Former Haitian Senate President Calls Clintons 'Common Thieves Who Should Be in Jail'
An eyewitness to the Clinton Foundation's corrupt dealings in Haiti says virtually nothing has been done to help the victims of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti that claimed an estimated 200,000 lives, and that the Clintons are nothing but common thieves who should be in jail.
Sandy Rios of American Family Radio interviewed former Haitian Senate President Bernard Sansaricq on Thursday, and the enraged Haitian had nothing good to say about the Clintons. He angrily claimed that they brought their "pay to play" politics to Haiti at the expense of the Haitian people.
Sansaricq said that the Clinton Foundation received 14.3 billion dollars in donation money to help with the relief effort. President Obama and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon put the Clinton Foundation in charge of the reconstruction, but Haiti has seen no help. The money all went to friends of Bill Clinton.
It is now known, thanks to WikiLeaks, that the State Department colluded with the Clinton Foundation to make sure that those multi-million dollar contracts would literally go to "friends of Bill."
Email exchanges show Clinton Foundation officials in the hours after the massive earthquake reaching out to a senior aide to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who "repeatedly gave special attention to those identified by the abbreviations 'FOB' (friends of Bill Clinton) or 'WJC VIPs' (William Jefferson Clinton VIPs)."
“Need you to flag when people are friends of WJC,” wrote Caitlin Klevorick, then a senior State Department official who was juggling incoming offers of assistance being funneled to the State Department by the Clinton Foundation. “Most I can probably ID but not all.”
"They are nothing but common thieves," the enraged Sansaricq told Rios. "And they should be in jail."
Sansaricq said although Bill Clinton was put in charge of the reconstruction, he did absolutely nothing but give contracts to his cronies and built a sweatshop next to a goldmine that was given to Hillary Clinton's brother, Anthony Rodham, in violation of the Haitian constitution.
He said he could go on for hours about the Clinton Foundation's destruction of the rice production in Haiti because they were importing rice from Clinton's cronies in Arkansas. And rice is something Haiti could really use right now.
The Clintons also awarded the country's only cell phone company to another crony, Denis O'Brien, using taxpayer dollars. O'Brien has made 265 million dollars, and a substantial portion of that has gone back to the Clinton Foundation.
A Korean garment company is another Clinton Foundation "success story." It was supposed to provide 60,000 jobs, but it has only provided about 5,000 jobs because it is located too far away to help the people in need. Top Hillary Clinton aide Cheryl Mills, he said, is also involved with this project. He says the company was awarded the contract because it is a donor to the Clinton Foundation.
Sansaricq pointed out that some of the 14.3 billion dollars the Clinton Foundation was given to rebuild the country after the 2010 earthquake could have been put toward building hurricane-proof infrastructure. But the Clintons only enriched themselves and did nothing to help the victims -- and now the body count for Hurricane Matthew has gone up to over 1,000 people and millions of homes have been destroyed.
He said that Bill Clinton became a power broker in Haiti in 1994 when he invaded Haiti to restore democracy. "He wanted to have power in Haiti even after his presidency," Sansaricq said.
He claimed that after he became the president of the Senate, then-President Clinton tried to "buy him out" and "make him the richest man in Haiti." He says he told Clinton he was not for sale. After that, his visa was revoked by a Clinton executive order.
He also described the drug activity that took place in Haiti after Clinton invaded the country in 1994. He said that after Clinton helped return Jean Betrand Aristide to power, he channeled 15% of Haiti's drug trafficking into the U.S. "This is a huge scandal in Haiti," he declared. "A scandal beyond comprehension." Sansaricq claimed that the whole reason Clinton invaded Haiti was so he could consolidate power and "steal the country blind."
Sansaricq said that he went to school in the United States and it was his dream to return to Haiti and help improve the country with everything he had learned about the free enterprise system. That dream was crushed, he said, when Clinton invaded Haiti in 1994. He said that when he was in the Senate, Aristide was protected by the Clintons while he was exporting drugs to the United States and that Aristide will never be indicted because he promised that the day he was indicted, he would reveal everything. He said one of his best friends -- a young woman -- was assassinated because she was against Clinton's invasion. He claims that Clinton blocked the investigation.
"They have enriched themselves and their cronies on the backs of poorest people in the Western Hemisphere," he charged. "People are hungry, sick, they have no shelter, and Bill Clinton is running away with billions of dollars in his pocket."
He said that it is common knowledge in Haiti that the money that was given for their benefit was stolen by Bill Clinton.
Sansaricq also appeared on Fox News to sound the alarm about the Clintons:
State Department spokesman John Kirby told ABC News the Clinton Foundation served as “an important coordinating hub” for U.S. and international relief efforts.
The emails, he said, “show State Department employees working across agencies and organizations, including President Clinton’s aides, to identify potential resources, solve problems and achieve the department and the U.N.’s shared goal of helping Haiti.”
Bruce Lindsey, the chairman of the board of the Clinton Foundation, told ABC News in a written statement that “no special treatment was expected or given.”
“This was a time of dire need, and we mobilized our network and wanted to make sure that any help offered was put to good use,” Lindsey said. “Many had been involved in disaster response before, in New Orleans after Katrina or after the tsunami, and again sought to help.”
