• Disclosure: How Clinton Sought Money From Company in Bed With Iran

    The State Department released thousands of pages of Hillary Clinton’s emails Monday night.

    Bill Clinton’s former aide sent emails in August 2012 to Hillary’s Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills asking the State Department for permission for the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) to accept money from the government-owned Malaysian oil company Petronas, a company doing business with Iran.

    Petronas, a government-owned Malaysian oil company, would like to send its CEO Shamsul Azhar bin Abbas to CGI as a paying member, Amitabh Desai wrote to Cheryl Mills.

    “For years they were shipping oil to Iran. Would the CEO attending CGI as a paying member be concern for USG?”

    no evidence  has yet to be revealed whether Abbas ended up giving CGI money, Mills did not respond yes or no.

    The new insights are among a batch of more than 7,000 pages of emails the State Department put online in compliance with a judge’s order to make monthly releases in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

    The order followed the revelation in March that Clinton exclusively used a private email account and server during her four years as secretary of state, jeopardizing earlier responses to FOIA requests and triggering Republican claims that she endangered national security by allowing sensitive messages to be stored on an unofficial system.

    Clinton’s struggle with the drip, drip, drip email scandal is sinking her poll numbers.
