Back in 2009, the Crown Prince of Bahrain, Sheikh Salman bin Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa, wanted to meet with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. When he approached her through official channels she declined because she might be feeling sick those days or have to wash her hair or something really important:
He [the Crown Prince] asked to see hrc thurs and fri thru normal channels. I asked and she said she doesn’t want to commit to anything for thurs or fri until she knows how she will feel. Also she says that she may want to go to ny and doesn’t want to be committed to stuff in ny…
Besides, Bahrain was probably hot and insignificant and filled with surly, barely civilized foreigners who’d want her to wear a burqa instead of a baggy pantsuit. Who needs them anyway?
As it turned out, the Crown Prince’s father and the Bahrain state-owned oil company were also a significant donors to the Clinton Foundation. So he approached Doug Band, a board member of the Clinton Global Initiative. Band isn’t just anyone. He’s been Bill Clinton’s personal counselor for years. Band sent an email to Huma Abedin asking her to set up a meeting:
As it turned out, money talks and bullsh** and national diplomacy walks. While Clinton couldn’t be available through official channels, she found time to meet with the Crown Prince after Band had reminded her that he was a “good friend of ours.”
In a document dump released today by Judicial Watch, the pay-to-play way in which the US State Department was managed by Hillary Clinton becomes very apparent. Over and over, big donors to the Clinton family approached Doug Band for favors they could not get through normal channels. Band relayed instructions to Huma Abedin. Huma made it happen.
In 2011, when Doug Band was a principal in founding Teneo, a multi-national consulting firm, one of his first acts was hiring Huma Abedin. Unbelievably, Hillary Clinton approved Huma Abedin remaining on the State Department payroll at the same time she was collecting a check from a company with business before State.
Back in Bill Clinton’s second term, when he wasn’t fighting off impeachment charges and throwing the wood to the help, he was embroiled in a fundraising scandal that included taking money from the Communist Chinese. One of the bagmen was a guy named Johnny Chung (another of them is now the governor of Virginia). Chung had this insight on how the Clinton White House operated:
In addition, Chung is expected to be questioned about his claims that campaign cash bought him access to the inner sanctums of the Clinton administration. Chung said in a July 1997 interview with the Los Angeles Times, “I see the White House is like a subway: You have to put in coins to open gates.”
That is what you’re getting with a Hillary Clinton White House. A rapacious, vicious, cash-vacuuming harridan acting as the capo di tutti capi of what is essentially an ongoing criminal conspiracy.
…My gosh, we can’t even say “Vote for the crook, it’s important” anymore because that could be either of the two major candidates.
