Sen. Rand Paul keeps referring to “big news coming” about Hillary Clinton’s foreign donations, and now it appears the big secret will be revealed in May.
Last week, in a speech to the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, the Kentucky Republican and presidential candidate said, “There’s going to be stuff coming out about the Clinton Foundation and their donations from different companies that get special approval from the secretary of state. Coming out in the next couple of weeks,” Bloomberg reported.
According to The New York Times, that “stuff” is a book titled “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” by Peter Schweizer.
Schweizer investigated donations made to the Clinton Foundation by foreign entities.
“We will see a pattern of financial transactions involving the Clintons that occurred contemporaneous with favorable U.S. policy decisions benefiting those providing the funds,” the Times quoted from the yet-to-be-released book.
As a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Paul has been briefed on the book’s contents, along with Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.
Paul has been dropping hints about the forthcoming bombshell for several weeks. On April 7, he told Fox News host Sean Hannity about Clinton, “There’s going to be something coming out in the next few weeks about companies that she approved deals for.”
Hannity pressed, asking if the approvals were affected by foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation.
Paul replied, “Significant amounts, over $100 million being given to her foundation coming out in the next two weeks.”
Fox News’ Carl Cameron asked Paul about his allegations on April 8 in New Hampshire, saying “Can you tell us what you’re talking about?”
“Then it wouldn’t be a secret, Carl!” Paul shot back. “It’s coming soon.”
Clinton’s campaign dismissed the book’s findings. Spokesman Brian Fallon called them “absurd conspiracy theories,” and “partisan-fueled fiction,” according to the Times.
Schweizer’s book is meticulously documented, written “in the voice of a neutral journalist,” according to The Times, which obtained an advance copy.
The book is scheduled for release by Harper Collins May 5.
With scandals quickly mounting, Clinton, whose campaign appearances have been carefully stage-managed, has plenty to explain to the American people.
