Donations to the Clinton Foundation by Swiss bank UBS increased tenfold after Hillary Clinton intervened to settle a dispute with the IRS early in her tenure as secretary of state, according to a published report.
According to the Wall Street Journal, total donations by UBS to the foundation grew from less than $60,000 at the end of 2008 to approximately $600,000 by the end of 2014. The Journal reports that the bank also lent $32 million through entrepreneurship and inner-city loan programs it launched in association with the foundation, while paying former President Bill Clinton $1.5 million to participate in a series of corporate question-and-answer sessions with UBS Chief Executive Bob McCann.

... another amazing coincidence ...
“while paying former President Bill Clinton $1.5 million to participate in a series of corporate question-and-answer sessions with UBS Chief Executive Bob McCann.”
So they pay 1.5 million for corporate question and answer sessions to a guy who never held down a real job in his life or owned a business?
UBS is simply playing the crony capitalist game with one of the best in the business - HRC.
It’s either pay, or get shaken down.
When I worked for a military contractor we were trained regularly that even the appearance of a conflict of interest would be dealt with severely. In the legal system, you often don’t need to prove a particular crime took place, but only the pattern that means crimes are taking place. Clinton fails all the tests I was taught about whether something is improper and possibly illegal. However, since she wiped clean all the evidence, she will apparently skate free by yelling...political conspiracy!
I think we need to be concerned more with exactly what kind of access these countries are buying. Our country is being sold piece by piece. One day soon we’ll wake up and see that we don’t own it anymore.
Hillary is the poster child for corruption, untempered by any good-ol-boy (or girl) charm like Bill.
I hope she croaks.
I really do think that the Clinton Foundation was used to launder bribe money to and from FIFA officials in violation of national and international tax laws. And that could land both Bill and Hillary Clinton in massive legal hot water not only in the USA and Switzerland, but possible in multiple European countries, South American countries, etc.
Teneo was promoted as a dual-track company with one side devoted to merchant and investment banking and the other side set up to provide image and strategy consulting services.
Teneo clients paid staggering monthly retainers up to $250,000 and reportedly were "encouraged" to give to the Clinton Foundation. In turn, foundation donors were encouraged to use the services of Teneo.
Teneo Clients included Bank of America, Dow Chemical, UBS Wealth Management and Coca-Cola.
The idea for Teneo was to have Fortune 400 companies pay large monthly stipends in exchange for access to Band, Clinton and their massive international network.
The group would consult with the companies, offer strategic advice and help them overcome issues in various countries across the globe, David Halper wrote in Clinton Inc.
But a former Teneo employee told Halper that what the clients really got was nothing, other than an implicit promise of access to Clinton.....and to his wife at the State Dept.
Clinton was the key to Teneos success. The companies paid b/c they needed access to the ex-president, a source told Halper. It was he who Teneo was selling to their corporate clients.
Or, more precisely, it was their proximity to power ex-President Clinton, and his wife, who was then secretary of state and their Rolodexes, which were a natural extension of the work they had done over the years for the Clintons.
In exchange for access, Bill Clinton was given a contract with Teneo worth $3.5 million, Halper said. It is unclear, however, how much Clinton was actually paid.
A short time later Hillary's top aide was given a special deal --- Huma Abedin worked for the US State Dept and as a consultant----Teneo was one of her clients.
NOTE: When L/E investigated the Orgy Island case involving underage prostirutes, they invovered Doug Band And Bill CLinton listed/ 21 phone nos and email addresses.
L/E recognizes multiple phone nos as the MO for money laundering and tax evasion......perhaps mail fraud.
In another infamous Teneo deal, Bill Clinton pocketed $50,000 a month from Jon Corzine's hedge fund....which misplaced $1.3 Billion client funds.
Then-US Sen Clinton and Sen Corzine.
Agreed and Bob McDonnell (R-VA)and his wife went-to/are-in jail for much less.
Hey! That's Frogism!!!
I'm offended...and will march in the next Frog Pride parade to protest & expose your frogism!
That’s right, and that’s a side that people don’t always see.
They understand corporate bribery, but they don’t realize how politicians punish those who decline to donate. Companies that don’t go along lose.
LOL her daughter is living off her stolen millions. How do these evil people sleep at night.
Waco, Whitewater, Vince Foster, what difference does it make now?
Laws are only for those whom the Department of Just Us chooses to protect.
The United States of Sodom and Gomorrah should re-open the case from Nuremburg.
Swiss bank’s donations to Clinton Foundation increased after Hillary intervention in IRS dispute.

>>How do these evil people sleep at night.
With medical/technocratic assistance?
And when the medication destroys their liver or kidneys there’s...
She took bribes.
I suspect the rest of congress is doing the same... selling thousands of books no one wants to read to donors..
Giving ‘speeches’ no one wants to hear for hundreds of thousands of dollars... Laws created to keep upping the cost of running for office... to keep outsiders OUT and political consultants swimming in money.
It’s corruption at the highest level.
On silk sheets in 5 star hotels. A 24/7 staff, serving gourmet meals, so you can close down Bergdorf-Goodman when you get a $1,200 haircut and style before you hop onto a 'donated' 300 gallon an hour private jet so you can make a speech on your environmental concerns... You'd be surprised at how it helps you relax.
No conscience gives you dreamless slumber.
