Hillary! – Foreign Policy for Sale III: Can you say “slush fund”?

The Federalist has more on foreign governments and businesses (successfully) trying to influence U. S. foreign policy through donations to the Clinton Foundation.  But I found this particularly eye-opening (Emphasis mine.):

Between 2009 and 2012, the Clinton Foundation raised over $500 million dollars according to a review of IRS documents by The Federalist (2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008). A measly 15 percent of that, or $75 million, went towards programmatic grants. More than $25 million went to fund travel expenses. Nearly $110 million went toward employee salaries and benefits. And a whopping $290 million during that period — nearly 60 percent of all money raised — was classified merely as “other expenses.”

Face it.  The Clinton Foundation is a big Bill and Hillary slush fund.
