Campaign Finance: Some of the $500 million in secrets behind the Clinton Foundation and its ties to Hillary's presidential campaign are now revealed. The charity seems to be a clearing house for buying political favors.
The hundreds of thousands of dollars Hillary took in campaign contributions from Washington lobbyists provoked a chorus of boos when she appeared at the Daily Kos' summer gathering of liberal bloggers in Chicago.
But those direct donations, under the watchful eye of the Federal Election Commission, are mere chicken feed. The now over $500-million-rich Clinton Foundation is where the real action is.
The New York Times, which has discovered the identity of 97 donors who together gave or pledged $69 million early on, reports some of the million-dollar donors sought changes in policies and two of them were under Justice Department probes.
With the presidential election approaching, Clinton Foundation donations skyrocketed last year to $135 million, 70% more than the year before, with two-thirds of the booty from only 11 donors.
So much for Bill and Hil's populist image.
The former president steadfastly refused to reveal the donors' identities including one super-rich donor giving $31.3 million.
We can certainly now see why. The $31-million-dollar man turned out to be Canadian mining mogul and founder of Lionsgate Entertainment (distributor of Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11") Frank Giustra, who plans to give another $100 million, plus half his future earnings.

What a great coinage, Tammanay Hil. Wow, that was a stroke of genious. I like it.
Is this story getting legs???
I hope this story carries....the media is so afraid of the Clintlers.
And very crooked how they are raising Shrill’s money thru backdoor contributions to the Clinton’s non-prof
Not yet, I’m afraid.
Rush might,I doubt if Bill will.
“the media is so afraid of the Clintlers.”
If and when she collapses in the election, the exposure of Clinton Corruption is going to come out, fast and furious...
After everything that’s been done to get them elected, thier “Friends” will be demanding retribution for thier failures..
I don’t think BOR will cover it. This past week he equated all the right wing Hillary haters with the the Lefties who have BDS (Bush Derangement Syndrome).
Hillary, "It depends on what your definition of campaign contribution is."
Where is the Barrett Report?
I wonder how these "plans" will change if the Commodities Scam Queen tanks in the Primaries, and no one knocks off Obama before the election.
Democrats at all levels of government are expert at gaming the system to their own benefit. From town and county government right on up. The Democrat Party is the new “party of the rich.”
So now we have a Canadian Marxist backing the American Marxist, Clinton. This disgusting woman is our version of Putin, corrupt and rolling in millions, lets not forget Soros and his billions to say nothing about the ChiComs. The White House is for sale under these two, money isn’t their most important goal, it is power.
