Secretary Of State For Hire: Hillary Clinton Made Millions From Foreign Donors In Exchange For "Favors"

Tyler Durden's picture

That the Clintons have made millions of dollars from speaking fees is no secret: just last summer it was revealed that the former president was paid $104.9 million for delivering 542 speeches around the world between January 2001 and January 2013, when Hillary left her job as secretary of state.

 

What is not known, and what will be revealed in a new book "Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” by Peter Schweizer, is something far more sinister: foreign entities made payments to the Clinton Foundation and to Mr. Clinton through high speaking fees expected, and received, favors from Mrs. Clinton’s State Department in return.

As the NYT reports, the "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."

“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 writes.

 

His examples include 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.

This means that during her tenure as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton may or may not have been working in the best interest of the US population; she was, however, certainly working in the best interest of the biggest Clinton Foundation donor du jour. And she was communicating on her personal, unsupervised, and unrecorded Blackberry while she was doing it.

Slowly, all the pieces of Hillary's public service are falling into place. Very lucrative public service.

Naturally, the Hillary campaign has a prepared "response", a response we have heard countless times when faced with a challenger who has no facts on their side: immediate accusations of "conspiracy theories."

"A campaign spokesman, Brian Fallon, called the book part of the Republicans’ coordinated attack strategy on Mrs. Clinton “twisting previously known facts into absurd conspiracy theories,” and he said “it will not be the first work of partisan-fueled fiction about the Clintons’ record, and we know it will not be the last.”

There is one problem: Schweizer "writes mainly in the voice of a neutral journalist and meticulously documents his sources, including tax records and government documents."

We for one can't wait to get access to said sources, especially when it comes to tracking down the motivation and impetus behind the biggest foreign donor to the Clinton Foundation of them all, the one listed below...

... and further uncovering just what "favors" the State Department under Hillary (and later) returned to said donor... although we do have an idea or two.

"I'll give you one hundred million dollars not to threaten to blow me or show me your ass.  Speaking of which, can you find some looser fitting garments?  And make me part of the NWO as a bonus? Thank you.  You have my vote"  -foreign donors to Hillary.

$10,000,000 from Ukraine benefactors for what???
A coup of a democratically elected President, that's what.
Fairly cheap if you ask me. I would have asked for a billion.

National politicians to the oligarchs are the current equivalent of local judges and police to the mob.  The real money goes to guys who control the national politicians.

LMAO, you're assuming that overweight, control freak, militant feminist monster has a conscience to care about the death and destruction her lust for wealth and power has created.

I'm thinking the DNC is running her with every intention of her losing; that way the chaos can be blamed on the Republican who wins. Like it makes any difference which party wins, for we assuredly will lose either way.

But not if your name is Clinton.....

 

Racketeering refers to criminal activity that is performed to benefit an organization such as a crime syndicate. Examples of racketeering activity include extortion, money laundering, loan sharking, obstruction of justice and bribery.

 

 

A racket is a service that is fraudulently offered to solve a problem, such as for a problem that does not actually exist, that will not be put into effect, or that would not otherwise exist if the racket did not exist. Conducting a racket is racketeering.[1] Particularly, the potential problem may be caused by the same party that offers to solve it, although that fact may be concealed, with the specific intent to engender continual patronage for this party. An archetype is the protection racket, wherein a person or group indicates that they could protect a store from potential damage, damage that the same person or group would otherwise inflict, while the correlation of threat and protection may be more or less deniably veiled, distinguishing it from the more direct act of extortion.

Racketeering is often associated with organized crime, and the term was coined by the Employers' Association of Chicago in June 1927 in a statement about the influence of organized crime in the Teamsters union.[2]

 

On October 15, 1970, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (18 U.S.C. §§ 1961–1968), commonly referred to as the "RICO Act", became United States law. The RICO Act allowed law enforcement to charge a person or group of people with racketeering, defined as committing multiple violations of certain varieties within a ten-year period. The purpose of the RICO Act was stated as "the elimination of the infiltration of organized crime and racketeering into legitimate organizations operating in interstate commerce". S.Rep. No. 617, 91st Cong., 1st Sess. 76 (1968). However, the statute is sufficiently broad to encompass illegal activities relating to any enterprise affecting interstate or foreign commerce.

Section 1961(10) of Title 18 provides that the Attorney General of the United States may designate any department or agency to conduct investigations authorized by the RICO statute and such department or agency may use the investigative provisions of the statute or the investigative power of such department or agency otherwise conferred by law. Absent a specific designation by the Attorney General, jurisdiction to conduct investigations for violations of 18 U.S.C. § 1962 lies with the agency having jurisdiction over the violations constituting the pattern of racketeering activity listed in 18 U.S.C. § 1961.[3]

In the U.S., civil racketeering laws are also used in federal and state courts.

 

The specific goal of RICO is to punish the use of an enterprise to engage in certain criminal activities. A person who uses an enterprise to engage in a pattern of racketeering may be convicted under the RICO criminal statute (18 U.S.C.A. § 1963). An enterprise is defined as "any individual, partnership, corporation, association, or other legal entity, and any union or group of individuals associated in fact although not a legal entity." A pattern is defined as "at least two acts of racketeering activity, one of which occurred after the effective date of [RICO's passage] and the last of which occurred within 10 yearsafter commission of a prior act of racketeering activity."


LetThemEatRand's picture

The main purpose of RICO was to criminalize being part of an "enterprise" of organized crime.  The law was intended to expose the soldiers in the enterprise to the full wrath of federal law, roughly equivalent to the penalty for being the Kingpin.  The idea was to cause the lower rung guys to turn on the higher rung guys.  So a guy who fences for the mob could be charged with RICO activity, and face life in prison because he is part of the enterprise.  The Clintons are not Kingpins, but they sure as fuck are part of the enterprise.  Of course, the Clintons and the people for whom they fence are exempt from these sorts of laws.

macholatte's picture

 

Bill Clinton is a definition of a Kingpin.

The H Clinton private email issue is a criminal activity that went on for a period of years, thereby fitting into the RICO statute.  Add t that the scam of laundering money from speeches where the money went to the charitable organization which supports the Clintons and now the criminal activity, for a period of years, of selling political favors for donations and there you have it. Organized Crime.

Racketeering is also a very apt description of the IRS, CIA, FBI, DOJ, or any other alphabet soup agency of the US Gov that you want to apply it to.

Here's some more hilarity from her campaign ad: (Hillary has) "...fought children and families her whole career."

And she's never lost a fight.

Some have been close though, and she felt (what difference does it make?) she had to resort to some unsavory maneuvers such as the Arkansas Razorback and the Mena Crotch Foster.

When they keep hitting higher levels of corruption it should cause a bit more alarm. Dulling our sense of shock is what this is all about. Reminds me of the old Soviet days when getting drunk(er) was the salve that soothed the sharp edge of blatant in your face speak up and get beat down by the secret police kind of corruption.

One would expect that those kinds of things would be illegal, in addition to unethical. I don't see any attorney general or future attorney general stepping up to do their duty and arrest her.

The message that they are trying to teach us clearly appears to be that all government officials are beyond contempt and we can expect no ethical or moral application of just laws in this country... or from the UN and the world (which is just as corrupt and beyond contempt).

Message received.

Hey, if she's that extraordinarily corrupt - which she is - and doesn't get put in jail for it, just imagine what she'll do to our "enemies."  Although peace-loving democracies seem to be Hilary's(!) enemies.  And she did light the Middle East on fire then fled.  Uh, oh... Everybody is an enemy of Monica Lewinsky's ex-boyfriend's wife.
