Chinagate and the Clintons

Laying the foundation for the Clinton Foundation.

When Senator Tim Kaine on Tuesday denied that there was any corruption at the Clinton Foundation, I couldn’t believe it. That was unquestionably one of the most dishonest things I ever seen in a presidential debate. Even Bill Clinton had promised that, if Hillary got elected, there would be no more foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation.

Another reason I don’t believe Kaine is that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) illegally received foreign donations from China when Bill Clinton was president. This scandal was called Chinagate.

For people who think I am being unfair, I will only use links to liberal sources such as the New York Times and the Washington Post to prove my points.

Chinagate, more than any other scandal, should have led to the impeachment, and removal, of Bill Clinton from office. At least six individuals were believed to have been used by the Chinese to influence the 1996 elections. Despite the fact that the illegal donations were returned, Janet Reno was criticized for never appointing an independent prosecutor for the Chinagate scandal.

    Attorney generals in the States are more corrupt than anybody.

      They know to whom they owe their jobs.

  • What difference should it make whether or not Hillary is elected President or not? The fact is the Clintons shouldn’t have been receiving foreign donations for their Foundation, whether or not they are in the Presidency, or were simply Senators, etc. Holding any position in the U.S. Government and receiving such donations should be anathema, especially if the source of the donations is from another Government.

    And even if you aren’t in Government and there’s no conflict of interest on that level, how can any organization claiming to be an “NGO” (Non-Governmental Organization) receive money from any Government or political Party?

    How odd that during the 1st Debate with Trump we saw Hillary with a razor sharp memory to bash Trump going back to 1973…..YET during the Benghazi and Email Hearings her memory went blank only during her 4 years as the Sec. Of State .
    Hillary said she was named after Edmund Hillary when he scaled Everest in 1953 , buy she was born in 1947 . She praised her Father but in the past she played the victim of an abuse and violent Father that was a drunk .
