Foreign Influence in US Elections

While the Obama White House and his Lame-stream media allies continue their pandering, based on a false narrative, that Russia “hacked” the presidential election, they may be right about one thing, but it’s not what you may think. The 2016 election was fraught with foreign influence. However, it did not come from Russia, and it was not to Donald Trump’s benefit.

As reported by Petra News Agency, the official news of Jordan, Saudi Arabia was funding 20% of Hillary CLinton’s campaign, amounting to more than $40 million in illegal donations. Although it is incredibly hypocritical that the candidate running to be the first female US President was being funded by a country that oppresses women, it explains a lot of her policy positions. In the past, the Gulf Kingdom has donated an upwards of $25 million to the Clinton Foundation while John Podesta received $200,000 from the Centre for Studies and Media Affairs at the Saudi Royal Court for a month-long project to provide “public relations services”.

These revelations are, no doubt, incredibly disturbing, especially considering some of Hillary’s connections, including long-time aide and mistress Huma Abedin who is known to have routinely handled classified information, despite not possessing any of the proper security clearances. Huma grew up in Saudi Arabia and was the former editor of radical Muslim publication “Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs” that was started by her mother.

The Clinton Foundation has also received funding directly from the Communist Chinese to the tune of at least $2 million. These “donations” were accomplished by funneling the money through U.S. subsidiaries.

Hillary and her campaign’s actions are not only unethical but clearly illegal. Article I, Section 9 of the US Constitution states, “no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.” and the FEC explicitly bans foreign donations from federal elections.

While the Clinton Foundation scandal has been discussed for months, in detail, with the definitive source being Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich by Peter Schweizer, I decided to create a Tableau data visualization highlighting some of Cliton’s most egrigious pay for play “donations”. Feel free to check out the interactive dashboard below, exposing some of the many countries Hillary has taken bribes from.
