The Clinton Foundation: Hopelessly Corrupt Or Just A Lousy Charity? | Stock News & Stock Market Analysis - IBD:
As the unseemly ties between the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton's State Department become more glaring and disturbing, the rhetoric from the Democratic side is getting more desperate.
Now Clinton hatchet man James Carville says critics of the foundation are going to hell.
Over the past two weeks, it has become painfully obvious to anyone but the most hard-core Clinton loyalist that the Clinton Foundation was little more than an influence-peddling operation designed to exchange cash for favors from Bill and Hillary Clinton.
We noted in this space yesterday that a fresh batch of emails showed how the foundation intervened to get a meeting arranged between Clinton and Crown Prince of Bahrain after attempts to work through normal channels failed.
The prince's country was a major foundation donor.
Now there are reports that a senior foundation executive left 148 phone messages for Clinton's top aide at State from 2010 to 2012 -- more than any other caller.
The Associated Press reports that "more than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money -- either personally or through companies or groups -- to the Clinton Foundation."
This comes on top of a batch of emails released two weeks ago by Judicial Watch that showed foundation executives pushing the State Department for favors for big-time donors.
It also follows news that the FBI has multiple ongoing public corruption investigations into the Clinton Foundation..."
