Rodham Asked for Help With Haiti Project

Hillary Clinton’s brother Tony Rodham allegedly asked Bill Clinton to help push through a $22 million deal to rebuild homes in Haiti while the former president served as co-chairman of the country’s earthquake recovery commission, The New York Times reported Sunday. Though the project never happened, Rodham said “a guy in Haiti” had “donated” 10,000 acres to him and he asked his brother-in-law to help break through the red tape to get the project funded, according to a transcript of his testimony from an unrelated lawsuit three years ago. The Clinton Foundation said it was not aware of Rodham’s Haiti project and it had not been directly involved with any housing projects in the country other than backing a housing exposition. The statement also noted that Rodham’s project was not among the more than 300 proposals submitted for consideration for the exposition.
