WASHINGTON TIMES — Messages involving the then-chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia and a top Clinton Foundation official and donor are among the dozens of new email exchanges from Hillary Clinton’s time as secretary of state released on Tuesday by a watchdog group.
One message from Stephen Roach, then-chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia, to Mrs. Clinton provides upcoming testimony on the U.S.-China economic relationship he was to deliver before Congress in early 2009.
Mrs. Clinton thanked Mr. Roach for sending it along and said she would ask her staff about possibly connecting in Beijing, later asking top aide Huma Abedin about that possibility.
Sen. Bernard Sanders had made Mrs. Clinton’s relationships with top Wall Street firms one of his more prominent criticisms during the Democratic presidential primary contest.
The messages were released by Judicial Watch, a conservative legal group that has fought for the release of her messages. The group said the new ones appear to contradict Mrs. Clinton’s statements that she turned over all her work-related emails to the State Department after her time there.
