US State Department officials begin covering up Hillary’s “pay-to-play” Clinton Foundation scandal [Video]

US State Department spokesperson Elizabeth Trudeau is working overtime trying to cover up and dodge the many questions being thrown at her regarding the latest Hillary Clinton scandal.

Instead of actually answering reporters’ questions regarding the fact that Hillary Clinton’s staff at the State Department were handing out favors to Clinton Foundation donors, Trudeau tried to steer the conversation towards the “55,000” organisations that US State Department officials do come in contact with on a daily basis.

Trudeau was trying to bury reporters in paperwork, hoping they would not stay on point…which in this case involves examining the very close ties between the State Department and the Clinton Foundation, when it was headed by the Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Zerohedge reports on what is an unbelievable exchange from the “transparent” Obama government…

And it is this stonewalling in the face of clear evidence of the potential for ‘inappropriate relationships’ that has pushed a normaly docile press corps to its breaking point with The State Department. As Mediaite details, having refused to comment – other than the prepared party-line bullshit – when asked straightforward questions with regard the potential for conflicts of interest raised by the emails, reporters confronted State spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau…

Three separate reporters – starting with NBC’s Abigail Williams – asked Trudeau about whether there was any improper relationship between State and the Clinton Foundation.

Trudeau repeatedly downplayed the emails and said the department is “regularly in touch” with a wide range of people.

Three separate reporters – starting with NBC’s Abigail Williams – asked Trudeau about whether there was any improper relationship between State and the Clinton Foundation.

Trudeau repeatedly downplayed the emails and said the department is “regularly in touch” with a wide range of people.

At one point, as another reporter – the AP’s Matt Lee – was getting frustrated with the lack of answers, he said this: “I’m sorry, are you – am I not speaking English? Is this – I mean, is it coming across as foreign – I’m not asking you if – no one is saying it’s not okay or it’s bad for the department to get a broad variety of input from different people. Asking – the question is whether or not you have determined that there was nothing improper here.”

As the exchange heated, Trudeau let slip how Hillary Clinton will deflect responsibility for the pay-to-play game going on between her Clinton Foundation and the US Government.

One reporter rightly noted that Hillary Clinton did in fact sign a document and “made a pledge” not to involve herself with the Clinton Foundation while she was US Secretary of State.

Trudeau then revealed teflon Hillary’s soon to be defense, in what will surely be another Clinton deny and deflect tactic that is becoming common place…

“I’d note that former Secretary Clinton’s ethics agreement did not preclude other State Department officials from having contact with Clinton foundation staff.”

And there you have it. Hillary will explain the entire pay-to-play scandal by simply saying that she did not have contact with the foundation…‘what does it matter if Huma or Cheryl did have contact with the foundation…they did not sign the ethics agreement’.

Zerohedge summarizes the frustrating situation of State Department officials covering up yet another Hillary Clinton scandal…

– we have hard evidence of the potential for an inappropriate relationship between Hillary Clinton’s State Department and The Clinton Foundation – after she had pledged that this would not occur. We have The Justice Department  – led by Clinton appointee Loretta Lynch – implicitly blocking The FBI’s probe of The Clinton Foundation’s dealings (for, among other reasons, the timing could be viewed as “politically motivated.” We have a State Department Inspector General who is silent.. and a State Department public relations person who has stonewalled so much, even the American press corps has grown frustrated… and the mainstream media on TV will be running stories on Trump’s poll numbers, his apparent ‘resignation’ to losing, and his “friends and family” economic plan.

Is it any wonder an increasingly frustrated majority of Americans do not trust Hillary, the establishment, and the status quo’s American Dream? Simply put, the lengths by which strings are being pulled to ensure a Clinton presidency may well turn out to the straw that broke the camel’s back of public restraint.
