Hillary Clinton likes to portray herself as an enemy of Wall Street, but the Street’s real enemies are coming back to haunt her. While Hillary Clinton was banking millions in speaking fees from the financial industry, Wall Street analyst Charles Ortel was making news for uncovering years of accounting fraud at General Electric.
Now he’s turned his attention to the Clinton Foundation, and he’s convinced something similar is going on.
As the Washington Free Beacon reports: Ortel said he has spent the past 15 months digging into the Clinton Foundation’s public records, federal and state-level tax filings, and donor disclosures. That includes records from the foundation’s many offshoots—including the Clinton Health Access Initiative and the Clinton Global Initiative—as well as its foreign subsidiaries.
According to Ortel’s reports, the contribution disclosures from the Clinton Foundation don’t match up with individual donors’ records. He also argued that the foundation is not in compliance with some state laws regarding fundraising registration, disclosure requirements, and auditing rules.
