Chelsea Clinton to remain on family foundation board

Chelsea Clinton to remain on family foundation board

"Have you seen what this man is called on a daily basis?"

It's inappropriate to fault the AP for reporting something none of us knew and that is worth understanding: People who have donated to the Clinton Foundation aren't barred from meeting with Hillary Clinton, and it's likely that it's easier for a big donor to the foundation, her campaigns or her personal bank account (think Wall Street speeches) to get face time with her. "It is now abundantly clear that the Clintons set up a business to profit from public office". If some voters suspect that the Democratic nominee is too dishonest to elect over Donald Trump, what could she possibly say to change their minds?

By contrast, Andrea, just two blocks from 30 Rock, NBC's headquarters in NY, there is a building, a property one of the crowned jewels of Donald Trump's business holdings that pays him millions of dollars a year. The Kingdom of Bahrain reportedly gave between $50,000 and $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation. Emails from her private server reveal communications between foundation representatives and her aides about setting up meetings between America's top diplomats and the Clinton Foundation's top donors, including Gilbert Chagoury, a Lebanese-Nigerian billionaire.

Of all the people outside of government who officially met with Hillary Clinton during her tenure as Secretary of State, more than half have donated to the Clinton Foundation, according to a new Associated Press report.

"We also have not determined if they involve Secretary Clinton".

"Donald Trump and his bottom line and his networks are directly connected to all kinds of worldwide entities. and nobody's asking him to disclose or divest", Mook said of the NY businessman.

The request was made through the foundation and Doug Band, former chairman of the Clinton Foundation. It's a nonprofit foundation.

Fallon posted a series of tweets about the people included in the AP's analysis who were not just donors to the Clinton Foundation but globally recognized figures - including Nobel Prize-winning economist Muhammad Yunus, Melinda Gates and Elie Wiesel, Nobel laureate and Holocaust survivor.

"That's what they came to do apparently was live in the shadows", he continued.

The report did confirm that neither Clinton nor husband Bill violated legal agreements they signed when she became Secretary of State in 2009 by receiving money for these meetings. But if they were innocent, then why did she send emails containing classified information to these people? "In fact, the State Department itself said there was no evidence of any impropriety at all". "Should Ms. Clinton win, all of that work and all of the foundation's assets should be spun off to an organization with no ties to the first family".

Republican National Committee spokesman Sean Spicer told MSNBC Clinton was only talking about Trump and race this week to deflect attention from that controversy. "The Clinton Foundation must be immediately shut down and an independent special prosecutor be appointed to determine if access to Hillary Clinton was for sale".

Ms. Clinton's presidential campaign said it believed the would air in the hotly contested states of Florida, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Hillary Clinton said Friday the charitable programs of her family foundation would continue, perhaps through partnerships with other organizations, if she's elected president, even as critics argue that would present a conflict of interest. She has contrasted Trump with former Republican presidential candidates John McCain and Bob Dole, and former President George W. Bush, praising their decisive steps to counter racism and anti-Muslim sentiment. And, in the end, it's a price worth paying.
