    ...April 15, ... the Clinton Global Initiative is formally shut down. The CGI is a program of the Clinton Foundation, centered around ... networking event of choice for corporations, nonprofits, nongovernmental organizations and wealthy philanthropists. -snip- But there was never much official explanation of why CGI would need to shut down in the case of a Clinton defeat. After all, the world didn't run out of poor people or sick people on November 8. But after the election, some of the foundation's donors acted as if the causes CGI supported were no longer worthy. -snip- Why would foreign governments suddenly...

    Hillary Clinton received a pointed question during the final debate that echoed a criticism she has faced for months: Was her family's global charity a "pay-to-play" arrangement in which donors got special favors from her State Department? She did not initially respond with a direct yes or no. "Well, everything I did as secretary of state was in furtherance of our country's interests and our values," she said as she went on to list a number of Clinton Foundation achievements such as distributing HIV medication. When moderator Chris Wallace asked her again, Clinton responded that "there's no evidence" - but...

    Washington (CNN)Newly released emails from Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state raise questions about the nature of the department's relationship with the Clinton Foundation. Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group, released 296 pages of emails from the Democratic presidential nominee, including 44 that Judicial Watch says were not previously handed over to the State Department by Clinton. The emails, many of which are heavily redacted, raise questions about the Clinton Foundation's influence on the State Department and its relations during her tenure. In one instance, top Clinton Foundation official Doug Band lobbied Clinton aides for a job for someone...

    Former presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Monday sounded no closer to endorsing Mitt Romney than when he dropped out of the race last week, telling supporters on a conference call that he hasn’t even had a chance to speak to his onetime rival. Santorum said he has talked with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. “I haven't had a chance yet to talk to Governor Romney, but we'll be talking to both of them and we’re going to go out and do what we believe is in the best interest of our country,” Santorum said in the call, which had at...

    Almost Three weeks ago, Democratic Congressman Joe Sestak made an astounding revelation. The White House offered a plum job in the administration if he would only drop his primary battle against now Democrat, former Republican, former Democrat, Arlen Specter. Both Fox News and the Philadelphia Enquirer spoke to unnamed White House officials, who insisted on “anonymity,” but had denied the congressman’s claim. Sestak, meanwhile, has repeatedly stood by his assertion that the administration offered him a job in exchange for not running against Specter. Last week White House press secretary Robert Gibbs was asked the question out in the Instead...

    Maybe when City College of NY is done building Charlie Rangel's favorite Pork project, the $1.95 million, federal earmark funded Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service one of the first courses they could teach is "Playing Fast and Loose with Ethics 101." This past September Rangel admitted that he failed to report $75 thousand in taxes. A few weeks earlier it was discovered that he was using four rent-controlled apartments, one for an office which while legal, is immoral for someone of his income. Here is the real fun part. Rangel is the chairman of the House Ways and...
