Breaking: Clintons Got Millions from Swiss Bank Sec Clinton Shielded from IRS

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by itsrobert (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: Daily Kos

Here's the long and short of it. Shortly after she became Secretary of State, Clinton went to Switzerland at the request of her Swiss counterpart. The IRS had sued UBS demanding the identities of some 50,000 account holders. A few months later, Secretary Clinton announced a deal whereby UBS provided information on only 4450 accounts. It was a bit odd that the Secretary of State (any secretary of state) would have been involved in this kind of matter at all.

This is all a bit odd and another instance of a Clinton helping out a giant financial institution. But what is really troubling is what came after. Because it seems that after this intervention, UBS became rather magnanimous toward the Clintons. How so?

1) UBS contributions to the Clinton foundation jumped from 60K prior to 2008 to 600K by 2014. That's a 1000% increase.

2) UBS partnered with the Clinton Foundation to lend $32 million to inner-city entrepreneur programs.

3) Bill Clinton was invited to have some Q & A sessions with UBS big wigs. He was paid $1.5 MILLION for these appearances. It made UBS the single biggest source of corporate speech income since he left office.

6. From the article...

And in all fairness, neither the Atlantic nor the Wall Street Journal claims there is a direct link between helping UBS as Secretary of State on the one hand and the sudden increased generosity of UBS toward the Clintons on the other. And no one is suggesting that anything illegal took place or that there was any kind of quid pro quo deal. I'm not suggesting that, either.
In fact, it is most likely just one more example of the very kind of perfectly legal soft corruption that is strangling our democracy. Right after the big banks bankrupted the global economy, Secretary Clinton was going out of her way to help out the big banks. It's no wonder the IRS and the AG were unable to prosecute the masterminds of this catastrophe given all their friends in high places.

were the more than 90% of 1%er accountholders who no doubt got to keep evading paying millions or even billions of dollars of taxes on hidden money. What tied the less than 10% of accountholders whose information was revealed together? Why were they thrown to the wolves, when so many others were protected?

I'd have to weed through all the Financial Data to answer..but, if you look at our Bank Bailouts that let the Heads of the Worst Banksters "Go Free" with "Fine after Fine" avoiding "Criminal Indictment" and they STILL PROFIT with BONUSES....I'd say that the lesser ones like "Bill Clinton" who approved the End of Glass-Stegall and his other Deregulation which helped cause the Meltdown were Equally Rewarded for their cooperation.

And that's a huge part of why I can't support Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton assuming the White House is Theirs...

Too much Pain and Suffering to the American People by their constant "Clulessness" ....or Did they know Full Well what they were doing?

It seems for the Clintons it is "POWER over MONEY" and yet those they enable Grow More Wealthy and they stand buy and perpetuate that SYSTEM, while they Pretend Otherwise!

$32 million for inner city entrepreneurs, and $1.5 million in Bill's pockets for speaking fees. Everyone's a winner! They've got the game down cold.

But, there's this little issue of quid pro quo going forward, isn't there? What kind of treatment can UBS expect from an HRC Administration? They can be forgiven for thinking, "preferential," can't they? It would be nice if the price of a qualified, been-around-the-block candidate like Hillary wasn't having to excuse a post-presidential lifetime of tacky running-up-the-score behavior, but there it is.

74. Can you identify the "inner-city loan program"?

Saying the Foundation did "something"
should mean there is "something" to show
for the $32 Million "donation".

Do you know how much if any went
to the "Entrepreneurs", and what
were the terms of the loans?

Did the money go to "friends" of Clinton's?

What exactly is the "program"
Links?

Not just empty words referring to something that happened 50 years ago. All the sudden money to "inner city" businesses is a bad thing? Right? I'm confused I thought this was the leg up that a certain other candidate touts as the end all be all to all inner city blues"?

176. The Bernie supporters don't get it because they believe

 

that large numbers are inherently sinful and fraudulent.

a) ALL public charities are required to have audited financial statements
b) ALL public charities are required to spend a bulk of their contributions to charity less overhead and admin costs
c) ALL public charities have to file income tax returns

It is not like Bill Clinton can say "hey, put $20 million in my pocket and call it some charitable work" like Bernie supporters would like to believe.

Lastly, both Clintons are lawyers who have been constantly investigated over one thing or another ... it is not likely at all that they would keep skeletons with their bones sticking out of closet in such a way that even a Bernie supporter can find.

