U.S. Will Encourage Foreign Governments to Investigate Clinton Foundation


The New York Post reports that the Trump administration will pressure its ambassadors to bring up the Clinton Foundation with foreign governments — and suggest they probe its ­financial shenanigans:


“Haiti and Colombia will be key diplomatic posts for this ­because of all the money ­involved,” said the source.

In Haiti, recently leaked ­e-mails indicate “Friends of Bill” Clinton may have been given priority from the State Department as it prepared to spend some $10 billion in aid after a devastating earthquake hit the country in 2010. The State Department has denied any special treatment.

In Colombia, Canadian mining magnate Frank Giustra pledged $100 million to the foundation in 2005 and later benefited from the foundation’s philanthropic work in the country, where he acquired large parcels of land and set up an oil business, ­according to watchdog groups.

The Clinton Foundation, headed by Donna Shalala, the former health and human services secretary in the Clinton administration, has received millions from dozens of foreign governments including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the Netherlands, Canada, Sweden and Ireland

France isn’t waiting for the Trump administration. According to the Post, after Hillary lost the presidential election, French officials began following a trail of tens of millions in government money that ended up in Clinton Foundation coffers.


Clinton Foundation donations dropped by 37 percent to $108 million last year.

President-elect Donald Trump said last week that he would not order an investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server or her pay to play schemes in which millions of dollars were “donated” to the Clinton Foundation in order to obtain an audience with Secretary of State Clinton.

Apparently Trump’s statement didn’t preclude such backdoor moves to investigate the infamous foundation.

Could the decision to have U.S. ambassadors pressure countries to investigate the Clinton Inc. Foundation have anything to do with Hillary joining Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein’s Wisconsin presidential recount and planned recounts in Michigan and Pennsylvania?
