It should come as no surprise that the Associated Press reports that “More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money – either personally or through companies or groups – to the Clinton Foundation”:
At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs, according to a review of State Department calendars released so far to The Associated Press. Combined, the 85 donors contributed as much as $156 million. At least 40 donated more than $100,000 each, and 20 gave more than $1 million.
Scandal and the appearance impropriety constantly swarms around Hillary Clinton:
- Watergate – Hillary was fired from the staff of the House Judiciary committee investigating the Nixon Watergate scandal in 1974 by her supervisor, Democrat Jerry Zeifman, because she was a liar. Hillary “conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”
- Hillary’s ‘missing’ law firm billing records during the Watergate scandal. When the records mysteriously turned up in the White House in 1996, they showed Hillary met repeatedly with key figures in the scandal.”
- Travelgate – Hillary allegedly fired seven employees and gave the positions to her Arkansas friends in a scheme to award a White House airline contract to a Clinton friend.
- Filegate – The Clintons illegally obtained FBI files on political adversaries.
But Hillary’s selling of access reminds us of the Clintons selling access to the Lincoln Bedroom — a fundraising scandal which NBC’s Jim Miklaszewski described as the most expensive bed and breakfast in North America. Some of the 958 visitors who slept at the White House during Clinton’s first term. Steve Jobs paid $150,000; and Steven Spielberg paid $200,000.
How much would you pay to meet with or speak to the Secretary of State of the United States? On average the 85 people included in the Associated Press report, paid $1.835 million. In exchange they were allowed to see or speak with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Hillary and president Bill Clinton do not seem to have an ethical bone in their bodies and Hillary seems to be completely incapable of telling the truth. Selling access to the Secretary of State is just another despicable chapter in Hillary’s scandal-plagued career of “public service”
