The U.S. Senate’s Committee on the Judiciary just sent shockwaves through Washington, D.C. when Chairman Chuck Grassley announced a new investigation into Hillary Clinton.
This involves looking into details as to why Clinton thwarted a Bangladesh government corruption probe of Muhammad Yunus, a major donor for the Clinton Foundation and Clinton family friend.
This is the first time an investigation of Clinton’s corrupt tenure as Secretary of State, America’s top diplomat, will be investigated during President Donald Trump’s administration.
There is extensive evidence that Clinton pressured Prime Minister Sheik Hasina and her son Sajeeb Wazeb to drop the investigation of Yunus and Grameen Bank. At the time, Yunus was the managing director of that state-run bank.
This is bad news for Hillary Clinton, who is on a book tour and doesn’t seem to expect criminal charges anytime soon:
In a June 1, 2017, letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Grassley repeated TheDCNF charge that Clinton threatened Wazed with an IRS tax audit if his mother did not back away from the corruption probe. Wazed has lived in the U.S. for 17 years.
“If the Secretary of State used her position to intervene in an independent investigation by a sovereign government simply because of a personal and financial relationship stemming from the Clinton Foundation rather than the legitimate foreign policy interests of the United States, then that would be unacceptable,” Grassley told Tillerson.
“Co-mingling her official position as Secretary of State with her family foundation would be similarly inappropriate. It is vital to determine whether the State Department had any role in the threat of an IRS audit against the son of the Prime Minister in retaliation for this investigation,” Grassley continued.
Grassley described how U.S. ambassadors James Moriarty and Dan Mozena, as well as Jon Danilowica, the Deputy Chief of Mission, met with Wazed in the U.S. Embassy in Dhaka, Bangladesh’s capital, on numerous occasions while the corruption investigation was underway. All three are career diplomats.
Stunningly, USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah also met with Wazed, and that agency awarded millions to Yunus organizations and allied groups. The State Department oversees all USAID programs around the world.
This is explicit pay-to-play corruption, and another reminder that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sold her agency’s powers to the highest bidder:
Clinton’s support for Yunus dates to former President Bill Clinton’s years as Arkansas governor. Both Clintons became micro-credit loan advocates and enthusiastic backers of Yunus, who invented the lending scheme. Bill Clinton reportedly lobbied the Nobel Prize Committee on behalf of Yunus. The committee awarded him the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize.
From 2008 onward, Yunus was a featured speaker at the glitzy Clinton Global Initiative’s annual meeting. He donated between $100,000-$250,000 to CGI and $25,000-$50,000 to the Clinton Foundation, according to the Clinton Foundation website.
Wazed told TheDCNF it was “astounding and mind boggling” to him that between 2010 and 2012 senior State Department officials repeatedly pressured him to influence his mother to drop the Grameen Bank investigation.
“They threatened me with the possibility of an audit by the Internal Revenue Service,” Wazed said. “They would say over and over again, ‘Yunus has powerful friends’ and we all knew they were talking of Secretary Clinton. Everybody knew it was Mrs. Clinton.”
Grassley noted in his letter to Tillerson that Wazed recounted for Senate investigators “two conversations with then-Deputy Chief of Mission to Bangladesh Jon Danilowicz during which Danilowicz mentioned that Wazed may be audited by the IRS if he failed to use his influence to get his mother to drop the investigation into Yunus.”
Senator Grassley had been complaining about these issues since 2016 to former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, but she would not take action, especially during the presidential campaign.
This may be the beginning of the end for Hillary Clinton. This is long overdue.
