Hillary’s Politics- Pay to Play
In recent releases of Hillary Clinton Aide Huma Abedin’s emails, it was found that those who donated to the Clinton Foundation were given “expedited, direct” access to the Clintons.
Huma Abedin and the “Clinton Family Matters”
Judicial Watch released 725 documents they obtained in a request. Huma Abedin, who by the way, was editor for a radical Muslim publication created by her mother for 12 years, admitted in a sworn deposition that she was asked to do “Clinton Family Matters” in addition to her duties as an aide.
Keep in mind with this information, Douglas Band is a Clinton Foundation Executive.
Judicial Watch wrote:
Included among the Abedin-Band emails is an exchange revealing that when Crown Prince Salman of Bahrain requested a meeting with Secretary of State Clinton, he was forced to go through the Clinton Foundation for an appointment.
Abedin advised Band that when she went through “normal channels” at State, Clinton declined to meet. After Band intervened, however, the meeting was set up within forty-eight hours. According to the Clinton Foundation website, in 2005, Salman committed to establishing the Crown Prince’s International Scholarship Program (CPISP) for the Clinton Global Initiative.
And by 2010, it had contributed $32 million to CGI. The Kingdom of Bahrain reportedly gave between $50,000 and $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation. And Bahrain Petroleum also gave an additional $25,000 to $50,000.
Also included among the Abedin-Band emails is an exchange in which Band urged Abedin to get the Clinton State Department to intervene in order to obtain a visa for members of the Wolverhampton (UK) Football Club, one of whose members was apparently having difficulty because of a “criminal charge.”
Band was acting at the behest of millionaire Hollywood sports entertainment executive and President of the Wasserman Foundation Casey Wasserman. Wasserman has donated between $5 million and $10 million to the Clinton Foundation through the Wasserman Foundation.
You pay or you don’t get to play
So we have a major pay-to-play scheme by Hillary Clinton that reached into governments of other nations, as well as the pockets some of the wealthiest people in the world. And these latest releases are only the tip of the proverbial iceberg.
- Clinton Foundation donors got weapons deals.
- Sleepovers in the Clinton White House were costly- people who did it are still writing checks even after the Clintons were out of the White House. Today it costs people a mere $400 to have an overnight stay in the White House, but you are not supposed to have to contribute to any foundation to do it.
The Center for Public Integrity wrote in 2015,
The Center for Public Integrity published the first list of donors who nabbed a night in the Clinton White House — and whose stays sparked outrage and investigations — in its 1996 report, “Fat Cat Hotel.”
A couple of days ago, Hillary promised that if she was elected President, the Clinton Foundation would no longer take foreign donations. That’s what she said just prior to becoming Secretary of State. Bill Clinton promised that he would step down from the board of the Foundation as well. We’ve heard it all before.
