Leaked Emails Expose Clinton Foundation 'Pay-To-Play' With Oligarch "To Show Support For Ukraine"

Wikileaks latest dump shows Ukraine oligarch Victor Pinchuk involved in pay-to-play exchange with The Clinton Foundation.

Wikileaks has just released another 1,135 John Podesta emails, bringing the total to 43,104 with seven days left until the November 8th US elections.

The latest release shows more Clinton Foundation pay-to-play arrangements, not with Moroccan kings or Saudi princes, but with a Ukraine oligarch.

In an email from President Clinton’s Director of Foreign Policy, Amitabh Desai, to Hillary Clinton’s inner circle (including Huma Abedin and John Podesta), we see the Clinton Foundation’s biggest donor, billionaire Victor Pinchuk, push Hillary Clinton staff to either set up a “private” meeting with Bill Clinton (aka WJC), or “bring together a few western leaders to show support for Ukraine”…with WJC present at the event to show his commitment to “the county [sic] and for him [Victor Pinchuk].”

We are betting that Pinchuk was planning on leveraging Bill Clinton’s presence to display that the future President (via her husband) was fully behind the oligarch and his faltering plan to pivot west.

The email exchange paints a picture of a Ukraine oligarch “relentlessly following up” to expose his connection to the Clinton family, given that (as Desai wrote) Pinchuk “is under Putin’s heel right now, feeling a great degree of pressure and pain for his many years of nurturing stronger ties with the West.”

It’s important to note that Pinchuk was a big supporter of the Maidan coup…a foreign policy debacle that Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland (another Hillary Clinton state department protege) helped spearhead.

From 2009 up to 2013 (the year the Ukrainian coup erupted), the Clinton Foundation received at least $8.6 million from the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, which is headquartered in Kiev.

Foreign Donors to Clinton Foundation by Ranking:

Ukraine: $10.0 million
England: $8.4
Saudi Arabia: $7.3 million
Germany: $6.7 million
Ireland: $6.5 million
India: $5.0 million
Canada: $4.5 million
Argentina: $2.0 million
United Arab Emirates: $1.4 million
China: $1.3million

Team HRC – we’ll get back to you on this

Are folks comfortable offering Victor a private meeting on one of those dates? At this point I get the impression that although I keep saying WJC cares about Ukraine, Pinchuk feels like WJC hasn’t taken enough action to demonstrate that, particularly during this existential moment for the county and for him.

RT further reports on the pay-to-play involving Pinchuk and The Clinton Foundation…

In 2008, Viktor Pinchuk, who made a fortune in the pipe-building business, pledged a five-year, $29-million commitment to the Clinton Global Initiative, a program that works to train future Ukrainian leaders “to modernize Ukraine.” The Wall Street Journal revealed the donations the fund received from foreigners abroad between 2009-2014 in their report published earlier this week .


Several alumni of the program have already graduated into the ranks of Ukraine’s parliament, while a former Clinton pollster went to work as a lobbyist for Pinchuk at the same time Clinton was working in government.


Between 2009 and 2013, the very period when Hillary Clinton was serving as US secretary of state, the Clinton Foundation appears to have received at least $8.6 million from the Victor Pinchuk Foundation.


That places Ukraine as the leading contributor among foreign donators to the Clinton Foundation.


The Pinchuk foundation said its donations to the Clinton-family organization were designed to make Ukraine “a successful, free, modern country based on European values.” It went on to remark that if Pinchuk was hoping to lobby the US State Department about Ukraine, “this cannot be seen as anything but a good thing,” WSJ quoted it as saying.


However, critics have pointed to some disturbing aspects regarding the donations, including the coincidence of the Ukrainian crisis, which began in November 2013, and the heavy amount of cash donations being made to the Clinton Foundation on behalf of wealthy Ukrainian businessmen.

Ukrops know what they have and seem to be able to survive their Third World status. The problem is USSA doesn't fully comprehend how complete the gangrene in the system is.

It ain't just the drug running redneck pedophile slash lesbian shakedown duo that is rotten in USSA.

THAT's ALL?!?!?!?!     

