While the news about Brexit flooded across all the various news agencies, there is one news item that is more important and it is being completely ignored — the Associated Press discovered that Hillary Clinton held dozens of meetings with political donors and other operatives during her time as secretary of State and that they were left off of her official schedule.
Documents show at least 75 meetings with longtime backers of her political efforts, the Clinton Foundation and other interests that were not included on her official calendar or whose names were not disclosed. This includes at least 114 nongovernmental officials.
The AP found the so-called ‘discrepancies’ between Clinton’s schedule and her 1,500-page official calendar by comparing notes compiled by Clinton’s aides each day. The omissions won’t amount too much are an example of excessive secrecy and a questionable mix of government business with outside interests.
We already know Hillary Clinton was enriching her personal interests through things like donations from foreign governments; a $55 million State Department grant to a university which paid her husband $16 million; and Wall Street speeches, which she’s attempting keep private as well.
Now, these 75 off-the-record meetings show dealings with financiers and CEOs of major companies, as well as major political donors, who also lobbied the government and donated to Clinton’s personal interests. This misuse of her political position to line her many pant-suit pockets should disgust any American who is awake and still values integrity.
