The mainstream media are too busy parsing Rudy Giuliani’s speeches or “fact checking” Donald Trump’s economic policies to investigate the Clinton Foundation.
Incredibly, the unsavory stories about that “charity” keep rising to the surface anyhow. At least Fox News has decided this trail of corruption is worth following:
Shortly after Hillary Clinton left the Obama administration, the State Department quietly took steps to purchase real estate in Nigeria from a firm whose parent company is owned by a major donor to the Clinton Foundation, records obtained by Fox News show. (…)
Overtures to real estate developers from State Department officials scouting locations for embassies, consulates and other diplomatic facilities would ordinarily not arouse interest. But in this case, the budding transaction – never completed, the department now says – raised eyebrows because Ronald Chagoury is the brother and business partner, in the Chagoury Group, of Gilbert Chagoury, a Lebanese-born businessman whom federal records show has donated between $1 and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation.
Indeed, Gilbert Chagoury’s friendship with the Clintons can be traced back to the Clinton presidency. In the mid-1990s, Chagoury donated nearly $500,000 to a voter-registration drive designed to help Democratic candidates, attended a White House dinner for premium donors, and met with high-ranking officials in the Clinton White House – including Susan Rice, now President Obama’s national security adviser – who were shaping U.S. policy toward Nigeria.
There’s more, of course. It’s a sad commentary that there are still millions of Americans eager to elect Hillary Clinton in November. Old fashioned concepts like “cronyism” and “corruption” apparently aren’t as important as dubious distinctions like voting for “the first woman president” (as long as she’s a Democrat.)
