This is the game and we are all pawns. They move us across the game board and we don’t even realize it because they have successfully distracted us with television, scandals, political bickering, race baiting, etcetera. Meanwhile, they are relaxing in the bacon wrapped shrimp club while you work, stress, raise children, pay bills. You have no idea of my skin color may be or what side of the aisle I lean, but you do know that we are more alike each other than we are any of them.
Multiple donors to Clinton Foundation met with her while at State Department
More than half of the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was serving as secretary of state gave money to the Clinton Foundation, either personally or through or companies or groups, according to a review of State Department calendars released to the Associated Press.
At least 85 of the 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs, according to the documents obtained by the AP.
The 85 donors contributed as much as $156 million combined, and at least 40 donated more than $100,000 each while 20 gave more than $1 million.
Republican Vice Presidential candidate Mike Pence reacted Tuesday to the AP report while campaigning in Pennsylvania, saying it was not a “laughing matter.”
“Hillary was on Jimmy Kimmel last night, joked about it, said her emails were boring. Hillary Clinton this is not laughing matter, nobody is above the law,” Pence said. “American people are sick and tired of pay to play.”
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus called for a special prosecutor to look into pay for play allegations in reaction to the AP report.
Many donors to Clinton Foundation met with her at State
WASHINGTON (AP) — More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money — either personally or through companies or groups — to the Clinton Foundation. It’s an extraordinary proportion indicating her possible ethics challenges if elected president.
At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs, according to a review of State Department calendars released so far to The Associated Press. Combined, the 85 donors contributed as much as $156 million. At least 40 donated more than $100,000 each, and 20 gave more than $1 million.