100. How much did she give to POC?

The only reference I can find on this is

The bank also joined the Clinton Foundation to launch entrepreneurship and inner-city loan programs, through which it lent $32 million.


from the Wall Street Journal.

It does not say who the entrepreneurs are, or if any of this goes to the poor (who are mostly POC). And the money did not come from her. It came from the Swiss Bank. 32 million from the swiss bank is zilch to them, especially if they are getting QPQ from the Clintons. Yes Hillary has a foundation (from which I'm sure she earns good money as a founder/director), and she is a well-known good fund raiser. Hurrah! Now lets she her actually get out there and see that the money is used to help the actual POC. Lets see her pass legislation that actually helps the poor and POC.

And you know what? If wealth was more fairly distributed in this country, and we had laws preventing racial discrimination, that actually worked, we wouldn't need wealthy people and wealthy people funded charities to take care of the less fortunate. the system would be fairer so everyone had a fair chance to not "need" charity.

156. How about you check out their foundation site

I'm sure not finding anything there about inner city loans or help. Everything there is so generic. I don't see anything showing how much $ is spent and results. It looks like most of the work she does is aimed at gender issues or 3rd world nations (not that that's a bad thing). I'm just not seeing her "help" for POC in this country.

I even took the time to check out her web page for her foundation and still couldn't find what I was looking for.

103. propping up multi million dollar businesses

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/ubs-and-vedc-announce-first-small-business-loan-in-new-york-metro-area-2014-04-28

Barganza, Inc. is owned and operated by Ronald and Helga Gordon, a husband and wife team who have provided women's handbags to major national retailers since 1983. Many of these larger retailers rely on Barganza’s expertise in the India and China manufacturing system and international distribution channels. Barganza’s sales and business grew steadily until it was deeply affected by the 2008 financial crisis. As the company began to stabilize in 2012, they were further impacted by Hurricane Sandy and the cancellation of the 2012 NYC Fashion Market Week, an event critical to Barganza’s 2013 winter and spring orders. The Gordons approached five different financial institutions before they were referred to VEDC. The $500,000 loan will allow Barganza to continue operations and fulfil new purchase orders.

117. Here is just a short list of some of Bernie's recent Senate votes

I'm not including his strictly economic votes, of which there are plenty, but I'm including his yea votes that affect women, minorities, poor, elderly, immigrants, unemployed, and students and military. And many of the groups he helps are largely POC.

Some are yea votes and some show he was a cosponsor of this bill.

July 16, 2014 S 2578 Protect Women's Health From Corporate Interference Act of 2014. (co-sponsor).

July 9, 2014 PN 1736 Nomination of Julian Castro to be Secretary of Housing and Urban Development

June 11, 2014 S 2432 Bank on Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act

March 31, 2014 HR 4302 Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014

March 13, 2014 HR 3370 Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014

March 6, 2014 S 1752 Military Justice Improvement Act of 2013

Dec. 17, 2013 S 1845 Emergency Unemployment Compensation Extension Act (co-sponsor)

Nov. 7, 2013 S 815 Employment Non-Discrimination Act of 2013

June 27, 2013 S 744 Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Ac


I could have added the nay votes too, but didn't want to overwhelm you. These are all votes to help all people, often POC, just from page one of twenty seven. Most within the last two years and if you want to see all his votes, going back to forever, here is the link.

https://votesmart.org/candidate/key-votes/27110/bernie-sanders#.VbvgWPNVikr

Now tell me again that Bernie's attempt to help or stand for POC is all 50 years ago.

Good grief! Do you have blinders on?

19. A bird sat on a branch and the whole tree fell down

 

So the bird must have done it

There could be legitimate reasons why all 50,000 accounts were not required such as

a) They had very small amounts in them (<$10,000)
b) The owners could not be confirmed as US citizens
c) The 50,000 was just a number thrown out and the actual accounts were fewer
d) The other accounts were already disclosed by taxpayers to the IRS
e) The accounts belonged to diseased persons, corporations or charities and not individuals

In any event, the IRS and the lawyers for Justice signed off on the deal.

Lastly, any money received went into a FOUNDATION for CHARITY WORK.

Would you have kvetched if Mother Teresa had met some Swiss bankers and received millions for her charity?

The attempts by Bernie supporters to smear HRC for the work of a CHARITABLE FOUNDATION are nefarious, specious and downright despicable.

144. the article which appeared in the Wall Street Journal is reporting shadows. You can ask questions

but your contention that you can draw conclusions from shadows is nonsense.

