Getting lucrative government contracts is easy – if you know the right people. And in the case of former ambassador Joe Wilson, husband of former CIA officer Valerie Plame, it was Hillary Clinton who greased the skids so that government contracts could go to business associates and friends.
Is this really in the job description of the secretary of state?
Wilson’s requests for help — on behalf of an American engineering contractor he consulted for called Symbion Power — is a recurring theme in each monthly Clinton email dump.
The latest two batches of records are no different.
They show that Wilson, who is perhaps most famous as the husband of ex-CIA operative Valerie Plame, emailed Clinton on Dec. 22, 2009 seeking help for Symbion, which was pursuing a U.S. Agency of International Development (USAID) contract for work in Afghanistan.
Wilson said he was frustrated that USAID was “mothballing projects and refusing to consider others because of the perceived dangers” in Afghanistan. “If AID won’t do the job, money should be transferred to the military,” he urged.
And in an Aug. 13, 2010 email released on Dec. 31, Wilson asked for help in gaining access to the Green Zone in Baghdad, Iraq in order to discuss a contract with U.S. military contractors that was being held up.
“The delays in settling these claims are unwarranted and have had a negative impact on Symbion and obliged us to be out of pocket a considerable sum of money through no fault of our own,” Wilson wrote.

Hmmm was she paying off some kind of blackmail or rewarding a pay to play scheme
Corrupt, progressive government at its best - funded by unbacked, printed, dollars and massive debt from our soviet-style financial central-planning agency, the Federal Reserve.
Don’t think you can reform government and politics without reforming our financial system.

They’ve even subverted the term, “Reform”.
Reform now means other things. For example, “immigration reform” which actually mean just let tens of millions in and legalize those here illegally. This is what they call “Reform”.
Those in D.C. have created nothing but colossal fraud with clear motives of bad intent for America.

Daily disclosures of espionage, illegal fund raising, tax evasion, money laundering, influence peddling, obstruction of justice, lying to Congress under oath, on and on. Regular people are wondering exactly what it takes before she’s perp walked.

Tip of the iceberg.
If we only knew how many cronies and hangers-on email the powerful in Washington every day looking for favors...
who is perhaps most famous as the husband of ex-CIA operative Valerie Plame,
Val was NEVER an operative.

I don’t know if the Hildebeast will do jail time, but her likability is going to be subzero. Blacks won’t come out like that did for Obama. I think she’s a goner. I expect she’ll retire for “medical” reasons.

I want to know who’s voting for Hillary and HOW MANY OF HER SUPPORTERS HAVE SPENT TIME IN A JAIL OR PRISON.
The Washington Post tells us who supports Trump... why don’t the little jerk offs tell us who supports Hillary?
