Hillary Clinton's Brother & Rare Gold Mining Permit

Tony Rodham is the youngest brother of Hillary Rodham Clinton. He is a former repo man, prison guard and private detective who used to work to secure foreign financing for a company. In October 2013, Tony Rodham joined the advisory board of VCS Mining, a Delaware-based company that was planning a gold mine in the Cap-Haïtien and was awarded the contract for carrying mining activities. It was a both lucrative and controversial deal, because Haiti has an estimated gold reserve of about $20 billion and the permit for mining was not issued to anyone in the last 50 years.

Hillary Clinton held responsible for Haiti recovery setback

Even six years after the massive earthquake, many people in Haiti continue to hold that Hillary Clinton's State Department and the Clinton Foundation are responsible for a recovery effort that cost billions, but yielded a very little return. The Haitians often claim that earthquake aid money was mismanaged and lucrative deals went to Clinton cronies. To make room for Caracol Industrial Park, a Clintons' signature project in Haiti valuing $224 million, 366 farmers were evicted, valuable agricultural lands were acquired and as per late 2015, it created only 5,000 jobs instead of 60,000 promised jobs.

Chelsea Clinton told Haitian Women to Be More Independent

On July 28, 2015, as part of a two day solo trip to Haiti, Chelsea Clinton visited Port-au-Prince with a group of investors and philanthropists to oversee the projects financed by the Clinton Foundation. The Clinton Foundation was founded by Bill Clinton after leaving the White House. Former President Bill Clinton has made nearly 36 trips to Haiti, for a total of 56 days since 2009.

As per foundation's statement, they have raised over $30 million since the devastating 2010 earthquake. However, such fund raisings became a subject of intense scrutiny since Hillary Rodham decided to run for the White House. During her trip, Chelsea met local farmers, artisans, hospital patients to gain a deeper understanding so that the foundation's initiatives can serve the intended beneficiaries in a better way. The mission of Chelsea's trip was to bring awareness on the effects of climate change, women's empowerment through education, developing and implementation of different health programs and economic growth. While overseeing projects financed by Clinton Foundation, she has encouraged women to educate themselves and learn how to become more independent. Chelsea Clinton also hosted a meeting with the foundation President Donna Shalala to talk about the role of Haitian women and their access to the market. After the meeting Shalala has said, Chelsea was impressed not just with the foundation's work, but with efforts by Haitian women to take control of their lives.

Chelsea Clinton emailed Dad, Mom on Haitian relief concerns

One of the 4,368 documents released from presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's personal email server shows an email from her daughter Chelsea Clinton addressed to "Dad" and "Mom" explaining her concerns about the Haitian relief efforts.

Chelsea went on to say that: "If we do not quickly change the organization, management, accountability and delivery paradigm on the ground, we could quite conceivably confront tens of thousands of children's deaths by diarrhea, dysentery, typhoid and other water-related diseases in the near future"

The email is comprised of a seven page letter where she took her time to demonstrate the inability of the United nations to manage the recovery effort. The date this email was written is unknown; however, following the 2010 earthquake, Chelsea Clinton spent four days in Haiti working as a part of the relief effort.
