They’re back! (Will they ever really go away!)
The Clinton Foundation went dark for a while, what with all the allegations (the FBI and federal prosecutors in January began investigating whether donors were illegally promised policy favors from Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state in exchange for dumping cash into the “charity.” The probe, as usual, has so far gone nowhere).
And why would a lil’ ol’ federal investigation put a damper on the parties thrown by the billion-dollar “charity,” anyway?
The Clintons hosted a mega-bash at a secret New York venue on Thursday, charging attendees $100,000-a-table for a “star-studded gala designed to relaunch their troubled family charity,” the Daily Mail writes.
Sting and Shaggy performed together on stage, Jon Bon Jovi introduced Bill and the audience included millionaires and Hillary super-fans who got in line for selfies.
On offer at a post-dinner auction was a trip to the Caribbean with Bill — or chardonnay with Hillary.
It was an echo of the charity’s golden years, before an intense focus on it during Hillary’s losing run for the presidency, and now an active FBI investigation into whether it was part of a pay-to-play scheme while she was secretary of state, made it a lightning rod for controversy.
But Bill, Hillary and Chelsea were defiant as they fronted the event, with Hillary telling attendees: ‘You being here is really heartening to me.’
There were signs of the headwinds the trio face however, with the New York venue which hosted the event not being publicly disclosed, and no sign of photographs or videos of the celebrations on the three Clintons’ social media accounts.
“Savor a rare opportunity to enjoy a glass of wine with one of the most admired and respected women in the world,” said the program. More like a few bottles.
Or “attendees could bid to join Bill on a Clinton Foundation trip to the Caribbean, touring what it said were ‘sustainable energy’ projects in the islands, and visit Puerto Rico to see reconstruction efforts after last year’s devastating hurricane,” the program said.
Now that’s a weird “prize” to offer, given the allegations that Clinton used to hang out on “Orgy Island,” an estate on Jeffrey Epstein’s 72-acre island, called Little St. James, in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
“Former President Bill Clinton was a much more frequent flyer on a registered sex offender’s infamous jet than previously reported, with flight logs showing the former president taking at least 26 trips aboard the “Lolita Express” — even apparently ditching his Secret Service detail for at least five of the flights, according to records obtained by FoxNews.com.”
“Clinton’s presence aboard Jeffrey Epstein’s Boeing 727 on 11 occasions has been reported, but flight logs show the number is more than double that, and trips between 2001 and 2003 included extended junkets around the world with Epstein and fellow passengers identified on manifests by their initials or first names, including “Tatiana.” The tricked-out jet earned its Nabakov-inspired nickname because it was reportedly outfitted with a bed where passengers had group sex with young girls,” Fox News reported in 2016.
We’re speaking just for ourselves here, but we don’t want to have wine with Hillary or go anywhere with Bill. Ever.
