The Hustler Who Did Not Get ElectedPosted: March 24, 2017
PM Fund Manager:
When you are not in a position to wield power and broker deals for wealthy individuals, corporate entities and foreign Governments who stuff money into your bank account, the money flow stops. It just stops.
The first reports about the Clintons’ ‘pay for play’ piggy-bank were that the Clinton Global Initiative would be shut down. Now it’s being reported by Investor’s Business Daily that the entire Clinton Foundation will be laid to rest. Dave Kranzler
Like the broader pay-to-play attacks on the Clinton Foundation opponents accused Hillary Clinton’s State Department with giving Clinton Foundation donors first dibs on Haitian relief projects. While poor Haitians, displaced by a devastating hurricane, were living in tents for years, the Clintons were able to see that a luxury hotel was constructed.
The Clinton Foundation was little more than an influence-peddling scheme to enrich the Clintons, and had little if anything to do with “charity,” either overseas or in the U.S. That sound you heard starting in November was checkbooks being snapped shut in offices around the world by people who had hoped their donations would buy access to the next president of the United States.”
Daily Caller News Foundation:
One investigation revealed that Bill and Hillary Clinton took in at least $100 million from Middle East leaders.
The investigation by the Daily Caller News Foundation has uncovered a disturbing pattern of the Clintons’ raising money for the Clinton Foundation from regimes that have checkered records on human rights and that aren’t always operating in the best interests of the U.S.
And why not? There was a strong precedent for it in Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State. While serving as the nation’s top diplomat, the Clinton Foundation took money from at least seven foreign governments — a clear breach of Clinton’s pledge on taking office that there would be total separation between her duties and the foundation.
Emails that emerged made it clear that donors received special access and attention from Clinton and her top aides. An AP story found that more than half the private visitors Clinton received at the Department of State were donors to her family foundation.
