Clinton Corruption

Donald Trump sometimes says strange things that no professional politician would say, and is wrong (economically) to condemn trade balances with other nations.

But Trump can't compare with Hillary Clinton's most unique qualities:
(1) Hillary's bizarre open marriage with Bill Clinton, where they are both allowed to "see" other women, and

(2) Hillary Clinton is the most corrupt candidate for President in my lifetime!

Clinton Foundation-related corruption is best summarized, in detail, in the book "Clinton Cash" by Peter Schweizer.

I've heard a documentary based on that book can be found at for free viewing. 

Bill and Hillary Clinton went from being “dead broke” (her words) after leaving the White House in late January 2000 ... to a net worth of over $150 million in 2015 ... mainly by making speeches.

They also received about $2 billion of donations to their Clinton Foundation ... but almost all the money spent by the Foundation was for salaries and travel -- so it is really a stretch to call the Foundation a legitimate charity. 

Much of the Clinton family wealth was acquired from 2009 through 2015, while Mrs. Clinton was Secretary of State, or planning to be the next President.

Most of the wealth came from huge speaking fees (usually from Clinton Foundation donors).

    Clinton  Corruption  Example  #1
Canadian investor Frank Giustra's company Uranium One bought uranium mining concessions in Kazakhstan and the United States. 

The Russian government later wanted to buy Uranium One.

That purchase required approval from the Obama administration, given the importance of uranium for US nuclear power plants and weapons. 

The State Department approved the deal AFTER nine Uranium One shareholders made $145 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation. 

Bill Clinton received $500,000 in speaking fees from a Russian investment bank involved in the deal, around the same time. 

The State Department then approved the deal -- surprisingly giving Russia ownership of about 20% of all US uranium reserves.

     Clinton  Corruption  Example  #2
Bill Clinton was never hired to speak by TD Bank during his first eight years out of the White House.

Then TD Bank suddenly hired Bill for a string of speeches.

The speeches started four days after Hillary was nominated as Secretary of State.

Bill got over $2 million in speaking fees. 

And TD Bank just happened to be the single largest shareholder in the Keystone XL pipeline.

That pipeline needed State Department approval before it could be built. 

Hillary Clinton stunned environmentalists by supporting the pipeline.

    Clinton  Corruption  Example  #3
The Washington Post confirmed that Hillary's brother, Tony Rodham, sat on the board of a small mining company that got a rare, lucrative gold mining permit in Haiti.

That permit was one of only two permits Haiti awarded in the past 50 years.

The permit was awarded while Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was sending billions of taxpayer dollars to Haiti after the 2010 earthquake.
