Clinton Foundation:

From Globe Trot by Mindy Belz:

NIGERIA: Emails released this week show a senior Clinton Foundation employee asked the Clinton-led State Department to help a top Foundation donor. Gilbert Chagoury, a prominent Nigerian businessman of Lebanese descent, surfaced as the “key guy there” in just-released emails dating to 2009. Chagoury donated between $1 million and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation, and in 2009 he pledged $1 billion to the Clinton Global Initiative. In that same time frame, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton overruled the pleas of top advisers to designate a terror group in Nigeria, preempting financial monitoring and restrictions on Nigerians like Chagoury.
  • Chagoury made his fortune working black-market oil deals with American fugitive financier Marc Rich, who was pardoned for a 65-count tax invasion indictment on President Bill Clinton’s last day in office.
  • At least 13 Christians were killed in Muslim extremist attacks in Nigeria this week.
