Have you heard about Hillary Clinton’s son-in-law, Marc Mezvinsky, and his busted hedge fund? Two years ago, he started a small hedge fund with $25 million (small by hedge fund standards, that is) named Eaglevale Hellenic Opportunity to invest in “Greek bank stocks and government debt.” The New York Times reported earlier this month that Mezvinsky lost 90% of the money and was closing up shop:
Now, two years later, the Greece-focused fund is shutting down, after losing nearly 90 percent of its value, according to two investors with direct knowledge of the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
Investors were told last month that the fund would close. The fund, Eaglevale Hellenic Opportunity, had raised $25 million from investors to buy Greek bank stocks and government debt.
Now here’s where Hillary Clinton comes in. It turns out that Lloyd Blankfein, CEO of Goldman Sachs, is one of the investors but Hillary won’t say how much (Mezvinsky and his two partners at Eaglevale worked for Goldman):

We already know that Hillary and Bill have taken millions from Goldman. Was this a way to further ingratiate the firm with quite possibly the next President of the United States?

Just tell us the truth, guys … we’re going to find out eventually:
If Hillary Clinton, Lloyd Blankfein & Marc Mezvinsky all avoid the question, it makes things more suspicious.@Crayz9000
