American pastor who adopted Haitian kids and started non-profit (backed by the Clintons) arrested for child sex crimes

Share:

According to a report from the Daily Beast, on Thursday, March 9th, 43-year-old Corrigan Clay, an American pastor who allegedly moved to Haiti to teach impoverished residents marketable job skills, was arrested and is now facing U.S. charges for “engaging in illicit sexual conduct” with a child while living in Haiti.

Clay, who also adopted two Haitian orphans and opened an evangelical pre-school while over in Haiti, is now being prosecuted by the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section.

According to the indictment, which was filed in Pittsburgh federal court, Clay sexually abused the unidentified child from January 2014 to December 2017. No further details have yet been provided, other than the fact that the alleged victim was under 18-years-old.

Clay’s ex-wife, with whom he has two biological children with in addition to the pair they adopted, told the Daily Beast that the illicit conduct involved one of their own kids.

Shelley Jean Clay, who has been divorced from Clay for over a decade, declined to provide further details about the allegations, emphasizing that she was not involved and had no idea anything was even happening. She said in a statement:

“It was my child, but I don’t think I am at liberty to talk about it because the court case is in process. I’m not opposed to the truth coming out, but I don’t want to jeopardize the case.”

The ex-wife did not specify whether or not the alleged victim was one of her biological children or one of the adopted children.

Clay parted ways with his ministry, the Apparent Project, in 2013. The non-profit charity organization was established by him and Shelley. According to reports, the group had been visited and supported by former U.S. President Bill Clinton.

In a since-deleted blog post from Clay in 2012. He wrote:

“Donna Karen, The Gap, Macy’s Chan Luu, and Disney have marketed our jewelry, and our celebrity clients have included Bill Clinton, Oprah, Rainn Wilson, Olivia Wilde, Maria Bello, Petra Nemcova, Ben Stiller, and Kim Kardashian.”

The Apparent Project was designed to “establish childcare for working parents, quality early education, and job skills that provide opportunities for the poor in Haiti.”

Prior to starting their organization, Clay and Shelley left Washington State and headed to Haiti in 2008. Once there, they took jobs as “house parents” at an orphanage, where they were in charge of 25 boys ranging in age from seven to 17.

By 2016, the couple’s “desire to continue their care increased” and they opened the “AP Preschool.” According to federal authorities, by this time, Clay had already been abusing his victim for roughly three years.

As of late December 2021, the Apparent Project said it employed 25 Haitian teachers and support staff, had enrolled 70-plus Haitian children in its school, had more than 25 teens and adults participating in job training programs, and had enlisted a software engineer to teach Haitians how to code.

According to tax records, the project, which is still registered as a 501(c)3, has brought in annual donations as high as $715,000. In January 2021, child welfare authorities in Florida alleged that Clay had “abused” and “sexually assaulted” one of his underage children whom he had raised with ex-wife, Shelley.

As of this writing, Clay remains detained in a Pennsylvania jail pending a court hearing. If convicted, he faces up to 30 years in federal prison.

Rep. Jim Jordan confirms that Clinton campaign spying on Trump is worse than they could have thought

February 15th, 2022

On Sunday, February 13th, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) appeared on FNC’s “Fox & Friends Weekend,” and shared his thoughts on special counsel John Durham filing a motion in federal court alleging that Hilary Clinton’s political allies paid a contractor to spy on Donald Trump as a sitting president and as a candidate.

According to Breitbart News, Jordan acknowledged Durham’s findings backing Trump’s claim of being spied on from 2017 and former Attorney General Bill Barr’s contention of the Trump campaign being spied on in 2019.

He then added that it “was worse than we thought.”

Jordan called on Republicans to conduct a full investigation if they retake control of the House in November.

He said:

“They were creating the very news they were then tweeting about and trying to get the media to write about. This is, frankly, no different. It’s the template that the left uses, that the Democrats use.

It’s the same thing that happened four months ago when we found out the Department of Education went out and solicited the letter from the National School Board Association so they could do what they wanted to do, namely spy on parents.”

http://lawnft.celebrium.com/

He added:

“The same thing happened here and this is what’s so egregious and so wrong about it. They spied on a presidential campaign.

