Hillary Clinton Admits White House Policies Will Be Sold To The Highest Bidder If She’s Elected

“The fact Hillary Clinton believes it is appropriate for her husband to remain on the board of the Clinton Foundation if she is elected is proof that she operates in a permanent ethical blind spot and lacks the judgment to be president. This would present an unacceptable and unprecedented conflict of interest which would compromise her presidency beyond repair. That’s why the country’s leading newspapers, ethicists, and even top Democrats are calling on the Clintons to separate from the Clinton Foundation or to even shut it down. Given the repeated examples of Clinton Foundation donors and officials receiving access and favors from Hillary Clinton’s State Department, what she is proposing is to essentially plant a giant ‘for sale’ sign on the White House lawn.” – Jason Miller, Senior Communication Advisor

Today Clinton Told ABC News Bill Clinton Would Not Step Down From The Clinton Foundation If She Is Elected President. “Hillary Clinton told ABC News’ David Muir today that her husband, former President Bill Clinton, should not have to step down from his position at the Clinton Foundation. ‘I don’t think there are conflicts of interest,’ the Democratic presidential nominee said in a joint interview today with running mate Sen.

Major Editorial Boards Have Called For Bill, Hillary And Chelsea Clinton To Leave The Clinton Foundation:

The New York Times’ Editorial Board Said Bill, Hillary And Chelsea Clinton Should “End Their Operational Involvement In The Foundation And Its Affiliates For The Duration Of Her Presidency.” “A wiser course would be to ban contributions from foreign and corporate entities now. If Mrs. Clinton wins, Bill and Chelsea Clinton should both end their operational involvement in the foundation and its affiliates for the duration of her presidency, relinquishing any control over spending, hiring and board appointments.” (Editorial, “Cutting Ties To The Clinton Foundation,” The New York Times, 8/30/16)

The Boston Globe’s Editorial Board Called On The Clinton Foundation To Be Shut Down.” “Although the charity founded by former President Bill Clinton has done admirable work over the last 15 years, the Clinton Foundation is also clearly a liability for Hillary Clinton as she seeks the presidency. The once-and-maybe-future first family will have plenty to keep them busy next year if Hillary Clinton defeats Donald Trump in November. The foundation should remove a political — and actual — distraction and stop accepting funding. If Clinton is elected, the foundation should be shut down.” (Editorial, “Clinton Foundation Should Stop Accepting Funds,” Boston Globe, 8/16/16)

USA Today Editorial Headline: “Mothball The Clinton Foundation” (USA Today, 8/23/16)

The Washington Post Editorial Board Called On The Clinton Foundation To End All Ties To The Clintons Should Hillary Clinton Get Elected President. “Should Ms. Clinton win, all of that work and all of the foundation’s assets should be spun off to an organization with no ties to the first family.” (Editorial, “The Latest Clinton Emails Show What An Ethics Agreement Shouldn’t Look Like,” The Washington Post, 8/23/16)

The Los Angeles Times’ Editorial Board Called On Bill, Hillary And Chelsea To End Their Ties To The Clinton Foundation. “We would propose a differently solution: that the foundation continue but that the Clinton family sever its connection to it so long as Hillary Clinton is in the White House. That means not only Bill and Hillary Clinton but also Chelsea Clinton, who now serves as the foundation’s vice chair.” (Editorial, “It’s Time To Take The ‘Clinton’ Out Of The Clinton Foundation,” Los Angeles Times, 8/25/16)

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune Editorial Board Called On The Clintons To Shut Down The Clinton Foundation. “There is only one way to mitigate the damage at this point. As painful as it would be, the Clintons must shut down what until recently was known as the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. The half-measures being proposed don’t go far enough and leave the issue as one that will plague her until the last days of this election and perhaps beyond.” (Editorial, “It’s Past Time To Shut Down The Clinton Foundation,” Minneapolis Star-Tribune, 8/26/16)
