For $28 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation, Hillary Clinton used her position as Secretary of State to do two big favors for King Mohammed VI, the ruler of Morocco.
With the help of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) chief Lisa Jackson, Clinton tried to shut down America’s largest phosphate mining facility so Morocco’s state-owned phosphate company, OCP, would essentially take over control of the market. This move would have left the United States dependent on phosphate from countries such as Morocco, Russia, China, and Saudi Arabia.
Jackson is good friends with the Clintons and has been on the board of directors for the Clinton Foundation since 2013.
The following excerpt from a story by the Daily Caller shows how Clinton and Jackson colluded to have the Florida-based Mosaic Company shut down in 2011.
The regulatory assault against the U.S. phosphate industry began in earnest when Jackson launched a barrage of intimidating regulatory initiatives against Mosaic. Environmental concerns about phosphates date from 1979 but the EPA did little to address concerns related to phosphate mining until Jackson’s 2011 moves.
The regulatory assault on the U.S. phosphate industry encompassed several agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). DHS aircraft flew at low altitudes over Mosaic’s central Florida operations in search of environmental problems. The EPA also threatened large Superfund penalties, which could have bankrupted Mosaic.
Rep. Dennis Ross, a Republican congressman who represents the Florida district where Mosaic operates, told TheDCNF he now sees why the EPA went after Mosaic.
“The tactics makes perfect sense as to why the EPA, under Lisa Jackson’s tutelage, targeted Mosaic’s phosphate operations in my district. I was never given any answers when I questioned Lisa Jackson about the EPA’s deliberate actions against Mosaic,” Ross told TheDCNF.
“Now I know why. An environmental concern never existed. This targeting was all done as a payback to Morocco for donating millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation,” Ross said.
In addition to trying to shut down Mosaic, Clinton also relaxed U.S. foreign aid restrictions on Morocco that were put in place after Morocco’s illegal occupation of a territory of Western Sahara back in 1974. The relaxation of this restriction allows U.S. funds to now be used in this territory.
