If this isn’t the pot calling the kettle black, Hillary is blasting a major donor to her foundation.
This is what is known as deflecting. Hillary wants people to believe that she is so above repute, that she can attack her benefactors.
As reported by Breitbart:
In a speech on Monday, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton criticized Clinton Global Initiative donor HSBC saying “There can be no justification or tolerance” for their behavior.
“Stories of misconduct by individuals and institutions in the financial industry are shocking. HSBC allowing drug cartels to launder money [for which, along with sanctions violations, they paid a settlement of $1.92 billion in 2012]. Five major banks pleading guilty to felony charges for conspiring to manipulate currency exchange and interest rates. There can be no justification or tolerance for this kind of criminal behavior.”
According to CNN, HSBC was listed as a “convening sponsor,” the “highest level of support” of the Clinton Global Initiative’s 2014 meeting. The Guardian also reports the Clinton Foundation “received as much as $81m from wealthy international donors who were clients of HSBC’s controversial Swiss bank.”
What’s been worked out on the back end is that these people will all accept their punishment. Don’t rock the boat. If Hillary is able to weather the storm, things will go back to business as usual. Clinton is merely positioning to say that she attacked the largest donor, so how could she POSSIBLY be guilty of anything.
Nice try, Hillary!
