Forbes To 'Honor' Hillary Clinton With Lifetime Achievement Award, Nets 'Thrilled'
Despite recent developments with the Durham probe, Hillary Clinton will receive the Forbes International Women’s Day Lifetime Achievement Award at the March inaugural "Forbes 30/50 Summit" in Abu Dhabi, Mika Brzezinski announced Tuesday on Morning Joe. The award is in recognition of Clinton's "leadership and influential voice on the global stage in advancing the cause of women and fighting for gender equity."
"I am thrilled to announce former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will headline the next month's 30/50 summit in Abu Dhabi," said Brzezinski. "I will interview Secretary Clinton as she receives the Forbes International Women's Day Lifetime Achievement Award."
“Advancing women serve the cause of advancing the world itself, and the Forbes 30/50 Summit will create unprecedented opportunities for multigenerational mentorship,” said Randall Lane, Chief Content Officer and Editor, Forbes. “There is no one more fitting than Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton to receive the Forbes International Women’s Day Lifetime Achievement Award.”
I must have missed where Clinton helped 'advance women' throughout her entire career. She surely did nothing for her husband's accusers and only severed to hurt women during her time as a lawyer.

"Durham filed a motion on Feb. 11 focused on potential conflicts of interest related to the representation of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman, who has been charged with making a false statement to a federal agent. Sussman has pleaded not guilty.
The indictment against Sussman says he told then-FBI General Counsel James Baker in September 2016, less than two months before the 2016 presidential election, that he was not doing work "for any client" when he requested and held a meeting in which he presented "purported data and 'white papers' that allegedly demonstrated a covert communications channel" between the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank, which has ties to the Kremlin.
But Durham's filing on Feb. 11, in a section titled "Factual Background," reveals that Sussman "had assembled and conveyed the allegations to the FBI on behalf of at least two specific clients, including a technology executive (Tech Executive 1) at a U.S.-based internet company (Internet Company 1) and the Clinton campaign."
Durham’s filing said Sussman’s "billing records reflect" that he "repeatedly billed the Clinton Campaign for his work on the Russian Bank-1 allegations."
Durham states that the internet company that Tech Executive-1 worked for "had come to access and maintain dedicated servers" for the Executive Office of the President as "part of a sensitive arrangement whereby it provided DNS resolution services to the EOP."
"Tech Executive-1 and his associates exploited this arrangement by mining the EOP's DNS traffic and other data for the purpose of gathering derogatory information about Donald Trump," Durham states."
