Hillary Clinton says she is giving the Democratic donations Harvey Weinstein gave her to charity. Clinton, who remained silent for six days after the Weinstein scandal broke, told CNN Wednesday ´There´s no one to give it back to. What other people are saying, what my former colleagues are saying, is that they´re going to donate it to charity, and of course I will do that.´ Clinton added ´I give 10 per cent of my income to charity every year, this will be part of that. There´s no doubt about it.´ einstein raised and donated hundreds of thousands of dollars for Clinton, going back
FTA: "Clinton added ´I give 10 per cent of my income to charity every year, this will be part of that " So she is keeping it and using it as part of her 10% which means she is personally giving less than 10%. She would have to give it over and above her normal 10% for it to be honest. But then, honesty was never her strong suit, was it?
I give 10 per cent of my income[taxable income? gross income?] to charity [Clinton Foundation?] every year, this [legally ambigous] will be part of that [legally ambigous]. There´s no doubt about it [legally ambigous].
Basically she has stated that she gives 10% of something to someone every year.
what is definition of "Democratic donation". Unlikely that includes Clinton Foundation, PACS, maybe even her own personal campaign. Maybe only donations to the Democratic National Party..hard to know what it refers to.
Remember these are the people that recently refilled years of Clinton Foundation Tax returns.
She´s laughing at all the rubes that think a single penny she controls that came from Weinstein, will every be relenquished.
When The Beast donates money it´s just being laundered. Notice Harvey never inappropriate relationshiped The Vile Witch. Thank goodness I´ve never paid money to watch anything Weinstein was involved in.
The L-Dotters are on to the HildeBeast. It speaks to the corruption of the ´news media´ that so many people are not.
The Beast MAY take a few bucks and ´donate to charity´- the Clinton Crime Foundation (taking the money from one pocket and putting it in the other.... most likely scenario) or there is a slight chance she may give a few nickels to PP, AKA ´The Black Baby Killers´.
My feeling is that, as is the usual case when her lips are moving, that she is simply lying, and that she is KEEPING THE CA$H.
A Clinton actually giving up some cash that´s already stuffed into their pockets???? That´s a laugh that only their sycophants and the Useless Media would pretend to believe. I say ´´pretend´´ because even those morons KNOW the Clintons are crooks she´s lying again.
Ah, so Weinstein´s Clinton campaign contributions are unspent? So why is Hillary allowed to hang on to campaign donations? We know she must have it in an interest bearing account. Campaign funds are not for personal enrichment, by law.
Who´s she kidding? They are going to be in serious financial squeeze now that the clinton influence is history. The foundation is toast. No country will donate a penny, since she won´t be in the WH. These people are despicable. For the first time in their lives, they are going to find out what it means to work for their money. And writing soul searching books ain´t gonna do it.
Translation: "I claim to give 10% of my income to charity every year. That fictitious amount should cover any donations from Harvey Weinstein which I actually spent long ago during my failed presidential campaign."
I don´t get the logic that this poisoned money should go to another charity. It is still poisoned money. Give it back to the giver. I know that sounds strange but passing ill gotten money along just ingratiates another in the line of passing bad money. Send the money back to the source and be done with it.
The world´s largest earthquake drill will take place today, in which 10.2 million people in California will practice what to do if a massive quake hits. The ´Great Shakeout´ is an annual drill that happens in California, but this year´s event will be the biggest yet. It comes after scenario experts predicted that a magnitude-7 earthquake is ´inevitable´ and likely to happen in Southern California in the next several decades. The Great Shakeout will happen at 10:19 PST (18:19 BST/13:19 EST), during which time 20 million people – 10.2 million of which will be in California – will practice what to do
The military families argument has taken a bizarre turn after the White House said Donald Trump´s check to a slain US solider´s family ´has been sent´ after the man´s father spoke out saying the $25,000 offer never materialized. Chris Baldridge told the Washington Post that he received a phone call from Trump back in June shortly after his 22-year-old son Dillon was one of three soldiers killed in Afghanistan by a police officer. During the 15-minute phone call, Baldridge said Trump had offered his grieving family $25,000 and promised to set up an online fundraising page but the money never arrived. Baldridge said
SEOUL - Former U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday that “cavalier” threats to start war on the Korean peninsula were “dangerous and short-sighted”, urging the United States to get all parties to the negotiating table. Clinton also called on China to take a “more outfront role” in enforcing sanctions against North Korea aimed at curbing its missile and nuclear development. “There is no need for us to be bellicose and aggressive (over North Korea),” Clinton told the World Knowledge Forum in the South Korean capital of Seoul, stressing the need for more pressure on North Korea and diplomacy to
Just one hospital in England has hit its targets for cancer, operations and accident and emergency over the past year, it was claimed today. Growing demand is leaving the NHS struggling to serve patients, with Luton and Dunstable NHS Trust in Bedfordshire the only service to have achieved its goals. England, Wales and Northern Ireland have not hit any of their three targets for 18 months, while Scotland has only had success with its A&E goal in the last year. Hospital staff told the BBC, which conducted the research, of their concerns over shortages of doctors and nurses, a lack of money
