What an odd coincidence this is.
Just as the eyes of the country were turned toward Hillary Clinton, watching with emotions that ranged somewhere between wonder and angry outrage as the queries and investigations went forth into her home-based email server and into her family’s Clinton Foundation – then this happens.
“The State Department has admitted it lost a 2012 email between Hillary Clinton aide Jake Sullivan and a Clinton Foundation employee, which may demonstrate a financial conflict of interest for the former secretary of State,” Breitbart reported.
That doesn’t look good – especially for a candidate who’s suffered quite a bit on the truth scale in recent polls.
The Washington Examiner gave a description of the message: “The email contained an attachment memo about Greek bonds – a significant detail given the heavy investments Clinton’s son-in-law, Marc Mezvinsky, was making in the Greek economic recovery during that same period.”
Chelsea, who’s married to Mezvinsky, is a board member on the Clinton Foundation.
And as the Washington Examiner goes on: “The fact that one of Clinton’s closest aides shared insider information about the economic climate in Greece with the foundation – just one year after Mezvinsky and fellow Goldman Sachs alum founded a hedge fund that operated primarily by placing bets on international economic trends – raises questions about the many potential conflicts of interest that could have arisen from the Clintons’ web of connections.”
Citizens United obtained the email with the information via a Freedom of Information Act request. But after a lawyer from that organization asked the State Department to provide a copy, attorneys for the government said they don’t have the original.
A spokesman for Citizens United said the email’s disappearance is very curious.
“Hillary Clinton truly left her mark on the State Department,” said J.T. Mastranadi, Breitbart reported. “Why do the most important emails always end up missing? The State Department should explain to the American people why this information is unavailable.”
