Clinton Foundation

Self Description

Third-Party Descriptions

September 2016: 'After McDonnell, public officials who simply meet with constituents, or host swanky events for them, or even hook them up with academic researchers, are just doing their jobs. As the court established—showing great solicitude for the beleaguered politician who just wants to go fishing with contributors or drink a good bottle of wine—“pay for access” is now permissible, whereas pay for stuff in exchange is not. This is why Fox News’ talk of going after Hillary Clinton for the Clinton Foundation’s activities is largely farcical; there is simply no evidence that she committed any official act in exchange for gifts. But this is where Bondi and Trump start to look a little closer to the line.'

June 2016: "And Bill Clinton's non-profit has been a headache for Hillary Clinton's campaign. The Clinton Foundation has pulled in millions from foreign nationals, has suffered from embarrassing security lapses."

QUOTE: Why is a charity giving money to aid a pol with whom the foundation’s head has pending legal business?....Reading through the court’s language in McDonnell, the easier hurdle is “official acts.” The justices were not certain that McDonnell’s various phone calls and luncheons represented official acts...

Jun 22, 2016 Is Donald Trump right about Hillary Clinton?

QUOTE: ...Trump raised valid questions about Clinton's foreign policy positions, fund-raising practices and email quandary -- but he did so in his vintage over-the-top fashion, with so many personal insults that many will ignore or forget the substance of his criticism.
