Editorial Reviews

Review

“The most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle” (The New York Times)

“Fascinating” (The Wall Street Journal)

“Schweizer lays out compelling patterns in which the timing of policy decisions or international deals relative to donations, transcends coincidence - or at least, merits closer inspection. He narrates with crisp prose and illuminating detail.” (Forbes)

“Thank goodness, then, for Peter Schweizer and his blockbuster expose “Clinton Cash” (The New York Post)

“…a highly effective takedown.” (Peggy Noonan)

“On any fair reading, the pattern of behavior that Schweizer has charged is corruption.” (Lawrence Lessig, Harvard Law School Professor)

“The new book Clinton Cash: is compelling reading on how Bill and Hillary have mixed personal wealth, power, and influence peddling.” (Jeffrey D. Sachs, Columbia University Earth Institute Director)

“[Schweizer] is an equal-opportunity investigator, snaring Republicans as well as Democrats.” (Eleanor Clift, Progressive columnist)

“[Clinton Cash] provides a damning portrait of elite and circumspect power and influence.” (Nomi Prins, Demos Senior Fellow)

“Schweizer reports on the Clintons’ enormous graft and corruption…There never has 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 of journalists and then investigators they could be the last.” (American Spectator)

From the Back Cover

Most people assume that the Clintons amassed their considerable wealth through lucrative book deals and speaking gigs that sometimes paid as much as $500,000–$750,000. But who paid these fees, and why? Often foreign businessmen and governments made the enormous payments, believing the Clintons would help advance their interests.

As Peter Schweizer reveals, the Clintons typically blur the lines between politics, philanthropy, and business. Consider the following: Bill flies into a third world country, where he spends time in the company of a businessman described as a "close personal friend." Introductions are made. A deal is struck—usually to exploit natural resources, such as uranium, oil, or timber, on a large and highly profitable scale. Soon after that, enormous contributions are made to the Clinton Foundation from those who benefited from the deal, while Bill is commissioned to deliver a series of highly paid speeches. Moreover, some of these deals require approval or review by the US government and fall within the purview of a powerful senator and secretary of state.

This scenario plays out again and again—in Kazakhstan, Colombia, and other places at the "Wild West" fringe of the global economy. Often the people involved are characters of a kind that an American ex-president (not to mention the spouse of a sitting senator, secretary of state, or presidential candidate) should have nothing to do with.

In this blockbuster exposé, 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 raises serious and alarming questions of judgment, of possible indebtedness to an array of foreign interests, and, ultimately, of fitness for high public office.

I'm kind of startled by this book. There is never a 'smoking gun' moment but there IS a shocking pattern of behavior that must have taken incredible effort to research. The media seems to have failed to do the hard work of researching to this depth, but they are on the story now that Schweizer has pointed them in the correct direction.

I was amazed by how this book was both incredibly readable and incredibly well-sourced. I could easily work through it and if something caught my interest I could quickly dive deeper into the sources provided, many of which were available online.

I'm not sure how much this will affect Clinton's campaign but I do think everybody in America should be aware of the contents of this book. Maybe if they were, we could have a REAL Democratic primary!

Tens of millions of dollars have gone to the Clinton Foundation, and tens of millions more to the ex-president in the form of speaking fees from around the world. Both fundings have primarily come from foreign governments and businessmen, and quite often are temporally associated with deals involving U.S. actions that benefit the donors and required approvals from our government.

It has long been illegal for foreigners to contribute to U.S. political campaigns. Yet, that hasn't deterred the Clintons from this parallel practice. Further, the amounts of these donations, per Schweizer, are often far larger than allowable campaign contributions. Thus, the Clintons have become quite wealthy - Bill Clinton receiving $105 million in speaking fees through 2012..(Also donations to the Clinton library, the Democratic Party, etc.) This pattern of major donations followed by major beneficial U.S. government acts (eg. dropping proposed regulations, DOJ investigations, and the Marc Rich pardon) began in 1999 while Clinton was still president.

An obvious question - Why haven't these foreign donors (eg. in India) given money directly to local charities instead of to the Clinton Foundation? Another - Doesn't this make Hillary's deleting innumerable official emails while Secretary of State especially suspicious?

Prior to Hillary's being approved as Secretary of State, a detailed agreement was worked out requiring public notification of gifts from foreign entities and businessmen, as well as prior approval for donations from foreign government-owned businesses. Unfortunately, this agreement was almost immediately violated.

The bulk of Schweizer's excellent report consists of detailing various donations and possibly associated U.S. government actions.

I purchased this book understanding the flaws that permeate the modern American Political System on both sides of the aisle. At this point in my life, it is hard to be shocked by the moral depravity of our leaders. Bill and Hillary Clinton, however, have crafted a legal structure through the Clinton Foundation that brings to bear the worst aspects of public fraud and influence peddling imaginable. As Hillary says, the Clinton's started this century, "Dead Broke," and yet today, having engaged in no productive business activity beyond public speaking engagements and poorly received books, they have accumulated untold personal wealth and control billions through a "charitable" foundation. Along the way, they have accepted millions of dollars from foreign donors who just happen to have business interests that could be advanced through Hillary's activities as a Senator or Secretary of State and Bill's lobbying efforts as an ex-President. To see one instance where a donation was followed by a favorable outcome might be a coincidence, but Schweizer provides dozens, in what could only be described as a concerted scheme of bribery and influence peddling. To rail against the Republican War on Women, while accepting millions in "donations," from despotic foreign regimes that stone women for adultery is the height of hypocrisy. In a world of equal justice, Bill and Hillary would be headed to prison, not on the campaign trail. This book is extensively researched and footnoted. It is a well-written and cogent depiction of facts that the Clinton Spin Machine seems unable to rationally dispute, from an author who has a history of justifiably attacking both Democrats and Republicans.

No matter what I write about this book someone will take offense, dismiss and attack what I write without reading a word of it. So, when you look at the votes and read the comments, take it all with a box of Morton Salt. This is a book that was written to draw lightning. Some of the writers who defend the Clintons, such as Newsweek, review this book as a hatchet job. Others will dismiss any examination of the author’s motives as unfair and irrelevant. I say, let the facts speak and judge the author on whether he is asking serious questions, presenting honest evidence, and drawing reasonable conclusions. In my view, he is. He is not making claims beyond what the evidence supports, but he does ask why there are always a preposterous number of coincidences around Bill and Hillary and everything they do. And how something that enriches this couple so fabulously can also somehow be characterized as both public service and charity.

Mind you, Hillary was the one claiming poverty when trying to get mortgages (plural) for their homes (also plural). They were part of the political wing that vilified Romney for his wealth without ever blushing at their being in the same ball park as him. Romney at least made his money in the private sector. The Clintons seem to have made theirs by trading on the political connections and power while dancing on a razor’s edge away from the legal definition of illegality. And somehow, for the Clintons and their acolytes, if they aren’t on videotape actually admitting to taking cash for delivering political favors it somehow never happened.
