Now that Hillary and Bill Clinton have taken all those restorative walks in the woods and rested up from her bruising 2016 presidential campaign, you’d think they’d be putting things in order at the family foundation (the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation) to comply fully with U.S. and international law—especially since then-candidate Donald Trump had practically put a prosecutorial bounty on their heads for using the foundation as a pay-to-play political operation.

Within his first 100 days in office, President Donald Trump has accomplished what no other president has: He committed an act of war by bombing one country (Syria), dispatched an “armada” in preparation for possible war with another (North Korea, and threatened a superpower (Russia) with wartime sanctions for continuing to support an “enemy” country (Syria). The president has a …
