As a Washington correspondent for a major Christian radio news program, I got to know Tom Fitton and his investigative organization, Judicial Watch. Judicial Watch is a non-partisan foundation that promotes transparency, accountability and integrity in government, politics and the law.
Judicial Watch seeks to ensure that political and judicial officials do not abuse the powers entrusted to them by the American people. If not for Judicial Watch, Hillary Clinton’s email scandal would have been totally swept under the rug. And it’s not over. Judicial Watch has released another 296 pages of State Department documents it obtained through a court battle, and those pages reveal even more corruption and negligence by Clinton.
Judicial Watch reports:
The new documents reveal that in April 2009 controversial Clinton Foundation official Doug Band pushed for a job for an associate. In the email Band tells Hillary Clinton’s former aides at the State Department Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin, that it is “important to take care of” [name redacted]. Band is reassured by Abedin that “Personnel has been sending him options.” Band was co-founder of Teno Strategy with Bill Clinton and a top official of the Clinton Foundation, including its Clinton Global Initiative… Band also “directs Abedin and Mills to put Lebanese-Nigerian billionaire and Clinton Foundation donor Gilbert Chagoury in touch with the State Department’s ‘substance person’ on Lebanon.”
Many may recall that Chagoury was convicted in 2000 in Switzerland for laundering money from Nigeria, but agreed to a plea deal and repaid some $66 million to the Nigerian government. Well, Chagoury, according to Judicial Watch, “is a close friend of former President Bill Clinton and a top donor to the Clinton Foundation.
He has appeared near the top of the Foundation’s donor list as a $1 million to $5 million contributor, according to foundation documents. He also pledged $1 billion to the Clinton Global Initiative.” These favors and interactions with the Clinton Foundation appear to be in violation of the ethics agreements that Hillary Clinton agreed to in order to be appointed and confirmed as Secretary of State.
On January 5, 2009 Secretary of State-designate Hillary Clinton sent a letter to State Department Designated Agency Ethics Official James H. Thessin, saying:
For the duration of my appointment as Secretary if I am confirmed, I will not participate personally and substantially in any particular matter involving specific parties in which The William J. Clinton Foundation (or the Clinton Global Initiative) is a party or represents a party….”
Hillary Clinton’s lack of morals and ethics are beyond description. It’s not enough to dismiss this because “all” politicians are alike. No one is quite like her. Exodus 23:1 says, “Do not join your hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.”
We know the truth about Clinton, let us not join hands with her and confirm her unrighteousness.
