Exactly!!! The Clinton Foundation has been doing this for YEARS! Do you think they don't know how to make it look good?

Heck The Clintons have been doing this since they started in Arkansas!!

To me the fact that she stated she will shut it down if she becomes President says she knows there is a problem but also knows that no one will stand up to them. Makes you wonder exactly what dirt they have managed to gather on others. Maybe people were also making donations of information....if you get enough dirt on enough people youbecome untouchable.

As you know, Donald Trump himself gave between $100,001 and $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation in 2014. That's in addition to numerous campaign donations, giving his golf buddy Bill free access to Trump National (he reportedly eve cleared the links once for Bill's birthday).

I'd say nobody is better positioned than Donald Trump to detail what sort of things donations to the foundation buy a person.

If he wants to tell the world what his numerous donations and gestures of friendship bought for him aside from Hillary sitting in the front pew of his wedding, I for one would love to hear it.

Somehow I think this will stay in the realm of vague allegations.

Of course you can post what you want. Goodness, you're being more than a bit childish here.

You can post what you want, and I'll post what I want in return.

If you don't like being called on cherry-picking and referencing tabloids ... just don't do it.

Otherwise, take what you get.

Don't worry, you're not proving anything to anyone ... (except that you buy into the right-wing media's BS).

Here's an article from last year discussing the Clinton Foundation, and it's work...

In 2013, The Clinton Foundation Only Spent 10 Percent Of Its Budget On Charitable Grants

Depending on which side of the fence you are on, you may appreciate the breakdown, or just dismiss it due to the source..

However, when Trump, HuffPO, Ed Rendell, (though he must have been talked to ), call for the Foundation to close down, there's something shady going on imo....

I hope the FBI & the IRS are conducting a thorough investigation and clear the air on this situation.


AGAIN, it is not a "Grant giving Foundation" it is an OPERATING FOUNDATION. They FUND OPERATIONS on the ground, among other things....

I hate being put in the position of "apologist" for something I'm just learning about myself - but Trump is so eagerly negative that it becomes cartoonish, and if he says something, it is more likely than not to be a lie...



Sadly, you've just described my ATS career; I came here to learn about international government corruption, instead, I find that all to often, many posters seem to be working on their next Breitbart or TownHall article.

/sigh

From the most recent 990 the CF has filed:

Guistra:


The Clinton Foundation engages in certain charitable activities that are funded by Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership (CGEP Canada, formerly CGSGI Canada).CGEP Canada makes grants from time-to-time to the Clinton Foundation to carry out CGEP Canada’s and the Clinton Foundation’s charitable goals. Neither entity controls the other; however, they share a common board member. During 2014and 2013, the Clinton Foundation received from CGEP Canada approximately $131,008 and $1,232,458, respectively.


The above is where the donations flow in from foreign companies but are anonymized by Canada's laws.


The news outlet also points out how the foreign arm of the Clinton Foundation, the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership (Canada), or CGEP, is also not subject to the Foundation’s latest announcement on donation limitations.

When questioned about the arrangement, should Hillary win the presidency, Frank Giustra reportedly said “we plan to spin CGEP into an independent entity to continue this important work. President Clinton and I believe it is important that we continue the work of alleviating poverty around the world.”

Giustra did not, however, provide any additional details – including anything about the role former President Bill Clinton might have under the hypothetical arrangement.

So, even when they say they're going to stop being shady, they're shady about it.

Another right-wing media nonsense claim.

What about Malaria? What about HIV/AIDS?

You guys can't see that you're proving my point with EVERY post, LOL.

This is too easy.

So are you saying the state department did not approve the uranium deal?
Are you saying no payments were made to the clintons from any of these companies?

I don't think you're reading my posts ...

I've made statements about the Clinton Foundation and what it does, as opposed to what right-wingers believe because of the political propaganda in the right-wing media.

Again, if you wish to talk about that, I'm here.

Nonsense. You asked a specific question. My statements and claims are above; again, I welcome discussion on anything I have actually stated.

I didn't choose to respond to your irrelevant question about a topic I've said nothing about.

Sorry if I triggered you.

If it's coming from Trump, I automatically don't believe it. I don't care if he is telling me that the Hulk is green. He's lying in my book.


Because capt. cankels is a bastion of truth and integrity right? I see more people not believing anything the queen of corruption flaps from her jaws. You'd better keep propping up that rotten, corrupt, carcass since she may not be able to stand on her own. Oh yea, she's also starting to stink horribly, do you think you could help out and check to see if she needs a change? Maybe it's just all the dead body stench starting to rub off on her.

Sure we do know, what Clinton foundation does.

It gives 85% of the donations back to Clintons.

Or how would you explain Hillary Clinton's net worth? And high salary - from CF...

You posted....


Just out of curiosity, outside of right-wing propaganda, do any of you know what the Clinton Foundation actually does?


I responded....... (with source material)



The clinton foundation facilitated allowing the russians to get uranium from the USA. Isn't that a good thing?


And you replied...



Nonsense. You asked a specific question. My statements and claims are above; again, I welcome discussion on anything I have actually stated.

You asked, I replied, you didn't like the reply and chose to take your ball and go home. Typical when the answer is not uplifting to Hillary.

I hear you on the confirmation bias - but I wouldn't limit it to 'right-wingers on ATS'. These days, with such a polarized, two party system, and main stream media that is run by corporatist conglomerates with serious lobbying interests, most people I know pretty much rely on finding facts to meet their chosen narrative.

I was just offering my two cents as someone who has to adhere to the FAR, appropriations law, and the U.S. Code every day for my job, as well as personal experiences. I remember in some of my CON classes (formal education for federal contract specialists / contracting officers) being VERY unimpressed with the folks from State and USAID...

If I ever have some free time (end of fiscal year at work and new baby at home) I'll try to do some digging into the procurement side of State while Hillary was there - places to start would be who was the chief of procurement, what kinds of data can be pulled from FPDS-NG, and what percentage of these 'aid' contracts were deemed 'contingencies' or other statutorily approved authorities for sole sourcing.

Would also be interesting to see where some of the higher level contracting / procurement folks during Hillary's tenure ended up (i.e. if they went on to the private / NGO sector at places that won some of these contracts tied to the Clinton Foundation)...
