Hillary and Bill Clinton released their tax returns on Friday, in what was seen by many as an attempt to force Donald Trump to release his. He says he is being audited by the IRS and can’t release his returns until they’re done. It’s a time for back and forth accusations.
The Clintons, who Hillary claimed left the White House dead broke, tax returns show that the couple earned $10,745,378 last year, mostly on income from giving public speeches. $10 million worth of speeches? Really?
Of that amount, they donated $1,042,000 to charity, which got them a nice big deduction, although all the contribution went to the Clinton Family Foundation — which they control and which acts as their family piggy bank. The Clinton Family Foundation is separate from the Clinton Foundation which has been at the center of claims of donations from countries with records of human rights abuses. Most of the criticism is directed at the wealthy donors to the “non-profit” who then received favors from the Secretary’s State Department.
President Obama’s Justice Department according to CNN, declined a request to investigate the Clinton Foundation from the FBI,though other sources say this is not true..The Foundation may still be under federal investigation. Preet Bharara, the U.S, Attorney for the southern district of New York, is conducting a joint investigation with the FBI out of his office.
As more emails are released, it becomes clear that big donations to the Clinton Foundation resulted in job offers, favors for the donor, and big pay for a speech from Bill got favors from the U.S, State Department. Hillary is getting a lot of support from big business and the tech industry — apparently because they know she can be bought.