OMG, push the self-destruct mechanism.  The sky is falling.  Arrest everyone!!!!

What a joke.   THAT's all we have here. 

Fake controversy to hype up click-bait bullshit.  Wow.  Wikileaks is playing ZH, Breitbart, Infowars, and America like a fiddle.  Drip Drip PODESTA emails to hype up non-stories.  Either they have the real bombshell for the next few days, or everyone got into a hissy fit over not much.   Most of these email leaks are lame stories wrapped up to make them look worse than they really are.  

2016 - sadly, the year ZH JUMPED THE SHARK and desperate people jumped with them.  

My favorite is the ducks from project veritas!   hahaha! 

If you actually believe Trump is going to "fix america" it shows your desperation and your ignorance of how the world actually works.  

TRUMP is almost worse than an oligarch, he is a WANNA-BE oligarch who has spent his entire life wanting to be one.  AND he will sell us all out to get there. 

2016 - the year ZH pushed/tricked you into voting for the oligarchy directly.  Hypocrits.

And this is how you know.... instead of being leary of both candidates, hitting them both, and keeping both in check.  they are blindly pro-trump just as much as huffingtonpost is pro-hillary. 

Keep drinking the cool aid but some of these new tylers poisoned the well.

Gotta love morally reprehensible libfucktards with a finger in each ear screaming: "Nothing to see here", "Its all Comey's/Trump's/Putin's fault","Look - a squirrel" adfuckingnauseum that is playing out amongst the "persecuted" Dem affilliates on the news.

There's living in denial, but Jesus wept, the lot of you are starting to make my skin crawl - its like a Uriah Heep convention for the insidiously fucked in the head supporting a criminally insane cult leader. And that is all in the public domain now. Not even debatable. Mind you, someone the other day said 10% of Americans think HRC is trustworthy and 14% believe Bigfoot exists, which points to where her support base is.

Trump for President 2016

Hillary for Prison 2017-2116 (99 years has a nice ring to it)

Assange for Nobel Peace Prize* 2017

and b) potentially being the single biggest influence in stopping said WW, with this huge fucking spotlight on the Cockroach Foundation.


Looking at this situation unravelling by the day, here's an interesting conjecture:

At this moment in time the most powerful person in the world resides in an embassy in London.

Hands down.

Kudos to the Tylers for doing a truly incredible job in playing a very real, key role in the ongoing exposure and destruction of not only a filthy, venal political machine, but also a frightening, disgusting American media propaganda machine.  I am in awe as you methodically blast away at the edifice of lies and send the coackroaches scurrying.

Thank you for your doggedness, your courageousness, and your very hard work, and for providing the marvelous ZH platform.

Yes we can.. I couldn't agree more.  And here I thought when I stumbled upon this website many years ago, they were going to expose the shitheads in the financial world and tell the truth.. Well, they stepped up their game and exposed the whole ugly enchilada.  Cheers Tylers

Observation of increased aggravation of the trolls, on all fronts, indicates co-financing aligned with Team Hilldog.

It's all just excuses that try to justify this moral monster.

You mean Hunter Biden that got kicked out of the Navy in Feb 2014 for cocaine abuse and joined Burisma in April 2014? 

Well seems he is trying to pull a Burisma in the Baltics (EU) as well now. Did he fail in Ukraine perhaps, or is he trying to do both?

Basically a protection racket using US State resources and bribery for private financial gain - Gas Industry job and asset-stripping - privatisation next year of the gas company in the Baltics


As for the Burisma thing apparently Pyatt was outraged when Biden jnr joined Burisma because the Brits had already frozen some oligarch assets of Burisma and that would need to be overturned, which he opposed strongly.

Amerikkka is the whore of Babylon that will be destroyed.


I dis agree. Read my above post. America wasnt usuing the clinton foundation. Hildabeast (CF)was usuing america! Abusing  her position of power, to accept bribes ($30 mil.)in return for favors(coup and i bet part of the deal was the $100 plus mil. in nonlethal aid) So the american taxpayer footed the bill for all the costs of the coup and all the stuff weve given them, $100s of mil. a year in aid, and the CF got paid for it! Sounds like a pretty sweet deal. This is what happens when people abuse their position of power to enrich themselves. Disgusting. She has soooo much blood on her hands. Diabolical and disturbing. Im sure she had obaminations blessing too.

