Well, the story has been out there for awhile, but only recently has the Uzbekistan story (or at least a good size portion of the whole story) been pieced together (thanks to Peter Schweizer in “Clinton Cash”).
Back in 2009, Harpers posted a story questioning former President William Jefferson Clinton’s judgment in posing with Gulnara Karimova, daughter of Uzbekistan’s strongman, Islam Karimova.
There were the troubling links with Karimova to the Clinton Foundation and the Russian mafia: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/06/18/googoosha-uzbek-dictator-s-daughter-is-a-disco-queen.html
Now we know some more of the story. Karimova hosted a Clinton Foundation fundraiser in Monaco with the aim of influencing former President Clinton…..in order to gain favor with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Schweizer notes that in a State Department cable, the State Department identifies the rare openness in which access to the Clintons is thought to be a way to boost personal fortunes. Karimova clearly thought that Hillary could be influenced through Bill and through the Foundation
Since this time, Karimova has fallen out of favor with her father and is under house arrest.
Yet, did Karimov’s daughter knew something back in 2009 that Americans are just beginning to find out?
More to follow………
