When even a liberal website like the Huffington Post says the Clinton Foundation is a FRAUD and you should “SHUT IT DOWN” – you know it’s bad. The real story will be if Hillary Clinton listens. Afterall, you know what they say, “Money talks”.
The Clinton Foundation has been at center of negative news lately due to the recent book, “Clinton Cash” written by Peter Schweizer. “Clinton Cash” is a story of all the Clinton “wrong doings”, crony capitalism and billions of dollars funneled into the Clinton Foundation after speeches by Bill and deals by Hillary Clinton – before, during and after her time as secretary of state. It seems journalists and politicians from the left, right and center are now supporting the dismantling of the non-profit Clinton Foundation.
The Huffington Post is just the latest outlet to acknowledge that the explosive research, found first in Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer’s New York Times bestselling book Clinton Cash, has inspired a massive movement of journalists and political figures — on the left, right, and center — calling on the Clintons to dismantle their problematic nonprofit.
The Times piece shines the spotlight on “a deal involving the sale of American uranium holdings to a Russian state-owned enterprise” — another revelation first revealed in Clinton Cash — “… which involved major Clinton charitable backers from Canada …” as “another example of the foundation intersecting with Mrs. Clinton’s official role in the Obama administration.”
For weeks, the Democratic presidential candidate has been bombarded with questions about the apparent global nexus of influence peddling involving top aids to Clinton offering preferential treatment to million-dollar Clinton Foundation donors when she was the head of the State Department.
In a staggering sign of vulnerability, Bill Clinton told a room full of the foundation’s staff on Thursday that he will resign from the Clinton Foundation board if Hillary Clinton wins the White House in November. The former president also pledged to stop giving paid speeches, regardless of the outcome of Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid.
Still, even after the former president’s announcement, other Clinton Foundation projects – The Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) and the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership (CGEP) – said they would continue to collect donations no matter what happens in November.
Bill Clinton’s announcement followed former Democratic Pennsylvania Governor and longtime Clinton ally Ed Rendell’s remarks that the foundation should shutdown if Hillary Clinton became president.
“I definitely think if she wins the presidency, they have to disband it. I know it’ll be hard for President (Bill) Clinton because he cares very deeply about what the foundation has done,” Rendell told the New York Daily News. “It’d be impossible to keep the foundation open without at least the appearance of a problem.”
UH, DUH! Do you think!?
My question would be to Gov. Rendell, “Why didn’t you think they should have dismantled it WHILE Hillary was Secretary of State?” I guess he thought it was OK for Hillary to “sell out” America as long as she wasn’t president. I agree with Peter Schweizer comments:
“The new pledge is a stunning tacit admission of wrongdoing,” Schweizer wrote on Thursday, adding that “it comes too little too late and raises the obvious question: If it would be wrong for Hillary’s foundation to accept foreign cash as president, why wasn’t it wrong for Hillary’s foundation to accept foreign cash from oligarchs and countries who had business pending on her desk as Sec. of State?”
Schweizer continued: “Moreover, if, as has been confirmed by numerous mainstream media organizations, Hillary Clinton violated her ethics pledge with the Obama administration to disclose all Clinton Foundation donations, why should the American people believe she would now honor a new pledge to forgo bagging cash from foreign oligarchs and countries?”
Once again, Hillary Clinton is UNETHICAL! This is NOT NEW! She has a long history of being unethical, and lying and a similar long trail of “mysterious” and “suddenly” dead suspects that follow her as well, ranging from Vince Foster to Seth Rich. You do NOT want to get on her bad side!
Hillary Clinton has been involved in SO many scandals, but it doesn’t seem to matter. Her goal is to become president…at all costs. It’s about money and power, and she’s going to continue to do what she does best…lie and cheat, with or without the Clinton Foundation. If you think that “shutting down” the Clinton Foundation will stop Hillary Clinton from “selling out” America…you must be dreaming! Get REAL!
