Bill Clinton once secretly accepted a million-dollar check from the nation of Qatar, emails uncovered in the latest Wikileaks release reveal.

In an email from 2012 the Clinton Foundation's director of foreign policy, Amitabh Desai, wrote, "Would like to see WJC William Jefferson Clinton 'for five minutes' in NYC, to present $1 million check that Qatar promised for WJC's birthday in 2011."

Desai was writing to Clinton Foundation officials in order to provide a "summary of key points from each meeting" with "Ambassadors from Qatar, Brazil, Peru, Malawi, and Rwanda, in Washington, DC."

According to the Clinton Foundation website, Qatar donated somewhere between $1,000,000 to $5,000,000 to the Clinton family's foundation.

Breitbart noted that "many of those high-dollar donations came flooding in while Hillary Clinton was serving as Secretary of State."

The email was sent to multiple Clinton aides and also discussed the Clinton Foundation in Haiti, an aspect of the organization that has been widely criticized.

"Qatar would welcome our suggestions for investments in Haiti — particularly on education and health," Desai wrote. "They have allocated most of their $20 million but are happy to consider projects we suggest. I'm collecting input from CF Haiti team."

Ézili Dantò, a Haitian civil rights activist, said the Clinton Foundation enabled a "pay to play" scenario, according to The Daily Caller.

Author Jerome Corsi claimed that the Clintons were using their foundation as a "personal piggy bank" and that they directed benefits from money donated to earthquake victims in India and Haiti for their own personal gain.

Reps for the Clinton Foundation have denied any impropriety.
