There is a federal law in the United States that states foreign governments who receive US assistance and are not transparent in how they spend that money they will not be able to get US Foreign Assistance anymore. But there is a way around that law called a waiver and the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton granted that waiver. Nigeria was receiving hundreds of millions of dollars in US Foreign Assistance those who were not transparent of course they’ve received exemptions from Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State.
Bill Clinton at this same time received $1.4 million dollars for two speeches in Nigeria by a businessman Nduka Obaibgena who happens to be close to the President of that Country. This was an enormous pay day for Bill Clinton.
One of the pinnacles of power in that country is a gentleman by the name Gilbert Chagoury who has committed one billion dollars to the Clinton Global Initiative. He is also friends with Marc Rich who is a billionaire who was on the FBI’s most wanted list, who was suddenly and surprisingly pardoned by Bill Clinton in 2001. Marc Rich also traded oil with Ayatollah Khomeini in Iran, at the same time the Ayatollah was holding 50 Americans as hostages. Marc Rich also had a long history of busting UN sanctions by trading oil with a part-time regime in South Africa and a whole host of other nefarious governments.
Gilbert Chagoury, the highest Clinton donor was business partners with Marc Rich. He’s also extremely close to the Pope. Together they sopped up oil assets in Nigeria and sold them on the oil market for the benefit of a corrupt individual who was leading Nigeria at the time, named General Sani Abacha. Abacha smuggled by some estimates four to eight billion dollars out of the country and put them in European bank accounts. Gilbert Chagoury was indicted and convicted in Europe. Gilbert Chagoury was charged with aiding and abetting a criminal enterprise and money laundering charges. The very same charges that would apply to the Clintons. The suffering people of Nigeria who see their leadership getting a pass from the United States. The elites in these countries were getting rich, the Clintons were getting rich, and the money never trickles down to the people of Nigeria who needed so badly. Sadly this theme of resources not trickling down to the most in need is a common theme when it comes to the Clintons.
“In the email, Douglas Band who worked at the Clinton Foundation notes that Gilbert Chagoury is a “key guy there [Lebanon] and to us,” and insists Clinton aide and Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin call Ambassador Jeffrey Feltman to connect him with Gilbert Chagoury.”
“Gilbert Chagoury is a close friend of former President Bill Clinton and has appeared on the Clinton Foundation donor list as a $1 million to $5 million contributor. He’s also pledged $1 billion to the Clinton Global Initiative. Chagoury was convicted in 2000 in Switzerland for money laundering. He cut a deal and agreed to repay $66 million to the Nigerian government.”
“In another email from April 2009, Douglas Band who works for the Clinton Foundation seems to pressure Clinton’s former aides Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin into hiring a foundation associate.”
“In the email, Douglas Band writes it’s “important to take care of [name redacted].”
“Huma Abedin responds, telling Douglas Band, “Personnel has been sending him options.” 08.25.2016.247
