Couldn’t Barack Obama have found ONE honest person to serve as his Secretary of State?
We all know about Hillary Clinton’s lies, deceit, and “pay to play” politics when she held the position.
But former Secretary of State John Kerry may not have been much better.
It’s a story that has flown almost completely under the media radar.
But Kerry and his family are being accused of treating the State Department as their own person piggy bank.
Now the U.S. Attorney’s Office is coming forward with PROOF.
In exchange for immunity, a former senior Peace Corps official has agreed to cooperate with all law enforcement investigations surrounding a scheme that allegedly funneled millions of Department of State dollars to a nonprofit founded and run by Kerry’s daughter.
But we’re sure Kerry didn’t know a thing about that, right?
As first reported by The Daily Caller, Warren “Buck” Buckingham agreed to cooperate as a condition of an agreement with the Washington, D.C., U.S. Attorney’s Office that would keep him from facing prosecution for a related illegal lobbying charge.
Buckingham was allegedly involved in a scheme that steered millions in State Department contract money to Seed Global Health, a nonprofit founded and run by Kerry’s DAUGHTER Vanessa Kerry.
The total of the contracts and extensions reportedly exceeded $9 million.
And all this happened while Kerry was Secretary of State.
Conflict of interest? Yeah, we’d say so.
But it gets worse.
After Buckingham helped steer contracts to Kerry’s daughter, Kerry’s State Department gave Buckingham a job as a consultant.
Talk about a “you scratch my back, and I’ll scratch yours” situation!
We shouldn’t be surprised that Kerry is involved in such a scandal. After all, he has a history of bending the truth to make himself look good.
Remember the Swift Boat scandal, where fellow veterans accused him of embellishing his military heroics?
Regardless, Buckingham’s testimony could ruin Kerry’s reputation and political career forever. Buckingham has agreed to “disclose all factual information” surrounding the scheme, including “any document, record or other tangible evidence.”
This is just another example of the ineptitude of Obama’s presidency. Under his watch, the nation’s top diplomats consistently lied to, and STOLE from, the American people.
Truly a disgrace!
