Clinton Raked in Money From Companies Seeking Influence

The Clinton Foundation is nothing more than a pay-to-play slush fund.

More proof that the Clinton Foundation was never anything more than a pay-to-play slush fund for the world’s rich and powerful: After the Associated Press analyzed the places Hillary Clinton delivered paid speeches (for hundreds of thousands of dollars a pop), it found most of the banks and larger corporations were also heavily involved in politics. The AP reports, “Federal records show almost all the 82 corporations, trade associations and other groups that paid for or sponsored Clinton’s speeches have sought to influence the government — lobbying, bidding for contracts, commenting on federal policy or contacting State Department officials or Clinton herself when she was secretary of state.” We’re shocked — shocked.

To date, the Clinton campaign has not released transcripts of those speeches and Hillary has steadfastly refused to do so. That’s not surprising, given that attendees of those speeches have said the remarks were glowing and complimentary of big banks like Goldman Sachs, and in a battle against Bernie Sanders’ anti-Wall Street populism, she can’t have that come out. As Clinton once humble-bragged, she and her husband left the White House “dead broke.” That was an obviously phony attempt to pander to the rest of us commoners, but even if it weren’t, the Clintons have turned their influence into vast wealth thanks to the dozens of corporations who invested in them, hoping to get returns when the Clintons once again returned to positions of power.
