Howard Bowles' Victorian Legal Services Board was a little too keen to direct attention away from Julia Gillard, you think?

Will IRS investigate Australia’s donations to Clinton Foundation?

Will IRS investigate Australia’s donations to Clinton Foundation?

IRS investigators should dig into the millions of dollars of unresolved reporting disparities on exactly how much money Australian government agencies shoveled into the Clinton Foundation, Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee tells The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Clinton Foundation listings include contributions from the Commonwealth of Australia and the Australian Agency for International Development in a range between totals of $20 million and $50 million. The foundation does not provide the date of the contributions.

Even with the highest number — $50 million — in the range, however, there is a disparity of as much as $39 million with reports from the Australian government. Using the foundation’s lowest number of $20 million, the disparity could be as much as $68 million.

A September 22, 2014, statement by Australian Minister of Foreign Affairs Julie Bishop said that “since 2006, Australia has contributed $88 million to [the Clinton Health Access Initiative] and its sister organization, the Clinton Foundation.”The $88 million figure Bishop claimed was contradicted earlier this week when Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade released documents under that nation’s Freedom of Information laws. The documents included a listing of 11 separate grants to the Clinton Foundation, its HIV/AIDS, CHAI and a “China Clinton Foundation” that totaled almost $71 million.

The disparity prompted Blackburn, vice-chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, to tell TheDCNF that “reports have shown that the Clinton Foundation has failed to accurately report tens of millions of dollars in foreign government grants, including some while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.”

Blackburn said she first raised the issue with the IRS in a May 2015 letter to the federal tax agency’s chief, John Koskinen. Earlier this week, Koskinen told Blackburn that he had asked the IRS exempt organizations division to determine whether the Clinton Foundation uses a “pay-to-play” strategy in its operations.

Koskinen was responding to a July 15, 2016, letter carrying the signatures of Blackburn and 64 other Republican members of the House of Representatives.“This should be troubling to all Americans as it gives the appearance that there could be a pay-to-play arrangement between the Clintons and foreign governments while the interests of the American people were pushed aside. The tax-exempt status of the foundation should be reviewed immediately,” Blackburn told TheDCNF.

A variety of factors complicate resolving disparities, including the lack of precise dates and amounts in the Foundation’s published donor tallies, the variability in the official exchange rate between U.S. and Australian currency and uncertainty about the reliability of the foundation’s tax returns and consolidated financial statements.Further complicating efforts to resolve multi-million dollar disparities is the foundation’s longstanding failure to observe ‘good governance’ practices recommended by non-profit experts.A related issue concerns whether the Clinton Foundation complied with longstanding tax rules that require an exempt non-profit to get prior approval from the IRS for changes in its charitable purpose. The foundation was granted IRS exemption for the purpose of building and operating former President Bill Clinton’s presidential library in Arkansas.

Charles Oretel, a non-profit accounting expert, contends the foundation lacks IRS approval for overseas activities.

“The Clinton Foundation provides no credible evidence on its website (principle interface w the public) that it lawfully obtained clearance from the IRS to pursue international activities of any kind,” Oretel told TheDCNF.

“It also provides no consistent evidence concerning the extent of its foreign operations, or the financial consequences of these activities.

“Regarding Australia, the Clinton Foundation does not explain how much money it sourced from the Australian government, how it spent these sums, whether it registered lawfully to solicit inside Australia, and whether it registered in nations including China, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Papua New Guinea, to deploy donations from Australia and other donors in these places.”

A spokesman for the Clinton Foundation did not respond to a request for comment by TheDCNF.

Why have we donated to Clinton's Foundation?
Andrew Bolt, Herald Sun
October 31, 2016 7:24am

Why have Australian governments tipped money into Hillary Clinton's Clinton Foundation? That it gave Julia Gillard a job and effectively a platform to now spruik Hillary Clinton for president shows just how this very dodgy Foundation works.

Miranda Devine:

The Australian taxpayer shovelled at least $88 million into the Clinton Foundation and associated entities from 2006 to 2014, reaching a peak of $10.3 million in 2012-13, Gillard’s last year in office.

On the Clinton Foundation website, AusAID and the Commonwealth of Australia score separate entries in the $10 million-plus group of donors, one rung up from American teacher unions.

In 2009-10 Kevin Rudd handed over another $10 million to the foundation for climate research, part of $300 million he squandered on a Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute.

Gillard also donated $300 million of our money to the Clinton-affiliated Global Partnership for Education.

Lo and behold, she became chairman in 2014 and has been ­actively promoting Clinton as president ever since — in a campaign video last December slamming Trump, in opeds trumpeting the next woman president and in appearances with Clinton spruiking girls’ education.

The Abbott government topped up the left-wing organisation’s coffers with another $140 million in 2014, bringing total Australian largesse to $460 million, according to a press release from Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.

I am a self-educated constitutionalist who successfully representing myself on 19 July 2006 comprehensive defeated the Commonwealth on constitutional grounds that compulsory voting was unconstitutional. This because I am not promoting nonsense of any legal studies, politicians or the judiciary.


With the monies paid to the Clinton foundation and others it appears to me that each and every payment had to be authorized by a special Appropriation Bill and only for so far it could be used for public purposes that is for Australians.


Hansard 8-3-1898 Constitution Convention Debates


QUOTE


Mr. ISAACS.-I should hope that the expenditure caused by a bush fire would not be part of an annual service.


Mr. MCMILLAN.-Would it not into the Appropriation Bill?


Mr. ISAACS.-Yes; but not as an annual service.


Mr. MCMILLAN.-The annual services of the Government are those which we distinguish from special grants and from loan services. The difficulty is that we have got rid of the phraseology to which we are accustomed, and instead of the words Appropriation Bill, we are using the word law.


Mr. ISAACS.-A difficulty arises in connexion with the honorable members proposal to place expenditure incurred for bush fires in the ordinary, it would not be annual, and it would not be a service.


END QUOTE



Therefore, if the donations/payments, etc, to some foreign entity was not part of annual services a special Appropriation b ill would be needed for teach and every time monies were paid out.


No such thing as ‘AusAID’ and/or ‘Clinton-affiliated Global Partnership for Education’ and/or whomever else getting monies that are not even part of an annual cost to a Department. Therefore, I view that the AFP (Australian Federal Police) should investigate matters and have those involved charged with defrauding the Commonwealth of Australia (so us taxpayers) and held legally liable?


Likewise so why did the Commonwealth Auditor-General not investigate these issues?


See for the balance of this post (too long to post) at my blog.

I interview Charles Ortel - FBI investigation and Australia's involvement in the Clinton Frauds
Monday, 31 October 2016

This is very very bad news for Rudd, Gillard et al.

Very bad indeed.

Charles Ortel is the Wall Street analyst who blew the whistle on GE. He is widely regarded as the man who has caused the current FBI investigation into the Clinton corruption and frauds. Their friends will be caught in that net. Many here in Australia.

Charles explained why to me today.
