Another Gold Mine! HILLARY CLINTON INTERVENED FOR A ST. PETERSBURG FIRM AFTER REQUEST TO SON-IN-LAW

HILLARY CLINTON INTERVENED FOR A ST. PETERSBURG FIRM AFTER REQUEST TO SON-IN-LAW
• By Stephen Braun, Associated Press

Wednesday, December 9, 2015 9:33am

Investors in Neptune Mining had asked Mezvinsky for help setting up a meeting with Clinton or other State Department officials, AP reports.

WASHINGTON — As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton intervened in a request forwarded by her son-in-law on behalf of a deep-sea mining firm to meet with her or other State Department officials, according to the recently released Clinton emails.

One of the firm's investors had asked Clinton's son-in-law, Marc Mezvinsky, who is married to Chelsea Clinton, for help setting up such contacts, the emails show.

The lobbying effort on behalf of Neptune Minerals Inc. came while Hillary Clinton — now the leading Democratic presidential candidate — was advocating for an Obama administration push for Senate approval of a sweeping Law of the Sea Treaty. The pact would have aided U.S. mining companies scouring for minerals in international waters, but the Republican-dominated Senate blocked it.

Clinton ordered a senior State Department official in August 2012 to look into the request. Her action came three months after an investor in the mining firm emailed Mezvinsky, a partner in Eaglevale Partners LP, a New York hedge fund, asking for his help in setting up State Department contacts.

Clinton relayed a copy of the investor's email to Thomas Nides, then a deputy secretary of state and now vice chairman at Morgan Stanley, a major New York financial services firm. "Could you have someone follow up on this request, which was forwarded to me?" Clinton asked Nides. He replied: "I'll get on it."

1. This response to the Gold Mine thread here warrants it's own OP, once again.

 

This was posted here on DU earlier. This shows the same type of family favors, in the millions for them, while giving BILLIONS of OUR money, to get it. This is beyond corrupt!

4. Why hasn't Clinton responded to AP questions on this in 5 months?

AP has been asking Clinton campaign for information about this since NOVEMBER 30, and have been getting the cold shoulder.

This is yet another example of how un-transparent Hillary is.
Or should that be anti-transparent?

6. Honest stupid question: Is this illegal?

I mean I know it should be illegal but I assume it's legal? That is unless there was money funneled to make it happen?

8. It's not legal, and many were surprised. It's corruption, out of the sunshine.

 

The fact it was found, and she has yet to answer, shows just how arrogant she is, and above any questioning at all.

This is why, she'll never ever get my vote!

12. Exactly, and now there is a new story, same features.

Gold Mine: Hillary Clinton’s Brother Granted Super-Rare Mining Permit from Haiti After State Dept. S [View all]
Sent Country Billions

Hillary Rodham Clinton’s brother, Tony Rodham, sat on the board of a self-described mining company that in 2012 received one of only two “gold exploitation permits” from the Haitian government—the first issued in over 50 years.

The tiny North Carolina company, VCS Mining, also included on its board Bill Clinton’s co-chair of the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission (IHRC), former Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive.

The Rodham gold mine revelation is just one of dozens featured in a forthcoming bombshell investigative book by three-time New York Times bestselling author Peter Schweizer, according to a Thursday statement from publishing giant HarperCollins. The publisher says the book, Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich, is the culmination of an exhaustive one-year deep dive investigation into the nexus between the Clintons’ $100+ million personal wealth, the Clinton Foundation, and the decisions Hillary made as Secretary of State that benefited foreign donors, governments, and companies.

That is why I reposted the similar corrupt story, as it mirrors this behavior right here......She cannot be the president. She has 'enriched' herself and her family, enough.

14. Gee. Mineral extraction is a family enterprise.



I was curious: What does one do with a used president? Barrick vehemently denies that it appointed Bush "in order to procure him to make contact with other world leaders whom he knows, or who could be of considerable assistance" to the company. Yet, in September 1996, Bush wrote a letter to help convince Indonesian dictator Suharto to give Barrick a new, hot gold-mining concession.

Bush's letter seemed to do the trick. Suharto took away 68 percent of the world's largest goldfield from the finder of the ore and handed it to Barrick. However, Bush's lobbying magic isn't invincible. Jim Bob Moffett, a tough old Louisiana swamp dog who heads Freeport-McMoRan, Barrick's American rival, met privately with Suharto. When Suharto emerged from their meeting, the kleptocrat announced that Freeport would replace Bush's Canadians. (Barrick lucked out: The huge ore deposit turned out to be a hoax. When the con was uncovered, Jim Bob's associates invited geologist Mike de Guzman, who "discovered" the gold, to talk about the error of his ways. Unfortunately, on the way to the meeting, de Guzman fell out of a helicopter.)
