With “Bill and Hill.” we are dealing with recidivist perjurers who will not be topped by mere mortals.
If the Clinton name is on it, then it must smell like bovine excrement.
The entire family, apparently Chelsea included is made up of liars and frauds.
The mere fact that they don’t separate travel expenses for the foundation from travel that is purely political would indicate that the IRS has a blind eye.

Travel expenses for the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation for last year totaled more than $8 million, a greater amount than the nonprofit reported in previous years, according to Internal Revenue Service filings.
The filings, provided to POLITICO by the Republican research arm America Rising, are the first look at the foundation’s expenditures since it changed its name last year and was joined by Hillary Clinton after she left the State Department.
The travel costs were $8.448 million, according to the 990 forms the foundation filed with the IRS. America Rising obtained a copy at the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Ark. That figure was about 5 percent of the more than the $145 million the Clinton Foundation raised last year, but 10 percent of its expenses.
In notes in the filing, foundation officials referred to specific travel requirements for the three Clinton’s.
“The Board recognizes that, due to extraordinary security and other requirements, William J. Clinton, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Chelsea Clinton may require the need to travel by charter or in first class, the determination of which will be made on a case-by-case basis,” it says. All three Clintons had not been members of the board in previous years.
The travel expenses were nearly double the total in previous years. The filing indicates that the increase was related to the Clinton Global Initiative, which was spun off as a separate entity during the four years Hillary Clinton was secretary of state to avoid conflicts of interest, then reincorporated last year into the Foundation.
But the filings come at a time when both Bill and Hillary Clinton have been under scrutiny for their exclusive travel, particularly Hillary Clinton. The bill for political campaigns to pay for the Clintons’ travel during the fall midterm season is likely to top $1 million.
Critics at America Rising argued the Foundation officials should break out an itemized list of the travel to determine whether any of Hillary Clinton’s was related to politics.
“At the Clinton Foundation, it’s unclear the line between ‘charity’ and multi-million dollar political organization funneling money to subsidize the Clintons’ private political air travel and courting of prospective presidential campaign donors,” group official Tim Miller said.
