• New Book ‘Clinton Cash’ Could Threaten Hillary’s Campaign

    As Hillary Clinton is set to make her first trip to New Hampshire as a presidential candidate, the New York Times is reporting on a forthcoming blockbuster book that “meticulously” details how foreign donations made to the Clinton Foundation heavily influenced decisions Hillary made while she served as Obama’s secretary of state.

    “We will see a pattern of financial transactions involving the Clintons that occurred contemporaneous with favorable U.S. policy decisions benefiting those providing the funds,” Mr. Schweizer, author of Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich writes according to the New York Times.

    Here’s more on this bombshell from the New York TImes:

    The Republican Rand Paul has called its findings “big news” that will “shock people” and make voters “question” the candidacy of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

    “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” by Peter Schweizer — a 186-page investigation of donations made to the Clinton Foundation by foreign entities — is proving the most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle still in its infancy.

    The book, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times, asserts that foreign entities who made payments to the Clinton Foundation and to Mr. Clinton through high speaking fees received favors from Mrs. Clinton’s State Department in return.

    Peter Schweizer is the President of the Government Accountability Institute and is the author of New York Times bestseller Throw Them All Out, which exposed insider trading among members of Congress.

    Schweizer chronicles instances of pay-to-play by both Hillary and Bill Clinton including “a free-trade agreement in Colombia that benefited a major foundation donor’s natural resource investments in the South American nation, development projects in the aftermath of the Haitian earthquake in 2010, and more than $1 million in payments to Mr. Clinton by a Canadian bank and major shareholder in the Keystone XL oil pipeline around the time the project was being debated in the State Department.”

    A Clinton campaign spokesman, Brian Fallon, said Schweizer’s new book is nothing more than the “Republicans’ coordinated attack strategy on Mrs. Clinton” whereby “twisting previously known facts into absurd conspiracy theories.”

    “It will not be the first work of partisan-fueled fiction about the Clintons’ record, and we know it will not be the last,” Fallon added according to the Times

    Hillary Clinton is already battling a wave of negative press surrounding her hidden email server, erased emails, and a perception of secrecy and elitism.

    Clinton Cash is set to hit shelves May 5.
