We recently told you about a story the mainstream media has completely ignored. It seems the State Department funneled millions of dollars to a non-profit run by John Kerry’s daughter.
Now we have an update. Kerry apparently knew about this.
The Daily Caller reports:
John Kerry Knew The State Department Funneled Millions To His Daughter’s Charity
Secretary of State John Kerry lauded a program run by his daughter’s nonprofit as he announced an extension of its non-competitively awarded Department of State funding in 2014, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.
“What we’re talking about here is a multi-million dollar effort that will strengthen the capacity of healthcare workers to deliver lifesaving HIV services,” Kerry said in December 2014, at a World AIDS Day event. “[I]t will build on the Global Health Service Partnership with Peace Corps and Seed Global Health.”
The 2014 comments appear to conflict with more recent Department of State claims that Kerry “played no role” in official decisions to funnel more than $9 million in sole-source contracts with the nonprofit that recruits volunteer doctors and nurses to medical schools in Third World countries.
The $9 million went to Seed Global Health — a nonprofit founded and managed by Dr. Vanessa Kerry — through the Peace Corps. The funds were awarded under the Global Health Service Partnership (GHSP) that Kerry’s daughter created in conjunction with officials from both agencies. The agencies then funded the nonprofit organization they helped bring into being.
Nothing to see here, folks. Just another Democrat using the State Department to enrich his own family members.
Do you think the media would ignore this if Republicans were doing it?
Not a chance.
