In his sarcastic post of April 20, “Coyote Ugly,” our Trail Dust made reference to 2016 presidential aspirant Hillary Clinton and her husband having “received massive amounts of bribe money from China’s bellicose military leaders and a variety of oil-rich, Christian-hating muslims, including the muslim brotherhood.”
The source of that stunning information is a new book that will not hit shelves until May 5, but is already making news. As reported by Amy Chozick for The New York Times, April 19, 2015, Peter Schweizer’s Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich is 186-page investigation of donations made to the Clinton Foundation by foreign entities which “is proving the most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle still in its infancy.”
The timing of Clinton Cash is problematic for multi-millionaire Hillary as she begins a campaign to position herself as a “champion for everyday Americans.”
Schweizer writes mainly in the voice of a neutral journalist and meticulously documents his sources, including tax records and government documents, while leaving little doubt about his view of the Clintons. Schweizer is a research fellow at the prestigious Hoover Institution; the founder and president of the Government Accountability Institute, a team of investigative researchers and journalists committed to investigating and exposing cronyism, misuse of taxpayer monies, and other governmental corruption or malfeasance; and a former speechwriting consultant to President George W. Bush.
The book, an advance copy of which was obtained by The New York Times, asserts that foreign entities who made payments to the Clinton Foundation and to Bill Clinton through high speaking fees, received favors in return from the State Department via then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In the words of Schweizer:
“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.”
The New York Times points out that although Hillary’s campaign aides have, in the past, been “adept in swatting down critical books as conservative propaganda,” Schweizer’s Clinton Cash “is potentially more unsettling, both because of its focused reporting and because major news organizations including The [New York] Times, The Washington Post and Fox News have exclusive agreements with the author to pursue the story lines found in the book.”
Additionally, members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, including Rand Paul and Marco Rubio who have also entered the 2016 presidential ring, have been briefed on the book’s findings, and its contents have already made their way into several of the Republican presidential candidates’ campaigns.
In the wake of news of Schweizer’s book Clinton Cash, the Clinton Foundation belatedly revised its policy to prohibit “donations” by countries in the Middle East (read: oil-rich Arabs and Muslims) and to allow donations from countries like Germany, Canada, the Netherlands and Britain.
Ironically, Clinton Cash will be released the same day Bill and Chelsea Clinton will host the Clinton Global Initiative gathering with donors in the Islamic North African country of Morocco, the culmination of a foundation trip to several African nations. (A chapter in Clinton Cash is titled “Warlord Economics: The Clintons Do Africa.”)
