Bill Clinton Tried To Give Paid Speeches To North Korea & Congo While Hillary Was Secretary Of State

With each passing day, it become clearer and clearer just what a crumbling charade of greed, cronyism and phony humanitarianism the Clinton family really is. In the latest revelation, we find out that Bill Clinton tried to get State Department support to deliver paid speeches to two of the most repressive regimes in the world: North Korea and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Apparently, the $48 million “Slick Willie” raked in during the four years Hillary was Secretary of State wasn’t enough to “pay the bills.”

We learn from ABC News:

ABC News has obtained State Department e-mails that shed light on Bill Clinton’s lucrative speaking engagements and show he and the Clinton Foundation tried to get approval for invitations related to two of the most repressive countries in the world — North Korea and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

 

While Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State, Bill Clinton earned speaking fees around the globe totaling more than $48 million — speeches that had to be vetted by the State Department to ensure there were no conflicts of interest with his wife’s work as America’s top diplomat. These newly revealed emails show speech requests that the State Department refused to approve.

 

One email sent in June 2012 to Clinton State Department chief of staff Cheryl Mills from Amitabh Desai, a foreign policy director at the Clinton Foundation, passed on an invitation for a speaking engagement in Brazzaville, Congo.

 

The catch? The dictators of Congo and the Democratic Republic of the Congo would both be attending — and required photos with Bill Clinton. The speaking fee? A whopping $650,000. 

 

A second email thread in May 2012 shows another potentially thorny event — subject line: “North Korea invitation.”

 

“Is it safe to assume [the U.S. Government] would have concerns about WJC accepting the attached invitation related to North Korea?” Desai wrote in an e-mail to Mills and two other State Department officials –Jake Sullivan, then-director of Policy Planning Staff and Deputy Chief of Staff, and Michael Fuchs, then a special assistant to the Secretary of State who now serves as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Strategy and Multilateral Affairs in the Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs.

 

Mills two-word response? “Decline it.”

 

But the Clinton Foundation followed up three weeks later, saying the invite came via Hillary Clinton’s brother Tony Rodham.

“We would be grateful for any specific concerns that we could share,” Desai wrote. “Tony is seeing WJC in a couple hours.”

 

The Office of President Clinton confirmed to ABC News that the former president did not deliver either of the speeches.

 

“As a matter of course, all requests were run by the State Department. Ultimately, the President did not give these speeches,” Angel Urena, press secretary in the Office of President Clinton, told ABC News.

Yeah, he didn’t give the speeches because the State Department denied him. If it was up to Bill, he would’ve been in the Congo taking pictures with forest elephants and feasting on human suffering with the nation’s dictator in a heartbeat.

Bill Clinton delivered 215 speeches totaling over $48 million in the four years Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.

“I did not have financial relations with that dictator.”

I haven't seen an organized media takedown like this since Watergate.

Hence the comparative adjective Nixonian that follows them everywhere now...guess Hill and Bill really are potentially outside the control matrix and apparently have to be politically neutered

My dick-tator had relations, though . . . .

Is that "dick-tator" or dick-taster?

Only Obama knows for sure.

The Best part is that the Clinton Foundation is a not for profit 501 c so they pay NO INCOME TAX.  Now go to workSheep and pay your taxes.  

We "CLintons" are broke you see and like the common folk.  Just look, we have almost no income attached to our Social Security numbers

Dike Clanton was her real name. Rode into town on that hot summer day riding a dark horse named Huma with a herd of feral pigs in the lead.

State dept. should have approved the trip/speech.  It would have been further evidence that the Clinton husband and wife team are two of the biggest sociopath POSs on the planet.

Speaking fees????  i liked it better when it was called bribery.

KnuckleDragger-X's picture

Bribery is soooo 20th century......

A 'protection racket' on one level, 'influence peddling' on another. Prevalent in O'Zero's organized community of Crook County, where non-made 'members' go to jail for it.

"Speaking fees????  i liked it better when it was called bribery. "

 

Indeed.

Only a complete fool would believe that the kind of people who have the bankrolls to afford to pay for these 'speeches' don't expect something more than an hour of happy talk for that kind of loot.

One has to ask:

WHAT DO THEY GET from the Clintons for that loot?

WHAT IS THE ROI on paying Bill 'to speak at an event'?

$48 million in 365 days works out to be a fairly undecent figure per hour of work IMHO. This is way beyond GREED, Mr. Gecko.

divedivedive's picture

And I'm sure that 48 million does not include the lear jets to get him there, not to mention the hotel stays for himself and staff, food etc. I'm sure we - as tax paying Americans - also pay for the Secret Service contingent that has to protect him on these income generating adventures.

Don't forget the Lolita Express costs, and the resulting litigation for molestation of minors, and slave trade Human Trafficking charges, when those that were molested finally step forward to press charges.

I sincerely doubt anyone survives the Clinton Murder Inc. machine, especially molested children.

America isn't fair anymore, fairness doctrine says; Hillary should be President, it's her turn, yet you people want to deny her her turn, by dredging up all this old stuff no one understands anyway,as the Preacher says, be Fair and go to Heaven, it is her turn let her have it!

Actually was over 4 years. So $12M a year / 365 = $1,369 an hour. just over $32K per day. Every day For 4 years.

And he wanted to do more speeches in the Congo and North Korea?

Was not surprised by the mention of Hillary's brother Hugh Rodham. Wonder what Hugh's "finder's fee" was going to be. At least Billy Carter was harmless.

It's understood that North Korea's dear leader has the largest, finest pornography collection on earth. Bill was looking forward to getting to know dear leader - maybe shoot some hoops with Dennis Rodman, knock down a few beers and sample dear leader's private parties...

You know what makes a great con artist successful?

Charisma

Everyone likes and trusts the great con man until they find out he or she is evil :)  And then there are those who would not believe, like those who still honor Adolph and Charles Manson.

People around the world have been deluded into thinking that the man or woman up there talking to them is not of the same species, they have two arms, two legs , a head and torso, no?

In people's quest for a savior to idolize, guys like Clinton, Obama, Trump, Bush and so on truly make hay :)

More than $223K a week for doing one or less appearances a week.

IF he speaks for full 1+1/2 hours he is closing on $150K and hour AT the lecturn. 

President makes $400K a year.

Bill is pulling in way more in TWO weeks than he did a year as President.

 

You can't tell me he is only selling speeches at those prices.

NO way.  Fuck NO.  Not buying it...

 

My God, Obama probably cannot wait to get out of office if even a quarter of that moolah awaits..

If you paid the Clintons well enough you could get photos of them chowing down on a live baby. There is nothing too scummy for them to do for money.

Now let's see what endorsement Hillary Rotten Clowntown added to these requests before Obama, in a rare visit to reality, turned them down.
