5/4/17 – Clinton Threat
The Clinton Foundation is back in the news.
Here’s what’s happening behind the headlines.
Sajeeb Wazed Joy is a permanent U.S. resident. He’s lived here for nearly two decades. He also happens to the son of Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
This is where the problems began, according to the Dhaka Tribune.
According to Joy, State Department officials began threatening him. He was warned he would be audited by the IRS unless he convinced his mother, the Bangladesh prime minister, to end the investigation of the Clinton Foundation donor.
Prime Minister Hasina told the Tribune that Hillary Clinton personally threatened to pull U.S. foreign aid if the investigation wasn’t dropped. The U.S. ambassador to Bangladesh and the Assistant Secretary of State warned there’d be foreign aid consequences if Yunus was removed as managing director, according to the Prime Minister.
About the same time, the World Bank rescinded a $1.2 billion loan to build a bridge near the capital city. The previous foreign minister claims the World Bank’s decision was linked to the investigation of the Clinton donor.
