Prominent Analyst Calls Clinton Foundation a Rogue Charity Fraud Network
by Stephen Lendman
I’ve written numerous times about the Clinton Foundation money-laundering, pay-to-play, self-enrichment racket masquerading as a charitable NGO.
Wall Street analyst, whistleblower, financial advisor Charles Ortel investigated Clinton Foundation shenanigans for months, saying information it releases publicly in “legally mandated filings do not add up, are frequently incorrect, and appear to be misleading.”
Based on his extensive investigative work, he calls the foundation “a rogue charity” operating fraudulently – “neither…organized nor operating lawfully from inception in October 1997 to date…”
“(I)t is a case study in international charity fraud of mammoth proportions” – with no independent trustees or independent financial auditing.
Ortel’s analysis shows the foundation from inception “was neither organized nor operated lawfully…beyond (a) reasonable doubt,” he stresses, the Clintons “exhibit(ing) gross negligence and reckless disregard in performance of their solemn duties.”
Federal, state and international laws prohibit operating so-called public charities for private gain. The Clinton Foundation systematically ignores its legal obligations.
“Overall I consider the (foundation) to be a charity fraud network,” Ortel explained. “I base this conclusion on my review of extensive data about its operations…”
“(D)irected by certain individuals and together with numerous affiliates,” the foundation’s “entire cumulative scale (counting inflows and outflows) approaches and may even exceed $100 billion,” from its 1997 inception during Bill’s second term as president to currently.
Ortel said he’ll continue releasing “new, in-depth detailed reports” on what he uncovers ahead. Plenty of incriminating evidence already exists to indict Bill, Hillary, Chelsea and their co-conspirators for criminal fraud under the RICO statute.
Each racketeering count is punishable by up to 20 years imprisonment if found guilty, along with forfeiture of ill-gotten gains, possible fines up to twice the amount of illegal profits, and seizure of assets gotten by racketeering.
The Clintons would also be vulnerable to civil suits by anyone harmed by their actions. RICO prosecutions are extremely serious, largely used against organized crime.
Clintons-style white collar criminality is much the same. Yet Obama’s Justice Department refuses to act responsibly for obvious reasons.
Bill and Hillary freely commit wrongdoing unaccountably. A likely third Clinton crime family co-presidency means elevating known felons to the nation’s highest office.
America is a gangster state, run by a criminal cabal, Bill and Hillary two among numerous other scam artists – benefitting hugely at the expense millions grievously harmed by their actions at home and abroad.
