Fresh trouble for Hillary Clinton is brewing. Bill Clinton’s foundation staff asked Hillary's State Department way back in 2012 for permission to speak to group that wants to end ALL sanctions against Iran. This information which Republican leaning group, Citizens United obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. This assumed significance in the light of the fact that US government is facing lot of opposition to the iran nuclear deal. U.S. Vice President Joe Biden's national security adviser on Tuesday said that despite the best efforts of opponents to "demonize" the Iran nuclear deal, the U.S. is moving forward with the agreement.

Though speech to the National Iranian American Council never occurred, but permission was sought as the State Department had opened top-secret talks that eventually led to current nuclear arms agreement. This is not an isolated incident. The foundation had previously sought permission for paid speeches in North Korea, Africa.

The email regarding this information from Bill Clinton's New York-based foundation was obtained by the US’s leading Fox News after being initially published by the Republican-leaning group Citizens United. The note appears to be part of a vetting process into the sensitivities of a potential Bill Clinton speech.More so, it is timing of the note that has caught the attention of the media. It came just as Hillary Clinton was launching top-secret talks with the Iranian government that eventually led to the nuclear arms agreement with the Mideast country.

Clinton aide Ami Desai used the email to feel out the State Department's response to a Bill Clinton speech to the group while it was holding a fundraising event in Washington D.C.The email was de-classified by the State Department last month. As per email, Desai wrote on June 4, 2012 which said,"Would USG have any concerns about WJC doing a paid speech for [the] National Iranian American Council ('NIAC')?' 'We have been approached by the National Iranian American Council ('NIAC') for President Clinton to speak at a fundraising gala they are putting on.'

The email further explained that the NIAC is trying 'to educate and encourage the Iranian-American community to get involved in the civic process,' and emphasizes that the event is unprecedented and the group is non-profit and non-partisan.

However, the exchange came when Hillary Clinton, was desperately trying to lay the groundwork for Iranian leaders in Tehran to start considering an arms control agreement instead of saber-rattling. The contents of the email which have become public now, are unlikely to make things better for Hillary Clinton, who finds herself engulfed in a never-ending spiral of controversy because she used a private, home-based email server while secretary of state.

Clinton has denied wrongdoing, although congressional Republicans and federal investigators are still looking into whether classified information was compromised through the practice.

Meanwhile, the State Department has been deluged with such requests after news broke earlier this year about Clinton's private server.  Infact, republicans are likely to use this email to oppose the agreement reached in July between Iran and a group. Republicans in Congress have staunchly opposed the agreement reached in July between Iran and a group that includes the U.S., Britain, China, France, Russia and Germany. Lawmakers have got 60 days to review the terms and either vote for or against the deal, but Republicans have so far failed in their bid to advance a resolution to reject it. Several Republicans running in next year's presidential election have also said they would seek to alter or scrap the deal.
