As Secretary of State in 2011, Hillary Clinton traveled to the General Motors plant in Tashkent, Uzbekistan and claimed the plant “is a collaboration between Uzbek and American companies, and it will serve as a symbol of our friendship and cooperation.”
This trip to the GM plant came a year after General motors contributed between $50,001 and $100,000 and $685,000 worth of pick-up trucks to Clinton Foundation for Haitian hurricane relief. When they made this donation to the foundation they were also lobbying the State Department.
The visit came a year after the General Motors Foundation had contributed $684,455 in vehicles to the Clinton Foundation.
Clinton’s State Department also made GM Uzbekistan a finalist for the Award for Corporate Excellence in 2012.
According to Fox News, “GM-Uzbekistan is now embroiled in a massive scandal, reportedly facing charges of fraud, money laundering, and embezzlement, a legal case that has reached high-ranking government officials in the country.”
While Clinton isn’t tied to any of the allegations, it just adds to a long list of apparent corruption the Clinton family and their foundation is involved in.
President of the watchdog National Legal and Policy Center, Peter Flaherty told Fox News that “This episode is another example for the Clintons of how, if you do business with them, they will do something for you.” He also said, “Any enterprise in Uzbekistan is going to be suspect. It is notoriously corrupt, and the government dominates everything. A company there seems like an unlikely nominee for a corporate excellence award.”
This instance can be added to the long list of scandals the Clinton’s will get away with since the liberal media won’t bat an eye at it.
