(Believe It or Not) Haiti Official, Who Exposed The Clinton Foundation, Found Dead In Miami

Haiti Official, Who Exposed The Clinton Foundation, Found Dead In Miami

Klaus Eberwein, a former Haitian government official who was expected to expose the extent of Clinton Foundation corruption and malpractice next week, has been found dead in Miami. He was 50.

Eberwein was due to appear next Tuesday before the Haitian Senate Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission where he was widely expected to testify that the Clinton Foundation misappropriated Haiti earthquake donations from international donors.

According to Miami-Dade’s medical examiner records supervisor, the official cause of death is “gunshot to the head“. Eberwein’s death has been registered as “suicide.”

*

According to Eberwein, a paltry 0.6% of donations granted by international donors to the Clinton Foundation with the express purpose of directly assisting Haitians actually ended up in the hands of Haitian organizations. A further 9.6% ended up with the Haitian government. The remaining 89.8% – or $5.4 billion – was funneled to non-Haitian organizations.

Just another guy with a connection to the Clinton's who just up and 'fostered' himself. Those people sure do seem to be bad luck. Or terminally depressing, to say the least.

"Haiti Official" seems an understated phrase but I don't know. Why would he suicide before testifying, it does not appear as if he didn't have power and money, and popularity? From the archive link(s):

The former director general of Haiti, who also served as an advisor to Haitian President Michel Martelly, was also a partner in a popular pizza restaurant in Haiti, Muncheez, and even has a pizza — the Klaus Special — named after him.

What I do know is it really stinks P U ! The stench cloud around Clintons and Wasserman-Schultz is quite something. eXperience Florida lately? sheesh

Bailly said he last spoke to Eberwein, 50, two weeks ago and he was in good spirits. They were working on opening a Muncheez restaurant in Sunrise, he said.

Doesn't sound too bummed out to me, escecially with that business name. RIP Klaus Eberwein.

@on the cusp thanks, kinda peaked that rabbit hole a little: https://www.miamidade.gov/medicalexaminer/about-us.asp

About Us
The Medical Examiner Department exists to provide medicolegal investigative services for the citizens of Miami-Dade County. The work of the department focuses on what is generally termed “forensic pathology.” This field of study combines the efforts of legal and police investigations with those of medicine and science to ascertain the facts surrounding deaths, particularly the cause and manner of death.

Our department interrelates with many other groups and federal agencies, such as F.B.I., N.T.S.B. (for National Transportation Safety Board), F.A.A., State Attorney’s and Public Defender’s Offices, police departments, medical offices and hospitals, funeral homes, and the media. The Medical Examiner Department employs approximately eighty-three persons in its various bureaus, which include: pathology, toxicology, medical records, morgue, photography, investigations, and indigent cremation service.
...

Does not sound like "working independently" is an option there. Too big, too many agencies connected. Huh.

Our Mission Statement
The mission of the Medical Examiner Department is to provide accurate, timely, dignified, compassionate and professional death investigative services for the citizens of Miami-Dade County, together with education, consultation and research for local and national medical, legal, academic and law enforcement communities.

Sounds like another "mission accomplished" suppression of evidence goal achieved. Corruption rules?

There's a Commission too, but outrage fatigue leaves me too tired to dig around more right now: http://www.fdle.state.fl.us/cms/MEC/MEC-Home.aspx

@edg I had not heard about his financial troubles when I made that comment.
So, let's get back to profound depression, fear of prosecution as possible or probable reasons to off oneself.
Those causes for suicide are pretty common.
That little niggling thing in my head about something being strange is that he might have been called to testify to his own wrongdoing, simultaneously implicating the Clinton Foundation in the process, but the Foundation is now the sole beneficiary of his death, as regards his testimony.
More simply said, they really caught a break.
Very lucky.

@on the cusp was Klaus Eberwein talking at a Manhattan protest, from the first link.

“The Clinton Foundation, they are criminals, they are thieves, they are liars, they are a disgrace,” Eberwein said at a protest outside the Clinton Foundation headquarters in Manhattan last year.

