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.
Gunshots were fired at a US Air Force base in Britain today and it was locked down after a man allegedly tried to ram his car onto the site. Police rushed to the Royal Air Force Mildenhall base in Suffolk to respond to the ´significant security alert´ this afternoon and one man was arrested. Shots were fired by American service personnel at about 1pm and the man was detained with cuts and bruises and taken into custody. It has been claimed that the suspect is a British citizen who pretended to be someone he was not - possibly a senior
One of the last unsung heroines of the famous Dambusters raid in World War two has died. Maureen Stevens was a radio telephone operator who helped guide the Lancaster bombers back to their base at RAF Scampton, Lincolnshire, after they had dropped their bouncing bombs. Her calming voice helped reassure the surviving crews as they flew home from the iconic raid on Germany´s Möhne, Eder and Sorpe dams in the early hours of May 17, 1943. Mrs Stevens died aged 97 at Saxlingham Hall nursing home near Norwich, Norfolk, the day before she was due to celebrate her 74th wedding
BREXIT-BACKING politicians should demand an EU “no deal” now, it is claimed, after nearly 120,000 people called for the UK to walk away immediately. Support for the online campaign has soared in recent days after Theresa May agreed to pay up to £39 billion to leave the bloc. Brussels politicians have caused further outrage among Leavers by saying Brexit trade talks cannot formally begin until March. A petition, demanding Mrs May ditches the Article 50 process, sailed past the 100,000 mark on Saturday, meaning it must now be considered for debate by MPs. By Monday morning it stood at just under 118,000 signatures,
KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (Reuters) - A car bomber attacked a NATO convoy in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar on Sunday, killing one civilian and wounding four others but without causing casualties among international forces, officials said. Qudratullah Khushbakht, a spokesman for the Kandahar governor, said the attack happened on the airport road, killing a woman and wounding four other people. However a spokesman for the NATO-led Resolute Support mission said there had been no injuries among troops in the convoy. “We can confirm a suicide bomber attempted an attack on a patrol in Kandahar, Afghanistan, earlier today. However, there were no fatalities or
The advertising watchdog is investigating Amazon for misleading customers on delivery times amid claims it threatens drivers with £110 fines if they call in sick. The company has received countless complaints for failing to deliver items on time in the run up to Christmas. A £79-a-year Amazon Prime subscription promises delivery within two days but customers have found items taking up to four days to arrive. Chris Styles, from the West Midlands, was expecting a present for his niece to be delivered in one day. He told the Sunday Telegraph: ´I spent all day on the phone with Amazon. My orders were due

John McCain wants to return to work as ´soon as possible´ as he continues undergoing treatment for an aggressive form of brain cancer, according to a friend. The Arizona senator, 81, was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme in the summer and is currently ´resting´ at the Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington after suffering the normal side-effects of the therapy. The treatment is thought to be having a positive effect on the symptoms of the underlying cancer. Senator Lindsey Graham, of South Carolina, told ABC News: ´He´s receiving treatment for the side effects
DONALD Tump and Vladimir Putin have discussed North Korea over the phone this evening. The pair discussed bilateral relations and the situation in the Korean Peninsula during a telephone call, the Kremlin said in a statement this evening. Both leaders agreed to continue contacts, the Kremlin added, but did not provide further details. This is a developing story, more to follow…
California has not paid any of the $1.2 billion claims stemming from the Oroville Dam crisis, it has emerged. The main spillway of the nation´s tallest dam was heavily damaged in February, after heavy rains forced the dam operators to continue using it The flows exacerbated damage to the structure, eventually carving a massive gash through the concrete spillway. Chunks of concrete flew off the nearly mile-long spillway, which had not been used since the dam opened in 1968, creating a 200-foot-long, 30-foot-deep hole. Nearly 200,000 were ordered to evacuate as the emergency spillway threatened to collapse, but disaster was averted.
