Hillary Clinton Pressed On Clinton Foundation Corruption

Hillary Clinton was repeatedly pressed on the Clinton Foundation’s scandals. She was not able to answer the questions without implicating herself so all she could do was dodge the questions.

The facts show that the Clinton Foundation repeatedly broke the rules in order to benefit the Clintons. In 2015, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Clinton Foundation dropped their ban on foreign donation to take money from foreign donors:

“The Clinton Foundation has dropped its self-imposed ban on collecting funds from foreign governments and is winning contributions at an accelerating rate, raising ethical questions as Hillary Clinton ramps up her expected bid for the presidency. Recent donors include the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Australia, Germany and a Canadian government agency promoting the Keystone XL pipeline.”

In fact, government watchdog group Sunlight Foundation called the Clinton Foundation a “slush fund” for the Clintons:

“‘It seems like the Clinton Foundation operates as a slush fund for the Clintons,’ said Bill Allison, a senior fellow at the Sunlight Foundation, a government watchdog group once run by leading progressive Democrat and Fordham Law professor Zephyr Teachout.”

Finally, the pay to play culture at the Clinton Foundation was so worrying that the New York Times editorial board called on Hillary Clinton to cut ties with her foundation. The Clintons’ used the Clinton Foundation as their own personal bank account, and now Hillary Clinton is paying the price.
