Robby Mook: Hillary Has Little Consideration of Ethics

You have to wonder how voters can favor someone whose own staff considers devoid of ethics, especially when money is involved.  Perhaps the want to make history and elect the first money whore to the presidency.  Robby Mook, Hillary’s campaign manager said in an email that was released late Sunday night, “When soliciting contributions, Clinton had little consideration for ethics”

Mook questioned the appointment of Jose Villarreal as an officer in the campaign, telling Podesta that he “found a potential flag about Jose Villarreal” and that “it looks like he’s snared up in the conflict of interest stuff at State” and “there’s a real argument here that he was at the nexus of foundation/state issues.”

Villarreal was Clinton’s choice to serve as commissioner general of the U.S. Expo, which was supposed to showcase American values at the Shanghai event. But Mook’s 10-page attachment to the Podesta email highlighted how Clinton mixed corporate donations to the U.S. Expo with favorable Department of State treatment.

Such actions are reportedly at the heart of a continuing multi-city FBI political corruption investigation that began in February of this year. That FBI probe is independent of the email investigation Director James Comey appeared Sunday to have closed down a second time.

Mook Wrote:

“When soliciting contributions, Clinton had little consideration for ethics, as the corporations who were featured in Shanghai also contributed to her foundation and received accolades from the State Department.  For example, some of the biggest contributors to Shanghai, including Proctor & Gamble, Boeing, and General Electric, all received favorable treatment from the State Department.”

Bloomberg News Reported:

“Clinton writes that she jetted to foreign capitals as advocate-in-chief for American companies such as General Electric Co. (GE), Boeing Co. (BA), and FedEx Corp. (FDX) to help them close deals that would translate into U.S. jobs.”

The WaPo reports:

“Boeing had been included on a list of firms to be avoided [for Expo donations] due to its frequent reliance on the U.S. government for help negotiating overseas business and concern that a donation could be seen as an attempt to curry favor with American officials.”

From The Daily Caller:

Clinton was called GE’s “Advocate-in-Chief” as secretary of state, according to another Washington Post article attached to the Mook document. She reportedly lobbied “Algerian president Abdelaziz Bouteflika on behalf of GE, which was seeking a $2.5 billion contract to help build six natural gas plants in the Northern African nation,” according to a Bloomberg News story listed by Mook.

GE gave $5 million to the U.S. Expo and has donated up to $1 million to the Clinton Foundation. While FedEX donated $2 million to the U.S. Expo and gave up to $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation.

Boeing and GE have repeatedly refused to release its emails between their top executives and Clinton.

Proctor & Gamble gave $3 million to the U.S. Expo and $4.2 million to the Clinton Foundation, and Clinton repaid P&G in 2011 with the Secretary’s Corporate Excellence Award.

Mook tried to dissuade Clinton from the Villarreal appointment, but Clinton ignored his advice and appointed Villarreal as a senior advisor and campaign treasurer. Villarreal was a bundler for Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign.
