Top Clinton Lobbyist Bundlers Tied to Foreign Banks, Governments Firms represent Saudi Arabian, Russian, Turkish, Mexican, and Japanese interests

A number of Hillary Clinton’s top lobbyist bundlers, who have raised millions for her presidential campaign, either directly represent foreign entities or work at firms that represent foreign entities, according to documents from the Justice Department’s Foreign Agents Registration Unit.

Hillary for America, Clinton’s campaign committee, has hauled in more than $7 million in bundled lobbyist contributions since its inception. The committee finished2015 with $4.1 million in bundled lobbyist contributions. It has since added more than $2.9 million to its coffers from lobbyists, with $1.2 million of that amount pouring in during the second quarter of 2016, from April 1 to June 30.

Tony Podesta, owner of the Podesta Group and brother of John Podesta, the chairman of Clinton’s campaign, is a top bundler for Hillary for America. Podesta has bundled $267,835 in contributions to date. Podesta was hired to work on behalf of Saudi interests.
Saudi Arabia has built an extensive lobbying and public relations presence in the United States, theWashington Post reported in April. It has also supplied the Clinton Foundation with millions. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has given between $10 and $25 million to the foundation while Friends of Saudi Arabia has contributed between $1 and $5 million.

Hillary for America. Is that also Saudi Arabia, Russia, Turkey, Mexico, and Japan for America?

Didn't think so. So, in accepting that cash, Hillary shows that she isn't really for America at all.
