Americans continue to hold the view, according to major polls, that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is “untrustworthy.” Most Haitians—in the United States, Haiti and the Haitian diaspora—would say that characterization is an understatement.

Hillary’s all-out campaign to win the U.S. presidency has hit some major bumps, almost all of them pointing to her (and Bill’s) alleged untrustworthiness and unethical conduct and practices. At the center of it all is the recurring question: Where and how did this once-cash-strapped couple get their money?
