2 Questions about the Clinton Foundation [View all]

1) Did the funds received by the Clinton Foundation both domestic and foreign go
100% to charity outside of operational and administrative expenses?

2) Why does my skin crawl and I think of Whitewater and Benghazi when our "liberal
media," uses terms such as "Clinton Cash?"

Thank you and grab something to eat.
