A recent news article reports “More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money — either personally or through companies or groups — to the Clinton Foundation. It’s an extraordinary proportion indicating her possible ethics challenges if elected president.”
“At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs, according to a review of State Department calendars… Combined, the 85 donors contributed as much as $156 million. At least 40 donated more than $100,000 each, and 20 gave more than $1 million.”
A Secretary of State running a multi-million dollar charity that solicits donations around the world just screams “corruption.” Adding a Clinton to the mix guarantees it.
The New York Post notes “The Clinton Foundation’s finances are so messy that the nation’s most influential charity watchdog put it on its “watch list” of problematic nonprofits last month.”
“The Clinton family’s mega-charity took in more than $140 million in grants and pledges in 2013 but spent just $9 million on direct aid…”
“Other nonprofit experts are asking hard questions about the Clinton Foundation’s tax filings in the wake of recent reports that the Clintons traded influence for donations.”
“’It seems like the Clinton Foundation operates as a slush fund for the Clintons,’ said Bill Allison, a senior fellow at the Sunlight Foundation, a government watchdog group…”
So Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was running a “charity” that a watchdog group has called a “slush fund for the Clintons.”
This isn’t Hillary’s first corrupt racket. Hillary made a cool $98,540 profit from cattle futures trading way back in 1978 and 1979, despite being an amateur in the stock market. Were her profits beginner’s luck or the result of “stock parking” in which a substantial bribe was funneled to her, possibly from Tyson Foods, who wanted certain things from her husband, the governor. Curiously, she never went back into the stock market after showing such phenomenal “talent.”
Hillary then spent a lengthy term at the Rose Law Firm, a cesspool of corruption, where two-thirds of the senior partners wound up dead or in prison with Hillary somehow slithering free.
This is the person that the corrupt mulatto, Barack Obama appointed to be the Secretary of State for the United States. Not surprisingly, Hillary Clinton abused her positions to further enrich herself, and now she has the arrogance to run for office as if she’s done nothing wrong. Hillary Clinton does NOT have a lifetime of valuable experience. She has a lifetime of corruption, and she belongs in prison, not the White House.
