A senior executive at Clinton Foundation left almost 150 telephone messages for Hillary Clinton’s top aide at State Department within a two-year time frame, according to previously unpublished documents obtained by Fox News. A review of State Department call logs for Cheryl Mills, the longtime Bill Clinton confidant who served as chief of staff for the entirety of Clinton’s four-year tenure as America’s top diplomat, reflects at least 148 messages from Laura Graham – then the Clinton Foundation’s chief operating officer – between 2010 and 2012.
