BREAKING: Retired U.S. Army Colonel Charged with Bribing Haiti Officials – Clinton Connections

The Haiti Swamp & D.C. Swamp Merge in this head-scratching game of Clue.

This is HUGE! Calling all anons!

CLINTON’S ARE THE KEYSTONE.

This indictment from 2017 may have snuck past many people, but it most definitely requires everyone’s attention. This is not a court case about one man and corrupt foreign officials.

The scope of this is staggering, and everyone should be following this court case closely.

This is a powerful web of corrupt politicians, civilians, foreign officials, and rivaling families from the Haiti swamp straight to the D.C. swamp.

This is a story you are going to want to read all the way to the end!

I have done extensive research on this court case, pulled every court document and posted it for you, connected all dots as best as possible, and leave you with a twist at the end.

I call on all anons and diggers to continue this dig and follow this case!

There is SO MUCH HERE. It is a goldmine of connections and offers a glimpse into how Haiti & D.C. cronies have operated.

This can be likened to a lengthy Q post…lots of answers, with some questions.

Why is this a MEDIA BLACKOUT?

Retired U.S. Army Colonel Charged with Bribing Haiti Officials – Clinton Connections

Corruption in Haiti must stop!! Corruption in D.C. must stop!!

I do believe the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation(s) are in fact the KEYSTONE. They are the CENTER, in Trumps own words. The map can be created branching out from them. All roads lead to the Clintons. I will be doing a future article on this and their multiple foundations.

PART I
The Haiti Swamp and D.C. Swamp Merge in this head-scratching game of Clue.
This indictment from 2017 may have snuck past many people, but it most definitely requires everyone’s attention. This is not a court case about one man and corrupt foreign officials. The scope of this is staggering, and everyone should be following this court case closely. This is a powerful web of corrupt politicians, civilians, foreign officials, and rivaling families from the Haiti swamp straight to the D.C. swamp. This is a story you are going to want to read all the way to the end!

THE FACTS:
1) On August 28, 2017 A criminal complaint was filed against Joseph Baptiste in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts, with an attached affidavit from Special Agent Garett Trombly. Also on August 28th a Government’s motion to seal was filed, entered and terminated.
2) On August 29, 2017 the Department of Justice put out a press release stating: Retired U.S. Army Colonel Charged with Conspiring to Bribe Senior Officials of The Republic of Haiti., Joseph Baptiste was arrested, and a notice of hearing for initial appearance was set for September 7th.
3) On September 7th a secured bond was set for $250,000.00.
4) On October 4, 2017 the Department of Justice put out a press release stating: Retired U.S. Army Colonel Indicted for Conspiring to Bribe Senior Government Officials of the Republic of Haiti. This is the 15-page indictment.
5) As of April 4, 2018 it is still in the “Status” stage, and the next court date has been set for April 24, 2018. However, within this mostly insignificant transcript of United States of America v. Joseph Baptiste, there was one interesting little nugget that the honorable judge says is “par for the course”.

6) April 24, 2018 is the next court date. I will be keeping close tabs on this case and will post all follow-ups, linking back to this article.

THE CASE:
Below is the content from the full press release from the Department of Justice: Retired U.S. Army Colonel Indicted for Conspiring to Bribe Senior Government Officials of the Republic of Haiti: [5]
A retired U.S. Army colonel was charged in an indictment filed today for his alleged role in a foreign bribery and money laundering scheme in connection with a planned $84 million port development project in Haiti.
Acting Assistant Attorney General Kenneth A. Blanco of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, Acting U.S. Attorney William D. Weinreb of the District of Massachusetts, Assistant Director Stephen Richardson of the FBI’s Criminal Investigative Division and Special Agent in Charge Harold M. Shaw of the FBI’s Boston Field Office made the announcement.
Joseph Baptiste, 64, of Fulton, Maryland, was charged with one count of conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the Travel Act, one count of violating the Travel Act and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering in an indictment filed in the District of Massachusetts.
The indictment alleges that Baptiste solicited bribes from undercover FBI agents in Boston who posed as potential investors in connection with a proposed project to develop a port in the Moles Saint Nicolas area of Haiti. According to the indictment, the proposed project was expected to cost approximately $84 million, and was to involve the construction of a cement factory in its first phase. The indictment alleges that during a recorded meeting at a Boston-area hotel, Baptiste told the agents that he would funnel the payments to Haitian officials through a non-profit entity that he controlled — which was based in Maryland and purported to help impoverished residents of Haiti — in order to secure government approval of the project.
The indictment further alleges that in telephone calls Baptiste discussed bribing an aide to a senior Haitian official by giving him a job on the port development project after he left his position. It further alleges that although Baptiste ultimately used for personal purposes approximately $50,000 that he received from the undercover agents for the payment of bribes to Haitian officials — money that was wired at Baptiste’s direction to a non-profit organization he controls — he intended to seek additional money from the undercover agents to use for future bribe payments in connection with the port project.
An indictment is merely an allegation and all defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
This case was investigated by the FBI. Trial Attorney Kevin R. Gingras of the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section and Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen E. Frank of the District of Massachusetts are prosecuting the case.

Foreign Corrupt Practices Act

An Overview
The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977, as amended, 15 U.S.C. §§ 78dd-1, et seq. (“FCPA”), was enacted for the purpose of making it unlawful for certain classes of persons and entities to make payments to foreign government officials to assist in obtaining or retaining business. Specifically, the anti-bribery provisions of the FCPA prohibit the willful use of the mails or any means of instrumentality of interstate commerce corruptly in furtherance of any offer, payment, promise to pay, or authorization of the payment of money or anything of value to any person, while knowing that all or a portion of such money or thing of value will be offered, given or promised, directly or indirectly, to a foreign official to influence the foreign official in his or her official capacity, induce the foreign official to do or omit to do an act in violation of his or her lawful duty, or to secure any improper advantage in order to assist in obtaining or retaining business for or with, or directing business to, any person.
Since 1977, the anti-bribery provisions of the FCPA have applied to all U.S. persons and certain foreign issuers of securities. With the enactment of certain amendments in 1998, the anti-bribery provisions of the FCPA now also apply to foreign firms and persons who cause, directly or through agents, an act in furtherance of such a corrupt payment to take place within the territory of the United States.
The FCPA also requires companies whose securities are listed in the United States to meet its accounting provisions. See 15 U.S.C. § 78m. These accounting provisions, which were designed to operate in tandem with the anti-bribery provisions of the FCPA, require corporations covered by the provisions to (a) make and keep books and records that accurately and fairly reflect the transactions of the corporation and (b) devise and maintain an adequate system of internal accounting controls.  [4]

Must read CoreysDigs thread then below article. This has Clinton corruption written all over it.

I have followed this woman, Ezili Danto since the election. Very interesting interview Rodger did with her, you may recognize some names, you may have seen it ?

Investigate IBI Group for possible ties to Endeavour Finsncial or Endeavour Mining Capital (Frank Guistra).
Endeavour was formerly named Global Endeavor. After Golden Endeavor was listed in Paul Manafort’s indictment, it appears Golden Endeavour changed its name.

IBI was publicly traded company with silver, copper products. Guistra, mining magnate.. Researching Board of Directors And Advisors at Endeavour Financial is eye opening.
