Posted on 08/14/2015 5:30:35 AM PDT by Brad from Tennessee
Hillary Clintons family foundation quietly updated its list of donors last week, significantly reducing the amount that it says has been given by a Mexican telecom tycoon whose company was recently accused of deceptive U.S. advertising.
The little-noticed update to the website of the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation added contributions made in the first half of this year. But it also dramatically reduced listed contributions from billionaire Carlos Slim.
Prior to the update, Slim was listed as a $1 million to $5 million contributor. The updated version of the site says he has donated between $250,000 and $500,000.
A spokesman for the group declined to speak on the record about the change, but a foundation official who asked to remain anonymous acknowledged the change. If needed, we correct the attribution on our list to accurately reflect the source of the support, the official said.
The Clinton Foundation voluntarily discloses its donors, but the lack of any legal disclosure requirement makes it difficult to know whether its publicly available list of contributors is accurate and complete.
Slim, the worlds second-wealthiest man, runs a number of telecommunications companies in his native Mexico. One of them, TracFone, is a prominent U.S. federal government contractor. The company paid $40 million to the Federal Trade Commission in January to settle allegations of deceptive advertising practices.
TracFone has donated between $5 million and $10 million to the Clinton Foundation, according to its website. . .

So more of his donations, I presume, technically came from one of his companies.
[...technically came from one of his companies]
That’s the same MO used by Mark Zuckerburg through Silicon Valley Community and Soros uses with his many branches of influence.
And that's just the 'contributions' that are public... aboveboard... easily found...
Isn’t this the company that provides the Obamaphones??????
IF so, USA taxpayer funds are going into the Clinton Foundation coffers. A circle jerk of money transfers.

Yes Carlos Slim Helu of Mexico, (son of Lebanese immigrants) worth $80 billion, number two richest man in world after Bill Gates, owns TelMex who sells us the Obama phone, I believe its called Tracfone, not sure. Not to mention Carlos Slim Helu owns 16 million shares of the New York Times.http://www.forbes.com/sites/doliaestevez/2015/01/15/is-mexican-billionaire-carlos-slim-becoming-the-new-york-times-largest-investor-purely-business/
He also owns controlling interest in Univision, who Donald Trump recently sued for $500 million for some dust up over the beauty pageant. Carlos also owns a lot of Verizon, and I believe Banco Wal-Mart, Wal-Marts Mexican bank division, soccer teams, etc.
Most likely each donation to the Clinton Foundation has the circle jerk phenomenon attached to it. We are talking about a former sitting president and his secretary of state wife, who happens to now be running for President herself. It’s how they play the game up on the D.C. Hill, the real GAME OF THRONES.
