Re: Bush campaign against Obama
Do you think payments to him by violator of Trading with the Enemy Act (TWEA) can give rise to concern?
Or is this simply case of history no one need be aware of.
Jeb Bush Paid By Bank That Violated Cuba Sanctions
http://www.buzzfeed.com/andrewkaczynski/jeb-bush-paid-by-bank-that-violated-cuba-sanctions#.khNNJLAjb - Dec. 17, 2014
The former Florida governor serves as an adviser to Barclays, which was fined nearly $300 million for violating sanctions in 2010, prior to his work there
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush blasted the Obama administration’s decision to normalize relations with Cuba in a Facebook post Wednesday, but in an example of why Bush’s ties to private equity and Barclays could provide fodder for opponents and critics, Barclays (which reportedly pays Bush more than a million dollars a year
) had to settle criminal charges for violating sanctions that included Cuba.
“The violations relate to transactions Barclays illegally conducted on behalf of customers from Cuba, Iran, Sudan and other countries sanctioned in programs administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC),” the Justice Department added.
Bush has been at Barclays since 2008, but the actions that led to the fine took place before the Florida governor was with the bank.
“The beneficiaries of President Obama’s ill-advised move will be the heinous Castro brothers who have oppressed the Cuban people for decades.”
