Stockholder just wants Boeing to be upfront

A free market think tank is calling Boeing to task for refusing to disclose the contents of correspondence related to a large donation the aircraft manufacturer made to the Clinton Foundation.

The National Center for Public Policy Research has long been known for buying stock in major corporations in order to get access to shareholder meetings. So as a stockholder of Boeing, executive director David Almasi says The National Center wants to inspect the emails exchanged between the aircraft giant and the State Department during the time when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state and helped Boeing secure a lucrative contract with the Russian government.

Almasi, David (Project 21)"After Hillary Clinton made her own -- quote -- 'a shameless pitch for Boeing jets' to the state-run Russian airline, they settled on a $3.7 billion contract with Boeing," Almasi recalls. "After that happened, there was a $900,000 grant made by Boeing to the charitable foundation run by the Clinton family."

So Almasi thinks Boeing should set the record straight.

"You had a situation where the company that benefited from a public official's help, her family foundation got a sizeable grant from that company," he summarizes. "Is it above board? Could be. They could have done nothing wrong. Buy we're asking them to be upfront and let us know, and that's what they're kind of fighting us on for some reason."

Almasi says there is at least an appearance of some kind of quid pro quo in this deal, and that is why his organization wants Boeing to provide the emails.
