to joining the Clinton State Department, Cheng was finance director in
New York for Mrs. Clinton’s successful campaign for Senate.
Watch filed the complaint after the State Department failed to respond
to a December 21, 2017, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for:
[T]he PST file of Dennis Cheng. Mr. Cheng served as Deputy Chief of
Protocol of the United States from July 20, 2009 to July 2011. A PST file

at the Clinton Foundation, Cheng raised $246 million in just over
three-and-a-half years, July 2011-February 2015. A separate FOIA
lawsuit by Citizens United found that Cheng communicated with Huma
Abedin about a major Clinton Foundation dinner and other issues.
Judicial Watch FOIA litigation uncovered the Clinton email scandal and
ethics scandal, Bill Clinton’s conflicts of interest issues, and the
pay-to-play scandal involving the Clinton State Department and donors to
the Clinton Foundation and Clinton campaigns.
of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton had this to say about the new lawsuit
investigating Crooked Hillary’s pay-to-play while she was head of the
Watch proved the Clinton State Department became a corrupt arm of the
Clinton Foundation. The Justice and State Departments seem to be still
protecting Hillary Clinton. Judicial Watch is stepping into the gap and,
though this and other ongoing FOIA lawsuits, aims to expose and hold the
Clinton cash machine accountable to the rule of law.”
Clinton made $48 million on Bill Clinton’s speeches to foreign
governments/entities while she was Secretary of State.
Watch has done a lot of the heavy lifting exposing
the Clinton Foundation pay-to-play:
Clinton promised she would vet all the conflicts of interest before a
speech or a deal. We suspected it would be a scam and we highlighted that
we can’t trust them back then,” Fitton said.
Clinton started violating that promise and agreement almost immediately in
terms of taking money from foreign governments that she promised she would
not be taking at the Foundation,” Fitton continued.
did this vetting happen? We had to sue for the documents. And the
documents were shocking because they showed…the State Department
approved 215 Bill Clinton speeches, controversial consulting deal
worth $48 million….and they were rubber stamping them all,” Fitton
Clinton was paid $500,000 by Kremlin-linked Renaissance Capital.
This Moscow based firm was also involved in the Uranium One scandal
wherein the Clinton Foundation received $145 million in exchange for
20% of America’s Uranium.
many other Bill Clinton speeches played out like the Uranium One
scandal?? The Clintons literally sold America down the river and they
have yet to be brought to justice.
