- October 19, 2016

In The Hours After The Deadly 2010 Haiti Earthquake, Clinton Aides At The State Department Gave Instructions To Give Friends Of Bill ‘Special Attention’

The 2010 Haiti Earthquake Leveled Much Of The Haitian Capital And Killed An Estimated 200,000 People. “The correspondence paints a picture of the chaotic first days after the earthquake leveled much of the Haitian capital and claimed an estimated 200,000 lives. One series of messages chronicles efforts by billionaire Denis O’Brien, a longtime donor to the Clinton Foundation and the CEO of the Jamaica-based telecom firm Digicel, to fly relief supplies into Port-au-Prince and get employees of his company out.” (Matthew Mosk, Brian Ross, Brian Epstein, & Cho Park, “'FOBS': How Hillary's State Dept.

State Department Personnel Gave Special Attention To “Friends Of Bill Clinton” In The Immediate Aftermath Of The Haitian Earthquake. “In a series of candid email exchanges with top Clinton Foundation officials during the hours after the massive 2010 Haiti earthquake, a senior aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton repeatedly gave special attention to those identified by the abbreviations ‘FOB’ (friends of Bill Clinton) or ‘WJC VIPs’ (William Jefferson Clinton VIPs).” (Matthew Mosk, Brian Ross, Brian Epstein, & Cho Park, “'FOBS': How Hillary's State Dept. Gave Special Attention To 'Friends Of Bill' After Haiti Quake,” ABC News, 10/11/16)

A Senior State Department Aide Gave Instructions To “Flag When People Are Friends Of WJC.” “‘Need you to flag when people are friends of WJC,’ wrote Caitlin Klevorick, then a senior State Department official who was juggling incoming offers of assistance being funneled to the State Department by the Clinton Foundation. ‘Most I can probably ID but not all.’” (Matthew Mosk, Brian Ross, Brian Epstein, & Cho Park, “'FOBS': How Hillary's State Dept. Gave Special Attention To 'Friends Of Bill' After Haiti Quake,” ABC News, 10/11/16)

Multiple Clinton Foundation Donors Were Given Special Access To Senior Government Officials After They Were Designated “Friends Of Bill”

Denis O’ Brien, Founder And CEO Of Digicel And Longtime Donor To The Clinton Foundation, Needed Help Getting Supplies Into Haiti So He Reached Out To Bill Clinton Aide Doug Band. “One series of messages chronicles efforts by billionaire Denis O’Brien, a longtime donor to the Clinton Foundation and the CEO of the Jamaica-based telecom firm Digicel, to fly relief supplies into Port-au-Prince and get employees of his company out. ‘This WJC VIP just called again from Jamaica to say Digicel is being pushed by US Army to get comms back up but is not being cleared by [the U.S. government] to deploy into Haiti to do so,’ Desai wrote in an email with the subject line ‘Close friend of Clintons.’ Later, O’Brien writes to longtime Clinton aide Doug Band to express frustration. ‘We’re finding it impossible to get landing slots,’ he says. ‘I’m sorry to bother you but I am not making any progress through conventional channels.’” (Matthew Mosk, Brian Ross, Brian Epstein, & Cho Park, “’FOBS’: How Hillary’s State Dept. Gave Special Attention To ‘Friends Of Bill’ After Haiti Quake,” ABC News, 10/11/16)

Band Wrote To A Clinton Foundation Staffer To ‘Get On This.’ “Band tasks Desai to ‘pls get on this,’ telling O’Brien, ‘Never a bother.’” (Matthew Mosk, Brian Ross, Brian Epstein, & Cho Park, “’FOBS’: How Hillary’s State Dept. Gave Special Attention To ‘Friends Of Bill’ After Haiti Quake,” ABC News, 10/11/16)

The Clinton Foundation Forwarded The Request To The State Department And The Request Was Pushed Up The Chain Of Command At USAID. “Desai then turns to Klevorick to help ‘a friend of President Clinton,’ and the request is pushed up the chain of command to USAID officials organizing the relief effort.” (Matthew Mosk, Brian Ross, Brian Epstein, & Cho Park, “’FOBS’: How Hillary’s State Dept. Gave Special Attention To ‘Friends Of Bill’ After Haiti Quake,” ABC News, 10/11/16)

A State Department Aide Fielded A Request From A Board Member Of The Clinton Foundation, Rolando Gonzalez-Bunster, Who Has Business Interests In The Caribbean. “Klevorick also fielded several requests for Rolando Gonzalez-Bunster, a board member of the Clinton Foundation who has business interests in power plants in the neighboring Dominican Republic and other nearby countries.” (Matthew Mosk, Brian Ross, Brian Epstein, & Cho Park, “’FOBS’: How Hillary’s State Dept. Gave Special Attention To ‘Friends Of Bill’ After Haiti Quake,” ABC News, 10/11/16)

Bunster Sent An Email With The Subject Line ‘CLINTON FRIEND/WANTING INFO’ Asking For Information About Haiti’s Power Grid. “In an email sent just days after the quake, with the subject line, ‘CLINTON FRIEND/WANTING INFO,’ Bunster asks for detailed satellite imagery of the Haitian power grid after the earthquake to help ‘do a reconnaissance of the status of the transmission and distribution lines and power plants.’” (Matthew Mosk, Brian Ross, Brian Epstein, & Cho Park, “’FOBS’: How Hillary’s State Dept. Gave Special Attention To ‘Friends Of Bill’ After Haiti Quake,” ABC News, 10/11/16)

Bunster’s Request Was Sent To A Top USAID Official With The Notation That He Was A Close Friend Of Bill ‘Dating Back To Georgetown.’ “In another email, Klevorick alerts a top USAID official of the request, referring to Bunster as a ‘close friend of the Secretary and Former President dating back to [their college years at] Georgetown.’” (Matthew Mosk, Brian Ross, Brian Epstein, & Cho Park, “’FOBS’: How Hillary’s State Dept. Gave Special Attention To ‘Friends Of Bill’ After Haiti Quake,” ABC News, 10/11/16)

Garry Mauro, A Former Chairman Of President Clinton’s Campaigns, Sent A Request On Behalf Of A Contractor To The Clinton Foundation That Was Forwarded To The State Department In An Email Noting That Mauro Was A Friend Of Bill. “Desai forwarded a note to Klevorick from Garry Mauro, who served twice as the Texas state chairman for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaigns and has donated $25,000 to $50,000 to the Clinton Foundation. The offer was for ‘major assets in Haiti’ from a company called DRC Emergency Services. On its website, the company boasts of having performed emergency response work at disasters around the globe, with over $2 billion in disaster response contracts. Desai noted that Mauro was ‘a friend of WJC.’” (Matthew Mosk, Brian Ross, Brian Epstein, & Cho Park, “’FOBS’: How Hillary’s State Dept. Gave Special Attention To ‘Friends Of Bill’ After Haiti Quake,” ABC News, 10/11/16)

The State Department Aide Who Received The Email From The Clinton Foundation Noted That The Sender Was Also A ‘Friend’ Of Hillary. “Klevorick replied, ‘also note hrc friend,’ using initials for Hillary Rodham Clinton. The email chain does not indicate if Mauro’s recommendation led to a contract for DRC, though the company’s website states, ‘Within 24 hours of the earthquake’s occurrence, DRC assembled and mobilized a team of highly experienced and dedicated personnel to Port-au-Prince and the surrounding areas.’” (Matthew Mosk, Brian Ross, Brian Epstein, & Cho Park, “’FOBS’: How Hillary’s State Dept.
