But, just like the big bucks Hillary Clinton received from Goldman Sachs, there was no quid pro quo. Buying future access? Isn’t that a tad cynical, Bitter Clinger?
From The Daily Caller:
A Daily Caller News Foundation investigation reveals that Bill and Hillary Clinton received at least $100 million from autocratic Persian Gulf states and their leaders, potentially undermining Democratic presidential candidate Hillary’s claim she can carry out independent Middle East policies.
As a presidential candidate, the amount of foreign cash the Clintons have amassed from the Persian Gulf states is “simply unprecedented,” says national security analyst Patrick Poole.
“These regimes are buying access. You’ve got the Saudis. You’ve got the Kuwaitis, Oman, Qatar and the UAE. There are massive conflicts of interest. It’s beyond comprehension,” Poole told TheDCNF in an interview.
Overall, the Clinton Foundation has received upwards of $85 million in donations from five Persian Gulf states and their monarchs, according to the foundation’s website.
This long, investigative article, which I guarantee will barely be mentioned, if at all on the pretend news, is one that you should read. Here are a few other juicy nuggets:
- The five countries that were so generous to Bill and Hill, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), have been called out repeatedly by human rights’ watchdogs for their mistreatment of workers, especially female domestic workers. In addition, of course, there is the overall treatment of women by these regimes. Hillary’s supporters have been screeching about what they hope American voters will consider Donald Trump’s disgusting comments about women. How do they reconcile her acceptance of millions from regimes that do a lot worse than say a woman is not a “10” anymore?
- The Clinton Foundation’s acceptance of cash from all these countries is now the subject of a second FBI investigation (the first one, of course, is the one about her illegal outlaw email server).
- Bill is a BFF and former business partner of Sheikh Mohammed bin-Rashid al-Maktoum, ruler of Dubai, and received “at least $15 million in “guaranteed payments” from the company, according to his personal tax returns from 2003 to 2008. The former president allegedly received another $20 million of “walking away money” to leave the partnership, according to The Daily Beast.”
- Bill received $1.1 million in speaking fees from the United Arab Emirates, which Hillary’s State Department approved. (Side note: UAE designates CAIR, the Muslim front group that is constantly whining about so-called “Islamophobia” a terrorist organization.)
I will be sending a link to this post to the Trump campaign with a suggestion that they prepare some pointed ads like the one they released earlier this week about Benghazi.
