Why Is Former Ambassador Going To Amsterdam For a Hillary Clinton Fundraiser?…

With Secretary Clinton essentially disappearing from the campaign trail (focusing almost exclusively on fundraising), many people have noted an unusual scheduled event for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton appearing on her calendar, a fundraiser in AmsterdamNorth Holland, by former U.S. Ambassador Timothy Broas .

If, as the media continue to espouse, Hillary Clinton has an “insurmountable lead” in the presidential race, why so much emphasis on raising money for a contest her team claims is easily already won?  What gives?… and why Amsterdam for a fundraiser?

Let’s take a look, beginning with the guy trying to raise the money for the campaign; the “speaker”, Timothy Broas. 

Tim Broas was a former Ambassador to the Netherlands for less than two years.  After initially seeing his diplomatic nomination derailed in 2012 –busted for a DUI and resisting arrest charge in June– Broas gained the support of the White House again in 2013 and took the diplomatic post in March 2014.  He quit the assignment February 2016.

A look at his history as presented by allgov.com shows a Broas was well enmeshed in Democrat political circles for many years:

[…] A partner in the Washington, DC, office of the Chicago-based law firm of Winston & Strawn, Broas has raised more than $500,000 for Obama’s re-election efforts as a bundler…in other words, he raised the money from friends, family, or business associates. For Obama’s 2008 campaign, Broas bundled between $200,000 and $500,000.

[…]  According to records released by the Obama administration, Broas has visited the White House 39 times since 2009, including eight visits with the president and five West Wing meetings with Pete Rouse, a top adviser who served as Obama’s chief of staff and is now the president’s counselor.

[…]  He started his private practice career as an associate at two New York City law firms: Conboy, Hewitt, O’Brien & Boardman from 1980 to 1983 and Whitman & Ransom from 1983 to 1985. Relocating to Washington, DC, Broas was a partner at Anderson, Hibey & Blair from 1986 to 1995, when he joined the DC office of the Chicago-based law firm of Winston & Strawn, where he has specialized in white-collar criminal defense ever since.

Clients Broas has represented include UBS Securities, LLC; Legg Mason; Otsuka America Pharmaceuticals, Inc.; Alstom Holdings; Ingersoll-Rand, Ltd.; and Papa John’s International, Inc. He also represented the left-leaning group Citizen Action until it was shut down because of its involvement in funding a Teamsters election campaign, and Neil Volz, chief of staff to Rep. Bob Ney (R-Ohio), during the unfolding of the Jack Abramoff scandal in 2005-2006.

In 2005, Broas was appointed to the Board of Visitors of Mount Vernon by Virginia Gov. Mark Warner and was reappointed in 2009 by Governor Tim Kaine; both are Democrats. He was appointed by Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley (also a Democrat) to the Board of Trustees of St. Mary’s College of Maryland in 2011. In 2010, President Obama appointed Broas to the Board of Trustees of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, a nonpartisan think tank created by Congress in 1968.

Timothy Broas is married to fellow attorney Julie Broas, who practiced labor law for two decades at the Washington, DC, office of the Jones, Day law firm and now works at the Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless as the Jones Day Senior Fellow.  (link and more)

Tim Broas, the Ambassador/Clinton fundraiser, also serves on the board of trustees for an organization called “Partners in Health” (PiH). (Link)

PiH is part of the larger Clinton network, the Clinton Global Initiative.

clinton amsterdam 2 The co-founder of Partners in Health (PiH) is Paul Farmer who also has close ties with the Clinton Foundation. (link)

Partners in Health, Farmer and Broas, (PiH) operate clinics and hospitals across Haiti (link)

… and has close ties with another notable member of PiH, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim.

It would appear that Mr. Timothy Broas is leveraging his prior 20 month experience in the Netherlands (as an official U.S. diplomat) in conjunction with his experience with the Clinton Foundation, and all the varied domestic and international interests therein, to gather up money for Hillary Clinton campaign.

The Clinton Global Initiative (international partners) able to deliver funding to the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton by using Tim Broas as “the loyal bagman“.

    Well, the push for fundraising could be connected to the fact that a candidate gets to keep money left from campaign coffers at the end of a campaign.

    I still expect her to have a “health issue” before Election Day. She will withdraw and the DNC can appoint a replacement candidate. That’s why it was important to get past the convention so Bernie’s campaign was done and eliminated.

    Once she withdraws or loses, the money dries up. Gotta grab as much as possible now.

