SEKULOW: We Have Uncovered Thousands of Docs Showing Pay-to-Play Between Hillary State Department and Clinton Foundation
An attorney for Trump, Jay Sekulow announced Wednesday the American Center for Law and Justice uncovered thousands of documents showing Clinton Foundation pay-to-play with Hillary’s State Department through a FOIA lawsuit.
We have uncovered a ‘favor factory’ the ACLJ reported on Wednesday.
There was no firewall between the State Department and the Clinton Foundation as Hillary previously claimed to the public.
Via the ACLJ:
As part of our Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Deep State Department, we have been informed that the State Department has located – and will be forced to turn over to the ACLJ – literally thousands of documents to and about the Clinton Foundation, its subsidiaries, and its senior operatives during the duration of Hillary Clinton’s time as Secretary of State.
The shear volume alone – some 30,000 emails – debunks the specious assertion that there was any kind of firewall whatsoever between Clinton’s State Department and the Clinton Foundation.
These documents, only now being uncovered through our FOIA request and subsequent litigation, show extensive communications exchanged between Clinton or her senior staff at State Department and Doug Band – a senior aid at the Clinton Foundation and creatorof the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI).
In recent court filings, the State Department has revealed that more than 8,700 documents exist in Cheryl Mills’ and/or Huma Abedin’s files which contain the single search term, “Doug Band.” It is possible, and indeed likely, that each document consists of several pages placing the number closer to 18,000 pages or more.
The ACLJ has also learned through our litigation that another 22,000 documents exist in Cheryl Mills’ and Huma Abedin’s files (not including attachments) mentioning or referring to the Clinton Foundation or a related term referencing the foundation.
Newly released documents show Doug Band served as a liaison for Clinton Foundation donors looking for favors and official acts from the Clinton-run State Department, the ACLJ reported.
Doug Band was the ‘go-to’ guy for Clinton Foundation donors. If they needed anything from Hillary Clinton, they would email Doug Band and within minutes he would forward the message to Huma Abedin and or Cheryl Mills to help expedite the favor.
An email dated December 6, 2010 (tucked away at the very end of the State Department’s most recent production) reveals that Secretary Clinton, upon receiving information that we now know to be classified from a State Department employee, forwarded the classified information via her private email account ([email protected]) on to various individuals outside the State Department including senior associates at the Clinton Foundation – Justin Cooper and Doug Band. She writes in her email to “print for Bill.”
Of course most of the information contained in the email has been redacted (and won’t be unclassified until 2025) but it appears that the classified communications relate to the investigation into Nobel prize winner Muhammad Yunus’s alleged diversion of foreign aid from the non-profit Bank he chaired (a bank specifically fashioned to provide loans to the poorest of people on easy terms). It is of no surprise – given what we know about the former Secretary’s abuse of her office to grant favors to Foundation donors and supporters – that Yunus was also a donor to the Clinton Foundation.
The ACLJ stated they will be receiving Clinton documents at a pace of approximately 300-600 pages per month.
Jay Sekulow sounded off on Twitter. “You need to read this to believe it.”
The @ACLJ just uncovered a stunning revelation about the extent to which the #Clinton State Department colluded with the #ClintonFoundation. You need to read this to believe it. https://t.co/DpIjoqgS74
