Here’s One More Thing Communicated Via Hillary’s Email Server – Is This the Absolute Worst of Her Crimes?
What if Hillary communicated classified information on her private server that involved insider trading and economic market influence on a global scale?
What if she traded insider information and influence to protect a family member from losing millions of dollars in an ill-conceived hedge fund?
Well, newly released emails between Hillary Clinton and Clinton Foundation confidant, Sidney Blumenthal seem to indicate Hillary’s involvement in using classified information to influence the Greek market melt down and protect her son-in-law’s hedge fund:
Clinton stepped down as secretary of state in 2013 to run for president. But newly released emails from 2012 show that she and Clinton Foundation consultant, Sidney Blumenthal, shared classified information about how German leadership viewed the prospects for a Greek bailout. Clinton also shared “protected” State Department information about Greek bonds with her husband at the same time that her son-in-law aimed his hedge fund at Greece.
That America’s top diplomat kept a sharp eye on intelligence assessing the chances of a bailout of the Greek central bank is not a problem. However, sharing such sensitive information with friends and family would have been highly improper. Federal regulations prohibit the use of nonpublic information to further private interests or the interests of others. The mere perception of a conflict of interest is unacceptable.
Through its press representative, Eaglevale declined to comment for this story. Clinton’s campaign press office did not respond to a request for comment.
The same month that Eaglevale incorporated its offshore arm, Gary Gensler, the head of the United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission, which polices hedge funds, emailed Clinton that a bailout by the European Central Bank could “turn market sentiment” in favor of Greek bonds.
Gensler had previously worked as co-head of finance at Goldman Sachs; he is now the financial director of Clinton’s election campaign. Goldman Sachs has donated up to $5 million to the Clinton Foundation and $860,000 to Hillary Clinton’s political campaigns. Shortly after Clinton resigned, Goldman Sachs paid her $675,000 in speaking fees.
Clinton’s deputy in charge of economic policy was Robert Hormats, a former vice chairman of Goldman Sachs. Hormats and Clinton shared an extensive email trail about the possibility of bailing out Greece, including classified materials, and internal state department memos about the debt from the U.S. ambassador to Greece.
This one email exchange points to one huge conflict of interest, sharing classified information, insider trading, and crony capitalism to protect her donors and a family member.
It’s like the Power Ball Winning Lottery ticket of political corruption.
