Fox News Analyst and Clinton Operative, Douglas E. Schoen, Accepted Millions of Dollars to Agitate for War with Russia
In a remarkable conflict-of-interest, Fox News analyst and former Clinton operative Douglas E. Schoen has failed to disclosed to readers that he’s been paid millions of dollars from Ukrainian agents to incite a war between the United States and Russia. Before inciting war with Russia, Schoen worked for Bill Clinton and brokered meeting (for $40,000 a month) between then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and billionaire oligarchs.
This shocking story reveals an entangled web of foreign money, propaganda, and a complete lack of ethics and transparency at Fox News.
Amy Chozik of the New York Times wrote about Schoen’s connections with Victor Pinchuk. In “Trade Dispute Centers on Ukrainian Executive With Ties to Clintons,” Chozik reveals:
Mr. Schoen had been on a $40,000-per-month retainer as an adviser to Mr. Pinchuk since 2000. In 2011, Mr. Schoen, who had never previously done any lobbying, registered as a lobbyist for him to set up meetings with Washington officials to discuss the political crisis in Ukraine.
Pinchuk was a member of Ukrainian parliament from 1998 to 2006, and thus Schoen was paid $40,000 a month by a foreign government while he himself had close Clinton ties.
Schoen began as an errand boy for Pinchuk, doing run-of-the-mill corruption like using his access to the Clinton family to arrange meetings.
