Clinton Cash: An update

The New York Post celebrates Madam Hillary’s rollout rerun with an update from Peter Schweizer on Clinton Cash:

Bloomberg and the Washington Post…drilled down and discovered an additional 1,100 hidden foreign Clinton Foundation donations. Since the revelation, the Foundation has only released 24 of the secret foreign donors. When will Americans see the remaining 1,076 names? Hillary hasn’t said.

And thanks to the Huffington Post, we now know that in 2014 and 2015, Hillary delivered eight speeches totaling $1.6 million in speaking fees paid for by two of the largest banks tied to the Keystone XL pipeline.
That’s in addition to the $1.8 million Bill bagged for the 10 Keystone investor-funded speeches he delivered during Hillary’s tenure as Secretary of State.

Perhaps this helps explain Hillary’s reticence over the last few years to express opposition to the pipeline, much to ­environmentalists’ chagrin.

We now know 181 Clinton Foundation donors lobbied Hillary’s State Department; that the Clintons’ family foundation received millions from Qatar, as well as donations from FIFA, the soccer organization now enmeshed in a bribery and corruption scandal of global proportions; that the Clintons have a secret “pass-through” company, WJC, LLC.; that Hillary’s State Department “approved $165 billion worth of commercial arms sales to 20 nations whose governments have given money to the Clinton Foundation,” according to the International Business Times analysis.

In case you missed it, Mr. Bill appeared on CNN to offer a defense that had the air of a rerun as well. As for the generous donors who contributed to his foundation or compensated him for his speeches, he observed: “I don’t ever know what people’s motives are.” This (pseudo) rhetorical question has a familiar quality as well: “Has anybody proved that we did anything objectionable?”

If history is any guide, knowledgeable observers know that the answer to that question “depends on” something. In this case, however, Clinton answered his own question in the negative.
