No, HIllary is deflecting away from her Foundation issues and how she has not paid taxes. She wanted this to come out at the right time. A perfect release. It is not going to help however.


Accusations that Hillary Clinton padded her own pockets by deducting charitable donations to the Clinton Foundation appear to be baseless.

You mean like the Clinton global initiative?

Some additional information:



Donald Trump does not seem sure if his charity, The Donald J. Trump Foundation is 100 percent law-abiding.

...(snip)...

Instead, Trump's resort was helping the foundation - which has no employees or office space of its own - find a place to store its possessions.

What kind of foundation has no employees?



"You're not going to want people to be talking about the Clinton Foundation and comparing it to anything Donald Trump has done in his life, including giving away tens of millions of dollars of his own personal money", Christie said.
The newspaper, citing sources, said Trump instructed a NY ticket broker to pay $1.9 million to the foundation for goods and services including tickets to events.


So he donates millions to his own charity... which has no employees... but still needs office space and goods and services?

I don't think that compares to the Clinton Foundation. They've got paid staff.

Trump does have a history of not paying his campaign staffers - or telling them they're volunteers after they're hired

I just wonder how much is going to be discovered about this man's slimy behavior in the last month leading up to the election. I can only hope it's enough for people to come to their senses.


Compared to Clinton's dirty dealings, Trump is strictly amateur hour.

That's kind of the appeal, easier to catch it, and easier to stop.

Gotta have staff when you're selling off government positions, and allowing foreign states to have influence when you're Secretary of State...

Well, the Clinton Foundation has staff, but their charity organization The Clinton Family Foundation, has similar traits:

(From Annee's post)
4. The Clinton Family Foundation is a separate entity from the Clinton Foundation. Inside Philanthropy describes the Clinton Family Foundation as "a traditional private foundation that serves as the vehicle for the couple's personal charitable giving." It has neither staff nor offices.


Infact, it's even more minimal, as Trump's have vacant offices.

It's a private charity run by his family (kids) who (supposedly) are not paid.

When someone owes him money, he directs them to donate it to his charity (which means he pays no income taxes on it).

Then he paid debts and bought stuff (for himself) with the tax free funds.

Tax fraud - self dealing - money laundering.

Remember the Clinton's have 2 separate foundations.

And that is where the Right got things mixed up and wrong.

1.

The Clinton Foundation (founded in 1997 as the William J. Clinton Foundation, and called beginning in 2013 the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation) is a nonprofit corporation under section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. tax code. It was established by former President of the United States Bill Clinton with the stated mission to "strengthen the capacity of people in the United States and throughout the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence." Its offices are located in New York City and Little Rock, Arkansas.


2.

Clinton Family Foundation, a private organization for personal Clinton family philanthropy.

There will be nothing ever proved to change your mind.

If it is proven or shown that this was an innocent clerical mistake, and not done on purpose to benefit himself, I will absolutely change my mind about THIS specific story. But I'm never going to vote for him, so you have that part right. And I don't hate him. I just REALLY don't want him to be president. I AM being honest about it.

Come to our senses and what, vote Hillary? Not vote at all?


That's up to you. But what I meant was, come to your senses and really see who this man is. The way he uses the law to avoid paying taxes to the country he professes to love... while the rest of us little people are paying our fair share every single year, shows me that he has no intention of helping the people of this country. Everything he's into, he's into for himself and HIS family, only. He doesn't care who he cheats, hurts or scams. That's not the character of a president, IMO.

Clearly, many here disagree and think a man with this character is just what we need...

Why can't people understand that?

Trump is a fascinating character. I don't hate him either.

I just think he'd be a disaster as president of the USA.

And once again none of this information matters....

Trump supporters are not interested in Facts or Truth.....

I have never seen a more blatant display of cognitive dissonance in my life, and this is why conservatives are now split between those who stand by their principles and those just looking for a strong man.

Its clear with every single piece of information that comes out on Trump, including his waffling on the policies he said he was in favor of, and the STRONG evidence that he is definitely NOT for the middle class, or his attitude toward women, that his supporters have completely abandoned their conservative principles.....

I know people have grown tired of my ranting, but Im just dumbstruck , disappointed and honestly feel betrayed. Because I thought there were many many more of us out there that were guided by those principles.

On the other hand, I have found much to a full heart that there are more and more of the liberal side, that respect those of us who HAVE stood behind our principles on the conservative side, whether they agree with us on policy or not.

So .......I guess cheers all around

So on the one hand, we have direct evidence that the Trump Foundation has all sorts of questionable issues and blatant crimes, we have no direct evidence of any wrongdoing on the part of the Clinton Foundation or CGHI .... and yet, the "law and order" crowd around here is all over Clinton (for whom there is ZERO evidence of wrongdoing) and doing everything but offering to wash Trump's car or dirty linens for him a la Uriah Heep.

Something seems amiss.

I argue it's the alternative right that defends Trump, while the standard right attacks Clinton. They don't even seem like the same troop when conversing.

I dunno.

But, I do believe there are genuine Fiscal Conservative Republicans that are tired of this Right Wing crap and won't be voting for Trump.

It's also come out that 1 out of ever 8 dollars of Eric Trump's charity went to Trump. Somewhere around a million? I'd have to search for the link.

Most of it was going to renting Trump golf courses for charity golf tournaments.
