    Many Clinton charity donors also got State Department awards under Hillary

    Twenty-two of the 37 corporations nominated for a prestigious State Department award and six of the eight ultimate winners while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State were also donors to the Clinton family foundation.
    Each of the companies listed appear to have made at least a portion of their donations before 2013. However, the Clinton Foundation's vague listings prevent a more thorough review.
    I hope she reported all this. I'm sure the vagueness of the records is an accident.

    Foundations don't just raise money on their own. It takes a lot of work.

    True, you need a large group of accounts to document every penny that goes in and out of the foundation and a whole other group of employees to ensure the documents has been shredded and hard drives sufficiently wiped.

    I'm sure MSM will promptly ignore this, at best quickly report about it as they move onto the weather.

    Mornin American. They did but as usual there was some major errors.


    Wait, the Clintons' organizations are re-filing at least five years'-worth of taxes because they failed to report tens of millions of dollars in donations from foreign governments? The Clintons' team has effectively responded by saying, "oops, our bad, but you guys only caught us in this 'mistake' because of how transparent we are." Go re-read the New York Times story above before you take that self-congratulation seriously. Especially this line: " Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors." Charity law experts say the Reuters-discovered 'errors' are not necessarily evidence of intentional wrongdoing, but call the situation "highly unusual:"

    Some experts in charity law and taxes said it was not remarkable for a charity to refile an erroneous return once in a while, but for a large, global charity to refile three or four years in a row was highly unusual. "I've never seen amendment activity like that," said Bruce Hopkins, a Kansas City lawyer who has specialized in charity law for more than four decades, referring to the CHAI filings. Clinton stepped down from the foundation's board of directors this month but her husband, Bill Clinton, and their daughter, Chelsea Clinton, remain directors. The foundation said last week after Hillary Clinton became a candidate that it would continue to accept funding from foreign governments...Nick Merrill, Clinton's spokesman has declined to answer inquiries about the foundation and CHAI......snip~

    The Republocrats are all about favors for their big donor friends. It's a problem with the entire lot of politicians we currently have. Protected aristocrats pandering to their rich buddies.

    At this point.... what difference does it make now?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
