Maybe they learned that practice from the Koch brothers.

The Clinton Foundation is hardly more than a slush fund,
it has been on a Charity Watch list, and In other words, it is a scam.




The Clinton family’s mega-charity took in more than $140 million in grants and pledges in 2013 but spent just $9 million on direct aid.

The group spent the bulk of its windfall on administration, travel, and salaries and bonuses, with the fattest payouts going to family friends

That is incorrect. Here is what Charity Navigator said:


Charity Navigator: We had previously evaluated this organization, but have since determined that this charity’s atypical business model can not be accurately captured in our current rating methodology. Our removal of The Clinton Foundation from our site is neither a condemnation nor an endorsement of this charity. We reserve the right to reinstate a rating for The Clinton Foundation as soon as we identify a rating methodology that appropriately captures its business model.

What does it mean that this organization isn’t rated? It simply means that the organization doesn’t meet our criteria.

A lack of a rating does not indicate a positive or negative assessment by Charity Navigator.

No red flag here? Did you at least wonder what their methodology was for calculating this metric?

Charity Navigator

So from this we can extrapolate that the Foundation is unwilling to provide information for...



Fundraising Expenses ÷ Total Expenses
Administrative Expenses ÷ Total Expenses
Program Expenses ÷ Total Expenses
Working Capital ÷ Total Expenses


No red flags though right? Nothing to see here folks...

Charity Navigator


Asset Amount $354,190,170


I wonder how they spend the money???

Bill Clinton foundation has spent more than $50M on travel expenses

What's the problem here? It would appear that they believe in what the CF and CGI is doing. Enough so that they put their money were their mouths were.

Not everyone does believe in what the CF and CGI is doing.
In fact, some don't even know... after researching the question, what they are doing.
(some people think that they might even be a cover for a huge money laundering operation)
Do you have any links to any audits done by a reputable firm on these concerns?

Of course he doesn't.

Because they don't exist.

I noticed some of your posts this morning, and it seems all you do is go from thread to thread insulting other posters, with nothing significant to say, and nothing to contribute to the discussion. It seems to be a pattern.

I'll just tell you Bye now, because I don't think you'll last long around here.

Bye!

After they refiled their shady tax returns.


Actually, “slush fund” may be too kind. It’s no coincidence that the years of “voluntary” tax refilings coincide with Clinton’s years at State. Or that some of the 30,000 emails erased from her private email server might have held communications with foreign donors to the foundation — a clear violation of the law.

www.investors.com...


This all ties right back to her improper, illegal server,
her intentional evasion of the law concerning records preservation,
and violation of national security laws.

Also she used her position to try and gain donations by
giving tax breaks to donors. AKA ...scheme.

Hillary blurred lines by asking for tax breaks for nonprofits while Clinton Foundation sought donations



As first lady in the final year of the Clinton administration, Hillary Rodham Clinton endorsed a White House plan to give tax breaks to private foundations and wealthy charity donors at the same time the William J. Clinton Foundation was soliciting donations for her husband's presidential library, recently released Clinton-era documents show.



Only a few MSM sites address the ethical questions.


ncrease in foreign donations to Clinton Foundation raises ethical questions for possible Hillary 2016 bid

Of course it doesn't meet their criteria!

They rate CHARITIES!

In my opinion, if you give to the Clinton Foundation, you are supporting a crime family.
I think that is wrong.

Refiling/amending taxes is common. I've had to do it several times.

That is your opinion. You are welcome to it.
