Newly released emails show that a former Democratic National Committee official and lobbyist for the Turkish government directly contacted two of Hillary Clinton’s top aides to ask for a favor ahead of the then-secretary of state’s March 2009 visit to Turkey.
The correspondence raises numerous questions because the lobbyist, David Mercer, was paid $25,000 a month by the Turkish government to convince lawmakers and government officials to oppose a bill designating the Ottoman Empire’s murder of an estimated 1.5 million Armenian Orthodox Christians from 1915 to 1917 a genocide.
Mercer, who once served as deputy national finance director for the DNC, also failed to disclose the contact with the two Clinton aides — her deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin and Caprcia Penavic Marshall, then an operative for one of Clinton’s campaign committees — under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).
Hillary Clinton used to back recognition of Armenian genocide and then money from the right sources began coming her way. And now she no longer does.
During a State Department town hall in Jan. 2012 she said that the issue of whether the mass murder was genocide was still up for debate.
“I think it’s fair to say that this has always been viewed, and I think properly so, as a matter of historical debate and conclusions rather than political,” she said at the time.
Unlike Hillary Clinton’s corruption which hasn’t been a matter of debate in decades.
The correspondence between Mercer, Huma and Hillary is redacted just enough so you can’t tell what’s going on. But you don’t have to guess too hard. Mercer was a Turkish lobbyist and Hillary Clinton was headed to Turkey. The odds that the favor involved something that the Turkish government wanted done are higher than Hillary Clinton’s polygraph spikes.
And so either way it’s another example of the habitual Clinton corruption.