      Human, it occurs to me that we keep being pointed to the gun-waving, drug-dealing, BLM, gang-member thugs. Yes, they are bad, and pretty worthless human beings. But, when you compare them to the bankers and politicians, the billionaires and trillionaires, there is no comparison.

      The first group is small potatoes, hurting themselves and all those around them through greed, stupidity and lack of values. The second group ruins everything that is good in the world, people’s faith and trust and means to provide for themselves and their families. This group doesn’t even do it out of need, just out of arrogance!

      I hope, with everything in me, that there IS a hell.

    Aug 31st to Sept 6; she also may be having some sort of “procedure”, away from prying eyes of the American 6MPixels., before the extortion/laundering dance on the 6th. That was my first idea a few days ago when I saw the schedule. Distract everyone asking why the fundraising over there and do something else under cover. Probably good idea to get some before and after images. No doubt the money issues and bloodlines are also true.

    Not that it isn’t patently illegal to fund ones American political campaign with foreign money. They’re all unapologetically open about it now, aren’t they?

    Obama’s oops we didn’t turn on the foreign filter on the website makes him look practically a saint, compared to this broad.

    The lawlessness is enough to turn your stomach. I don’t care who this Broas is – I want to know if he’s gonna be met by FBI at his return flight.

    If donations are ‘bundled’ by a homegrown amuricun….even though they came from foreign-no-fly-ne’er-do-wells…

    Would that not make it legal? Hard to trace? Would it even need to enter this country to be used by the recipient of the donations?

    Enjoy the largesse, skip the legal mumbo-jumbo…maybe launder a bit of it for convoluted trips through the financial system prior to import into the USA so the dogs have a harder time sniffing it out?

    Forgive me of my ignorance…but I am in fact ignorant of these sorts of things….

    Donation ‘bundlers’….happens all the time, right?

    We need laws in this country forbidding any political candidate from accepting funds from foreign nationals for a political campaign including fundraising events on behalf of a candidate. The corruption is truly so in your face at this point the left doesn’t try to hide it any longer because they believe with some admitted truth that the American people are deaf, dumb and blind.

    Hillary’s money has dried up. They are arranging for money to be laundered into the campaign.
    It’s not enough to bring it in. It has to be covered as domestic.
    Obama brought in at least half a billion in 2008. If you could watch prepaid cards and church donations you would see some of it. The rest is just straight NYC banks laundering like they do for the drug cartel, the FED’s bailout, and other government urgencies. Big money gets laundered through CITI, HSBC, G-S. Deutche Bank is too dirty to use any more.

    The stakes are already being discussed in ZH. 4 Trillion for the next QE, probably will need much more to hold up a dead economy. They have to get Clinton or they are all going to prison. So, laundering is never something pointing to the true culprits. All that happens is fines.

    They think they can save her in 80 days. They will need 200 million to bribe local election officials and 500 million for insane media (TV ads cover the 24/7 anti-Trump fear mongering.)

    They have too many states that are leaking her base away.

      There’s a lot of truth to what you said. People accuse Trump of perpetrating a massive fraud in his election effort for the purpose of boosting his brand. But everyone knows that getting in to betray his voters for some media/brand-boosting attention would fatally damage his image.

      Clinton, on the other hand, has a nice, big, beautiful golden parachute. If she loses, she has this massive worldwide political network to fall back upon and the media will happily cover for her.

    I don’t think Hillary’s continued fundraising at this point means all that much. Obama has been doing fundraisers throughout his second term, after all, even though he won’t be running for anything anymore.

    I do think she’s floundering and Trump is going to win in a landslide, but I don’t see her continued fundraising as a sign of this. She’s just a greedy politician, looking to rake in as much money as she can before she loses.

    But, we might be able to make some hay out of her continued soliciting of foreign money, which should be illegal… and actually is illegal, but she won’t be prosecuted for it because she’s of the favored class. Still, this looks bad to the general voting public, so getting the word out there about that is still important.

    The law of “Conservation of Energy” states that Energy never disappears, but it does change form.
    This is also true with money.

    Think of the hundred of million changing hands in this election year…
    where is it going? who benefits ?

    Would Hillary really spend 80 million in 60 days on TV network that attack her ?
    No.. CNN, MSNBC, ABC, etc.. knows that if they tell become critical of Hillary they can loose hundreds of millions in revenue.

    Our election system is broken… absolutely broken as it promote corruption.

    Also think of the millions of Bernie supporters that donated some of their hard earned money to fight Hillary, for some it might have been a meal, what did they get in return ? a stab in the back.
