Three men, including a top donor to former president William J. Clinton and twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary R. Clinton, were indicted for defrauding the United States in order to win a huge Pentagon contract.

“Three men were charged in an indictment returned Nov. 27 for their roles in a scheme to defraud U.S. Military contracts in Afghanistan, engaging in illegal commerce in Iran, and laundering money internationally. Their conduct was in connection to two multi-million dollar contracts to provide supplies and logistical support to U.S. troops in Afghanistan.,” according to a Justice Department statement from last week.

One of the men, Abul Huda Farouki, was the chief executive officer of Anham FZCO, a defense contractor that secured an $8 billion contract from the Pentagon to supply food and equipment to U.S. in 2011 while Clinton was Secretary of State. The company did so by lying.

“The indictment alleges that the defendants schemed to defraud the Department of Defense in connection with the SPV-A contract by submitting bids that contained knowingly false estimates of the completion dates for the warehouses and by providing the government with misleading photographs intended to convey that Anham’s progress on the warehouses was further along than it actually was,” according to the DOJ statement.

Farouki also cut down on his overhead by shipping the supplies through Iran instead of using more costly but legal routes, which was a violation of U.S. sanctions.

According to OpenSecrets, Farouki and his wife have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Democrats, including the Clintons and former President Barack H. Obama. Hillary Clinton’s habit of awarding government contracts to large donors was well documented in the book/movie “Clinton Cash.”

Farouki’s company claimed that it was unaware that its supplies were being shipped through Iran. He and his two co-defendants have all been charged with “two counts of major fraud, one count of conspiracy to violate the restrictions on doing business with Iran, four counts of substantive violations of those restrictions, and one count of conspiracy to commit international money laundering,” and have pleaded not guilty.

    She gave contracts and other favors to many people that would and did give huge amounts of money to her and Bill. I was called pay to play. When is she going to be charged for some of her crimes. I want to be ready to cheer and clap.
