Hillary Clinton says she is giving the Democratic donations Harvey Weinstein gave her to charity. Clinton, who remained silent for six days after the Weinstein scandal broke, told CNN Wednesday ´There´s no one to give it back to. What other people are saying, what my former colleagues are saying, is that they´re going to donate it to charity, and of course I will do that.´ Clinton added ´I give 10 per cent of my income to charity every year, this will be part of that. There´s no doubt about it.´ einstein raised and donated hundreds of thousands of dollars for Clinton, going back

Her charity if choice is, of course, the Clinton Foundation.

FTA: Clinton added ´I give 10 per cent of my income to charity every year, this will be part of that. There´s no doubt about it.´

So, is she "giving back" Weinstein´s campaign donations (to charity)??

Or will she add Weinstein´s campaign donations to her "normal" 10% of income for charity to deduct from her taxes??

Or will she just count it as part of her "10% for charity" tax deduction and spend a like sum of her "other" monies??

That´s as far as I read, but I vote for option number 3.

I think I´ll wait for the headline:

Clinton DONATED Her Weinstein Campaign . . ."

I would wager she doesn´t even bother to laundry the money through a sham charity.

Lady Lucifer´s tax returns, filed jointly with Dollar Bill Clinton, showed that their charity of choice was the Clinton Foundation.
So her gesture is meaningless. Dollars are fungible.

FTA: "Clinton added ´I give 10 per cent of my income to charity every year, this will be part of that "
So she is keeping it and using it as part of her 10% which means she is personally giving less than 10%. She would have to give it over and above her normal 10% for it to be honest. But then, honesty was never her strong suit, was it?

parse every word she uttered:

I give 10 per cent of my income[taxable income? gross income?] to charity [Clinton Foundation?] every year, this [legally ambigous] will be part of that [legally ambigous]. There´s no doubt about it [legally ambigous].

Basically she has stated that she gives 10% of something to someone every year.

what is definition of "Democratic donation". Unlikely that includes Clinton Foundation, PACS, maybe even her own personal campaign. Maybe only donations to the Democratic National Party..hard to know what it refers to.

Remember these are the people that recently refilled years of Clinton Foundation Tax returns.

She´s laughing at all the rubes that think a single penny she controls that came from Weinstein, will every be relenquished.

The L-Dotters are on to the HildeBeast.
It speaks to the corruption of the ´news media´ that so many people are not.

The Beast MAY take a few bucks and ´donate to charity´- the Clinton Crime Foundation (taking the money from one pocket and putting it in the other.... most likely scenario) or there is a slight chance she may give a few nickels to PP, AKA ´The Black Baby Killers´.

My feeling is that, as is the usual case when her lips are moving, that she is simply lying, and that she is KEEPING THE CA$H.

She was very clear in what she said, she intends to do nothing but sustain her ongoing 10% plan so there is absolutely no difference in what she intends to do.

Simply double speak meaning: I won’t give back one thin dime of it.

I don´t get the logic that this poisoned money should go to another charity. It is still poisoned money. Give it back to the giver. I know that sounds strange but passing ill gotten money along just ingratiates another in the line of passing bad money. Send the money back to the source and be done with it.

My questions, too, #2, and conclusions.

The next question ought to have been, "But will you deduct the ´donation´ from your taxes as ´charitable contributions´?"

Her "disgust" at Weinstein was over-the-top disgusting. Reeks of fake outrage. She´s lived with this and excused this and attacked female victims of this for her whole lifetime with Bill.

Sheriff Ken Christesen confirms the shooting at Aztec High School on Thursday morning. The school is in the Four Corners region and is near the Navajo Nation. Authorities say the school was placed on lockdown and evacuated. Other schools in the area were also locked down, and authorities were setting up staging areas where parents could gather

GE is slashing 1,100 jobs from its UK power business under an organisational restructure, the firm announced. The planned losses will hit the UK´s engineering heartland in the Midlands, affecting Stafford and Rugby, with the total potential losses representing around 6 per cent of the company´s UK workforce. GE blamed deteriorating market conditions which have had a ´significant impact´ on its economic performance, adding that demand for new built power plants had ´dramatically´ dropped in all developing countries. The US industrial group expects the ´painful but necessary´ job losses to help save $1billion next year as demand for fossil fuel power plants

A record 400 arrests were made for terrorism-related offences in Great Britain in the year to the end of September 2017, Home Office figures show. The figures were increased by a series of arrests following terror attacks in Westminster, Manchester, London Bridge and Finsbury Park. Around 60 people were detained in swoops in the wake of four terror attacks in the UK between March and June. Earlier this week, a report revealed that police and MI5 have foiled nine plots since the Westminster attack in March, in addition to the terrorist incidents that have occurred.

NBC staffers are afraid to travel to South Korea to cover the Winter Olympics because they are worried they will get nuked by Kim Jong-un. While the games are usually an event reporters would be clamoring to cover, the hostilities on the Korean Peninsula have been enough to dissuade journalists from wanting to make the trip. The upcoming PyeongChang Olympic Games will be held 40 miles south of the demilitarized zone separating South Korea from North Korea and is less than 200 miles from Pyongyang.

