SiriusXM host Alex Marlow had Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute and author of Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich, give the unsurprising truth about the Clinton Foundation and its “donations” to charities. According to Breitbart News, about 6% of attained funds actually go to charity.
With new updates about the hundreds of Clinton Foundation donors rewarded with seats on advisory boards by Hillary Clinton during her tenure as Secretary of State, Schweizer says “it continues to confirm what people know, which is, whatever the Clintons ostensibly seem to get involved in, that there is always money that flows to them.”
“A lot of people don’t realize that the Clintons, a couple of years ago, started a campaign to build an endowment for the Clinton Foundation, which I think is somewhere on the order of $350 million,” Schweizer said to Marlow. “So even if they stopped raising money tomorrow, they still have an endowment that will allow the Foundation, in some form, to continue to operate. This is the problem. It is transactional. Everything they do is transactional.”
Schweizer also revealed that the organization Charity Navigator has ceased auditing or verifying the Clinton Foundation and its practices. “They had an asterisk that basically said we’re not going to evaluate the Clinton Foundation because of its, quote, ‘unique business model,’ whatever that means,” Schweizer said. “It’s kind of like Mafia-like tactics in the world of charity and philanthropy. It’s really quite shocking.”
It’s also been reported that while Hillary and Bill Clinton have vowed to remove themselves from the Foundation operations if she is elected president, their daughter Chelsea will be taking over the operations. In fact, Schweizer notes that Chelsea may have political ambitions of her own down the line.
