‘Out-of-control family affair’: Experts question Clinton Foundation’s true charitable spending

by Malia Zimmerman  |  published on May 4, 2015


The charity run by the Clintons has raised $2 billion since it was founded in 2001 — $144.3 million in 2013 alone — but only a small fraction of the take went to its “life-saving work,” according to analysts who monitor non-profits.

The Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation claims 88 percent of the money it raises goes to actual charity work, but experts who have looked at the books put the number at about 10 percent. The rest, they say, goes mostly to salaries, benefits, travel and fund-raising.

“That claim is demonstrably false, and it is false not according to some partisan spin on the numbers, but because the organization’s own tax filings contradict the claim,” said Sean Davis, co-founder of The Federalist, a conservative online magazine.

    This family does not know what the truth is anymore…..what ever they say is the truth……This is not the type of person I want or America needs as President……. She has so many scandals going at present and when the investigations begin it will be hard for her to keep the lies straight. However there may not be any investigations due to the new Attorney General…….
