The Clinton Cash writer Peter Schweizer is out to rock the U.S.-Indian relationship with yet another controversial book which is taunted to be his next blockbuster.
The book, titled Secret Empires: How Our Politicians Hide Corruption and Enrich Their Families and Friends is said to be Washington forthcoming investigative blockbuster to be published not later than March 20.
It is already capturing a lot of attention owing to the book’s explosive contents and the reputation of the writer who sparked off an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation with his first book “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich.”
Breitbart, far-right American news, opinion and commentary website, said the forthcoming investigative Washington blockbuster Secret Empires soared to #60 on the Amazon bestsellers list less than 24-hours after publishing giant HarperCollins announced the book’s publication on Monday.
It is currently listed as #1 Best Seller in on Amazon. The hardcover edition is priced at US$22.86 and the kindle version at US$14.99.
Peter Schweizer is also Government Accountability Institute President and Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large.
“According to Axios’s Mike Allen, the book is already capturing the attention of members of Congress. Indeed, Schweizer is reportedly heading to Capitol Hill to brief lawmakers about the book’s explosive contents,” said Breitbart.
Schweizer’s last New York Times bestseller, Clinton Cash, sparked an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation after it revealed that Hillary Clinton’s State Department, along with other agencies, approved the transfer of 20 percent of U.S. uranium to Russia and that nine foreign investors in the deal funneled $145 million to the Clinton Foundation.
Little is known about the contents of Schweizer’s next book. A cover image released by the publisher on Monday features five images of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), former Vice President Joe Biden, former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State John Kerry, and President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.
According to publishing sources, “The book will expose vast corruption by top Washington figures who leverage their political power to enrich their family members and friends, often by helping grease deals with foreign entities.”
Clinton Cash had a chapter titled “Indian Nukes: How to Win a Medal by Changing Hillary’s Mind,” detailing a series of donations and overtures from Indians who supported the nuclear deal to the Clintons.
It pointed to one case of an Indian-American Clinton donor — who in April 2014 pleaded guilty in an illegal contribution scheme for Clinton’s 2008 run — receiving an award from the Indian government for his work in securing the agreement.
The book also revealed a donation of $5 million by an Indian politician to Clinton Foundation that “changed her position on the 2008 nuclear agreement between the United States and India.”
“In 1998 after the Indian government conducted nuclear tests, Bill Clinton imposed restrictions on the export of U.S. nuclear technology, because this violated the nonproliferation treaty — Hillary Clinton supported that position.
“In 2005, the Indian government wanted those restrictions lifted. Hillary Clinton at that time supported a killer amendment to stop that from happening,” wrote GGInews India.
