Do Americans want their country secretly ruled by wealthy foreigners? Do even so-called progressives want such a thing? That would be hard to believe. However, new evidence makes it clear that one candidate is doing just this, thanks to the growing power of lobbyists knowns as “donation bundlers.”
Who are they? What do they do? What do they want? And who do they really work for?
The Washington Free Beacon investigates:
A number of Hillary Clinton’s top lobbyist bundlers, who have raised millions for her presidential campaign, either directly represent foreign entities or work at firms that represent foreign entities, according to documents from the Justice Department’s Foreign Agents Registration Unit.
Tony Podesta, owner of the Podesta Group and brother of John Podesta, the chairman of Clinton’s campaign, is a top bundler for Hillary for America. Podesta has bundled $267,835 in contributions to date. Podesta was hired to work on behalf of Saudi interests.
Saudi Arabia has built an extensive lobbying and public relations presence in the United States, the Washington Post reported in April. It has also supplied the Clinton Foundation with millions. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has given between $10 and $25 million to the foundation while Friends of Saudi Arabia has contributed between $1 and $5 million.
According to this story, these highly paid lobbyists also represent powerful interests in Russia, Turkey, Japan and Mexico.
So how would these interests somehow influence a Hillary Clinton administration’s decisions about the Turkish dictatorship and its NATO membership? Or the strengthening of America’s southern border?
Even liberal Democrats surely must ask themselves how this influence could impact Clinton’s promises on progressive causes? Won’t she be more beholden to these foreign powers than to the people at home?
It’s just another reason that Hillary can’t be allowed to win in November.
