The ties between Laureate college, the Clinton Foundation, Hillary’s campaign, and the State Department

June 2, 2016

 This is a little convoluted but here goes, according to this story:

In April 2015, Bill Clinton was forced to abruptly resign from his lucrative perch as honorary chancellor of Laureate Education, a for-profit college company. The reason for Clinton’s immediate departure: Clinton Cash revealed, and Bloomberg confirmed, that Laureate funneled Bill Clinton $16.46 million over five years while Hillary Clinton’s State Dept. pumped at least $55 million to a group run by Laureate’s founder and chairman, Douglas Becker, a man with strong ties to the Clinton Global Initiative. Laureate has donated between $1 million and $5 million (donations are reported in ranges, not exact amounts) to the Clinton Foundation.

Shortly after Bill Clinton’s lucrative 2010 Laureate appointment, Hillary Clinton’s State Dept. began pumping millions of its USAID dollars to a sister nonprofit, International Youth Foundation (IYF), which is run by Laureate’s founder and chairman, Douglas Becker. Indeed, State Dept. funding skyrocketed once Bill Clinton got on the Laureate payroll, according to Bloomberg:

A Bloomberg examination of IYF’s public filings show that in 2009, the year before Bill Clinton joined Laureate, the nonprofit received 11 grants worth $9 million from the State Department or the affiliated USAID. In 2010, the group received 14 grants worth $15.1 million. In 2011, 13 grants added up to $14.6 million. The following year, those numbers jumped: IYF received 21 grants worth $25.5 million, including a direct grant from the State Department.

  Of course this is just a coincidence, nothing to see here and anyway what difference does it make?

    The problem with all these reports is they are to complex and boring for most Americans to read and comprehend.

    Idiot Democrats the word of the day is – Quid pro quo
    Quid pro quo (“something for something” or “this for that” in Latin) means an exchange of goods or services, where one transfer is contingent upon the other.

    The old hippie saying “Gas, Ass or Grass. Nobody rides for free”.

    MSNBC morning Joe gets it!
