Starting the Clinton Foundation must have seemed like a brilliant idea at the time, but maybe Bill and Hillary are starting to regret it. Every day, Americans are hearing more scandalous details about this so-called “charity” and it’s becoming harder for Clinton supporters to spin away the grime.
More than likely the Clintons thought that if they got away with such crooked dealings for decades, this would not be dredged up and used against them with a liberal media as their accomplice. They seem to have underestimated the conservative competition.
Before the election even began, some investigators were doing the thankless job of revealing the Clintons’ sleazy con game. Here’s Warner Todd Huston at Breitbart.com:
Shocking revelations show that at least four members of the Clinton Foundation board of directors have either been charged or convicted of financial crimes, including bribery and fraud.
Citing Peter Schwiezer’s explosive book Clinton Case, Huston reports:
The Clintons put big donors and close pals on the board for reasons that are hard to fathom. In fact, at least four of these “board members” have either been charged or convicted of serious financial irregularities, crimes including bribery and fraud.
The most well-known of these board members is Vinod Gupta (…) In 2008 he was charged with fraud by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for using company funds to support his luxurious lifestyle.
That’s just the beginning. Other dubious Clinton Foundation bigwigs include trustee “Victor Dahdaleh, who “was charged by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) in Great Britain with paying more than 35 million pounds in bribes;” “Clinton Foundation board member and trustee Rolando Gonzalez Bunster, who ‘has been named in a fraud case in the Dominican Republic involving his company InterEnergy;’” and foundation trustee Sant Chatwal, “who has convictions for illegal campaign financing, obstruction of justice, and a list of other charges.”
If these people are high level operatives in the Clinton Foundation, imagine the kinds of people Hillary will appoint to sensitive government jobs if she becomes president.
