Foreign Money, Private Emails, Trips to Hundreds of Countries, Equals Hillary Clinton at her Sleazy Best

One of Hillary’s first stumbles on her road to become president was the amount of money she collected for giving speeches. Many complained it was an obscene amount of cash for just giving a speech and her response was she was donating the money to charity. Trouble was it turned out she was depositing the money into her own Clinton Foundation and I was the only blogger in the country that called it a form of money laundering. She was keeping the money for herself instead of giving to another charity she had no connection with. Little did I know that early scandal was the tip of the iceberg to follow.

National Journal reports “Follow the money.” That apocryphal phrase, attributed to Watergate whistle-blower “Deep Throat,” explains why the biggest threat to Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential dreams is not her emails. It’s her family foundation. That’s where the money is: corporate money, foreign money, gobs of money sloshing around a vanity charity that could be renamed “Clinton Conflicts of Interest Foundation.”

What about the emails? Hillary Clinton’s secret communications cache is a bombshell deserving of full disclosure because of her assault on government transparency and electronic security. But its greatest relevancy is what the emails might reveal about any nexus between Clinton’s work at State and donations to the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation from U.S. corporations and foreign nations.

Under fire, Bill Clinton said his namesake charity has “done a lot more good than harm”—hardly a ringing endorsement. One of his longest-serving advisers, a person who had worked directly for the foundation, told me the “longtime whispers of pay-to-play are going to become shouts.”

This person, a Clinton loyalist and credible source, has no evidence of wrongdoing but said the media’s suspicions are warranted. “The emails are a related but secondary scandal,” the source said. “Follow the foundation money.”
