Bill Clinton's foundation reportedly has racked up more than $50 million in travel costs over the past decade, in the latest detail to emerge about the high-flying former president's operation.
The New York Post reports that, based on internal tax documents covering the period since 2003, the foundation logged a $4.2 million travel bill in 2011 alone (together, all the foundations Clinton runs spent $12.1 million on travel that year).

Travel slush fund comes to mind.
Are Sex Attendants considered a travel cost?
But my question is, why are we all of a sudden getting exposes on the Clinton's and their foundation? Fox, NY Times & Post? You think someone does not want Hillary running for queen er president?
All I know is that I’m looking forward to Monica Lewinsky moderating the next presidential debate.
Is it true that the Clinton Foundation has the highest % of Overhead?
I travel privately from to time and let me tell you; those trips over 4 hours, in particular, international are freaking expensive.
Go look up the rates from any charter and then match that with his entourage requirements.
How about the grifters giving an invoice for private jet rate travel (at about 5k/hr or so) to the foundation for reimbursement for “expenses”. Yeah, they made the trip - just on some sucker’s plane at no cost. wink wink.
I mean, if you were damn sure you wouldn’t be audited how many grifters wouldn’t do this?
This is called getting the dirt out early so in 2016 when she is really in our faces 24/7 she can call it “old news” and loudly cackle away.
Mouse knuckles compared to his hooker bill.
Hillary: “Damn it, Bill! How many times have I told you you can’t declare it a travel expense just because you tell a hooker you love flying united!”
It’s more than $5k per hour. I’m guessing he flies minimum an Embraer 600 or Falcon 900 would be minimum config for one plane and it wouldn’t surprise me with SS and entourage he might fly two jets or bump to a heavy commercial.
Then there would be the cost of arrangements on board, maybe a steward/ess from time to time, storage of vehicles and destination transportation.
It all gets rolled into one bill.
Kind of like going to the Four Seasons Beverly Hills, ordering room service, various transportation, storage, bar tab, dry cleaning, gift shop, items from hall kiosks, rental of private rooms, etc.
You get an itemized bill at the end but, it shows up on expenses as on line item.
Nobody ever said running the NWO was gonna be cheap.
Pony up proles.
Yes, crew and various expenses are in addition to fixed and hourly costs.
Maybe he and his little wifey will only tolerate a G5 or Global...or so. So that would be a lot more than 5k of course.
I really wouldn’t begrude them if the money had been earned honestly.
Phil Silvers as "Honest John" in an episode of The Beverly Hillbillies.
"Honest? Why I'm as honest as the day is long!"
Absolutely the point.
They didn’t come by it honestly.
I got a couple hundred decks of cards from NetJets and some left over bottles of them tiny glass booze canisters.
Nothing more than a slush fund
That’s about one million dollars per intern, isn’t it?
From the Maha -
By the way, when you fly on somebody else's jet you get a discounted rate. It's the way it works in political campaigns. Now, this has been the case in the past; I assume it still is. Let's say you're running for some office, you're a candidate, and a donor offers you his jet. You cannot accept a trip on his jet el freebo. Let's say his jet costs $5,000 to an hour fly. You don't pay that $5,000 an hour.
All you have to do is pay the equivalent of first class airfare, and you're legal, and that's what is meant hear in the Post by the discount rate. "Sometimes Clinton uses the plane at a discount rate for the foundation, and sometimes Catsimatitis donates the flight time to the charitable foundation, which has a variety of programs," blah, blah. They're not spending retail on these expenditures, and still they're racking up $50 million!
I could probably fly to the moon for $50 million.
Someday the private sector will be able to do that, probably get you a nice cozy underground habitat too.
SLUSH FUND.....MONEY LAUNDERING......Just the Clinton’s being the Clinton’s.
Clinton does NOT pay for his SS expenses......WE DO!!!! All this spending is for HIMSELF!
it is not a matter of someone exposing the Clintons to cause queen Hillary not to be coroneted, it is a matter of the Clintons getting all the dirty laundry in the press now, so when she is being coroneted, everything is old news, and the press will agree to have no interest in discussing it.
Is John Huang on the board of that foundation?
He pays for the transportation costs and I won’t tell you how I know that.
The Taxpayers pay for past President’s Secret Service detail for wherever he goes.....I have NEVER heard otherwise......UNLESS he’s paying for EXTRA ONES (doubt it unless they are WOMEN).....you can FreepMail me if you want.
