Top Hillary Clinton Campaign Fundraiser Lobbies for Offshore Drilling in Israel



Jackson Dunn, a lobbyist employed by FTI Consulting subsidiary FTI Government Affairs and a top-level campaign finance bundler for Hillary Clinton's presidential run, lobbied throughout 2014 and 2015 for offshore drilling off the coast of Israel on behalf of Noble Energy.

The finding by DeSmog comes days after an irritated Clinton told an activist for Greenpeace USA, that she was “so sick of the Sanders campaign lying about me” with regards to her coziness to lobbyists and fossil fuel campaign cash.

Dunn, according to his FTI biography, formerly worked for the Bill Clinton White House as the point man for the “business community’s support of President Clinton’s economic and trade agenda.”



The lobbying disclosure forms confirm that Dunn lobbied the White House and State Department on developments in the Eastern Mediterranean, which is where Noble's top energy assets offshore in Israel sit.

Noble recently faced a major setback in Israel with the Supreme Court ruling that the contractual agreement the company landed with the Israeli government was illegal and akin to a monopoly. The court gave the company and Israel up to a year to negotiate a new deal.

Also~
Forty lobbyist bundlers raised a collective $2,075,344.60 for the Democratic candidate — nine times more than the $228,400 that eight lobbyist bundlers raised for Republican candidate Jeb Bush.

Clinton’s top bundler by far was Jackson Dunn of FTI Consulting, who raised $231,544. Dunn lobbies on behalf of Dow Chemical, MasterCard, Noble Energy and PepsiCo, according to lobbying records.

And her recent statement about China...more bs...

Teneo, which maintains offices in Dubai and Beijing, was founded in 2011 by former State Department official and Hillary 2008 fundraiser Declan Kelly, as well as former Clinton aide Douglas Band and Paul Keary, former senior managing director of FTI Consulting, a global consulting firm specializing in China.

FTI’s man in Washington, Jackson Dunn, served as an aide to both Bill and Hillary Clinton, as well as to former Sen. John Kerry, who succeeded Hillary at State. Teneo’s “intelligence CEO” is James Shinn, a former Pentagon official focused on China.

But then, Mr Dunn loves China, like his buddy Bill~

In the Clinton White House, Jackson Dunn was associate director of public liaison, coordinating the business community’s support of President Clinton’s economic and trade agenda, including the successful efforts to pass the New Markets Initiative and to secure PNTR for the People’s Republic of China.

1. It's worse than that, actually. Noble is one of the companies that

 

is involved with extraction and export of natural gas for Israel to which Palestinians have a right (off the coast of Gaza and possibly elsewhere in the occupied territories) but which are controlled by Israel. Natural gas might actually help build a viable economy in Gaza, but we can't have that.

2. They have the highest unemployment rate in the world & only enough electricity for a few hours/day,

so I can see why this would be frustrating. But if Israel didn't blockade them, their economy could flourish by more earth-friendly means. Solar panels come to mind, too. They have plenty of sun.

But not enough water. They're projected to be void of potable water in 4 years.

Israel needs to leave them alone.

campaign. Check out to whom else he donated.

4. This high-dollar mover & shaker for BigOil & China trade was also

the 2004-cycle DNC finance director.

6. FTI is also responsible for the campaign to attack environmentalists.

FTI Consulting, which has long managed the Independent Petroleum Association of America’s “Energy in Depth” public relations campaign. “Energy in Depth” employs a variety of tactics, including attacking environmental activists and distributing incorrect and misleading research to local policymakers in order to advance the petroleum industry’s agenda.
