Political pundit, investigative journalist, and reporter Peter Schweizer, the author of the book Clinton Cash, who discusses how Hillary and Bill Clinton acquired their wealth by receiving money from foreign governments and businesses.
Moreover, he talks about the scandal where the Department of States had approved for the Clinton Foundation to receive$145 million from Russian shareholders of the Uranium One company.
The Clinton family cashed in on the Russian and somehow Trump is the lightning rod for them now for his cabinet members’ alleged irrelevant meetings with Russian officials.
On Fox Business’ “Lou Dobbs Tonight” on Tuesday, Schweizer said that the Hillary-run State Department’s approval for the money the Clinton Foundation received from Russian shareholders ($145 million) should be the subject of a federal investigation.
Schweizer recently discussed Hillary’s speech on foreign donations entering the U.S. saying, “It was a bizarre speech that she gave. It’s as if she was Rip Van Winkle has been asleep since the Clinton Foundation, Clinton Global Initiative had been functioning. If we are concerned about foreign government money in our politics as Hillary Clinton says she is let’s begin with the Clinton Foundation and begin with a very basic simple premise that is the Clinton Foundation agreed, signed an agreement with Barack Obama that they would disclose all of their donors on an annual basis. Under oath, Hillary Clinton told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee the same thing and we know they haven’t done it, that there are at least 1,100 foreign donations that they have any been disclosed to the American public. I was just shaking my head throughout that speech. It was. remarkable for her to say that.”
Said the author when discussing Clinton’s deal to receive $145 million from Uranium One, “Look there are a couple of things that are extremely troubling about the deal we touched on. number one is the amount of money $145 million. We are not talking about a super PAC giving a million dollars to support a candidate. We are not talking about campaign donations. We are talking about $145 million which by the way is 75 percent or more of the annual budget of the Clinton Foundation itself so it’s a huge sum of money.
Second of all, we are talking about a fundamental issue of national security which is uranium — it’s not like oil and gas that you can find all sorts of places. They are precious few places you can mine for uranium, in the United States is one of those areas. And number three we are talking about the Russian government.
A lot of people don’t realize it now, in parts of the Midwest American soil is owned by Vladimir Putin’s government because this deal went through. And in addition to the $145 million Bill Clinton got half a billion dollars, $500,000 for a 20-minute speech from a Russian investment bank tied to the Kremlin, two months before the State Department signed off on this deal. It just stinks to high heaven and I think it requires a major investigation by the federal government.”
He further said, “Everyone knows the reason that money flows to politicians is people want something in return. And particularly when you are talking about overseas in places like Nigeria or Russia or the United Arab Emirates. Those political cultures are rife with payoff and corruption.
“And to think that you have got a Nigerian businessmen pledging $1 billion with a B to the Clinton Global Initiative that he wants nothing from the Clinton in return is just laughable. I think the American people recognize that there is a pay to play system in Washington and that’s why you are seeing this rebellion against money in politics,” he added.
