The Clinton Crime Syndicate…uh…”Foundation” is set to refile at least 5 years of tax returns after Reuters caught them (brace yourself) lying to the tune of millions of dollars over three years about how much money they took in from foreign entities.
We’re not talking about moving a decimal point or screwing up a little math, here, either. The crooked Clinton crew reported tens of millions of dollars from foreigners on their federal filings and then suddenly reported nothing in 2010, 2011 and 2012 while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State and the foreign money kept pouring in. That’s a tough “error” to make.
This is the work of the woman who wants to “topple the 1%,” right? Right! What percent are you when you don’t notice you’re lying to the IRS about tens of millions of dollars a year?
Apparently no one at the IRS caught on to foreign donations on the Clinton Syndicate’s 990 forms going from $20,000,000 or something each year for a bunch of years down to $0 the next three years. They were too busy persecuting their political foes.
The unsettled numbers on the tax returns are not evidence of wrongdoing but tend to undermine the 990s role as a form of public accountability, experts in charity law and transparency advocates interview told Reuters.
“Unsettled numbers.” Try using that one next time you get a call from the IRS about your $200 home office deduction.
For three years in a row beginning in 2010, the Clinton Foundation reported to the IRS that it received zero in funds from foreign and U.S. governments, a dramatic fall-off from the tens of millions of dollars in foreign government contributions reported in preceding years.
[Foundation spokesman Craig] Minassian declined to comment on why the foundation had not included the necessary break-down of government funding in its 990 forms. He said it was rare to find an organization as transparent as the foundation.
We’re so transparent that we don’t include “the necessary break-down of government funding” on our public filings. It all depends on what your definition of “transparent” is. God, I miss the 90s!
