Hillary Clinton and her supporters openly suggest collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign in the hacking of various Democratic Party websites – but a closer look at Clinton’s time as secretary of state not only reveals a cozy relationship but actions that damage U.S. national security and may have even led to her own emails being hacked.
The revelations come in a new report from “Clinton Cash” author Peter Schweizer, who made headlines last year by outlining several examples of Clinton allegedly using her office at the State Department to benefit big Clinton Foundation donors and those who paid massive sums for Bill Clinton to speak at various events.
Schweizer told WND and Radio America his latest discoveries paint a very troubling picture.
“It has that reeking of kind of an insider cronyism deal, not to mention what we would soon learn about the national security implications of this project,” Schweizer said.
At issue is a massive high-tech project called Skolkovo.
“It was an initiative to get U.S. tech companies to invest both money and technology into a Russian version of Silicon Valley,” Schweizer explained. “That version of Silicon Valley was, of course, a government-directed one, not like the Silicon Valley we have in the United States.”
Why was the Obama administration interested in laying America’s technological advancements bare for Russia to see? Schweizer said it’s the latest version of detente, the Nixon-Kissinger strategy of thawing relations through collaborative efforts.
“The idea is that by helping Russia develop its version of Silicon Valley, we would make them more prosperous and supposedly more stable and more cooperative,” Schweizer explained. “They would be tied to us economically, so it would make them less aggressive. That was the theory.”
As with the previous allegations of pay-to-play, Schweizer said the money trail here is also very curious.
“Many of them had close Clinton links financially. Of the 28 American companies that were invited to participate, 17 of them were major Clinton Foundation donors,” Schweizer said. “On the Russian side, the Russian official directing it was a major Clinton Foundation donor, as were some of the participants.”
