In reporting on Hillary Clinton's release of her tax returns, an anonymously written Aug. 12 WorldNetDaily article goes straight for the conspiracy angle:
It’s also still unclear which fees were pocketed by the Clintons as income and which were designated as funds going to charity through the Clinton Foundation.
The 2015 tax return showed the Clintons deducted $1,042,000 in charitable contributions last year — with $1 million going to the Clinton Foundation.
The just released documentary “Clinton Cash,” based on a book by Peter Schweizer, explains how the Clintons make big money by selling access to themselves and use “speaking fees” to get around bribery laws.
The Clintons have been eluding deserved criminal charges in connection to the Clinton Foundation for years, according to the author of the explosive new book “Partners in Crime: The Clintons’ Scheme to Monetize the White House for Personal Profit.”
“I wrote ‘Partners in Crime’ because it became clear to me that the Clinton Foundation is a criminal operation,” Jerome Corsi, a WND senior staff writer and New York Times best-selling author, said in an interview. “It’s set up like a charity, so it defrauds people all over the world to think that they’re contributing to a good cause.”
Just one little problem: That has nothing to do with Hillary's tax returns. As Media Matters points out, those charitable contributions went not to the Clinton Foundation that WND and other conservatives have been targeting throughout the election but, rather, to the Clinton Family Foundation, a completely separate entity that's a clearinghouse for the Clinton family's personal philanthropy.
The fact that WND can't tell the two foundations apart is just another reason it's unlikely to regain the credibilty it's squandered anytime soon.
