It’s been announced that Chelsea Clinton will stay on the board of the Clinton Foundation if her mother is elected President.
How is this going to work? People are going to continue to ask questions about the Foundation, and legitimately so. It seems Hillary Clinton is happy to hand to Republicans in Congress her first-term kryptonite.
Mrs. Clinton may end up accomplishing little as President if everybody continues to be preoccupied with who’s the latest donor to the Clinton Foundation, and how much phone or face time they got with the President or her staff before or after making their donation. The Associated Press has already found that, of 154 people with private interests who met or phoned Clinton as Secretary of State, more than half donated to Clinton charities. These were people whose meetings with Clinton were marked on the State Dept calendar obtained by the AP.
Mrs. Clinton, just close these foundations, charities, initiatives down. Enough is enough. Once your term as President expires, you should be able to create new charities, and to build a Presidential Library with money raised through speeches given to corporations, wealthy individuals, and foreign governments – the same thing ex-Presidents have done in the past.
