Hillary may not be the president of America soon but that does not mean that she shouldn’t be punished for her crimes. According to leaked emails, Clinton made connections for her daughter’s friend which could have led to lucrative government contracts.

The then-secretary of state reportedly arranged meetings between Jacqueline Newmyer-Deal, a childhood friend of Chelsea’s and president of Long Term Strategy Group, and top Pentagon officials. The meetings are believed to have led to consulting contracts for the group.
In 2009, Clinton recommended Deal to Michele Flournoy, who was fresh in her role as the undersecretary for defense policy at the Department of Defense. After the meeting, Deal reportedly thanked Clinton for “all [her] encourage and help with DoD.”
“I met with Michele’s other deputy yesterday, and we had a productive discussion about Iran and developments in maritime Asia,” Deal continued. “We also discussed contract vehicles and mapped out what we need to do so that we can go to work! I am very grateful for everything you have done.”
Deal’s Long Term Strategy Group received more than $1.3 million from DoD contracts, and the Pentagon paid the group around $60,000 for unclassified reports of between 20 and 40 pages. It dished out about $40,000 more for workshops with DoD officials and think tanks. In total, the group has received about $6 million from federal contracts since 2009.
One of the reports delivered to the Pentagon was reportedly entitled “On the Nature of Americans as a Warlike People.”
The report claimed that “the United States will continue to use war as an instrument of state policy,” since many in government descended from the Scots-Irish.
Flournoy has no recollection of meeting with Deal but told The Washington Free Beacon that she did not directly make decisions with the people she mentored in her position.
“Whether any of the people I have met with went on to win contracts with the Office of Net Assessment or other Department of Defense entities was outside my purview as undersecretary of defense for policy,” she argued. “I have and will continue to work with young men and women, including those recommended to me by people whose opinion and judgment I respect, such as Secretary Clinton.”
The last email chain between Deal and Clinton took place after Clinton attended Deal’s wedding—just one day before Operation Red Dawn, where U.S. Special Forces killed Obama Bin Laden.
“I was delighted to be there and stayed as long as I could at the reception before having to leave,” Clinton told Deal. “I confess that the Bin Laden op the next day consumed most of my mental space!”
