Hillary Clinton came out and said that if she became president, the Clinton Foundation would stop accepting foreign and corporate donations. I guess that’s pretty noble of them considering she should have probably stopped accepting donations from foreign countries as soon as she was appointed Secretary of State by President Obama.
There are two ways to view this, either she’s really naive and didn’t know any better or she’s really corrupt and took advantage of her position in order to fill the “Clinton Dynasty” coffers. Anyway you want to spin this, it makes her look inept in becoming the next president of the United States.
Another bruise that won’t go away is the email scandal. Yes, it’s a scandal. It’s like that zit on your face that keeps coming back. It doesn’t matter how much you try to cover it up, it’s the first thing people notice when you talk to them.
The latest scoop is that another 15k emails were released. Already damning evidence linking her “right hand girl” Huma Abedin provided influential Clinton Foundation donors special, expedited access to the secretary of state. The preferential treatment provided to donors was at the specific request of Clinton Foundation executive Douglas Band.
The Abedin emails reveal that the longtime Clinton aide apparently served as a conduit between Clinton Foundation donors and Hillary Clinton while Clinton served as secretary of state. In more than a dozen email exchanges, Abedin provided expedited, direct access to Clinton for donors who had contributed from $25,000 to $10 million to the Clinton Foundation.
So, the Clintons are saying they will no longer accept donations but what about the donated money? The truth is, they should give it back. That would be the honorable thing to do especially since the money comes from certain countries that oppress women. We can’t have the “Women’s Champion” accepting donations from such countries, now can we.
So, if it’s considered “donation” money and the Clintons use it to help people, shouldn’t it go to helping the American people? Wouldn’t that be a pleasant fiction.
What do you think? America First?
