Saudi Arabia Has Funded 20% Of Hillary's Presidential Campaign, Saudi Crown Prince Claims

Tyler Durden's picture

In what may be the pinnacle of hypocrisy, moments ago Hillary Clinton, while speaking live on national security and addressing the Orlando shooting took some time from her constant bashing of the Second Amendment and calling for a ban on assault rifles, to say some less than kind words about Saudi Arabia whom it accused of supporting radical organizations. This is what she said:

The third area that demands attention is preventing radicalization and countering efforts by ISIS and other international terrorist networks to recruit in the United States and Europe. For starters, it is long past time for the Saudis, the Qataris and the Kuwaitis and others to stop their citizens from funding extremist organizations. And they should stop supporting radical schools and mosques around the world that have set too many young people on a path towards extremism. We also have to use all our capabilities to counter jihadist propaganda online. This is something that I spend a lot of time on at the State Department.

There is nothing wrong with that statement, as it is the whole truth - Saudi Arabia's involvement in supporting terrorism stretches from Sept 11 all the way through to ISIS - however, where there  is a big, and potentially law-breaking,  problem is what Jordan's official news agency, Petra News Agency, reported on Sunday citing the Saudi crown price, namely that Saudi Arabia is a major funder of Hillary Clinton’s campaign to become the next president of the United States.

As MEE notes, the Petra News Agency published on Sunday what it described as exclusive comments from Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman which included a claim that Riyadh has provided 20 percent of the total funding to the prospective Democratic candidate's campaign.

The report was later deleted and the news agency has not responded to requests for comment from Middle East Eye. However, the deletion took place too late, as the Washington-based Institute for Gulf Affairs managed to capture the report and has re-published the original Arabic Petra report, which quoted Prince Mohammed as having said Saudi Arabia had provided with “full enthusiasm” an undisclosed amount of money to Clinton.

The pdf of the report is shown below:


Below is a screenshot of the English report published, and then quickly deleted, by the Petra News Agency:


As a reminder, It is illegal in the United States for foreign countries to try to influence the outcome of elections by funding candidates. That appears not to have stopped the Saudis, however.

“Saudi Arabia always has sponsored both Republican and Democratic Party of America and in America current election also provide with full enthusiasm 20 percent of the cost of Hillary Clinton’s election even though some events in the country don’t have a positive look to support the king of a woman (sic) for presidency,” the report quoted Prince Mohammed as having said.

According to the US Federal Election commission, over the past two years Clinton has raised a little more than $211.8 million. 20% of this sum is $42.4 million.

The report was published (and then mysteriously deleted) on the eve of Prince Mohammed making an official visit to the United States. The Saudi Press Agency reported on Monday that the senior royal was due to fly to Washington where he will meet officials to discuss US-Saudi ties.

He will remain in the American capital until 16 June, when he will travel to New York for meetings with financial companies, the Saudi Gazette reported.

Prince Mohammed will discuss regional issues with American officials, and he will hold talks with the financial companies about his vision for diversifying Saudi Arabia’s economy away from oil dependency.

Links between Saudi Arabia and the Clinton family, including with Hillary’s campaign, are well reported. In 2008, it was revealed that the Gulf kingdom had donated between $10m and $25m to the Clinton Foundation, a charity set up by Hillary’s husband and former US President Bill Clinton.

Last year the Centre for Studies and Media Affairs at the Saudi Royal Court paid public relations firm the Podesta Group $200,000 for a month-long project to provide “public relations services”.

The Podesta Group was founded in 1988 by brothers John and Tony Podesta. John Podesta is the chair of Hillary Clinton’s campaign to become the next US president.

Finally, in connection to the Orlando shooting, the WSJ reported that according to a spokesman for Saudi Arabia’s interior ministry, the Orlando shooter, Omar Mateen visited the kingdom twice on pilgrimage.

Mateen visited Saudi Arabia in 2011 and again in 2012 to perform umrah, a religious pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca. The trips lasted eight and 10 days each.


