Just because the 2016 election epically banished Hillary Clinton to private life doesn’t mean we won’t be hearing new revelations of her corruption for years to come. The latest one concerns her right-hand gal, Huma Abedin.
LawNewz reports that Judicial Watch has obtained and released another batch of Clinton documents, 1,600 in total, including 91 previously-unrevealed email conversations.
And surprise surprise, they include even more classified material disseminated through unsecure private servers.
But that may not be the worst part:
The emails also contained evidence of possible pay-to-play, including an executive who was a big donor to the Clinton Presidential Library pushing for someone else to be named Ambassador to the Dominican Republic. The request was made to Abedin through Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band. It is not clear whether or not this person received an ambassadorship because the name was redacted in the email.
Another email chain involved a request by Howard Buffett Jr. (grandson of Warren Buffett), for his father Howard Sr. to have a meeting with Clinton to discuss food security in Africa. The Buffetts, through the Susan Buffett Foundation, are known donors to the Clinton Foundation and the Clintons themselves. Bill Clinton aide Ben Schwerin forwarded the request from Buffet Jr. to Abedin, who responded, “we will take care of this.”
“Pay to play, classified information mishandling, influence peddling, cover ups – these new emails show why the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s conduct must be resumed,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton declared. “The Trump Justice Department and FBI need to reassure the American people they have finally stopped providing political protection to Hillary Clinton.”
Correct. It was an early disappointment of Donald Trump’s presidency that he did a 180 on his “lock her up” mantra of the campaign. No doubt he has many advisers telling him that it would be seen as needlessly vindictive to prosecute Clinton for her crimes, and that moving on was the magnanimous, presidential thing to do.
But as Fitton and Judicial Watch have made clear, bringing her to justice would not be about politics. It would be a necessary step to restoring the rule of law that Trump’s predecessor left in shambles, a crystal clear message that the rules apply to everybody — indeed, one of the most important things Trump could do to truly drain the swamp.
