• Clinton Foundation Apologizes Amid Foreign Donation Scandal: “We Made Mistakes”

    It’s been confirmed that Hillary’s family Foundation hid millions in foreign donations given by the head of the Russian Government’s uranium company (Uranium One), while that company was lobbying Hillary Clinton’s State Dept. for one fifth of America’s uranium production.

    And amid this bombshell, among others, the Clinton Foundation has apologized for its “mistakes.”

    “We made mistakes, as many organizations of our size do, but we are acting quickly to remedy them,” foundation executive Maura Pally wrote in a blog on the foundation website. “And we have taken steps to ensure they don’t happen in the future.”

    Not disclosing millions in foreign donations is a direct violation of the Memorandum of Understanding that Hillary Clinton signed with the Obama administration before she became his secretary of state.

    As the New York Times confirmed, the Memorandum of Understanding that Clinton signed with the Obama administration was to ensure that she disclose all foreign donations during her tenure as secretary of state.

    As Clinton Cash author Peter Schweizer points out, he doesn’t have proof; that’s for federal officials to find out.

    But “the smoking gun is in the pattern of behavior,” Schweizer argued Sunday on ABC’s This Week.

    When you ever have an issue of the flow of funds to political candidates whether that’s to their campaigns, whether that’s to private foundations, whether that’s to their spouse is there evidence of a pattern of favorable decisions being made for those individuals?” Schweizer said. “And I think the point that we make in the book is that there is a troubling pattern. There are dozens of examples of that occurring. Some people, I think particularly the Clinton camp would say these are all coincidence.  I don’t think when you’re talking about 12 instances you’re talking coincidence. I think you’re talking trend.”

    The Clinton Foundation’s apology won’t be enough to satisfy the swelling roar of reporters, voters, and Clinton campaign donors who all want her to face these allegations head on and explain the damning appearance of favoritism and quid pro quo.

    The Clinton Foundation’s apology is that organization falling on a grenade for Hillary.

    It won’t work.

    More and more Americans find Hillary untrustworthy. This story, and Hillary ignoring the allegations driving it, won’t help that trend.

    Hillary can hope it will. But hope, unfortunately for her, won’t be enough.
