(Jun. 15, 2015) — The below-listed article is an excellent explanation of why a foreign charity was unethically formed in Canada by the Clintons and Frank Giustra. It describes how mega-millions in dollars in gifts from foreign oligarchs and foreign governments were funneled into the Clintons’ Canadian charity. The Clintons said they were taking advantage of Canadian law, which they alleged prevented disclosure of who donated funds to the Clinton Canadian charity (that is absolutely untrue). The Clintons then bundled the separate donations from over 1100 foreign sources and made many separate massive donations to their Foundation without documenting who made the individual donations that they bundled together (that is a classic foreign money-laundering operation).
When Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State, the State Department granted favors to foreign entities, foreign oligarchs, foreign governments, and foreign corporations; coincidentally, many of those foreign entities were paying high-dollar speaking fees directly to the Clinton Foundation for speeches by Bill Clinton (as high as $500,000 for a one-hour speech). How those speaking fees were specifically tied to favors granted to those entities is explained in detail in the recently-published book entitled “Clinton Cash” by Peter Schweizer, where he also details Hillary’s “influence peddling” in foreign capitals to benefit the Clinton Foundation during the period when she was Secretary of State.
In recent years, experts have reported that only 10% of the funds received by the Clinton Foundation were then donated to help charities; much of the balance of the tax-free money went to enrich the Clintons. Much of those donated funds were used to pay generous salaries to untold numbers of staffers who will most probably work for the Clinton For President Campaign Organization (a violation of FEC Regulations). The Clinton Foundation also used those funds to cover the cost of lavish travel expenses to benefit Hillary and Bill Clinton. The Clinton Foundation found ways to enrich the Clintons with millions of dollars from the foreign donations received by the Clinton Canadian charity. Specific details of how the illegal money-laundering was conducted, then covered up, is revealed in “Clinton Cash.”
The Clintons’ partner in their Canadian charity is Frank Giustra. Giustra was the central figure in the formation of Uranium One, the Canadian company that somehow acquired one-half of all the uranium assets in the United States. Giustra then sold the US uranium assets he controlled (one-half of all the uranium in the US) to an organization controlled by Russia and Putin. That transaction could never have gone through without the approval of the US State Department when Hillary was Secretary of State, or without the approval of the occupant in the Oval Office.
Ask yourself if President Ronald Reagan would have approved the sale of one-half of all the uranium assets in the United States to Russia. No matter how you cut it, approving that transaction was a “treasonous act” approved by the occupant of the Oval Office and perpetrated by the Secretary of State. All American voters are asking what the Republican leadership in the House and Senate will do to reverse the sale of one-half of all the uranium in the United States to Russia, which is a critical national security asset. That action is a much more serious violation of the national security interest of the Republic than Obama’s repeated violations of federal immigration laws that have allowed hundreds of radical Islamic terrorists to flood across the wide-open southern border. Unfortunately, the Republican leadership in the House funded Obama’s illegal immigration policies through September 2015 in violation of federal immigration laws.)
The above explanation of how Hillary violated federal law designating money-laundering a crime also explains why she had to violate another federal law prohibiting destruction of all State Department emails. Hillary destroyed 30,000 emails she transmitted through her personal server located in the basement of her home while she was Secretary of State. If the reader is not convinced that this was a cleverly-structured way to get unidentified foreign money into the Clintons’ pockets, he or she should ask why the foreign entities didn’t simply funnel millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation instead of to the Clinton Canadian charity. Why did the foreign entities instead donate millions of dollars directly to the Clinton Canadian charity. Why didn’t those foreign entities donate their millions of dollars directly to the foreign organizations in need of charitable help? Why did the Clintons have to create a Clinton Canadian charity?
The Clinton Foundation has had access and the funds to hire the best accountants in the world; money would be no object to retain the most competent accounting staffs. Yet over the last five years, the Clintons failed to report which foreign entities made the estimated 1100+ donations to the Clinton Foundation through the Clinton Canadian charity. The Clinton Foundation never reported to the IRS how individual foreign donations were bundled in Canada and then brought into the United States as one major donation from the Canadian charity to the Clinton Foundation. The Clintons now say they just discovered “clerical errors” and are beginning the process of re-filing the past five years of federal income tax returns. The Clinton Foundation obviously violated federal Internal Revenue laws and codes. What would the IRS have done if a Republican candidate for President had violated federal laws and IRS regulations for five successive years as the Clinton Foundation did?
Foreign money even came in to the Clinton Foundation from 1100+ entities including from enemies of the United States such as companies dealing with Iran that are subject to sanctions; Putin, Russia, the C40 Cities Climate Change Leadership Group, the SEK Foundation For Climate Change, Singapore, the Swedish Postcode Lottery, Erickson Communications, Qatar, the Dutch Postcode Lottery, Saudi Arabia, the President of Kazakhstan, the Radcliff Foundation, the UAE, etc.; a very large percentage of those tax-free donations eventually ended up in the pockets of the Clintons, since the source of the donations had been structured to be untraceable back to the foreign donors—that is the textbook definition and the essence of “Money Laundering and Influence Peddling.”
Since the Clinton Foundation has been operating as a tax-exempt international money-laundering operation, aptly described in detail in “Clinton Cash,” it means that all American taxpayers, including you, are subsidizing it. Now the reader knows why Hillary’s destruction of 30,000 emails was a risk she was willing to take—one “smoking-gun” email may have resulted in a criminal prosecution against her for money-laundering—the Clintons brag there is no proof they did anything improper. If the FBI ever investigates the above-described money-laundering operation, an investigation being called for by many well-known talk radio show hosts, nationally-known TV news commentators, many Congressmen and hundreds of thousands of American voters, the Clinton Foundation would most probably be proved to be the largest political criminal enterprise in the 239-year history of the Republic.
