Germany donated to the Clinton Foundation to promote the Keystone XL Pipeline! Germans, YOUR tax-money @ work…
What is the Keystone XL Pipeline?
There is a pretty interesting email exchange in wikileak, about sorting out the mess of foreign government donations:
“It would be nice to paint a picture of how this money is being put to work – even anecdotally.”
Nice puzzle of seperating donations of endowment and/or specific project. We also learn, how the Clinton Foundation collected international money for the controversial Keystone XL pipeline.
“Recent donors include the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Australia, Germany and a Canadian government agency promoting the Keystone XL pipeline.”
“One of the 2014 donations comes from a Canadian agency promoting the proposed Keystone pipeline, which is favored by Republicans and under review by the Obama administration. The Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development agency of Canada, a first-time donor, gave between $250,000 and $500,000. The donations, which are disclosed voluntarily by the foundation, are given only in ranges. One of the agency’s priorities for 2014-2015 was to promote Keystone XL “as a stable and secure source of energy and energy technology,” according to the agency’s website. Mrs. Clinton’s State Department was involved in approving the U.S. government’s initial environmental-impact statement. Since leaving State, Mrs. Clinton has repeatedly declined to comment on Keystone.”
Well, finally we all know, why Hillary declined to comment on Keystone.
