News broke Thursday of a new Clinton campaign e-mail exposed by WikiLeaks that reinforces the persistent notion that the Clinton Foundation is a pay-for-play scheme.
And yet the “Big Three” networks ABC, CBS, and NBC pretended like it didn’t even happen. “New scrutiny tonight on the Clinton Foundation coming from what were supposed to be private e-mails,” stated Fox News Anchor Bret Baier on Special Report, moving on to ask, “How much money and how much influence were on the table in dealings involving the Clinton family charity?”
Fox News Chief National Correspondent Ed Henry noted that Bill Clinton once received criticism for negotiating a $1 million contribution to the Clinton Foundation, but what Hillary was able to lure out of donor was much greater. “A WikiLeaks e-mail surfaced showing the candidate herself lined up a $12 million commitment from the King Mohammed the VI of Morocco,” Henry reported.
The $12 million revelation was discussed in an e-mail chain between Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin, Campaign Manager Robby Mook, and Campaign Chairman, John Podesta. The three were frantic by how shady the donation would look as they approached the date Clinton would announce her candidacy for president, with Abedin spitting, ““She created this mess and she knows it.””
According to Henry’s report the huge donation was so that the King of Morocco would be able to have a meeting with Clinton. And in an e-mail send by Mook it was clear that Clinton was very persistent in wanting the donation.
Reading from an e-mail Henry said:
Abedin replied, “The condition upon which the Moroccans agreed to host the meeting was her participation. This was HRC’s idea. Our office approached the Moroccans and they 100 percent believe they are doing this at her request. The King has personally committed approximately $12 million.”
At the debate, Clinton avoided Donald Trump’s demand to return any donation from any country not favorable to human rights. Ironically, “In 2011, Clinton State Department charged the Moroccan government was behind arbitrary arrests and corruption,” as reported by Henry.