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump will announce on Wednesday that the United States recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and will move its embassy there, breaking with longtime U.S. policy and potentially stirring unrest. Despite warnings from Western and Arab allies, Trump in a 1 p.m. (1800 GMT) White House speech will direct the State Department to begin looking for a site for an embassy in Jerusalem as part of what is expected to be a years-long process of relocating diplomatic operations from Tel Aviv. Trump is to sign a national security waiver delaying a move of the embassy, since

The woman who outed White House intern Monica Lewinsky as Bill Clinton´s ´mistress,´ paints the former president with the same brush as men like Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer and Kevin Spacey – a sexual predator. Linda Tripp felt compelled to speak out to DailyMailTV after two decades of silence, saying that giving the President ´a pass´ for his behavior all those years ago brought us to where we are today. Tripp has pointed to that time in history as giving men in power the permission to abuse their status in order to satisfy their sexual appetites. But Bill Clinton wasn´t the only one

Rumors that the Republican National Committee was built on the site of an ancient moron burial ground gained new credence this week when it confirmed that it was renewing its support for Alabama´s Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. I shouldn’t joke, because the worst thing about the RNC’s decision isn’t the stupidity — though the stupidity is real, and spectacular — but the moral obscenity. Last month, the RNC and the National Republican Senatorial Committee pulled out of their joint fundraising agreements because Moore had been credibly accused by several women of having preyed upon them when they were teenagers,

WASHINGTON — John Conyers III, who was endorsed by his father on Tuesday to succeed him in the House, was arrested in February after his girlfriend suffered knife cuts during an argument. Mr. Conyers, in an interview Wednesday, tried to head off a possibly disqualifying scandal just a day after his father resigned from Congress amid multiplying allegations of sexual harassment. As issues of sexual harassment and abuse roil Washington, any violent altercation against a woman could doom his effort to take the seat that his father held since 1965. The younger Mr. Conyers said that the couple began arguing around 3

Sen. John McCain´s (R-Ariz.) former presidential campaign manager, Steve Schmidt, said early Thursday that President Trump was "clearly slurring his words" during an announcement that the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, adding that "the impairment is chilling." "I don’t know the cause of it, but when you combine it with [Sen.] Bob Corker’s critique that the president of the United States is unstable, that he’s dangerous, when you look at the private comments that are made by members of Congress around his stability, you look at his actions in recent weeks," said Schmidt, who is also an

How is it possible that Hillary Clinton escaped criminal indictment for mishandling classified documents despite incriminating evidence that she violated the Espionage Act? Why did Donald Trump become the target of a criminal investigation for allegedly conspiring with Russia to influence the presidential election despite no evidence that he ever did so? The answer, it seems, comes down to one person who played a vital role in both cases: Peter Strzok, deputy director of counterintelligence at the FBI. Strzok was exchanging politically charged texts with an FBI lawyer that denigrated Trump and lauded Clinton at the same time he was

We already know Steve Bannon believes that politics is war. But during the course of his speech at an Alabama rally for Roy Moore this week, he gave the country an ugly lesson in what scorched-earth political warfare really entails. (Snip)Still, despite all the fun he’s having attacking his favorite targets and boosting Moore, Bannon has to be aware that he isn’t winning his war on McConnell. Try as he might to deny it, he knows McConnell is now more important to Trump than the Breitbart attack machine is. It was McConnell’s successful maneuvering and negotiating that gave Trump his

Former President Barack Obama is taking credit for the robust economic growth that is taking place under President Trump. At a conference of mayors in Chicago, Mr. Obama congratulated himself Tuesday for strong employment numbers in the U.S. this year, saying his climate-change policies have contributed to growth. “As we took these actions, we saw the U.S. economy grow consistently,” Mr. Obama said. “We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far, a streak that still continues by the way.” He added wryly, “Thanks, Obama.” The stock market has gained about 30 percent in value since

Sen. Al Franken took a quick glance up at a jam-packed Senate press gallery as he entered the chamber Thursday, preparing to ask Alaska Sen. Dan Sullivan, who was presiding over the chamber, to allow him to make the speech that would end his political career. A senator who has long dodged questions from reporters, he finally had one for them. "Ready?" And with that, Franken, D-Minn., set out on his farewell address to the Senate — a 12-minute speech where he continued to proclaim his innocence against eight women who have accused him of sexual misconduct in recent weeks.

Democratic Rep. John Lewis of Georgia is refusing to attend the Thursday opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights museum since President Donald Trump will be there. Lewis, who played a crucial role in ushering in civil rights for black Americans, will not be speaking at the opening because Trump’s presence is an insult to the men and women represented in the museum, Time reported. (Snip) The ceremony is planned for Saturday to celebrate the 200-year anniversary of Mississippi entering the union. Republican Gov. Phil Bryant extended an invitation to the president to attend, sparking a wave of outrage from various
