    Clinton Foundation Failed to Disclose 1,100 Foreign Donations

    Clinton's "Charity" is going to continue to provide problems for her.

    Hillary Clinton’s presidential run is prompting new scrutiny of the Clintons’ financial and charitable affairs—something that’s already proved problematic for the Democratic frontrunner, given how closely these two worlds overlap. Last week, the New York Times examined Bill Clinton’s relationship with a Canadian mining financier, Frank Giustra, who has donated millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation and sits on its board. Clinton, the story suggests, helped Giustra’s company secure a lucrative uranium-mining deal in Kazakhstan and in return received “a flow of cash” to the Clinton Foundation, including previously undisclosed donations from the company’s chairman totaling $2.35 million.

    Giustra strenuously objects to how he was portrayed.... “We’re not trying to hide anything,” he says. There are in fact 1,100 undisclosed donors to the Clinton Foundation, Giustra says, most of them non-U.S. residents who donated to CGEP...

    The reason this is a politically explosive revelation is because the Clinton Foundation promised to disclose its donors as a condition of Hillary Clinton becoming secretary of state. Shortly after Barack Obama was elected president in 2008, the Clinton Foundation signed a “memorandum of understanding” with the Obama White House agreeing to reveal its contributors every year. The agreement stipulates that the “Clinton Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative” (as the charity was then known) is part of the Clinton Foundation and must follow “the same protocols.”

    It hasn’t. Giustra says that’s because Canada’s federal privacy law forbids CGEP, a Canadian-registered charity, from revealing its donors.... [but] Canadian tax and privacy law experts were dubious of this claim. Len Farber, former director of tax policy at Canada's Department of Finance, said he wasn't aware of any tax laws that would prevent the charity from releasing its donors' names. "There's nothing that would preclude them from releasing the names of donors," he said. "It's entirely up to them."

    Mark Blumberg, a charity lawyer at Blumberg Segal in Toronto, added that the legislation "does not generally apply to a registered charity unless a charity is conducting commercial activities...

    Come on, where's the Chinese Communist Party? They must be in there for $100M or so.

    Frankly I wouldn't be surprised, Clintons are totally corrupted.

    This is the same trick that 0bama has been using from day one.
    Fill the room full of gun smoke andthe gun disapears.


    Onlytotal liberal fools can look at this and think that Hillary is fit to be president.

    We know that if things get bad and she has to step back she can donate all of her millions of dollars in campaign funds to her ownfoundation.15% going to good causes like abortion services for Black women and 85% going to pay salaries and travel expenses for her and her staff.The foundation or the campaign can buy a nice jet so cut down on travel expenses - if they don't already have a plane.

    Not looking good here, but it's the Clintons.

    First off, I think we should have a "No Legacy" rule for president. There are enough Americans that we can find a fit person without resorting to the same couple of families

    Second, I wish we would be so thorough with the rest of our politicians. The Clintons are corrupt, I don't think there's really any getting around that, but so are many many more, and I think it's high time we find them and vote them out.

    Corporate, status quo shills.

    They actually have taken a large sum of money from the Chinese government in the past (1996)!

    Exactly!

    The term I recently heard bandied about (which I now use) is: 'The Bush-Clinton Monarchy'!

    Corporate, status quo shills.
    You got that right!

    (and the GOP will give us the same)

    Raw meat seems to follow the Clinton's whatever they do or go. Can you imagine Hillery as president and Bill running around the world gathering up money while Hillery is pulling strings. What a **** ing nightmare.
