  • Clinton on foundation attacks: 'I know there's a lot of smoke, and there's no fire'

    CNN ^ | 5, 2016. 2 | Theodore Schleifer and Dan Merica,
    Hillary Clinton slammed Donald Trump and issued a strong defense of the Clinton Foundation Wednesday amid the Republican nominee's claims that she used public office for personal gain. Speaking to CNN's Anderson Cooper in her first national news interview in nearly a month, Clinton pushed back against Trump's accusations and issued perhaps her most succinct answers on her use of a private email server during her time leading the State Department. What is the Clinton Foundation and why is it controversial? "What Trump has said is ridiculous," Clinton said. "My work as secretary of state was not influenced by any...

    According to Dick Morris (a former political confidant and advisor to the Clintons), the coming election between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is “America’s Armageddon.” This existential fight will determine whether the United States continues hurtling towards a socialist dictatorship, or reclaims its commitment to individual freedom and free enterprise backed by the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the rule of law. It is the final, conclusive battle between the forces of good and evil. Hillary Clinton has several political and economic vulnerabilities that Donald Trump must exploit in the upcoming campaign to capture enough votes to win in...

    One of the more eyebrow-raising stories from the Clinton Foundation “pay to play” scandal is Crown Prince Salman of Bahrain – whose kingdom donated up to $150,000 directly to the Foundation, plus another $32 million to the Clinton Global Initiative – securing a meeting with the Secretary of State, after which she approved some highly controversial arms sales to Bahrain. ... Included among the Abedin-Band emails is an exchange revealing that when Crown Prince Salman of Bahrain requested a meeting with Secretary of State Clinton, he was forced to go through the Clinton Foundation for an appointment.

    WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange has accused Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton of committing “extortion” by hyping fears over the possibility of a Republican victory in order to attract left-wing voters. Both Trump and Sanders supporters are waiting with bated breath for the next email dump from Julian Assange, the founder and editor in chief of Wikileaks. He released hacked emails last month showing Democratic National Committee officials plotting to defeat Mrs. Clinton’s chief rival, Vermont Sen. Bernard Sanders. Wikileaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange promised to release more damning emails about the Clinton Foundation, and warned he has enough evidence on Hillary...

    Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders said Wednesday he’ll campaign actively this fall to send Democrat Hillary Clinton to the White House and bolster the party’s congressional candidates, with swings already planned in New Hampshire, New York and Washington state. And while he has policy disagreements with Clinton, Sanders urged those who backed his defeated bid for the Democratic presidential nomination to not defect to the Green Party’s Jill Stein or Libertarian Gary Johnson. “Politics is tough stuff, and you’ve got to make difficult choices,” Sanders, an independent, said in an interview with The Associated Press. “To me, this was not a...

    There’s no such thing as bad publicity. Yesterday the Hill reported that Hillary Clinton would be giving a big speech Thursday aimed at the so-called alt-right: Clinton’s campaign announced Tuesday morning that her Reno, Nev., speech would focus on Trump and his aides’ “embrace of the disturbing ‘alt-right’ political philosophy.” “This ‘alt-right’ brand is embracing extremism and presenting a divisive and dystopian view of America which should concern all Americans, regardless of party,” her campaign said. I don’t know what Hillary will be saying tomorrow but one thing I’m pretty certain of is that attacking the alt-right isn’t going to...

Everybody agrees.” “By the time they act, you’re going to say, ‘What was it?’ You won’t even remember what happened,” he added. ‘Let Congress act today! Let Congress act immediately!”

    State Department officials in fall 2009 - a year before the U.S. approved the deal - had obtained an internal strategy document from Russia's main nuclear energy firm, Rosatom, that provided a warning about Moscow's intentions as it "flexes muscles" in uranium markets. In one cable sent to Clinton, U.S. officials in Brussels warned Russia was about to strongarm U.S. ally Ukraine into a deal for "long-term supply of nuclear fuel" that could "shut" the U.S. company Westinghouse out of the market and extend Moscow's influence over Europe.

