The recently released Panama papers have revealed that the Clinton family has multiple ties to individuals who hid their money in offshore funds. Some connections are new while others are decades old, but they all provide a clear view into the way that the Clintons operate and what sort of people they associate with.

Make no mistake – these people implicated have strong and telling relationships with the Clinton family. One person, Frank Giustra, is a member of the Clinton Foundation board, while others have given massive funds to the foundation, helped to run Clinton campaigns and more.

While Hillary Clinton spends her entire campaign defending the money she has taken from Wall Street, big banks, wealthy donors, the oil and gas industry, and more, the growing public perception is that this sort of fundraising is no longer acceptable.

McClatchy DC, the outlet that broke this story lists the Clinton connections named in the papers:

“Among them are Gabrielle Fialkoff, finance director for Hillary Clinton’s first campaign for the U.S. Senate; Frank Giustra, a Canadian mining magnate who has traveled the globe with Bill Clinton; the Chagoury family, which pledged $1 billion in projects to the Clinton Global Initiative; and Chinese billionaire Ng Lap Seng, who was at the center of a Democratic fund-raising scandal when Bill Clinton was president. Also using the Panamanian law firm was the company founded by the late billionaire investor Marc Rich, an international fugitive when Bill Clinton pardoned him in the final hours of his presidency.”

Due to the nature of the Clinton family and their miles-long web of relationships and favor systems, we may see nothing come of these telling revelations. For those of us whose eyes are open enough to see, it is just another smoking gun for the corruption and dark establishment ties of the Clinton empire.
