A new ad, ripped from the pages of the New York Times best-selling Clinton Cash: A Graphic Novel, puts an animated face on the shady connections and transactions between Clinton Foundation donors, paid speeches given by Bill Clinton, and actions approved by the U.S. State Department while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.

“Hillary Clinton does business with some of the worst people in the world. Always for the benefit of the slush fund known as the Clinton Foundation — People like Paul Kagame, Riek Machar, Gilbert Chagoury, and General Paulino Matip Nhial,” a narrator says in the one-minute Clinton Cash ad titled, “Quid Pro Quo,” obtained exclusively by Breitbart News.

A pattern of behavior emerges,” the narrator continues. “The pattern begins with a poor country that’s rich in natural resources. A country run by a tyrannical autocrat ready to do business… Bill is paid to give speeches. Hillary uses her powers to remove any obstacles. Contributions are paid to Clinton interests. As her power and influence grow, so does Hillary and Bill’s bottom line.”

This pattern of corruption, the ad explains, is how the Clintons went from being “dead broke” to “overseeing an international organization worth billions.”


The new Clinton Cash ad comes a week after comic book artist Brett R. Smith, the artistic mind behind Clinton Cash: A Graphic Novel, called the best-selling book — fashioned for a millennial audience — “the most subversive foray into pop culture the right has ever attempted.”

“More importantly, it has been successful,” Smith said. “So successful and effective in fact that it was recently banned from the shelves of a Florida Public Library.”

The graphic novel always meant to convey the fact-based reporting found in Clinton Cash “in a way that makes it accessible to people who don’t have time to sit down and read a serious nonfiction book,” Clinton Cash author and Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer told Fox & Friends in a recent interview.

“I think millennials love this sort of approach because it’s humorous,” Schweizer said. “They put in humor. It’s a lot of great visual images.”

“The Right has not lost the culture war. The Right has almost ceded the culture war by not engaging, and I really wanted to use the Left’s weapons back on them,” Smith said in August on Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM radio.

“It’s payback time. They don’t own pop culture. They don’t own it all. They don’t own that territory, and we need to start taking it back,” he said. “Jon Stewart just signed a four-year deal with HBO. He’s got an animation studio geared up. He’s got 3-D graphics cranking. We need to start fighting fire with fire and show up to the gunfight with a flamethrower.”
