A Berlin court ordered Germanys far-right party to retract a false accusation that the country's environment ministry gave money to Hillary Clinton during her 2016 presidential campaign.
Georg Pazderski, leader of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AFD) party, was ordered to scrub its website of the accusation and issue a correction stating that the German ministry "paid no money whatsoever to support the election campaign of Hillary Clinton, Deutsche Welle news reported Monday.
Pazderski and his party claimed that millions that Germanys Federal Environment Ministry donated to the Clinton Foundations climate initiatives in Africa were really funneled into Clintons campaign.
The Clinton Foundation was funding projects in Africa as part of the International Climate Initiative, the newspaper reported.
Germanys Federal Environment Ministry first began donating to the initiative in 2013 years before Clinton kicked off her race for the White House.
The court ruled that the false accusations recklessly jeopardized public confidence" in the federal ministry by making the claim that a German agency had intervened in the U.S. election.
The populist AFD first made the accusation in a November 2016 press release that Pazderski wrote, Deutsche Well noted.
The environmental ministry won a court battle against AFD weeks after the claim went up but the now the group will have to issue a retraction.
You would be too if you had given millions to the biggest fraud ever.
Then I think that it might be true.
The Courts certainly are not reliable arbiters of what is true.
Ministry of “Truth”?
Isn’t this court order a threat to democracy?
Looks like the Kraut Courts are as corrupt as are ours! Just wonder if the Ninth Circuit Court here has “dialog” with Berlin?
“Germanys Federal Environment Ministry first began donating to the initiative in 2013 years before Clinton kicked off her race for the White House.”
Was there anyone, anywhere, in 2013 who did NOT know Hillary was running for president? I think not.
They shouldn’t retract anything. The court’s reasoning practically explains how money laundering works. Don’t they know about money laundering?
Shell game politics. The government pretends they weren’t buying influence.
Lousy crooks can stand exposure.
Hillary had been running for the White House since the first 1992 campaign where she was seated as co-president.
“the German ministry “paid no money whatsoever to support the election campaign of Hillary Clinton,”
According to offended bureaucrats: Every single pfenning was exactingly laundered through intermediaries. Do you think we are amatuers? Do you think that was the Clinton’s first day on the job, taking illegal contributions?
So it has been proven true.
The German government gave money to the Clintons, and the court admitted it was true.
