Leid Stories Stories and news that affect us all

Having been called out on the slipshod and highly irregular administrative and business practices of the Clinton Foundation and its affiliated entities, it appeared Bill and Hillary Clinton began to shut down parts of their U.S.-headquartered operations, especially those that were running afoul of U.S. charity and other laws.

At the same time, the foundation seems to be increasing its involvement overseas, flying under the radar of strict compliance and accountability.

Three agricultural projects run by the Clinton Foundation in Malawi, Rwanda and Tanzania again raise the issue of how the Clintons repeatedly flout laws, domestic and international, that regulate charities.

Ex-Wall Street banker-turned financial investigator Charles Ortel for years has been tracking the under-the-radar operations of the Clinton financial empire, at the core of which is a family foundation. The foundation, formally The Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, claims it is a charity helping to solve major human challenges in the world, but Ortel has found damning proof that it has been operating in flagrant violation of domestic and international law as a slush fund for the Clintons, selling access and favors to “donors.”

“It’s the largest unprosecuted fraud in U.S. history,” says Ortel, who proved that several Wall Street-traded companies had been overvaluing their stocks by billions of dollars during the time of the 2008-2009 stock market crash.

Outside the watchful eyes of governmental agencies—particularly those familiar with the law-breaking, charity-fraud practices of the Clinton Foundation and its various affiliates—the Clintons appear to be back in their “we do good works” business.

Ex-Wall Street banker-turned financial investigator Charles Ortel for years has been tracking the under-the-radar operations of the Clinton financial empire, at the core of which is a family foundation.

Today on Leid Stories, Ortel details the highly irregular business model the Clintons appear to have followed, and still are following, to build their business empire.

Leid Stories examines what can only be described as a masterful turnaround for President Trump who, until Hurricane Harvey, was under brutal attack, dodging blows that could have signaled the beginning of the end.

Though scathed, Trump pulled through—not because he’s such a brilliant tactician, but because he comes from a “swamp,” too, and obeys its cardinal rule: Do unto them always, and never let them do unto you.

It’s a steal—like what happened to Bernie’s Sanders’ votes in the rigged primaries. Hillary Clinton is telling all in her new, uncredited-real-writer book, What Happened. The book’s release clearly is a reprisal against Trump and a way to establish herself as the doyenne of U.S. politics—and, of course, to raise some “legit” cash.

At a packed “Make America Great Again” rally yesterday in Phoenix, Ariz., President Donald Trump was on fire, proudly telling his supporters that together they had achieved so much in just seven months. It’s a rough road ahead, he said, but if they re-upped, so will he.

That sentiment was far from what protesters outside were feeling. So loud and angry, they forced an early end to the rally and Trump’s departure.

Listeners offer their takes on whether Trump should pursue reelection, based on recent events.

President Donald Trump yesterday announced to soldiers at the Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Arlington, Va., that U.S. military policy and tactics in Afghanistan and South Asia have been revised. He did not spell out the changes he has made, saying that it’s about “killing terrorists.”

Leid Stories listeners discuss Trump’s speech, paying attention to what he was communicating, even though he didn’t actually voice it.

George Webb, a citizen journalist with Crowdsource the Truth, who was the first to raise pointed questions about Imran Awan, returns with more answers about the Pakistan-born IT engineer who owned and operated his own private business while managing to add several dozen high-level congressional accounts, most of them from Democrats serving on committees handling classified information.

On July 24, Awan was arrested at Dulles International Airport on bank-fraud charges. Last Thursday, Awan’s wife, Hina Awan, also was charged with bank fraud.

Webb reveals additional details about the Awan family and the feds’ intense interest in Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), the fired former chair of the Democratic National Committee.
