A former senior Peace Corps official agreed to cooperate with any law enforcement investigations surrounding a scheme that funneled millions of Department of State dollars to a nonprofit founded and run by former Secretary of State John Kerry’s daughter, recently published court documents show.

Warren “Buck” Buckingham agreed to cooperate as a condition of an agreement with the Washington, D.C., U.S. Attorney’s Office that would keep him from facing prosecution for a related illegal lobbying charge, court documents filed Thursday and made public Tuesday show.

Also as part of the agreement, Buckingham admitted to the charge that he lobbied his former Peace Corps colleagues to help his employer, Seed Global Health, secure a $6.4 million State Department-funded contract extension around September 2015.

Indict her. Let JFK figure it out.

Trump needs to sign an executive order that NO person in the executive branch can have any undeclared connection to or contact with a non-profit foundation. Any potential conflict should be reviewed by ethics counsel for that agency.

Enough is enough. There is NO way to reconcile the activities we have seen in the previous administration with the basic rules of ethics. This happened all over the place with the DOJ slush fund pushing money to social advocacy groups and community organizers, state using grants to fund anti-Netanyahu advertisements in the Israeli election, and the biggest one of all - the Clinton foundation and their incestuous relationship with the Podesta group who were lobbying on behalf of numerous foreign interests. This is craziness and the corruption is so blatant and undeniable that a kindergarten class could understand it.

He needs to do this immediately to send a message to his own staff and it would be a shot across the bow at the last.

It's time we stop all this nepotism and cronyism ....... greedy SOB's lying in wait for tax dollar handouts. No relatives, wives, friends should be allowed to get their hands on tax dollars.....or be given govt jobs. And that includes anybody on the staff of a gvt official.

=============================

This one will give you nightmares, people, counting up the endless line of Huma Abedin's Muslim cousins w/ their greedy Muslim hands in Hillary's State Dept cookie jar.

CONVICTED OF FRAUD ---This smirking Muslim creep is Huma's Muslim first cousin AKA "a serial swindler." Huma's Muslim cousin subsidized businesses w/ our tax dollars looted from Hillary's State Dept. He made six million tax dollars vanish.

ABEDIN EMAIL EXCERPT--“Thanks for getting in touch. Would love to arrange a meeting,” Muslim Huma Abedin replied in a June 23, 2009, email to her Muslim cousin Omar Amanat and Muslim Shamil Idriss, who heads New York-based Soliya Inc.

In May 2010, then-Secy Clinton helped Soliya get access to U.N. funding by making the U.S. a participant in a U.N. high-tech media initiative called the Alliance of Civilizations.

Then in October 2010, Hillary's State Department directly awarded Soliya $1.25 million for a media technology project. “Muslim Huma helped Muslim Omar make KIT appear more valuable because of its association with the Alliance of Civilizations, which was approved by Secy Hillary and funded in part by U.S. grants (tax dollars),” said an attorney familiar with the case.

“This helped Muslim Omar raise money for KIT, which he and his Muslim brother misappropriated for other purposes. Approximately $6 million tax dollars vanished.” Muslim Amanat took KIT Digital public in August 2009. At the time, Amanat, known as "a serial swindler,” was in personal bankruptcy and being sued by other investors. Despite his shady reputation, the Muslim still managed to gain special access to US government tax dollars thanks to his ties to his well-positioned Muslim cousin and his donations to the Clinton Foundation.

THE MONEY LAUNDRY Records show that Muslim Omar Amanat and several other Abedin Muslim family members and related Muslim charities have together donated as much as $1.2 million to the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative, as well as the Clinton Health Access Initiative.

After Omar Amanat, Abedin's Muslim cousin, personally contributed as much as $25,000 to the Clinton Foundation, the cousin was officially appointed to the Council on Foreign Relations during the time that Hillary Clinton was serving as US secretary of state.

Kerry once again exhibits his lack of intelligence.

He has to feel stupid getting pinched over a few million bucks while the Clinton's are over there siphoning up several hundred million bucks.

Another “non profit”. Bribery by any other name. I bet Kerry and Clinton and obama all have bribe money fro the Iranians.

Politics January 18, 2012 / 4:35 PM / 6 years ago

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Using a practice that made him eligible for large tax deductions, Mitt Romney gave the Mormon church substantial stock holdings that he obtained through his private equity firm, according to documents filed with the government and to Romney associates.

The tactic used by Romney to help meet his Mormon obligation of “tithing” - in which members donate 10 percent of their income to the church - is a common way for wealthy Americans to make large donations to charities, tax specialists say.

But against the backdrop of a Republican presidential campaign in which Romney is being pressured to reveal his tax returns and further details on his vast wealth, the donations shed light on the tax strategies of Romney and others at Bain Capital, the private equity firm he co-founded in 1984.

Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, is the early frontrunner in the state-by-state contest to pick a Republican candidate to run against Democrat Barack Obama in the November presidential election.

Filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission indicate that Romney and others at Bain have given “appreciated stock” to the church and various charities, which gives the donors potentially generous tax benefits.

The SEC records, which cover a period from 1997 to 2008, reveal several donations worth millions of dollars of stock in Bain deals to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

[Appreciated Stock....I read some time ago that Mitt Romney had a multi-million Roth account....made from putting in startup and founders stock in companies that subsequently went public....nice work if you can get it.]

Here’s plenty more of Huma cashing in.

BACKSTORY In 2013, news broke that Secy Hillary gave her aide, Huma Abedin, a special
US govt employee status
.That gave Abedin a financial windfall, allowing her to simultaneously

<><>cash US govt checks on the US govt payroll
<><> be paid by the Clinton Foundation, and,
<><> work for Teneo, founded by former Clinton White House adviser, Doug Band.
<><> establish a side consulting business.
<><> engage in activities to benefit her "Zain Endeavors" group.

This became news fodder, b/c Abedin previously had not disclosed her unusual employment status. Abedin had publicly said she stepped back from government work and became a “contractor” so she could be with her family and her newborn son, Zain.

Critics have questioned whether she had a conflict of interest while working as a US govt employee at State Dept and at Teneo-—said to be the pricey “toll booth” to get access to the Clintons.

A shady aspect of Huma Abdein’s unusual (and lucrative) State Department career......... she founded a private company called “Zain Endeavors” eleven days before she left Hillary’s employ. Zain Endeavors is named for her infant son).......

Abedin saying she was a “contractor” is also suspect.....b/c after Hillary left, the State Dept said
$6 BILLION dollars went missing from the contractors fund. This has yet to be investigated.
