Editorial Reviews Review “Fascinating.” (The Wall Street Journal) “Schweizer lays out compelling patterns in which the timing of policydecisions or international deals relative to donations, transcends coincidence- or at least, merits closer inspection. He narrates with crisp prose andilluminating detail.” (Forbes) “Thank goodness, then, for Peter Schweizer and his blockbuster expose “ClintonCash” (The New York Post) “a highly effective takedown.” (Peggy Noonan) “On any fair reading, the pattern of behavior that Schweizer has charged iscorruption.” (Lawrence Lessig, Harvard Law School Professor) “The new book Clinton Cash: is compelling reading on how Bill and Hillary havemixed personal wealth, power, and influence peddling.” (Jeffrey D. Sachs,Columbia University Earth Institute Director) “[Schweizer] is an equal-opportunity investigator, snaring Republicans as wellas Democrats.” (Eleanor Clift, Progressive columnist) “[Clinton Cash] provides a damning portrait of elite and circumspect power andinfluence.” (Nomi Prins, Demos Senior Fellow) “Schweizer reports on the Clintons’ enormous graft and corruptionThere neverhas been a family like this in American history, not the Longs of Louisiana,not the scamps at Tammany Hall. The Clintons are a first, and with the help ofjournalists and then investigators they could be the last.” (AmericanSpectator) “The most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle” (The New YorkTimes) From the Back Cover Most people assume that the Clintons amassed their considerable wealth throughlucrative book deals and speaking gigs that sometimes paid as much as$500,000-$750,000. But who paid these fees, and why? Often foreign businessmenand governments made the enormous payments, believing the Clintons would helpadvance their interests. As Peter Schweizer reveals, the Clintons typically blur the lines betweenpolitics, philanthropy, and business. Consider the following: Bill flies intoa third world country, where he spends time in the company of a businessmandescribed as a “close personal friend.” Introductions are made. A deal isstruck–usually to exploit natural resources, such as uranium, oil, or timber,on a large and highly profitable scale. Soon after that, enormouscontributions are made to the Clinton Foundation from those who benefited fromthe deal, while Bill is commissioned to deliver a series of highly paidspeeches. Moreover, some of these deals require approval or review by the USgovernment and fall within the purview of a powerful senator and secretary ofstate. This scenario plays out again and again–in Kazakhstan, Colombia, and otherplaces at the “Wild West” fringe of the global economy. Often the peopleinvolved are characters of a kind that an American ex-president (not tomention the spouse of a sitting senator, secretary of state, or presidentialcandidate) should have nothing to do with. In this blockbuster expose, Schweizer reveals the mysterious multimillion-dollar Foundation gift from an obscure Indian politician that coincided with Senator Clinton’s reversal on the nuclear non-proliferation treaty; how Secretary of State Clinton was involved in allowing the transfer of nearly 50 percent of US domestic uranium output to the Russian government, benefiting large donors to the Clinton Foundation; how multimillion-dollar contracts for Haiti disaster relief were awarded to donors and friends of Hillary and Bill; how Bill received large payments for speeches from foreign businesses and governments with matters pending before the State Department; how the Clintons’ joint visit to Colombia was followed by the grant of lucrative logging rights to a Canadian billionaire, a top Clinton Foundation donor; how Bill received $2 million for speeches from the largest shareholder in the Keystone Pipeline project, even as Hillary played a role in approving it. Meticulously researched and scrupulously sourced, _Clinton Cash_ raisesserious and alarming questions of judgment, of possible indebtedness to anarray of foreign interests, and, ultimately, of fitness for high publicoffice.
