Goldman Sachs held out leasing an office space to an interested party in order to give the Clinton Foundation priority, according to an email released through WikiLeaks.

Laura Graham, chief operating officer and chief of staff to former President Bill Clinton, wrote to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s chief aide Huma Abedin to “touch base” regarding a potential new “office space” for the Clinton Foundation.

“I had a meeting and walk through for the additional space available at 77 Water Street,” Graham told Clinton’s chief aide.

Graham explained that Goldman had “an interested party,” and that if they want the space they will need to “move quickly.”

She then described how Goldman is giving the Clintons preferential treatment, and actively fending off the other potential buyer. “Goldman, because of their relationship with us, is delaying the drafting of a lease for this interested party until they get a better sense from us but they cannot hold them off too much longer,” Graham wrote.

The COO even said they have a Goldman member on the sideline waiting for the Clinton response: “In the meantime, Genzler via Goldman Sachs is awaiting our details to do test fit options.”

The Clintons are no stranger to the large American bank Goldman Sachs. Their standard speaking fee per Goldman event was $225,000.

Reports also surfaced Monday that Graham was on the verge of committing suicide due to the stress of serving under the  Clintons. (RELATED: Bill, Chelsea Drove Top Clinton Aid To Suicide)
