Clinton Cash, A new book by Peter Schweizer follows the Clinton money trail, revealing the connection between their personal fortune, their “close personal friends,” the Clinton Foundation, foreign nations, and some of the highest ranks of government and how the cash they received for the Foundation was rewarded with favors from the state department.
Schweizer reveals the Clinton’s troubling dealings in Kazakhstan, Colombia, Haiti, and other places at the “wild west” fringe of the global economy. In this blockbuster exposé, Schweizer merely presents the troubling facts he’s uncovered. Meticulously researched and scrupulously sourced, filled with headline-making revelations, Clinton Cash raises serious questions of judgment, of possible indebtedness to an array of foreign interests, and ultimately, of fitness for high public office.
According to the NY Times' Amy Chozick who read an advance copy of the book, it claims
'that foreign entities who made payments to the Clinton Foundation and to Mr. Clinton through high speaking fees received favors from Mrs. Clinton’s State Department in return.
“We will see a pattern of financial transactions involving the Clintons that occurred contemporaneous with favorable U.S. policy decisions benefiting those providing the funds,” Mr. Schweizer writes.'
Of course the Clinton machine is already primed to trash the book whose publishing date is still three weeks away. But this book is different because rather than get information from "old friends" and other contacts Schweizer presents events and evidence and " meticulously documents his sources, including tax records and government documents."From 2001 to 2012, the Clintons’ income was at least $136.5 million, Mr. Schweizer writes, using a figure previously reported in The Post. “During Hillary’s years of public service, the Clintons have conducted or facilitated hundreds of large transactions” with foreign governments and individuals, he writes. “Some of these transactions have put millions in their own pockets.”
Peter Schweizer is the perfect person to write such a book. Among his other qualifications such as being founder and President of the Government Accountability Institute, a team of investigative researchers and journalists committed to investigating and exposing cronyism, misuse of taxpayer monies, and other governmental corruption or malfeasance, Peter Schweizer was the editor of Big Peace when I wrote for them a few years ago. As an editor he was a stickler for facts and back up, I am sure he demands the same from his own work.
When released this book is going to hurt the Clinton campaign in a big way.