The article mentions that UBS contributions to the Clinton Foundation through 2008 were $60,000 but grew to a cumulative total of around $600,000 by endof 2014.

It might be interesting to note that in 2008 UBS "over 21 billion Swiss francs in 2008, the biggest annual loss in Swiss corporate history" .. In 2013 and 2014 they had a net earnings of $3.5 Billion in both years. (I couldn't find data for 2009, 2010, 2011 or 2012)


How the U.S. cracked open secret vaults at UBS

But they (UBS) had a few things going for them. The U.S. State Department was grateful for the nation's diplomatic support -- such as representing U.S. interests in places like Cuba and Iran and helping to broker a deal that normalized relations between Turkey and Armenia. The pact was signed in Switzerland last October.

This, insiders said, helped create what they called a "certain atmosphere" that made it possible for Swiss Foreign Minister Micheline Calmy Rey to have numerous phone calls with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and to meet her face to face three times in the run-up to the August deal.

21. From the article...

 

“Any suggestions that Hillary Clinton was driven by anything but what’s in America’s best interest would be false. Period,” a campaign spokesman told The Guardian.
And in all fairness, neither the Atlantic nor the Wall Street Journal claims there is a direct link between helping UBS as Secretary of State on the one hand and the sudden increased generosity of UBS toward the Clintons on the other. And no one is suggesting that anything illegal took place or that there was any kind of quid pro quo deal. I'm not suggesting that, either.

In fact, it is most likely just one more example of the very kind of perfectly legal soft corruption that is strangling our democracy. Right after the big banks bankrupted the global economy, Secretary Clinton was going out of her way to help out the big banks. It's no wonder the IRS and the AG were unable to prosecute the masterminds of this catastrophe given all their friends in high places.

So what is the real meaning of all of this? It is just one more crack in the crumbling wall of credibility the Clintons have when it comes to fighting for progressive economic issues. The Atlantic piece sums it up nicely:

Democrats are hurtling toward a farce. The coalition that insists on the corrupting effect of Citizens United and the unlimited campaign contributions it permits is poised to nominate a couple that has seen riches flow from big banks to their personal accounts.

UBS was the beginning the unraveling of the Swiss secrecy. It cannot be viewed in a vacuum.

As a result of UBS plea and payment of $780 million, over 100 Swiss banks sign up for the DOJ amnesty deal that would mean no prosecution, no conviction or closure, no disgrace, just some penalties and life goes on.

For example, Credit Suisse plead guilty and paid a $2.6 billion.

Without UBS, not sure the rest of them would have fallen. That might have been the deal Clinton made - be first, and we will give you a break. http://www.forbes.com/sites/irswatch/2014/02/03/swiss-bank-secrecy-succumbs-to-u-s-tax-enforcers/

47. Story seems to skip over a critical piece here:

 


"The IRS had sued UBS demanding the identities of some 50,000 account holders. A few months later, Secretary Clinton announced a deal whereby UBS provided information on only 4450 accounts."

And how many account ID's would the IRS have gotten without some sort of government-to-government deal with Switzerland in order to get what they did?

"It was a bit odd that the Secretary of State (any secretary of state) would have been involved in this kind of matter at all."

I guess a pool table is odd if you've never seen one, which was the premise for the flim-flam artist in Music Man.

The IRS could sue all it wanted to, it wasn't going to get that information in violation of Swiss laws from a Swiss bank, without the Swiss government getting involved.

But you find it a "bit odd" that the Department of State would get involved in a matter requiring the cooperation of a foreign government with a US government agency?

Really?

Explain why that is a "bit odd" to you.

61. If you're going to throw out a smear piece

At least make sure you have a solid series of links. You just jump from on tenacious association to another, the only common thread being the word "Clinton" As in Hillary, Bill and their foundation.
Your first link is so specious as to be stupid: " Shortly after she became Secretary of State, Clinton went to Switzerland at the request of her Swiss counterpart." Followed by "The IRS had sued UBS demanding the identities of some 50,000 account holders. A few months later, Secretary Clinton announced a deal whereby UBS provided information on only 4450 accounts." You expect people to be stupid enough to buy that?

The first sentence is nothing more than a request from Switzerland NOT the US, to have a chat. We do not know what, but you go for the conspiracy jugular by following it with the next statement that conflates the IRS with the State dept, and you try to make us believe that Hillary had something to do with it, personally. Are you daft? Read it without your tin foil hat on, in the real world -she was mediating an agreement between the Swiss banks and the IRS. That, my poo throwing friend is all that it boiled down to. IOW, she had no skin in the game, she was doing her job of being a diplomat. A fact that goes right over your head.

