"The fundamental thing is you cannot be Secretary of State of the United States of America and use that position to extort or seek contributions to your private foundation. That is a fundamental violation of law and that does appear to have happened." - Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL)
Hillary Clinton has forgotten what it means to be a public servant, if she ever understood public service at all.
While serving as Secretary of State, Clinton’s Foundation accepted large payments from major corporations and wealthy individuals -- foreign and domestic.
One pattern remains clear: Donors to the Clinton Foundation with significant business before the State Department received favorable treatment from Crooked Hillary in her role as Secretary of State.
Donald Trump has called for an independent Special Prosecutor to investigate this corruption because, as it turns out, the Department of Justice has also acted unethically.
In particular, Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s private lengthy meeting with Bill Clinton just prior to the DOJ’s decision not to prosecute Hillary Clinton for her crimes – a courtesy that never would have been extended to your average citizen.
Donald Trump’s statement on specific ethics violations by Hillary Clinton, calling for a Special Prosecutor:
Her actions corrupted and disgraced one of the most important Departments of government, indeed one of only four established by the United States Constitution itself.
The Clintons' made the State Department into the same kind of Pay-to-Play operations as the Arkansas Government was: pay the Clinton Foundation huge sums of money and throw in some big speaking fees for Bill Clinton and you got to play with the State Department.
The amounts involved, the favors done and the significant numbers of times it was done require an expedited investigation by a Special Prosecutor. After the FBI and Department of Justice whitewash of the Clinton email crimes, they certainly cannot be trusted to quickly or impartially investigate Hillary Clinton’s crimes.
Some former prosecutors have even suggested that the coordination between the pay-for-play State Department and the corrupt Clinton Foundation constitute a clear example of a RICO (Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organization) enterprise.
The Justice Department is required to appoint an independent Special Prosecutor because it has proven itself to be a political arm of the White House.
Here is one example of Clinton Corruption.
As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton signed off on a deal allowing Russians to take an increased stake in a company called Uranium One, giving up control of about 20 percent of America’s uranium supply to the Russians. Clinton’s approval of the deal netted the owners of the uranium company millions of dollars. In exchange for signing off on the deal, some of the former owners of Uranium One gave the Clinton Foundation millions of dollars in donations. In addition, Bill Clinton received $500,000 for a speech to a Kremlin-backed investment firm that was a beneficiary of the deal.
Here is another example of pay-for-play.
In 2009, Ericsson telecommunications came under U.S. pressure for selling telecom equipment to several oppressive governments – including Sudan, Syria, and Iran. Some these regimes used those technologies to monitor and control their own people.
In June 2011, Hillary Clinton’s State Department began adding goods and services to a list that might be covered under expanded sanctions on Iran and other state sponsors of terrorism.
During that time, Ericsson sponsored a speech by Bill Clinton, paying him $750,000 – his highest paying speech.
In April 2012, the Obama Administration issued an executive order imposing sanctions on telecom sales to Iran and Syria –but those sanctions did not cover Ericsson’s work in Iran.
A Trump Administration will end the government corruption.
No one will be above the law.
We will have one set of rules for everyone. In Hillary Clinton’s world, we have one set of rules for her – and another set of rules for everyone else.
