A.B. Stoddard, Associate Editor for the Hill said that the Clintons “did not want to be transparent,” “in their actions” and that the Clinton Foundation sounds like “a slush fund to enrich the Clintons” on Thursday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel.
“They said they want to be transparent and — in their actions they did not want to be transparent. She has not put distance between herself and any ethically dubious potential conflicts of interest. Not at all. The foreign donations to the Clinton health program out of Boston doubled in three years when she was in the State Department. The number of donors who lobbied the State Department when she was Secretary of State, you know, almost 200. His — not only the amount of speeches but what he was paid for them went way up when she was Secretary of State. There might not be a smoking gun, but there’s so much smoke that the Clintons, with that many smart people in a large organization, we’re not talking about a couple disorganized bumblers, we’re talking about policy that was set and kept by everybody” she stated,
Stoddard also talked about the money spent by the Clinton Foundation on direct services, saying, “It was something like a measurement of 10% to 12% which is pitiful…they have got to answer questions about why they weren’t transparent, all the good they were doing, or they’re letting it bleed, and it literally sounds, like their enemies say, a slush fund to enrich the Clintons.”
