The evidence that shows close ties between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department proves Hillary Clinton lied during her confirmation hearing in 2009, according to ABC News.

The network's Brian Ross said Tuesday morning Clinton vowed not to grant special access to foundation donors if she earned the confirmation to serve in the Obama administration. But she didn't stick to her promise, according to new documents released by Judicial Watch Monday.

Several emails show the Clinton State Department essentially showed favoritism to top donors of the Clinton Foundation by setting up personal meetings with Clinton, helping obtain a visa for members of a British soccer team, and facilitating a push to broadcast U2's Bono from the international space station.

"These new emails confirm that Hillary Clinton abused her office by selling favors to Clinton Foundation donors," Judicial Watch's president Tom Fitton said in a statement.

"There needs to be a serious, independent investigation to determine whether Clinton and others broke the law."

Donald Trump, Clinton's Republican challenger in the race for president, called for the "corrupt" Clinton Foundation to be shut down during an interview Monday morning.
