Hillary Clinton Bribed $2.9 Million For Twelve Wall St. Speeches

4 April 2016

Hillary Clinton has received a significant amount of criticism for not releasing the transcripts of her Goldman Sachs speeches. They’re not the only financial institution she’s given speeches to. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders this week assailed rival Hillary Clinton for taking large speaking fees from the financial industry since leaving the State Department.

According to public disclosures, by giving just 12 speeches to Wall Street banks, private equity firms, and other financial corporations, Clinton made $2,935,000 from 2013 to 2015…

Clinton’s most lucrative year was 2013, right after stepping down as secretary of state. That year, she made $2.3 million for three speeches to Goldman Sachs and individual speeches to Deutsche Bank, Morgan Stanley, Fidelity Investments, Apollo Management Holdings, UBS, Bank of America, and Golden Tree Asset Managers.

The following year, she picked up $485,000 for a speech to Deutsche Bank and an address to Ameriprise. Last year, she made $150,000 from a lecture before the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce.”

Hillary Donors Use State Loopholes To Launder Millions

4 April 2016

To give you a sense of how much the Democratic Party/DNC establishment is on Hillary Clinton’s side, we have an amazing story from Counterpunch about how they funneled millions into her campaign. Somehow this is apparently legal, but it seems a lot like money laundering. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“In August 2015, at the Democratic Party convention in Minneapolis, 33 democratic state parties made deals with the Hillary Clinton campaign and a joint fundraising entity called The Hillary Victory Fund. The deal allowed many of her core billionaire and inner circle individual donors to run the maximum amounts of money allowed through those state parties to the Hillary Victory Fund in New York and the DNC in Washington.

The idea was to increase how much one could personally donate to Hillary by taking advantage of the Supreme Court ruling 2014, McCutcheon v FEC, that knocked down a cap on aggregate limits as to how much a donor could give to a federal campaign in a year. It thus eliminated the ceiling on amounts spent by a single donor to a presidential candidate.”

  1. Hillary Clinton “made $2.3 million for three speeches to Goldman Sachs and individual speeches to Deutsche Bank, Morgan Stanley, Fidelity Investments, Apollo Management Holdings, UBS, Bank of America, and Golden Tree Asset Managers.

    The following year, she picked up $485,000 for a speech to Deutsche Bank and an address to Ameriprise. Last year, she made $150,000 from a lecture before the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce.”

    What, I wonder, is incorrect in these points? Did Ms Clinton, in fact, not do any speeches? Or did she indeed do speeches, but not for these big banks, but instead for Greenpeace, or a trade union local branch or a charity for poor children, while not getting any money for these speeches, maybe just travel expenses back?

    If those speeches indeed bring in so much money, then people correctly ask that someone who runs for the Presidency of the USA should make their contents public.
