I have just finished reading dozens and dozens of stories about the massive corruption within the Clinton Foundation. As I perused each article and each story, I was amazed about how many things I had not heard anything about from our fabulous media. So, that said, I hardly knew where to start….I just dove in. There are over 200,000 donors to the Clinton Foundation. I simply don’t even know if the FBI could investigate all of them and all the connections. It is an impossible task. So where to start? Many of the donors are foreign nationals or foreign governments. To be honest, I just picked one toward the top of the list. By the way, the list starts with groups of donors giving more than $25 million, and moves down in $5 million increments. At the very top of the list is USAID and UNITAID, both of whom I will cover later. Also at the top are Bill Gates, Stephen Bing, Fred Eychaner, and Saudi Arabia. The guy I picked out, at random, to investigate was about 25th on the list, in the $5 million category. His name is Gilbert Chagoury. I had never heard of Mr. Chagoury….have you? Doubtful. Mr. Chagoury is the richest man in Nigeria and head of a diverse conglomerate called the Chagoury Group that he runs with his brother. Both were born and grew up in Nigeria but are Lebanese and Muslim. His background is one of death and tyranny. He was an advisor to the Nigerian military dictator, Sani Abacha. Abacha was a brutal tyrant in the 90s that suspended all government, the constitution and replaced governors with generals. He bilked Nigeria of millions, and killed or imprisoned his opponents. Chagoury was his money man. Chagoury was convicted of bribery and money laundering, for placing 300 million of Nigerian money into Swiss banks for Abacha. Chagoury never served jail time. AND…..he is a long time friend of Bill Clinton. From everything I could find out…this Chagoury fellow is a piece of crap, and ruthless. So why has he given millions to the Clinton Foundation? Turns out, this question has a fairly obvious answer. But as we will discover as we go through all this corruption, there will never be direct evidence or a so-called smoking gun. Common sense, together with patterns, are all we can hope to use and discover. The old saying is “If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s probably a duck!” Back to Chagoury and why he donated millions. It has to do with what most would call an obscure group of terrorists, named Boko Haram. But why is Boko Haram so obscure? To date they have killed more Christians than ISIS and Al-Qaida…..reportedly some 10,000 people have been killed by Boko Haram. This was the group that over ran a girls school and kidnapped nearly 300 young girls, which were never heard from again. You might remember the sign Michelle Obama held up on Twitter, “Bring back our girls”. Such feigned outrage! But guess what? Boko Haram was never designated to be a terrorist organization. You see, a terrorist organization designation comes with consequences. Any one found to provide support is guilty of an international crime….things get confiscated…..it’s very bad for business, if you are helping them. Chagoury owns the two largest hotels in Nigeria and relies on tourism for some of his success. He also owns half of all Nigerian construction. Until November of 2013, Boko Haram was never designated a terrorist organization, even though the FBI, CIA, Justice Department, and the Pentagon all urged Mrs. Clinton to do so. Terrorist designations must come from the state department. Hillary Clinton left her state department position in February and in November Boko Haram received the terrorist designation, years after thousand had been killed. So….is it a quid pro quo? There is no direct evidence….at this point there is no proof, but as we go through this corruption, you will see the same pattern emerge……somebody gives money to the Foundation and then finds themselves benefitting from an American action or decision.
