Surely if Hillary Clinton won the presidency, Democrats would be screeching to their supporters to ‘Impeach 45’ had they found out she sought to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
An email unearthed by Judicial Watch shows Clinton Foundation director of foreign policy Amitabh Desai providing an invite list to Assistant Secretary of State Andrew Shapiro, regarding dignitaries who were invited to attend the 2009 Clinton Global Initiative meeting.
Among those guests making the cut for the “first round of invitations” were Mikhail Gorbachev, former President of the Soviet Union, Dmitriy Medvedev, then President of Russia, and Vladimir Putin, then Prime Minister.
That’s right, just two months into Hillary’s term as Secretary of State, she had invited the scourge of her eventual 2016 presidential campaign, Vladimir Putin, to attend a Clinton Foundation gala.

The massive conflict of interest demonstrated in this e-mail – a relationship between the Clinton’s private foundation and her role as Secretary of State – came exactly one week after Hillary met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Geneva, presenting him with an actual ‘reset’ button.

The gesture symbolized attempts by the Obama administration to ‘reset’ relations with Russia.
“I would like to present you with a little gift that represents what President Obama and Vice President Biden and I have been saying and that is: ‘We want to reset our relationship, and so we will do it together,'” Clinton told Lavrov.
Hmm … That doesn’t sound like somebody who believes Russia to be the instigator of collusion in American politics they’d like you to believe. It sounds like a politician trying to establish a relationship that could help her political career, and the bank account of her foundation.
Beyond the Putin invite, the list of heads of state invited to the gala included some other concerning selections.
Judicial Watch explains, “The list includes dignitaries from Saudi Arabia, which gave $14.5 million to the Clinton Foundation; Kuwait, which gave between $5 and $10 million; Oman, the United Arab Emirates, and Qatar — all of which donated between $1 and $5 million over the years.”
All those mainstream media liberals endlessly seeking collusion with the Russian government or pay-to-play schemes may need to take a closer look at the Clinton Foundation.
