Clinton Foundation Executive Instructs Huma Abedin to “Show Love” to special Clinton Donor
Judicial Watch reports:
The heavily redacted documents from Abedin’s non-government account include an email from Hillary Clinton’s brother, Tony Rodham, to Abedin revealing that he acted as a go-between for a Clinton Foundation donor, Richard Park. And they reveal Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band instructing Abedin to “show love” to Clinton donor Andrew Liveris.
The documents included six Clinton email exchanges not previously turned over to the State Department, bringing the known total to date to at least 439 emails that were not part of the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton turned over to the State Department, and further contradicting a statement by Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails had been turned over to the State Department.
Andrew Liveris, the man Abedin was instructed to “show love” to was the CEO of Dow Chemical. Dow donated between $1 million and $5 million to the Clinton Global Initiative. and Clinton Foundation. The e-mails also reveal that in 2009, Tony Rodham, Hillary Clinton’s brother, passed a special letter from a Korean businessman to the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. Coincidentally this man, Richard Park was a major donor to the Clinton Foundation, donating between $100,000 and $250,000 to the foundation.
In March 2012, Bill Clinton received an invitation to speak at the Kaesong Industrial Complex in North Korea…. Richard Park’s friendship with Tony Rodham earned him a direct line to Hillary Clinton while she served as secretary of state. In January 2013, the Korean businessman sent Rodham an email and asked him to “forward this to your sister.”
