US Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota that allegations that while Secretary of State Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton gave special access to world leaders who donated to the Clinton Foundation.
Senator Sessions said, “The evidence indicates to me that this should be fully investigated.” “You do not use the Secretary of State position to benefit your private foundation.”
Sessions said, “The fundamental thing is you cannot be Secretary of State of the United States of America and use that position to extort or seek contributions to your private foundation. That is a fundamental violation of law and that does appear to have happened.”
Republican nominee Donald Trump has called for a special prosecutor to be appointed.
Sec. Clinton in a phone interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper denied allegations that she was improperly influenced by countries that donated to the Foundations, which she defended saying it does life changing work.
Clinton said that neither her or her husband, former President Bill Clinton (D) have ever drawn a salary from the foundation.
Judicial Watch claims that Sec. Clinton gave special access to top Clinton Foundation donors.
Judicial Watch recently released 725 pages of new State Department documents, including previously unreleased email exchanges in which former Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin appears to have provided influential Clinton Foundation donors special, expedited access to the then Secretary of State.
Judicial Watch claims that in many instances, the preferential treatment provided to donors was at the specific request of Clinton Foundation executive Douglas Band.
Judicial Watch claims that 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.
In Abedin’s June deposition to Judicial Watch, she conceded that part of her job at the State Department was taking care of “Clinton family matters.”
Senator Jeff Sessions was the first Senator to endorse reality TV star and New York City Billionaire Donald J. Trump.
