Emails Reveal What Bahrain Prince Received for Donating $32 Million to Clinton Foundation

New emails from Hillary Clinton's private server that were not previously turned over to the State Department have been revealed some unsettling exchanges that do not make the Democratic Presidential candidate look very good. Clinton allegedly gave preferential treatment to Clinton Foundation donors.

Huma Abedin, Clinton's aide, went between Clinton and Clinton Foundation donors when the current presidential candidate was serving as Secretary of State. A number of emails show Abedin provided people who had donated in excess of $25,000 to the foundation got expedited service and direct access to Clinton.

Crown Prince Salman of Bahrain had at one point requested a meeting with Clinton and was forced to go through the Clinton Foundation to get an appointment with the then Secretary of State. Salman committed to establishing the Crown Prince's International Scholarship Program for the Clinton Global Initiative, and had given the initiative some $32 million in donations. President of the Clinton Foundation, Douglas Band, intervened to have a meeting set up within 48 hours.

In another exchange revealed in the emails, the State Department approved $70,000 worth of arms sales for 'toxilogical agents.' Previous sales amounted to around $700. At the time, Bahrain allegedly tear gassed its own people in an attempt to suppress pro-democracy protests.

Clinton has previously testified under penalty of perjury that she had turned over all work-related emails from her server to the FBI. A Clinton aide denies any wrongdoing by Ms. Clinton.
