The Clinton Foundation is involved in yet another scandal as the Prime Minister of Bangladesh has confirmed that she was contacted by then-Secretary of State Clinton to drop a government lawsuit against a Dr. Mohammed Yunus, as well as allow him to remain in his position at one of the country's largest banks, despite her actions being unlawful. As it turns out, Dr. Yunus was a very prolific donor to the Clinton Foundation and this was a bit more than a coincidence.
“Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton telephoned Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in March 2011 insisting her not to remove Dr. Muhammad Yunus from the post of Managing Director of Grameen Bank,” Deputy Press Secretary Md Nazrul Islam told Circa in an email.
Islam said the prime minister informed Mrs. Clinton that according to Grameen Bank rules and regulations, nobody can hold the position of the Managing Director of Grameen Bank after the age of 60. He was 70 at the time of his removal and had wrangled for months to no avail with the prime minister over his removal.
Mrs. Clinton’s newly disclosed call to reinstate Dr. Yunus marks one of the most direct involvements in an official government matter that impacted one of her husband’s donors.
Establishmentariat member and former Chief White House Ethics Lawyer for President George W. Bush, Richard Painter, made sure that we, the knowledge-deprived public, understood that despite the fact that this activity on Hillary's behalf was outright illegally, that there was nothing we could do about it.
It may trigger new calls for a criminal investigation into the foundation’s activities but “it’s not likely that anything would come of it,” said Painter.
“People in public life shouldn’t be raising money from anybody, anywhere, or for anything,” Painter said. “But until we fix the campaign finance system this is the way it’s going to be.”
Painter, who supported Clinton during her campaign for president, said that there is little if any evidence that she crossed any legal lines regarding the Clinton Foundation. He said favoritism to somebody giving money to campaign is often and frequent in Washington D.C. politics and “if that were the case we’d be investigating the entire U.S. Congress.
So, let me get this straight, Mr. Painter…Hillary is a criminal and committed all kinds of fraud (and good luck trying to charge her for it) but YOU VOTED FOR HER!
The Bangladesh Prime Minister's son, Sajeeb Wazed, confirmed his mother's assertions.
Wazed…a permanent U.S. resident, says that between 2010 and 2012, he was repeatedly pressured to ask his mother to end the investigation into Mr. Yunus, and threatened with an audit or other action if he did not comply.
Just one more reason why America dodged a huge Arkansas bullet when we voted to elect Donald J. Trump.
