Speaking of the Clinton Foundation: Returns in maize and beans

  • Jon Greenberg/Politifact

A reporter for Politifact, the Pulitzer Prize-winning fact-checking organization, sent a reporter to Africa to see where money given to the Clinton Foundation has been put to work. 

The ethical and political booby traps the foundation creates for Hillary Clinton center on where the money comes from. But concerns over the source of funds exist side by side with the real gains the foundation delivers around the world.

The farming project in rural Tanzania is a window into the signature Clinton Foundation style that attracts millions of dollars in support on one end and creates market-driven opportunity on the other. To understand the foundation, you need to look at both.

Lots of details.

I remind you again I'm biased by my daughter's work on projects of this kind for the Clinton Foundation. 

So, to be fair and balanced, here's Bud Cummins, Trump's major domo in Arkansas, reacting to  the Washington Post story about the fine Trump paid for an improper foundation payment to the Florida attorney general, who decided not to open a fraud investigation of the dubious Trump University:

This story is not a freckle on butt of any chapter in Hillary's saga of intentional deception and favor selling.
Maybe Trump could invite Politifact to inspect his foundation's endeavors.
