New emails show the ties between the US State Dept under Clinton and the Clinton Foundation:

Not to worry...

"If confirmed as Secretary of State, I will not participate personally and substantially in any particular matter that has a direct and predictable effect upon this foundation, unless I first obtain a written waiver or qualify for a regulatory exemption," Clinton wrote in a 2009 letter to the State Department's legal adviser and designated agency ethics official.

The FBI (DOJ?) will not find any precedent to show that a female SOS, running for POTUS, has ever been convicted of violating that oath.

An accidentally introspective quip?

It's the Trump bots who are always popping into threads about Trump and going "no, you can't talk about it! Look over here! Clinton! Look at Clinton! Do not think about that bad thing Trump just did!", at least on this site...

Of course it does.

Name one other reason to have a private server. THAT was the reason precisely.

There's going to be a lot of people surprised by the extent and depth of involvement between Hillary (before and during her SofS stint), Bill, their shady business friends, the Clinton Foundation, the Clinton Global Initiative, corrupt dictators in Russia, Africa, South America, & Haiti ... assuming knowledge of those activities ever manage to make it into the mainstream.

So what if Hillary was selling favors from the State Department. It's not like she would continue to profit off her political fame if she became president. She would never do something like sell political favors this time around the way she did when Bill was president.

Besides if you take a line out of context from a Trump speech spin it, act faux outraged over it, and manipulate it just right you can claime Trump wanted to hire a hit man to take out Clinton.

There is one thing Hillary has proven over the years. Her honesty and integrity are absolutes. She makes Honest Abe look like a gossip queen.

The vast right wing conspiracy forced Clinton to take donations to her foundation and then have her foundation make special requests to the State Department on behalf of those donars.

You have some valid points here. After all they were "Dead Broke" when they left the White House.

The following paragraph from the CNN story is very interesting:

"Early this year as the investigation into Clinton's private email server was in full swing, several FBI field offices approached the Justice Department asking to open a case regarding the relationship between the State Department and the Clinton Foundation, according to a law enforcement official. At the time, DOJ declined because it had looked into allegations surrounding the Clinton Foundation around a year earlier and found there wasn't sufficient evidence to open a case."

So the DOJ declined to investigate Clinton. I'm shocked I tell you, SHOCKED!!!!!

I would say that this news should make even the left-wing nutjobs not vote for Hillary, except one of the prerequisites to being a left-wing nutjob is believing the ends justify the means.

Heck, Hillary could shoot someone dead at one of her rallies (if someone spent a LOT of time teaching her how to use a firearm, of course) and her left-wing supporters would spin that into another reason to vote for her.

It depends on what the meaning of the word 'links' is

400 replies to the thread on Trump making assaination jokes. 19 replies to Clinton giving access to rich people who donate to her charity. Welcome to the era of celebrity politics. Meanwhile even WAPO is point out CLintons problems (for no one to care about).

a wealthy Ni*ger*ian businessman of Lebanese descent who has given the Clinton Foundation $1 million to $5 million in donations, according to disclosure reports.

We need Gilbert Chagoury to speak to the substance person re Lebanon,” Band wrote in the email addressed to Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills,

Abedin responded with the name of the recent U.S. ambassador to Lebanon, Jeffrey Feltman, who was serving as acting assistant secretary of state for near eastern affairs. She added: “I’ll talk to Jeff.”

Would a Nigerian who hadnt donated millions to the Clintons have been able to get directly connected to the Secretary of States assistant to "share his insights on the upcoming Lebanese election with the right person at the Department of State for whom this information might be helpful?"

There are two issues here.

1. Clinton benefiting financially...personally...from her position as SoS.

2. That thing liberals like to talk about...as in, being against...money in politics.

I guess those despicable actions are okay if a liberal does them...but not okay if a conservative does them. Hypocrisy runs rampant on the left.

Sure, he's a New York federal prosecutor - why do you ask?
