Judicial Watch released 448 pages of documents from the U.S. Department of State this week which show new incidents of Huma Abedin, deputy chief of staff to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, providing special State Department treatment to major donors to the Clinton Foundation and political campaigns.
The documents are heavily redacted and were sent by Hillary’s brother Tony Rodham to Abedin.
Favors for donations were rife throughout and the Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band was very involved in State Department matters. Huma’s radical mother was also involved in making recommendations.
A few examples
Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band told Abedin to “show love” to Clinton donor Andrew Liveris. He asked to have the Dow Chemical CEO and Foundation donor meet Hillary, establishing a direct line of communication.
Another email pushes for Clinton to do a favor for Karlheinz Koegel, a major Clinton Foundation contributor, who wanted Hillary Clinton to give the “honor speech” for his media prize to “Merkel.”
On November 14, 2009, Clinton donor Ben Ringel, who has appeared in numerous prior emails asking for favors, emailed Abedin to get help in getting an Iranian woman a visa to come to the United States.
A number of emails show the free flow of information and requests for favors between Clinton’s State Department and the Clinton Foundation.
Personnel matters involved Doug Band and Huma’s radical mother
The emails show that Clinton Foundation operative Band was involved in personnel matters at the Clinton State Department.
In August 2009, Band tells Abedin of someone who wants to be the ambassador to Barbados. Abedin replies: “I know, he’s emailed a few times. But she wants to give to someone else.”
The emails also show that Abedin received advice from her mother, Saleha Abedin (a controversial Islamist activist), regarding whom the Obama administration should appoint as the US Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. She notes that she has obtained a recommendation from “Hassan” (not further identified), and that she’d reached out to “Ishanoglu.” This is presumably Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, a Turkish academic and the former Secretary-General of the OIC. Ihsanoglu famously called on the West to enact anti-Islamic blasphemy laws.
There is also strong evidence in the emails of mishandling of classified documents.

When will a serious investigation of Hillary’s pay-to-play begin?
