Bill Clinton Collected $50,000 A Month From MF Global?!

Now this is interesting….

A former MF Global employee accused former president William J. Clinton of collecting $50,000 per month through his Teneo advisory firm in the months before the brokerage careened towards its Halloween filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Teneo was hired by MF Global’s former CEO Jon S. Corzine to improve his image and to enhance his connections with Clinton’s political family, said the employee, who asked that his name be withheld because he feared retribution.

Notice that the so-called “mainstream media” has not said one word about this connection or the amount of money involved here – some $600,000 annually.  That’s a hell of a lot of money, and it’s entirely reasonable to ask exactly what was provided in exchange for it.

Does anyone remember Hillary’s “exceptional” skill in trading cattle futures — with zero prior experience in the market?  The allegations surrounding that and how her “winnings” became allocated to her were quite interesting for the time, but that story got spiked too.

Gee, I wonder why.
