Back in 1993, federal forfeiture procedure had fewer Due Process protections and more obstacles for forfeiture victims ("claimants") trying to defend their property. After eight years of lobbying, our forfeiture reform bill, CAFRA was enacted in 2000. Some of the abuses came to an end, but new abuses cropped up. Now 16 years after CAFRA reformed the law, things are as just as bad - or even worse than before. Because there are now 200 more federal forfeiture triggering offenses, forfeiture is more widespread. Forfeiture revenue is up dramatically - from $500 million in federal forfeiture revenue in fiscal year 2001 to $5 billion in fiscal year 2014. Today, average law abiding investors have even more to fear from asset forfeiture. This book is written to educate investors and give helpful tips for avoiding forfeiture.

Bill and Hillary Clinton were paid $47.7 million for 184 speeches in the two years immediately before Hillary officially declared her campaign for the presidency. These payments were not campaign contributions or even donations to the Clinton Foundation — but the same donors often contributed to those too. These speaking fees were paid directly to the Clintons as personal income, to spend as they choose.

This book profiles the corporations that paid them between $225,000 and $750,000 for each speech, generally lasting one hour.  Some corporations hosted many speeches by them.

The vast sums involved are not the only shockers. Some of the corporations that made the payments were deeply involved in numerous scandals and disasters including the real estate bubble, the derivatives bubble and the banking collapse.

Many of these corporations were not only too big to fail, but are near monopolies that grow ever larger by swallowing up the competition, and nobody tries to stop them. They have enjoyed very lax enforcement under the past few presidencies, and continually influence Congress and legislation by spending heavily on lobbying and contributing to political campaigns. Despite the damage they have done to individuals and the US and world economy, the executives that directed the risky and/or illegal behavior at these corporations did not go to prison. The corporations paid fines – often in the billions of dollars – and passed the costs on to the consumer. It became the cost of doing business.

Who Owns Hillary? also explores the legal and ethical problems caused by their taking such huge fees from corporations that will likely have issues before the next president.
