Obama’s White House: Masters at Pay-for Play
As Democrats continue their efforts to find some kind of way to connect Trump to the Russians for one reason. They know pay-for-play ran rampant in the Obama administration.
The so-called “scandal-free” administration had more scandals than 10 white presidents.
And we learn of the latest bombshell from Author Peter Schweizer’s new book, Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends.
In the book Schweizer reveals how Hunter Biden secured a billion-dollar deal with Chinese investors ten days after his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden visited China in 2013.
Breitbart News reported:
According to an exclusive New York Post excerpt from the book, the Biden billion-dollar China deal occurred as follows. In 2013, Hunter Biden was managing partner in the private equity firm Rosemont Seneca Partners. The Chinese funds were managed by Rosemont Seneca Bohai, which did not involve Chris Heinz.
In December of that year, Vice President Biden and his son Hunter flew aboard Air Force Two to China. Ten days after the trip, a subsidiary of the Bank of China named Bohai Capital signed an exclusive deal with Hunter Biden and Chris Heinz’s Rosemont to form a $1 billion joint-investment fund called Bohai Harvest RST. The deal was later increased to $1.5 billion.
“The Chinese government was literally funding a business that they co-owned along with the sons of two of America’s most powerful decision makers,” writes Schweizer in Secret Empires.
Appearing on Fox News, former deputy assistant to President Donald Trump, Dr. Sebastian Gorka, said he believes the agreement is a massive scandal outside of Uranium One.

So, add this new shiny badge of corruption to the list of massive scandals that was allowed under Obama’s watch.
But Biden wasn’t the only member of Obama’s administration who was colluding with the Chinese. The Clintons have a long history of interests with China as well.
From 2001-2007 Bill Clinton gave 7 speeches earning in China, and received $7 million for his “work”. Not surprisingly, at the same time, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton championed the United States’ “pivot” toward Asia. Afterwards, Bill Clinton gave an additional four speeches in China or to Chinese-sponsored entities in the U.S., earning $1.7 million.
But don’t expect the Obama administration acolytes to stop their collusion with just the Chinese. They benefited from the Saudi government as well.
While Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state, Bill Clinton gave two speeches in Saudi Arabia, earning a total of $600,000.
In January 2011, for example, Bill Clinton spoke at a global business forum in Riyadh founded by the Saudi Investment Authority and sponsored by the Dabbagh Group, a commercial colossus with close ties to the Saudi royal family.
His fee for the speech: $300,000.
Overall, the Clinton Foundation has received staggering sums from Saudi benefactors — between $18 million and $50 million. (The foundation’s donations are reported in ranges, not specific numbers.)
And of course we cant forget the Russians.
“In Russia, Bill Clinton gave two speeches for $625,000. One was to the Russian investment bank, Renaissance Capital, at a 2010 event titled “Russian and the Commonwealth of Independent States: Going Global.”
The State Department background memo described the bank as “focused on the emerging markets of Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Sub-Saharan Africa.”
The Russian Standard Bank also donated to the foundation.”
It wasn’t long after these speeches the Uranium One deal was made.
There is a lot of coincidence between speeches, donations to the Clinton campaign, and shift of U.S. policy by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. And now we learn the exact same thing was happening with the Biden’s.
So, what really did Obama’s pick’s for cabinet members do the entire time they were in office for 8 long years besides enriching themselves?
Imagine if Mike Pence had such baggage? Does anybody think the Left would have ignored it?
We all know that if Trump had any staffer who profited from Russian, Chinese, or other foreign interest to the degree that Obama’s satellites have, there would be hell to pay. Only ONE speech by any Trump staffer to any foreign entity, and the Left could call for Trump’s head.
But the Obama administration can do no wrong, when it comes to the Left. And that’s why that clown declared that he had a scandal-free administration.
