‘He told us that Mr. Clinton mixed and matched his personal business with that of the foundation…’
(Kaylee McGhee, Liberty Headlines) A Clinton Foundation executive mocked President Donald Trump’s charity for its ongoing legal struggles.
This past week, the Donald J. Trump Foundation agreed to close its doors and dissolve its assets after the New York attorney general’s office concluded that Trump used the charity for political gain during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Incoming state AG Letitia James also has pledged to make investigating the president and his financial assets one of her top priorities.
In response, Craig Minassian, the Clinton Foundation’s chief communications and marketing officer, tweeted a photo of the Energizer bunny and an update on the Clinton Foundation.

The Clinton Foundation, which faced some tough political scrutiny recently during a House hearing on nonprofits, also took to Twitter to share an update about its “continued work” across the globe.

However, the Clinton Foundation has legal problems of its own.
At last week’s House Oversight hearing, Republican lawmakers examined Bill and Hillary Clinton’s abuses of the charity.
Several witnesses testified that as secretary of State, Hillary intermixed personal matters with her official duties, effectively creating a “pay to play” operation that likely amounted to a slush fund for her presidential run.
“There’s no wall of separation between the Clinton Foundation and the Department of State,” Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, said. “It’s so bad that the crown prince [of Saudi Arabia] couldn’t get a meeting with Mrs. Clinton through the State Department, so he went to the Clinton Foundation.”
John Moynihan and Larry Doyle, two private investigators, also told Congress that they have documented proof of the Clinton Foundation’s corruption.
Moynihan said that during their forensic investigation of the Clinton Foundation, its chief financial officer, Andrew Kessel, admitted to them in a taped conversation that Bill Clinton used the foundation’s account for personal expenses.
“He told us that Mr. Clinton mixed and matched his personal business with that of the foundation,” Moynihan said.
