Skip to comments.Hillary Emails Shed Light on Clintons’ Role in Loan to Fraudster
Posted on 09/03/2015 11:36:53 AM PDT by jazusamo
The latest batch of publicly-released State Department emails provide more evidence that a $10 million loan from the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) to Clinton Foundation donor Claudio Osorio was made as a result of pressure from Bill and Hillary Clinton.
The loan to a company named InnoVida, owned by Osorio, was supposed to be for building houses in earthquake-ravaged Haiti, but Osorio used the money to finance a lavish lifestyle. Osorio is currently in prison for fraud. OPIC is an independent agency but submits its budget through the State Department.
The Clintons efforts to push the OPIC loan were uncovered by NLPCs Ken Boehm and Tom Anderson. They spent many hours at both the state and federal courthouses in Miami going through documents related to the InnoVida case.
The emails also illustrate how close Clinton supporters like Jonathan Mantz have run a lucrative influence-peddling operation. Mantz was Hillarys 2008 finance director, and today plays a key role in Priorities USA, a super PAC supporting Hillary. Mantz was a lobbyist for InnoVida. Alana Goodman of the Washington Free Beacon today details Mantz' campaign on behalf of InnoVida, as revealed through the emails.
Clintons Pushed OPIC Loan to Fraudster Claudio Osorio
Maybe Clinton gave that guy money so he could launder some back to their private stash without the foundation? You never know, we know the Dems use Union due to funnel money to the Democrat party.
“Maybe Clinton gave that guy money so he could launder some back to their private stash without the foundation? “
Certain, and done repeatedly with many other crooks.
Yep, I’d bet the farm the Clinton’s profited from this crook, they don’t anything for nothing.
The ongoing criminal enterprise of hillary and bill clinton.
Venezuelan Osorio fundraised for Hillary and supported the Clinton Global Initiative. Osorio got nailed b/c he falsified federal applications and bilked US taxpayers to score a loan of $10M tax dollars to build homes in earthquake-ravaged Haiti. Osorio was convicted of financial fraud, using federal humanitarian assistance for personal benefit, and got 12 years in federal prison.
BGRND The outstanding cable TV anthology show “American Greed” did a segment on Venezuelan fraudster (now jailed) Claudio Osorio. Osorio, a Venezuelan schemer, organized high profile fundraisers, and was in thick w/ Democrats Obama, Hillary and Bill-——and with Jeb Bush.
Osorio donated some $80,000 to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, according to Federal Electoral Commission records. Osorio also donated mega-bucks to the Clinton Global Initiative Foundation.
Osorio’s shell company, Innovida, submitted falsified documents and received $3.5 million in loans from the US govt——the US Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) supposedly to build homes in Haiti after the catastrophic earthquake.
In September 2011, OPIC began questioning Innovida’s “negative operating cash flow.”
A court appointed receiver in charge of investigating Innovida’s finances indicated that “$37.5 million in funds had been moved offshore, but he had so far been unable to find out what happened to the money.”
Osorio has used his constitutional privilege of invoking the fifth amendment right against self-incrimination when asked if company funds had been used to pay personal expenses.
Osorio was indicted on two counts of wire fraud and one count of major fraud, amongst other charges. Federal prosecutors said Osorio defrauded investors from 2007-10, exaggerating the company’s finances and pocketing millions of dollars to fund a lavish lifestyle.
The SEC claimed that Osorio had illegally used investor money to pay for a Miami Beach mansion, a Maserati car and a Colorado mountain retreat home.
AM/GREED also aired a pic of Jeb Bush sizing-up Osorio’s pre-fab housing project for Haitian refugees (which turned out to be a scam).
The Mafia is nothing compared to the Clinton Crime Family.
The whole Rat party is a criminal enterprise. Obama and others new exactly what they were peddling and so does the MSM. They all also knew about her private email. They all knew about the IRS anti teapArty efforts.
Thanks...Had forgotten about that, the Clinton’s were in tight with Haiti crooks.
Jeb is such a conservative (socialist)
One wonders how much of the $10 million ended up in Hillary’s! personal checkbook...
Just follow the money with this Fabian Socialist Harridan! IT’S NOT THAT HARD! WIRE FRAUD!
Yeesh! Do I have to do ALL the Heavy Lifting around here? ;)
LOL! That’s awesome! :)
Exclusive: Former Clinton aide has rebuffed FBI and State Department investigators in email probe
