The leaks from Wikileaks need to be measured in light of their source but the leaks are legitimate emails that no one is denying. A new leak revives the once-buried scandal of Iraqgate which ties the Clintons to Saddam Hussein through a French company. That wasn’t the highlight of the revelation. The highlight was that Hillary takes donations from that same French cement company called LaFarge and they are in turn doing business with Isis.
The bottom line is that the woman, who did not safeguard her emails and was probably hacked by bad actors, takes money from anyone, even companies that do business with Isis and the late Saddam Hussein.
The leak from the far-left Wikileaks about Iraqgate follows and she did indeed hold the position and this was a “scandal” of sorts:
Hillary held positions on the corporate board of directors of Lafarge (1990–92). La Farge is a regular donor to the Clinton Foundation. She did legal work for the firm in the 1980s. During her connection to Lafarge, the firm was implicated in facilitating a CIA-backed covert arms export network to Saddam Hussein..
Under her tenure, Lafarge’s Ohio subsidiary was caught burning hazardous waste to fuel cement plants. Clinton defended the decision at the time.
Then just before her husband, Bill Clinton, was elected president in 1992, Lafarge was fined $1.8 million by the Environmental Protection Agency for these pollution violations. Hillary Clinton had left the board of Lafarge in spring, just after her husband won the Democrat nomination. A year later, under Bill’s presidency, the Clinton administration reduced Lafarge’s EPA fine to less than $600,000.
In the late 1980s, according to an archived investigative report in the American Spectator, Hillary Clinton was connected to Lafarge when the firm was involved in facilitating CIA support for Saddam Hussein’s secret weapons programme.
The American Spectator report from November 1996 cited sources confirming that Hillary Clinton did legal work for Lafarge in the late 1980s before she became a director. The report also claimed that Lafarge’s US subsidiary: provided key services for the covert arms export network that supplied Saddam Hussein.
To prevent exposure of that secret supply line, and collateral damage to Hillary Clinton – who joined Lafarge board in 1990, just as the arms pipeline was being shut down… the Justice Department was told to bury the investigation… But investigators from other US government agencies who worked on the case say they were ‘waved off’ whenever they got too close to exposing the direct involvement of the intelligence community in the arms export scheme.
Lafarge remains close to the Clintons to this day.
In 2013, Lafarge’s Executive Vice President for Operations, Eric Olson, was a ‘featured attendee’ at the Clinton Global Initiative’s annual meeting.
The following comes from Global Research and The Canary and elaborates on the current situation with Isis:
According to investigative reports by the Syrian opposition website Zaman al-Wasl and Le Monde, Lafarge operated a cement works in Jalabiya, which came under Islamic State group control in 2013. Emails obtained by both sources show that the company arranged deals with the IS group to ensure continued production and circulation of its cement. Headquarters knew about the deal, they reported.
Le Monde also reported last month that Lafarge paid taxes and bought licences from the group’s oil traders, and Zaman Al-Wasl reported in February that the company regularly bought the jihadist group’s oil.
Lafarge is back in the news because Paris is now doing business with the company, paying Lafarge to supply the sand for its popular “Paris Plage” pop-up beaches on the banks of the Seine. Parisians have already launched a petition with almost 40,000 signatures to demand the city boycott the cement company once and for all.
The company is a regular donor to the Clinton Foundation – the firm’s up to $100,000 donation was listed in its annual donor list for 2015. Lafarge is also listed again as a donor to the Clinton Foundation for the first quarter of 2016.
If you search through the Wikileaks emails, you will find the ties to LaFarge.
Julian Assange says the next leak will be the worst.

The American people need to know the truth no matter where it comes from but it’s up to readers to pursue their own research and make their own decisions.
Far-left journalist Glenn Greenwald said something that is exactly true today: “The U.S. media is essentially 100 percent united, vehemently, against Trump, and preventing him from being elected president”. But he added….”the media coverage of Donald Trump is kind of hysterical and they fail to reach the voters.”
This is from someone who agrees with the media’s efforts to pick the winner and he might be right. The media might overplay their hand but they are united in destroying Trump. They are picking the next president.
