Emails Show Hillary Clinton Helped Friend Obtain LUCRATIVE FEDERAL CONTRACTS
The Clintons have always been known for their pay-to-play politics. Donors fund them and in return, they help them get all the tax breaks and lucrative federal contracts they want.
One of Hillary Clinton’s most frequent favor-seekers when she was secretary of state was former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, a longtime Clinton friend, an endorser of Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, and an Africa expert with deep business ties on the continent.
Wilson’s requests for help — on behalf of an American engineering contractor he consulted for called Symbion Power — is a recurring theme in each monthly Clinton email dump.
The latest two batches of records are no different.
They show that Wilson, who is perhaps most famous as the husband of ex-CIA operative Valerie Plame, emailed Clinton on Dec. 22, 2009 seeking help for Symbion, which was pursuing a U.S. Agency of International Development (USAID) contract for work in Afghanistan.
It pays to be friends with the Clintons.
