Piling Onto The Clinton Scandals: What Hillary And The Family Foundation Didn’t Tell Obama

Reports all over the news organizations, conservative and not, are all saying the same thing: Hillary Clinton supporters, even down to the grass roots, are getting nervous.  Every time they turn around, there’s a new scandal, or new details to an old scandal that really just does not make her look good.  Last week it was the disastrous press conference on the private email server, and this week…well, it seems that Hillary Clinton said she would keep the Obama Administration informed on who the donors to the Clinton Foundation were, and as it turns out they stopped doing that in 2010.

Reuters had the exclusive on Thursday of this week:

In 2008, Hillary Clinton promised Barack Obama… to publish all the donors on an annual basis to ease concerns that as secretary of state she could be vulnerable to accusations of foreign influence.

At the outset, the Clinton Foundation did indeed publish what they said was a complete list of the names of more than 200,000 donors and has continued to update it. But in a breach of the pledge, the charity’s flagship health program, which spends more than all of the other foundation initiatives put together, stopped making the annual disclosure in 2010, Reuters has found.

In response to questions from Reuters, officials at the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) and the foundation confirmed no complete list of donors to the Clintons’ charities has been published since 2010. CHAI was spun off as a separate legal entity that year, but the officials acknowledged it still remains subject to the same disclosure agreement as the foundation. …

CHAI should have published the names during 2010-2013, when Clinton was in office, CHAI spokeswoman Maura Daley acknowledged this week. “Not doing so was an oversight which we made up for this year,” she told Reuters in an email when asked why it had not published any donor lists until a few weeks ago.

Neither of the Clintons could be reached for comment while they are attending to their very busy travel schedules.

Given that there was no Inspector General at the State Department during Mrs. Clinton’s tenure as Secretary, and that there are multiple instances outlined in the Reuters piece of foreign governments donating to the Clinton Foundation or CHAI during the 2010-2013 time frame when there was no disclosure of donors, operations might well have been innocent and truly meant for the betterment of circumstances around the world, but the optics are very bad for Hillary.  This is just one more not so small scandal that would be magnified to the nth degree if the person causing it – real or imagined – was a Republican.

The one comfort everyone should take from these scandals, is that at long last, the Clinton grass roots are rethinking the wisdom of backing Hillary for president.  If she tries to gloss over these scandals, what else is she going to try to do that just doesn’t pass any sort of smell test?

    It does not matter how many laws she bends or outright breaks people will still be STUPID enough to vote for her. Look at Obammy he proved to be both a TRAITOR and LIAR and people voted him into office twice. So Hillary came do as she pleases and people will still try to make her Obammy’s replacement. If the entire Democratic party were to get some brains that worked properly there would be NO Democrats. See Democrats HATE America and want it DESTROYED and if Hillary gets elected that is exactly what will happen. See after 8 years of Obammy no one wants any more to do with the LIARS of the Democratic party but if she runs they will vote her in just because she will give Democrats what they want which is America gone. Obammy has done everything he can to kill America and she will further that MURDER by making sure the LGBT SICKOS get the LIE of Gay Marriage. See that action(allowing the LIE of Gays marrying)will DESTROY the Constitution and that will end America. So if Democrats get their wish she will be the NEXT SICKNESS to infect the White House if America gets what they need she will become a jailbird awaiting her hanging along with every other member of either of Obammy’s time in office for the TREASON and TERRORISM they have committed.

    Honesty and integrity should be the first attributes when considering a candidate. Voters are stupid, and that is why we have the issues in government that will continue to grow unless a clear message is sent. Impeach, arrest, and convict ANYONE who choose to violate the rules, laws, or the U.S. Constitution.

    God is forgiving (to a point). At some point even GOD gives up on people. Does America really want to get on his Bad side? Elect Clinton or Keep Obama in office and America will find out just how bad that bad side really is. Look to your bible to see what happens when God gives up.
