This story (see below) about the Clintons and money, though a new story, should not really be surprising. With the notable exception of Jimmy Carter, in recent decades former (and now prospective!) Presidents have increasingly been using their turns in the Executive Suite to increase their personal income and wealth. What is notable about the Clintons is, first, the sheer magnitude of their lust for lucre; and, second, their emphasis on their apparent use of their charitable foundation to promote their private financial purposes (and HC's political purposes) as well as laudable charitable ends.
NYTimes, April 23, 2015:
As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.
And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.
At the time, both Rosatom and the United States government made promises intended to ease concerns about ceding control of the company’s assets to the Russians. Those promises have been repeatedly broken, records show.
