Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer’s new book, Clinton Cash, makes condemning allegations about the financial practices of the Clinton Foundation. From Geoff Earle writing at the New York Post:

Bill Clinton collected hefty speaking fees as the “honorary chairman” of a for-profit university, but suddenly ended his relationship last week after Hillary Rodham Clinton attacked for-profit colleges and the money flow to Bill was threatened.

The new book “Clinton Cash” says government grants to the school’s nonprofit affiliate soared when Hillary became secretary of state.

As Bubba played pitchman for Baltimore-based Laureat University, the State Department steered a $1.9 million grant to the nonprofit, the book claims.

“Isn’t it troubling that while Bill Clinton was being paid by a private corporation, the corporation was also benefiting from State Department actions . . . Isn’t it troubling that this seeming conflict of interest was not disclosed?” writes author Peter Schweizer.
