    Full picture of Clinton charities' foreign government funding remains elusive

    After reading this story I just have to ask... How can anyone still support Hillary Clinton for president?

    I have never in my life seen a family that so brazenly does what ever the hell they want to, like the rules don't apply to them.


    Full picture of Clinton charities' foreign government funding remains elusive
    NEW YORK | BY JONATHAN ALLEN
    Reuters


    The Clinton Foundation has acknowledged that the government funding totals omitted from their tax returns cannot be found on their website either, despite the foundation's acting chief executive officer earlier suggesting they were available there.


    The foreign government funding received by the globe-spanning charities of Hillary Clinton's family has received particular scrutiny in recent weeks as Clinton seeks to become the Democratic nominee in the 2016 presidential election.


    The foundation's acknowledgement means precise totals for government grants to the charity for the last three years of Clinton's four-year tenure as secretary of state have still not been publicly disclosed. All U.S. charities have to separately disclose each year how much they get in government funding, both domestic and foreign.


    Shortly before taking office in 2009, Clinton promised the Obama administration heightened transparency concerning donors to her family's charities to avoid accusations of conflicts of interests when she became the nation's most senior diplomat. In recent months, the charities have said they did not comply with some parts of the agreement.


    In April, Maura Pally, the foundation's acting chief executive officer, said it was a mistake not to separately list government grants on its public tax forms for 2010, 2011 and 2012 after a Reuters review found errors, but added that the public could find the break-outs elsewhere.


    "Those same grants have always been properly listed and broken out and available for anyone to see on our audited financial statements, posted on our website," she wrote in a statement on the foundation's website.


    The audited financial statements, however, do not break out government grants separately, foundation officials told Reuters.

    Liberal democrats will support her no matter what for one reason: they have no alternative. Ironically and comically, liberals will spend the next two years bailing out a corrupt 1 percenter that is too big to fail.

    Mornin Grim. There is more to it. Note how Media Matters won't be able to save her nor spin for her. Nor how She and her Team wont be able to use that lame ass excuse of its a Right Wing Conspiracy.

    Both need to worry about the perspective of......that they sold out the country and the American people. Just so they can play where the Big Boys play.

    Time to knock them out that world.....that they never belonged in nor should be part of.

    The good news this morning. A judge just reopened the case on her emails and server. Plus now her brother has been caught up with the Foundation and monies for him with Haiti. To top it off.....FBI, CIA and DOJ are all looking into her pal and his Private Intel Agency and why he was sending and discussing State Business with Hillary.

    Since he had no clearance. Now she needs to be asked.....what was she doing discussing State Business with Blumenthal.....and over Libya and Algeria!




    Let's see if we can contextualize this for you: You already know that the Clinton Foundation failed to report tens of millions in foreign donations in their tax documents, a revelation that has forced the organization to re-file at least five years' worth of returns. You also already knew that some of those many undisclosed donations (which violated Hillary's transparency pledge) were related to a troubling transaction in which (a) the Russian government obtained the rights to a large chunk of US uranium interests, (b) investors and magnates connected to the deal profited handsomely, (c) the Clinton Foundation (and the Clinton themselves) pocketed millions, and (d) Hillary's State Department signed off on the whole thing -- before "repeatedly breaking" promises to mitigate national security concerns. Bloomberg and Fox News are reporting that a Clinton Foundation-tied group led by a man at the center of the uranium deal didn't disclose more than 1,000 foreign donors:....snip~

    A senior State Department official testifying at the first congressional hearing focusing on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account for official business called such an arrangement “not acceptable” and said other employees have been warned against it.

    Mornin Fletch. Nah, they will still be to busy trying to protect BO peep. Trying to keep him relevant as a Former President.

    Only one problem with their plan.....no one will be going to his lame ass for advice on much of anything. Hopefully all other world leaders will put him on the back burner too.

    I say we make his become so insignificant.....he will think about committing suicide.

    Full Story

    There is more and with Bilbo and the State Dept. This piece does mention her problems if she would ever become President. Its not going to happen for her, the Tea Leaves are giving a differing reason why.



    During Hillary Rodham Clinton's tenure as the top U.S. diplomat, lawyers and other ethics officials in the State Department's Office of the Legal Adviser gave near-blanket approval to at least 330 requests for Bill Clinton's appearance at speeches, dinners and events both in the U.S. and around the globe. More than 220 paid events earned the family nearly $50 million, according to a review of State Department documents and Hillary Clinton's financial disclosure forms by The Associated Press.

    Now, as Hillary Clinton moves forward with her presidential campaign, the ease with which her husband was repeatedly cleared to address companies and governments around the world highlights the potential ethical complications that are likely to intensify if she becomes the country's next president.

    The State Department also green-lighted requests by several foreign governments to hire the former president, despite the potential complications for his wife's international diplomacy.....snip~

    US approved most Bill Clinton speech requests within days
