• DEVASTATING: How Hillary And Bill Clinton ‘Cashed’ In

    To no one’s surprise, the Clinton family foundation scandal just keeps getting worse and worse.

    A Bombshell report out from the New York Times exhaustively details how huge donations from Canadian and Russian mining companies flowed into the Clinton Foundation while those corporations had relevant business before the Hillary-run State Department, to approve a transaction that would give control of a Wyoming uranium mine to Russia:

    Even though Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration both agreed through something called a memorandum of understanding on full disclosure, the donations in question were never publicly reported–nor did the Obama administration have knowledge of them, contrary to the agreement struck between Hillary and the Obama administration when she took over at the State Department.

    And while all of this was happening, Bill Clinton was being paid big money to give speeches that had similarly involved interests before State.

    ABC News gives more details on how Bill Clinton’s speaking fees rose as Hillary Clinton’s influence expanded:

    After his wife became Secretary of State, former President Bill Clinton began to collect speaking fees that often doubled or tripled what he had been charging earlier in his post White House years, bringing in millions of dollars from groups that included several with interests pending before the State Department, an ABC News review of financial disclosure records shows.

    Where he once had drawn $150,000 for a typical address in the years following his presidency, Clinton saw a succession of staggering paydays for speeches in 2010 and 2011, including $500,000 paid by a Russian investment bank and $750,000 to address a telecom conference in China.

    “It’s unusual to see a former president’s speaking fee go up over time,” said Richard Painter, who served as chief ethics lawyer in the White House Counsel’s office under President George W. Bush. “I must say I’m surprised that he raised his fees. There’s no prohibition on his raising it. But it does create some appearance problems if he raises his fee after she becomes Secretary of State.”

    These new allegations all stem from the groundbreaking research found in the forthcoming book Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich.
