Bill Clinton, Inc.

A very interesting document released courtesy of Wikileaks detailing how the Clinton Foundation was basically a money making scheme for the Clintons, as well as serving to establish a political power base for them:

 

 

One of Bill Clinton’s closest confidants outlined in a lengthy 2011 memo how he and another aide helped secure at least $50 million in speaking fees and other ventures for the former president – in addition to raising “the bulk” of funds for the controversial Clinton Foundation.

The 12-page memo from Doug Band, released Wednesday by WikiLeaks, was designed to highlight the crucial role he – and his global strategy company Teneo – played in procuring money for the ex-president and Clinton’s namesake foundation.

“Throughout the past almost 11 years since President Clinton left office, I have sought to leverage my activities, including my partner role at Teneo, to support and to raise funds for the Foundation,” Band wrote. “This memorandum strives to set forth how I have endeavored to support the Clinton Foundation and President Clinton personally.”

CLINTON AIDE CRITICIZED EX-PRESIDENT FOR CONFLICTS OF INTEREST

Under a section titled “For-Profit Activity of President Clinton (i.e., Bill Clinton, Inc.),” Band wrote that he and Clinton aide Justin Cooper “found, developed and brought” to Clinton all four of his advisory arrangements at the time – arrangements that “yielded more than $30 million for him personally, with $66 million to be paid out over the next nine years should he choose to continue with the current engagements.” The memo also included a footnote explaining how Clinton’s speaking agent estimated that during a 10-year period, “$20 million in speeches for the President have derived … from Justin and my efforts.”

What’s more, Band and Cooper apparently helped make Clinton wealthy – and “solicited and obtained … in-kind services … for personal travel, hospitality, vacation and the like” – at no extra charge.

“Neither Justin nor I are separately compensated for these activities,” Band wrote, noting the pair didn’t take a “fee” or “percentage” of Clinton’s income, only collecting their standard Foundation salaries. 

 

Go here to read the rest.  All of this money was raised by selling influence and access.  While Bill Clinton was retired from politics, Hillary Clinton was not.  Those seeking in effect to bribe Hillary Clinton could do so by using Bill Clinton as a conduit for the bribe.  One has to hand it to these transparent crooks, a true money making machine.  The memo by Doug Band makes for interesting reading.  Go here to read it.

  1. Isn’t America great! Where a poor boy from Arkansas can grow up to become President, engage in continuous adultery, provide the path for his wife to gain political power, and, after leaving office, set up a foundation that makes himself rich by selling his wife’s favors as Secretary of State to corrupt foreign regimes. And it gets even better when the wife becomes our next President. And the best part is that it appears that he and his wife are getting away with it especially with the help of the Catholic Church who have bribed into silence. It just doesn’t get any better than this—or worse. Lesson learned: you can fool most of the people most of the time to get away with just about anything.

  2. They didn’t create any product, or invent a widget. They sold influence and then delivered on their end of the bargain. Standard bribe. Now, will there ever be a consequence for these crooks? I’m not holding my breath. The institutions that should be a counterbalance to the Clinton Crime syndicate simply aren’t. They are ineffectual at best and complicit at worst. I include our beloved Church here. It is a bought and paid for subsidiary of the Democratic party.

  3. FBI has reopened Hillary’s private email case, not based on Wikileaks or Clinton Foundation. Based on info from another undisclosed case. Her plane has landed in Iowa. Her dr. must be filling her full of anti seizure meds! Bill and Hill in matching orange jumpsuits.
    Ryan calling for no further briefings from Nat Dir of Intell.
    If this is as big as it sounds, I predict that aides will jump ship and ask for immunity to protect themselves.
