In an August 22, 2016, announcement from Judicial Watch regarding emails released because of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request it was revealed that Huma Abedin had received a request for special access for donors of the Clinton Foundation.
According to the announcement "The Abedin emails reveal that the longtime Clinton aide apparently served as a conduit between Clinton Foundation donors and Hillary Clinton while Clinton served as secretary of state. In more than a dozen email exchanges, Abedin provided expedited, direct access to Clinton for donors who had contributed from $25,000 to $10 million to the Clinton Foundation. In many instances, Clinton Foundation top executive Doug Band, who worked with the Foundation throughout Hillary Clinton’s tenure at State, coordinated closely with Abedin".
It continues "Included among the Abedin-Band emails is an exchange revealing that when Crown Prince Salman of Bahrain requested a meeting with Secretary of State Clinton, he was forced to go through the Clinton Foundation for an appointment. Abedin advised Band that when she went through “normal channels” at State, Clinton declined to meet. After Band intervened, however, the meeting was set up within forty-eight hours. According to the Clinton Foundation website, in 2005, Salman committed to establishing the Crown Prince’s International Scholarship Program (CPISP) for the Clinton Global Initiative. And by 2010, it had contributed $32 million to CGI. The Kingdom of Bahrain reportedly gave between $50,000 and $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation. And Bahrain Petroleum also gave an additional $25,000 to $50,000".
Knowing now that the FBI has found tens of thousands of additional emails from Abedin could there be additional evidence of Clinton's pay to play enterprise?
Speculation runs ramped however what we do know is that it is something important enough for the FBI director James Comey to attempt to correct the record of his congressional testimony, even at this late juncture before the election.
Although the Clinton campaign had suggested that these might be duplicate emails, that FOIA request did turn up additional emails that Clinton did not turn over to the Department of State.
It remains to be seen if these new emails contain any emails like the ones discovered by that previous FOIA request.