U.S. and Saudi officials aren’t sure yet who Mr. Mateen met with during his visits or whether the trips were connected to the shooting.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign did not respond to MEE's request for comment at the time of publication. Considering Hillary hasn't given a full press interview in over 7 months, we doubt this will change.

This is why they fear Trump, they can't buy him and they know it. Clinton is just a Neocon that runs as a Democrat.

Yes, moar of that, please.  That's just what the Hillary campaign needs- all the people who have bought and paid for her from around the world talking about exactly how they bought and paid for her.  Tell us everything- go ahead, brag a little.


Bury the bitch.

"While Saudi Arabia and Boeing poured cash into the Clinton Foundation, Hillary Clinton's State Department approved enormous sales of Boeing fighter jets to the kingdom."

On Christmas Eve in 2011, Hillary Clinton and her closest aides celebrated a $29.4 billion sale of over 80 F-15 fighter jets, manufactured by U.S.-based Boeing Corporation, to Saudi Arabia. In a chain of enthusiastic emails, an aide exclaimed that it was “not a bad Christmas present.”

Hillary was overheard saying "They got their jets. Now they damn well better help me get elected."

...five of the questions I need to hear answers to before I would consider supporting Trump, or any politician.

4)  What are the similarities between unlimited campaign contributions and bribery, and what actions would you take to reform campaign finance, if elected?

Bribery is the act of giving money, goods or other forms of recompense to a recipient in exchange for an alteration of their behavior (to the benefit/interest of the giver) that the recipient would otherwise not alter. Bribery is defined by Black's Law Dictionary as the offering, giving, receiving, or soliciting of any item of value to influence the actions of an official or other person in charge of a public or legal duty.

Since they've given her so much money, can they require her to wear a full face veil? I mean really, nobody should have to look at that haggard face anymore...

"If you came across Hillary struggling in a raging river and you had to choose between rescuing her or taking a Pulitzer Prize winning photograph, what shutter speed would you choose?"

20% for Hillary's campaign.

20% more for Bill's trip to Fantasy Island with the underage slave girls.

jeff montanye's picture

you bring up a good point.  there is something transcendentally weak about running for  the president of the united states as the first woman to achieve that enormous achievement (we need more words for snow/achievement), while the actual skill you brought to the table was an infinite tolerance for cuckoldry and a nuanced, prescient take on enabling rape by alpha males}.

Trump reports to the Israeli lobby AIPAC and the Jewish neocons that pushed W to invade Iraq and killed 2 million people and caused an economic collapse in the US.

Pick your poison.

you may be so, so right.  trump, imo, is a presumed fraud (maybe 55-60 percent).  but the rest is a possibility.

I guess someone needs to call the Federal Election Commisson and inform them of the Saudi financial support for Hillary.  Might as well start one more investigation of Crooked Hillary.  Add another 20 years to her sentence for RICO, treason and classified information violations.

Uchtdorf's picture

The problem is it will take the FBI 20 years to investigate the allegations.

ZerOhead's picture

Forget the questions... they'd just lie to you anyway.


The simple thing to do is have the Saudis give the money directly to the tax exempt CLINTON FOUNDATION.

Problem solved plus no new laws are needed to be rewritten by lawyers to keep bribery legal for the bitch.

Son of Loki's picture

My guess is the Saudis are funding Schauble and Merkel also with huge sums of $$$$ deposited into the Secret Swiss Bank accounts. Otherwise i cant expalin why they are destroying their own culture and citizens.

thinkmoretalkless's picture

Exactly. Expecting a politician to give you a straight answer is akin to expecting BO to forgo a game of golf to address a national crisis or expect his wife to wait and fly with him to their vacation destination out of respect for the hardworking taxpayer. Would you believe every swinging dick at GS or JPM or the FED for that matter when it comes to your money? Read between the (lies) lines and spend your one vote wisely. This time it's a no brainier ....never Hillary.
