Judicial Watch Finds New Classified Emails, Others Confirm Collusion Between State Department and Clinton Foundation

Government watchdog Judicial Watch has found a series of new emails belonging to former Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton that contain classified information. They were stored on her unsecured server. Further, they show collusion between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department. 

Out of 281 pages of new emails, ten contain classified information and "appear to be among those that Clinton had attempted to delete or had otherwise failed to disclose."

Here's the list of classified information they found:

-A document labeled “plan” was completely redacted as classified.
-A November 2012 email chain discusses the “Mid East” and includes then-Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan, Blair as “aclb” and Clinton.
-Another November 2012 email chain discusses the “Mid East” and includes Sullivan, Clinton's office manager Claire Coleman, Blair and Clinton.
-A November 2012 email chain fully redacted is titled “Mid East Peace” and includes Blair, Clinton, Obama’s -Special Envoy to the Middle East David Hale as “haledm2@state.gov,” Sullivan and Blair's Chief of Staff and former Downing Street aide Catherine Rimmer.
-In an April 2011 email exchange between Blair, Clinton and Sullivan concerning “Israel,” Blair says he “had another long session with BB [Netanyahu].”
-A May 2011 exchange concerns “Israel” and includes Blair, Clinton and Sullivan.
-A May 2011 email concerns “Palestinians” and includes Blair, Clinton and Sullivan. Blair says, “I’ve also sent you a paper.”
-A June 2011 email regarding “Israel” includes Blair, Sullivan and Clinton. Blair says, “Saw Israeli PM. Put the concept of a Q statement. He was receptive. Palestinians interested too. I know there are discussions also you guys are having. And the French initiative….”
-In a July 2011 email – with several national security redactions – written by Blair to Clinton and Sullivan, Blair says, “I saw BB….. Molcho [chief negotiator in the Israeli negotiating team with the Palestinians] will speak to -David Hale. I can see Cameron and Sarkozy with David…. I saw Egyptians….”
-A September 2010 email exchange is titled “Info for you,” and includes Sullivan, Blair and Clinton. Blair writes that he just spent three hours with Netanyahu, and Sullivan, using his Sprint BlackBerry, he writes “We have pitched this to [redacted].”

And on the Clinton Foundation: 

Several of the emails demonstrate the commingling of Clinton State Department and Clinton family foundation business:

-In a November 2010 email with subject line, “How do I get through to Bill Clinton,” Rafael Anchia, a lawyer with Haynes Boone, asks Clinton campaign official Ed Meier if he could get to the “gatekeepers” to get Bill Clinton to give a speech in Spain, noting that “a large bank is willing to pay for it.” 

-Meier forwarded the email to former State Department Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan who forwarded it to former Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin. Abedin sent it to Bill Clinton’s scheduler at the Clinton Foundation, Terry Krinvic, who provided Clinton’s contact information, to which Sullivan responded, “Awesome.”

-In September 2011, Abedin sent Sullivan an email concerning the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) with “Potential questions for Closing Plenary conversation between Secretary Clinton and Chelsea Clinton” in which Abedin included some “proposed questions” to put to Hillary and Chelsea Clinton. Four days later, Sullivan forwards a revised list of questions (completely redacted as interagency deliberative process) to Abedin and Clinton’s Chief of Staff, Cheryl Mills, saying, “Here are my proposed questions.”

“It is shameful that Hillary Clinton attempted to delete or hide classified information and that Obama appointees James Comey and Lorretta Lynch refused to prosecute her,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said about the finding. “It is clear that the Clintons were using the State Department to run an extensive influence peddling scheme. Americans should be concerned that while untold resources are devoted to the abusive Mueller special counsel investigation of President Trump, this Justice Department seems uninterested in prosecuting the Clintons.”
