Bill Clinton was caught being paid an incredible amount by the Russia-based banking company Renaissance Capital for his June 29, 2010, speech in Moscow.
To top it off, during his speech Hillary was speaking out in opposition to proposed sanctions on Russia for human rights abuses.
From Fox News:
“former Secretary of State Clinton’s initial opposition [to the sanctions] coincided with a $500,000 speech her husband gave in Moscow – a link her 2016 campaign fought to downplay in the press, according to WikiLeaks-released documents.
Trump White House officials now are trying to draw attention to that speech and the Clintons’ ties to Russia in a bid to counter criticism over Trump Jr.’s now-infamous meeting.
“If you want to talk about having relationships with Russia, I’d look no further than the Clintons,” Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said at a briefing last week. “Bill Clinton was paid half a million dollars to give a speech to a Russian bank, personally thanked by President Putin.”
Are we really surprised Hillary would change her mind about Russia after the country stopped paying her family?
If you think she is corrupt now, just wait. It gets better.
The law Clinton was speaking out against was one that would have stopped alleged Russian “human rights abusers” from entering America. Human rights abusers like the board members of Renaissance Capital – the same financial firm paying half a million dollars for Bill Clinton to speak at their event.
Continuing from Fox News:
“Shortly before Bill Clinton’s speech in 2010, when members of Congress pushing the [Russian] sanctions bill had asked Hillary Clinton to refuse visas to Russian officials implicated under the policy, the State Department denied the request. The Obama administration initially was opposed to the [sanctions] because then-President Barack Obama was seeking a “reset” with Russia and did not want to deepen the divide between the two countries.
Former President Bill Clinton’s speech to Renaissance just weeks later was all the more curious, considering Renaissance’s Russian investment bank executives would have been banned from the U.S. under the law.”
If this wasn’t damning enough, Hillary tried to suppress this story in 2015.
Thanks to Wikileaks we now know that one of her staffers sent an email stating:
“- With the help of the research team, we killed a Bloomberg story trying to link HRC’s opposition to the Magnitsky bill to a $500,000 speech that WJC gave in Moscow.”
Don’t let her suppress this information again.