That’s as wrong as it gets. But then we found out from this filing that they actually spied on a sitting president, which is even worse.

So, this is just simply as wrong as it can possible be … We do need to investigate this stuff and get to every bit of information we can if, in fact, the people give us the majority here in a few months.”

Jordan said:

“President Trump was right. Remember back in 2017 when President Trump said, ‘They were spying on me’ and the press and Democrats said they weren’t.

And then in 2019, then-Attorney General Bill Barr said spying took place at the FBI on President Trump’s campaign and everyone said, ‘No, no, no.’ Well, now we know for sure. Now we know 100 percent.”

He concluded by saying:

“John Durham’s filing here, yep, there was spying going on and it was worse than we thought because they were spying on the sitting President of the United States and it goes right to the Clinton campaign. So, God bless John Durham and his investigation.

It’s taken a long time, but we’re getting to now what we all suspected. The only thing we didn’t understand was it was worse than we thought.”

Fox News reported that the filing from Durham found that lawyers for the Hilary Clinton campaign paid a technology company to “infiltrate” servers belonging to Trump Tower, and later the White House, in order to establish an “inference” and “narrative” to bring to government agencies linking Donald Trump to Russia.  The filing states:

“In connection with these efforts, Tech Executive-1 exploited his access to non-public and/or proprietary Internet data.

Tech Executive-1 also enlisted the assistance of researchers at a U.S.-based university who were receiving and analyzing large amounts of Internet data in connection with a pending federal government cybersecurity research contract.”

The filing added:

“Tech Executive-1 tasked these researchers to mine Internet data to establish ‘an inference’ and ‘narrative’ tying then-candidate Trump to Russia.

In doing so, Tech Executive-1 indicated that he was seeking to please certain ‘VIPS,’ referring to individuals at Law Firm-1 and the Clinton campaign.”

Convicted pedophile pleads guilty to helping funnel millions in foreign cash into Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign

January 18th, 2022

WASHINGTON D.C. – According to a report by The Intercept, George Nader, an American adviser to the government of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), has pleaded guilty for his role in helping UAE pump millions of dollars in illegal campaign contributions into the U.S. political system during the 2016 presidential election.

According to documents submitted in federal court in December 2021, federal prosecutors disclosed in a sentencing memo that Nader had agreed months earlier to plead guilty to a single count of felony conspiracy to defraud the U.S. government by funneling millions in donations to Hillary Clinton’s campaign and concealing the funds’ foreign origin.

Reportedly, Nader is a convicted pedophile and he was a central witness in former special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

According to the prosecutors’ sentencing memo, Nader conspired to hide the funds “out of a desire to lobby on behalf and advance the interests of his client, the government of the United Arab Emirates.”

The memo stated that Nader received the money for the illegal donations from the UAE government.

The filing marks the first time that the U.S. government has explicitly accused the UAE, a close ally, of illegally seeking to buy access to candidates during a presidential election.

The Intercept reported:

“Nader’s guilty plea opens a new window into the efforts of the United Arab Emirates and its de factor ruler, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed, known as MBZ, to influence the outcome fo the 2016 election and shape subsequent U.S. policy in the Gulf.”

The government’s memo notes that Nader and Los Angeles businessperson Ahamd “Andy” Khawaja also sought to cultivate “key figures” in the Trump campaign and that Khawaja donated $1 million to Trump’s inaugural committee – it is unclear where that money came from.

Prosecutors allege that, in total, Nader transferred nearly $5 million from his UAE-based business to Khawaja, the CEO of a Los Angeles-based payment processing company.

The sentencing memo details Nader and Khawaja’s efforts to disguise the money as a mundane business contract between the two.

According to the U.S. government, of that amount, more than $3.5 million came from the government of the UAE and was given to Democratic political committees working to elect Clinton.

The U.S. government has accused Nader, Khawaja, and six others of working together to conceal the origin of those funds.

Prosecutors have not publicly accounted for what happened to the remaining $1.4 million they say Nader transferred to Khawaja.

