Hillary Clinton’s campaign has found itself in hot water this week after one of her foundation’s biggest donors was linked to “Blood minerals.”
“When the Vancouver, Canada-based Lundin Group gave its $100 million commitment to the ‘Clinton Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative,’ the company had long been cutting deals with warlords, Marxist rebels, military strongmen and dictatorships in the war-torn African countries of Congo, Sudan and Ethiopia,” Richard Pollack wrote for the Daily Caller.
Western Journalism reported that Lundin Group founder Adolf Lundin secured mineral rights from the Congo’s brutal dictator Mobutu Sese Seko in 1996 by allegedly donating to Mobutu’s campaign fund, an accusation which Lundin himself denies. One year later, Pollack claims that Lundin Group made a deal “with Congolese Marxist warlord Laurent Kabila, with a $50 million down payment toward $250 million they would give to the rebels in exchange for mining rights, according to U.N. Inspector Jason K. Stearns. Lundin eventually won majority rights to one of the country’s richest mineral veins.”
Various watchdog and humanitarian groups like Swedwatch, Christian Aid, Enough.org and Human Rights Watch have listed many abuses for which they say the Lundin Group is responsible. These accusations include jailing of journalists, large-scale relocations of entire villages to make way for mining, and starvation of refugees as evidence Lundin Group cares more about its business dealings than the human beings in this world.
Washington. Rep. Joe Pitts (R-Pa.) who co-chairs the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission, slammed the Clintons for doing business with the Lundin Group. He told Daily Caller that “areas with high conflict over minerals are breeding grounds for human rights abuses on a massive scale, and when entities like the Clintons’ Foundation accept donations from these corrupt actors, they are sanctioning the exploitation.”
The fact that Clinton would do business with people like this once again shows how greedy and evil she is. SHARE this story so we can expose Hillary and her foundation!
