More Pay-to-Play Emails Reveal Top Clinton Foundation Exec Sought Diplomatic Passports From Huma

Do voters even care about the corruption at this point?

Evidence of Hillary Clinton's corrupt dealings while serving as Secretary of State seems to be mounting daily, but will voters even take notice? 

The latest revelation comes, yet again, via emails obtained by Judicial Watch and show that Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band sought the help of Huma Abedin in obtaining special diplomatic passports for himself and his associates. 

Abedin's response to Band was:  "OK will figure it out." 

Below is Judicial Watch's summary of the Band-Abedin email thread and other damning emails concerning Band, Sydney Blumenthal and others involved in the so-called Clinton Foundation "pay-to-play" scheme. Judicial Watch: 

...released 510 pages of new State Department documents, including a 2009 request by Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band for diplomatic passports for himself and an associate.  Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s aide Abedin responded to Band’s request positively, saying, “Ok will figure it out.”  The emails show Hillary Clinton forwarding classified information to Abedin’s unsecured, non-state.gov account. 

[The passports] for himself [Band] and his associates – an unidentified “JD” and apparently Justin Cooper, formerly a key member of Bill Clinton’s personal office and the Clinton Foundation who has been linked to registration documents for and the shutting down of the email server at the center of Mrs. Clinton’s State Department emails controversy.

 

The U.S. Code of Federal Regulations strictly limits the granting of diplomatic passports to members of the Foreign Service, their family members, or those working on U.S. government contracts. According to 22 CFR 51.3:

Concerning other telling email exchanges, Judicial Watch writes:

The emails also show Bill Clinton sought a meeting with Mrs. Clinton for a major Clinton donor with State Department officials and Hillary Clinton herself pushed for a joint event with the Clinton Global Initiative.  Band also pushed for and obtained special help from Abedin for seven-figure Clinton Foundation donor Chris Ruddy, of Newsmax.com.

[...]Although an exchange sent from Sidney Blumenthal to Hillary Clinton concerning the “disastrous nature of the Obama trip” and the U.S. being “totally out of the loop in Berlin – no ambassador” with the expectation that “Germans and Russians will now cut their own separate deals on energy, regional security, etc….” had previously published by the State Department, it was unknown until now that Clinton forwarded this exchange containing classified information that was redacted for security reasons to Abedin’s unsecure non-state.gov account

This batch contains 37 Hillary Clinton email exchanges that had "not been turned over" to the State Department previously, Judicial Watch notes before tallying the total of unearthed emails to 228.

Recall Clinton said that as far as she knew, all of her government emails had been turned over to the State Department. 

Judicial Watch's analysis of the latest Clinton-email threads is worth reading in its entirety here, as the watchdog group provides numerous other damning examples of how Hillary Clinton's involvement with the Clinton Foundation during her time as Secretary of State "violated her ethics pledge."

Perhaps voters are simply too desensitized to care about Bill and Hillary Clinton's corruption. After all, they've been witnessing it for over 25 years and still keep rewarding the pair by allowing them to continue to infect politics in some form or other.
