While Hillary Clinton was dodging questions regarding charges of "pay to play" at the Clinton Foundation during the final presidential debate, Julian Assange's Wikileaks was busy leaking another batch of emails. These latest emails put Clinton at the center of charges that she herself was at the center of a negotiation to get a $12 million dollar commitment from King Mohammed VI of Morocco.
Another shocking revelation is that the allegation is made by Clinton's loyal aide, Huma Abedin, who described the connection in a January 2015 email exchange with two of her top advisers. The two advisers Abedin conversed with in the emails are John Podesta and Robby Mook. Abedin wrote "this was HRC's idea" to speak at a Clinton Global Initiative in Morocco back in May of 2015 as a specific condition for the huge monetary commitment from the Moroccan King of $12 million dollars. Abedin went on to say in the emails, "She created this mess and she knows it." The "mess" Abedin refers to is the fact that the presidential candidate now wants to back out of the speech since it would happen one month after the official launch of her presidential campaign and would only raise more questions about her involvement at the Clinton foundation.
It turns out that the Moroccan king donated far more than $12 million, and the real reason behind Clinton's unwillingness to attend the May 2015 event was that she was working to keep the extent of her involvement in the foundation from the public. Eventually Bill and Chelsea Clinton attended the event in May but Hillary did not. When confronted on the issue of the depth of her involvement at the foundation, Clinton says, "Well, everything I did as secretary of state was in furtherance of our country's interests and our values. The State Department has said that. I think that's been proven."
