What with the 24/7 media obsession over Donald Trump’s taxes, you think this might be bigger news.
Clinton Foundation officials quietly refiled three years of tax-related forms this week after the New York attorney general acknowledged the charity had failed to disclose all of its donors in accordance with state law.
Two entities operating within the Clintons’ sprawling philanthropic network — the Clinton Health Access Initiative and the Clinton Global Initiative — submitted supplementary financial disclosures for different years between 2012 and 2014 while denying Tuesday that the attorney general’s office had asked them to do so.
So the state attorney general, a Clinton hack, goes after the Trump Foundation, but goes ahead and recommends the Clinton Crime Family refile theirs. Hmm. Seems just a bit shady, no?
Donald Trump’s eponymous foundation was issued a cease-and-desist letter Monday from the New York attorney general’s office over the charity’s failure to register under that same statute.
But the Clinton Foundation has logged its own financial inconsistencies over the past several years. In November of last year, the Clinton Health Access Initiative re-submitted several years of tax returns after reporters identified millions of dollars in foreign contributions that had been omitted from its disclosures.
Eric Schneiderman, the New York attorney general, is a Hillary Clinton campaign donor and vocal supporter. Critics have accused his office of coming down harshly on the Trump Foundation while offering leniancy to the Clinton Foundation.
Move along, nothing to see here.
