JANUARY 31, 2008
Bill Clinton advocated for an oppressive communist leader known for human rights violations, corruption and election fraud to help a Vancouver businessman get uranium and, in return, the millionaire cut a hefty check to the former president’s foundation.
Clinton proudly used his clout to seal the sort of deal that would otherwise be impossible between an unknown uranium mining entrepreneur and the communist dictator of a former Soviet Republic (Kazakhstan), who happens to own one-fifth of the world’s uranium reserves.
With the help of his good buddy Clinton, Vancouver mining mogul Frank Giustra secured tens of millions of dollars worth of uranium to fuel nuclear reactors worldwide. The thank you note included a $31.3 million donation to the William J. Clinton Foundation as well as a future pledge of $100 million.
All Clinton had to do was endorse the election-rigging, communist human rights violator (Nursultan Nazarbayev) to head an international organization that monitors elections and supports democracy (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe). The former president’s endorsement defied the U.S. government and even his senator wife, who had previously signed a State Department letter detailing Nazarbayev’s serious corruption, canceled elections and government control of the news media.
Yet Clinton flew to meet the Nazarbayev and actually congratulated him for opening up his country’s social and political life to help seal the uranium deal. Incidentally, Clinton lied to the American public when he took the 2005 trip to the former Soviet Republic, saying the visit was to announce a Clinton Foundation agreement with that country to buy discounted AIDS drugs.
The Clinton’s have helped many wealthy donors secure lucrative deals with foreign governments and their ties to the communist Chinese have been well documented. In the 1990s Clinton and his Democratic party accepted massive campaign contributions from the Chinese in exchange for highly secret missile technology and his administration sold coveted commerce department seats in exchange for donations.
