From what I can tell there's nothing proving the funds went to anyone's wedding. I did hear about the Clintons mishandling the funds they supposedly raised for Haiti though so if that's true idk why anyone would really care how exactly they misused it. Seems like proving you used the money like you pronised should probably be higher on the priority list than saying that it didn't go to one specific thing in particular.

From what I remember the Haiti relief effort was pretty much a disaster. A huge amount of money pumped into a decimated region without proper oversight or planning. It's extremely optimistic to think there was no corruption in the middle of all that. Whether or not the Clintons are culpable is uncertain, but there hasn't been any evidence to support it, and you know people have looked.

when I saw someone retweet that Clinton thing I couldn't help but put my grammar radar on, for him being a president I guess even he isn't immune to grammar issues. too many "ands" in the last part of the sentence. but, regardless, it is true, Haiti did pay for the wedding, including many other aspects. a "donation" is still a paying of the way, including all the other dirty money which has filtered into the Clinton foundation over the years. on a side note where did all that money disappear to? oh wait the wedding! and now we know... well that and other dark Clinton things, such as paying off people to keep their mouths shut/look the other way, etc etc. https://www.usapoliticstoday.org/chelsea-clinton-wedding-funds/ looks like Clinton still can't get ahead from lying, talk about dishonest. charismatic is not a reason to vote folks...

I can proudly say the first time I saw Wikileaks dump anything was the video that Chelsea Manning leaked which was trumped up as hell.

From that point forward, I never took anything they ever said seriously ever again.

You'd be a fool to believe anything these folks say.

Even back then, the name of their organization confused me. I thought a Wiki was supposed to be an open to edit kind of place. I guess it doesn't necessarily mean that, and I'm only getting that from impression from Wikipedia, but christ, they have been a spin organization since day one. They sit on the leaks that people give them. Imagine risking everything to leak something to these guys and they sit on it for years waiting for a good moment to create some kind of dialog for it instead of, you know, leaking it.

Only reason why people take them so seriously now is they went from shitting on Republicans to shitting on Democrats.

I really don't think the disaster relief being shit is cause for suspicion of corruption in and of itself. Lots of relief efforts by numerous groups have also been spectacular failures. That's not to say there haven't been any great operations in this field, because there absolutely have, but when it comes to something as difficult as this you can easily fuck it up royally without ulterior motives.

if you donated for something using your credit card and it turned out to be some scam later. Can you get a refund or dispute the charge with the credit card company?

You'd need actual proof it's a scam first.

are you talking about donating to the Clinton Foundation ? it's a maybe. .. but most donation contributions are as is pretty much

There were some horrible Kickstarter and the money are gone for good so... be very careful of who you will donate to. I know people usually jump on the bandwagon with donations when they saw something on the news.but .. stop and think

how many cents of your $1 will be going to straight to the victims vs administrators costs ? I would avoid any organizaiton or foundation started by some politician let along the Clintons

You people have a creepy obsession with defaming someone whose political career is mostly ruined enough.
How far and how long does it have to drag out like a dead horse’s entrails before someone finally puts their foot down and says “she’s finished, shut the fuck up”?

Well, yeah, but that's politics. People think that witch hunts confirm their misplaced beliefs. Better yet they look for witch hunts to confirm their beliefs.

It’s not like I actually like her, but witchhunt culture is honestly fucking wretched, especially when the so called witch has been burned to a crisp already. “Ooh yeah, let’s only further throw fuel into the fire! Oh wait, she’s already a pile of ashes? Well, I don’t give a fuck!”

The thing is that Trump was elected on the platform of destroying all the groups responsible for his voters' hardships; the Deep State, the Mexicans, etc. Hilary, to Trump supporters, is a symbol of the deep state and the elites that run it. So if there's no follow through after all the noise about locking her up and such, it will put a big hole in their narrative. Trump, for the most part, seems to be alternating between blaming Sessions and not having any interest.
