Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Clinton Donors Rewarded with Africa Safari with Bill and Chelsea, All Paid for by Clinton Foundation

Think of it as a loyalty program; the more you spend, the more you get. Meanwhile, the “charity” that is the Clinton Foundation continues to spend money on itself.

Bill Clinton and first daughter Chelsea left earlier this week on a nine-day luxe tour through Africa with a plane-full of foundation donors and Hillary supporters. While foundation aides note their many initiatives in Africa, the trip comes amid the growing controversy over donations to the Clinton family’s foundation. And…

“If hopping on a private jet so you can go on safari with a bunch of rich celebrities now counts as charity work, then the Kardashian sisters should probably be eligible for sainthood,” said Sean Davis, co-founder of the online magazine, The Federalist.

The Clintons have brought along to Africa 20 close allies, including donors who have given hundreds of thousands of dollars — and in some cases millions of dollars — to family foundation entities. There also are major Hillary Clinton backers aboard.

Those touring with the Clintons include:

— Jay and Mindy Jacobs, political fundraisers for Hillary’s presidential campaign who donated $5,000 to the Ready for Hillary super PAC. They also contributed as much as $1 million to the Clinton Foundation.

— Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a billionaire listed in the category of foundation donors who contributed $100,000 to $250,000; she also backed Hillary Clinton in 2008 with a $3,500 contribution and was a major fundraiser. She is chief executive officer of E.L. Rothschild, a company that manages investments in The Economist Group, and owns The Economist magazine, Congressional Quarterly and the Economist Intelligence Unit.

— Liz Robbins, of the Washington, D.C. lobbying firm Liz Robbins Associates, and Marcy Simon, a marketing expert, who donated between $10,000 and $25,000 each to the foundation and are expected to help Hillary Clinton in her bid for president.

— Beverly Dale, a foundation supporter, who donated to Hillary Clinton’s previous White House campaign.

— John and Rebecca Mackay, who donated $5 million to the foundation. The Mackays made news when their donation was announced at Bill Clinton’s 60th birthday party in Toronto, where they were among 500 guests who donated as much as $200,000 per table to dine with the Clintons on lobster tails, beef tenderloin and cupcakes.

— Another member of the delegation to Africa is Hadeel Ibrahim, a Clinton Foundation board member. Ibrahim is a friend of Chelsea Clinton. Her family foundation donated between $250,000 and $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation. Chelsea Clinton and Ibrahim co-chair on the Board of Trustees for The Africa Center in New York City.

— Dropbox founder Andrew Houston, who has donated between $250,000 and $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation; and his CFO Sujay Jaswa, who contributed between $25,000 and $50,000 to the Clinton Foundation.

Craig Minassian, spokesman for the Clinton Foundation, told reporters on an April 23 conference call that the trip to Africa has nothing to do with politics. “The point of the trip is to see our work, so it has nothing to do with the campaign. It’s really to see the work, highlight the work, make sure it’s going well, so that’s the point of the trip.”
