Blowing smoke: More Clinton dirty money

An Indonesian tobacco magnate secured U.S. government assistance for his foundation after donating to Hillary Clinton’s and hiring lobbyists, themselves Clinton Foundation donors, who worked for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign.

The Putera Sampoerna Foundation, founded by the Indonesian tobacco heir Putera Sampoerna, got the U.S. government to underwrite millions in loans offered by the foundation and secured high-profile support for its activities from Sec. Clinton and other senior federal officials.

Sampoerna’s financial ties to the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation and some of its major supporters could raise additional questions about its donors’ favorable treatment by the State Department while Clinton helmed the agency.

The PSF is one of those donors: it has contributed between $1,000 and $5,000 in 2008. A Clinton Foundation spokesman said that the donation was a membership fee for the Clinton Global Initiative’s 2008 meeting in Hong Kong.

According to PSF’s website, Bill Clinton personally invited them to represent Indonesia at the meeting.

  • Mike J. Hrivnak

    People will ignore every lie, crime and treasonous act from these people. Why? Because the “feel” these people want what they want. The Clintons will say anything they think will bring in the votes.

        No, the low (and no) info voters are the teatard republicans that only watch Fox News (NOT).

  • Bob Stewart

    I guess we know how Hillary will answer questions about the dangers of smoking since she is getting money from the tobacco lord in Indonesia. Doesn’t this show how much Hillary cares about health? What a hypocrite.

    • C. W. Good

      Hillary doesn’t give a damn about anything or anyone but Hillary period. Democrats should be shot for foisting this kind of person on the American people.

  • John VanderKelen

    Has Chelsea Clinton been influenced by her mama? I thought Democrats were against smoking unless it was enabled by welfare spending.

  • DEW

    All her polling is with democrats and that’s why it’s staying as high as it is….

  • David in MA

    How many ways are there to launder political funds?

  • Gerry Costa

    And there are still people who want this scum criminal to run for president of our country. Just how ignorant or how low has the American voter gotten ???

    • C. W. Good

      Pretty low Gerry, pretty low.
