Hillary Clinton attacked a bank that paid her husband, Bill Clinton, and donated to her family foundation at a speech on the economy today in New York City. The bank Clinton called out was HSBC.
"Stories of misconduct by individuals and institutions in the financial industry are shocking," Clinton said. "HSBC allowing drug cartels to launder money, 5 major banks pleading guilty to felony charges for conspiring currency exchange and interest rates. There can be no justification or tolerance for this kind of criminal behavior."
But the Clintons personally received a check for $200,000 from HSBC in 2011. And the bank donated up to a million dollars to the Clinton Foundation.
"In 2011, Bill Clinton was paid $200,000 for a speech to HSBC Securities (USA) Inc. in Key Largo, FL. In 2007, the Clintons sold between $15,001 and $50,000 in HSBC Holdings PLC. And HSBC has donated between $500,000 and $1,000,000 to the Clinton Foundation," America Rising reports.
Now that Clinton has adopted a no tolerance policy, one wonders whether she will return the money from the bank involved in "criminal behavior."
