Is it of any surprise to anyone at all that the Clinton foundation likes money so much that they are happy to keep hold of Harvey Weinstein's money…But Wait! Isn't the foundation supposed to be giving money away? What is the point of a Foundation that does not actually spend, use, or distribute the donations it gets in?
Not so with the Clinton Foundation. Apparently, they have amassed such a huge fortune, that is begging the question…what are they going to do with it?
Spokesman Craig Minassian said:
“Suggesting @ClintonFdn return funds from our 330,000+ donors ignores the fact that donations have been used to help people across the world,”
Yet he stops short of saying that they have spent the money.
Hillary Clinton has made all the right noises regarding Weinstein, yet makes special notice of money collected:
“What other people are saying, what my former colleagues are saying, is they're going to donate it to charity, and of course I will do that,” she said on CNN. “I give 10% of my income to charity every year, this will be part of that. There's no – there's no doubt about it.”
The Clinton Foundation is mired in such controversy, that it is easy to forget that many of these so-called Foundations are in fact nothing but clearing houses for pet projects, accepting bribes, and basically being used to further the owner's career.
It is just a shame that innocent people are fooled into thinking that their money will go to help real people.
