In more campaign news, newly released State Department emails are raising questions about the close ties between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department during Clinton’s time as secretary of state. The 44 emails include communications between top members of the Clinton Foundation and Clinton’s top State Department advisers, including Huma Abedin and lawyer Cheryl Mills. One email shows a member of the Clinton Foundation asking Abedin and Mills for a “favor” in helping a Foundation associate land a job at the State Department. Abedin responded, “We all have him on our radar. Personnel has been sending him options.” In an other email, a Foundation executive wrote to Abedin and Mills asking for help putting a billionaire foundation donor in touch with the U.S. ambassador to Lebanon. Abedin responded, “I’ll talk to jeff,” referring to then-U.S. Ambassador Jeffrey Feltman. In response, the Clinton campaign said, “Neither of these emails involve the secretary or relate to the foundation’s work.”
