BREITBART — Clinton Cash is based on the book Clinton Cash that was reviewed in this column a year ago. When seen on the big screen, Clinton Cash is even more chilling than the original book. For it deals with astounding amounts of money that were directed to the Clintons while Hillary was the Secretary of State and Bill was on the speaking circuit. Hillary and Bill have since leaving office amassed a fortune last calculated at over $135 million. The documentary was produced by the conservative, Steve Bannon of Breitbart, but he says it is aimed particularly at environmentalists, progressives, human rights groups, the kind of voters who turn out for Bernie Sanders, and even disgruntled fans of Hillary.
The documentary’s narrator and the book’s author, Peter Schweizer, says that during Hillary’s time at the State Department Bill’s speaking fees grew immensely from a mere $200,000 or so to staggering numbers: $500,000 (ten times) and $700,000 at least twice. The Foundation now is now worth an astounding $2 billion. Moreover, the Foundation’s list of donors and of those funding Bill’s speeches is a human rights who’s-who of international criminals, leaders of Kazakhstan, Nigeria, Rwanda, and Russia to name but a few. Thus the ominous rumbles in the soundtrack.
