I'm surprised given recent developments in exposing the behind the scenes Clinton corruption machine that anyone could support Clinton for POTUS...

 

Bottom line here is that many millions of dollars flowed to the Clintons by people supporting this uranium deal... all while Clinton was at State... and oh by the way... this deal had to be approved by the State Dept... 

 

The New York Times’s examination of the Uranium One deal is based on dozens of interviews, as well as a review of public records and securities filings in Canada, Russia and the United States. Some of the connections between Uranium One and the Clinton Foundation were unearthed by Peter Schweizer, a former fellow at the right-leaning Hoover Institution and author of the forthcoming book “Clinton Cash.” Mr. Schweizer provided a preview of material in the book to The Times, which scrutinized his information and built upon it with its own reporting.
 
Whether the donations played any role in the approval of the uranium deal is unknown. But the episode underscores the special ethical challenges presented by the Clinton Foundation, headed by a former president who relied heavily on foreign cash to accumulate $250 million in assets even as his wife helped steer American foreign policy as secretary of state, presiding over decisions with the potential to benefit the foundation’s donors.

Donations from foreign governments... errors in reporting... hmmnnn... and Reuters could find them... that means that it was intentional, I don't believe in errors at this level... 

 

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Hillary Clinton's family's charities are refiling at least five annual tax returns after a Reuters review found errors in how they reported donations from governments, and said they may audit other Clinton Foundation returns in case of other errors.
 
The foundation and its list of donors have been under intense scrutiny in recent weeks. Republican critics say the foundation makes Clinton, who is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, vulnerable to undue influence. Her campaign team calls these claims "absurd conspiracy theories."

This New York Times story is a blockbuster.  It makes it quite clear that the Clintons have used their foundation to line their own pockets. They are money-hungry and power-hungry people.  IMO, anyone who believes otherwise would have to be incredibly naive, or just willing to swallow any misconduct on their part, just to keep the presidency.  Sad, sad, sad.

Not only this... but it leaves the appearance that access and favors were purchased at the State Department... 

 

Since they admittedly falsified several years worth of tax returns... I'm not sure we'll ever know how much money the Clintons accepted and from whom...

Interesting article by Kim Strassel...

 

The Clinton Scandal Manual
Will the stock Clinton scandal response be enough to weather this storm?

 

Say this about Bill and Hillary Clinton: They are predictable. Some politicians dare to change, even to evolve, but not the former first couple. In these uncertain political times, Team Clinton’s lack of ethics—and its stock response when caught—is our one constant.
 
The details change, of course. In 1978 it was lucrative cattle futures; in 2014 it was lucrative speeches. In the 1990s it was missing Whitewater and Rose Law firm records; today it is missing emails. In 2000 it was cash for pardons; now it’s cash for Russian uranium mines. In Little Rock, it was Bill’s presidential campaign vehicle; in New York, it’s Hillary’s—and now known as the Clinton Foundation. Details.

More from the WSJ...

 

Quid Pro Clinton
Democrats who expect Bill and Hillary to change are delusional

 

Mrs. Clinton has been cruising to the Democratic Presidential nomination without serious competition, largely on the belief that Democratic voters have no other choice. Accept Hillary or get a Republican. The operating Clinton assumption is that the “progressives” who are normally outraged by pay-to-play politics, and who pretended that Halliburton ran the Pentagon because Dick Cheney was once CEO, will fall meekly into line as they always have.
 
Maybe they will, though the 2016 election risks of doing so are rising with each disclosure of Clinton sleaze. Maybe America’s oldest political party will decide that it isn’t helpless to defeat a couple of Arkansas-turned-New York panhandlers who want a free ride to another extended lease on the White House. If nothing else, the past few weeks make clear that voters who expect the Clinton method to change are deluding themselves.

So very corrupt... Clinton should end her campaign and go home... she won't... but she should... 

 

We won't get better people in office until we demand better... nobody should support a Clinton campaign given what we know about her...

Far too many people deny the facts in front of their face in favor of their political ideology... It's a huge problem... probably the greatest we face as a nation... We must start holding the ruling elites accountable...

For those with short memories... these people are proven thieves... a flashback to when the Clintons looted the White House... 

 

Clintons Return White House Furniture

 

After they were criticized for taking $190,000 worth of china, flatware, rugs, televisions, sofas and other gifts with them when they left, the Clintons announced last week that they would pay for $86,000 worth of gifts, or nearly half the amount.
 
Their latest decision to send back $28,000 in gifts brings to $114,000 the value of items the Clintons have either decided to pay for or return.

Just curious, have you watched any of the Netflix show "House of Cards"?

 

I'm pretty sure its modeled after the Clintons.

This is incorrect... this thread is dedicated to Clinton... both positive and negative points... they must all be considered if we are going to make an informed decision regarding who to vote for...

I encourage Clinton supporters to post facts about all of the accomplishments...

Snowman, I have to ask, why would you say that the facts recited by Quasar are absurd conspiracy theories?  What he stated were certifiable facts. 

- Fact: 22 of the 37 corporations that donated to the Clinton Family Foundation were nominated for a highly coveted state department award while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.  6 of the 8 winners did in fact donate to Clinton Family foundation.

- Fact: Hillary Clinton fabricated a lie about being named after Edmund Hillary, despite the fact that she was born BEFORE he climbed Mt. Everest.

- Fact: Hillary Clinton fabricated a lie about being shot at while on a trip to Bosnia in the 1990's

- Fact: Hillary Clinton's Rose Law firm billing records that had been requested by subpoena 2 years before, mysteriously turned up in a white house storage area on the 3rd floor.

- Fact: Millionaire Democrate fundraiser/fraud/racketeer/fugitive/FBI most wanted...Marc Rich secured a pardon from President Bill Clinton shortly after his ex-wife, Denise, cut a check for 450K to the Clinton Presidential Library foundation and 70K to Hillary Clinton's Senate campaign.

- Fact: She deleted more than 30K e-mails on her private server under congressional subpoena rather than submit them for independent/in camera review to see which e-mails might have been relevant.

- Fact: at the same time she was talking about the high cost of tuition and the middle class, she was giving speeches to colleges for well over $200,000...including a $300,000 sum she collected for a 30 minute speech at UCLA. 

 

This is just the tip of the iceberg.  Prominent democrats who worked in the Clinton administration like George Stephanapolous (sp??) and Didi Myers have publicly disclosed how hateful and cruel Hillary could be to staff. 

 

Her and bubba are Richard Nixon x 10.  I hope the democrats nominate...in addition to being a phony liberal grandee, she is as corrupt as they come.

Why waste the time to do critical thinking that may challenge set ideologues when one can play the "conspiracy theory"/"tin-foil hat" card? Once played, any further attempt at debate is an exercise in futility.

besides not seeing any facts that quasar posted, i didn't say that. i said the links that were posted in this thread, from the new york times, etc, have some pretty questionable information, much of it debunked way long time ago, and what many refer to as absurd conspiracy theories. the press has always had their own set of "clinton rules" regarding what they publish.

I'll give you that the Wall Street Journal leans right.  But Reuters and the NY Times do NOT lean right.

 

Could it be that even democrat journalists are not willing to put all their eggs in this one basket?  Especially a basket made up of so many skeletons?
