    Just 5.7 percent of the Clinton Foundation’s massive 2014 budget actually went to charitable grants, according to the tax-exempt organization’s IRS filings. The rest went to salaries and employee benefits, fundraising and “other expenses.”....

    ............Despite taking in an additional $30 million in 2014, the Clinton Foundation spent 40 percent less on charitable grants in 2014 than in 2013. Even as it slashed charitable spending, the foundation increased the amount spent on salaries, employee benefits and compensation by $5 million in 2014. The foundation also spent $5 million more “other expenses” in 2014.

    Kind of a joke as a charity, huh?

    Sounds more like a personal enrichment tax dodge.

    Isn't the Daily Caller part of the Alt - Right?

    While 100% of the Trump Foundations charitable grants were taken from other foundations, given to his foundation, and regifted. Gotta love the quasi-money laundering and taking credit for somebody else's giving.

    I wasn't going to weigh in on this conversation, and this will be slightly off topic, it I want to thank you for using "Attorneys General" properly. It's one of my pet peeves when someone uses plurals improperly; such as Mothers in Law, Sergeants Major, etc. People usually try to make the second word plural rather than the first.

    Ok, my mini-rant is done. Back to our regularly scheduled disagreements:

    You know Sapper, I know we often disagree, but I think you said once that we probably agree more than we disagree. I think we're a lot a like lol. :pI hate it when people use plurals improperly. It's right up there for me with people saying "I seen" instead of "I saw".:Mad

    Oh, look. The Clinton Foundation has released its tax records. Hillary Clinton has released her personal taxes.

    Where are the Trump Foundation tax records?
    Where are Donald Trump's personal tax records?

    Oh, that's right, he hasn't released them. At least with Hillary we can see her lousy stewardship of charitable giving.