With Nader’s guilty plea, five of the eight men charged in the alleged conspiracy have pleaded guilty; two other defendants are scheduled to stand trial this year.

Khawaja fled the U.S. after the indictment and in 2020, the Associated Press (AP) reported that he was being held in Lithuania.

Prosecutors are seeking a five-year sentence for Nader, asking that it not begin until after he completes the 10-year sentence he is currently serving for possessing child pornography and bringing a minor to the U.S. “for the purpose of engaging in criminal sexual activity.”

Even as Nader poured donations into the effort to elect Clinton, he worked his way into the Trump campaign on behalf of his Gulf clients.

Nader would later tell the FBI that he met with Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr. several times in 2016. Nader reportedly told Trump Jr. that both MBZ and Saudi Arabia’s crown prince were eager to help his father get elected.

He told the FBI that he advised the Gulf monarchs to “be on good terms” with both Clinton and Trump in the run-up to the 2016 vote.

According to FBI interview notes, after Trump won the presidency, but before he was inaugurated, Nader unsuccessfully sought to arrange a meeting between Trump and MBZ.

Federal agents arrested Nader in June 2019 at JFK International Airport after he got off a flight from the UAE and charged him with possessing a dozen images or videos of child pornography.

Those charges were ultimately dismissed, but Nader was indicted on a separate child pornography possession charge and accused of flying a 14-year-old boy to the U.S. for sexual purposes.

Funding terrorists? Biden administration reportedly wants to release money to the Taliban

December 26th, 2021

WASHINGTON, DC – Recent news reports from Khaama Press, an Afghanistan News Agency, reported that the Biden Administration was considering unfreezing Afghanistan’s financial assets so that they could be accessed by the known terrorist group that overtook the country, the Taliban.

Afghanistan had its assets frozen by the United States when it became clear that the country would fall. The reason was to prevent the Taliban from ever getting access to those funds and potentially funding more terrorist activities.

However, that could all change if a report published by the Khaama Press is at all accurate.

On December 21st, the media group published a report that they had allegedly learned from the BBC that an unnamed United States official reported the Biden Administration is prepared to release at least a portion of the frozen assets.

According to the Khaama Press:

“The [BBC] source has said that the US administration has held a meeting in which easing sanctions on Afghanistan has been discussed in order to allow international aid organizations to deliver humanitarian aids to Afghanistan.”

They note that the news of this supposed release of financial aid comes at the heels of an OIC session on Afghanistan that had ended in Islamabad where it was decided that humanitarian aids would be sent to the country immediately to “prevent the economic collapse of the country.”

They note that the news came as the US Special Representative to Afghanistan, Thomas West, allegedly met in private with the Taliban’s foreign minister, Amir Khan Motaq, a report that cannot be confirmed.

While this news cannot be independently verified in any manner, it is interesting to note that the State Department spokesman, Ned Price, spoke to reporters about the terrorist country on December 20th. Price said:

“When it comes to humanitarian assistance, the United States is the global leader…We have provided, since August, $208 million alone, we provided nearly $475 million over the course of this year.

We have taken other steps as a government to do what we can to facilitate the provision of additional humanitarian assistance to the Afghan people.

“We are working with various UN bodies, including the UNDP, to find creative ways that we can infuse not only humanitarian aid but also liquidity into the Afghan economy…Thomas West was recently in Pakistan, where he attended a meeting of the OIC.

And the OIC recently announced in the context of that meeting the establishment of a trust fund, which will provide another important tool to provide money to the people of Afghanistan.”

While providing humanitarian aid to the people of Afghanistan that are subjected to the violent and bloody rule of the terrorist organization, the Taliban, seems noble… how is it that the United States and other countries plan on ensuring the people, not the terrorists, receive the money?

An even better question would be how does any country that provides financial assistance to the terrorist organization ensure that those funds are not used to fund terrorist activities?

Of course, the questions are rhetorical in nature as they most likely will never be asked by political leaders of any country. However, that has not stopped progressives and Democrats from calling on the Biden Administration to release the funds.

Democratic leaders, Pramila Jayapal, Jamaal Bowman, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Cori Bush authored a letter to Democratic President Joe Biden urging for the release of funds to the terrorist organization.

