The Clinton’s are notorious for bumming free flights on luxury private jets as well as stays in pricey hotels as “gifts” at the expense of donors to the Clinton Foundation.
A recent WikiLeaks released email from November 22, 2011 shows Ira Magaziner, the CEO of the Clinton Health Access Initiative telling John Podesta as well as multiple members of the Clinton Foundation that Clinton has been requested to thank Morocco’s King Mohammed VI for “offering his plane to the conference in Ethiopia.”
Mohammed Donated approximately $28 million to the Clinton Foundation and on this one specific date allowed Clinton to fly 3,367 miles from Rabat, Morocco, to Addis Ababa for free on his private jet.
This free flight Clinton took was to attend a conference organized by Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Al-Amoudi, the second wealthiest billionaire in Saudi Arabia who has donated up to $10 million to the Clinton Foundation.
Charles Ortel, a Wall Street analyst told The Daily Caller News that Clinton’s use of these free flights are “highly illegal and it’s likely that the owners of these aircraft took tax deductions as a gift to the Clinton Foundation.”
The Daily Caller also reported other instances of the Clinton’s taking free stays and flights that can be seen Here:
Clinton also stayed in 2014 at a five-star hotel in Jaipur, India on official Clinton Foundation business and stayed in a $13,900 per night villa — which was not itemized on the foundation’s tax returns.
There are a large number of other free trips and expensive perks Clinton and his family have enjoyed, many from foundation donors.
Vinod Gupta, former CEO of InfoUSA, was sanctioned by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for using company assets – such as cars, yachts and luxury vacations — without approval from the board or any other authorized party. He was later fired and fined $9 million.
But Gupta also gave “Clinton and his family” $900,000 worth of free air travel on the company jet, according to the SEC.
One free Gupta trip in 2002 was for Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton to fly free to Acapulco, Mexico for a family vacation, according to a New York Times report.
Another InfoUSA jet ride was for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton to travel to New Mexico that cost $18,480. A group called “Friends of Hillary” paid a paltry $2,127 for the trip.
Gupta has contributed up to $5 million to the foundation, according to the Clinton Foundation.
The Saudi Crown Prince in 2004 — now King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz — gave Clinton his personal Boeing 767 to fly with 20 of his best friends to Davos, Switzerland to attend the annual global gabfest led by the world’s business kingpins, according to Joe Conason, a Clinton supporter and author of the new book “Man of the World.”
The Saudi king has donated more than $25 million to the Clinton Foundation.
Clinton also traveled numerous times free of charge on film producer Stephen L. Bing’s Boeing 737. Bing has donated up to $25 million to the foundation
The former president has flown on Ron Burkle’s private jets through Central Asia, India and China, and Clinton pocketed $15 million to be a part of Burkle’s Yucaipa Partners hedge fund.
While at Yucaipa, Clinton became a business partner with United Arab Emirates Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum and his Dubai Investment Group. The Dubai Foundation and the United Arab Emirates have each contributed $5 million to the Clinton Foundation.
Perhaps the most notorious freebie flights were when Clinton flew 26 times on the private jet owned by sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. His aircraft, dubbed the “Lolita Express,” was supposed to be equipped with a bed for sex with underage girls. On at least five occasions, Clinton dumped his Secret Service detail for the flights, according to Fox News.
