CAIRO - 13 October 2020: Emails from former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, recently declassified, revealed correspondence with Yemeni Nobel Peace Prize-winning activist Tawakkol Karman, whom Clinton met a few days before the outbreak of the Yemeni revolution, arranged by the US Embassy in Sanaa.
CNN published the transcript of letters sent to Clinton on April 7, 2011, from a person called "PVerveer" (he did not know his exact identity and position at the time), and the message says: "A few days later, I visited Karman's house in the center of Sanaa, and in the living room four pictures are hanging on the wall for four people - Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, and Hillary Clinton."
Shortly before the start of the revolution,Clinton met Karman, her organization, and Journalists without Restrictions, which receives US government funding, in January. Karman said that the meeting with Clinton was arranged by the US Embassy, and added in the message, "I do not want to be a foreign minister, but she is my idol."
Another cable from the mail of Clinton revealed the hidden relations that she had with Yemeni Brotherhood members, such as Tawakkol Karman, where exchanged messages from State Department employees showed their joy thatthe Nobel Peace Prize was granted to Tawakkol Karman in 2011.
Hundreds of emails have been publicly published on the U.S. state administration website upon President Donald Trump's orders to his Foreign Minister Mike Pompeo, as Clinton's private email server was attacked by Trump whenhe was campaigning against her in 2016, saying that Clinton should be trailed for these emails.
On October 7, Trump said on his twitter account that he authorized the declassification of Clinton emails, describing her conduct as a"crime".
“I have fully authorized the total declassification of any & all documents pertaining to the single greatest political CRIME in American History, the Russia Hoax. Likewise, the Hillary Clinton Email Scandal. No redactions!” Trump wrote.