Senator John McCain (R- Arizona) announced on Tuesday he will back the Senate´s budget resolution this week to help with tax cuts. While it´s still unclear if the bill has enough votes to pass, the backing is crucial as the Republican-controlled Senate needs the proposal to pass to keep alive its hopes of enacting sharp reductions in tax rates later this year. Republicans earned another victory in the return of Senator Thad Cochran (R -Mississippi) who went back to Capitol Hill after being out sick for weeks with urological problems. If passed in both the House and the Senate, the budget resolution would
If all men are rotten – then what? Only a few weeks ago all men were heroes. The hurricanes in Texas and Florida brought out the best in us, according to a well-known feminist whose name slips my mind, but anyway, thank you for the compliment. Look who comes to the rescue, she said. Look at the people who risk their lives to serve as first responders – nearly all of them MEN. Can I get me a Halleluiah? Not so fast. A few weeks ago, yes, but feels more like a million years ago because all of a sudden, thanks to Harvey
The FBI was investigating a plot involving Russian kickbacks and bribes before the Obama administration gave a green light to a Moscow-controlled company gaining control of U.S. uranium production, it was reported Tuesday. The deal, which won agency approval in 2010, allowed Rosatom, the Russian atomic energy agency, gain control of U.S. uranium stockpiles. The State Department, then run by Hillary Clinton, and a special committee were required to sign off on the deal, since it led to Russia gaining control of one-fifth of U.S. uranium supplies and production. As far back as 2009, the FBI was probing bribes in the Russian
BILL CLINTON has come under fire after mocking Brexit and saying Leave voters had no idea what they were voting for. The former president hit out at those who support the UK’s departure from the European Union, saying it was ridiculous to think that differences were more important that what people have in common. And he claimed some Brexit voters may only now be realising the impact of their decision. Speaking at Dublin University today as he accepted an honorary doctorate, Mr Clinton even went so far as to mimick a Brexit voter as he warned inequality and division was taking over
An "unusual" reddish sky and red-looking sun have been reported across many parts of England. The phenomenon was initially seen in the west of England and Wales before spreading to other areas. BBC weather presenter Simon King said it was due to the remnants of Hurricane Ophelia dragging in tropical air and dust from the Sahara. He added that debris from forest fires in Portugal and Spain was also playing a part. The dust has caused shorter wavelength blue light to be scattered, making it appear red. BBC Weather Watchers: Why has the sky turned red? He said: "Ophelia originated in the Azores where
HURRICANE Ophelia is THREE HOURS away from smashing the UK in what is now feared to be the worst storm for 60 years sparking warnings to take “immediate action”. and UK More than 1,000 Army troops are on standby with 100mph gales set to lash swathes of the country through the next 48 hours. Government forecasters have issued a “danger to life” alert ramping up severe weather warnings from yellow to the more severe amber. The Met Office has in the past hour extended this alert from Ireland into a wider part of western and northern Britain while bringing the danger time forward
Authorities have greenlighted an expedition in a German cave complex to search for £200million worth of treasure from Russia´s Amber room, which was looted by Nazis during World War II. A trio of aging sleuths - homeopath Leonhard Blume, 73, scientist Günter Eckardt, 67, and georadar specialist Peter Lohr, 71 - are convinced the missing Amber Room of the Russian Tsars lies in the Prince´s Cave in the Hartenstein hills near Dresden. Third Reich scientists used the cave complex during the war - but all records of what went on there have mysteriously vanished from local archives. Lohr used radar imaging to detect
An oil rig exploded in Lake Pontchartrain on Sunday evening (Oct. 15) near St. Charles Parish and north Kenner, according to Kenner Police Department spokesman Sgt. Brian McGregor. Seven people were injured in the explosion, according to Kenner Deputy Chief Administrative Officer Kriss Fortunato, and authorities believe an eighth person is still missing. Search and rescue operations were ongoing Sunday at about 10:15 p.m. Rescue boats are being sent from the Kenner Boat Launch at the end of Williams Boulevard, McGregor said, and authorities asked that residents avoid the area as much as possible. Five of those injured were taken to the
Jane Fonda made it clear she is not proud of America. During a recent interview with the BBC, Fonda was asked, "Are you proud of America today?" The actress was very quick to reply with a hard "no." "But, I’m proud of the resistance," she elaborated. "I’m proud of the people who are turning out in unprecedented numbers and continue over and over and over again to protest what Trump is doing. I’m very proud of them, that core." During the same interview, the 79-year-old was asked if she had a "sense of regret" for her visit to North Vietnam in 1972. The
Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough said President Donald Trump was the “antithesis” of the teachings of Jesus Christ. Scarborough said, “You look in Matthew, and go through the Beatitudes. Every single Beatitude. You go through Jesus’s teaching. What he says he wants people to be. Donald Trump is the antithesis of just about every single thing that Jesus Christ said on the Sermon on the Mount. Go read it.” He added, “None of us are perfect, but he goes out of his way it seems to thumb his nose at all conventions. Including the basics of
