NY Post: Why Didn't the Democrats Even Mention the Clinton Foundation?

In all the Democratic convention speeches seeking to “humanize” Hillary Clinton, something went curiously missing: her work with the family charity.

You’d think Hillary, Bill and Chelsea would want to use the national stage to tout how their family’s $2 billion foundation is “helping improve the lives of millions of people across the world,” as it boasts.

You’d think we would’ve heard from some of the beneficiaries of the “partnerships between businesses, NGOs, governments and individuals” finding “solutions that last.”

But not a word that we can recall. No speeches, no videos, no personal testimonials — nothing.

The silence is hardly mystifying — for the Clinton Foundation carries heavy baggage.

Starting with the FBI’s investigation into whether any “intersection” between the foundation and the work of Secretary of State Clinton violated anti-corruption laws.

Like her role in handing Russia exclusive mining rights to 20 percent of US uranium reserves via a company that donated millions to the foundation. (You thought Donald Trump was Vladimir Putin’s best friend?)

Tying their political aspirations to the charity (even as a fund-raising entity) would open them all up to the criminal enterprise that the foundation actually is - influence peddling and bribery under the table!

I'm sure in the end there will be disappointment and frowny faces, maybe a couple of fines, but no actual criminal charges.