First, as the week began, came news of an attempted Islamic terrorist attack at New York’s Port Authority Bus Terminal…and next came everything we needed to know about the Mainstream News Media, which has once again, or finally become a punch line and a laughingstock. We need to exclude Fox News from that leftist cabal. Only Fox News still gives it mostly straight up, mostly fair and balanced. That same evening, visiting family when the Network News just came on, my son said, “Dad, which do you want first, the anti-cop story, the anti-Israel story, or the anti-Trump story?” That was ABC,
WASHINGTON - Congressional Republicans reached a deal on final tax legislation on Wednesday, clearing the way for final votes next week on a package that would slash the U.S. corporate tax rate to 21 percent and cut taxes for wealthy Americans. Under an agreement between the House of Representatives and the Senate, the corporate tax would be 1 percentage point higher than the 20 percent rate earlier proposed, but still far below the current headline rate of 35 percent, a deep tax reduction that corporations have sought for years. As they finalized the biggest tax overhaul in 30 years, Republicans wavered
Over 700 employees at the Environmental Protection Agency have quit or taken early retirement during the Trump administration so far, bringing the agency close to employment levels not seen since Reagan. ThinkProgress, whose senior editor is scared of his plumber who he fears may have voted for Trump, is warning that the exodus will lead to "dirtier air" and "dirtier water." "Since Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt took over the top job at the agency in March, more than 700 employees have either retired, taken voluntary buyouts, or quit, signaling the second-highest exodus of employees from the agency in nearly a
An MSNBC spokesman confirmed Saturday the company made a separation-related payment to one of Chris Matthews employees after the woman complained about sexual harassment. Two sources familiar with the situation told The Daily Caller that Matthews paid $40,000 to settle with an assistant producer on his show, “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” in 1999 after she accused him of harassment. An MSNBC spokesperson contested that claim to the Caller, saying the company instead paid significantly less as part of a severance package. The woman complained to CNBC executives about Matthews making inappropriate comments and jokes about her while in the company
There’s bad news and there’s worse news for President Donald Trump in new polls released this week. First comes the latest round of polling showing that Trump is the most unpopular president on record. Just 32% of respondents to a new Associated Press-NORC poll said they approved of the job Trump is doing as president, while an overwhelming 67% they disapproved. Among those who don’t think the president is doing a good job, more than half say they “strongly disapprove” of his work. The poll — conducted earlier this month — also suggests that nearly 70% of Americans believe the United States is “heading
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is returning to Arizona and will miss the final vote on his party’s tax bill this week, CBS News reported Sunday. McCain, who has been hospitalized at Walter Reed Medical Center suffering from the side effects of his treatment for brain cancer, reportedly left Washington, D.C., on Sunday to return home for the holidays. This means he will not be in D.C. for the GOP tax bill vote, which is expected to take place early in the week. Republicans have won over two key votes for the measure, meaning they should still have the razor-thin majority needed to
I don’t know whether this is comedy or a sign that in rural America, Democrats really don’t have anyone to run in statewide races. There were rumors that Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) could become the next director of the CIA, current CIA Director Mike Pompeo would become secretary of state, and current Secretary of State Rex Tillerson would be asked to take a hike. Talk about some unwelcome Thanksgiving news if you’re Tillerson. The Trump White House has rejected the notion that this plan is in the works. Tillerson himself said he’s never considered leaving his current post.
It appears the Obama Administration weaponized the Federal Bureau of Investigation just like they weaponized the Internal Revenue Service. The Obama administration used government agencies to wage a covert war on their political enemies. This is an all-out war. We have a growing mountain of evidence to suggest the FBI was attempting to overthrow a duly elected president. We have evidence to suggest the FBI was protecting Hillary Clinton so she might be elected president. There is no smoking gun just yet – but the evidence is staggering – it is simply staggering. Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) told the Todd
For much of the year, Kirsten Gillibrand’s critics — sensing a presidential aspirant in their midst — had assumed that the New York senator could not hear enough about herself. For one day at least, it appeared she had. It had been about 10 hours since President Trump accused her of “begging” for campaign contributions that she “would do anything” to secure, and the Ms. Gillibrand, driving with her 14-year-old son on Tuesday evening, flipped on the radio looking for an update on the Senate race in Alabama. The top story, instead, was her. The radio went off again. What, exactly,
Hillary Clinton responded to a "Saturday Night Live" actor who showed off a new tattoo in the former Democratic presidential nominee´s likeness.Pete Davidson posted an image of his new Hillary ink on his Instagram page, saying it was a "gift" for the 2016 runner-up."Wanted to get @HillaryClinton a Christmas gift so I got a tattoo of my hero," Davidson, 24, wrote on Instagram. "Thanks for being such a bad-[expletive] and one of the strongest people in the universe," he wrote. (Tweet) Clinton later commented on Davidson´s post, thanking him for his support."Thanks," the former first lady wrote. "This makes it
PART I A GLOBAL THREAT EMERGES How Hezbollah turned to trafficking cocaine and laundering money through used cars to finance its expansion. In its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States, according to a POLITICO investigation. The campaign, dubbed Project Cassandra, was launched in 2008 after the Drug Enforcement Administration amassed evidence that Hezbollah had transformed itself from a Middle East-focused military and political organization into an international crime syndicate that some investigators believed was
O.J. Simpson´s former lawyer and an investigator who worked on his case have revealed plans for a book they say will finally put to rest the public´s disbelief that he was acquitted of murder. F.Lee Bailey was one of several lawyers who worked on Simpson´s case in the 1990s. (Snip) Now 84, Bailey and Pat McKenna, the investigator who the defense hired, are shopping a book to publishers which they say will finally address what millions have been incredulous over for decades - how did OJ get off? ´We’re not writing this to make a fortune. ´We’re writing this to
The Democracy Dies in Darkness Café is located conveniently near the Capitol, the Hill and the FBI headquarters. It’s open all night and I stopped in for a late-night coffee with my friend, a fiction novelist who was depressed. “I spent a year writing about a coup attempt against an outsider who by strategic brilliance defeated the handpicked candidate of a cabal of establishment powerhouses. It involved the highest officials of the FBI and Department of Justice. They manipulated a FISA Court into letting them electronically surveil the candidate and all who worked with him, unmasked their names, leaked what
Washington — Once again, black women showed up for Democrats, with nearly all of them voting in Alabama for new Sen. Doug Jones, just as they did for Democratic candidates up and down the ballot in other states over the last few months. The same women, having proven their loyalty by voting 98 percent for Senator Jones, now wonder whether the Democratic Party will return the favor by sharing some of the party´s political power, handing over places at the negotiating table and pushing legislation that speaks to their unique issues. "Black women showed up and showed out," said Kimberlè
