HILLARY RESPONSE to AP BOMBSHELL: Claims emails linking Foundation with State Dept. 'a lot of smoke,' but 'no fire',…Okay start Laughing

It was all a coincidence that more than half of the people who hooked up with Hillary at the State department just happened to write million dollar checks to the Clinton Foundation. 
I was just a coincidence that favors got done in one way or another.  No pay to play here.  Nothing unethical ever occurred while Hillary was secretary of state.  Yes, that’s the ticket!    

Fox News reports Hillary Clinton defended her family's charitable foundation on Wednesday against criticism from Donald Trump, saying it had provided more transparency than her Republican rival's sprawling business interests.

Clinton called into CNN's "AC360" to address Trump's suggestions that the foundation started by her husband, former President Bill Clinton, had been used to facilitate a pay-for-play scheme during her time at the State Department.

"What Trump has said is ridiculous. My work as secretary of state was not influenced by any outside forces. I made policies based on what I thought was right," Clinton said. She said the foundation had provided "life-saving work," adding that neither she nor her husband had ever drawn a salary from the charity.

"You know more about the foundation than you know about anything concerning Donald Trump's wealth, his business, his tax returns," Clinton said.

The phone interview came as her top campaign officials and allies are playing defense, arguing that the foundation has helped millions of people around the globe while Trump's business interests carry their own blind spots.

Before her interview, Clinton had largely ignored Trump's criticism of the foundation, with campaign officials figuring her late-summer advantage gives her few incentives to personally push back against the email criticism or allegations of pay-for-play.

As far as the millions collected by the Clinton Foundation for the good works Hillary mentioned in her defense.  A published report said in 2013 only 10% of the foundations budget was spent on charity.  The rest was spent on “administrative costs”.  And remember when Hillary said she was dead broke when they left the White House?  The Clintons are reportedly worth 150 million dollars at least.  How?  Take a good guess.
