Newly released emails detail ties between Clinton Foundation, State Department

I am not a big Donald Trump supporter for many reasons, but I have several reasons I will NEVER support Hillary Clinton for President of the United States; here is the latest:

Mrs. Clinton, as Secretary of State, used her family's "Foundation" to receive donations in exchange for favors by the US Government. The list is vast, but there are many examples in this latest revelation of emails. It seems Mrs. Clinton's right-hand person, Huma Abedin, who now works for the campaign was able to achieve a "special designation" that allowed her to work at the State Department AND at the Clinton Foundation. 

Just three months into her tenure at the State Department, the Foundation went to work.

This is very sad for our country. I think one of our Founding Fathers said it best:

"In these sentiments, Sir, I agree to this Constitution, with all its faults, — if they are such; because I think a general Government necessary for us, and there is no form of government but what may be a blessing to the people, if well administered; and I believe, farther, that this is likely to be well administered for a course of years, and can only end in despotism, as other forms have done before it, when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic government, being incapable of any other."

-Ben Franklin at the Constitutional Convention (June 1787)
