Former President Bill Clinton and his daughter, Chelsea, plan to stop raising money for the Clinton Foundation and turn over operations to independent parties if Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton is elected president, according to people familiar with the plans.
The Clintons also plan to discontinue after this year one of the foundation’s signature events, the Clinton Global Initiative….
Sure they will. Just like they said when HRC became Secretary of State that the Clinton Foundation would only accept donations from designated favored foreign governments rather than all governments seeking favor.
This time they’re being even more disingenuous: only Bill and Chelsea will stop (or so they say) fund-raising for the Clinton Foundation. The Foundation itself will continue raising funds, and Bill and Chelsea will continue raising funds outside of the Foundation.
Maybe the Clintons know of some beachfront property north of Santa Fe that they’d like to interest us in, too.
