PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwired - July 22, 2016) - Clinton Cash, the documentary based on the Peter Schweizer book that the New York Times hailed as, "… the most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle," will air on Breitbart.com at 8PM ET on Saturday and at 2PM and 8PM ET on Sunday (July 23-24). The film is scheduled to set the tone for the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, PA (July 25-28).
Breitbart.com is offering complimentary online access to the film with an email sign-up.
The film, which MSNBC says is "devastating" and "powerfully connects the dots," reveals how Bill and Hillary Clinton went from being "dead broke" after leaving the White House, to amassing a net worth of over $150 million, with $2 billion in donations to their foundation. This wealth was accumulated during Mrs. Clinton's tenure as Sec. of State, through lucrative speaking fees and contracts paid for by foreign companies and Clinton Foundation donors.
The film's screening on Breitbart, which is the #41 media website in the world, could spell trouble for Democrats heading into their party's convention. The Guardian says it's "…a powerful message, one that is clearly designed to stir up trouble at the convention at just the moment when Clinton should be reveling in her victory in the Democratic race." Time Magazine calls it "a scathing broadside aimed at persuading liberals [and] is likely to leave on-the-fence Clinton supporters who see it feeling more unsure about casting a vote for her." The Fiscal Times warns that the documentary is a "weapon that could knock Clinton out." And CNN's Michael Smerconish says Clinton Cash is shaping up to become the political "playbook for the fall campaign." The Daily Mail heralds the film as a "blistering indictment" of how the Clintons got rich from corruption.
The book, Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich (published May 2015 by HarperCollins), dominated headlines for months as the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal and others confirmed the book's investigative assertions regarding foreign donors and companies funneling tens of millions of dollars to Hillary and Bill Clinton. As Harvard Law School Professor Lawrence Lessig wrote in the Washington Post, "On any fair reading, the pattern of behavior that Schweizer has charged is corruption."
Schweizer is editor-at-large of Breitbart News. The author of four New York Times bestsellers, including Clinton Cash, and Throw Them All Out, Schweizer's investigative reporting has been covered by virtually every major U.S. media outlet, including: 60 Minutes, The New York Times, NPR, Wall Street Journal, ABC News, CNN, Forbes, Newsweek, Fox News, Politico, MSNBC, and a myriad of others.
Clinton Cash has been lauded by top progressives for its exposure of crony capitalism and self-enrichment. Jeffrey D. Sachs, Columbia University Earth Institute Director, called it "compelling reading on how Bill and Hillary have mixed personal wealth, power, and influence peddling." Daily Beast columnist Eleanor Clift calls Schweizer "an equal-opportunity investigator, snaring Republicans as well as Democrats." And Demos Senior Fellow Nomi Prins says Clinton Cash "provides a damning portrait of elite and circumspect power and influence."
The film was written and produced by Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon and Breitbart News Network Director of Production Dan Fleuette, and directed by M. A. Taylor.(i)
