It's good to be a Clinton. Things just fall into your lap. Like mansions, six figure speaking fees and million dollar checks from enemies of this country.
New emails released by WikiLeaks in connection with its dump of John Podesta’s email server indicate that Qatar, an Islamist state in the Persian gulf, gave former President Bill Clinton a check for $1 million for his birthday.
“[Qatar] Would like to see WJC ‘for five minutes’ in NYC, to present $1 million check that Qatar promised for WJC’s birthday in 2011,” Ami Desai, director of foreign policy for the Clinton Foundation, wrote in 2012.
Now this is supposed to be "charity", except that the Clinton Foundation didn't specialize in charity. And Qatar demanding a meeting and then presenting a check for Bill's birthday looks nothing like charity. It's pretty blatantly personal and about an enemy state buying influence with the husband of the woman they expected to be president.
Now, what makes this even worse, is that Hillary Clinton knew that Qatar stood behind ISIS.
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton sent an email to her campaign chairman John Podesta in 2014, who was then-counselor to President Barack Obama, that said Saudi Arabia and Qatar are both giving financial and logistical support to the Islamic State and other extremist Sunni groups, according to a recent Wikileaks release.
“While this military/para-military operation is moving forward, we need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region,” Clinton wrote.
So what does that make the Clintons exactly?
