A case of US governmental meddling in the political affairs of a foreign ally previously investigated by Congress appears to have also been part of a scheme to launder taxpayer money and use it to fund the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton, a crowdsourced investigation online has revealed. The effort has revealed that organizations tied to high ranking members of Shareblue and its holding company conspired with John Kerry’s Department of State to use taxpayer funds in an effort to unseat Benjamin Netanyahu as the Prime Minister of Israel. The funds appear to potentially have then been laundered and returned via a campaign consulting group tied to former President Barack Obama, ultimately being used to fund the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton.

I. Funds Passed From The Department Of State Were Used By OneVoice In An Attempt To Unseat Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

Peter Daou is the CEO of Shareblue’s holding company, True Blue Media LLC. Mr. Daou played an integral role in the site’s transformation from True Blue Media to Shareblue. Mr. Daou was also a former advisor to Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and former Senator Arlen Specter. His website reveals that he has also advised the Clinton Foundation, the now shuttered Clinton Global Initiative, the U.S. Department of Energy, the United Nations Foundation, Microsoft, Intel, AARP, Inc., Action Against Hunger, PR Newswire and Bloomberg Philanthropies, two news organizations which both have close ties to the City of London-based UBM plc.

Mr. Daou has played an advisory role for OneVoice International, an “international grassroots movement that amplifies the voice of mainstream Israelis and Palestinians, empowering them to propel their elected representatives toward the two-state solution.” OneVoice’s partners include an impressive list of global special interests including the Association of British Muslims, the UK Conservative Party, Google, Crown Family Philanthropies, the European Commission (part of the European Union), High Atlas Foundation, the UK Labour Party, the Rayne Foundation and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. Peter Daou’s involvement with OneVoice creates a very apparent conflict of interest given the massive number of foreign interests who are affiliated with the organization. Gary Gladstein, the former Chief Operating Officer of Soros Fund Management, is listed as an Honorary Board Member of OneVoice.

In 2014, OneVoice was awarded nearly $350,000 by the Department of State just weeks after most political observers said it was only a matter of time before the Netanyahu coalition would collapse and new elections would be held. The cash was used by OneVoicePalestine (OVP) in their “The Land is Ours” on September 25, 2014 in a campaign to promote the stated American policy of a “two-state solution” and the un-stated policy of deciding the borders for a Palestinian Authority country. The money ultimately ended up in the hands of Victory 15, a “grassroots style” campaign whose main objective was to unseat Benjamin Netanyahu as Prime Minister of Israel in the 2015 legislative elections.

While OneVoice maintained that they did not directly use or grant the funds to influence the 2015 elections, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations found that this was exactly what transpired. OneVoice in fact, “deployed the campaign infrastructure and resources created using grant funds to support an anti-Netanyahu political campaign.” The subcommittee ultimately found no legal wrongdoing by State because there was restriction on how the peace process infrastructure could be used after the grant expired in 2014. OneVoice had previously engaged in political activism during Israel’s 2013 elections, leading the State Department to be criticized for “lax oversight” which caused officials to miss clear warning signs and allowed the use of taxpayer funds to intervene in the internal affairs of a strategic American ally.
