Soul-Searching at Clinton Foundation in Trump Era

  1. With nothing left to sell they are laying off over 100 people!! I bet you Bill's salary isnt getting cut.

    The Clinton Foundation is a money laundering fraud and the Clintons are the most corrupt people to ever occupy the White House.

    Bye Bye Crooked Hillary

    The Clintons loves political criminals

    Chelsea Clinton's Father in Law was a career politician, Her father in law, Edward Mezvinsky served as a Democratic congressman from Iowa and in the U.S. House of Representatives.

    Edward Mezvinsky was found guilty of fraud in 2001 and served time in prison.

    Man you can't make this stuff up

    The foundation obviously is failing, just like her bid for the White House.

    However, her opponents made up lies and accusations to smear her during the campaign and win the election. It was dirty politics. The Clintons take no salary and have donated millions. There are apparently members making six figure salaries but not the Clintons. The money laundering accusations and other accusations are right wing spin and rhetoric at the moment, started by Cotton during the campaign. Doubtful anything will come of that.

    Still, it's accurate that it's on the downslide.

    I would love to see an FBI investigation into the foundation, some new sources say they are under investigation but who knows, Media is only speculations.

    I feel like Hillary is a major witch, and from Secret Service reports she appears to be very hateful, and her not coming on stage to talk to her supporters the night of the election proved she had lost it and was probably out of control.

    As far as Bill Clinton, I was fan of Bill during his 8 years, I didn't get too worked up about his extra marital affairs, It was good times in the USA.

    But what made me not like him was the way he tried to act the last year, He tried to tell a crowd that Trump was racist by using the term "MAGA". Bill came from Arkansas the capital of the KKK, and you know as a youth he had to be pro KKK. Trump was a form New York, I am sure he was much accepting of other races. If you ever traveled in Arkansas you would understand what I am talking about.

    Most of those media sources are pretty right wing, so we'll see.

    It no sense that just because he's from Arkansas he had to be pro-KKK as a youth. I'm from the home of where the White Patriot Party is in North Carolina but that doesn't mean I was pro White Patriot Party.

    But who knows about Clinton and it can only be speculation and one if free to do that and go with their gut feelings I suppose.

    On this very forum a long while back I said she was a horrible candidate with too much baggage to become President and I was proven correct.

    To me the Clinton's are yesterday's news and irrelevant. I hope they continue to do charity work, but as far as politics go, it's over for them. They should use former President Carter as an example.

    Nah
    If we are going to spend government and tax player dollars investigating something it should be for investigating the depth of Russian influence in the Trump Presidency.
    How compromised is Trump?
    Where is the recording of Trump's conversation with Putin? What are they using to blackmail him?

    Changing the subject to an off topic is an ineffective response to the original topic. In my opinion.

    Meh

    Government investigation is the pertinent topic and Trump is the pertinent person to be investigated.

    I can just see the liberal tears flowing from your eyes, Get over it Trump won. People like you make me relish and enjoy ever so much more in a Trump victory.

    And the father of Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, was convicted of illegal campaign contributions, tax evasion, and witness tampering, and served time in Federal prison. What's your point, exactly?

    Kushner père, the ex-con, disbarred attorney, made a $100k contribution to The Donald's campaign (at least, that's the money we know about).

    The witness tampering charges were related to his having paid a prostitute to seduce his brother-in-law, recording the sexual activity between the prostitute and BIL, and then threatening the BIL that he would turn over the tape to his sister if BIL testified against him in court (hmmm, extortion and blackmail involving illicitly recorded sexual activities with prostitutes -- sounds familiar ...)

    You're right, you can't make this stuff up.

    Trump has a long history of business ties to criminals and mobsters. If I were a Trumpster, I would not be going out of my way to start conversations about politicians' criminal connections.

    And, while it has obviously been damaged by the smear campaign carried out by Repugs during the campaign season, the Clinton Foundation has always been highly rated as a legitimate charitable foundation by the independent organizations that review and rank charities. It has operated legally and filed all the required financial documentation. It has been widely viewed as having done a great deal of good for a lot of people around the world. This is in stark contrast to the Trump "foundation," which has been observed to be blatantly double-dealing, in violation of the regulations under which charitable foundations operate, and has been discovered to have been operating in New York without having filed the necessary paperwork or obtained the necessary permits, and is now under state investigation. I would go so far as to assume that the only individuals the Trump foundation has ever actually benefitted are the members of the Trump family.

    But keep telling yourself whatever you have to to get through the day ...

    When one can't argue a point or take another person's opinion, the good old "Get over it Trump won" comes out. Yawn

    ..
    Bill Clinton was charged with perjury and obstruction of justice, Hillary Clinton was under investigation by FBI for her Email. So being a criminal is part of the family plan in the Clinton or maybe it is part of the plan in the democratic party.
