Despite what the Trump transition and mainstream media may be telling you the investigation into Hillary Clinton is not over. It’s just evolving. The FBI is still investigating the pay for play activity of the Clinton Foundation, and the Trump team is asking other countries to help.
Sources inside the transition team told the The NY Post the new administration plans instruct the US ambassadors it will appoint to suggest to foreign governments they probe the Clinton foundation financial dealings.
“Haiti and Colombia will be key diplomatic posts for this because of all the money involved,” said the source.
In Haiti, recently leaked e-mails indicate “Friends of Bill” Clinton may have been given priority from the State Department as it prepared to spend some $10 billion in aid after a devastating earthquake hit the country in 2010. The State Department has denied any special treatment.
Haiti may have the most reasons to aid in the investigations. After that horrible 7.0 magnitude earthquake in January 2010, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her husband, Clinton Foundation Chief/ former POTUS Bubba visited Haiti just a few days after the devastation occurred. Both promised to help Haiti rebuild. In fact, Bill was named the UN special envoy to Haiti and in conjunction with his Secretary of State wife controlled billions of dollars of contracts awarded by the State Department to rebuild Haiti. “Coincidentally” many of those companies who got one of those lucrative State Dept. contracts to help rebuild Haiti, also “just happened to” give large donations to the Clinton Foundation.
For example, there was the Haitian Mobile Money Initiative a system developed to allow Haitians to transfer money via cell phones after the That contract was awarded to a company called Digicel who earned more than $50 million in Haiti. The company is run by Irish billionaire who set-up high-paying speeches for Bill Clinton and donated millions of his own money to the Clinton Foundation.
One program put in place to enable Haiti to raise needed capital by exploiting the country’s mineral resources. One of the companies which got a mining permit was VCS Mining. The company had little experience in mining, but right after they got the contract “just happened” to put Hillary Clinton’s brother Tony, on its Board of Directors.
Then there was the Caracol Industrial Park, announced in Haiti with great fanfare at a ceremony which included many American Celebrities. The Anchor store is a Korean manufacturer who “just happened” to be Clinton supporters.
During the presidential campaign, the former president of the Haitian Senate, Bernard Sansaricq, told Donald Trump that he had the documentation to prove that the Clintons tried to bribe him in an effort to get his support for the Clinton foundation’s work to defraud the people of Haiti.
So Clinton Foundation staff was hobnobbing with a powerful Haitian politician and using connections at the State Department to try to influence U.S. policy decisions involving that same politician. That’s unethical and it is also contrary to what Mrs. Clinton promised when she went before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in January 2009 as president-elect Barack Obama’s secretary of state nominee. But most of those promises were ignored.
In Colombia, Canadian mining magnate Frank Giustra pledged $100 million to the foundation in 2005 and later benefited from the foundation’s philanthropic work in the country, where he acquired large parcels of land and set up an oil business, according to watchdog groups.
A long-time friend of Bubba Clinton’s Giustra was also a key player in the Uranium One scandal as outlined in the Peter Schweizer book Clinton Cash. Nine investors who profited from the uranium deal which gave ownership of 20% of the U.S. uranium supply collectively donated $145 million to Hillary’s family foundation, including Clinton Foundation mega donor and Canadian mining billionaire Frank Giustra, who pledged $100 million.
The Clinton Foundation, headed by Donna Shalala, the former health and human services secretary in the Clinton administration, has received millions from dozens of foreign governments including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the Netherlands, Canada, Sweden and Ireland.
Days after Hillary Clinton’s election defeat, French federal comptrollers began following a trail of tens of millions in government money that ended up in Clinton Foundation coffers, according to a document reviewed by The Post.
After the Hillary Clinton election defeat the Australian and Norwegian governments their donations to the Clinton Foundation and Foundation donations in total dropped by 37 percent to $108 million last year. was it because of the evidence turned up that the foundation was simply part of a criminal pay for play enterprise? Or perhaps it was because foreign government’s originally donated for the opportunity to influence foreign policy, and with the Hillary loss that was no longer possible.
Whether the donations were cut because of the possible pay for play charges or because the Clinton’s could no longer help them influence foreign policy, Trump may have the right idea. Foreign governments may be more likely to help the U.S. discover the truth about the Clinton Foundation using the State Department and American foreign policy to make the Clinton Family wealthy.
