ERIC BOLLING (GUEST HOST): Joining us now with reaction from Washington, Tom Finton, the president of Judicial Watch, the group which uncovered these new emails. Doug, I mean -- we have heard about these emails for most of the day. But, again, Doug Band, a top Clinton Foundation official asking the State Department for access to Lebanese man, presumably to do business with him, and then this man Doug Band says there is a lot of money involved. There is a million, somewhere between 1 million and 5 million involved that the Clinton Foundation is going to receive, right?

TOM FITTON: Yes. The name of the man is Mr. Chagoury, and he is a billionaire. He gave between 1 million to 5 million to the Clinton Foundation. committed to a billion dollar program associated with the Clinton Global Initiative, which is also part of the Foundation. And so, the Clinton Foundation's top operative Doug Band communicates with Clinton's top aides at the State Department, saying he wants to talk with someone, your top guy, about Lebanon.

And, you know -- he says he is important to us, which translates to most normal people as he is important to us because he is a big donor to us. And so people raised the issue as -- why is it that Mrs. Clinton who promised to stay out of Clinton Foundation business almost immediately, the Clinton Foundation and her top aides are trying to take care of a Clinton donor?

BOLLING: Now, if you read some of these emails, it sounds like this Doug Band is telling Huma Abedin, in this instance, who is working at the time -- this moment for Hillary Clinton, telling her what he is -- wants her to do, and she is responding saying yes, I will do that. I will get that done. That is the very definition of quid pro quo, especially if you tie in that money, the $1 to 5 million.
