Hillary did two favors for Morocco, and then Clinton Foundation collected $28 million from them
It’s pay-to-play government, period. No doubt, all the principals will claim they were independently acting in the best interest of the Americna people, but the events speak to an inner logic. Richard Pollock of the Daily Caller News Foundation has the story laid out, explaining that a U.S. industry was crippled, and its Moroccan competitor coughs up millions, in the first favor:
Hillary Clinton did two huge favors for Morocco during her tenure as secretary of state while the Clinton Foundation accepted up to $28 million in donations from the country’s ruler, King Mohammed VI, according to new information obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group.
Clinton and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) chief Lisa Jackson tried to shut down the Florida-based Mosaic Company in 2011, operator of America’s largest phosphate mining facility.
Jackson’s close ties and loyalty to the Clintons were revealed when she joined the Clinton Foundation’s board of directors in 2013, just months after she left the EPA. Jackson is also close to John Podesta, Clinton’s national campaign chairman.
Morocco’s state-owned phosphate company, OCP, would ostensibly have benefited from Jackson’s move to shut down Mosaic. Mohammed donated up to $15 million to the Clinton Foundation through OCP.
The other favor did not try to destroy American jobs; it merely acquiesced to Morocco’s invasion, rule of, and extraction of the mineral wealth from territory it does not legitimately enjoy sovereignty over. This is known by progressives as the rawest form of colonialism and imperialism. But for Alinsky disciple and champion of the oppressed Hillary Clinton, that was no problem:
Clinton also relaxed U.S. foreign aid restrictions on Morocco, thus allowing U.S. funds to be used in the territory of Western Sahara where OCP operates phosphate mining operations. The aid restrictions stemmed from Morocco’s illegal occupation of the territory since 1974.
Morocco is repeatedly condemned for seizing the territory and for unilaterally extracting the country’s valuable minerals, impoverishing what’s left of the local Sahrawi Arabs.
No nation recognizes Moroccan sovereignty over the Western Sahara and the United Nation’s Security Council legal office and the International Court of Justice both demand that Muhammed withdraw his claim over the territory and end illegal extraction of minerals.
An email WikiLeaks made public last week illustrated how Clinton, while acting as secretary of state, negotiated an additional $12 million donation to the Clinton Foundation from Muhammed in return for holding the 2015 Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) meeting in Marrakech, Morocco. Another $1 million payment came from OCP to cover the expenses of the CGI meeting.
It’s time for all decent people to recognize that the label “Clinton Crime Family” is not entirely satirical.
