Mcclatchy: Inside Panama Papers: Multiple Clinton connections

Should read: Multiple Clinton connections...so far


http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/politics-government/election/article72215012.html

Some donors to Clinton foundation used the Panamanian law firm for offshores

Connections come from the more than 40 years Bill and Hillary Clinton have spent in public life


Hillary Clinton recently blasted the hidden financial dealings exposed in the Panama Papers, but she and her husband have multiple connections with people who have used the besieged law firm Mossack Fonseca to establish offshore entities.

Among them are Gabrielle Fialkoff, finance director for Hillary Clinton’s first campaign for the U.S. Senate; Frank Giustra, a Canadian mining magnate who has traveled the globe with Bill Clinton; the Chagoury family, which pledged $1 billion in projects to the Clinton Global Initiative; and Chinese billionaire Ng Lap Seng, who was at the center of a Democratic fund-raising scandal when Bill Clinton was president. Also using the Panamanian law firm was the company founded by the late billionaire investor Marc Rich, an international fugitive when Bill Clinton pardoned him in the final hours of his presidency.

2. This is why we have a system of laws.

 

To protect criminals from the citizens. Everything is perfectly legal. Nothing can be done.

4. Disgusting... although there are those who will say it doesn't matter..

because "Of course in their long career they've had to deal with people who have "unusual" business ties."

6. That's a problem

The Clinton supporters simply do care about corruption.
They will make excuses, ignore, obfuscate. Reminds my of arguing with republicans.
