This Hollywood billionaire has invested millions in Hillary Clinton. What does he want?
But there is one subject on which Saban does not hold back: his
relationship with Bill and Hillary Clinton. No single political patron
has done more for the Clintons over the span of their careers. In the
past 20 years, Saban and his wife have donated $2.4 million to the Clintons’ various campaigns and at least $15 million to the Clinton Foundation,
where Cheryl Saban serves as a board member. Haim Saban prides himself
on his top-giver status: “If I’m not No. 1, I’m going to cut my balls
off,” he once remarked on the eve of a Hillary fundraiser. The Sabans have given more than $10 million
to Priorities USA, making them among the largest funders of the
pro-Hillary super-PAC. In the lead-up to the 2016 presidential campaign,
he vowed to spend “whatever it takes” to elect her.
