Bangladesh prime minister says Clinton personally pressured her to help foundation donor
by Sara A. Carter - May 11, 2017

While secretary of state, Hillary Clinton made a personal call to pressure Bangladesh’s prime minister to aid a donor to her husband’s charitable foundation despite federal ethics laws that require government officials to recuse themselves from matters that could impact their spouse’s business.

The Office of Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina confirmed to Circa that Mrs. Clinton called her office in March 2011 to demand that Dr. Muhammed Yunus, a 2006 Nobel Peace prize winner, be restored to his role as chairman of the country’s most famous microcredit bank, Grameen Bank. The bank’s nonprofit Grameen America, which Yunus chairs, has given between $100,000 and $250,000 to the Clinton Global Initiative. Grameen Research, which is chaired by Yunus, has donated between $25,000 and $50,000, according to the Clinton Foundation website.

And now more evidence begins to surface about the criminal aspect of her “Foundation”, not just the mere allegations and obvious connections we had been making. These are eye-witnesses and victims coming forward.

And was the unfairly dismissed Commey investigating this prior to his termination?

Relax. The one thing standing in the way of an honest investigation was only fired yesterday.

Ah yes the infamous Dr. Muhammed Yunus who pioneered micro loans at 25-30% till the impoverished Bangladeshi women are so far in debt that they sell a kidney into the transplant black market for 15-20K to clear the loan.

He is a ghoul and Hillary is his enabler. No wonder she stepped up to try and get the money flowing again.

Anyone else notice that Hillary has re-disappeared? Some “leader of the resistance”.

Wait a second, I learned in my international political economy class this year in college about how Mr. Yunus was a visionary for the people of Bangladesh and the Grameen Bank was a paragon for empowering the masses through micro-lending... and write a paper about it.

Damn it, I hate giving my money to those pricks.

And Barry thought he was a great guy as well...

More from the article:

"Yunus received the Medal of Freedom in 2009, from President Obama, for his work in aiding the 150 million poor families receive financing and business loans through his microfinance program at the bank.

“Almost every important person in Bangladesh congratulated me for receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom,” he states in the cable. “But the Prime Minister and her party said not a word about it, so you can see the depth of the problem,“ Yunus wrote in the cable to Verveer, who now is the executive director of the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security at Georgetown University. “I thought I should keep you briefed and let you figure out what to be done. Thanks for your help,” Yunus wrote to Verveer in 2009. Verveer could not be reached for comment."
