Hillary Clinton met with a Russian lawyer who leads an organization dedicated to fostering business relationships between Russian attorneys and lawyers in other countries including the United States.
The Clinton Foundation sponsored a “Millenium Network” event in San Francisco, where Hillary and daughter Chelsea were photographed with Ekaterina Safonova, director of CECJ.
What is CECJ?
CECJ in New York holds an annual International Networking Congress for Lawyers, which states as its mission the following:
- “The establishment of contacts with American, Russian and other lawyers who are interested in international collaboration
- To offer services of American, Russian and other foreign lawyers for the representation of their clients’ interests in your country
- Find a trustworthy partner in the USA, whom you can refer to in order to solve your clients’ queries
- Be part of the unique Directory of foreign lawyers, which will be distributed amongst more than 200 companies in New York, who are interested in international collaboration”
CECJ offers a speed-networking program to foster relationships between American and Russian lawyers, described on its site as such:
“If you are an American Lawyer:
- Interested in widening your network with colleagues from Russia and Countries within the EU
- Have a professional interest with Russia and the EU
- Desire to represent the interests of Russian and European clients in the USA
We cordially invite you to participate in the meeting between Russian and European lawyers, organised in a Speed Networking format.”
CECJ has promoted Safonova’s meeting with Clinton, with one directory stating: Positive results of the CECJ’s operation are confirmed by the fruitful cooperation with dozens of important organizations, awards, accreditations of our national projects in EU and Russia and invitations to many international events (such as the Millennium Network in San Francisco by the Clinton Foundation, in the presence of Hillary Clinton, former US Secretary of State and current candidate for the Democratic Party primary nomination for President of the United States).
NEW: Joe Biden Bashes Incoming Trump Administration In Leaked 2016 Call to President of Ukraine
Joe Biden speaks in critical and partisan terms of the incoming Trump administration in a new leaked call to the President of Ukraine unveiled Wednesday.
In the call, conducted in November 2016 a week after then-candidate Trump’s election victory, Biden bashes the incoming administration to the foreign leader, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Biden assails the Trump transition team as incompetent, turning down the idea of visiting the country before the January transition before Trump is “fully briefed” on matters related to Ukraine.
In a second call, Biden asks for Poroshenko to describe his conversations with incoming President Trump, going to to speak of Trump in more dismissive terms. He describes Trump as a “dog who caught the car, and who doesn’t know what to do.” Not quite a “dog-faced pony soldier,” but definitely not an appropriate way for an outgoing vice president to describe an incoming president to a foreign leader.
A Ukrainian comedian originally released the calls, suggesting questionable operational security within the conversations of Joe Biden and Poroshenko. Biden has a lengthy history of ethical questions regarding his relationship with Ukraine, including looking the other way as his son Hunter secured an extremely lucrative position at a Ukrainian oil company without any experience whatsoever in the energy industry.
Biden himself would later go on to demand the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating corruption allegations against the younger Biden, a clear conflict of interest Biden merely dismissed when he spoke openly of securing the prosecutor’s firing at a Council on Foreign Relations public event.
This is a totally inappropriate way for a Vice President to speak to a foreign leader, and the public should be concerned about how Biden plans to conduct diplomacy should he be elected President.
