9780062369284: Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich

READ THE BOOK DONALD TRUMP REFERENCED AND READ IN HIS MAJOR ANTI-HILLARY CLINTON SPEECH.

In 2000, Bill and Hillary Clinton owed millions of dollars in legal debt. Since then, they’ve earned over $230 million. Where did the money come from? Most people assume that the Clintons amassed their wealth through lucrative book deals and high-six figure fees for speaking gigs. Now, Peter Schweizer shows who is really behind those enormous payments.

In the New York Times bestseller Clinton Cash, he 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. Now, with Hillary on the verge of winning the presidential nomination, the questions it raises are more important than ever.

Schweizer reveals the Clintons’ 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.

A new documentary to be released will continue to push the revelations in Clinton Cash.

From the Back Cover:

Most people assume that the Clintons amassed their considerable wealth through lucrative book deals and speaking gigs that sometimes paid as much as $500,000–$750,000. But who paid these fees, and why? Often foreign businessmen and governments made the enormous payments, believing the Clintons would help advance their interests.

As Peter Schweizer reveals, the Clintons typically blur the lines between politics, philanthropy, and business. Consider the following: Bill flies into a third world country, where he spends time in the company of a businessman described as a "close personal friend." Introductions are made. A deal is struck—usually to exploit natural resources, such as uranium, oil, or timber, on a large and highly profitable scale. Soon after that, enormous contributions are made to the Clinton Foundation from those who benefited from the deal, while Bill is commissioned to deliver a series of highly paid speeches. Moreover, some of these deals require approval or review by the US government and fall within the purview of a powerful senator and secretary of state.

This scenario plays out again and again—in Kazakhstan, Colombia, and other places at the "Wild West" fringe of the global economy. Often the people involved are characters of a kind that an American ex-president (not to mention the spouse of a sitting senator, secretary of state, or presidential candidate) should have nothing to do with.

In this blockbuster exposé, Schweizer reveals

  • the mysterious multimillion-dollar Foundation gift from an obscure Indian politician that coincided with Senator Clinton's reversal on the nuclear non-proliferation treaty;
  • how Secretary of State Clinton was involved in allowing the transfer of nearly 50 percent of US domestic uranium output to the Russian government, benefiting large donors to the Clinton Foundation;
  • how multimillion-dollar contracts for Haiti disaster relief were awarded to donors and friends of Hillary and Bill;
  • how Bill received large payments for speeches from foreign businesses and governments with matters pending before the State Department;
  • how the Clintons' joint visit to Colombia was followed by the grant of lucrative logging rights to a Canadian billionaire, a top Clinton Foundation donor;
  • how Bill received $2 million for speeches from the largest shareholder in the Keystone Pipeline project, even as Hillary played a role in approving it.

Meticulously researched and scrupulously sourced, Clinton Cash raises serious and alarming questions of judgment, of possible indebtedness to an array of foreign interests, and, ultimately, of fitness for high public office.
