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
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?
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.
When The Beast donates money it´s just being laundered. Notice Harvey never inappropriate relationshiped The Vile Witch. Thank goodness I´ve never paid money to watch anything Weinstein was involved in.
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.
A Clinton actually giving up some cash that´s already stuffed into their pockets???? That´s a laugh that only their sycophants and the Useless Media would pretend to believe. I say ´´pretend´´ because even those morons KNOW the Clintons are crooks she´s lying again.
Ah, so Weinstein´s Clinton campaign contributions are unspent? So why is Hillary allowed to hang on to campaign donations? We know she must have it in an interest bearing account. Campaign funds are not for personal enrichment, by law.
Who´s she kidding? They are going to be in serious financial squeeze now that the clinton influence is history. The foundation is toast. No country will donate a penny, since she won´t be in the WH. These people are despicable. For the first time in their lives, they are going to find out what it means to work for their money. And writing soul searching books ain´t gonna do it.
Translation: "I claim to give 10% of my income to charity every year. That fictitious amount should cover any donations from Harvey Weinstein which I actually spent long ago during my failed presidential campaign."
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.
If all men are rotten – then what? Only a few weeks ago all men were heroes. The hurricanes in Texas and Florida brought out the best in us, according to a well-known feminist whose name slips my mind, but anyway, thank you for the compliment. Look who comes to the rescue, she said. Look at the people who risk their lives to serve as first responders – nearly all of them MEN. Can I get me a Halleluiah? Not so fast. A few weeks ago, yes, but feels more like a million years ago because all of a sudden, thanks to Harvey
The FBI was investigating a plot involving Russian kickbacks and bribes before the Obama administration gave a green light to a Moscow-controlled company gaining control of U.S. uranium production, it was reported Tuesday. The deal, which won agency approval in 2010, allowed Rosatom, the Russian atomic energy agency, gain control of U.S. uranium stockpiles. The State Department, then run by Hillary Clinton, and a special committee were required to sign off on the deal, since it led to Russia gaining control of one-fifth of U.S. uranium supplies and production. As far back as 2009, the FBI was probing bribes in the Russian
BILL CLINTON has come under fire after mocking Brexit and saying Leave voters had no idea what they were voting for. The former president hit out at those who support the UK’s departure from the European Union, saying it was ridiculous to think that differences were more important that what people have in common. And he claimed some Brexit voters may only now be realising the impact of their decision. Speaking at Dublin University today as he accepted an honorary doctorate, Mr Clinton even went so far as to mimick a Brexit voter as he warned inequality and division was taking over
An "unusual" reddish sky and red-looking sun have been reported across many parts of England. The phenomenon was initially seen in the west of England and Wales before spreading to other areas. BBC weather presenter Simon King said it was due to the remnants of Hurricane Ophelia dragging in tropical air and dust from the Sahara. He added that debris from forest fires in Portugal and Spain was also playing a part. The dust has caused shorter wavelength blue light to be scattered, making it appear red. BBC Weather Watchers: Why has the sky turned red? He said: "Ophelia originated in the Azores where
HURRICANE Ophelia is THREE HOURS away from smashing the UK in what is now feared to be the worst storm for 60 years sparking warnings to take “immediate action”. and UK More than 1,000 Army troops are on standby with 100mph gales set to lash swathes of the country through the next 48 hours.