The letter states in part:

“As you transition into a new phase of our relationship with the country and people of Afghanistan, we stand with American allies and humanitarian experts in urging the United States to avoid harsh economic measures that will directly harm Afghan families and children.

This means conscientiously but urgently modifying current U.S. policy regarding the freeze of Afghanistan’s foreign reserves and ongoing sanctions.”

Report: Afghan refugees under Biden get free food, housing, $2275, but questionable vetting

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Under the Biden administration, thousands of Afghans transported to the United States are receiving free food, housing, and $2,275 in federal aid, along with questionable vetting.

According to the Washington Post, as Afghan refugee families are moved from temporary housing and care on military bases to cities throughout the United States, resettlement agencies are struggling to keep up with the volume of families waiting for permanent housing and additional aid.

 

KTRH NewsRadio reports that the White House has provided a “loose” estimate of 95,000 Afghans total coming into the United States.

The Washington Post notes:

“Federal officials say they are working to spread the evacuees to different parts of the country as they begin to shut down the temporary housing camps at seven military bases that are still home to 34,000 Afghans.

“The process is expected to be completed by mid-February.”

In some areas of the country, Oklahoma for instance, resettled refugees are being offered “free housing” to relocate there.

The Post adds:

“The evacuees are each entitled to receive $2,275 in federal support that is meant to cover housing costs, job training and other expenses over a three-month period once they are matched with a resettlement agency.”

Funding for such expenses is covered nationally by massive dollar amounts earmarked for Afghan refugees.

As we previously reported, Congress has now authorized a total of $13.3 billion for the Biden administration to settle Afghans in the United States.

Other areas of the country are working on additional local funding for Afghan refugees.

For example, according to Breitbart, New York taxpayers will be covering at least $5 million in relocation expenses, after Governor Kathy Hochul (D) earmarked an additional $2 million for that purpose.

 

Also for example, in Oregon, Yahoo News reports that SB5561, passed on December 13, 2021, will “support Afghan individuals and families with housing, education, legal aid, job training and culturally-specific support as they settle in the state.”

The news outlet goes on to note:

“Of that $18 million, $5.25 million has been earmarked for short-term food and shelter, $2.9 million will support case management services, $5.9 million will be for rental assistance and $2.89 million is for immigration and legal services.

“An additional $807,600 will be available for culturally specific assistance and interpretation classes.”

These costly efforts are not without criticism, especially given the question of vetting, or possible lack thereof, of these Afghan refugees.

According to Breitbart, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing that “not all” of the thousands of Afghan refugees entering the country have been interviewed by federal law enforcement, even though that is “standard vetting protocol.”

Ira Mehlman, spokesperson for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, recently told KTRH NewsRadio:

“We need to be concerned about the fact we really don’t know who is has gotten out of Afghanistan. And at the same time, we need to be doubly concerned about the growing humanitarian crisis in that country.”

He added:

“We have no idea for the most part who those people are.”

Mehlman continued:

”Most of them no doubt are just decent people who understandably wanted to get out of there. But as we’ve learned at a very high cost, it only takes a few people to cause an awful lot of trouble.”

In an exclusive interview with Breitbart, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton echoed these sentiments.

Noting that the “federal government has not shared its vetting procedures with Texas,” Paxton told Alex Marlow:

“We don’t have any confidence in the Biden administration [to vet Afghan migrants].”

 

He continued:

“When you look at the border and how they’re just inviting people to come across … obviously the cartels are involved in every transaction, because you have to pay them to get across the border….

“We’ve got the Biden administration helping the cartels, helping them import drugs, helping them import COVID into our state, helping them import sex trafficking and other human trafficking…. and yet here we are with the Afghan refugees.”

Paxton went on to say:

“I don’t know that we’ll vet [Afghan refugees] at all. I think it’ll just be whatever the federal government says they’ve done. We won’t really know if it’s true.

“We won’t even know if they’ve done anything, and so, they’ll be dropped wherever the federal government wants to drop them, and they’ll disappear into our society.

“We’ll never know, until something bad happens, if we have a terrorist.”
