Hillary Clinton and Boeing: corruption as usual

+

The Washington Post revealed the close financial relationship between Hillary Clinton and Boeing.

During her tenure as Secretary of State, Mrs. Clinton had hindered her department from soliciting directly the aerospace corporation, all contacts having to go through her. She was deeply involved in 2009 in the sale of Boeing jets to Russia. She had also visited the company installations in China and had coincidentally obtained $ 2 million for the construction of the U.S. expo pavilion at the Beijing Olympics.

In 2010, two months after signing a $ 3.7 billion contract with Russia, Boeing was seen donating 900,000 dollars to the William J. Clinton Foundation.

Today, the company would appear to be the main "Ready for Hillary" contributor, the fund paving the way for Mrs. Clinton’s presidential campaign.
