Clinton: The more we learn about the Clinton Foundation the worst it looks for Hillary. With the release of Peter Schweizer’s new book “Clinton Cash” has come renewed interest into looking into the money machine that is the Clinton Foundation. The latest revelation is that the Clinton Foundation failed to disclose over 1,100 foreign donations that occurred while Hillary was Secretary of State. Since less than 10% of the Clinton Foundation budget goes to actual charity work (see here) it makes you wonder what they were actually doing with all these millions they raised from shady Russian billionaires and foreign governments.Perry: National Review’s Jim Geraghty profiles how 5 years in the US Air Force shaped the life of Rick Perry.
