State Department records indicate that a close aide to then-Secretary Hillary Clinton received nearly 150 different voicemails from a top executive of the Clinton Foundation in only two years, Fox News reported Tuesday.
Conservative activist group Citizens United obtained State Department chief of staff Cheryl Mills‘ call logs through a Freedom of Information Act and found 148 messages from Clinton Foundation chief operating officer Laura Graham. With calls more than once a week on average, no other individuals or non-profits called Mills nearly as frequently.
One phone message from Graham references “our boss” without identifying who that boss would be. State Department spokesman Mark Toner acknowledged to Fox News that Mills and Graham did not share any boss, as Mills’ boss Clinton theoretically severed ties with the Clinton Foundation upon joining the State Department.
Mills’ connection with the Clinton Foundation has recently undergone scrutiny after newly released emails showed she spent a weekend interviewing candidates for leadership positions in the nonprofit while still employed at the State Department. The Clinton campaign maintains that Mills only “volunteered her personal time to a charitable organization.”
