No Accountability: Hillary Clinton, HSBC, and a Rigged System

Monday, November 7, 2016 11:19

(Before It's News)

The Political Elite currently have the unbelievable freedom to groom, choose, and reward the very people who are suppose to keep them accountable to the American people. This outrageous system is wholly reminiscent of the corrupt nature of the corporate auditing system in the 1980′s.  During which time, CEOs were allowed to hire the “independent” auditors who were suppose to keep them accountable.  Of course this “accountability” system failed spectacularly.  CEOs would use this freedom to shop around until they found an auditor who was willing to sign off on corrupt accounting practices.
 
The system we have in politics today is no different.  Why should we expect elite politicians to be held accountable when they can shop around for people who are willing to be complicit with their corruption?
 
Below is an intertwined example of “favor trading” involving the Clintons, HSBC, and prominent “accountability” officials.  Keep in mind that in politics, there are never just “two team trades” as you might find in baseball. Two team trades are much too transparent, leaving both parties vulnerable to intense scruitiny.  Instead, it’s necessary to invovle a third or fourth team in the process in order to mask the underlying political “favor trading” that’s taking place.  In the case below, HSBC plays the third party in these political trades.
 
 
When reading the following information, think about this quote by Lincoln Steffens: 
 
“Corruption is treason.  That the man, who, elected to maintain the institutions of the government by the people, sells them out, is a traitor.  Whether he be a constable, a legislator, a judge, or a boss.  His act is not alone bribery, but treason.”
 
Eric Holder (former U.S. Attorney General)

• Appointed as United States Attorney for the District of Columbia by President Bill Clinton.

• In his final days with the Clinton administration, Holder carried out his duties with Clinton’s last-minute pardon of fugitive and Democratic contributor Marc Rich.

• In 2013, Eric Holder refused to prosecute HSBC Holdings of money laundering charges, not because of insufficient evidence, but because the DOJ was worried that it would cause a “global financial disaster.” 

• In July 2015, Holder rejoined Covington & Burling, the law firm at which he worked before becoming Attorney General. The law firm’s clients have included many of the large banks Holder declined to prosecute for their alleged role in the financial crisis.

James Comey (FBI Director)

• Federal prosecutor and Democrat Mary Jo White was appointed to investigate the pardons (Marc Rich). She was later replaced by Republican James Comeywho found no illegality on Clinton’s. 

• In 2009, Comey was considered for a position as Supreme Court Justice by Barack Obama.

• In 2013, Comey was also appointed to the board of directors of HSBC Holdings, immediately following Eric Holder‘s settlement with HSBC.

• In June 2013 President Barack Obama nominated James Comey to be the next Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  The position is a full ten-year term lasting until 2023.

• On July 5, 2016, Comey announced the FBI’s recommendation that the United States Department of Justice file no criminal charges relating to the Hillary Clinton email controversy.  

Loretta Lynch (Current U.S. Attorney General)

• In 1999, she was nominated by President Bill Clinton to serve as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York.

• In December 2012, HSBC was able to negotiate more favorable terms with Loretta Lynch after previously accepting Eric Holder’s ”take it or leave it” money-laundering deal.

• On November 8, 2014, President Barack Obama nominated Lynch for the position of U.S. Attorney General

• On July 1, 2016, Loretta Lynch met with Bill Clinton on the Phoenix tarmac for 20-25 minutes days before FBI director announces Clinton email recommendations.  They proceed to discuss “grandchildren and golf”.

The Clinton Foundation

• ”The charitable foundation run by Hillary Clinton and her family has received as much as $81m from wealthy international donors who were clients of HSBC’s controversial Swiss bank.”

• In 2014, HSBC gave between $500,000 and $1 million for the Clinton Global Initiative yearly meeting, which qualifies the bank in the highest support tier possible for the event.

• Additionally, the link and title head below turned up in a google search of “Clinton Foundation HSBC“.

 

 
After you’ve read this, ask yourself if we can truly believe (with reasonable certainty) that government agents like Eric Holder, James Comey, and Loretta Lynch are truly acting as independent agents of the American people.  Or whether they are beholden to those who gave them money and power; i.e. Bill & Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, HSBC, etc.  Anything less than a resounding vote of innocence and confidence should be troubling to say the least.  Furthermore, it should be grounds for investigation into corruption (and treason) at the highest levels of government.

  • Very nice article. Well connected dots. Clearly lots of backroom dealings with this group of criminals. Wait, what is the definition of “conspiracy”… when two or more people get together in secret to plot criminal action? I’d say this isn’t conspiracy theory but conspiracy fact.
