Was Bill Clinton’s $48 Million for Speeches when Hillary was SOS ‘PAY TO PLAY?’

How does you make $48 MILLION dollars off in “speeches?”
That’s what Bill Clinton made from speaking engagements while his wife worked for Barack Obama.
Can you imagine what was REALLY going on?
It’s called pay to play, folks and it was well documented in the bombshell documentary Clinton Cash.
Hopefully, Jeff Sessions will get to the bottom of it.

A lot has been made about President Trump’s connections to Russia, yet very little evidence has been presented.
To the contrary, a lot of new reports are being released on Trump’s 2016 rival, former FLOTUS Hillary Clinton, and her ties to the Putin-led nation.
For example, then-SecState Clinton shipped 10 captured Russian spies back to Moscow before the FBI had a chance to conduct interviews. Read all about it at this link.
In other news surrounding the Clintons, the couple earned $48 million for speeches given by Bill while Hillary was still serving as Barack Obama’s chief diplomat.
From a 2014 Judicial Watch report:
A joint investigation by the Washington Examiner and the nonprofit watchdog group Judicial Watch found that former President Clinton gave 215 speeches and earned $48 million while his wife presided over U.S. foreign policy, raising questions about whether the Clintons fulfilled ethics agreements related to the Clinton Foundation during Hillary Clinton‘s tenure as secretary of state.
According to documents obtained by Judicial Watch and released Wednesday in an ongoing Freedom of Information Act case, State Department officials charged with reviewing Bill Clinton’s proposed speeches did not object to a single one.
Some of the speeches were delivered in global hotspots and were paid for by entities with business or policy interests in the U.S.
The documents also show that in June 2011, the State Department approved a consulting agreement between Bill Clinton and a controversial Clinton Foundation adviser, Doug Band.
The consultancy with Band’s Teneo Strategy ended eight months later following an uproar over Teneo’s ties to the failed investment firm MF Global.
State Department legal advisers, serving as “designated agency ethics officials,” approved Bill Clinton’s speeches in ChinaRussiaSaudi ArabiaEgypt, the United Arab EmiratesPanama,TurkeyTaiwanIndia, the Cayman Islands and other countries.
A little more:
The memos approving Mr. Clinton’s speeches were routinely copied to Cheryl Mills, Hillary Clinton’s senior counsel and chief of staff.
Mills is a longtime Clinton troubleshooter who defended the president during his impeachment. In the Benghazi affair, Mills reportedly berated a high-ranking official at the U.S. embassy in Libya for talking to a Republican congressman.
Under State Department protocols, a “designated agency ethics official” is assigned to advise the secretary of state about “potential or actual conflicts of interest.”
