The new Hillary Clinton emails are revealing a lot, stating that a high-level Clinton Foundation official asked the State Department aides for favors.
The favors were meant for two individuals. One of them is a controversial multi-million dollar Clinton Foundation donor, and the other is an unnamed associate. According to the Daily Caller, the new email exchanges on April 2009 will encourage people to raise more questions about conflicts of interest between the former secretary of state and her family charity.
The revelations state that controversial Clinton Foundation official Doug Band asked favors in a form of a job for an associate. In the email, Band told the Democratic nominee’s former aides at the State Department that it is essential to take care of the unnamed associate.
In response, Band was reassured by Clinton aide Huma Abedin that “Personnel has been sending him options.” Band and Bill Clinton were the founders of Teneo Strategy. Band is also a top official of the Clinton Foundation, including its Clinton Global Initiative.
The unnamed associate sent an email to Band with the subject line: “A favor.”
Judicial Watch revealed another mail, in which Band asks Abedin and Mills for help in contacting Gilbert Chagoury to discuss events in Lebanon. Chagoury is a controversial Clinton Foundation donor, a Lebanese-Nigerian billionaire who had given the organization at least $1 million as donation. In this email, Band directly asked the Clinton aides to connect Chagoury to the State Department’s influential person in Lebanon.
Band stated in the mail that Chagoury is the most important guy for them in Lebanon. He urged Abedin to call Ambassador Jeffrey Feltman to connect him to Chagoury.
As for the mystery man, Band said in the new Hillary Clinton emails. “Can someone pls call [redacted]? He calls me every day and we owe him some attention.”
Abedin responded by stating that the mystery man is in Clinton’s “top priority list for an ambassadorship,” but had been newly rejected by the White House.
