When we read the title, all we could say was, “Of course, she did!” Sometimes it’s good to have friends in high places, so, in 2012, when Hedge fund manager Marc Mezvinsky invested large on a Greek economic recovery, he thought it was the safest thing to do. Unfortunately for Mezvinsky and his fellow investors, being Hillary Clinton’s son-in-law didn’t help them at all.
Recently released emails from 2012 show that Hillary and Sidney Blumenthal, a consultant for the Clinton Foundation, shared classified information concerning German leaders’ views on the prospects of a Greek bailout from the EU. Clinton also shared classified State Department information about Greek bonds with her husband, Bill, during the same period that her son-in-law was creating his hedge fund on Greece. Nobody has a problem with the Secretary of State keeping abreast of the financial situation in Europe, but we do have a problem when she shares classified information with others. This is especially criminal when it was for her own gain.
Young Conservatives reports:
Hedge fund manager Marc Mezvinsky had friends in high places when he bet big on a Greek economic recovery, but even the keen interest of his mother-in-law, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, wasn’t enough to spare him and his investors from financial tragedy.
In 2012, Mezvinski, the husband of Chelsea Clinton, created a $325 million basket of offshore funds under the Eaglevale Partners banner through a special arrangement with investment bank Goldman Sachs. The funds have lost tens of millions of dollars predicting that bailouts of the Greek banking system would pump up the value of the country’s distressed bonds. One fund, exclusively dedicated to Greek debt, suffered near-total losses.
