Uncovered in the recent batch of emails released by WikiLeaks is an email from Hillary Clinton about who is funding ISIS – two foreign governments who are also funding Clinton’s presidential campaign and the Clinton Foundation.
The email exchange is between Hillary Clinton and her now presidential campaign chair John Podesta about how to defeat ISIS.
Clinton writes to Podesta on August 17, 2014 that the advance of ISIS does have an advantage – it gives the US an “opportunity to change the way it deals” with the situation. She said the U.S. must “avoid the old school solution” of more military operations, and instead use intelligence resources and special operations troops.
Later in the email, she again rejected traditional military operations, and acknowledged that the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia are “providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL.”
The same governments, who she admitted were funding ISIS, have reportedly also been funding Hillary Clinton and her family’s foundation.
In 2008 it was revealed that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia had given between $10 million and $25 million to the Clinton Foundation, and another group called “Friends of Saudi Arabia,” which was co-founded by a Saudi Prince, has donated between $1 million and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation.
The Intercept also reported that Qatar has donated between $1 million and $5 million to the Foundation, and Kuwait has donated between $5 million and $10 million.
In addition, Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had published a detailed report saying Saudi Arabia has “provided with “full enthusiasm 20% of the cost of Hillary Clinton’s election, even though some events in the country don’t have a positive look to support the king of a woman for presidency.”
Mohammed’s statement continued, “We are pleased that the vast majority of Saudi Arabia’s foreign exchange reserves is in America, and America and the United Nations know that Saudi Arabia is a power and should not ignore it.”
According to Zero Hedge, the report was published on the eve of Prince Mohammed making a visit to meet with officials in the United States in June. He ended his statements in the report with this: “This travel is a historic travel for me.”
Mysteriously, the report (in the Petra News Agency) was then deleted but screenshots were captured, of both the Arabic and the English translation.
The actual figure of the Saudi donation to the Clinton campaign was not given, but as of June 2016, Clinton had raised a little over $211 million during a two-year period, making 20% of that around $42.4 million.
“Saudi Arabia is a power and America should not ignore it,” warned Saudi’s Prince Mohammed.
