Bombshell Email Release Shows State Department Gave Special Attention to Clinton Friends After Haiti Earthquake

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Hillary Clinton may not have known what the “C” meant on certain emails, but the State Department was very familiar with another designation: FOB, which stands for “Friends of Bill.”

A batch of emails released as part of a Freedom of Information Act request shows that the State Department collaborated with the Clinton Foundation on numerous occasions via email exchange. The release sheds a whole lot more light on just how cozy the foundation was with a government agency.

In a series of candid email exchanges with top Clinton Foundation officials during the hours after the massive 2010 Haiti earthquake, a senior aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton repeatedly gave special attention to those identified by the abbreviations “FOB” (friends of Bill Clinton) or “WJC VIPs” (William Jefferson Clinton VIPs).

“Need you to flag when people are friends of WJC,” wrote Caitlin Klevorick, then a senior State Department official who was juggling incoming offers of assistance being funneled to the State Department by the Clinton Foundation. “Most I can probably ID but not all.”

And a little more… (emphasis mine)

However noble the motives of the officials working to get supplies into Haiti after the 2010 earthquake, numerous messages show a senior aide to then–Secretary of State Hillary Clinton coordinating with a Clinton Foundation official to identify FOBs. The Clintons have said repeatedly that the State Department never gave favorable treatment to foundation supporters in Haiti or anywhere else.

“Nothing was ever done for anybody because they were contributors to the foundation,” Bill Clinton told CBS News’ Charlie Rose in September. “Nothing.”

The correspondence offers a glimpse into the first stages of a $10 billion Haiti recovery effort. The emails appear to show a State Department process that at times prioritized — and, some argue, benefited — people with close ties to the Clintons.

It is absurd to think that if the Clintons were involved then everything was on the up-and-up. Somebody got rich off the disaster, and it wasn’t the Haitian people. It was friends of the Clinton family who benefited from the devastation in Haiti… oh, and by the way, the Clinton Foundation is getting involved in Hurricane Matthew recovery.

How on earth can anyone - anyone – want Hillary Clinton to be in charge of anything? There’s absolutely no guarantee at all that any of this changes just because she holds the highest political office in the nation. She just has way more cookie jars to slip her fingers into.
