Clinton Foundation Received Millions from Saudis, Qatar, Iran

From the Clarion Project:

A senior Muslim Brotherhood operative recently arrested in Egypt worked for years at the William J. Clinton Foundation. The Clinton Foundation has also received millions of dollars from Saudi Arabia, Qatar and a foundation that is an Iranian regime front.

The current Egyptian government, which was put in power after the military overthrew the Muslim Brotherhood, has launched a sweeping crackdown on the Brotherhood and calls it a terrorist organization. One of the senior officials arrested is Gehad (Jihad) el-Haddad.

From 2007 to 2012, el-Haddad was the Egyptian director for the Clinton Foundation. El-Haddad’s father is Essam el-Haddad, a member of the Brotherhood’s Guidance Bureau.

While he worked for the Clintons, el-Haddad began working in May 2011 as a senior adviser for the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood’s political wing, the Freedom and Justice Party. Apparently, the Clinton Foundation had no problem with his side-work and continued to employ him.

After he left the Clinton Foundation, el-Haddad became a senior adviser to the Muslim Brotherhood directly and became a member of the Steering Committee for the Brotherhood’s Renaissance Program, a plan to institute Sharia law in Egypt. He then became a spokesperson and media strategist for Mohammed Morsi’s successful presidential campaign.

To put it simply, the Clinton Foundation’s former Egyptian official is a big shot in the Muslim Brotherhood. And only one month after he departed the Foundation, Morsi spoke at the Clinton Global Initiative.

It’s reasonable to speculate that the idea for that came from el-Haddad, but there’s another Brotherhood-linked individual that works at the Foundation: Huma Abedin.

The Clarion Project has reported extensively on Abedin, such as how she served as an assistant-editor of an Islamist journal from 1996, when she became a White House intern, until 2008, when she became Deputy Chief of Staff to Hillary Clinton, then-Secretary of State.  The journal was put together by several members of Abedin’s immediate family, including her mother, a prominent member of the Muslim Sisterhood.

While working in the State Department, Abedin was also a consultant to the Clinton Foundation and worked for Mrs. Clinton directly, outside of the governmental duties. Abedin was given special treatment by Mrs. Clinton to permit her to do this. Abedin did not disclose this consulting work.

The Clarion Project also discovered that the Clinton Foundation received a large donation from the Alavi Foundation, a front for the Iranian regime that sought to advance the regime’s point of view. Alavi’s financial disclosures show a $30,000 donation in 2005.

A recent statement from the Alavi Foundation refers to a donation to the Clinton Foundation to help victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Additionally, CNN reported in 2008 that the Clinton Foundation received millions of dollars from figures close to the governments of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar. All three have long used their oil wealth to finance pro-Islamist sentiment. Qatar is a major supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Influences like these help explain why the Clinton State Department towed a pro-Brotherhood line.

Hillary Clinton is, by far, the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016 with every poll showing her winning the general election, usually by a very comfortable margin.

With money and influences like these, we can expect the same if she becomes president.


As with all things political… follow the money.   Legal or illegal.

We can expect that the media will continue to ignore Benghazi and other Clinton scandals as they continue to advocate for “the smartest women in the world” while at the same time pillory the Conservatives who love this country.  

In the meantime, the GOP will continue to offer us RINOs draped in faux Conservative credentials (for election purposes only) that will get steam-rolled in 2016.  

Unless true Conservative hold strong and garner enough seats in the House and Senate next year (barring voter fraud) then welcome to our future.

  1. Well, if Sultan Bu’raq bin al Obama can have campaign phone banks in the Gaza Strip, the Clintons MUST do better!
    Remember that donations to their foundation can be turned into campaign contributions without those pesky campaign finance laws getting in the way.

    Yeah and some folks out there will still vote for the bitch.

    • Hardnox says:

      Indeed they will. The lamestream is in full cover-up mode on Benghazi. Ditto with the mess in Egypt and every other place she and Obonehead crapped up.

  3. Clyde says:

    So much for liberals eschewing wealth, eh? THEY want to have it, and F#%* the rest of us. Clinton. Short for “unindicted criminal”.

  4. Kathy says:

    For years now, information such as this has been brought to light and still no consequences. I don’t know if we can survive another 4 years, or more, of these shameless lefties.

    Hey, where’s the pic? All I have is a box with a little black dealie-bob in the upper left corner … and speaking of upper left corners, HRC will probably not receive the nomination. The polling is based on fantasy, not a dream. Now if the fantasy gets converted to a dream … WATCH OUT.

    No one pays attention to the laws anymore. This is just an excerpt…read it:
    The Logan Act has remained almost unchanged and unused since its passage. The act is short and reads as follows:

    Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

    This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply, himself or his agent, to any foreign government or the agents thereof for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.

    If the conservatives would just grow some balls and bring these folks up on charges. But that hasn’t happened in so many years the slimeballs act with impunity and know they will get away with it without so much as a slap on the wrist.
    When was the last time a politician was convicted of something akin? Whitaker Chambers, maybe??

    • Hardnox says:

      I believe you are right. Chambers probably was the last one.

      On a side note, Zero’s DOJ is using a 1911 law to clamp down on what few journalists that we still have regarding pseudo-classified information. Looks like he is trying to keep them in line.

  8. I cannot believe the Founding Fathers ever envisioned such a traitorous bunch of leaders as we have now, and even less, that they would not only be tolerated, but welcomed into the halls of highest power, to the detriment of the public as individuals and as a whole.
