Turns out, it pays to be a Democrat supporting the Keystone XL pipeline.
A newly released GAI timeline reveals how Bill Clinton bagged $1.8 million for 10 speeches between Nov. 2008 and mid-2011 funded by one of the largest shareholders in the Keystone XL pipeline, TD Bank, which held a $1.6 billion investment in the deal.
During this period, then-Sec. of State Hillary Clinton made critical decisions related to the Keystone XL pipeline’s advancement.
On Monday, the Huffington Post confirmed GAI’s reporting and expanded on it, noting that Hillary Clinton herself has scored $1.6 million in speaking fees for eight speeches she delivered that were paid for by TD Bank and Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce.
