I did not realize Chelsea had no idea about how it operates. Completely clueless. She actually was doing the right thing. They really kept her out of the loop for her to be that ignorant.

Companies and other bodies got access to powerful and influential people, people who might be able to speak quietly into certain ears on these companies and other bodies behalf, in a way that would favour those companies or bodies being selected to get a contract or some other beneficial consideration, either from government, or from some other body with which the Clintons have close ties.
The 9 Billion dollars, is, I would imagine, the value of a contract or agreement, that one of their donors sought to gain, with assistance from the Clinton Foundation and the Clintons themselves, either Bill, Hilary, or both. Remember, for some of the period covered by this issue, Hilary Clinton was Secretary of State, so she had access to pretty much the entire government infrastructure and the people running it.
That's basically influence peddling at its highest ebb!
PIC, a unit of state-owned Kuwait Petroleum Corp., canceled a contract forming K-Dow, a 50-50 venture with Dow’s plastics unit, in December 2008. The failure of the venture deprived Dow of a $9 billion payment during the financial crisis, almost derailed its 2009 purchase of Rohm & Haas Co. and prompted the company’s first dividend cut.

You know, this election across the pond has been full to bursting with moments where I wish I had been proven wrong. The Donald being put forward as the candidate for the Republican Party, Bernie Sanders inexplicably being sidelined in favour of a raging she bitch from hell, and a whole bunch more.
But TYT coming out in frustration and indignation, and laying into the Clintons like a coal miner with an inferiority complex, is one of those times I am glad that I was right. I know an awful lot of people thought that TYT is just a left wing mouthpiece, prepared to bash the right and sing the praises of anyone on the other side, but I am so glad that I was right to believe that they had the integrity to stand by their beliefs as people, and come out against this corruption.
And they are right. Any person ignoring the vast wrong being done by the Clinton Foundation and its management, it's ownership and its founders, claiming that the new emails are clean and so nothing is wrong, these people have missed the point either by deliberate fault or accident of ignorance, and it is time to get a grip on that fact, without swinging off to the right.
Hilary voters, it's time you wound your pride in, and cast your hook out to someone other than Hilary, to prevent the other beast in this election from being elected either. Neither Hilary nor Trump ought to have a damned hope in hell of winning the election, but unless you people step up, there is going to be hell to pay, because both of the front running candidates are going to burn your entire way of life given half a chance, and I envy you not one bit. You would be better off with Jill Stein, or the bumbling Gary Johnson, than you ever would with either of the dirty bastards at the tip of the pack, so make your vote count for something other than corruption and self interest.
Vote third party. Write one in if you have to. Anything but more corrupt, dirty money lovers at the top of politics in the most powerful nation on Earth, please! The rest of the world is watching.

This is the very first time that I could stomach watching the Young Turks and then (he) actually did a very good job in his explanation.
In the words of Borat, "Very Nice...".
Good job on this!
An arbitrator ruled Kuwait's state-run chemical company must pay Dow Chemical Co $2.16 billion for wrongly canceling a planned plastics joint venture in 2008, Dow said on Thursday. The International Chamber of Commerce's International Court ruling against Petrochemical Industries Co (PIC) of Kuwait is final and binding and believed to be one of the largest ever arbitration awards, according to Dow's law firm, Shearman and Sterling LLP. Kuwait pulled out of the $17.4 billion "K-Dow" petrochemical joint venture as the g
