Independent Journal Review:

In January, one of the world’s richest men, Carlos Slim, doubled his stake in the New York Times, which allowed him to control an unprecedented 16.8% of the company. Slim also turns out to have quite the close relationship with the Clintons, according to the Washington Free Beacon:

“Not only has Slim contributed between $1,000,001 and $5,000,000 to the Clinton Foundation, but his company Telmex has contributed an additional grant between $1,000,001 and $5,000,000 through its foundation. Slim has also pledged $100 million to the Clinton Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative, a collaboration between the Clinton Foundation and Canadian mining tycoon Frank Giustra.”

Slim doesn’t appear to be troubled by any conflict of interest, as his history with the Clinton’s doesn’t stop there. The Clinton Foundation reports Hillary was once paid between $250,000 and $500,000 for a speech to Slim’s Telmex Foundation:

A glowing quote from Bill Clinton about Slim’s charitable efforts even appears on Slim’s website.

The Washington Free Beacon also notes that Slim has received two awards from the Clinton Foundation in the last decade:

“Slim was given an award for his philanthropic work by Clinton at the 2006 Clinton Global Initiative annual meeting, which was presented to him by actress Eva Longoria. He was honored again in 2012, when he was given the CGI Global Citizen Award.”

The business mogul isn’t the only notable figure to have connections with the Clinton Foundation. One of The New York Times’ board of directors and the CEO have both donated large sums of money to the organization.

The Clinton Foundation donated $100,000 to a New York Times group in 2008, which was the same year the paper endorsed Clinton for president over then-Senator Barack Obama.
