Washington Post: Inside the Clinton Donor Network

OK future Washington hacks – Dem, GOP and otherwise, this is how you do it. Actually, it’s probably best that you skip this article now that I think about it.

The rest of our readers however, the ones who are actually sane, who would never willingly spend their lives in a blind quest for power, should read this article. Bill and Hillary have raised $3 billion in their careers. That’s a hell of a lot of money and it all came from people who wanted something.

Bill Clinton tried to line up a speech for big money in NORTH KOREA while Hillary was Secretary of State?

It didn’t happen. Looks like someone figured out it might not look so good.

Perhaps Bill was getting the lay of the land for Dennis Rodman’s later trip to the hermit people’s republic.

In fairness Pyongyang in the spring is lovely we hear.*

Daily Mail: Clintons’ charities got £50million of British aid cash: UK government accused of trying to buy influence with US power family

Tens of millions of pounds of UK aid money has been siphoned through charities linked to Hillary Clinton, it emerged last night.

British politicians – including Gordon Brown – stand accused of diverting huge amounts of cash through the organisations after falling under the spell of the US presidential candidate and her husband Bill.

At least £50 million of taxpayer-funded foreign aid money has gone to Clinton charities, which are at the centre of allegations in the US that foreign governments used donations to buy influence.

Bill Clinton on donor flap: ‘No one has ever asked me for anything’

“See it’s cool. Nobody said, so hey Bill if I give your foundation $25 million will you help me out? No one explicitly ever said those exact words to me. I promise. You can trust me. Have I ever lied to the American public? I mean, we were DEAD BROKE coming out of the White House and we needed to raise some scratch somehow.

“Plus, private jets are really expensive.”

National Review Reports: Hillary’s brother and the family business

From the moment the Clintons walked through the White House doors in January of 1993, Rodham has proven remarkably adept at harnessing their political horsepower for his personal gain. His schemes don’t always pan out, and they have caused numerous headaches for Hillary and Bill. But Rodham’s fortunes have always been tied to theirs, his bank account waxing and waning in time with the Clintons’ political prospects. He may lack their sophistication, but to many observers, Tony is the unvarnished embodiment of the Clintons’ decades-long dance with crony capitalism.

Allegations of pay (The Clinton Foundation) to play from former Clinton advisor

Dick Morris says that the United Arab Emirates has poured millions into the Clinton political machine. He says the gravy train started in 2002. Back when the Clintons were dead broke according to Ms. Clinton. (Sorry but I’m not going to forget that line from her.) A few million dollars from the Persian Gulf state I’m sure helped the destitute couple from Arkansas pay a few outstanding bills.

We asked Clinton donors why they gave. Here’s what they said

Why oh why would all these foreign companies and political muckety mucks want to give hundreds of thousands (in some cases millions) to a foundation controlled by a former Secretary of State who might be the next president of the United States? Do they really believe in the Clinton Foundation mission?

It appears that they do.

An Inside Job? : Bill Clinton reportedly thinks the Obama White House leaked the Hillary email story

When the Clinton email story broke I have to admit that this was one of the first things I thought.

It is widely believed that the Clintons and the Obamas do not like each other. Additionally the Obama political people think Hillary Clinton isn’t liberal enough. (Think about that folks.) And there is plenty of bad blood from 2008.

It’s the same old Obama chip on the shoulder thing, only this time his ire (reportedly) is directed at the likely Democratic nominee for president.

More crony media: NBC will soon air a miniseries about Hillary Clinton

We give the Dems a hard time here, and we give the GOP a hard time too.  Both parties engage in crony capitalism all the time, but in slightly different ways. The #oldmedia however have been and will likely to continue to be in the bag for the Democrats. I think this is a fair thing to say.
