Billionaire Clinton Foundation Donor, Feds Settle Lawsuit Over Reports of Terrorism Ties


A billionaire Clinton Foundation donor has struck a deal with the U.S. government to settle a lawsuit over leaks that indicated he was fundraising for a U.S.-designated terrorist organization.

Gilbert Chagoury, a Nigerian-born businessman who lives in Lebanon, filed a lawsuit last September against the FBI, CIA, Department of Justice, and several other agencies over leaks that “improperly impugned” his reputation and denied his constitutional rights, Politico reported Monday.

News reports surfaced last year that Chagoury, who contributed millions to the Clinton Foundation and pledged $1 billion to the Clinton Global Initiative in 2009, was denied entry into the United States in 2015 due to his connection to a Lebanese organization allied with Hezbollah, a State Department-designated foreign terrorist organization.
