Against the Law and the Constitution, Hillary Clinton Took Lavish Donations Bribes to Her "Foundation"

In case you were wondering, "How is it legal that the Clintons can take half a billion in donations bribes, almost a hundred of million of which are from foreign governments?," the answer turns out to be "It's totally not legal."

Now, the one exception to the Emoluments Clause is that the executive can review the bribe -- let's not pretend this is not a bribe, okay? -- and okay it. Earlier the State Department indicated that it had cleared Hillary Clinton's foreign bribes as "Obama-approved foreign bribery."

But now, via @JohnEkdahl, the State Department is retracting previous claims that it gave a Good Bribe seal of approval to Hillary Clinton's hundred million in foreign bribes.

>The State Department is stepping back from a spokeswoman's comment last week suggesting that the agency's ethics lawyers signed off on donations to the Clinton Foundation during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.

Asked at a daily briefing Thursday about the foundation's failure to submit a $500,000 donation from the country of Algeria for a conflict of interest review in 2010, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters that the department did such reviews whenever the non-profit founded by former President Bill Clinton sent in information about a potential gift.

"We like to review -- and we have reviewed every donation that was submitted," Psaki said.

However, there are no indications any Clinton Foundation donations were ever sent to the State Department for approval.

Asked about Psaki’s comment, another State Department spokesperson said Monday that the reviews the agency did were of paid speeches Bill Clinton was proposing to make and business deals he wanted to enter into. From 2009 to 2012, hundreds of speech requests and a handful of consulting deals were sent to State Department lawyers for sign off. The vast majority were approved.

"We received requests regarding speeches and consultancies of former President Clinton," State spokesman Alec Gerlach said.

Clarifying Psaki's earlier comment, Gerlach said that State Department reviewed every request that came in, not every donation.

What a shock -- Jen Psaki is at the center of a snafu involving poor messaging and mental retardation.

That video is from Italy, actually. There's now a manhunt on for that cretin.

And yet Jen Psaki walks free.

More Shocks! Hillary Clinton, who is, by the way, a scumbag, illegally used her private email to conduct official business, for reasons, of course, of hiding what should be discoverable public records from the public.

Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, State Department officials said, and may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record.

Mrs. Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. Her aides took no actions to have her personal emails preserved on department servers at the time, as required by the Federal Records Act.

It was only two months ago, in response to a new State Department effort to comply with federal record-keeping practices, that Mrs. Clinton’s advisers reviewed tens of thousands of pages of her personal emails and decided which ones to turn over to the State Department. All told, 55,000 pages of emails were given to the department.Mrs. Clinton stepped down from the secretary’s post in early 2013.

Her expansive use of the private account was alarming to current and former National Archives and Records Administration officials and government watchdogs, who called it a serious breach.
