According to this, Hillary Clinton’s newly released tax returns show that she and Bill donated $1,042,000 to charity. But $1 million of that went to their very own non-profit Clinton Foundation (aka Hillary’s Campaign Slush Fund) –
Hillary Clinton and her husband Bill deducted $1,042,000 in charitable contributions last year — $1 million of which went to their own family non-profit, the Clinton Foundation. Clinton released her tax forms on Friday in a move that is seen as a way to pressure Donald Trump to release his taxes. The GOP nominee has refused to release the records, saying that he is under a routine audit. The documents show that the power couple earned $10,745,378 last year, mostly on income earned from giving public speeches.
Of that, they gave just over a million to charity. But the contributions can hardly be seen as altruistic, since the money flowed back to an entity they control.
Um, Hillz… I don’t think you can write off contributions to your personal slush fund as “charity.” But whatever – you’re Hillary Clinton. The rules don’t apply to you.
As for the other $42,000? That went to Desert Classic Charities, which is an organization that’s features Doug Band on their board of directors through 2014 (he later became a senior staff member of the Clinton Foundation). Band, if you recall, was implicated in the Clinton Foundation scandal thanks to a series of emails that are currently fueling the FBI’s investigation of corruption in the Clinton Foundation.
Yep. The Clintons are SOOOOO charitable. To themselves.
