It’s totally sickening how Clinton takes money from countries (i.e. Saudi Arabia) which oppress women and execute gays then postures herself as the candidate for women. She is one cold hearted bitch.
A tip of the hat to Jonathan Chait for summarizing the headlines:
“The New York Times has a report about the State Department’s decision to approve the sale of Uranium mines to a Russian company that donated $2.35 million to the Clinton Global Initiative, and that a Russian investment bank promoting the deal paid Bill $500,000 for a speech in Moscow.
“The Washington Post reports that Bill Clinton has received $26 million in speaking fees from entities that also donated to the Clinton Global Initiative.
“The Washington Examiner reports, ‘Twenty-two of the 37 corporations nominated for a prestigious State Department award — and six of the eight ultimate winners — while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State were also donors to the Clinton family foundation.’
“And Reuters reports, ‘Hillary Clinton’s family’s charities are refiling at least five annual tax returns after a Reuters review found errors in how they reported donations from governments, and said they may audit other Clinton Foundation returns in case of other errors.'”
The first story is by far the most damning and it demands a thorough congressional investigation. It is also the most difficult to explain.
What the summary above leaves out is this: The Clintons gained much more than just a couple million dollars — $100 million was pledged to a Clinton Foundation initiative by the man at the center of this uranium deal. Far worse, the New York Times reports that “the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States.”
Ask yourself this: Would such a deal have happened without a former president greasing the skids and his secretary of state wife signing off on the deal? Watch this Fox News report to get a better understanding of this emerging scandal.
