You are reading page 2 of Soul-Searching at Clinton Foundation in Trump Era. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

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?

..

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.

Clinton was impeached yes. Being an adulterer and lying about it is not shocking criminal behavior..sad to say...as evidenced by the free pass Mr. Trump gets for being a womanizer bragging about the ability to commit sexual assault.

Mrs. Clinton might have been investigated but wasn't charged with a crime. As of yet, she's not a criminal.

So "being criminal" as part of a family plan is a spin. Something conservatives are quite good which is part of their plan. They are pretty good at it I might say.

My, my markperry- for someone who likes to whine about lies & 'fake news', your OP is heavy on supposition & very light on facts.

Since others have pointed out that that the Clinton foundation does good, where as trump's foundation has been found to benefit no one but him- well, except for the Florida AG he bribed- I'll bypass that one.

I'll educate you on that point about djt being from NY and more racially tolerant (paraphrasing). Yes, he's so racially blind he's been sued for not allowing African Americans to rent his apartments. (among many, many recent racist comments & actions)

Instead of assuming Clinton is tied to KKK because he's from the south- which shows your ignorance- look up djt's father's arrest at a klan rally/protest in 1927. Any such records on Clinton?

Since I'm not a Clinton supporter, or a democrat, your little rants against the Clintons don't accomplish your goals. Your whining, "we won, get over it" is the typical, predictable response of your ilk. What you don't understand is that WE have moved on- you haven't.

For people like you, when you don't have the Hillary boogeyman to compare trump to, he doesn't look so good. So that's why you keep beating the Hillary horse. Why you compare his failings to hers. When he's forced to stand on his own 'merits', he fails miserably. I know, you can not possibly come anywhere near admitting that, and that's ok. We know the truth.

Regardless of the unhealthy fixation on Clinton, we will not pretend like there's no need to investigate Russian interference with our election or the likelihood that Trump is being blackmailed.

Senate panel to investigate Russian election interference

Oh, absolutely not! My suspicion is that is why we will never see herr trump's tax returns.

My husband & I discussed this endlessly before the election. My supposition regarding why he wouldn't release tax returns were for 1 (or more) of 3 reasons. That he doesn't pay much or anything in taxes. That he has lied about charitable donations. Or business dealings with Russia which he repeatedly denied.

Well, he admitted not paying taxes & said that made him smart. A reporter did an exhaustive investigation trying to find charities he donated to & reported it. (Found none, btw).

There were suppositions of Russian interference prior to election. I would be very interested in seeing those tax returns.

I'm in favor of investigating the Russian links, his conflicts of interest and any other thing that will hinder him carrying out nefarious activities or just go ahead & get him impeached.

If anyone could stand to do some actual soul-searching, it would be The Donald, but, sadly, he appears incapable of any kind of introspection.

Another characteristic of a narcissist.

Howard Stern recently said that he believed Trump's mental health will suffer because of the public disapproval that accompanies the position.

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

Bill doesn't get a salary or any other payment from the Clinton Foundation, neither does Chelsea or Hillary.

The Clinton Foundation is one of the world's major providers of treatment of childhood diseases in impoverished countries, they're the largest single provider of HIV treatment in Africa, among various other health and anti-poverty initiatives.

Up until recently anyway, I would have agreed that there was some potential for conflict, even though Clinton herself didn't stand to benefit from donations to the foundation, and as your article pointed out there was never any evidence of quid-pro-quo, there was still the potential for those who wanted to gain favor with Clinton to potential do so by giving money to poor kids and making sure she noticed.

That potential conflict now seems pretty tame. We've now got a president who's argued that it's not a conflict to mix decisions that would benefit him personally with decisions that should be based only on national interests.

You are like a broken record.

We know for sure the DNC interfered with the election. We know for sure by leaked emails that the DNC was supportive of Hillary and made it difficult if not almost impossible for Bernie to win the primaries.

I think the next DNC leader was caught giving questions to Hillary.

Instead of an investigation and charges, the person was allowed to walk. Debbie Schultz should of been relieved from office and no longer allowed to represent her people, but instead she is still working in the House.

It was so funny how that was swept under the rug

We both know once you have power or fame or wealth, woman will throw themselves at you. It's hard to say no especially if the bait is enticing, I get it. As I have noted before, I don't hold Bill's good times against him while in the Whitehouse, and equally I am not offended by what Trump said while chatting with a buddy. I talk much worse when I am alone with my buddies out hunting or fishing.

Yes, they are a select few guys who aren't comfortable with that style of talking, I would say about 10%, but most guys talk like that and I am sure there is a large number of females who talk that way when hanging with their friends.

What if find almost funny, Is how many people stated they were offended? Yea Right. We all know how the real world works

I get that. Working around women, I know they talk just as raunchy and I certainly wouldn't want a recorder recording my private conversations. (However, I don't boast of assaulting/groaping people and neither do my coworkers or friends.)

I was more offended by the pass he got from his voters with an "it's just locker room talk" all the while criticizing Mrs. Clinton for her husband's infidelities and for saving her marriage. I was also offended that his response was to do a tit for tat deflections from himself and parade women whom accused Mr. Clinton of assault and people got all outraged, all the while he too had accusations of assault.

It was a strange election.

He won. Why are we talking about this?
