Posted on 03/09/2015 11:26:52 AM PDT by Bigtigermike
In 2011 and 2012, the Obama administrations Securities and Exchange Commission levied large penalties against U.S. pharmaceutical companies for violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. These included Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, and Eli Lilly and Company. Among the charges was making donations to a charitable foundation in Poland.
That charitable foundation was run by an official with a regional health ministry who had the authority to make pharmaceutical purchasing decisions. The charitable foundation was legitimate and the foundations work was for a good cause. But the U.S. government found that the donation still had a corrupt purpose.
Again, the Clinton foundation says the money was given for a good cause earthquake relief in Haiti. At least when the shoe is on the other foot and U.S. companies are donating to foreign charities, the U.S. government does not hold the view that such donations toward charitable purposes can not be tainted.
SECs enforcement division, Andrew Ceresney, discussed the Eli Lilly and bribes disguised as charitable contributions:
As you might know, the FCPA prohibits giving anything of value to a foreign official to induce an official action to obtain or retain business, and we take an expansive view of the phrase anything of value. The phrase clearly captures more than just cash bribes, and Eli Lilly is not the only matter where we have brought an action arising out of charitable contributions.

Hillary would look sexy in an orange jump suit.
Hillary will love an all-female prison.
Money-laundering makes the money cleaner and that’s good for the Democrats.....er.....I mean the environment.
“Hillary would look sexy in an orange jump suit.”
True. They’ll have to get her out of that teflon pant suit first.
So that’s what they mean by “green energy”.
How many will claim they “did Not have text with that woman!”?
Is this some kind of joke?
Can anyone show me just one stinking law that would apply to a member of the Ruling Class in good standing ?? just 1 please
All this dough to the Clinton Global Initiative and Podesta’s Center for American Progress and the Clinton’s $300,000 for 45 minute speeches are pure graft and corruption.
Even though I know that the Obama regime is behind this, I still can’t help but ....bwahahahaha.
Tell me about it, we’ve been through this a billion times before with this bitch, nothing ever happens to her. She could behead 50 people on national TV Republicans would be “I didn’t see anything.”
And what about the esteemed board of directors?

I say she should share a cell with Bradley Manning.
This is done through out the mid-east, political types have some type of charitable entity that they can skim from. The Clinton’s have learned well.
Hitlery should share a cell with two 300 pound women from Haiti or Zambia.
Merely a few years into her “career” Chelsea has a $10m Manhattan condo.
Life in Clintonville is really good.
Let her have Martha Stewart’s old room.
H! Is the personification of allowable abomination of birth control and abortion. Without that half of our functional taxpayers and voters have to possibly face up to it the murder and the destruction of family, gender identity, loss of childhood innocence, not to mention getting their recreational lives interrupted
She is that and that’s all she is and it’s a lot
She is held way apart from the law by these forces. Trey Gowdy? Nope not even he can get to it
Hillary could shoot Mother Theresa on public television before 300,000,000 viewers and she would still be elected President. Look who has been elected as President TWICE!
It’s called INFLUENCE PEDDLING, it’s a crime.