While I don't disagree with much of your sentiment... your continual use of bold, all caps words is very annoying such that I don't bother reading your posts any more.

Further, please spare us the religious preaching. I respect your entitlement to believe whatever the hell you want to believe... provided you don't try to force your belief system down the throats of others.

If you want to be heard, please consider how you communicate your message.

And if my message is meaningless to you then... GET FUCKED!

everybody in DC has figured out Putin is where he is today because he's been reading HRC's email since 2010. Makes him look like a pretty good "chessplayer" as so many on ZH have observed. Bear in mind Putin did NADA until HRC became Secretary of State. All of a sudden he grows a brain and balls?!!

The Clinton Foundation is a national and international Tammany Hall. Its roots are in the early 1980's tho-and the Clintons grabbed control in the late '90's

The stupid Ukrainians are reaping what they have sown.

They fell for the US/NATO bullshit hook, line and sinker by overthrowing their democratically elected president, playing along with an American-backed coup, listened to the swan-song sung by Nudelmann et al and fell for the propaganda fairytale regarding the non-existant "invasion" by Russia.

They even gave their national wealth in the form of ca. 5000 tons of gold to the Americans for "safe keeping". Now how dumb is that? That gold is gone forever. (See Germany's gold, for example.)

The only real hope for Ukraine is to kick US/NATO out, recall their ousted government and hang all the bastards who started and supported this mess in the first place.

JohninMK's picture

I thought it was 49 tons of gold. It certainly seems to have left the country via a handful of trucks to the airport.

To move 5000 tons would be a huge and very visable logistical exercise and would have been of sufficient import for the Russians to have become involved.

Erek's picture

Whatever the amount, the Ukrainians have no gold left except whats in their teeth.

Without anything of real value in their vault they are most likely fucked economically for a long time.

Justin Case's picture

That's what I recall, 49 tons air lifted to the FED. Then when they wanted money from the IMF, they were told to buy some gold to back the currency.

Idk. Its pretty sick and twisted to start a coup, then civil war with thousands dead(still ongoing), using your state dept. assets of the ussa, just because some guy you dont even like or know that well gave you a pile of cash. This is even worse than i thought. I thought she did it just uotta spite and contempt for russia. Little did we know there was almost $30 mil. bucks in it for her. Thats called treason. This is the kind of stuff i was taught as a kid didnt happen in the ussa. Only in CORRUPT third world dumps. Wow, look how low our nation has stooped. This is despicable. She should be executed just for this! Forget all the other sh@t. Im getting to the point idk if i want to know all the rest of her and bubbas atrocities. Especially if there really are kids involved. I think we have enough now to put them both away for good.

Ps....and obamination is still out campaigning for her. Absolutly no shame.

When you lose that feeling of shyness, of bashfulness, of embarassment, then you have no shame. That is the very definition of america today. People who have no shame, therefore, they do whatever it is that they want to do. Sickening.

A Massachusetts law firm has been accused of funneling funds to the Democrats through an massive and illegal straw-donor scheme.

A growing number of party politicians are now returning donations from Thornton Law after it was found that the firm's partners received bonuses that matched their political donations in what may be one of the largest schemes ever revealed.

An investigation found that partners donated nearly $1.6 million to mostly Democratic committees and candidates, including Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, from 2010 through 2014.

During that same period, the lawyers received $1.4 million listed as 'bonuses,' including more than 280 in amounts that precisely matched their donations.

Some of them were supposedly reimbursed just 10 days after their money was sent to the party.

"...while a former Clinton pollster went to work as a lobbyist for Pinchuk at the same time Clinton was working in government"

A pollster gets into the lobbying biz.  Sounds about right.  Some pollsters these days are in the biz not of measuring, but of influencing.

They're kinda like real estate appraisers.  If they fail to hit the needed numbers, the work dries up.
