Isn’t this considered ‘pay for play’? The January 2015 email was from Clinton’s aide Huma to Podesta and campaign manager Robby Mook. It referenced a $12 MILLION payout from the king of Morocco in exchange for Clinton’s appearance at a meeting.

Politico reported in April 2015 that the Clinton Foundation accepted a “major donation” of foreign money from Morocco, stating the amount was “at least $1 million.” Well, they might have been a little off on their estimate.
Clinton’s appearance was questionable, though husband Bill was expected:
Clinton had been scheduled to appear at the meeting in Marrakech, dubbed the Clinton Global Initiative Middle East and Africa Meeting, on May 5-7. But an official with the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation told POLITICO it’s “unlikely” the former secretary of state will join her husband, Bill. He is still expected at the event, as is Moroccan King Mohammed VI.
The event is being funded largely by a contribution of at least $1 million from OCP, a phosphate exporter owned by Morocco’s constitutional monarchy, according to multiple sources with direct knowledge of the event.
