Clinton Cash

Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich is a 2015 New York Times bestselling book by Peter Schweizer, in which he investigates donations made to the Clinton Foundation by foreign entities, paid speeches made by Bill and Hillary Clinton, and the state of the Clintons’ finances since leaving the White House in 2001. It was published by Broadside Books, a division of HarperCollins. It has been adapted into both a film and a graphic novel.

Clinton Cash is an investigation of the foreign benefactors of Bill and Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.[1] It investigates alleged connections between Clinton Foundation donors and Hillary Clinton’s work at the State Department.[2]

The book argues that the Clinton family accepted lavish donations and speaking fees from foreign donors at times when the State Department was considering whether to award large contracts to groups and people affiliated with those donors.[3]

In May 2016, a film adaptation of the book, funded by co-founder of Government Accountability Institute and Breitbart News executive chairman Stephen Bannon (CEO of the Donald Trump presidential campaign, 2016), was screened at the Cannes Film Festival.[20][21]

Time magazine reported that conservatives were not the intended audience for the film adaptation of the book: “Environmentalists. Anti-nuke activists. Gay-rights advocates. Good-government folks. They’re all going to find themselves increasingly uncomfortable over claims that the likely Democratic nominee, in the film’s words, takes cash from the “darkest, worst corners of the world.”[22]

The film’s U.S. premiere was scheduled for July 24, 2016 in Philadelphia (prior to the 2016 Democratic National Convention there) and the film had a limited release in four other major U.S. cities in early August.[20][21] The release has not gained enough attention from professional reviewers to gain scores on either the Rotten Tomatoes or MetaCritic websites. On that same day, Breitbart News uploaded the film onto YouTube.[23]
