It has recently been discovered that half of the people who were non-government affiliated that met Hillary Clinton at the State Department were Clinton Foundation donors. This is another example of the long storied list of shady dealings that have been revealed as of late concerning Hillary Clinton. We now delve into the most recent example of Hillary’s crooked dealings.
The 85 out of 154 who conversed with Clinton while she was leading the State Department were heavy donors to the Clinton Foundation with at least 40 donating $100,000 and 20 giving $1,000,000. This presents direct evidence that Clinton’s foundation was a means to gain access to Hillary Clinton in the State Department. This arises even more suspicion because the Clinton Foundation has donors from foreign governments.
On Monday, Bill Clinton made a statement indicating that if Hillary Clinton wins the election he would be stepping down from the Clinton Foundation. He has also indicated that the Foundation would no longer receive donations from foreign groups. What is striking is that there is an obvious admission that Hillary Clinton’s association with the Clinton Foundation does create a conflict of interest regarding her connection to it and its affiliation with foreign groups. Nevertheless, this conflict of interest did not become a serious problem until the release of the emails detailing the existed of this pay for play scheme arranged by Mrs. Clinton. Of course, even if Bill Clinton does come through in his promises, it does not change the 6.000 donors who have already pledged $2 billion to the Clinton Foundation since its creation in 2000.
Some of these donations include pledges from financial firms like Blackstone who donated between $250,000 and $500,000, as well as eight Blackstone executives who also gave between $375,000 and $800,000. Blackstone is not the only corporate interest with ties to the Clinton Foundation. Estee Lauder, who pledged over $2,000,000, has also been named in a briefing of donors to the Clinton Foundation. An objective assessment of this situation adds further weight to the position that Clinton is toxically untrustworthy. At a time when the notion of rule of law is being questioned in America, we have continued evidence that persons like Hillary Clinton are often held to a different standard than the rest of society.
There is this notion that they ethos of any culture is influenced from the tone that is set at the top. If Hillary Clinton’s behavior is an indication of anything, it demonstrates a complete disregard of fair play and prosperity. If she become president, what sort of example can she provide to the rest of the American government that has grown so large as to be able to perform gross illegal acts that are unknown even to the President of the United States. In a time where more than anything else the country needs strong leadership that can set example, we have in Hillary Clinton the exact opposite of what this country needs. She is the complete manifestation of the corruption in American government that has made the American people lose faith in government.
