Government For Sale: Hillary Changed Stance on Trade Deal After Millions Donated to Clinton Foundation

If you want to know what sort of President Hillary Clinton will be, just take a look at how she changed her position on a trade deal after a foreign nation donated millions to her phony Clinton Foundation.

When she was Secretary of State, Hillary went from opposing a trade deal with Colombia to supporting it once she received over $100 million in donations to her faux charity.

The Clinton Foundation reportedly accepted millions of dollars from a Colombian oil company head before then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton decided to support a trade deal with Colombia despite worries of human rights violations.

The report in the International Business Times comes as Clinton readies an expected run for president. She’s been dogged by questions about whether foreign donations to her foundations could have influenced her official decisions.

The report centers on donations from Frank Giustra and the oil company that he founded, Pacific Rubiales. In a Wall Street Journal story from 2008, Giustra is described as a “friend and traveling companion” of former President Clinton who donated more than $130 million to Clinton’s philanthropies. He’s also a Clinton Foundation board member and has participated in projects and benefits for the foundation.

When workers at Pacific Rubiales decided to strike in 2011, the Columbian military reportedly used force to stop the strikes and compel them to return to work, IBT reports, citing the Washington office of Latin America, a human rights group. Those accusations of human rights violations were part of the criticism of the United States-Colombia Free Trade Promotion Agreement, which was passed by Congress later that year. Pacific Rubiales has repeatedly denied charges that it infringed on workers’ rights.

THIS is how she will be president. Who ever gives her the most money, that is who she will favor. With the Clintons it is government for sale.
