this was a "money laundering" operation!!! The biased, dishonest media is not reporting on this scandal because they are as corrupt as Hillary and the Democratic party!!! The media has failed the people of America!!! The truth is been kept hidden by the special interest!!! We the PEOPLE can and must put an end to this corrupt, rigged system!!! Vote Trump/Pence on Nov8!!!

6 Anti-Clinton Activists Have Been Murdered or Died in Mysterious Circumstances Over the Last Month: Various insiders who threaten the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign were all found murdered in a short space of time, giving rise to theories that elements within the DNC or Clinton camp may be responsible for their deaths. The unsettling events have given way to a host of Internet conspiracy theories, with denizens of Reddit and social media platforms trying to connect the deaths. Here are the six anti-Clinton activists that have been murdered or died in mysterious circumstances over the last month: 1. Molly Macauley: The world-renowned “space economist” Molly Macauly was brutally murdered while walking her two dogs around the corner from her Baltimore home. The assailant attacked Macauley and left her for dead in upscale Roland Park — it was the first murder there since 1998. Police say they have no suspects and no leads, though Twitter is convinced that authorities downplayed the murder because it happened during the height of the #BlackLivesMatter-related unrest. 2. John Ashe: The former President of the UN General Assembly was awaiting trial on bribery charges when he turned up dead in June, apparently having crushed his own windpipe while lifting weights in his home. According to theories floating around on the web, Ashe was “scheduled to testify against the Clinton family” when he met his untimely end. There isn’t much independent confirmation for his testimony appointment, but Ashe was part of a scheme to funnel foreign money to the Democratic National Committee during the Clinton years. 3. Victor Thorne: Thorne was, himself, a conspiracy theorist (and a Holocaust denier), but his suicide from a self-inflicted gunshot wound drew attention from political media because his latest project – a forthcoming book – was reportedly a treasure trove of Hillary Clinton opposition research. 4. Seth Rich: The DNC staffer was attacked near DC’s up-and-coming Bloomingdale neighborhood three weeks ago. DC police say they still have no clues or leads in what they say was a random killing, likely part of a burglary attempt. But while Rich was beaten, shot and killed, he wasn’t robbed; he still had his wallet, watch and phone when police discovered his body. Reddit, which has been “investigating” Rich’s death, is convinced that Rich was pushed to pass internal email to Wikileaks, resulting in the document dump that forced Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s resignation. 5. Joe Montano: An aide to Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Tim Kaine died of an apparent heart attack in his Falls Church, Va., home in late July. Montano, who was close to Kaine and had been employed by him for several years, was working for the Democratic National Committee when he died. Eagle-eyed conspiracy theorists immediately connected his death to Rich’s, even though Montano reportedly passed away from a medical event. 6. Shawn Lucas: Lucas, the lead attorney and process server in fraud case against the DNC filed by Bernie Sanders supporters, was found dead on his bathroom floor just this past week. Lucas’s death is strange, as he was reportedly in good health, according to his girlfriend. He had just appeared in a viral video showing the moment he surprised DNC officials with the fraud allegations.

As an independent, it is remarkable to me that people are still harping on this, like FoxNews or they themselves somehow can investigate better than the FBI, which was investigated by a Republican, appointed by a Republican. The State Dept. was responsible for turning over the e-mails, not Hillary Clinton. This e-mail outlines what her aides did in communicating with clients, purely non-classified by the way. I am no Clinton fan, but legally there is something called intent to establish a crime. There is none here, therefore, there is no crime. At least 15 prior Secs. and higher used private e-mail servers. Powell did not send 100 e-mails, he testified he sent and received more than he could count. How does that equate 100? because FoxNews said so? If she directed them to turn all e-mails over and they somehow missed some aide e-mails, how does that equate to perjury? There is so much to chastise her on, but this is not it...classic wing nut tea partiers... Go Johnson!

When are the finally going to put the cuffs on her. Hopefully within the next month.

Federal Judge Sullivan had clinton and her (foundation paid for staff members) swear under oath that they turned over all government materials........... Oops it looks like somebody lied under oath!

Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, is a controversial character. But there’s no denying the emails he has picked up from inside the Democrat Party are real, and he’s willing to expose Hillary Clinton. Now, he’s announcing that Hillary Clinton and her State Department was actively arming Islamic jihadists, which includes the Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria. Clinton as repeatedly denied these claims, including during multiple statements while under oath in front of the United States Senate. WikiLeaks is about to prove Hillary Clinton deserves to be arrested: The Reagan administration officials hoped to secure the release of several U.S. hostages, and then take proceeds from the arms sales to Iran, to fund the Contras in Nicaragua. Sounds familiar? In Obama’s second term, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton authorized the shipment of American-made arms to Qatar, a country beholden to the Muslim Brotherhood, and friendly to the Libyan rebels, in an effort to topple the Libyan/Gaddafi government, and then ship those arms to Syria in order to fund Al Qaeda, and topple Assad in Syria. Clinton took the lead role in organizing the so-called “Friends of Syria” (aka Al Qaeda/ISIS) to back the CIA-led insurgency for regime change in Syria. Under oath Hillary Clinton denied she knew about the weapons shipments during public testimony in early 2013 after the Benghazi terrorist attack. In an interview with Democracy Now, Wikileaks’ Julian Assange is now stating that 1,700 emails contained in the Clinton cache directly connect Hillary to Libya to Syria, and directly to Al Qaeda and ISIS. via The Duran Here is the incredible transcript: JUAN GONZÁLEZ: Julian, I want to mention something else. In March, you launched a searchable archive for over 30,000 emails and email attachments sent to and from Hillary Clinton’s private email server while she was secretary of state. The 50,547 pages of documents span the time from June 2010 to August 2014; 7,500 of the documents were sent by Hillary Clinton herself. The emails were made available in the form of thousands of PDFs by the U.S. State Department as the result of a Freedom of Information Act request. Why did you do this, and what’s the importance, from your perspective, of being able to create a searchable base? JULIAN ASSANGE: Well, WikiLeaks has become the rebel library of Alexandria. It is the single most significant collection of information that doesn’t exist elsewhere, in a searchable, accessible, citable form, about how modern institutions actually behave. And it’s gone on to set people free from prison, where documents have been used in their court cases; hold the CIA accountable for renditions programs; feed into election cycles, which have resulted in the termination of, in some case—or contributed to the termination of governments, in some cases, taken the heads of intelligence agencies, ministers of defense and so on. So, you know, our civilizations can only be as good as our knowledge of what our civilisation is. We can’t possibly hope to reform that which we do not understand. So, those Hillary Clinton emails, they connect together with the cables that we have published of Hillary Clinton, creating a rich picture of how Hillary Clinton performs in office, but, more broadly, how the U.S. Department of State operates. So, for example, the disastrous, absolutely disastrous intervention in Libya, the destruction of the Gaddafi government, which led to the occupation of ISIS of large segments of that country, weapons flows going over to Syria, being pushed by Hillary Clinton, into jihadists within Syria, including ISIS, that’s there in those emails. There’s more than 1,700 emails in Hillary Clinton’s collection, that we have released, just about Libya alone.

25 x 25=? If you can solve this in your head, you shouldn't vote. Please people.. read.. learn.. get educated. Criticize based on critical thinking. Vote based on facts. Agree based on knowledge. Act based on wisdom. I lost sight on my one eye and is deaf due to a decision by our commander in chief. I do not blame anyone. However, I still can see and listen better than you low IQ non contributing citizens of United States of America. Please do not vote because you can. Save that time and learn some simple cognitive thinking.

How come CNN does not talk about this stuff

The same reason they didn't bother to report corrupt CA senator Leland Yee getting arrested for setting up illegal arms deals and taking bribes.

How come, indeed!

Lou........ are you kidding us? They are bought and paid for. Don't you know, CNN is a Socialist founded by Jane Fonda's now x- husband.

