"Clinton Cash" confirmed by leftist-biased media !

Many statements in the excellent book: "Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich" ... were independently checked, and confirmed, by many reputable media outlets -- most with a leftist-bias who wanted to contradict the book, but could not.

The FBI should have been investigating the Clinton Foundation for conflict of interest, and possibly racketeering, but there is no evidence they are.

The Clinton Foundation is what I believe to be the largest slush fund in the history of American politics -- yet it will remain 'hidden in plain view' ... even as close to 90% of Foundation spending goes to salaries, travel, room & board and everything else you would call overhead.

The Foundation not a real charity in my opinion, it's a "charity" designed to enrich Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, their aides, their campaign staffers between campaigns, financial supporters, and other friends.

(1) The Clinton Foundation tried to hide a $2.35 million foreign donation from the head of the Russian uranium company that had business before Hillary Clinton’s State Department -- a clear violation of the Memorandum of Understanding with the Obama Administration.

The New York Times confirmed this.

Hillary Clinton violated the Obama Memorandum of Understanding to disclose all foreign donations during her tenure.

Ian Telfer, the head of the Russian-owned uranium company, Uranium One, which Hillary Clinton approved to acquire US uranium, made four individual hidden donations to the Clinton Foundation totaling $2.35 million, none of which appear in Clinton Foundation disclosures.

Bill Clinton was also paid $500,000 for a speech in Moscow paid for by a Kremlin-linked bank.

The New Yorker has confirmed confirms that Bill's speech was paid for by “a Russian investment bank that had ties to the Kremlin” at the time of the Uranium One deal.

“Why was Bill Clinton taking any money from a bank linked to the Kremlin while his wife was Secretary of State?” asked that liberal publication. 

    (1a) Hillary’s approval of the Russian takeover of Uranium One transferred 20% of all US uranium reserves to the Russian government.

The New York Times confirmed this.

They wrote: “The sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States.”

The Times also said the uranium transfer to Russia represented, at the time, a projected 50% of all future uranium output on US soil.

(2) Bill Clinton lied about hosting a 'secret' meeting with Frank Giustra and Kazakhstan officials from the nuclear company Kazatomprom in Clintons’ home in Chappaqua, New York.

New York Times Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Jo Becker confirmed this in a one-hour Fox News television special on Clinton Cash.

“When I first contacted both the Clinton Foundation -- Mr. Clinton’s spokesman -- and Mr. Giustra, they denied any such meeting ever took place,” said Becker.

“And then when we told them, ‘Well we already talked to the head of Kazatomprom, who not only told us all about the meeting, but actually has a picture of him and Bill at the home in Chappaqua, and that he proudly displayed it on his office wall.’ "

"They then acknowledged that yes, the meeting had taken place.”

(3) Hillary’s brother Tony Rodham sits on the board of a mining company that got an extremely rare “Gold Exploitation Permit” in Haiti as Hillary and Bill Clinton disbursed billions of US taxpayer dollars in Haiti after the earthquake.

The Washington Post confirmed this.

According to the Post, Rodham’s mining company “won one of the first two gold-mining permits the Haitian government had issued in more than 50 years."

(4) The Clinton Foundation tried to hide a foreign donation of two million shares of stock by a mining executive with business before Hillary’s State Department.

The Wall Street Journal confirmed this.

Canadian mining executive Stephen Dattels made a hidden donation of two million shares in Polo Resources.

“About two months later, the U.S. ambassador to Bangladesh pushed the energy adviser to that nation’s prime minister to allow ‘open pit mining,’ including in Phulbari Mines, where Polo Resources has a stake,” reports the Journal.

(5) Bill Clinton was paid many millions by a for-profit education company Laureate while the company benefited from an Increase in funding from Hillary’s State Department.

Bloomberg has confirmed this.

They wrote that that Bill Clinton was paid by “Laureate International Universities, part of Laureate Education, Inc,” a position he abruptly resigned from in early 2016.

Bloomberg wrote:
“in 2009, the year before Bill Clinton joined Laureate, the nonprofit received 11 grants worth $9 million from the State Department or the affiliated USAID.
In 2010, the group received 14 grants worth $15.1 million.

In 2011, 13 grants added up to $14.6 million.

The following year, those numbers jumped: IYF received 21 grants worth $25.5 million, including a direct grant from the State Department.”

The company nor the Clintons will release the exact amounts Bill received for working for the controversial for-profit education company.

(6) The Clinton Foundation has been forced to refile at least five years of annual tax returns.

Reuters has confirmed this.

They wrote: “Hillary Clinton’s family’s charities are refiling at least five annual tax returns” as “the foundation and its list of donors have been under intense scrutiny.”

(7) At least $26 million of the Clintons’ personal wealth comes from speaking fees by companies and organizations that are also major Clinton Foundation donors.

The Washington Post has confirmed this.

They wrote: “Bill Clinton was paid more than $100 million for speeches between 2001 and 2013, according to federal financial disclosure forms filed by Hillary Clinton during her years as a senator and as secretary of state.”

Of that $100 million, “Bill Clinton was paid at least $26 million in speaking fees by companies and organizations that are also major donors to the foundation he created after leaving the White House, according to a Washington Post analysis of public records and foundation date.”

(8) Bill Clinton delivered many speeches paid for by individuals and corporations with pending business before Hillary’s State Department.

ABC News has confirmed this.

They said: “Records supported the premise that former President Clinton accepted speaking fees from numerous companies and individuals with interests pending before the State Department."

ABC News said it found “an instance where paid and unpaid speaking appearances were conflated,”
(in the book Clinton Cash) but that Clinton Cash’s essential “premise” is “supported by records”.
