There’s a reason why the liberal elites are so concerned with philanthropy and handing out the contents of the US Treasury in the form of foreign aid. It’s a great way to skim, misappropriate, receive kickbacks, and generally pilfer and abuse one’s office without the American people finding out about it.
John Kerry and his daughter Vanessa, a medical doctor who interned with the Vaccine Fund of the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization, founded by the globalists at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, are allied with the UN in directing millions of dollars their way.
More than $9 million has been found its way through the filter of the Peace Corps into the coffers of a non-profited created and operated by the Secretary of State’s daughter. The State Department actually funded the program of its Secretary’s daughter.
The first award of $2 million went to the organization which is now called Seed Global Health for a three year contract period for which there was no competition. At the time John Kerry was a Senator who was the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which had oversight over both the Peace Corps and the State Department.
The organization obtained an four year extension and funding in the amount of $6.4 million, again without any competition, this time while John Kerry was Secretary of State. They also received an additional almost $1 million from “modifications” to the first award and other State Department funding.
The Daily Caller reports there was collusion that took place in setting up the funding which addressed and assured both the absence of any competition for the funds as well as their acceptance. A meeting between Kerry’s daughter Vanessa, two Peace Corps Directors, Buck Buckingham and Sarah Morgenthau, and Ambassador Eric Goosby, who was then the head of the Office of the US Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC).
The DC cites the minutes of a meeting a month later which stated, “Buck obtained clarity of the mechanism by which federal money will be provided to” Seed. “The process can be fast tracked and non-competed through a specific grant mechanism.”
There are other concessions those under Kerry made to his daughter including the extension of the normal maximum time period of five years for a contract to a seven year, no compete special deal that was never justified or explained.
The State Department does appear to be the most vile rats nest in all of the federal government, outside of the White House and DHS. And it all gets back to the crooks who are running things and filling their pockets step of the way. There are more details at the Daily Caller at this link.
