Viewers can now watch Clinton Cash online and see the controversial documentary that uncovers how Bill and Hillary Clinton built up a net worth of more than $150 million and established a foundation that takes in $2 billion in donations since leaving the White House in 2001.
The film was adapted from the New York Times bestseller Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich, written by Peter Schweizer. It follows the sources of the Clintons’ wealth and the seemingly intertwined and shadowy connections between her work as secretary of State and the donations taken in by the foundation.
The full movie can be seen below.
Clinton Cash has already had a big impact on the political landscape. While Hillary Clinton has been the target of political smears for decades, most of them originating from the far-right, this book and subsequent movie was taken much more seriously. The New York Times published a review of the book noting that its findings appeared to be very different than the “conservative propaganda” that the Clinton campaign had grown used to confronting.
“But Clinton Cash is potentially more unsettling, both because of its focused reporting and because major news organizations including The Times, The Washington Post and Fox News have exclusive agreements with the author to pursue the story lines found in the book.”
As the description for Clinton Cash noted, the fortune amassed by the Clintons had some questionable ties.
“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 movie adaptation of the book was funded by Breitbart News executive chairman Stephen Bannon, and on Saturday the movie aired on Breitbart‘s website. It is set to replay on Sunday at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.
The timing of Clinton Cash‘s release could be troubling for Hillary Clinton, who has seen her lead over Donald Trump evaporate in the days after the the Republican National Convention came to an end. Clinton has suffered a difficult weekend, with her pick of Tim Kaine as a running mate overshadowed by a release of close to 20,000 emails from the Democratic National Committee that appeared to show the party conspiring against Clinton’s primary opponent, Bernie Sanders.
The movie could also be a mark against Hillary Clinton as she starts her own convention, which has been seen as an important moment in her campaign as the party comes together after what was a bruising primary season. Though Clinton herself remains largely unpopular with the voting public, the convention will have many popular surrogates speaking on her behalf, including Bernie Sanders and both Barack and Michelle Obama.
But the growing number of people watching Clinton Cash online — along with a large contingent of Sanders-supporting protesters planning to attend the convention — could turn Clinton’s good week into a headache. The movie has already racked up thousands of views, with more likely to come before the weekend is over.
The movie’s free release has already generated plenty of attention, with many outlets posting links to the streaming video and supporters sharing information about the sources of Clinton’s donations.
Those who want to watch Clinton Cash online can also find full streaming video at Breitbart, though the movie’s viewing is restricted to the specific broadcast times.
