The ongoing release of emails from Huma Abedin demonstrate the cozy relationship the US State Department had with the Clinton Foundation/Clinton Global Initiative during the maladministration of Hillary Clinton. Another shoe dropped yesterday when Judicial Watch release an email that indicated officials of the Clinton Foundation/Clinton Global Initiative requested diplomatic passports.
Diplomatic passports, by law, are only issued to members of the US government, or private citizens serving on federal commissions like the American Battlefield Monuments Commission, and can only be used when traveling for official purposes AND representing the US government.
The diplomatic passport is issued to a Foreign Service officer or to a person having diplomatic status because he or she is traveling abroad to carry out diplomatic duties on behalf of the United States Government. As with an official passport, the diplomatic passport cannot be used for leisure travel. For this reason, diplomats are encouraged to obtain a regular passport before departing the United States for official duties.
