A new batch of e-mails from Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State has revealed a link between the Clinton Foundation and Lebanese-Nigerian, Gilbert Chagoury, who was a strong supporter of Nigeria’s late dictator, General Sani Abacha and allegedly has ties to Hezbollah.
According to a Fox news report, when the latest batch of emails sent and received from Clinton’s private email server were released this month, the Democratic presidential nominee faced backlash as they were compared with the portions of her daily schedules released from her time as Secretary of State.
A report from the Associated Press found that more than half of Clinton’s meetings or phone calls with government outsiders were conducted with donors for the Clinton Foundation. And Clinton’s ties with Lebanese-Nigerian donor Gilbert Chagoury deserved heightened scrutiny.
Several of the documents showed that the Department of State considered buying land for a U.S. Embassy in Nigeria from Chagoury after Clinton’s tenure ended. Clinton’s ties to Chagoury, who donated more than $1 million to the Clinton Foundation, raised several red flags after it came to light that Chagoury had been denied entry into the U.S. last year because of a suspected affiliation with Hezbollah through Lebanese politics.
