Hillary Campaign Fundraisers Locked Down Billions in Foreign Arms Contracts While She Was Secretary of State

Big time fundraisers for Hillary Clinton's 2008 and 2016 presidential campaigns were able to lock down billions of dollars in arms deal contracts on behalf of Raytheon during her time as Secretary of State, despite having little experience with the business. One of the bundlers turned lobbyists happens to be Heather Podesta, the sister-in-law of former State Department advisor and current Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta. 

Additionally, after locking down purchases of major weapons systems from Raytheon, which were negotiated by the lobbyists close to Clinton and Podesta, the government of Qatar donated $1 million to the Clinton Foundation in honor of former President Bill Clinton's birthday and requested a sit down with him.

Fox News James Rosen reports:

Bill and Hillary Clinton, in addition to the Clinton campaign, maintain play-to-play or quid-pro-quo schemes were never used at the State Department and deny donations to the Clinton Foundation were purchases for access or influence. During the last and final presidential debate, Hillary Clinton said everything she did at the State Department was in the best interest of the United States.
