Another batch of previously undisclosed emails involving Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state has been released, and they reveal multiple orders from the private Clinton Foundation to Hillary Clinton’s aides at the State Department.
Meanwhile, CNN reported the FBI asked the Justice Department to open a case into the Clinton Foundation earlier this year, but the department’s public integrity unit declined. One year prior to the request, the Justice Department had decided not to open a case into the foundation, claiming it lacked sufficient evidence.
One of the emails in the new cache, obtained by the Washington watchdog Judicial Watch, was an instruction for federal officials to find a job for an interested party, whose name was redacted. Another was for government officials to have someone contact a major Clinton Foundation donor personally.
“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.”
Radio host Rush Limbaugh said “there are bombshells in the emails.”
“These are the emails the FBI said they couldn’t find. … They’re just devastating,” he said.
