Geography Note

The Dominican Republic and Haiti share the same island, known as Hispaniola, in the Caribbean Sea. As they share the same island, crimes that involve one of the countries often involves the other, such as convicted child trafficker Laura Silsby who attempted to traffic children from Haiti to the Dominican Republic.

Relationship to #Pizzagate

Connection to the Clinton Foundation

In the Dominican Republic, where 1 in 3 citizens is poor,[3] the government donated between $10 and $25 million to the Clinton Foundation.

From the National Review article, The Other Problem with Hillary’s Foreign Donors, by Brendan Bordelon, published on March 16th, 2015:[4]

The Dominican Republic gave a much larger donation to the Clinton Foundation, somewhere between $10 and $25 million in a grant to the organization’s HIV/AIDS program (the Foundation’s website does not provide exact grant numbers). The Caribbean nation received $35.5 million from the U.S. government in 2010, and the next year raked in $225 million from foreign governments around the world.

One of eight Clinton Foundation HIV/AIDS Initiative offices is located in the Dominican Republic.

“It is unusual,” said Daniel Drezner, a professor at Tufts University who has written about the conflicts of interest that could arise from foreign governments donating to American think-tanks. “If you look at the controversy involving think-tank funding,” he told NR, “I think all of the donors are essentially countries with a significant amount of surplus revenue. They’re countries that aren’t, by and large, accepting foreign aid — they’re usually donors of foreign aid.”

But unlike a think-tank, Drezner added, the Clinton Foundation “actually has the capacity to do something on the development side. That, at least, has the veneer of making more sense.”

Historically, though, in the very rare instances when the Dominican and Algerian governments have diverted their foreign aid to charity, political motives — as opposed to humanitarian concerns – were the driving force behind the donations.
