As usual, before the following story about another “pay to play” Clinton story, Detective Drebin has a message for the mainstream media, not that it’s necessary:

The mountain of Bill & Hillary “coincidences” is now so high you’d need a team of Sherpas to safely make the trek to the top to see what’s up there, but unfortunately you can only get guides in that particular region by first making a handsome donation to the Clinton Foundation.

Here’s the latest “coincidence” that occurred while Hillary was secretary of state:

Donations to the Clinton Foundation by Swiss bank UBS increased tenfold after Hillary Clinton intervened to settle a dispute with the IRS early in her tenure as secretary of state, according to a published report.

According to the Wall Street Journal, total donations by UBS to the foundation grew from less than $60,000 at the end of 2008 to approximately $600,000 by the end of 2014. The Journal reports that the bank also lent $32 million through entrepreneurship and inner-city loan programs it launched in association with the foundation, while paying former President Bill Clinton $1.5 million to participate in a series of corporate question-and-answer sessions with UBS Chief Executive Bob McCann.

Though there is no evidence of wrongdoing, ties between the Clinton Foundation, major corporations and foreign governments have come under increasing scrutiny as Hillary Clinton begins her presidential campaign. The UBS case is unusual in that it shows a top U.S. diplomat intervening on behalf of a major overseas bank in a situation where federal prosecutors and the Justice Department had been the lead entity.

At what point does a public official taking action that favors a particular entity and then personally profiting from the decision, directly and indirectly, become “evidence of wrongdoing”? Also, at what point is deleting information on an email server that might have contained that “evidence of wrongdoing” considered “evidence of wrongdoing”? That said, there isn’t a more fitting corporate name for the Clintons to be involved with than “UBS.”

As secretary of state, intervening in a corporation’s dispute with the IRS can lead to good things… coincidentally, of course:

That also shows just how seriously Wall Street takes Hillary’s pledges to bring them down (nudge, nudge).

The Wall Street Journal calls things like this “Clinton’s complicated ties.” If the secretary of state in question were, say, Condi Rice, I don’t think “complicated” would be the word the media used.
