Disgraced Clinton Donor Got $13M In State Dept Grants Under Hillary, by Richard Pollack. Apparent textbook political corruption: Muhammad Yunus gives $300k to the Clinton Foundation (whose money the Clintons spend as they see fit), and Hillary Clinton’s Department of State awarded at least $13 million in grants, contracts and loans (of US Government money) to organizations controlled by or involving Yunus.
For more than 30 years, Yunus oversaw the distribution of Grameen Bank “micro-credit loans” to the poor to set up small businesses. He was eventually regarded as a saint among many anti-poverty activists.
Muhammad Yunus was ousted in 2011 as managing director of the Bangladesh-based Grameen Bank amid charges of corruption.
But he also got a big helping hand over the three decades Bill and Hillary Clinton actively promoted him and repeatedly showcased him as a celebrity figure at major Clinton Foundation functions.
The former president is credited with launching a personal lobbying campaign to press the Nobel Committee to award its peace prize to the Yunus. It did so in 2006.
The FBI is investigating:
Secretary Clinton’s mixing of official work with foundation donors is reportedly the focus of a second, less publicized FBI public corruption investigation of the former secretary of state. The more widely known FBI probe focuses on her use of a private email server located in her New York residence to conduct official government business.
In order to avoid future freedom-of-information requests to show her emails as Secretary of State, Hillary set up and used her own email server rather than use the Departmental mail server like a normal Secretary of State. Which then led to her leaking classified documents.
