Bill Clinton used taxpayer money to set up Hillary Clinton’s private email server

September 1, 2016

  According to this story Bill Clinton used taxpayer money to subsidize the Clinton Foundation as well as buying equipment for Hillary Clinton’s personal email server and paying somebody to it set up. Here is more:

Bill Clinton’s staff used a decades-old federal government program, originally created to keep former presidents out of the poorhouse, to subsidize his family’s foundation and an associated business, and to support his wife’s private email server, a POLITICO investigation has found.

Taxpayer cash was used to buy IT equipment — including servers — housed at the Clinton Foundation, and also to supplement the pay and benefits of several aides now at the center of the email and cash-for-access scandals dogging Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

There is apparently nothing illegal about this because:

The Act authorizes the GSA to fund the pensions, correspondence, support staff and travel of ex-presidents. It was passed in 1958 to “maintain the dignity” of the presidency by helping former commanders in chief avoid hard times like those that befell Harry S. Truman.

  While correspondence is covered it is hard to believe the Act was meant to cover official State Department business, this was not in the spirit of the law, and as the article linked above states:

it does offer fresh evidence of how the Clintons blurred the line between their nonprofit foundation, Hillary Clinton’s State Department, and the business dealings of Bill Clinton and the couple’s aides.

  I would take it one step beyond this and say there were no lines to be blurred.

  The fund was meant to keep ex-presidents from becoming indigent, but as multimillionaires who did not have to worry about this problem the Clinton’s instead used the money to help ensure Hillary Clinton’s State Department emails and the link between the Clinton Foundation could be more easily kept under wraps. This is nothing more than a big slap in the face to taxpayers and voters all across the nation.

        I think we’d all be surprised if we knew how much they accommodate for themselves, and not only them but the LOT of ‘um.

        You are probably right, we only see the tip of the iceberg.

      Sadly you are right. Nobody seems to care about how unethical she is.

    “…[Bill] buying equipment for Hillary Clinton’s personal email server and paying somebody to it set up.” My head just exploded! Her personal email server turned out to be her work email server and this a-hole pays some private guy/gal to install it?!? These two must be the most irresponsible Office Holders of all time. It just keeps getting better and better! idiots!

      It just keeps on dripping out a little at a time. I don’t see it stopping before the election but sadly about 1/2 of Americans don’t seem to care how corrupt and unethical the Clinton’s are.

        I really question the polls Steve when they show Hilly so ‘liked’, I’m not out w/ the masses but still I think it’s like the money the Fed (private elite) print, it’s not backed by anything. One thing we do know is that they’ll do whatever it takes to get what they want.

        I also don’t know what to make of the polls either at this point. Pro-Trump websites are saying the polls are close while anti-Trump websites (including conservative websites) are pointing to polls showing a Hillary blowout. They are all just trying to create the narrative at this point and I don’t think any of them are accurate at this point.

        Like ‘Standing Bear’ (Henry) says on the TV series Longmire: It is what it is.