Then you try to smear the world renown Clinton Foundation. Do yourself a favor and look up what the foundation does, then come back and apologize, if you have any balls at all. You have no tit for tat proof what so ever, and what the hell is wrong with giving money to a foundation that, crap, I should charge you for an education, that Hillary has no direct control over, and so what, anyway? The money goes to help women around the world, so apparently, you hate women, too. Go here and read:
https://www.clintonfoundation.org/



How about admitting you are part of that bunch that will continuously publish these half truths, innuendo laden, etc., craptastic pieces in hopes of wearing her down?

45,000 super rich 1% got to keep their illegal and ill-gotten gains.

This proves Hillary cares more about the favor of the super wealthy than enforcing tax law. Why would she be any different as President?

And yes the donations and monies earned after helping UBS cover for their tax evading criminal elite was a big thank you Sec Clinton.

Corruption of the wealthiest of the 1% is sicking. Narcissistic greedy selfish rich criminals.

153. Problem is you have to subscribe to the WSJ to see that. The Atlantic makes a reference to the no

no evidence part, and the DailyKOS has been anti-Hillary for some time, so it is no surprise it isn't in there.

I can hardly wait for someone at DU to post Peter Schweizer accusations as LBN

Funny when Schweizer was pressed by George Stephanopoulos, on his book, "Clinton Cash", he admitted that he has no hard evidence to support his allegations.

Gee, isn't that special. What is heck is wrong with the press in this country?

If I go to Amazon or Audible the book gets rave reviews, despite "no evidence for the claims in it"

The NY Times which recently put up a story saying that "criminal charges" were going to be pursued regarding Hillary's emails. IT WAS A LIE, but like the NY Times knowingly giving Schweizer a forum to spout his lies in his book, the NY Times has demonstrate that it is not a publication that can be trusted to fairly sort out the facts.

Maybe the NY Times can tell us again why they told us that Iraq had WMDs, but conveniently left out the opposing view from government officials in the know? Judith Miller when interviewed by Jon Stewart said it was because the paper did have "enough space" to put it in.

I guess Freedom of the press also means freedom to lie

139. I read the original WSJ story, which was a total hit job on the Clintons.

They conveniently buried the fact that George W. Bush was also involved in the UBS-sponsored charity thing (meaning he too got speaking fees) in the last paragraph.

The matter regarding Switzerland is being blown out of proportion. Hillary was the sitting Secretary of State, and Switzerland was upset because the IRS was asking them to do something that violates Swiss law. Now, as liberals, we are supposed to defend the IRS when it try to combat P.O.S. 1% tax evaders, that is certain. BUT, I personally object to American Exceptionalism, and I think the IRS was being rather arrogant in just expecting the UBS in Switzerland to break their own laws just because the IRS is an American agency. I don't blame the Swiss for being upset, and Clinton was just doing her job resolving the situation.

The UBS charitable donations and even Bill's speaking fees all went to a good cause, and there is no direct causal relationship with Hillary's diplomatic efforts with Switzerland. UBS had been donating to the Clinton Foundation prior to that affair.

Bottom line: This is a conservative hit piece and unfortunately, many on the left are buying the narrative.

143. Bernie and Hillary supporter here. But this headline is more than a little misleading.

Headline identifies the Clinton Foundation and the Clintons as the same thing, when they are not. Same thing that Fox and much of attention-hungry MSM does. It should be clear without further comment, however with respect to the three points in the OP:

1) So this says that DURING the recession UBS was more charitable to a world-wide non-profit than after? And since Hillary left the state department in early 2013, how are the end-of-2014 numbers for charitable giving relevant?

2) Other than the words 'UBS' and 'Clinton' appearing in the same sentence, how is this relevant to the OP supposition that UBS paid off the Clintons for favors?

3) The article says that Bill Clinton has been speaking to the biggest financial institutions since 2004, all for a fee of course just like many many world figures.

I'm not saying that they shouldn't do a better job of creating a perception of separation between income and government activities...they should. I am saying that the headline goes beyond that to make an unfounded accusation. For what reason, I don't know. It's certianly not for reasons of accuracy in reporting.

Bernie doesn't benefit from these kinds of mud-slinging headlines. But we all lose...lowering the quality of public discourse diminishes us all, even the republicans who may actually gain a tic or two in polling numbers.
