A big-time Hillary fundraiser from who-knows-where has pleaded guilty to conspiring to violate campaign finance laws by reimbursing people who he convinced to donate large sums of money to Hillary’s primary campaign in 2008. And then when the crook is caught, the bastard goes on to commit witness tampering during the trial? Yep, sounds like a friend of the Clinton’s, all right..
Oh, be assured, he’s a buddy of Obama’s too — read the details below — but Hillary Clinton takes illegal money from the Chinese, CEO’s of Healthcare Corporations, even some lowlife named “Uncle Earl” – so I must ask you:
Does anyone really believe Hillary Clinton will be different during her 2016 campaign anymore than a leopard can change it’s spots?

A hotel executive and Democratic fundraiser has pleaded guilty in New York to witness tampering and conspiracy to evade campaign finance laws. Hampshire Hotels chairman Sant Singh Chatwal appeared Thursday in federal court in Brooklyn. The candidates were not identified. Chatwal, whose firm runs hotels around the world, had raised at least $100,000 for Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign against Barack Obama.
“Mr Chatwal deeply regrets his actions and accepts full responsibility for the consequences. He looks forward to resolving this personal matter,” a spokesperson for Chatwal told CNBC on Thursday. According to the Justice Department, Chatwal made more than $180,000 in donations to three candidates via straw donors, who were then reimbursed.
Back in June of 2008, rediff.com also reported this interesting tidbit:
Sant Chatwal, millionaire hotelier and close friend and fund-raiser for the Clintons for several years, has assured Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama that the Indian American community will raise over $10 million for his campaign to win back the White House.
Chatwal was introduced to Obama by Senator Hillary Clinton at a private meeting between them and Clinton’s top donors at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC on June 26.
Chatwal told rediff.com that at the meeting, “Obama, myself and Hillary spent five minutes together, and now we have all basically endorsed Obama. We will be doing the biggest fund-raiser for Obama.”
“Obama told me, ‘Mr Chatwal, my office has been trying to reach you, and I said, ‘I was waiting for the order from my boss (Senator Clinton), and now, I got it,’ and I said, ‘I am going to hold the biggest fundraiser you have ever seen in your life.'” .. So we are going to do it. We will raise over $10 million for the Obama campaign..”
Of course there was the obligatory disclaimer from Eric Holder to protect his overlord and overlordess: “There is no allegation that the candidates participated in, or were aware of, Chatwal’s scheme,” the DOJ said. In addition to the straw donors, the Justice Dept. said Chatwal tampered with a witness to try and interfere with a grand jury probe…
… Sounds to me like the checks stopped clearing..
