Skip to comments.Nine times Clinton Foundation donors got special access at State
Posted on 01/14/2016 1:42:11 PM PST by SeekAndFind
Hillary Clinton has forcefully denied reports that the FBI is expanding its investigation of her private email network to include allegations of "public corruption" involving the Clinton Foundation.
But thousands of emails made public by the State Department between May of last year and Friday indicate donors to the Clinton Foundation were often given personal meetings, generous contracts or special consideration that was seemingly not afforded to the same number of private groups that had not written checks to the charity.
The allegations that sparked the reported probe, which the FBI has yet to confirm or deny, focus simply on whether the State Department extended preferential treatment to Clinton Foundation contributors.
Below are nine examples of the type of State Department access Clinton granted to her foundation's top donors, as told by the private emails that have been made public so far by the agency.
Clinton seemingly helped a major corporate donor secure a visa from the State Department during her first year in office.
She asked one of her aides in September 2009 to check on the "status" of a visa for an executive at Blackstone Group.
Clinton wrote to the aide that Steve Schwarzman, Blackstone's CEO, had "wanted help on a visa" and that her chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, had already been approached about securing it.
The Blackstone Group donated between $250,000 and $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation, donor records show.
In the same email from September 2009, Clinton asked her aide to help another corporate donor, Honeywell, with some export regulations that were hampering Honeywell's bottom line.
The former secretary of state said David Cote, the CEO of Honeywell, had personally requested assistance, but the exact favor he asked of Clinton's team was redacted by the State Department.

This isn't Plato's Republic.
I did nothing wrong. It is my turn to be president.
Satan help me.
keep yourself sane, try to get off the tax grid, and be happy.....
being happy is what really bothers these elitist crooks....they'd rather we slither across the earth being miserable...
you know, the way our system is supposed to work is that the 3 branches of govt have some control over each other...some pushback...
and it that fails, there's the goodly press to dig out the trash....
so what happens when nobody is doing their job?....

“Cattle futures writ large.”
That is exactly what the Oil for Food Program under Clinton was.
When Marc Rich dreamed something up you knew there was an illegal angle to it.
Is that all so far? I’m shocked, I thought it would be hundreds.
