    New York City Police Commissioner Bill Bratton formally announced his resignation on Tuesday, marking the end of a second term as the NYPD’s top cop. He will work at Teneo, a Clinton-tied firm. He will head a new division of the consulting company founded by Declan Kelly, a former State Department special envoy, and Doug Band, once Bill Clinton’s personal assistant. The company, launched in 2011, served as an adviser to the Clinton Global Initiative, and ex-President Clinton served for a short time on the Teneo advisory board. Among Teneo’s past employees is Huma Abedin, who pulled in $15,000 a...
  • New emails show Huma scheming for Hillary

    08/09/2016 12:02:39 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 33 replies
    Another 296 pages of Hillary Clinton’s emails were released Tuesday — exposing key Clinton aides doing favors for billionaires and, on one occasion, leaving the then-secretary of state’s daily schedule in an unlocked hotel room. The documents were released by Judicial Watch, which is suing to recover Clinton’s emails under Freedom of Information Act laws. In an April 2009 email to Clinton’s State Department aides Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills, President Clinton’s former body man, Doug Band, the founder of corporate consultant Teneo, urgently asked them to set up a meeting with an ambassador for a major donor to the...

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange recently told the press that the information contained within these emails would be enough to indict Clinton if the government was so inclined. ***CANNOT VOUCH FOR SECURITY OF THE LINK*** Here is the link to the emails for your own perusal.

Can I ask him to start?” she wrote in an Aug. 28, 2009 email to her chief of staff, Cheryl Mills.... ...But while serving as Clinton’s special envoy, reaching out to global corporations for those investments, he was also working for two of them as a private consultant — earning about $2.4 million from Dow...

    A federal judge on Wednesday ordered the State Department to produce the e-mail records of Hillary Clinton’s scheduler during her tenure as secretary of state, expanding an investigation being pursued by conservative nonprofit Citizens United into the overlap between Clinton’s official travel and her meetings with foreign Clinton Foundation donors. Citizens United is slated to receive all e-mails sent to and from Lona Valmoro, Clinton’s State Department scheduler, in the two-week periods before each of 14 international trips Clinton took during her four years in office. David Bossie, president of Citizens United, hopes to confirm suspicions that Clinton maintained an...

    ... Cooper obviously had the authority, access, and ability to access and shut down the server used by State Department employees, diplomats, and ambassadors to communicate with the Secretary of State. And apparently the server was also used by Bill Clinton’s aides for his business, as we reported last September. The Clintons are very interested in Cooper’s legal issues. Columnist Monica Crowley reported that the Clintons are now paying Cooper’s legal bills. That’s interesting, isn’t it? The “all in the family” approach of the Clintons to the operation of the private server makes a mockery of security. Not only could...

The aide, Justin Cooper, served the Clinton Foundation while working for a private consulting firm, Teneo Holdings and Decision Sciences Corp., that served foreign dictators, Morris told "The Steve Malzberg Show" in an interview. "He has no security clearance — and he had access to every single email either sent by or received by the secretary of state of the United States for four years," Morris...

Grassley, the Iowa Republican who is chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, that the firm had undue influence on Hillary Rodham Clinton's diplomatic work. In a letter to the committee in October, Declan Kelly, the Irish-born chief executive of the firm, Teneo, responded to questions about an agreement that permitted Huma Abedin, one of Mrs. Clinton's closest aides and the vice chairwoman of her campaign, to receive income both from her position at the State Department and as...

    The Benghazi committee has denied accusations of partisanship, even as both parties jockey ahead of Clinton's upcoming appearance before the panel. A partisan feud broke out during Friday's closed-door testimony by a top Hillary Clinton adviser, as Democrats blasted the GOP-led Benghazi panel for summoning the witness in the first place while conservative activists circulated emails they said showed the aide's testimony was relevant. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the top Democrat on the panel, slammed the panel for bringing in Huma Abedin, Clinton's former deputy chief of staff at State, for questioning. His comments echoed a Thursday night statement from...

There is no relationship between donations to the Clinton Foundation and actions taken by the Secretary of State during her tenure there. Period. Full stop. End of discussion. Perish the thought.

    Few in the odd coalition of Left and Right pushing for reauthorization of the 81-year-old Export-Import Bank have been louder than Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. “It’s wrong that candidates for president, who really should know better, are jumping on this bandwagon,” she said at a May 22 campaign stop in New Hampshire. “It’s wrong, it’s embarrassing. . . . The idea that we would remove this relatively small but vital source of funding for our businesses to compete is absolutely backwards.” Clinton’s defense of Ex-Im may be motivated by more than mere concern for American businesses.

However, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan declined — for now — to address claims from Judicial Watch that Clinton's use of the private account and server led State Department officials to commit a fraud on the court by certifying they had turned over all responsive records.

One positive thing you can say for sure about the secretary is that she takes care of her friends. Apparently, former Rep.

Turns out she exclusively used a private email account while personally prohibiting other State Department employees from doing the same. One other State Department official evidently violated this policy: Mrs. Clinton‘s deputy chief of staff, Huma Abedin. Her emails are of particular interest insofar as Ms. Abedin has extensive ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. That’s the Islamist organization whose self-declared mission is “destroying Western civilization from within.”
