If someone generally wants something done but doesn’t want to be directly linked to it they will often find some kind of emissary of sorts to do their dirty work for them. That’s one thing that the Clintons have always been good at, getting other people to do their dirty work for them.
It’s now being reported that a new batch of emails are showing that the State Department gave special and preferential access to top Clinton Foundation donors while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state Barack Hussein Obama was president. This is just unbelievable.
The Clinton corruption runs so deep that if anyone were to fall in, then they would vanish forever! And all this is being linked to the case where a potentially shady Miami businessman is currently serving a 12-year prison sentence after scamming the government out of millions of our hard-earned tax dollars.
The donor is called Claudio Osorio, and he received 10 million dollars from the government after the Clinton State Department reportedly pulled some strings in exchange for foundation “contributions.”
Osorio received the money from the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC). OPIC is a federal agency that at the time operated under the guidance of the Hillary Clinton State Department to build houses in Haiti after the devastating 2010 earthquake left most of the nation in ruins. The OPIC exists to promote U.S. government investments abroad to foster the development and growth of international free markets.
Osorio’s famed “Haiti project” was supposed to build 500 homes for displaced families who suffered in the aftermath of the quake, but he pocketed the money with the help of the Clinton Foundation and the state department. Only ten homes were built out of the 500 homes that were supposed to be built.
That means the money designated for 490 homes went to them, while 490 families remained displaced.
The Miami Herald reports: “Miami businessman Claudio Osorio gets 12 years in prison for fraud conviction
Claudio Osorio, a Venezuelan native who rose to the top of Miami’s business community, was humbled Wednesday when a federal judge sentenced him to 12 1/2 years in prison for stealing tens of millions of dollars from investors in his failed venture to build low-cost construction materials for housing in developing countries.
U.S. District Judge William Dimitrouleas also ordered Osorio, 54, to pay back about $24 million to investors in his defunct company, Innovida Holdings, Inc.
The judge gave Osorio credit for pleading guilty to three conspiracies of wire fraud and money laundering and accepted the prosecution’s recommendation that he receive a 10 percent sentence reduction under federal guidelines. But Dimitrouleas still imposed a sentence that nearly equaled the low end of those guidelines, saying Osorio committed “extensive fraud.”
Osorio, who once lived on Star Island before his arrest last December, apologized to his family, Innovida employees and investors.
“I betrayed all the faith and belief they deposited in me,” Osorio told the judge. “I failed them.”
Osorio, who once hobnobbed with Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama at fundraisers in his waterfront home, pleaded guilty in February to three conspiracy offenses involving wire fraud and money laundering.
After running a Fortune 500 computer-distribution company that went bankrupt in 2000, Osorio launched an ill-fated venture named Innovida Holdings to build low-cost housing in Haiti and other developing countries. That start-up got him into serious trouble with investors and the feds.
Osorio also will be required to pay restitution of between $20 million and $50 million to investment victims, but only a fraction of that money has been recovered so far in a parallel bankruptcy action.