It is a shame that the very first female candidate for president is also the very first criminal president. It has been proven, and that America does not want to continue a third term of Obama the criminal muslim bastard child. It is possible that Hillary would appoint Obama to the Supreme Court. This email must make it to ALL INTERNETS. Please help by sending to all your contacts........ even Democrats!!!!!!!!!!!!! Director Commey, I see you folded because the Clinton's had the file on you from "Clinton File Gate"? Too bad you are a dishonest Republican?

Don't especially care about Hillary and the emails. Secretaries Rice and Powell used private servers; Bush administration lost thousands and thousands of emails. Wish she hadn't used a private server but she did. However what she did pales when compared to the insanity and lies of the Trump campaign. He just is not acceptable. I do believe he would bring an end to our democracy if elected. I am for Hillary

The blind shall lead the blind, for them there is no mercy

Barbara........ did you ever finish high school. We learned about abortion, the Constitution, being honest, and not becoming a liar. Oh, I forgot, hillary the proven criminal is your female president? Course, I will forgive you for being piss in a barrel, because you were adopted. You are in the same barrel as Hiillary, who has been sued today in Civil Court for the murders of Americans at Bengazi. Hillary will lose this one.

Please explain how a war criminal's lies & actions pale in comparison to a bunch of obvious BS from America's windbag in chief. Deeds not words should always take priority & many of her actions are indefensible, although I realize that the less one knows the details about one of the most corrupt politicians in history, the easier it must be to vote for her. I know this because in my everyday dealings with a Hillary supporter, she goes out of her way to avoid anything that might alter her pre-conditioned opinion. It's called research & you can bet most Hill bots don't do any. Last week a Hill bot used the Colin Powell example on me which is pure garbage. Not only did Powell not have a private unencrypted server in his house, he sent as total of less than 100 emails! He was the first Secretary of state to use email; basically testing the system. Try to get your little sheepish brain around this one: Hillary would love to bring Snowden in on charges of violation of the espionage act & lock him up for good. That server & the emails you don't especially care about are violations of that act. It's in the language of the law, look it up. The hypocrisy is sickening. Make no mistake about it, the Clintons are absolute monsters who have spent two & a half decades dismantling democracy & selling out the American people to all the highest bidders. It's time to clean house & expose the Democratic party for what it now is.

Anything ORIGINAL ? The boiler plate talking garble is old and predictable 1/2 way through the first sentence.

Hillary is the only one who used a private server. Please get the facts straight.

But Powell, Rice, and Bush never lied under oath about their emails.

Your such a sheep

Your belief that Trump, "would end our democracy" is dopey in my opinion.

there are 44 new emails that show the Clinton Foundation corrupt connection with the SoS Hillary. Bill and Hill have been sticking it to you for years and you just ask for more, unlivable. You will get exactly what YOU deserve.

The Clinton's need to be charged with criminal offenses they are in engaged in. The Clinton Foundation is a outright front used for an criminal enterprise with ties to the government trade bills. The Clinton's are trying to skirt around various laws of trade between foreign countries & US interest. The Clinton's are bold faced crooks out to enrich their very own pockets while having US Trade laws signed in their favor not of the US.

This i sn't surprising...she doesn't know the meaning of the word TRUTH...she's a habitual liar...she's told so many lies shoe doesn't know what the truth is anymore...this is a sad affair...because she continues to lie to the American people and the mainstream media are helpinh her by NOT reporting on any of this, or when they do report on it, they pass it off as inconsequential...thanks SSN for reporting this story!

Hillary Clinton, it's time you suspend your Campaign and hand the reins over to someone trustworthy to be the democrat nominee to run for President of the United States.

If she had an honorable bone in her body that is exactly what she would do. If she actually cared about the integrity of the office she so desperately wants or the people for which it serves, she would excuse herself from the race. However we all know that's not going to happen until a pair of stainless steel cuffs are around her wrists. Anyone taking odds on that happening?

Embarrassing and no integrity. If this was a military figure, they'd be meet a court martial and found guilty, fined, lost rank, and possibly receive a dishonorable discharge or prison time.

As it should be. Military people are held to standards set forth in the Uniform Code of Military Justice, which are higher than those found in public (or private) ethics codes.
