The week before he was slated to testify against the Clinton Foundation – which is being accused of corruption and malpractice regarding its handling of donations it received for Haitian earthquake relief – former Haitian government official Klaus Eberwein was recently found dead with a gunshot wound to the head in Miami, Florida.
Even though the Miami Herald announced that the 50-year-old reportedly committed suicide, many critics argue that the mysterious death was more than likely a murder, as critics of former first lady Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton have appeared to come to untimely deaths over the years.
“The death was ruled a suicide,” WND reported. “Eberwein was 50 and reportedly told acquaintances he feared for his life for his fierce criticism of the Clinton Foundation.”
A mere coincidence?
The middle-aged Haitian – who was supporter of former Haitian President Michel Martelly – had reportedly rubbed the Clintons the wrong way, as it was anticipated that he was about to open up another Clinton scandal.
“Eberwein was due to appear next Tuesday before the Haitian Senate Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission where he was widely expected to testify that the Clinton Foundation misappropriated Haiti earthquake donations from international donors,” the WND report continued. “He had served as director general of the Haitian government’s economic development agency, Fonds d’assistance économique et social [FAES], for three years.”
Despite the claims that Hillary Clinton made last year on the presidential campaign trail about virtually all of her foundation’s contributions going directly to the causes which it purportedly supported, less than one percent actually went to the Haitian relief groups that were supposed to receive them.
“According to Eberwein, a paltry 0.6 percent of donations granted by international donors to the Clinton Foundation with the express purpose of directly assisting Haitians actually ended up in the hands of Haitian organizations,” WND divulged. “A further 9.6 percent ended up with the Haitian government. The remaining 89.8 percent – or $5.4 billion – was funneled to non-Haitian organizations.”
While participating in a protest against the Clinton Foundation outside its headquarters in Manhattan last year, Eberwein alleged that the Clintons were no better than white-collar crooks stealing from the poor.
“The Clinton Foundation – they are criminals, they are thieves, they are liars, they are a disgrace,” the now-deceased Haitian alleged in 2016, according to WND.
Not believing the suicide report, close friends and business partners of Eberwein received the news in disbelief, as one friend insisted that the account of him taking his own life made absolutely no sense.
“It’s really shocking,” Eberwein’s friend, Gilbert Bailly, expressed, according the Haiti Libre newspaper. “We grew up together; he was like family.”
The Haitian daily indicated that the Clinton family foe was far from exhibiting suicidal tendencies.
“[Eberwein was said to be in] good spirits with plans for the future,” the Libre stated, according to BDNews24.com. “His close friends and business partners are shocked by the idea he may have committed suicide.”
Bailly said he had spoken to Eberwein just two weeks ago, noting that his friend had an optimistic outlook on life and that they were planning on opening a Muncheez restaurant together in Sunrise, Florida.
However, along with the Miami Herald’s report that Eberwein had allegedly committed suicide, the paper said that Eberwein had apparently fallen on hard times, noting that a spokesman from Uber confirmed that the Haitian was temporarily employed as a driver in South Florida.
Not so fast
Even though the Herald announced that the medical examiner records supervisor of Miami-Dade County registered the official cause of death as a “gunshot to the head” inflicted in a suicide, many maintain that the claim is more than questionable.
“The circumstances surrounding Eberwein’s death are also nothing less than unpalatable,” ZeroHedge.com reported. “Eberwein’s death has been registered as ‘suicide’ by the government, but not long before his death, he acknowledged that his life was in danger because he was outspoken on the criminal activities of the Clinton Foundation.”
The timing of Eberwein’s death appears to be much more than a coincidence to many, as stated accounts show that Eberwein was not happy with being the Clinton Foundation’s scapegoat.
“During and after his government tenure, Eberwein faced allegations of fraud and corruption on how the agency he headed administered funds,” ZeroHedge.com’s Tyler Durden reported. “Among the issues was FAES’ oversight of the shoddy construction of several schools built after Haiti’s devastating Jan. 12, 2010, earthquake. But, according to Eberwein, it was the Clinton Foundation who was deeply in the wrong – and he intended to testify and prove it on Tuesday.”
Dying just days before his chance to clear the record against the Clintons does not settle well with many.
“Eberwein was expected to testify against the Clinton Foundation in court and ends up committing suicide shortly before … Where have we heard this before?” Durden posed. “Untimely deaths seem to follow the Clinton’s around, and this one especially is probably something – considering since the mainstream media is silent about this death.”
The allegations that Eberwein faced do not make much sense when looking at the way Haitian authorities have expressed their gratitude to him post-mortem.
“The Haitian government issued an official notice thanking Eberwein for his service and mourning his untimely death,” BDNews24.com announced.
