Another Hillary Clinton 'Pay to Play' event is about to break tomorrow. This story has been building since details first began to emerge last week in an article from NEWSWEEK.

This time, it concerns Victor Pinchuk, close personal Clinton friend and the largest individual donor to The Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation.

Pinchuk's company Interpipe was selling pipelines to Iran in conflict with U.S. sanctions.
This was done during Hillary Clinton's tenure as Secretary of State, with Hillary Clinton, herself, being in charge of the list of which companies would be forbidden to trade, working counter to U.S. foreign policy...and which companies would be permitted to trade with Iran during sanctions.

Pinchuk's company, Interpipe, was given the OK to sell pipeline materials to Iran.



A major Clinton Foundation donor sold pipelines to Iran during Hillary Clinton’s tenure a Secretary of State, Newsweek reported last week.

Victor Pinchuk, a Ukrainian businessman, reportedly shipped the pipelines to Iran through his company Interpipe between 2011 and 2012.
Newsweek has seen declarations and documents from Ukraine that show a series of shipments from Interpipe to Iran in 2011 and 2012, including railway parts and products commonly used in the oil and gas sectors.

Among a number of high-value invoices for products related to rail or oil and gas, one shipment for $1.8m (1.7m) in May 2012 was for “seamless hot-worked steel pipes for pipelines” and destined for a city near the Caspian Sea.

Both the rail and oil and gas sectors are sanctioned by the US, which specifically prohibits any single invoice to the Iranian petrochemical industry worth more than $1m.

Enemies of Hillary Clinton waiting to discredit her bid for the White House are likely to seize on news that one of the biggest benefactors to the Clinton Foundation has been trading with Iran and may be in breach of US sanctions imposed on the country.

Ukrainian oligarch Victor Pinchuk, 54, has courted the Clintons for at least nine years – in the United States, the Alps and Ukraine.

Earlier this year, he was confirmed as the largest individual contributor to the Clinton Foundation, whose aims include the creation of “economic opportunity and growth”. He also has links to the Tony Blair Foundation and represented its biggest single donor in 2013.

However, US sanctions laws are complex and, in certain areas, ill-defined. Interpipe may qualify for penalties due to the mere presence on American soil of North American Interpipe Inc, its United States subsidiary.

The US authorities can also penalise non-American companies with no base in the US at all which it judges to be working counter to its foreign policy, as happened to Zhuhai Zhenrong, a Chinese oil company, in 2012.

Being denied access to US markets and the US banking system could prove catastrophic to Interpipe, given that accountancy giant Ernst & Young has raised questions over its viability.

The person in charge of this list of non-US companies is the Secretary of State, who between 2009 to 2013 – the period during which Pinchuk’s company was trading with Iran – was Hillary Clinton.


In November 2014, the now-retired Republican congressman, Steve Stockman, wrote to the US Department of the Treasury, questioning Interpipe’s dealings with Iran.

Newsweek has seen a copy of that letter, in which Stockman refers to a “body of evidence” detailing “exports from Interpipe to Iranian entities” that “may have contravened US sanctions to Iran”.

Just imagine what will happen after they rig the elections and she gets to be POTUS. Graft, kickbacks and corruption, those will be mild descriptions of what is actually to come.

NEWSWEEK is certainly not part of the "vast Right-Wing conspiracy".
Their article's opening paragraph is almost apologetic:

I have zero plans of voting for a Clinton, but I don't think this will damage her chances with voters.

It is too far removed with deniability. The Clinton foundation is a charity and has been transparent about who has donated to it and the sums. Even if they received donations from Haliburton I don't think it will hurt them.

If it can be proven the Clintons knew about the trading with Iran that would be a different story, but the article doesn't say that.
