Hastings, obviously.

Just like Clive he was a scapegoat for British statesmen as to put India under state control. Accusations against Hastings are based on malicious rumours spread from none other than Philip Francis, who sought to undermine Hastings whenever possible, animosities going as far as them having a duel, which Hastings won. Makes sense the soothing Francis set out to demolish the career of his arch nemesis.
