Politico: Bill Let Taxpayers Fund His Foundation and His Private Server

   This Politico story about Bill Clinton using government programs to aid ex Presidents to support his foundation and private email server is another smoking gun the liberal elites will see as no big deal. It's just another glaring example of how the Clinton's monetized politics well beyond normal salaries and benefits....
     I've got several Dem friends who are lawyers and surely know right and wrong but they are willing to dismiss corruption at epic levels just to elect Hillary Clinton.
     Meanwhile the media spin on the Mexico trip by Trump continues to amaze....Even though, you could see worry today on the Peacock Network as polls tighten.

It all comes down to this crazy need for the first criminal president. O this wouldn't be the first? Okay I guess I agree on that. O it is the need for the first lady president who lies a lot. I got it.

This is potentially another Republican witch hunt. Will there be hearings on the matter? The problem is there are so many insidious, yet unproven, accusations against Bill and Hillary Clinton, such as Benghazhi, Whitewater and the emails, that the public would be not be able to tell if a substantive accusation was true. Let's call it the Chicken Little effect.

BTW, George W. Bush received more in total taxpayer support ($1.1 million) than Bill Clinton did (about $925,000) in FY2015.

Amazing. No matter what puke is required, NY21UnderAnythingNecessary is up to the task. You and the Hero are proof positive that many now love their party more than anything in life. Dufus, Benghazi, emails disappearing, bribes, and lies are not witch hunts, they are facts. And no matter how far you bend over for the party, they are not going anywhere.

Relax NY21 and desperate/4:01, the story reports nothing illegal was found. And we all know with the Lying Sack in the White House it wouldn't have mattered if they did. She/he didn't mean to do it. Nah, this is just more Skank stink from your champeeen.

It is amazing that crooked Hilliary's crooked husband actually got turned down for some of his expense requests, considering the govenrment is run by his fellow donkey party crooked Obama. I guess some things are even too crooked for Obama to sign-off on.

GSA as I said today on the Hotline, says nothing was illegal ... and BTW: GSA provides at this point in history $96,000.00 to all retired presidents except for those who refuse it like Jimmy Carter has for years.

Half reporting for partisan gain is just as bad as the "suspected" "crime" itself ... rely on facts not raw opinion and narrow views.

Difficult for most who post at this trough I know, but try it sometime -- it's called critical thinking and good sound research and it's very enlightening to know the whole truth ... not FOX-type spin.

Yes Dan, when it came out that Planned Parenthood valued intact baby parts more than chopped up ones, you told us then too that PP "broke no laws". I'm gratified to know that you are there to reinforce what few values we have left. Maybe there was "no controlling legal authority". Leave it to you to explain crap.

Dan, the GSA is not in the business of performing investigations, prosecutions or ruling on law, how would they know if nothing was illegal or not?

The fact is that Clinton had some of the expenses he submitted, turned down. Its not just morally reprehensible that he submitted expenses that needed to be turned down, but if they are obvious enough that they should not have been submitted, (like they are) then the act of submitting them in the first place, is a crime.

Critical thinking?? Wake up. Trump's business ethics certainly can be questioned but in private business, I suppose it's always about the bottom line. The Clinton's have stole money from taxpayers for years. Hillary Clinton would be in jail if not for her position in government. This is not the type of individual that should have the power of the presidency. One controversy after another yet all her minions do is make excuse after excuse of why she isn't guilty of being a first class scumbag. And we sit here still and can't name any of her accomplishments. I am not sure what is worse, Clinton or her blind followers who are incapable of thinking critically, as the term has been used.

"Under Guise of Humanitarian Work Foundation generated Large Speaking fees for Clintons"

What the current email releases show, is that HRC was willing to use the Sate Dept. to get passports illegally for Foundation Staffer Doug Band a Clinton Staffer.

In March 2009, two American journalists, Euna Lee and Laura Ling, were arrested in North Korea & sentenced to 12 years hard labor.

Bill Clinton decided to make a humanitarian visit to Korea on their behalf to secure their release.

The fact that is that Bill Clinton went to Korea and put a deal together where the passport of Mr. Band wasn't stamped, which made the request a moot point, but doesn't relegate the most important aspect of the passport requests meaningless.

The request never should have been handled seriously by HRC Staff, because it was illegal to do so, and showed the seepage from the Foundation to the Sec. of States Office.

Make no mistake about it - the Clintons made their Six figure speaking fees on the notion they could get things done for big donors. In a very real sense they made money via large fees, because the Big Foundation Donors felt the State Dept. was open for business favors they could buy with those large donations.

Only the most corrupt Justice Dept. of my lifetime would ignore HRC Clinton's behavior as Sec. of State, and the email server was set up to keep the public from finding out about Foundation activities. This is all about how large Donations, or speaking fees were generated as a result of influence pedaling through the Foundation in the first place.

HRC signed a pledge going into State, that Foundation activities would never cross over into her State Dept. but they did and seemingly on a routine level under the guise of humanitarian work.

Isn't amazing Hermit...the whole basis of the Clinton campaign has been focused on two things...Trump is a hater and we aren't crooks...just oozes presidential doesn't it? Clinton has nothing to run on. No platform, nothing. Embarrassing. It's because of her obvious weakness that a nutjob like Trump could even be in the running. Now, he isn't just in the running, he is catching up. Again, please do tell..how is Mrs. Clinton right for the job. Oops, none of you can't.

She will still win in November, 2:21. Waah waah waah...

8:27, you may very well be right. We could see a Skank victory. But is that all you are about? You know darn well the American people will be able to believe absolutely nothing she says. Everything she does will be as it has been in the past. Secrets, misleading information and outright lies, bribe money from foreign nations, missing records, favoritism, pay for play, and more and more divisive leadership involving race, hatred of our police, demonizing all that oppose her, and continued decay of our way of life and our economy. You may indeed end up waah, waahing. Unless of course you're a Dannie and party is all that matters to you. It won't effect me. My bucks are guaranteed, just like the golf course hero. I don't get to avoid taxes like he does but I'll be ok. Your kids? They be screwed. They might be waah, waahing a bit too. As I've said many times. I have no kids. I certainly don't mind screwing yours. Waah.

I am not the target or moron attacks here or thee misplaced anger .... my opinions and views are just as valid as anyone else who drinks at this trough ... so back the f**k off.

No Dan, your opinions have been issued to you by your party. Your views are nothing but partisan nonsense. Nice profanity. I'm not sure what "thee misplaced anger" means, but this is not about anger. It's about partisanship that controls your entire being, as it were.
