Leid Stories – Congresswoman Pushes for Three-Pronged Federal Probe of Clinton Foundation; Bernie Sanders Proudly Capitulates – 07.13.16

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) is calling for a federal investigation into the operations of the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation—a “lawless, pay-to-play enterprise that has been operating under a cloak of philanthropy for years,” she alleges in written requests to FBI Director James Comey, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, and Federal Trade Commission chairperson Edith Ramirez. The federal agencies’ “public-corruption” probes should focus on the relationships between big-money donors to the foundation and U.S. foreign-policy decisions made during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, says Blackburn.

Charles Ortel, a former Wall Street investor who exposed General Electric’s multibillion-dollar stock fraud in 2007-2008, since February last year has been examining the Clinton Foundation’s global labyrinth of nonprofit subsidiaries. In an exclusive Leid Stories series, Ortel has charged that the Clinton Foundation is “complete and total fraud.” Ortel discusses Rep. Blackburn’s three-tiered probe request and his most recent forensic findings about the Clinton Foundation.

Well, we saw it coming quite a ways back and you were warned: Bernie Sanders will cave to Hillary and the Democratic Party, trading in the 13 million-plus popular votes he got during the primaries for the illusion of more clout when he goes back to the Senate and within the ranks of the increasingly irrelevant Democratic Party. His full-throated endorsement of Clinton yesterday was a fait accompli.

Leid Stories—The Clinton Foundation: Where Have All the Millions Gone?—06.29.16

Charles Ortel, a former Wall Street banker and investor whose digging into the financials of General Electric in 2007-2008 revealed that the conglomerate had fraudulently overvalued its stock by hundreds of billions of dollars.

Since February last year, Ortel has been looking closely at the finances and operations of the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Foundation. In a five-part series on Leid Stories, he detailed his stunning findings that the foundation is engaging in “massive fraud” through highly questionable, and downright illegal, practices that purport to be in line with the foundation’s philanthropic work but really are designed to enrich the Clintons.

With the same zeal he pursued GE and exposed its financial crimes, Ortel is untangling the global labyrinth within which the foundation functions and how it has managed to evade the law as a renegade “charitable” institution.

Today Ortel reveals the foundation’s shady operations involving hundreds of millions of dollars solicited and received from foreign governments—ostensibly to support HIV/AIDS programs in the developing world—but have yet to be accounted for.

Leid Stories – The Clinton Foundation: How $60 Million ‘Disappeared from Its Books’ – 05.25.16

Charles Ortel, a former Wall Street banker and investor whose digging into the financials of General Electric in 2007-2008 proved that the conglomerate had fraudulently overvalued its stock by hundreds of billions of dollars, has been detailing exclusively on Leid Stories major financial and accountability problems with the international philanthropic conglomerate operating as the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation.

Today Ortel, who has charged that the foundation is engaging in massive charity fraud, traces the “disappearance” of $60 million that allegedly was given as a “soft” political contribution to the foundation during the time that Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D-Virginia), a close friend and political ally of Bill and Hillary Clinton, was a lead member of the foundation’s board.

McAuliffe is being investigated by a joint FBI-U.S. Justice Department probe looking into illegal contributions he allegedly accepted through the foundation for his own election campaign.

Leid Stories – The Clinton Foundation A ‘Complete Fraud,’ Says Banker-Investor Who Blew the Whistle on GE Stock Scam – 05.23.16

Charles K. Ortel, a former Wall Street banker and investor, blew the whistle on General Electric in 2007-2008, after tearing its financial reports apart and finding the conglomerate had been lying to its investors, fraudulently overvaluing its stock by hundreds of millions of dollars.

Fifteen months ago, Ortel began looking forensically at the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation—a politically connected philanthropic conglomerate with multiple related entities, global interests and highly questionable fundraising practices. Like GE, he said, its financials were telling as very different stories from those it “officially” reported.

In an exclusive, no-holds-barred interview, Ortel again blows the whistle. What he has discovered about the Clintons’ foundation is that it is “a complete fraud,” he alleges.
