The Clinton foundation has received stellar grades from ALL charity watchdog organizations while 88% of their money goes out to the programs they help.

The Clinton Foundation is a GREAT organization that has helped millions and saved lives. You're just flat out wrong.

Well the Clinton Foundation is s fraud and Hillary did enable her husband's rape of women but the email server is much bigger fir the security breach alone.



I love desperate posts like this by righties.

Just throw everything at the wall and hope something sticks!

Being flat out wrong has never stopped Duffy before; why should it now? He's an extremist who staunchly opposes logic. He seems to think it a point of honor to stubbornly defend a ridiculous position (admitting he's wrong being out of the question).

But wait...EMAILS EMAILS EMAILS!!!! HILLARY SENT EMAILS!!!!! NOTHING ELSE MATTERS!!!!! BURN HER ALIVE!!!!!!!!

Whew, sorry, I accidentally took a sip of Republican Kool-Aid.

She destroyed emails and sent them over an insecure server intentionally. It shows she does not have the judgment for the office of potus.

The Clinton Foundation spent less than 6% of it's total revenue in charitable contributions in 2014.

Article

Right there on page 1: Form 990

Total Revenue: $172,579,474 in contributions and grants.

Grants and SimilarAccounts Paid: $5,160,385

This is false and a debunked talking point. The Clinton foundation does their charity work IN HOUSE. what this means that instead of appropriating their money in the form of grants to other organizations that then do the work, the foundation employs its OWN people to do the work.

It truly is amazing how severely misinformed people are and don't know it.

Again, the Clinton foundation has received stellar grades from all charity watchdog organizations. You really think they'd get an A if they only spent 6% on actual charity? Geez. Get real.

That is what they gave in grants, not what they spent on charitable works.

I guess the DNC and HRC are really pretty good at securing stuff. It's things like this that has Bernie fans up in arms. Although the Bernie campaign wasn't innocent.

I honestly don't get the Clinton campaign. They are the slowest to react campaign I've ever seen. Just until recently, last week or so iirc, they are getting Sanders, Warren, Michelle out to stump for HRC to get the younger vote? Did they not realize that when Hillary all but won this wouldn't be a problem? Did it only take a nosedive in the polls for them to react? This is in my opinion is a reactive campaign not a proactive. And it cost her in 2008. Will it this time? I don't know.

Bottom line, the Clinton Foundation spent its funds to save millions of lives. The Trump Foundation spent it's funds on an autographed Tim Tebow helmet and settling Trump's corporate lawsuits. The Trump smear campaign against the Clinton Foundation is just another ruse to deflect criticism from Trump's own felony tax evasion. And that's what it is when you use a quarter-million dollars in charitable donations to cover corporate expenses.

Not to come off attacking this because it is a valid point, I like to play devils advocate and I don't know the answer. But what tangible results has it produced with so called in house staff?
