Chelsea Clinton to remain on family foundation board

Chelsea Clinton to remain on family foundation board

A trove of emails from Clinton's time as secretary of state released Monday revealed how donors to the Clinton Foundation sought, and sometimes received, access to Clinton and her aides at the State Department.

Email releases from hacked servers show that Huma Abedin, Hillary's top aide, connected and dealt with numerous requests personally and not all went to Hillary.

"It is impossible to figure out where the Clinton Foundation ends and the State Department begins", Trump said at a rally in Austin.

In his speech yesterday, Trump elaborated on the Clinton Foundation's acceptance of donations from oppressive regimes, as well as the recent discovery that over 50 percent of the non-government officials who met with Clinton during her tenure as Secretary of State were donated to her private foundation.

"It is outrageous to misrepresent Secretary Clinton's basis for meeting with these individuals", spokesman Brian Fallon said.

"Even if she doesn't exercise it, the fact that she could creates a potential conflict of interest", he said.

In another email forwarded by Band to Abedin, businessman and Clinton Foundation donor Gerardo Wertheim praises a rabbi the United States ambassador in Malta is going to meet with, with Band calling Wertheim a "great friend" and "big supporter".

In 2005, Salman committed to launching the Crown Prince's International Scholarship Program (CPISP) for the Clinton Global Initiative.

Former President Bill Clinton announced last week that if Hillary Clinton were elected president, the Clinton Foundation would no longer accept foreign and corporate donations, he would step down from its board and he no longer would raise money for the organization.

The new emails come after Judicial Watch released earlier this month 296 pages of State Department records.

Simplify that line of defense and you get this: Trust us.

"I am sure, and I am sure because I have a very strong foundation of understanding about the foundation" and the good work it has done, the Democratic candidate said in an interview with MSNBC.

Some Republicans continue to demand that the Clintons immediately shut down the foundation altogether, and emails keep trickling out showing how big donors to the foundation may have had back-door access to the State Department while Clinton ran it. "The point is, she can't just walk away from these 6,000 donors".

"The Clintons have spent decades as insiders lining their own pockets and taking care of donors instead of the American people", said the Republican nominee in a statement on August 22.

The issue has hung over her campaign for the White House and raised questions among voters about her trustworthiness. "Our own direct foundation efforts are helping hundreds of thousands of people all around the world".
