Once again, Tom Fritton of Judicial Watch has lowered the boom on the “Dysfunctional Team Clinton.
So profound is the amount of money laundering they have joined it should not be a question of the House or Senate investigation, they should be brought down using RICO statutes.
RICO law refers to the prosecution and defense of individuals who engage in organized crime.
What was uncovered wasn’t pretty and should bring back memories of the sound of a compressed air nail gun shooting the final two hundred nails into their political coffins.
This is the story on these documents that got the ball rolling. The headline says it all: “State Department approved 215 Bill Clinton speeches, controversial consulting deal, worth $48m; Hillary Clinton’s Chief of Staff copied on all decisions.”
Out of this hard-scrabble investigating, legal work, and journalism (our Micah Morrison in partnership with The Washington Examiner) emerged the key documents that led to much more investigating by others. Notably, our friend Peter Schweitzer of the Government Accountability Institute used our documents to help with his headline-making book, “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich.” This book helped feed major media interest in the story that Judicial Watch has been highlighting since 2008.
From our November 28, 2008 Weekly Update:
I believe Obama made a deal with the devil to avoid a floor fight at the convention. It may have served him politically, but the public shouldn’t suffer the consequences.
If the Senate is serious about ethics in government, Hillary’s nomination would be rejected. In putting forward Hillary, Obama now owns the Clinton scandals. Her nomination is another weak personnel decision that will harm his presidency.
Will the Obama administration exercise due diligence and keep a watchful eye on the Clintons? My guess is that if Obama is willing to hire Hillary given her dismal record, he’ll be willing to turn a blind eye to her likely corrupt behavior at the State Department.
The vetting of Hillary seems to have been run by John Podesta (her husband’s former Chief of Staff) and Cheryl Mills (the ethically-challenged lawyer who served as Clinton White House lawyer). Surprise…… Surprise. She passed.
Will the names of those at home and abroad who gave the Clinton machine millions over the years be released?
With pals like Rezko, Wright, and Ayers, Obama doesn’t seem to care about the ethics of his cronies.
That means it’ll be up to Judicial Watch to monitor Hillary Clinton’s every move if she and Bill make it to State.
We kept our promise and filed the lawsuit that exposed the very corruption we predicted in 2008.
Again, the headlines tell you much:
- From the New York Times: Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation as Russians Pressed for Control of Uranium Company
- From Reuters: Exclusive: Clinton charities will refile tax returns, audit for other errors
- From the Washington Post, For Clintons, speech income shows how their wealth is intertwined with charity
- From ABC News: Bill Clinton Cashed In When Hillary Became Secretary of State
Now, in the midst of this cavalcade of reporting on Clinton corruption, we have disclosed yet more documents in our key Clinton accountability lawsuit.
Just yesterday, we highlighted 126 more pages of documents from the State Department related to Hillary Clinton’s conflicts of interest during her time as secretary of state. These documents were forced out of the State Department thanks to a federal court order in our Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the State Department back in May 2013.
But wait, in her defense, Hillary has always been a defender of women’s rights.
