Who Else Besides Carlos Slim Are Clinton Foundation Big Donors?
- The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia gave between $10 million and $25 million to The Clinton Foundation.
- Sheikh Mohammed H. Al-Amoudi gave between $5 million and $10 million.
- Nasser Al-Rashid gave between $1 million and $5 million.
Why is any of that so bad?(1) Saudi Arabia: How they treat gays. How they treat women caught having sex outside of marriage, and in other areas of life.
(2) "Depending on disparate ethnic categorizations, and Al Amoudi's mixed Ethiopian and Yemeni parentage, he is considered to be the richest black person in the world and/or one of the richest Arab."

WASHINGTON -- A numbered Swiss bank account under scrutiny by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department in a terrorism case is controlled by a Saudi tycoon.
Since last year, U.S. officials have been seeking to learn who holds an account at ABN Amro Bank in Geneva that was used to make an anonymous $300,000 donation to a group called the Islamic Assembly of North America, which federal prosecutors accuse of endorsing acts of terrorism. The group denies the accusations, and a Saudi employee of the group charged with financing terrorism was acquitted earlier this year in Idaho.
Lawyers for Mohammed Hussein Al Amoudi, one of the world's richest men, now say that he controls the Geneva account.
The disclosure casts new light on the financing of fundamentalist Islamic groups -- a key issue for several continuing U.S. investigations. The federal 9/11 Commission concluded that wealthy Saudis financed a world-wide network of jihadist charities, but didn't name any names. Now, investigators are increasingly focused on a small group of extremely wealthy merchants in the Saudi business capital of Jedda, where Mr. Al Amoudi is based. This turn in the money trail also puts the U.S. and the Saudis in an acute bind: Because of the clout the businessmen enjoy, current and former U.S. officials say, the Saudi government finds it difficult to reproach them for how they spend their money.
At conferences and on Web sites, the Islamic Assembly of North America, of Ann Arbor, Mich., has advocated the jihadist ideology of radical Saudi clerics, according to court statements by prosecutors and FBI agents, and some of its founders have ties to alleged terrorists.
Mr. Al Amoudi's lawyers say he is also tangentially connected to a separate federal terrorism inquiry in Herndon, Virginia. In 2000, Mr. Al Amoudi paid more than $50,000 in consulting fees to Sterling Management Group, one of more than 100 entities controlled by a group of Islamic activists suspected by the Justice Department of financing terrorism. - Copyright ©2016 Dow Jones & Company, Inc.

From the Miami Herald:
“WASHINGTON: More than 40 percent of the top donors to the Clinton family foundation are based in foreign countries, which could lead to conflict-of-interest questions for Hillary Clinton as she prepares to launch her campaign for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.And speaking of tax returns, Hillary: "The Clinton Foundation announced last week [in April 2015] that it would be refiling its tax returns for the last five years because it had improperly failed to disclose millions of dollars in donations from foreign sources while Hillary Clinton was serving as Secretary of State."
The charity that now bears Hillary Clinton’s name along with her husband and daughter has received millions of dollars in donations from foreign governments, businesses, individuals and nongovernment organizations around the globe, according to an analysis of 10 years of contributions by McClatchy. Many of them gave as recently as 2014.
Just another example of Hillary scolding her "enemies" to "Do as I say, not as I do."
Well, The Clinton Foundation does so much good, right?
Partly a philanthropy (the Clinton Foundation), partly a platform for post-presidential private enterprise (Bill’s speeches and consulting), at one time a presidential campaign-in-waiting (Hillary at the State Department and after), Clinton Inc. is everywhere and nowhere. It zooms across borders—Bill is in Africa! Hillary is teleconferencing in New York! Chelsea is speaking at the Council on Foreign Relations!—a creature of the digital age and global ambition, powered by celebrity, image and spin, relentlessly raking in money. It includes the Clinton Global Initiative, a glitzy stage for big money pledges to various Clinton endeavors presided over by the Big Dog himself, the Clinton Global Initiative University ["similar to Trump University...in that it never received permission to call itself a university"] and the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock. Under the auspices of the foundation, there is the Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative, the Clinton Climate Initiative, the Clinton Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative, the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership, the Clinton Development Initiative, the Clinton Economic Opportunity Initiative, and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. Just last week, Chelsea emailed me an update on the foundation’s “No Ceilings” initiative. Chelsea urged me to “donate before midnight to help my family’s foundation change lives.”More on that in a later post (or just read that report yourselves now), but for now, Sean Davis of The Federalist gets the last word today, in a 19-month-old article (do check out their many referenced links):
Then there is Teneo Holdings, a global consulting firm with deep Clinton connections..." ~ excerpted from The Judicial Watch
“'I did not have fiscal relations with that government' isn’t going to fly this time. There is most definitely a controlling legal authority here, and it’s the U.S. Constitution.
"The latest foreign payola scandal is just the latest chapter in the Clinton corruption novel. They played games with dirty cash in Arkansas. They played games with dirty cash literally in the White House. And now we know they were playing games with foreign cash while Hillary Clinton was serving as Secretary of State. The Founding Fathers who wrote the Constitution knew what could happen if U.S. officials put cash before their own country, so they banned the practice.
"In other words, the Founders were Ready for Hillary."
