Leaked Email Shows Hillary Camp Internally Bragging About “Killing” a Story Linking Bill Clinton $500K Moscow Speech to Magnitsky Bill
As TGP previously reported, former president, Bill Clinton gave a speech to the Russia-based Renaissance Capital in Moscow on June 29, 2010 for $500,000.
Wikileaks leaked an email from the ‘Podesta emails’ showing Hillary’s camp internally bragging that they killed a Bloomberg story linking Bill Clinton’s $500K Moscow cash to the Magnitsky bill. Let’s talk about Russian collusion, shall we?
FOX News reported on Clinton’s speech in Russia:
Trump White House officials now are trying to draw attention to that speech and the Clintons’ ties to Russia in a bid to counter criticism over Trump Jr.’s now-infamous meeting.
“If you want to talk about having relationships with Russia, I’d look no further than the Clintons,” Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said at a briefing last week. “Bill Clinton was paid half a million dollars to give a speech to a Russian bank, personally thanked by President Putin.”
The former president indeed had received a personal call from then-Prime Minister Vladimir Putin expressing his appreciation for the speech. According to Mrs. Clinton’s ethics disclosure form filed while she was secretary of State, Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 by the Russia-based finance company Renaissance Capital for his June 29, 2010, speech in Moscow to its employees and guests attending the company’s annual conference.
