Judge expands investigation into Hillary Clinton’s dealings with Clinton Foundation donors while she was Secretary of State
Last week we learned that Hillary Clinton left 75 meetings with donors off of her official State Department calendar and it is not getting any better for the former Secretary of State. Today a Federal Judge expanded the investigation into her email account seeking to learn if she had an off the record schedule of meetings. Here is more:
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 off-the-books schedule, meeting with Clinton Foundation donors on the taxpayer’s dime. “Citizens United wants to know how many overseas dinners Secretary Clinton attended with Clinton Foundation donors that didn’t make it on her schedule,” he says.
Following last week’s revelation I think this judge would have been hard-pressed to rule otherwise. It seems pretty obvious that something nefarious was going on in the State Department during Hillary Clinton’s tenure in office and this investigation is not going to go away any time soon. The only question is: what difference at this point does it make?
