Was the Clinton Foundation selling diplomatic passports?

Given what is known about the endlessly corrupt Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, I’m going to go with YES.

The Daily Caller reports:

New emails released by Judicial Watch in connection with its probe of the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation indicate Clinton Foundation donors lobbied senior Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin for diplomatic passports.

Abedin responded positively to the donor inquiries, according to the email.

The donors in question include Doug Band and Justin Cooper. The email indicates that Band reached out to Abedin in 2009, when she served as deputy chief of staff at the U.S. Department of State, and asked for her help in obtaining diplomatic passports for him, Cooper, and a third individual identified only by their initials.

Teneo Holdings founder Doug Band, by the way, is knee deep in sleazy Clinton muck. At some point an aide to Bill Clinton, he previously lobbied the State Department on behalf of Clinton Foundation donor Gilbert Chagoury, who was barred from the United States because of possible ties to terrorist group Hamas.

I wrote about Huma Abedin recently: Huma Abedin, Daughter of Jihad and Huma Abedin, Hillary’s Bribe Broker.
