Prime Minister of Bangladesh says Hillary Clinton Pressured Her to Do Favors for a Clinton Donor

Holy Clinton Cash Batman!

The Office of Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina claims that in 2011 the PM got a call from Secretary of State Hillary to pressure her to give Dr. Muhammed Yunus back his job as the head of Grameen Bank. At the same time the PM’s son who lives in the U.S. was threatened with IRS audit (or worse) if he didn’t try to convince his mother to give Yunus his job back.

While secretary of state, Hillary Clinton made a personal call to pressure Bangladesh’s prime minister to aid a donor to the Clinton Foundation, her husband’s charitable foundation:

The Office of Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina confirmed to Circa that Mrs. Clinton called her office in March 2011 to demand that Dr. Muhammed Yunus…be restored to his role as chairman of the country’s most famous microcredit bank, Grameen Bank. The bank’s nonprofit Grameen America, which Yunus chairs, has given between $100,000 and $250,000 to the Clinton Global Initiative.  Grameen Research, which is chaired by Yunus, has donated between $25,000 and $50,000, according to the Clinton Foundation website

“Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton telephoned Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in March 2011 insisting her not to remove Dr. Muhammad Yunus from the post of Managing Director of Grameen Bank,” Deputy Press Secretary Md Nazrul Islam told Circa in an email.