I do not like killing the messenger, so to speak. Let the evidence become public, then decide. Until then speculation is what's asked for and given, not assumptions. heh
The Clinton Foundation Reeks of Crooks, Thieves, and Hoods

Claudio Osorio was CEO of Innovida, a Florida-based building-materials company on whose board Jeb Bush served. Osorio was a major fundraiser for Hillary’s 2008 campaign and financially supported the Clinton Global Initiative. While Hillary was at State, Innovida scored a $10 million federal loan to build 500 homes in Haiti after its severe 2010 earthquake. Alas, those residences never were constructed. Osorio was convicted of financial fraud, namely using humanitarian assistance “for his and his co-conspirators’ personal benefit,” prosecutors said. Osorio is currently serving twelve years in federal prison.

Oppposition research is great when everyone is the opposition, that's about where I am right now. Clinton State Department was a disgrace to humanity, Clintons should be in jail for what they did and didn't do, that's what I think.

Also, coincidently, "It can't happen here" (same source). I wonder what the odds of this were in the betting pool?
One would hope that the identities of anybody scheduled to testify as to any corruption even remotely related to those two would be kept totally sekret, but, such sekrecy would be unthinkable and hence all such persons are at risk.

I keep trying to remind myself that deaths of persons somehow tangentially related to a individual or firm are to be expected with no doubt greater frequency than one would initially surmise and all that statistical oddity stuff. No doubt the greater the prominence of the central hub, the more numerous and lengthy the spokes on a chart of such an effect, but suicide and murder are not simple deaths, and are, as things go, are vastly more rare. I can think of many somehow related to me who are gone even though I have never had any huge network of friends, acquaintances and other linkages, but none, afaik, by their own hand or that of an assassin. I suspect that a true population analysis would find this pair to be a major outlier, no doubt below the apex involving folks like Idi Amin, Lavrenti Beria, or major mob bosses, but far closer to such folks than to ordinary individuals and even ordinary "rich and famous" persons.

@dkmich Every suicide or murder or accident of people connected to Clinton activities provides a benefit to the Clintons. Every single one of them.
I guess that is the coincidence that sends me down the path that they are responsible for these deaths.

Former Haiti government official shoots himself in the head in Miami-area hotel

***

But it appears that Eberwein had fallen on hard times. An Uber spokesperson confirmed that he worked as a driver for awhile in South Florida.

During and after his government tenure, Eberwein faced allegations of fraud and corruption on how the agency he headed administered funds. Among the issues was FAES’ oversight of shoddy construction of several schools built after Haiti’s devastating Jan. 12, 2010, earthquake.

before the Haitian Senate’s Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, the head of the commission, Sen. Evalière Beauplan confirmed. The commission is investigating the management of PetroCaribe funds, the money Haiti receives from Venezuela’s discounted oil program.

I think that's more reliable maybe.

How can this happen? It's so stereotypical. I like my crime/political 'drama' more in the vein of LeCarre, not Clouseau.

His Twitter account had regular posts every few days through May 30th, then only 1 post in June and none in July. I wonder if his last post quoting Randy Pausch was prophetic:

"We can not change the cards we are dealt, but we control how we play the hand."-- Randy Pausch

It sounds like something a person in serious trouble might think about while contemplating suicide. That being said, however, it certainly is amazing how many people associated with the Clinton's end up dead. What a coincidence!

A simple search for Clinton foundation Haiti scandal will bring up a ton of links that shows that both of them committed massive monetary fraud after the earthquake.

Bill used his connections to get his friends lucrative deals and they then donated millions to his foundation.

Hillary used her position as Secretary of State to defraud the Haitians and meddle in their elections. Her calling Trump out for colluding with Russia is a joke.

This article explains how the Clinton foundation is a "charity fraud of epic proportions.

"Clinton Foundation Is Charity Fraud Of Epic Proportions", Analyst Charges In Stunning Takedown

In one of the many articles I have read, it said that if the Clinton foundation was audited, it would bring down governments, including ours.

She whored her foundation to everyone she could during her time as SOS and Obama and congress knew it.

If they had been able to return to the WH, the things that Trump and his brood are doing would pale in comparison to what the Clintons would have done and no one would even question it because they have snowed people into believing that their charity is saving lives.
Just as the people who are living in tents in Haiti 7 years after the earthquake would tell you.

Where the hell is the billions that were donated to the Bill and George clown show?
