Want To Know What A Hillary Presidency Would Look Like, Just Look At Bill’s Bankrupt Foundation

Power Ccouple Bill and Hillary Clinton

Do you think maybe if you could possibly imagine the horror of a Hillary Clinton Presidency in 2016, that it would be a good idea to see how her husband Bill Clinton ran his foundation? That may be pretty instructive of how the Clintons operate in the years since Bill's presidency. In 2007 and 2008 the foundation had a $40 million deficit and in 2012 despite generating $214 million in revenue, Bill's foundation ran a deficit over $8 million.

But if you don't think Hillary is connected to the foundation and would say that's all Bill's doing, Hillary Clinton is making plans to relocate her offices to the Foundation’s Manhattan headquarters in the next few weeks and former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Clinton planned to use the Foundation as a “launching pad into 2016.”

But it goes beyond Bill's foundation just not having any money, there are serious conflicts of interest, plus cronyism and mismanagement galore, enough create another Clinton White House rife with scandal. But hey, isn't that the way Washington works anyway.

Let's just continue things exactly the way they are.

Read more about the disastrous Clinton Foundation below from Breitbart:

In the wake of last week’s much-discussed New York Times investigative report detailing cronyism and mismanagement inside the Clinton Foundation, former president Bill Clinton issued an open letter in an attempt to stem the public relations backlash. Clinton’s letter challenged a couple of the Times’ assertions that his nonprofit had run deficits.

Curiously, Clinton’s letter left unchallenged the Times’ more troubling reporting–based on over two dozen interviews with Clinton Foundation insiders–that the nonprofit is rife with cronyism and conflicts of interest that leverage access and power to benefit for-profit ventures like Teneo, a consultancy co-founded by Bill Clinton’s “surrogate son” and former Clinton Foundation aide Douglas Band. Teneo, whose earliest clients included the now-defunct MF Global headed up by Obama bundler Jon Corzine, has also hired Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin, wife of mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner.

That placed Media Matters in the awkward position of defending Hillary and Bill Clinton from the liberal New York Times. Media Matters blogger Emily Arrowood filed a blog post chastising the New York Times for its “misleading Times story, which apparently failed to perform due diligence in reporting on the accounting requirements for foundations.”
Oddly, Arrowood went on to scold conservative media outlets for having the temerity to cite the New York Times reportage.

“Predictably, conservative media did not wait to learn these facts surrounding the Clinton Foundation, preferring to cite the initial Times story to decry imaginary scandals and lob both new and old attacks at Hillary Clinton,” wrote Arrowood. She blasted Fox News host Eric Bolling, The Blaze, The London Telegraph (sic), former New York Times Magazine editor-in-chief Ed Klein, and The Atlantic as being part of a “right-wing noise machine” that was “scrambling to find a new Hillary scandal.”

Like Bill Clinton’s letter, however, Arrowood’s blog post sidestepped the Times’ more serious charges of cronyism and conflicts of interest and ducked altogether the Breitbart News report last week featured on Drudge Report that chronicled additional Clinton Foundation conflicts of interest not included in the Times’ original report. As Breitbart News reported, by 2008, the Clinton Foundation raised at least $46 million from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Brunei, Oman, and other foreign governments with whom Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would later negotiate. In her role as a New York Senator, Hillary Clinton also reportedly helped New York developer Robert Congel win millions of dollars in federal assistance after Congel donated $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation.