The Met Office has in the past hour extended this alert from Ireland into a wider part of western and northern Britain while bringing the danger time forward
Authorities have greenlighted an expedition in a German cave complex to search for £200million worth of treasure from Russia´s Amber room, which was looted by Nazis during World War II. A trio of aging sleuths - homeopath Leonhard Blume, 73, scientist Günter Eckardt, 67, and georadar specialist Peter Lohr, 71 - are convinced the missing Amber Room of the Russian Tsars lies in the Prince´s Cave in the Hartenstein hills near Dresden. Third Reich scientists used the cave complex during the war - but all records of what went on there have mysteriously vanished from local archives. Lohr used radar imaging to detect

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has lashed out at WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, describing him as ´a tool of Russian intelligence´ to disrupt the 2016 US election. In an interview with ABC´s Four Corners, which is to air on Monday night, Clinton claims he colluded with Russia and damaged her candidacy for president. ´Assange has become a kind of nihilistic opportunist who does the bidding of a dictator,´ she said. ´WikiLeaks is unfortunately now practically a fully owned subsidiary of Russian intelligence.´ Assange, who has been living inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London since 2012 to avoid extradition to the United States,
MOGADISHU - The death toll from twin bomb blasts that struck busy junctions in the heart of Somalia’s capital Mogadishu has jumped to 85, making it one of the deadliest attacks since an Islamist insurgency began in 2007. President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo declared three days of national mourning and called for donations of blood and funds to victims of Saturday’s attack. At least 100 others were wounded. Police said a truck bomb exploded outside a hotel in the K5 intersection that is lined with government offices, restaurants and kiosks, flattening several buildings and setting dozens of vehicles on fire. Two hours later,
With a little probing, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson responded to Sen. Bob Corker´s complaint that he had been ´castrated´ by President Trump on the world stage. ´I checked. I´m fully intact,´ Tillerson told CNN´s Jake Tapper on Sunday. On Friday, Corker, the retiring Tennessee Republican who has been feuding with President Trump all week, told the Washington Post he was the ´most exercised about´ the president´s treatment of Tillerson, who Corker complimented for making great strides with China, only to be undercut. ´When you jack the legs out from under your chief diplomat, you cause all that to fall apart,´ Corker
Like many South Floridians, I couldn’t decide whether to stay at home or leave town when Hurricane Irma threatened the region. I had lived through Hurricane Andrew at the age of 22, weeks after my father died, and it was one of the most traumatic times in my life. Finally, the nonstop barrage of frightening headlines about Irma’s destructive power led us to a last-minute decision to evacuate. Because we delayed until the day before Irma’s winds arrived, we weren’t fully prepared and left some important items behind. Fortunately, we returned to find the house undamaged, and dealing with the outdoor cleanup,
NIGEL FARAGE warned that the EU had become not just the enemy of the UK, but an enemy to every European state. Jean-Claude Juncker and his Brussels cohort will stop at nothing to realise their dream of a European super-state, according to Nigel Farage. The former Ukip leader made the declaration during an impassioned call to arms for ordinary Europeans to rise up against the "political authoritarianism" on the EU. Mr Farage delivered the incredible address on his LBC phone-in show, claiming that Phillip Hammond was right to call the EU the enemies of Britain. The arch-Brexiteer said that the Chancellor, who
Hillary Clinton was forced to make a series of embarrassing media cancellations today after falling and hurting her foot, MailOnline can reveal. The former First Lady failed to show up at BBC Woman’s Hour, ITV´s This Morning show and at the London Studios to record an interview with the BBC´s Graham Norton Show. Sources said her fall had followed her appearance at the South Bank Centre last night and the twice-defeated Presidential candidate had been exhausted after a lengthy book promotion tour. This Morning presenter Philip Schofield said on Snapchat: ´Supposed to be interviewing Hillary Clinton... but she´s fallen over
Hillary Clinton fell and broke her toe during her book tour in London as President Trump said he hoped she would run for president again in 2020.Clinton, who had to cancel several interviews on Monday, appeared on "The Graham Norton Show" with a protective walking boot on her right foot.“I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards,” she said.“I tried to get up and it really hurt. I’ve broken my toe,” Clinton continued, going on to say she received
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted “half-baked, spurious nationalism” in the United States in an emotional speech Monday night after receiving the National Constitution Center’s Liberty Medal. “To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ´the last best hope of earth´ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of
