Scientific Report Was Doctored.
Clinton Foundation officials gave PolitiFact a doctored version of a 2008 memo lauding its HIV/AIDS program presumably to defend against congressional charges that the charity distributed “watered down” drugs to poor patients on the African continent, according to new information acquired by The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.
The altered memo went to PolitiFact Sept. 21, three days after TheDCNF published a story titled, “Clinton Foundation AIDS Program Distributed ‘Watered-Down’ Drugs To Third World Countries.” (DAILYCALLER)
HIV Medicine Was Watered Down.
Former President Bill Clinton and his Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) distributed “watered-down” HIV/AIDs drugs to patients in sub-Saharan Africa, and “likely increased” the risks of morbidity and mortality, according to a draft congressional report obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
The congressional report, titled,“The Clinton Foundation and The India Success Story,” was initiated by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican and vice-chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. (DAILYCALLER)
CHAI Was Found Guilty On 7 Criminal Accounts
The main claim to fame of the CHAI scam was an AIDS drug produced by the Indian pharmaceutical company Ranbaxy.
But the AIDS drug being manufactured by Ranbaxy had major quality control issues – issues that were known to the Clinton’s CHAI initiative. The FDA had sent a warning letter to the company telling it that it had major quality control issues.
The reason that the US FDA sent their warning to a company based in India was because CHAI was using hundreds of millions of dollars of US money appropriated under President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) to pay Ranbaxy for the drugs.
The Ranbaxy drug scam involved them selling an adulterated, or ‘watered down’, version of the drug so the company could minimize manufacturing expenses and increase profits.
They calculated the downside of their scam in quite cold blooded terms. They figured that since the primary recipients of the watered down AIDS drug were people in Third World countries, who would soon be dead anyway because the drug was so diluted that it would not protect them, the chances of anyone being around long enough to sue them were very slight.
Eventually the scam came to light and Ranbaxy ultimately pleaded guilty in 2013 to seven criminal counts with intent to defraud and the introduction of adulterated drugs into interstate commerce.
The Department of Justice further levied a $500 million fine and forfeiture on the company. (TRUMPREPORT)