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says players should stand for the national anthem, speaking out amid the furor over some players´ protests before games. "We believe everyone should stand for the national anthem. That´s an important part of our policy," Goodell said in a press conference Wednesday in New York. But Goodell said he would not commit to making a rule stating players must stand for the anthem. "Our players will state to you publicly they are not doing this in any way to be disrespectful to the flag," Goodell said. He said the league is "not looking to get into politics, but what
As National Football League owners and players’ union representatives meet in New York today and tomorrow to discuss the players’ recent demonstrations — the kneeling, linking arms or raising fists during the national anthem — they should know how the law views these protests. This will not only tell them what the league lawfully can do; it also will reveal something about American values. There has been some confusion about the law and the anthem protests. Because the First Amendment generally treats government and corporate power differently, allowing a business to impose on its workers what the government
Clinton Scandals: For well over a year now, the progressive left in the Democratic Party have tried hard to sell the idea that, a) Russia meddled in our election, and, b) that it was to the detriment of Hillary Clinton. After nearly a year and a half of investigating, neither appears true. What is true, and now documented, is that Hillary Clinton and her family foundation both benefited handsomely from Russian corruption. Citing federal officials and government documents, The Hill details the Russians´ nuclear-industry corruption here in the U.S., citing extensive evidence that "Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery,
Someone within the Obama administration’s intelligence apparatus made requests to unmask the identity of Americans named in intelligence reports on behalf of Samantha Power, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. That’s what Power told the House Intelligence Committee last week during a closed-door interview. South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy revealed in an interview on Fox News on Tuesday that Power was “emphatic” on the point that someone else in the Obama administration made the unmasking requests that have been attributed to her. Fox News recently reported that Power made approximately 260 unmasking requests — a rate of one per business day
Sen. John McCain exploded on Fox News’ Peter Doocy on Wednesday for asking him if he would oppose everything that President Trump asks him to do. Doocy asked Sen. McCain if his relationship with the president is “so frayed” that McCain would “not support anything that he comes to you and asks for?” McCain snapped, “Why would you say something that stupid? Why would you ask something that dumb?” “My job as a United States senator — you mean I am somehow going to behave in a way that I’m going to block everything because of some personal disagreement?” McCain said incredulously.
Meghan McCain gave an interview on Tuesday where she responded to President Trump‘s warning towards her father after his speech against “spurious nationalism.” In a Good Morning America interview with George Stephanopoulos, McCain noted that Trump and her father clearly have different ideas about the best direction of the country. She went on to declare that she’s “exhausted” with the GOP’s infighting and the attacks against her dad after all the challenges he has already faced. “I don’t know if you guys have heard but my father is fighting glioblastoma right now and there’s nothing that could possibly happen or
The much-publicized Tuesday meeting between NFL officials, team owners, NFLPA officials and several players lasted about three hours. While there was undoubtedly a lot discussed in that time, it sounds as though there has not been a resolution on a rule change to require that players stand for the national anthem before games. A statement released jointly by the NFL and NFLPA called it a “productive meeting,” and that there will be another session in the future: Today owners and players had a productive meeting focused on how we can work together to promote positive social change and address inequality
Damning new evidence appears to show that Hillary Clinton used her office as Secretary of State to confer benefits to Russia in exchange for millions of dollars in donations to her foundation and cash to her husband. But there’s more. It seems it was all covered up for years by the same three people who are now involved in the investigation of President Donald Trump over so-called Russian “collusion.” (Snip) What’s more, Holder was a member of the “Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States” which approved the uranium sale to the Russians in 2010.
Former President George W. Bush offered an unmistakable denunciation of Trumpism Thursday without mentioning the president by name, urging citizens to oppose threats to American democracy. “Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication,” Bush warned in remarks at the Bush Institute’s Spirit of Liberty event in New York. By chance, Bush was standing in the same spot at the Time Warner Center where former President Barack Obama made a similar plea for democracy and American leadership in late September, shortly after President Donald Trump had finished a belligerent, isolationist speech to the United Nations
President Trump lashed out on Twitter against the Florida congresswoman who said he told a soldier’s widow that her husband “must’ve known what he signed up for,’ saying she “fabricated” the account. “Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). Sad!” Trump wrote on the social messaging site on Tuesday. Rep. Frederica Wilson, a Democrat, said she was riding in the car with Myeshia Johnson, the widow of Army Sgt. La David T. Johnson, who was killed in Niger along with three other comrades, when she got
