Between 2009 and 2013, when Hillary Clinton was serving as US secretary of state, the Clinton Foundation received at least $8.6 million from the Victor Pinchuk Foundation.
Ukraine oligarch Victor Pinchuk was involved in pay-to-play exchange with The Clinton Foundation.
In an email from President Clinton’s Director of Foreign Policy, Amitabh Desai, to Hillary Clinton’s inner circle (including Huma Abedin and John Podesta) we learn the Clinton Foundation’s biggest donor, billionaire Victor Pinchuk, was pushing Hillary Clinton's staff to set up a “private” meeting with Bill Clinton, or “bring together a few western leaders to show support for Ukraine”…with WJC (Bill Clinton) present at the event to show his commitment to “the county and for him.”
Pinchuk wanted leverage Bill Clinton’s presence to show future President Hillary Clinton was behind him.
The email exchange paints a picture of a Ukraine oligarch “relentlessly following up” to expose his connection to the Clinton family, given that (as Desai wrote that Pinchuk “is under Putin’s heel right now, feeling a great degree of pressure and pain for his many years of nurturing stronger ties with the West.”)
From 2009 to 2013, the Clinton Foundation received at least $8.6 million from the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, which is headquartered in Kiev.
