Anthony Weiner emails reveal Abedin’s help of Clinton Foundation Donors
The recently uncovered emails on Anthony Weiner’s computer show that Hillary, while serving as secretary of state, helped the sponsors of the Clinton Foundation.
Anthony Weiner’s wife and top Hillary aide, Huma Abedin, connected Department of State staffers to a Russian cultural group, following a request by Eddie Trump, a sponsor to the Clinton Foundation with no relation to President Trump.
As one email obtained and released by the Judicial Watch on May 10, 2010 shows us, Huma told a former Bill Clinton aide, Doug Band, that she “hooked up” people who recommended Trump to the “right people” at the Department of State. Eddie Trump had probably suggested that Huma linked Russian American Foundation Vice President RinaKirshner with State Department officials.
On Monday, May 10, 2010, at 9:41 PM, Huma wrote to Kirshenr, “Hi Rina – wanted to connect on meeting at state department. Eddie trump passed on your email. Will be in touch soon.”
A couple of days later, Kirshner replied to Huma, thanking her and saying that a staffer from the State Department had called her to join the US-Russia Cultural Sub-Working Group” the next week:

Subject: Re: Eddie Trump/Doug Band
Just wanted to follow up and express our gratitude. I was contacted today by Ms. Christina Miner who invited us to be part of the US-Russia Cultural Sub-Working Group meeting next week. Thank you very much for all your assistance – if there is any way we can be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Huma then sent that email to Band, writing, “We hooked her up with the right people here”:

fyi – we hooked her up with the right people here
The Judicial Watch claims that the Russia America Foundation was operated by Clinton political followers and functionaries, received over $260,000 in donations for “public diplomacy” from the Clinton Department of State, and it’s leadership backed President Obama’s Russian stance.
A few days later, another email revealed that Huma sent Trump’s name and details for inclusion on the guest list for Senate Dinner, regardless of the fact that he missed the cut-off time to RSVP, and only spouses were permitted at the dinner, no other guests.
“I thought people could bring spouses but not guests. But ill [sic] send,” Huma noted.
