Skip to comments.Clinton Foundation donor received $13 million from State Department

The State Department doled out $13 million in grants for longtime friend and Clinton Foundation donor Muhammad Yunus during Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state, according to federal records.
The grants were provided in 18 separate transactions from the U.S. Agency for International Development to the Bangladesh-based Grameen bank, according to a Sunday evening report from the Daily Caller News Foundation, for which Yunus served as a founding board member. Groups associated with Yunus through business relationships received an additional $11 million.
Yunus oversaw the distribution of microcredit loans to impoverished borrowers for the bank for over 30 years. Thanks in part to years of lobbying by former president Bill Clinton, Yunus received a Nobel Peace Prize in 2006 for what the committee called "efforts through microcredit to create economic and social development from below."
When the Bangladeshi government in 2011 began investigating the bank over charges that funds had been mismanaged, Hillary Clinton intervened as secretary of state, contacting the country's officials directly in addition to holding a news conference in the U.S. to express "concern and hope" that the bank would "continue to function productively." Yunus was nonetheless forced out of his position later that year by his government.

Surprise, surprise, surprise! Still think it is just a coincidence that a “donation” to the Clinton slush fund netted them a $13 million payout?
And nothing will happen.
Zero, zilch, nada.
Hillary the Crook strikes again.
USAID is well-known as a CIA front so there is definitely more to this than meets the eye.
would make a nice campaign ad for someone.
It’s time for Trump to turn his heavy artillery on Clinton, while at the same time reminding everyone that there is no way Cruz can get to 1237.
BINGO!!!!! For every shot he’s given the whore-pig, he’s given republicans 1000 shots. I keep waiting and waiting and waiting for him to unleash on her. Now is the time.
Was it Trump?
THE BIGGEST SCAM OF ALL? The IRS has affirmed that the biggest IRS fraud involving tax evasion and money laundering...is one foundation writing a check to another foundation....how they launder tax-free dollars for themselves.
The recipient foundation takes a cut, then banks the bulk offshore for the donor's use later.....all tax-free.
NOTE The legal culpability of a tax-exempt foundation/charity consists of soliciting and taking money.... and showing how they spend it.
So if the Clinton Foundation and Yunus' foundation raised money using the US mails/computers... and cited a specific "do-good cause" but used the donated money elsewhere, that is considered mail fraud.

