A Colorado man faces charges that he helped a wealthy Democratic fundraiser cheat banks out of hundreds of millions of dollars. Federal prosecutors said Friday that Shahin Kashanchi, of Telluride, provided fake documents that let his brother-in-law Hassan Nemazee defraud three banks of more than $290 million.

Nemazee was the national finance chairman for Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign. He later raised money for Barack Obama.

And all this time Obamessiah tried to fool us that his $950 million came from US citizens that support his communist ideology. All along it was corrupt money from his arabic-muslim mafia friends.

I think he actually thought that we would believe that Americans with no jobs, broke and in debt, losing their homes, living 300% below the poverty line, were funding his campaign because they just luuuuuuuuuuuv him so much!

ROFL!

I wonder if any of the Denver media/press critters report on this? If not, few in Colorado will know about it. If they do, I’m sure the word “Democrat” won’t appear in the story.

New York businessman and prominent Democratic fund- raiser Hassan Nemazee was indicted Monday for allegedly defrauding three banks out of $292 million in loans.

Nemazee, 59 years old, was charged with aggravated identity theft and three counts of bank fraud in the indictment.

Nemazee, who was involved in various presidential campaigns and once served as finance chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

To perpetuate the scheme, Nemazee allegedly provided fake account statements with forged signatures that claimed he held hundreds of millions of dollars in U.S. Treasury notes and other securities, prosecutors said.

Nemazee also established two “virtual offices” that purported to be associated with legitimate brokerage firms in the event the banks sought to confirm the existence of the assets, the government said.

He allegedly used the proceeds from the loans to make donations to the election campaigns of federal, state, and local candidates; to make donations to political action committees.

Today’s indictment exposes the sheer brazenness of Nemazee’s schemes and marks the end of his decade of deception.

I’m sure Hill and Obam will be held responsible. Any Republican would be.

Weren't the Clinton's supported by Chinese money? Dems aren't the party of the people - they're the party of the corrupt rich...

Calling Doug From Upland:

How does this possibly tie in with the lawsuit against Hillary and her filing false campaign statements from her activities?

Does this connect to Peter Paul?

What is the status of that case now?
