Clinton Campaign Won't Be Able To Cover Up This Foundation Scandal

The Clinton Foundation with their Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) has been providing HIV/AIDS drugs to patients in third world nations since 2002. New accusations say that the drugs they sent were deliberately watered down and may not have saved as many lives as the foundation claims.

According to a congressional report, Tennessee Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn reports that CHAI worked with and even promoted drug manufacturers Ranbaxy. In 2013, the company pleaded guilty to defrauding people by selling adulterated drugs.

“When companies sell adulterated drugs, they undermine the integrity of the FDA’s approval process and may cause patients to take drugs that are substandard, ineffective, or unsafe,” said Stuart F. Delery, acting assistant attorney general for the civil division of the Department of Justice.

If CHAI distributed adulterated HIV/AIDS drugs to third world nations, this can shed a light of serious suspicion on the initiative. As Clinton heads full-speed into the home stretch of her presidential campaign, this kind of scrutiny may stir up more controversy for the former Secretary of State.

“The question becomes, ‘how many people lost their lives, how many people found it was a false promise,’” said Blackburn during an interview with the DCNF.

“Substandard HIV medicines cause health problems for patients, perhaps even accelerating death from HIV-related infections,” said economist Roger Bate to the DCNF. “These drugs allow [the white blood cell and platelet counts] to stabilize and essentially provide immunity to patients. If the content of the medicine is not what is listed on the label, you will not see the platelet levels or the WBC levels stabilize."

Blackburn says in her report that the Clinton Foundation offered 'false hopes' to poor people in desperate situations. It did benefit the Clinton Foundation, however, and helped them gain numerous donors from companies that enjoyed massive profits from selling their drugs.
