Want to know why Hillary's emails are so important?
While the front pages of many major newspapers (here's the Washington Post cover) are all about trashing Trump with trumped up allegations, one of the most massive corruption scandals of all time continues to slide largely unnoticed under the radar.
Billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars for disaster relief in Haiti were siphoned off by Clinton cronies who made contributions to the Clinton Foundation then got special treatment from the U.S. State Department which awarded contracts for disaster relief. Many of the projects for Haiti were never completed, leaving Haitians just as bad off as before.
The direct connection between Clinton crony corruption and the State Department run by Hillary is documented in emails which have come to light. Now you know why Hillary went to such extraordinary measures to delete as many as she could. ABC News has the story, along with the following excerpts from State Department emails showing the clear connection:
Earlier in the year the New York Times wrote a story about the corruption in Haiti and how many of it's people blame the Clintons for the lack of any progress despite billions that were promised. Tony Jeanthenor, 55, a member of the Miami-based Haitian human rights group Veye-Yo, said "Nothing good for Haiti can come out of Hillary because of her past behavior."
Haitians have protested outside the Clinton Foundation offices in New York with only local news coverage.
Haitians on social media share their disgust:
Dinesh D'Souza at National Review writes:
I don’t blame the Haitians for falling for it; Bill is one of the world’s greatest story-tellers. He has fooled people far more sophisticated than the poor Haitians. Over time, however, the Haitians wised up. Whatever their initial expectations, many saw that much of the aid money seems never to have reached its destination; rather, it disappeared along the way.D'Souza documents how money awarded for housing and schools disappeared with little or nothing to show for it. Yet the Clintons and their friends got rich.
Where did it go? It did not escape the attention of the Haitians that Bill Clinton was the designated UN representative for aid to Haiti. Following the earthquake, Bill Clinton had with media fanfare established the Haiti Reconstruction Fund. Meanwhile, his wife Hillary was the United States secretary of state. She was in charge of U.S. aid allocated to Haiti. Together the Clintons were the two most powerful people who controlled the flow of funds to Haiti from around the world. Haitian deals appeared to be a quid pro quo for filling the coffers of the Clintons.
The Haitian protesters noticed an interesting pattern involving the Clintons and the designation of how aid funds were used. They observed that a number of companies that received contracts in Haiti happened to be entities that made large donations to the Clinton Foundation. The Haitian contracts appeared less tailored to the needs of Haiti than to the needs of the companies that were performing the services. In sum, Haitian deals appeared to be a quid pro quo for filling the coffers of the Clintons.
The Clintons also funneled $10 million in federal loans to a firm called InnoVida, headed by Clinton donor Claudio Osorio. Osorio had loaded its board with Clinton cronies, including longtime Clinton ally General Wesley Clark; Hillary’s 2008 finance director Jonathan Mantz; and Democratic fundraiser Chris Korge who has helped raise millions for the Clintons.The poorest of the poor, and black to boot, get shafted by the Clintons and their rich friends who stole millions from U.S. taxpayers. Wouldn't you think THAT story should be on the front page?
Normally the loan approval process takes months or even years. But in this case, a government official wrote, “Former President Bill Clinton is personally in contact with the company to organize its logistical and support needs. And as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton has made available State Department resources to assist with logistical arrangements.”
InnoVida had not even provided an independently audited financial report that is normally a requirement for such applications. This requirement, however, was waived. On the basis of the Clinton connection, InnoVida’s application was fast-tracked and approved in two weeks.
The company, however, defaulted on the loan and never built any houses. An investigation revealed that Osorio had diverted company funds to pay for his Miami Beach mansion, his Maserati, and his Colorado ski chalet. He pleaded guilty to wire fraud and money laundering in 2013, and is currently serving a twelve-year prison term on fraud charges related to the loan
