Republicans Begin Looking Into ‘Pay For Play’ Allegations At The Clinton Foundation

Republicans probably should have started doing this much sooner but better late than never. Now that Hillary and Bill have no influence to sell, the foundation has become a shell of its former self.

Republicans examine accusations of ‘pay to play’ at Clinton Foundation, amid plunge in donations

Republicans on the House Oversight Committee on Thursday examined accusations of “pay to play” at the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, as Democrats dismissed the Capitol Hill hearing as a partisan exercise.

North Carolina GOP Rep. Mark Meadows, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee on Government Operations, opened Thursday’s hearing by expressing concern over recently reported tax documents showing donations to the Clinton Foundation plunged in the wake of Hillary Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

The filings showed that the foundation took in $26.6 million in 2017, a 58 percent drop from the $62.9 million it received the previous year.

“Now several reports suggest that the decrease in donations could reflect a ‘pay to play’ activity in the years prior to the decline in donations,” Meadows said.

The Clinton Foundation has repeatedly denied all allegations of “pay to play.”

There’s a very simple question that needs to be asked here. If the Clintons weren’t selling influence, why did donations drop off so dramatically after she lost the election?
