New batch of emails show more on how the Clinton Foundation's pay to play scheme worked

Washington Examiner:
A new batch of emails from Hillary Clinton's time at the State Department offered fresh evidence Wednesday of the pains Clinton's staff took to accommodate her husband's paid speeches and her family's foundation — just hours after Sen. Tim Kaine dismissed the possibility that the Clinton Foundation had wielded influence over his running mate.

Emails showed Clinton's aides teamed up with the foundation to perform donor maintenance, craft messaging on key policies and put together guest lists for both diplomatic and philanthropic events. State Department staffers were often asked to advise Clinton's husband on how to handle politically-fraught speaking engagements or foundation events, such as an effort to bring the new Libyan president to a Clinton Global Initiative meeting that was held less than two weeks after the 2012 Benghazi attacks.

The trove of roughly 200 pages of records made public Wednesday was just the latest and most convincing indication that, rather than operate as an independent organization, the Clinton Foundation leaned heavily on the State Department to expand its global reach.
...

During the vice presidential debate Tuesday, Kaine claimed the State Department had looked into Clinton's conduct and concluded that she "took no action to benefit the foundation."

No such investigation ever occurred. In fact, the State Department specifically denied the existence of any investigation into Clinton Foundation influence as recently as August.
...
There is more.

Kaine is either deliberately deceitful or is misinformed on a matter of Clinton's ethics.  Why else would he pretend the there was some investigation of the scheme?  I think this latest batch fo emails show what Clinton was trying to cover up with her email destruction efforts.
