In 2013, Clinton ‘Charity’ Spent More on Office Supplies Than on Any Charity

As more and more info about the corruption of the Clintons comes out courtesy of the new book Clinton Cash, we now learn that “charity” is the farthest thing from the Clinton’s minds as they operate their “charity.”

Apparently the Clinton Foundation spent more on office supplies and rent[1] than it did on any charitable efforts.

If you take a narrower, and more realistic, view of the tax-exempt group’s expenditures by excluding obvious overhead expenses and focusing on direct grants to charities and governments, the numbers look much worse. In 2013, for example, only 10 percent of the Clinton Foundation’s expenditures were for direct charitable grants. The amount it spent on charitable grants–$8.8 million–was dwarfed by the $17.2 million it cumulatively spent on travel, rent, and office supplies. Between 2011 and 2013, the organization spent only 9.9 percent of the $252 million it collected on direct charitable grants.

While some may claim that the Clinton Foundation does its charity by itself, rather than outsourcing to other organizations in the form of grants, there appears to be little evidence of that activity in 2013. In 2008, for example, the Clinton Foundation spent nearly $100 million purchasing and distributing medicine and working with its care partners. In 2009, the organization spent $126 million on pharmaceutical and care partner expenses. By 2011, those activities were virtually non-existent. The group spent nothing on pharmaceutical expenses and only $1.2 million on care partner expenses. In 2012 and 2013, the Clinton Foundation spent $0. In just a few short years, the Clinton’s primary philanthropic project transitioned from a massive player in global pharmaceutical distribution to a bloated travel agency and conference organizing business that just happened to be tax-exempt.

It is called fraud. But we know that this whole faux charity was set up to make the Clinton crime family rich, don’t we? They don’t care about any “charity” work.

If this so-called foundation was run by anyone but the Clintons, people would be indicted and sent to jail for the fraud.
