The Clinton Foundation is a giant vampire squid with its filaments wrapped around the world and its blood funnel jamming relentlessly into anything that smells like money. That’s OK, people say, it’s a charity. They might be right on paper, but make no mistake – the main beneficiaries of the Clinton Foundation are the Clintons.
What percentage of Clinton Foundation money goes to real and actual charities? If you define “actual charities not controlled by the Clintons” as “programmatic grants,” then it appears the number is 15%.
The Clinton Foundation argues the figure is much higher. They claim they hire their own staff to carry out humanitarian work, thus money that appears to be staying in the Foundation is actually being spent on charitable acts.