UPDATE When Hilary exited...the State Dept announced there was $6 BILLION missing from its contractor fund. That has yet to be investigated.
WHO ARE THE CLINTONS BEHOLDEN TO?
.....an anonymous attendee at one of Hillarys mega-buck Goldman Sachs speeches, told Politico that releasing her remarks would bury her against Sanders. It really makes her look like an ally of the firm. Rather than the anti-Wall Street crusader Hillary claims to be today, another person in the audience said, She sounded more like a Goldman Sachs managing director....
After a cursory reference to Benghazi, then-Secy of State Clintons telephone call with then-Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohamed AmAmr made a curious reference to what the former secretary referred to as a very successful investment visit led by my deputy Tom Nides, and, on the very day they left, this series of Benghazi incidents began to unfold.
According to the Washington Post, Nides, who was Hillary's deputy secretary for management and resources at the State Department, was at the same time responsible for communications with donors to the Clinton Foundation.
Nides was also involved in the scandal involving Clintons efforts to provide special access to State Department officials for hedge fund clients of her son-in-law, Marc Mezvinsky.
Hillary made friends w/ Wall Street when she was in the US Senate.
Then-US Sens Clinton and Corzine. Corzine was fresh out of Goldman Sachs executive suite. Corzine came from Wall Street to Capitol Hill. Then back to Wall Street to head a company that hired Bill Clinton @ $50,000 per month, AND also misplaced $1.3 Billion investor dollars.
Goldman Sachs top echelon are nuts for Hillary. The G/S biggies "invested" in Hillary's SIL's hedge fund. SIL's cockamamie investing turned the fund into an economic disaster according to the WSJ.
THE CLINTON CORZINE CONNECTION: The NY Post reported Dec 2011 that Teneo was advising MF Global, the doomed international brokerage firm headed by former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine (and ex-US Senator). The firm paid Teneo an eye-popping $125,000 a month as it was imploding and losing millions for its investors. Bill Clinton was also pocketing at MF Global--- an astounding $50,000 per month.
EXHIBIT ONE Corzine was fresh out of Goldman Sachs executive suite, buying his NJ Senate seat office for $65 million; then buying the NJ governorship. Out of office, he ran a hedge fund where $1.5 B went missing....its advisor Teneo was connected to both Bill Clinton and then-Secy of State Hillary's top aide Huma Abedin.
EXHIBIT TWO When Chelsea Clinton's husband started a hedge fund, he gained access to investors who had ties to the Clintons and to Goldman Sachs. Back in 2011, Mezvinsky, now 37, and two former Goldman Sachs'ers Bennett Grau and Mark Mallon began raising money for Mezvinsky's Eaglevale Partners LP hedge fund.
Some of Mezvinsky's "investors" included Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein. Blankfein, a slavish Democrat supporter, said he had "always been a fan of Hillary Clinton."
The WSJ reported extensively on the hedge fund's underperformance since its inception and Mezvinsky's mediocre investing and strategizing.
THIS JUST IN---Bloomberg is reporting G/S's CEO Lloyd Blankfien is a newly-minted billionaire---and also has his own Foundation.
Mmmmmmmm....the sound of wire-transfers is almost palpable.
The IRS says the biggest tax evasion fraud is one Foundation writing a check to another Foundation. The check receiver takes a cut, then wire-transfers the bulk to an offshore bank for the check-writer's use later ----- the way these "humanitarians" skim off-tax free dollars for themselves. ////// FBI: among the most ethically challenged Hillary emails: Selling Access
MEMO TO THE FBI: The head of a Canadian company with an enormous interest in Africa....in the Congo's mining and oil sector.....Lukas Lundin of Lundin Mining.....announced a $100 million donation to the Clinton Foundation on the heels of Hillary/s first presidential campaign....as she became Secy of State.
After the Congolese government attempted to regain control of its own mines, the State Department intervened on behalf of Lundin Mining and another mining company, Freeport Mines, also a Clinton foundation donor.
A round of talks in 2010, thought to be aided by the Clinton State Department, concluded with the pair of well- connected companies (Clinton Foundation donors) retaining their stakes in the mines and with the Congolese government being shut out of its own resources.

THE STATE DEPT PAPER TRAIL---- Hillary/s State Dept Aide Shared Classified state Dept Information With Clinton Foundation 2012 Email Shows Aide Cheryl Mills sent information marked confidential to Clinton Foundation
By Alana Goodman, Free Beacon September 28, 2015
A key aide of Hillary Clinton emailed classified information about the government in Congo to a staffer at the Clinton Foundation in 2012, according to a copy of the correspondence obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
Cheryl Mills, Clinton/s chief of staff at the State Department, sent the email to the Clinton Foundations foreign policy director, Amitabh Desai, on July 12, 2012.
The message, which was originally obtained by the group Citizens United through a public records request, is partially redacted because it includes foreign government information that has been classified Confidential by the State Department......but was not marked classified by the State Department until this past summer, intelligence sources tell the Free Beacon that it would have been classified at the time Mills sent it because foreign government information is considered classified from inception.
The message could add to concerns from congressional and FBI investigators about whether former Secretary Clinton and her aides mishandled classified information while at the State Department.
About half of the forwarded message was redacted due to its classified nature before the State Department released it to Citizens United last month. Although it is not clear what the redacted section includes, the State Department said in a court motion filed last week that it concerns both foreign government information and critical aspects of U.S. foreign relations, including U.S. foreign activities carried out by officials of the U.S. Government.
The State Department added that the disclosure of this information has the potential to damage and inject friction into our bilateral relationship with African countries whose cooperation is important to U.S. national security.
The Clinton Foundation and the State Department did not respond to request for comment about the email, or say whether Desai...a non-government employee who has worked at the foundation since 2007....would have been authorized to view Confidential information.

This fellow’s microloan project has actually done a world of good for desperately impoverished people in third-world countries. Because it’s (eek....gasp!) CAPITALISM!
Great Deal for them, eh?
Big difference in a Loan than a grant!
$100k to Clinton but to politicians, small $1k (like Dodd). Sounds off in more ways than one. Not only the $100k but you know $1k isn’t going to buy a politician.
Chameleon. Plain and simply apparent. :)
What we got here may be a full blown case of Sybil.
Diversity panel anyone?
