Saturday’s release provided more incriminating evidence of illegal activity at the Clinton Foundation, which according to an internal 2008 audit, “must act immediately to bring the Foundation into compliance with the law and standards that govern not-for-profits”, it also showed that Hillary’s campaign was paying for Bill Clinton’s legal fees, a transaction of questionable legality, as well as exposing a Bill Clinton speech in which he hinted that the system “is rigged” and that Hillary “deserves the White House.

In today’s release, several emails stand out: one is a July 25, 2015 email from John Podesta to Neera Tanden, in which we get the continuation of the infamous “drawn and quartered thread.” Recall that on October 27, we showed an email in which Tander blasted Hillary’s decision to have a private server as follows:
Do we actually know who told Hillary she could use a private email? And has that person been drawn and quartered?
Today we get Podesta’s response, in which he says that as a result of the server revelations “At least we now know why Cheryl didn’t want her to run.”

More troubling, and a further indication of Clinton Foundation impropriety, is a January 4, 2012 email from Teneo’s Doug Band, who has been extensively profiled on these pages, in which he accuses Chelsea Clinton of of “using foundation resources for her wedding and life for a decade.”

This is rich…below is an email from John Podesta back in August 2015 complaining about “oversamples” in a New Hampshire poll.
