Skip to comments.BILL & HILL'S LATEST INTRIGUE (sordid stories about Bill/Hill's finances)
Posted on 12/21/2007 3:26:54 AM PST by Liz
When it comes to Bill and Hillary's finances, there's always a sordid little back story - and loads of unanswered questions. And that's precisely the case with more than $500 million that's been donated to the William J. Clinton Foundation. Hillary and her hubby are now facing numerous - and entirely justified - queries about all the cash Bill is raking in for his charitable foundation and presidential library. But the former prez apparently doesn't want Americans to know who's behind all that cash. He says he can't disclose their names because of confidentiality agreements.

Frank Giustra, top, runs a group that gave $31 million to the Clinton Foundation; Sir Tom Hunter began donating $10 million a year in 2006; and Bernard L. Schwartz has pledged $1 million.
Who else is sick of these folks?
"The Clinton Foundation is probably the worlds largest money laundering machine for the Clintoons. The Clintoon Foundation makes other left-wing phony non-profits look like toy money-laundering machines."
There are probably zillions of ways tax-exempt foundations can launder funds---through accounting maneuvers like phony reimbursements, legal fees, phantom employees on the payroll, miscellaneous expenses, bonuses, pay raises, admin expenses, nonexistent building funds, etc.
FReeper Calpernia turned us on to ID theft as the means to political money-laundering. ID theft allows politicians to launder their own money from suspect sources into their campaigns-----stolen names are used as "campaign donors" in FEC reports.
I would add that corporate donors to tax-exempt foundations are not necessarily altruists eager to help the less fortunate. Corporate CEO's may have colluded with politicians in illegal activities to include multiple conspiracies of illegal conversion of funds.
Corporate assets of publicly-traded companies may have been removed to Foundations without stockholder's knowledge through various methods: misusing corporate reserve accounts, concealing losses, inflating asset values and improperly accounting for transactions, as well as deferring profits into reserve accounts, improperly shifting capital funding to other projects.
All out of sight of the FEC, SEC, IRS and US banking laws.
I'm hoping for well over 50% of the voting public (gotta allow a healthy buffer to cover those dead votes, illegal alien votes, and general Demonkat vote fraud)).
Feels "oily" just reading it...
Trust me, it is “oily”!
Isn’t that just about the height of arrogance? He even tells the world that it’s happening and then later both of them will deny having any knowledge of such goings-on.
I will never understand how these two can attract the support of so many sheeple. Leading lambs unto the slaughter? Of course, it would be a socialist slaughter, no one gets off the killing floor alive, unless they’ve donated enough to the clintoon cause.
These people are simply unbelievable.
If you look up RICO in a law dictionary, there is a photo of Hill & Bubba.
Bill and Hilly will push it too far, of course. When it all blows up in a few years (as the result of someone dying, or a bank collapsing, or a large-scale terror attack) it will mean the end of presidential foundations and presidential libraries.
And that might be the only worthwhile thing to come out of this, Steely Tom. That this degree of opaqueness is permitted at all is scandalous.
The foundation then pledges the money as collateral for Hillary’s loan and chelsa,s face lift loan
Amen to that FRiend !
"Three months ago, recall, Hillary's campaign was obliged to hurriedly refund $850,000 in contributions linked to Hsu after it turned out he'd been a fugitive for 15 years on charges of defrauding investors"
Yet one more in an endless string of lies. The Beast did NOT return that money, at least the majority of it. The MSM always plays fast and loose with the truth by focusing heavily on irrelevant details and totally ignoring the unpleasant and undesired facts. The Post isn't actually engaged in deception here necessarily, but the article repeats the popular lie so often repeated in the MSM.
Liberalism + MSM = FILTH. It always adds up.
Perhaps the agreements were required by bubba?
Only DIRTY people associate with the Clintons and give them money....ONLY DIRTY CROOKS.
DIRTY....waaaaaaay past oily.
There he goes again with the Lawyer-Speak. Present tense. Of course, if there is some conflict past-tense, that's ok.
While you're at it, Bill, tell us all again about how you don't get taxed enough, and why you have investments in the Caymans.
Therrrre's a familiar name.
