This morning I'm sipping some strong, hot, black coffee and clicking through some random news articles and of course a link leads to a link... which is where I ended up reading this editorial opinion pieces from observer.com (http://observer.com/2016/07/up-next-for-the-fbi-clinton-foundation-corruption).
".......... Brown is just one of several Clinton super delegates to recently be exposed for fraudulent activity. Late last month, Congressman Chaka Fattah was convicted on charges of racketeering, corruption and stealing charitable funds. Senator Bob Menendez, Governor Andrew Cuomo, Governor Dannel Malloy, and former Virginia Governor who served as Clinton’s 2008 campaign chair, Terry McAuliffe, are also in the midst of corruption probes.
It would appear that only Hillary and Bill truly
seem to understand how to launder funds for political favors, with the
Clinton Foundation front-and-center for aspiring pupils of white collar
Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, Huma Abedin, received money from the Clinton Foundation (while employed by the State Department) and from Teneo Consulting—a firm owned by a close Clinton associate, Declan Kelly. Kelly built his network while working at the State Department under Clinton. In April, Politico reported that
Kelly’s relationship with Clinton’s State Department, “represents a
fresh illustration of the blurring of the lines between Hillary
Clinton’s political network and her State Department that critics have
In 2011, ABC News revealed Rajiv Fernando, a Clinton Foundation donor, was appointed to an Intelligence Board at the State Department by Clinton
despite having no background or qualifications for the role. Shortly
after ABC began asking questions, Fernando quietly resigned.
The Clinton Foundation also paid Sidney Blumenthal $200,000 a month to advise Hillary Clinton on State Department matters. According to The Hill, the FBI has yet to rule out the Clinton Foundation‘s influence on Hillary Clinton‘s State Department, as there have been multiple conflicts of interest between the two.
An investigation by Vox revealed
at least 181 Clinton Foundation donors lobbied the State Department
while Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state. UBS, for example, paid Bill Clinton $1.5 million in speaking fees shortly after Hillary Clinton helped the Swiss bank settle a lawsuit with the IRS—for a fraction of what the IRS initially sought.
Clinton Foundation donations have also been linked to State Department favors to weapons manufacturers and foreign governments. Peter Schweitzer’s book, Clinton Cash, cites four trustees of the Clinton Foundation charged with or convicted of financial crimes. Aside from the security risks her private email server posed, evidence suggests Clinton’s intent was not convenience, but rather to circumvent FOIA laws.
Billionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who claims to
have co-founded the Clinton Global Initiative, served 13 months in jail
for soliciting prostitution from a minor. Epstein is the subject of
ongoing litigation involving several other underage victims, and flight
logs from Epstein’s private jet show Bill Clinton flew with him at least 26 times. Vice News reported one of Epstein’s victims, Virginia Roberts, told her attorneys she had damaging information on Bill Clinton.
Since Bill left the White House in 2000, the Clinton Foundation has build the Clinton name into a brand to provide networking opportunities for Hillary Clinton’s political
career. The charity has been used to unprecedented degrees to leverage
power and influence for political gains, with little transparency and
In their investigation of donations to the Clinton Foundation, Politifact recently
claimed “Nonprofits, such as the Clinton Foundation, have nearly no
obligation to publicly reveal who gives them money. They might need to
tell a government agency, but the details remain confidential.”
The Clinton Foundation blurs lines between politics, business,
charity and public service, and the ability to investigate the
Foundation’s litany of questionable donations is compromised. For all
the millions of dollars that have passed through the Clinton Foundation, it will be challenging—even for the Clintons—to evade an indictment if Hillary is elected president."
