Maybe one day CNN will take us on a tour of the Clinton’s palace home. Until then US main stream media continues to demonise other world leaders for their accumulated wealth…while ignoring the massive, unprecedented wealth built up in the corridors of Washington.
Last time I checked, $1.6 Billion in corporate donations for your “charity” foundation pretty much secured you a spot on the rich oligarch list. Right up their with Gaddafi, Saddam, Poroshenko and Tony Blair.
The kicker in Hillary’s rags to riches story, appears to be that while she was Secretary of State, Hillary found some free time to email (from her personal email account) prospective Clinton Foundation donors (aka other governments)…a big no no when it comes to conducting official US government business.
In a desperate effort to save, what has already become, a Presidential campaign riddled with scandal and controversy, Clinton took to twitter to ask for her email records to be made public.
I want the public to see my email. I asked State to release them. They said they will review them for release as soon as possible.

USA Today reports…
Hillary Rodham Clinton said late Wednesday she requested the State Department to disclose all of her e-mails from her tenure as the nation’s top diplomat, amid controversy over the use of a private account for government business.
Clinton posted on Twitter that she wants the public to see her e-mail, marking the first time she has commented publicly about the controversy.
“I asked State to release them. They said they will review them for release as soon as possible,” she said.
State spokeswoman Marie Harf said the department will review the e-mails provided by Clinton. “We will undertake this review as quickly as possible,” Harf said. “Given the sheer volume of the document set, this review will take some time to complete.”
Clinton’s tweet came after a day of maneuvering over her use of a private e-mail system, which was first reported earlier this week by The New York Times. The former secretary of State has been widely reported as moving toward a 2016 presidential bid, and she is leading all early polls for the Democratic nomination.
The House Select Committee on Benghazi on Wednesday issued subpoenas to the State Department and “other individuals who have information pertinent to the investigation,” spokesman Jamal Ware said. He said the select committee — which is investigating the deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya — issued letters to unnamed Internet companies instructing them to preserve records relevant to the investigation.
The panel said it has records with two different e-mail addresses used by Clinton. which she controlled on her own server at clintonemail.com. Harf said there is only one e-mail account and that it was not prohibited during Clinton’s four-year tenure.
