Hillary Clinton’s long march to the U.S. presidency continues unabated, and many voters are so scared of the idea of President Donald Trump, they’d vote for Clinton even if she sprouted fangs and hissed like a cobra. But anyone who’s all comfy with the idea that voting for Clinton as the “lesser of two evils” really needs to watch “Clinton Cash” first.
This is a straight-to-YouTube doc, and its quick-and-rough assemblage may make some suspect GOP dirty tricks. But, though author Peter Schweizer, who appears extensively in the film, is a conservative author, he released his well-sourced book “Clinton Cash” in 2015 and the charges he made have largely survived media scrutiny.
“Clinton Cash” takes a simple approach: follow the money. The film investigates the vast flow of cash to the Clinton Foundation, and how that could be diverted to for-profit companies who — surprise! — often rewarded the Clintons personally with six-figure speaking fees.
The picture it paints is not pretty, one where self-enrichment trumps political principle every time. Human rights violators, rainforest clear-cutting contractors, sweatshop owners, Keystone XL pipeline supporters, even Russian uranium mining interests connected to Vladimir Putin — their money is all good with the Clintons, and mysteriously, the donors always seem to get satisfactory resolution of some issue or contract they had pending with the U.S. government. Coincidence? Not when you start connecting the dots.
In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
