As I’ve been saying all along, Hunter Biden’s cushy no-show $50,000 a month salary from a Ukrainian gas company is only the tip of the iceberg. Why would House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Intel Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Judiciary Chairman Jerald Nadler (D-NY) all rush to viciously defend presidential contender Joe Biden from the fallout of his crack-smoking son’s corrupt job?
If there’s any politician with an “Expendable” sign tattooed on his forehead, it’s a senile former vice president. They could easily throw Biden under the bus and hope for the best in 2020 with Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders or Pete Buttigieg. The real reason why the Democrats are eager to protect Biden is because they are, in fact, protecting themselves and their own kids with cushy, corrupt no-show jobs. Let’s not kid ourselves. These are not “jobs.” They are “bribes.”
And the queen of the wildly overpaid no-show jobs in swampland is Chelsea Clinton.
Knowing full well that Hillary Clinton would run for president in 2016, NBC News gave Chelsea Clinton a $600,000 per year job from 2011 until 2014. With no journalism experience whatsoever, Chelsea was given this job for no reason other than to curry favor and gain exclusive access to her powerful parents in the run-up to the election. Chelsea was given the monumental task of producing two stories per month.
Under normal circumstances, a fresh-out-of-college reporter at a network affiliate station will start out at a salary of about $30,000 per year. And they’ll be tasked with covering two to eight stories per day, depending on the market they’re in.
But Chelsea went straight to the top, sitting across from NBC News’ Brian Williams at the anchor desk in New York to regale America with her hard-hitting interviews with the Geico cartoon gecko.
It probably did wonders for the morale of the NBC News reporters who had to do things like “show up on time” and “work” for their much smaller salaries. For the Clintons, this was the equivalent of their daughter Chelsea starting in the mail room.
But Chelsea has moved on from that, according to the latest stock filings from IAC/InterActiveCorps. Chelsea put in her time in the trenches at NBC News, so now the 39-year-old can enjoy the fruits of that hard labor. IAC is controlled by wealthy Clinton mega-donor Barry Diller. Chelsea sits on the corporate board at IAC, which pays her a $50,000 a year retainer and $250,000 in restricted IAC stock units.
Thanks to the booming stock market and her years of “work” on the IAC board, Chelsea now owns more than 35,000 shares in IAC. When a person retires from the IAC board, they’re allowed to cash in those stocks.
As of today, Chelsea’s shares are worth roughly $9 million. And that’s just one of the boards that the highly accomplished Chelsea Clinton sits on.
She’s also on the board for Common Sense Media, which is owned by Clinton donor James Steyer. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because James Steyer is the brother of impeachment kook and billionaire Tom Steyer, who has spent vast sums of his fortune over the past three years pushing the Democrats to impeach President Trump. Chelsea’s earnings from Common Sense Media are unknown.
Thanks to her extensive medical experience, Chelsea also sits on the board of one of the Ivy League’s most prestigious medical schools, the Sanford Weill Cornell School of Medicine. This is entirely due to Chelsea Clinton’s knowledge of medicine, which she didn’t actually major in during college.
It has nothing to do with the fact that the school is named for billionaire Clinton donor and former Citigroup chairman Sanford Weill. No, just because Sandord Weill was a maximum donor for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 and 2016 presidential runs, does not mean there is anything shady about Chelsea sitting on that board.
There’s nothing corrupt about it at all! Just as there’s nothing corrupt about Hunter Biden sitting on the board of Burisma in Ukraine, or Nancy Pelosi’s son sitting on the board for a different Ukrainian gas company.
And the fact that Chelsea Clinton’s husband, investment banker Marvin Mezvinsky, sits on the board of the Ann Romney Center for Neurological Diseases (named for Trump-hating Utah Senator Mitt Romney’s wife), doesn’t mean there’s any corruption in the swamp, either, you conspiracy theorists! So, stop asking all those inconvenient questions about Hunter Biden, already!
