Africa: Bill Clinton Tours Africa As Donation Foundation Scandal Bites Hillary3 May 2015
By Christina Okello
Former US President Bill Clinton wrapped up a three-day visit in Kenya on Sunday, as part of a nine-day African trip for the family's foundation. The charity organization is under fire for not declaring tens of millions of dollars in foreign donations.
It was a pioneering vehicle that was meant to seal the Clinton's family legacy, instead the Clinton Global Initiative has turned into a headache for US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Revelations that she received staggering amounts of foreign donations while Secretary of State, have led to allegations that she traded favors for donations, and mired the beginning of her election campaign.
Smelling the danger, Hillary stood down from the foundation's board of directors, but as wife of the charity's founder, the scandal hasn't died down, and appears to have been the reason why Bill Clinton and Chelsea left for Africa in the first place.
"The best thing they could do for Hillary's campaign was to get out of the country," Hank Sheinkopf, a former adviser to Bill Clinton, told RFI.
"With Hillary tied up with the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primaries, she didn't need the negative publicity;" Sheinkopf explained.
Last week, Chelsea and her former President father landed in Tanzania, where they began their nine-day tour, which will also take them to Liberia on Monday and Morocco after Kenya.
An opportunity for the father-daughter team to champion the benefits of the Foundation's work, and less of the negatives.
"The Clinton foundation, regardless of what some may think, does important work, it convenes a conference every year bringing people throughout the world, NGOs and people in high positions of power to come up with constructive answers to the world's problems," Sheinkopf said defensively.
Despite the scandal, it doesn't seem to have had too much impact on Bill and Chelsea's reception in Kenya.
"Much of the media coverage has been very positive," said Tom Mboya, a government specialist. "The view here on the ground is very positive of former President and Chelsea visiting. We haven't had many of these high profile visits from senior officials - and it's clearly a prelude to Obama's visit in July, that's where the focus seems to lie."
Beating Barack Obama to his late father's home country was clearly a "provocation" by the Clintons for Foreign Affairs analyst Christian Malard. A blow that was only softened by US Secretary of State John Kerry's visit to the country, at the same time.
Judge Jeanine: Hillary Is 'Ruthless, Profit-Driven and All About the Money'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=veBYfrZcfMs
"She doesn't care about you. This woman only cares about herself, money, her next step up the political ladder and, if president, will only care about her legacy," Judge Jeanine said. "And if you don't see that from the events of this past week, then you're exactly the kind of tuned out voter that Hillary is hoping to turn out in droves in 2016."
"Hillary Clinton’s life has always been about money. From Whitewater to cattle futures to leaving the White House with whatever china she could take. As a prosecutor, I can tell you that it's always about money or women, and the Clintons have both," Judge Jeanine stated.
"And when I hear things like, “Oh, everybody does it,” my back goes up. I am tired of people defining political deviancy down because it's being committed by a member of their party." I'm going to shock you. Hillary Clinton would be, without a doubt, hands down, the absolute best CEO of a public company. Ruthless, profit-driven and all about the money.
But if you're looking for a different kind of CEO, one to run the greatest nation on Earth and bring back America - now teetering on the brink of socialism - to be president of the United States, Hillary Clinton is the worst possible choice. She, in fact, is the person to run away from.
And what makes you think she cares about you? She doesn't care about you. This woman only cares about herself, money, her next step up the political ladder and, if president, will only care about her legacy. And if you don't see that from the events of this past week, then you're exactly the kind of tuned out voter that Hillary is hoping to turn out in droves in 2016.
So what am I talking about? I'm talking about influence peddling on a global scale and the setting of American foreign policy to coincide with the flow of hundreds of millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation and millions directly to Bill Clinton and ultimately Hillary in speaking fees.
Exhibit one: Bill takes a plane ride to Kazakhstan with a Canadian who wants to buy uranium. Now the president of Kazakhstan is a human rights violator. But Bill actually praises his human rights record and then expresses support for that president to lead an international elections monitoring group. Crazy - because that Kazak president is accused of rigging his own elections!
But back to the deal. Now Kazakhstan approves the sale of uranium to Bill's flying buddy. And months later the Clinton foundation gets a $31.3 million donation from the Canadian which was a secret and not disclosed by the Clintons until the Canadian government outed it.
Now the Canadian wants to sell his uranium business to Russia. Enter the Clintons. The State Department approval is needed and granted. Bill gets a $500,000 speaking fee and Russia now controls 20 percent of the U.S. uranium production - a national strategic asset.
That very same Russian company - Uranium One - made a $2.35 million contribution to the Clinton Foundation - not disclosed by the Clintons.
