    I gave an honest shot at Clinton. Just ask the Haitians. They'll tell you straight up the Clintons ripped them off.

    According to the Buzzfeed News report, the Haitian government complained in the 1980s that former dictator
    Jean-Claude Duvalier laundered money stolen from the Caribbean nation’s treasury by purchasing an apartment in Trump Tower.

    Duvalier, nicknamed “Baby Doc,” was overthrown in 1986, but three years earlier used a Panamanian shell company called
    Lasa Trade and Finance to buy apartment 54-K in Trump’s Manhattan tower for $446,875 cash.

    Trump, the future U.S. president, signed the deed of sale.

    Donald Trump and Jean-Claude Duvalier
    DON'T MISS STORIES. FOLLOW RAW STORY!

    President Donald Trump insulted Haiti during an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers, but he once signed off on a shady real estate deal with the nation’s ousted dictator.

    More than a fifth of Trump’s condominiums in the U.S. have been purchased since the 1980s in secretive cash transactions that fit a Treasury Department definition of suspicious transactions, reported Buzzfeed News.

    Records show more than 1,300 Trump condos were purchased through shell companies, which allow buyers to shield their finances and identities, and without a mortgage, which protects buyers from lender inquiries.

    Those two characteristics raise alarms about possible money laundering, according to statements issued in recent months by the Department of Treasury, which has investigated transactions just like those all over the country. The agency may even require real estate professionals to adopt new programs to keep illegally obtained funds from being plowed into luxury housing to conceal the money’s origins....

    Mr. Picturetaker,

    So Baby Doc bought a condo. What's your point?

    Yes, BUZZ FEED needs lessons in journalism. Seems to me they got that "Trump Russia thing" right, not mention a big whopping SPECIAL PROSECUTOR "thing" going as an outcome. Of course, all they had to do was scan and hit the send button for that story.

    Facts, DETAILS, big story, back story just utterly irrelevant to your ilk, huh? UN, State Dept., Clinton Foundation AND others. But its the Clintons fault. But of course.

    Craven partisan ignorance.

    Well then allow me to inform you.

    In widely read blogs, in protests in Port-au-Prince and outside Mrs. Clinton’s campaign headquarters in Brooklyn, and on popular call-in radio shows in Florida, where primaries will be held on Tuesday, the Clintons have become prime targets of blame for the country’s woes.

    Among the litany of complaints being laid at their feet: Fewer than half the jobs promised at the industrial park, built after 366 farmers were evicted from their lands, have materialized. Many millions of dollars earmarked for relief efforts have yet to be spent. Mrs. Clinton’s brother Tony Rodham has turned up in business ventures on the island, setting off speculation about insider deals.

    “A vote for Hillary Clinton means further corruption, further death and destruction for our people,” said Dahoud Andre, a radio show host in New York who has helped organize protests against the Clintons. “It means more Haitians leaving Haiti and not being able to live in our country.”

    And now, Michel Martelly, a president whom Mrs. Clinton helped get elected, has turned out to be another in a long line of troubling leaders.

    Tony Jeanthenor, 55, a member of the Miami-based Haitian human rights group Veye-Yo as well as Lavalas Family, a Haitian political party, said he was voting for Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont because of the senator’s distaste for involvement in other countries’ affairs.

    “Nothing good for Haiti can come out of Hillary because of her past behavior,” Mr. Jeanthenor said.

    Haitians were living in tents while the Clintons made sure a luxury hotel was built for one of their donors.
    Efforts to rebuild the thousands of homes destroyed by the 7.0 quake have inched forward. In six years, USAID says, it has constructed fewer than 1,500 homes, and many of those have had to be rebuilt because of poor workmanship.

    At the same time, the Clinton Foundation says it “facilitated” the construction of a luxury hotel in Port-au-Prince, a Marriott owned by Denis O’Brien, who has given $10 million to $25 million to the Clinton Foundation. O’Brien, an Irish billionaire who runs the Jamaica-based telecom giant Digicel, said he financed the hotel himself.

    Or do we only care about Haiti when it's an excuse to gripe about Trump?

    Duvaliers were nothing on the scale of corruption compared to the Clintons.
