In New Hampshire on Saturday, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul took aim at Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation’s mega millions in donated foreign money.
Appearing at the BeanTowne cafe, Paul said, “Anybody here think it’s a good idea for Hillary Clinton to be accepting money from Saudi Arabia? Anybody here think that she ought to send it back to Saudi Arabia?”
“This is something we should be organizing a boycott of,” said Paul. “Do you remember how when South Africa was misbehaving, we organized a boycott of South Africa? We should be boycotting Saudi Arabia, not taking money from Saudi Arabia’s government.”
Paul said that Clinton should return the money from countries with anti women’s rights policies:
“In countries that stone people to death for adultery and imprison people for adultery, this is the kind of thing you would think someone for women’s rights would be standing up against, instead of accepting thinly veiled bribes,” said Paul to Politico.
“There has been much talk of a war on women. There is indeed a war on women — in Saudi Arabia. When Hillary Clinton claims she will support women’s rights, ask her why she accepted millions of dollars from.”
According to the Wall Street Journal, the Clinton Foundation received $7.3 million from Saudi Arabians from 1999 to 2014, based on contributions of more than $50,000.
Paul didn’t mention in this speech the House of Saud’s funding of terrorism, although he mentioned this previously (see video here).
As reported previously via BenSwann.com, according to Clinton, ISIS has received funding from the Saudis.
Eight years after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, Clinton, wrote in a cable leaked by WikiLeaks that “Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for al-Qaeda, the Taliban, LeT (Lashkar-e-Taiba in Pakistan) and other terrorist groups.”
Senator Bob Graham, the co-chairman of the official inquiry into 9/11, has said the Washington has turned a blind eye to the Saudis support.
“I believe that the failure to shine a full light on Saudi actions and particularly its involvement in 9/11 has contributed to the Saudi ability to continue to engage in actions that are damaging to the U.S. – and in particular their support for Isis,” he said.
Saudi and foreign influence on American elections should not only raise eyebrows but should be condemned by both Americans and the media.
