We have heard Hillary make a lot of BS promises, but her latest pledge is completely ludicrous. Now, she is essentially blackmailing every democrat voter in America by claiming that if she becomes President THEN she will stop accepting money from all of the these terror groups and corrupt agencies.
Pandering to terrorists is bad enough Mrs. Clinton, but continuously taking their blood money is just….foul. Then to bribe and blackmail, essentially holding America hostage in a way, is the lowest thing to date.
Call it chutzpah or just utter tone-deafness: The Clintons are now promising that the family foundation will stop taking foreign and corporate donations if Hillary wins the White House. Translation: If you don’t want to use your personal checkbook (or find a US-based straw donor), get your bribes in now. And even that promise turned out to have loopholes after just a day: The foundation’s largest single component, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, on Friday refused to rule out taking any and all donations. Which is par for the course. After all, the Clintons promised to stop pocketing cash from foreign governments once she became secretary of state — but didn’t. Last November, recall, the foundation had to refile six years worth of tax returns to account for foreign government cash it “forgot” to include the first time around. She also promised to keep State Department business entirely separate from the foundation’s work — yet her e-mails show her top aides at State regularly rushing to keep donors happy. Cash in the Clinton coffers translated into plum appointments, special high-level access and deals that left the Clintons themselves far richer than before. Let’s spell it out: Presidents don’t get to have private charities on the side. It’s an invitation to corruption, and a guarantee of the appearance of corruption. Do the Clintons really want their second White House stay to be plagued by the same endless scandal that plagued Bill’s presidency? Several FBI field offices pressed the Justice Department to investigate the Clinton Foundation over Hillary’s years at State. Justice declined — but will have no choice but to appoint an independent counsel to look into fresh allegations if she’s president. Even a growing number of Democrats are calling on the Clintons to just shut the foundation down now. Hand the whole thing over to the Gates Foundation or some other entity that plainly can never be a conduit for pay-to-play favors. Bill promises to turn the foundation over to “disinterested” third parties. Who gets to judge “disinterested” — Mr. “It depends on what the meaning of ‘is’ is”? And what ensures it doesn’t get handed right back in four or eight years? Even closing the foundation now won’t stop past donors from redeeming their chits in a Hillary White House. But it would be a start on reassuring the nearly 60 percent of Americans who say Hillary Clinton is neither honest nor trustworthy.
