Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

OMG, Sweden Too Pays Off the Clintons?

We’re sadly all to0 used to hearing about some sleazy, misogynistic Middle Eastern regime buying itself some Clinton love via “donations” to the Clinton Foundation, and/or shelling out outrageous sums to hear Bill make the same speech each makes everywhere. But now it seems like Sweden, too, is in the game.

Sweden. That nice, safe, Scandinavian country that has given us IKEA and AbbA.

We now learn that the Clinton Foundation set up a fundraising arm in Sweden that collected $26 million in donations at the same time that country was lobbying Hillary’s State Department to forgo sanctions that threatened its thriving business with Iran.

The Swedish entity, called the William J. Clinton Foundation Insamlingsstiftelse, was never disclosed to or cleared by State Department ethics officials, even though one of its largest sources of donations was a Swedish government-sanctioned lottery.

As the money flowed to the foundation from Sweden, Mrs. Clinton’s team in Washington declined to blacklist any Swedish firms despite warnings from career officials at the U.S. Embassy in Stockholm that Sweden was growing its economic ties with Iran and potentially undercutting Western efforts to end Tehran’s rogue nuclear program, diplomatic cables show.

“Sweden does not support implementing tighter financial sanctions on Iran” and believes “more stringent financial standards could hurt Swedish exports,” one such cable from 2009 alerted Mrs. Clinton’s office in Washington.

Separately, U.S. intelligence was reporting that Sweden’s second-largest employer, telecommunications giant Ericsson AB, was pitching cellphone tracking technology to Iran that could be used by the country’s security services. Mr. Clinton personally pocketed a record $750,000 speech fee from Ericsson, one of the firms at the center of the sanctions debate.

The Clinton’s Swedish fundraising shell escaped public notice, both because its incorporation papers were filed in Stockholm — some 4,200 miles from America’s shores — and the identities of its donors were lumped by Mr. Clinton’s team into the disclosure reports of his U.S.-based charity, blurring the lines between what were two separate organizations incorporated under two different countries’ laws.

A spokesperson for Mrs. Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign declined comment. Of course she did.
