[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]A new book, “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” may turn out to be devastating for Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton.
“Clinton Cash,” written by Hoover Institution senior fellow Peter Schweizer, will not hit bookstands until May 5, but is already making big news.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]”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,” Schweizer writes, according to the New York Times, which obtained an advance copy of the book.
The Times reports:
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
The Times further reports that the book states that “of the 13 [Bill] Clinton speeches that fetched $500,000 or more, only two occurred during the years his wife was not secretary of state.”[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]The description of the book on Amazon states:
In 2000, Bill and Hillary Clinton owed millions of dollars in legal debt. Since then, they’ve earned over $130 million. Where did the money come from? Most people assume that the Clintons amassed their wealth through lucrative book deals and high-six figure fees for speaking gigs. Now, Peter Schweizer shows who is really behind those enormous payments.
In his New York Times bestselling books Extortion and Throw Them All Out, Schweizer detailed patterns of official corruption in Washington that led to congressional resignations and new ethics laws. In Clinton Cash, he follows the Clinton money trail, revealing the connection between their personal fortune, their “close personal friends,” the Clinton Foundation, foreign nations, and some of the highest ranks of government.
Schweizer reveals the Clinton’s troubling dealings in Kazakhstan, Colombia, Haiti, and other places at the “wild west” fringe of the global economy. In this blockbuster exposé, Schweizer merely presents the troubling facts he’s uncovered. Meticulously researched and scrupulously sourced, filled with headline-making revelations, Clinton Cash raises serious questions of judgment, of possible indebtedness to an array of foreign interests, and ultimately, of fitness for high public office.
This is just the latest scandal involving Hilary Clinton, who is still covered by the dark clouds of Benghazi and Emailgate.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
