Newly released emails obtained by Judicial Watch confirm that the Prince of Bahrain gained access to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton through the Clinton Foundation in June of 2009 after unsuccessfully trying “normal channels.”
Bahrain Crown Prince Salman’s meeting with Clinton was arranged by her close aide Huma Abedin. Because of course.
“[He’s] asking to see her,” Doug Band, a senior executive at the Clinton Foundation told Abedin via email. “Good friend of ours.”
Abedin confessed that Salman had already placed a request for a meeting through “normal channels.”
“I asked and [Hillary] said she doesn’t want to commit to anything for thurs or fri until she knows how she will feel,” Abedin wrote, replying back to Band.
Shortly after in a follow-up email, Abedin told the high-ranking Clinton Foundation employee that “HRC” had decided to meet with Crown Prince Salman. The message was then presumably transmitted to Bahrain.
