Non-profit leaves much room for speculation: tellusatoday

 Bill Clinton vowing to ban foreign and corporate donations to the Clinton Foundation should Hillary be elected is like calling the fire department after your house has burned down. Perception in politics counts — a lot. If the Clinton Foundation isn’t mothballed should Clinton be elected president, the pay-to-play allegations will remain fishy and continue to stink — along with supporting the notion that the U.S. government has morphed into an oligarchy. Whereby this country is now ruled by the rich, powerful and well-connected.

The Clinton Foundation announced that if Hillary Clinton is elected president, it will no longer accept foreign and corporate donations after Republicans charge that she gave its donors preferential treatment and access as secretary of State. Facebook comments are edited for clarity and grammar:

What difference does it make now? The Clintons have raked in millions from foreign donations. Hillary Clinton is bought and paid for, and she accuses Donald Trump. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

The Clinton Foundation has done great work worldwide. This “investigation” is just the latest in the Republican smear campaign. Big donors to U.S. politicians always get face-to-face meetings. That doesn’t imply favors are granted. Trump insists that his donation to the Clinton Foundation did not get him anything. Americans should be smart enough to see through this last-ditch effort to distract us from how awful Trump is.
