Hillary Clinton's brother Tony Rodham: I used the Clinton Foundation for deals

tonyandhillaryAccording to the New York Times, Hillary Clinton's brother Tony Rodham claims that he used the Clinton Foundation to make deals. He admit to this fact in legal documents uncovered by the New York Times.

"When Mr. Clinton worked as a co-chairman of Haiti’s earthquake recovery commission, Mr. Rodham and his partners sought a $22 million deal to rebuild homes in the country. In court proceedings three years ago in an unrelated lawsuit, Mr. Rodham explained how 'a guy in Haiti' had 'donated' 10,000 acres of land to him and described how he had leaned on Mr. Clinton to get the rebuilding project funded amid bureaucratic delays," the Times reported.

“I deal through the Clinton Foundation. That gets me in touch with the Haitian officials.

“I hound my brother-in-law, because it’s his fund that we’re going to get our money from. And he can’t do it until the Haitian government does it.

“And he keeps telling me, ‘Oh, it’s going to happen tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow.’ Well, tomorrow hasn’t come yet,” Rodham said, according to a transcript of his testimony.

The Times also reported that Bill Clinton helped his brother in-law get several jobs.

"When Mr. Rodham was short on cash in 2010, Mr. Clinton helped get him a job for $72,000 a year raising investments in GreenTech Automotive, an electric car company then owned by Terry McAuliffe, an old friend of Mr. Clinton’s and now the governor of Virginia," the Times reported.

“I was complaining to my brother-in-law I didn’t have any money. And he asked McAuliffe to give me a job,” Rodham said during his testimony.
