Charity watchdog: Clinton Foundation a ‘slush fund’


The Clinton Foundation’s finances are so messy that the nation’s most influential charity watchdog put it on its “watch list” of problematic nonprofits last month.
The Clinton family’s mega-charity took in more than $140 million in grants and pledges in 2013 but spent just $9 million on direct aid.
The group spent the bulk of its windfall on administration, travel, and salaries and bonuses, with the fattest payouts going to family friends.

This is an old article but it high lights the fact that there is a case for the investigation going on about this Foundation that seems to be nothing more than a vehicle to get money for the Clinton family with little actual charity and that charity is questionable.


with the fattest payouts going to family friends.
You could knock me over with a feather. (wink)


*[SIZE=4][SIZE=3]"The nonprofit came under fire last week following reports that Hillary Clinton, while she was secretary of state, signed off on a deal that allowed a Russian government enterprise to control one-fifth of all uranium producing capacity in the United States. Rosatom, the Russian company, acquired a Canadian firm controlled by Frank Giustra, a friend of Bill Clinton’s and member of the foundation board, who has pledged over $130 million to the Clinton family charity.

The group also failed to disclose millions of dollars it received in foreign donations from 2010 to 2012 and is hurriedly refiling five years’ worth of tax returns after reporters raised questions about the discrepancies in its filings last week."[/SIZE][/SIZE]*


Here is Charity Navigator’s page about the Clinton Foundation. The NYP article is dated April, 2015; Charity Navigator removed the Foundation from their Watch List in December, 2015, because their concern had been addressed.


***"Why isn’t this organization rated?

We had previously evaluated this organization, but have since determined that this charity’s atypical business model can not be accurately captured in our current rating methodology. Our removal of The Clinton Foundation from our site is neither a condemnation nor an endorsement of this charity. We reserve the right to reinstate a rating for The Clinton Foundation as soon as we identify a rating methodology that appropriately captures its business model.
What does it mean that this organization isn’t rated?

It simply means that the organization doesn’t meet our criteria. A lack of a rating does not indicate a positive or negative assessment by Charity Navigator."***

One can take this in several ways:

Clinton paid us to shut up and take them off the list.

Clinton told us that many who have crossed them over the years die shortly thereafter, wanna join them?

Clinton said that when Hitlery becomes POTUS we would get audited by the IRS, every year or NOT at all.

All of the above, some of the above!
