It seems to me, with all the feverish enthusiasm in certain quarters of Congress and the Senate to investigate President Trump ad nauseam, that it’s time to return the favor. When does the investigation start into the Clinton Foundation and the many, many allegations of corruption against it over the years? I’m sure you remember them. For example:
- The Clinton ‘Charity’ Begins at Home: Employment rolls for the Clinton Foundation show scads of political operatives—but this doesn’t seem to bother the IRS. (If the article is behind a paywall, you’ll find its full text here.)
- Clinton charity aided Clinton friends
- Quid Pro Quo: Clinton Foundation Gave Money To For-Profit Company Run By Clinton Friends
- Clinton charity arranged $2M pledge to firm owned by Bill’s ‘friend’
- The Clinton Foundation and Haiti Contracts (if the article is behind a paywall, you’ll find its full text here).
- The Clinton Foundation Reeks of Crooks, Thieves, and Hoods
- Media Orgs Donate to Clinton Foundation Then Downplay Clinton Foundation Scandal
There appears to be a whole lot more (and more convincing) evidence against the Clinton Foundation than against President Trump. That being the case, why isn’t it being investigated just as enthusiastically – and as vindictively?
I note, too, that private investigators are uncovering a great deal of material that should, I think, be far more widely publicized . . . but the mainstream media are almost completely ignoring it. For example, consider the work of Charles Ortel. Last year he wrote:
State, federal, and foreign laws bar public charities from being run for private gain in interstate commerce—which means, by using the mail, telephones or the internet. The Clinton Foundation’s complex operations (it is not just one entity but a web of them) do not comply with this requirement. Nor does the Clinton Foundation ever seem to have submitted its financial records to an independent, properly certified audit by a qualified accounting firm.
Overall I consider the Clinton Foundation to be a charity fraud network.
There’s more at the link, and in other entries on his Web site. He’s just one of those who’ve been digging for dirt about the Clinton Foundation. Most of those doing the digging appear to have found what they were looking for.
Isn’t it time we hauled all that data out into the light, and figured out how much of it is real, and how much is political smoke and mirrors? After all, if we’re doing that with the allegations concerning President Trump, isn’t it only fair and even-handed to do it to the other side as well? (Yes, yes, I know – naive question – but one can still ask it, no?)