    As Donald Trump and his allies attempt to raise dubious questions over Hillary Clinton's health, the Republican nominee has invited new scrutiny into his own medical history. Like Clinton, Trump has released minimal information, most notably in the form of a December 2015 letter of a few paragraphs from his personal physician, a gastroenterologist, that described his blood pressure and lab results as "astonishingly excellent" while suggesting a President Trump would be the "healthiest individual ever elected." Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN's chief medical correspondent, found much of that language surprising and, in some cases, almost comically lacking in objective data....

    Trump has the merit of being a very tough-minded man who has dealt for decades with powerful people to get what he wants, and he has made billions doing it. He is no mere respecter of title or position, but a man who judges by what you actually can do. By comparison, Obama appears a weak figure next to such people, and so he has proved. He leaves office having not done a single worthwhile thing for his own people. And that is the so-called legacy Hillary Clinton is there to preserve and extend.

    The Democratic Party often warns us that mixing big money and politics will corrupt democracy. They must have nominated Hillary Clinton to prove it. The Clinton Foundation was ostensibly set up to solve the world’s most pressing problems. Though it’s done some fine work, its most fruitful program has been leveraging Clinton’s position in the State Department to enrich her family, friends and cronies. It’s against federal law for charities to act in the interests of private business or individuals. Yet the Clinton Foundation secured high-paying gigs for its namesakes and helped for-profit corporations with family ties set up lucrative...

They might add some details. But they usually answer the question. Clinton never answered the question about her health. All she did was mock the Trump supporters who keep bringing it up. Clinton intentionally avoided the question while skillfully making you think she addressed it. This is similar to Donald...

But a year later — and with just over three months until the election — Clinton is still being plagued by her decision to use a personal email account for work during her tenure as secretary of state....

    More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money - either personally or through companies or groups - to the Clinton Foundation. It's an extraordinary proportion indicating her possible ethics challenges if elected president. At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs, according to a review of State Department calendars released so far to The Associated Press. Combined, the 85...

    Donald Trump and his Republican allies say Hillary Clinton is weak, lacks stamina and doesn't look presidential. Intent on undermining his Democratic rival, Trump and GOP backers are increasingly relying on rhetoric that academics and even some Republican strategists say has an undeniable edge focused on gender. His criticism of Clinton goes beyond "Crooked Hillary," and complaints about her use of a private email server as secretary of state and her foreign policy decisions.

    After Hillary Clinton became secretary of state, Bill Clinton received $17.6 million in payments from a for-profit university. Since that time, another organization with a connection to that university received almost $90 million in grants from an agency that's part of the State Department.

    A senior executive at the Clinton Foundation left nearly 150 messages for one of Hillary Clinton’s top aides at the State Department over a two-year period, according to newly released call logs. The Clinton Foundation’s chief operating officer, Laura Graham, kept in close touch with Cheryl Mills, one of Clinton’s closest aides when she was secretary of state, according to the logs analyzed by Fox News. An August 2011 message the Clinton Foundation official left for the government worker references “our boss,” suggesting both women worked for the same person.

    Hillary Clinton took on two controversial topics in an interview on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Monday. First, Kimmel quizzed the Democratic presidential candidate about news that broke earlier in the day of the release of additional emails from the time she served as secretary of state. "The State Department said that they have to release 15,000 emails by — the deadline is a couple of days before the debate," Kimmel said. "Are you concerned about that?" "No," Clinton responded. "Jimmy, my emails are so boring. And I'm embarrassed about that. They're so boring. So we've already released, I don't...

    Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein blasted Hillary Clinton’s emails, saying Tuesday that the former secretary of state risked the lives of CIA secret agents and crossed the line in mixing her family’s personal business with her duties as chief diplomat. Ms. Stein appears intent on not repeating the mistakes of Sen. Bernard Sanders, who refused to question Mrs. Clinton’s “damn emails” and lost to her in the Democratic primary.
