In a move that could have major repercussions, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, (R-Iowa,) has opened a new investigation into Hillary Clinton and allegations that the former secretary of state meddled in a Bangladeshi domestic politics to help a Clinton Foundation donor.
‘This new evidence of 'pay-to-play' influence paddling and special treatment for donors reinforces the appearance that donations to the Clinton Foundation resulted in favorable treatment by Secretary Clinton’s State Department,’ Grassley said.
The Daily Caller first reported Grassley’s move after publishing a piece in May saying that Clinton had sent top U.S. diplomats to pressure Bangladesh’s Prime Minister Sheik Hasina, and her son Sajeeb Wazed, as the country investigated Clinton friend Muhammad Yunus for corruption.
On being inaugurated as president Trump, along with his appointees at the State Department and Department of Justice showed little interest in reopening investigations of Clinton’s extra curricular activities while she was serving as Secretary of State, or the multiple persistent allegations of “pay-to-play” deals which peddled influence to foreign nationals, or other evidence of corruption involving the Clinton Foundation. Until now.
The Daily Caller News Group exclusively reported in May that Clinton ordered U.S. diplomats to pressure Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheik Hasina and her son Sajeeb Wazed in an effort to kill that country’s corruption investigation of Yunus and Grameen Bank. Yunus was then managing director of the state-owned Bangladesh bank.
In a June 1, 2017, letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Grassley repeated TheDCNF charge that Clinton threatened Wazed with an IRS tax audit if his mother did not back away from the corruption probe. Wazed has lived in the U.S. for 17 years.
Yunus, who led the country’s Grameen Bank and whose microfinance concept won him the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006, was accused of overcharging customers and ‘sucking blood from the poor.’
