I'm not sure it does. For one, I don't know at whose expense this was done against. Second, he did the smart thing before having to stop maintaining his lifestyle. Not to mention, during that time he was employing many people, effectively maintaining their lifestyles as well.

He's basically using his charity for money laundering.


You really wanna throw that in? Clinton's "pay to play" comes to mind if you want to make those points. Hundreds of millions from foreign investors, who just happen to get what they want, after Hilly cashes the check.
Once again... pot, meet kettle.

Those to whom he owed money? When he declared bankruptcy and otherwise?

You want to talk about people using charities for money laundering?



The Clinton Foundation isn't even a real charity... it's a slush fund for political influence.

I've read plenty on the Clinton foundation.

Apparently, you choose to read conspiracies.

This isn't a conspiracy, it's the Clinton Foundations Tax Exemption Form from 2014 which is available online as per FOIA.

The "charity" brought in 178 Million and spent only 5.1 million on charitable grants.

It has nothing to do with FOIA. Non-profit tax reports are a matter of public record. You can even look up Trump's foundation.
But perhaps you are mistaking grants to other charities with amounts spent on internal programs? Maybe if you learned how to read a financial statement.

Charity watchdog: Clinton Foundation a ‘slush fund’

It's ironic since the organization you posted, charitynavigator.com, refused to rate the Clinton Foundation until September 1st 2016 because...


Charity Navigator, which rates nonprofits, refused to rate the Clinton Foundation because its “atypical business model . . . doesn’t meet our criteria.”

Charity Navigator put the foundation on its “watch list,” which warns potential donors about investing in problematic charities. The 23 charities on the list include the Rev. Al Sharpton’s troubled National Action Network, which is cited for failing to pay payroll taxes for several years.

That is false.



The foundation was given no rating because they did not present their reports in a manner which was compatible with Charity Navigator's system. At the request of Charity Navigator, they did so and were rated. Very highly.


“We had previously evaluated this organization, but have since determined that this charity’s atypical business model cannot be accurately captured in our current rating methodology,” Navigator says. “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.”

BREAKING : Clinton Foundation #FailedTaxAudit Forces them to Refile Tax returns and Audit for Errors

Whoops!
That's not exactly breaking.
It's from April 2015. The errors resulted in no changes to the tax situation.

With your headline, here's the sites that came up when I searched: Reuters, WND, FOX, Breitbert, etc.

Here's what I found:


An embarrassing misreading of Hillary and Bill Clinton’s 2015 tax returns led The Daily Caller to publish an entire article based on the false premise that the couple had given almost all their charitable donations to the Clinton Foundation.

The August 12 article, inaccurately headlined “96 Percent Of Hillary’s Charitable Donations In 2015 Went To Clinton Foundation,” claimed that while the Clintons’ tax returns indicate they gave more than $1 million to charity in 2015, “the contributions can hardly be seen as altruistic, since the money flowed back to an entity they control.” The article went on to claim that the donations went to the “Clinton Foundation," which has purportedly "been at the center of several controversies that have hobbled Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign by eroding trust in the former secretary of state,” and highlighted several trumped-up scandals related to that organization.

Unfortunately for The Daily Caller, the Clintons’ tax returns indicate that they gave that money not to the well-known Clinton Foundation but to the Clinton Family Foundation, an entirely separate entity, which in fact distributes its funds to a variety of other charitable and nonprofit organizations. mediamatters.org...

Yeah, Trump knows that and that's why he wants to change the BS tax codes, regulations and cut taxes.

With hillary, they will get the same BS that has been going on. Probably more with her death tax and raising taxes.

She is gonna crush small business even more with her plans for min wage, paid parental leave, raised tax and no regulation relief.

I voted for Bush "W" because of the tax deductions he promised small businesses.

That went out the window about the first week after he took office.
