New Clinton Foundation Probe Sends Alarming Signal to Foreign Gov'ts – Analyst

from Sputnik News:

The Clinton Foundation probe may result in the exposure of foreign government officials and prestigious foundations, Wall Street analyst Charles Ortel suggested, speaking to Sputnik. It is probable that foreign entities were aware of the charity’s alleged fraud and even benefitted from it, he said, assuming that Donald Trump will reverse the trend.

A new FBI probe into the Clinton Foundation should send an alarming signal to foreign governments and individuals who have provided donations to the charity over the past two decades, Wall Street analyst and investigative journalist Charles Ortel told Sputnik.

“Numerous governments have sent substantial sums towards the Clinton Foundation; yet to date, the Clinton Foundation refuses to account publicly, as is required, for specifics concerning each government donation (state laws in New York and California require this for example),” Ortel stressed.

The analyst pointed out that “out of about $2.3 billion in total declared donations [to the Clinton Foundation] since 1997, a large non-governmental organization called UNITAID that is backed by France, the UK, Norway, Spain, South Korea and other governments as well as by the Gates Foundation has sent more than $600 million towards the HIV/AIDS fighting part of the Clinton Foundation that was never lawfully organized or operated.”

The investigative journalist emphasized that many other governments, such as Australia, Ireland, Norway, Saudi Arabia, and Sweden “have also sent large sums towards the Clinton Foundation but, so far, have failed to complain about boldly inaccurate accounting policies and evident defects in public disclosures.”

Why Foreign Gov’ts Turned a Blind Eye to Clinton Charity’s Alleged Fraud

In his previous interviews with Sputnik, the analyst, who has been conducting a private investigation into the Clinton charity’s alleged fraud, has repeatedly raised the question as to why foreign governments remain seemingly reluctant to expose the Foundation’s misdeeds.

“The numerous foreign governments that seem to be associated with Clinton ‘charities’ have behaved deplorably,” Ortel told Sputnik in August 2017, suggesting that they apparently realized that a thorough investigation into the matter could result in “acute embarrassment and even legal exposures for individuals and [foreign governments] involved.”

Over the past two decades the Clintons have created nothing short of a globalist network with their loyalists in senior positions in foreign governments.

“All the [foreign government] money is in.” Bill Clinton Chief of Staff Tina Flournoy tells Hillary campaign chair John Podesta in February 2015.

​In 2014 Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch drew attention to Bill Clinton’s speaking and consulting activities worldwide during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as a secretary of state. According to the documents released by the watchdog, Mr. Clinton delivered high-paid speeches in China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Central America, Europe, Turkey, Thailand, Taiwan, India and the Cayman Islands.


215 Bill Clinton speeches, etc were approved by State Department while Hillary Clinton was SecState — led to $48 million for Clinton cash machine. That is a lot for the FBI and Congress to investigate. @JudiicalWatch already did the leg work — … …

11:58 AM – Jan 7, 2018

State Department approved 215 Bill Clinton speeches, controversial consulting deal, worth $48m;…

A joint investigation by the Washington Examiner and the nonprofit watchdog group Judicial Watch found that former President Clintongave 215 speeches and earned $48 million while his wife presided…

​”How the Obama State Department waived hundreds of ethical conflicts that allowed the Clintons and their businesses to accept money from foreign entities and corporations seeking influence boggles the mind,” Fitton highlighted. “That former President Clinton trotted the globe collecting huge speaking fees while his wife presided over US foreign policy is an outrage.”

Will Trump Get Proponents of ‘Unregulated Globalism’ on the Run?

However, it appears that a reverse trend is now gaining pace. As the Wall Street analyst remarked in his November 2017 interview with Sputnik, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s anti-corruption initiative that resulted in the detention of 11 princes, including Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, one of the world’s richest people and a Clinton loyalist; his detention could be regarded as part of such a shift.

Meanwhile, on December 21, 2017, Donald Trump signed an Executive Order (EO) which stipulates that US-housed assets belonging to foreign entities and individuals involved in “serious human rights abuse” or corruption could be frozen. Furthermore, the EO targets US citizens who either helped or participated in the aforementioned abuses. The order contains a list of 13 foreign individuals from Pakistan, Ukraine, Gambia, Sudan, Nicaragua, China, Russia and etc. The EO is based on the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act (Public Law 114-328).

As financial blog Zero Hedge claims, the list includes several persons who allegedly have ties to the Clintons or the Clinton Foundation, such as Goulnara Karimova (Uzbekistan), Dan Gertler (Israel, Democratic Republic of the Congo), Yahya Jammeh (Gambia), Angel Rondon Rijo (Dominican Republic) and Benjamin Bol Mel (Sudan).

Does this mean the Trump administration is seeking to get rid of the Clintons’ loyalists across the globe who, as one can easily imagine, may throw sand in the gears of the US president’s foreign policy?

“Trump’s team seems keenly aware of economic realities and wants to cement America’s role as the largest unified market for goods and services in the world, as well as potentially the safest place to invest and store money,” Ortel responded.

According to the Wall Street analyst, “Trump’s team sees that unregulated globalism, embraced by so many around the world, creates some valid opportunities, but is ripe for corruption while engendering stifling new layers of bureaucracy.”

What Trump’s team is seeking is to simplify “America’s gigantic set of government programs and policies and moving to make this nation a preferred partner for projects inside and outside our borders,” he suggested.

“Should President Trump continue to succeed, I believe the crony establishment loyalists who have prospered from 1989 through 2016 may continue their resistance, but with each passing day, more and more people around the world are beginning to admire steps that Donald Trump and his team are taking to reverse damaging policies and actions of the past,” Ortel emphasized.

Why the Clinton Foundation Probe May Have Repercussions for Global Elites

Meanwhile, Trump prepares for promoting his “America First” agenda at the World Economic Forum in the Swiss town of Davos on January 23-26. According to Adam Shaw of Fox News, observers believe that Davos presents “a sort of ‘globalist’ supranational approach unlike the nationalist mentality Trump campaigned on.”

Commenting on the event, Ortel asks a rhetorical question in one of his tweets: “I wonder how many people at Davos might be interested to learn that numerous governments and prestige foundations funded frauds at @ClintonFdn, while professional advisors covered these up?” 

​The analyst believes that there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed.

      As long as the FBI is in charge of this case, Clinton and all the others are very safe. Nothing to see here. That’s like having the fox guard the hen house.

      Trump might want to consider making some sort of statement at large that any country who knows about illegal activity in regards to the foundation and let’s doj know up front will not be sanctioned,
      but any goverment or entity exposed for malfeasance in the investigatory process will be pursued to the fullest extent of international law……… up to and including sanctions.
      Doj might start getting significant input from those outside the usa.
      You would Certainly find out who your friends are.
      Just a thought.

      It’s way past time to put them all in the spotlight. Once the truth is known the problems can be fixed. Speaking about problems related we have propaganda and censorship that has to end. Charges have to be made for everyone involved with passing a law making it legal to lie to the citizens.

      In 2016 the Netherlands / M Rutte gave 15 Million USD to the Clinton Foundation. I would really like to know why? The Dutch people were forced to accept (via a sneaky try out and consequent orders) the Lockheed M F35 fighter jets although it was declined. Horrible politicians and always unaccounted money flows. Hope to hear more.
