They’re having a close-out sale at the Clinton Foundation. The New York Times reports:
Facing criticism for some of the donations given to his family’s philanthropy, Bill Clinton said on Thursday that the Clinton Foundation would no longer accept foreign or corporate money and that he would resign from its board should Hillary Clinton win the presidency.
“[T]he potential for real or perceived conflicts of interest . . . have forced the Clintons to protect against further damage to [Hillary Clinton’s] already low levels of trust among voters,” notes the Times.
A couple of things on this. First, the Clinton Foundation continued to accept foreign donations while Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state. Doesn’t the Clintons’ belated decision tacitly concede that was a mistake? If foreign donations to a family foundation could represent a “conflict of interest” for a president, couldn’t they have a possibly corrupting influence on the nation’s top diplomat as well?
Also, if there is indeed the potential that donations to the Clinton Foundation might somehow affect government policy, shouldn’t the foundation stop accepting donations now?
Foreign nations need to keep their big fat noses out of america’s private affairs like elections
The Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), the Clinton foundation’s flagship project, may chose to ignore the organization’s recent decision to stop accepting money from foreign governments and co-operations.
CHAI may be a “separate legal entity” from the Clinton’s New York City-based charity, but it’s budget is included in the Clinton Foundation’s annual audited expenses, yearly reports, and is listed under “affiliated entities” on the Clinton Foundation website.
Another Clinton Foundation initiative set to ignore the foreign donations ban is the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership (CGEP).
“If Secretary Clinton wins the election, we plan to spin CGEP into an independent entity to continue this important work,” CGEP co-founder Frank Giustra.
Giustra is the multi-million dollar Clinton Foundation donor and Canadian mining magnate who — along with Bill Clinton’s global connections and Hillary Clinton’s State Department — helped facilitate the transfer of 20 percent of the United States’ uranium supply to the Russian government.
The ink hasn’t even dried on the “No foreign money” promise and the Clinton Foundation is already looking for ways to circumvent it.
Sheesh, they could have at least given lip service to it until Hillary won the election.
Now she’s going to look like a liar. …..Oh, wait….Too late!
No wonder the woman can’t stand on her own, she keeps shooting herself in the foot.
Probably why she wants to ban guns.
It should be shut down now
oh, she and the whore dog billy would stop foundation funding only is she is elected.
