    Unraveling: Liberal Common Cause demands Clinton Foundation, Hillary audit

    Common Cause Urges Independent Audit of Donations to Clinton Foundation

    Citing concerns about potential conflicts of interest and the influence of hidden overseas donors, Common Cause called on presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton and the Clinton Foundation today to commission an independent and thorough review of all large donations to the foundation and to release the results.

    "As Mrs. Clinton herself observed earlier this week, voluntary disclosure is not enough," said Common Cause President Miles Rapoport. "A report in Thursday's New York Times indicates that the Clinton Foundation violated an agreement to identify all of its donors. The foundation's omissions create significant gaps in the information that voters need to make informed decisions at the polls."

    To ensure that the audit is complete, Rapoport said the foundation should enter into a contractual agreement with auditors to open its books fully and to make public the complete report of their review.

    And to further guard against potential conflicts of interest, the foundation should stop accepting donations from foreign governments and foreign corporations, he said.

    "There already is too much 'dark money' in our elections, in the form of spending by supposedly independent nonprofit groups that are not required to disclose their donors and operate as sort of shadow campaigns," Rapoport said. "The Clinton Foundation and any other foundations tied to a candidate or his or her family provide one more way for potential donors to gain access and curry favor from candidates without the public knowing about it. That lack of transparency creates a clear risk of undue influence and conflicts of interest."

    Now let's take a look at a Hillary defender....

    Unfortunately for Mrs Clinton, unlike in the world of savings plans and soap powder, in presidential politics the rival concerns get to fire back, and this week Republicans began the process of pre-emptively destroying the New Clinton brand.

    There is no smoking gun as yet, just the whiff of cordite after the fact and the sense deepened by Mrs Clinton's decision to delete 30,000 emails after she finished as Secretary of State that someone might have been racing round wiping fingerprints off the door knobs.

    Hmmmm....Hillary seems to have problems from not only her side of the fence politically speaking, but this smacks of not the "vast rightwing conspiracy" she so want's to brush it off as....Hillary is a liar, and a criminal who should be investigated, and if found to have violated law, convicted, and imprisoned. Certainly NOT POTUS.....

    Nah, personally, I think that the "Far left" is going to seize on this the force Warren into the race.

    Obviously, the Clintons are all about payoffs, paybacks, and quid pro quo. When she says she wants to run for president, the entire room should erupt in laughter. As if a pedophile wanted to become a babysitter. There should be no chance of it happening.

    Aw come on Hillary supporters...Where are you? Time is here for you to show that you all can be honest brokers and stand out against this corrupt shrew....

    "With a sitting Democratic senator recently indicted on federal bribery and corruption charges, top criminal defense lawyers in the nation’s capital say Democratic presidential front runner Hillary Clinton could conceivably face similar scrutiny, amid mounting disclosures about the tangled finances of her family’s philanthropic foundation.

    The new book “Clinton Cash” by Peter Schweizer, an investigative reporter affiliated with the right-leaning Hoover Institution, has unleashed a torrent of conflict-of-interest allegations relating to the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton’s own conduct during her tenure, from 2009 to 2013, as secretary of state.

    Particular scrutiny – by Fox News, the Washington Post, and the New York Times – has focused on why the State Department, under Clinton’s leadership, green-lighted a foreign transaction that enriched major donors to the foundation while placing an estimated 20 percent of America’s stockpile of uranium - the fissile material that can be used to make nuclear weapons -under the control of a Kremlin-backed Russian firm.
