Hillary Clinton has had a bad couple days with both the Washington Post, the Huffington Post and other outlets calling out the Clinton Foundation for suspected corruption though there is still no hint from the DOJ that they will investigate. Rep. Hastert was investigated for a whole lot less. It’s hard to see how what she might have done is any different from what Dean Skelos has done.
Rosalind Helderman, the Washington Post reporter, wrote on June 3rd that the Qatar-Clinton Foundation relationship isn’t just a case of hindsight. The Qataris who are known for influencing D.C. politics, have given the Clinton Foundation between $1 million and $5 million dollars over the years. The FIFA Qatari committee gave between $250,000 and $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation. It seems to be a very corrupt choice. The Clintons can’t always plead ignorance, can they?
As the Qataris poured cash into the foundation, it was becoming public knowledge in the UK that possible bribery permeated FIFA’s award of the 2022 World Cup to Qatar. Worker’s conditions for the venues built for the event were deplorable.
Then there are the Keystone XL favors that the HuffPo says were bought and paid for.
On May 31st, Paul Blumenthal and Ryan Grim at Huffington Post headlined, “Banks Behind Hillary Clinton’s Canadian Speeches Really Want The Keystone Pipeline,” and they reported that, “Two Canadian banks tightly connected to promoting the controversial Keystone XL pipeline in the United States either fully or partially paid for eight speeches made by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the period not long before she announced her campaign for president. Those speeches put more than $1.6 million in the Democratic candidate’s pocket.”
There is a history here if you go to the HuffPo link.
In yet another coincidence, Hillary Clinton’s State Department increased chemical arms sales to countries that gave to the Clinton Foundation and whose affiliated organizations gave outrageous speaking fees to Bill Clinton.
Coincidentally, the Clinton Foundation accepted millions of dollars from Swedish interests while the country was lobbying the State Department to forgo Iran sanctions that would threaten its economic interests. Sanctions were eased for many firms after the donations.
These donors certainly think they are buying favoritism.
On May 20, it was reported that during Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s tenure at the State Department, her political staff personally reviewed and negotiated the release of public records requested under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) — and in some cases blocked documents’ release, according to The Wall Street Journal.
She’s even corrupting the DNC with unfair influence. She has zero ethics and no sense of fair play. When will the DOJ investigate? This is crying out for an investigation.