Hillary Clinton slammed what she called "endemic" sexism and misogyny in America during an interview with Fareed Zakaria, which aired Sunday. Clinton, who was interviewed by Zakaria on his show, "GPS," said sexism was so inherent that she purposely hadn´t highlighted her career history of fighting for women´s rights when she ran for president in 2016. However, she admitted that with the benefit of hindsight, she "could have tried harder" to do so. "I´m a middle-class girl from the middle of the country, and so I always struggled with like, OK, so what´s my story. And it suddenly dawned on me that
Sure, it´s been more than 340 days since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, but there´s still one very narrow, highly unlikely and entirely unprecedented way that Clinton could become president. And it has some Democratic die-hards dreaming again. Harvard University professor Lawrence Lessig offered a Clinton path to the presidency on Medium, putting forward a series of "if/then" scenarios that lead to House Speaker Paul Ryan handing the White House keys to Clinton. Here´s how constitutional law expert Lessig lays it out: If number 1: If Trump is definitively found to have colluded directly with Russia, he would be forced to resign or
New York activist Tamika Mallory says she was booted from an American Airlines flight in Miami after a pilot inserted himself into a dispute over her seat assignment. Mallory, a co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington, was traveling home to New York when the pilot followed her to scold her over an argument she had with a gate agent. He then had her summoned from her seat and kicked off the flight, she told the Daily News. “It definitely was white male aggression. I was singled out, I was disrespected, and he was trying to intimidate me. I was
Jane Fonda made it clear she is not proud of America. During a recent interview with the BBC, Fonda was asked, "Are you proud of America today?" The actress was very quick to reply with a hard "no." "But, I’m proud of the resistance," she elaborated. "I’m proud of the people who are turning out in unprecedented numbers and continue over and over and over again to protest what Trump is doing. I’m very proud of them, that core." During the same interview, the 79-year-old was asked if she had a "sense of regret" for her visit to North Vietnam in 1972. The
Hillary Clinton on Sunday defended NFL players who knelt during the national anthem, saying kneeling is a “reverent” position that is not against “our anthem or our flag.” The former Democratic presidential candidate, who was at the Southbank Centre´s London Literature Festival, urged Democrats to use the issue against President Trump. Clinton was embarking on a foreign trip to promote her book “What Happened.” She said people should resist “what are very clear dog-whistles” to the Trump base, pointing to the example of kneeling NFL players. “That´s what black athletes kneeling was all about,” she said in response to a question about ways to
If the NFL thought Americans would ease the backlash against the league — they were sadly mistaken. Photos of empty stadiums from around the league show how dire a situation kneelers have spurred. (Photo) Breitbart News reports: Note, that the Jets played New England on Sunday, meaning there should have been a big crowd for that game. The Texans, Atlanta, and Baltimore are also very relevant teams with relatively loyal fan bases. Yet, thousands upon thousands of fans no-showed or didn’t buy tickets for those games. (Photos/Tweet) Here’s a shot of the Jaguars stadium at kickoff: (Tweet) Photos of empty
Former NFL quarter Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance against NFL owners because he believes they colluded to keep him out of a job due to his protests during the national anthem. Kaepernick first protested in the 2016 preseason when he took a knee during the national anthem. He claimed he protested against racial injustice across the country. The protests took off, with many players following his lead.Kaepernick hired criminal defense lawyer Mark Geragos, who has represented Michael Jordan and musician Chris Brown. CBS Sports reported this statement from Geragos: We can confirm that this morning we filed a grievance under the
Sen. John McCain warned against the US turning toward ´half-baked, spurious nationalism´ and jabbed at unnamed pushers of isolationist politics while at an event honoring the war hero´s contributions. (Snip) ´To abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems, is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history,´ he said. He added: ´We live in a land made of
Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough said President Donald Trump was the “antithesis” of the teachings of Jesus Christ. Scarborough said, “You look in Matthew, and go through the Beatitudes. Every single Beatitude. You go through Jesus’s teaching. What he says he wants people to be. Donald Trump is the antithesis of just about every single thing that Jesus Christ said on the Sermon on the Mount. Go read it.” He added, “None of us are perfect, but he goes out of his way it seems to thumb his nose at all conventions. Including the basics of
