Clinton rakes in cash overseas

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by azurnoir (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: TheHill

Hillary Clinton's campaign has held more fundraisers on foreign soil than any other candidate running for president in 2016.

The Clinton campaign has held at least 13 fundraisers overseas so far, involving celebrities such as jazz singer Tony Bennett and fashion editor Anna Wintour, according to tracking of political fundraising invitations by the nonpartisan Sunlight Foundation.

Clinton’s offshore fundraisers, which tap wealthy U.S. citizens and permanent resident living abroad, have spanned from London, where the campaign has held at least eight fundraisers, to Munich, Mexico City, and Durban, South Africa.

Bill made more than that ($600k) for giving one speech to (IMHO evil) Dutch health insurer Achmea in 2013

22. Try to stay on message.

 

I know it is your raison d'etre to bring down Hillary (whatever the motivation, I know not), but the OP was about taking political donations from Americans living abroad.

Try to keep up. Or at least have the courtesy to keep your right-wingish shit on the proper thread.

He's been cited by the FEC for illegal contributions from foreign nationals. http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/988/201602110300034988/201602110300034988.pdf

http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/619/201602250300038619/201602250300038619.pdf

Clinton is raising money from Americans living abroad. Those citizens don't forsake their right to vote or contribute to campaigns because they live overseas.

23. Not much of a news flash, is it? Americans living abroad have the same right to donate as the rest

of us. Plus I imagine that the people in the countries where they live are frightened by Trump and mystified by his apparent popularity so these Americans will probably donate to anyone who is not a republican.

6. I saw articles on this here about 6 months ago.

 

Two people specifically were mentioned. A Saudi Prince who gave millions and Ukrainian oligarch Viktor Pinchuk who gave $10 million before the coup went down. Considering the wars going on in both countries I would say it is worth a much deeper look.

Here's some links: http://www.wsj.com/articles/clinton-charity-tapped-foreign-friends-1426818602

These are just a few of her foreign donors. She has many more. Many with very shady dealings.

27. How many half million dollar speeches did Bernie make for Lockheed Martin?

 

The difference is that Bernie was trying to get people jobs that would have gone elsewhere--the project wouldn't have been killed by anything he could do. He had railed for years against the waste and fraud of such military boondoggles.

In contrast, Hillary's actions always seem to fatten the Clintons' personal pork barrel.
