FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE New York, NY (March 5, 2015) Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, will publish Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich by New York Times bestselling author Peter Schweizer on Tuesday, May 5, 2015. Clinton Cash reveals how the Clintons went from “dead broke” on leaving the White House to being millionaires, describing in detail the way in which the Clintons habitually blur the lines between politics, philanthropy, and business. For example—Clinton Cash reveals how Clinton friends scored major deals during the Haitian reconstruction, which was largely overseen by Bill and Hillary Clinton. Clinton family members also scored big in Haiti. In 2012, the Haitian government gave away rare open-pit gold mining grants (called “gold mining exploitation permits” which hadn’t been issued in over 50 years) to two companies. One of them is a tiny North Carolina start-up called VCS mining. Who sits on the VCS board? Hillary’s brother Tony Rodham.


And this is just the tip of the iceberg—Clinton friends and associates can be found to have obtained similar permits in Kazakhstan, and others countries. Clinton Cash will detail these questionable deals and so much more. Editor Adam Bellow comments, “Bestselling author Peter Schweizer coins a new term to describe the unique way in which Bill and Hillary tend to mingle their political, personal and philanthropic interests: the Clinton Blur. Schweizer’s scrupulously sourced and exhaustively researched book raises serious questions about the sources of the Clintons’ sudden wealth, their ethical judgment, and Hillary’s fitness for high public office.” PETER SCHWEIZER PETER SCHWEIZER is the author of Extortion, Throw Them All Out, Architects of Ruin and other books which have revealed political wrongdoing, and led to congressional resignations and new ethics laws. He is the founder and President of the Government Accountability Institute, a team of investigative researchers and journalists committed to investigating and exposing cronyism, misuse of taxpayer monies, and other governmental corruption or malfeasance.
