Clinton Foundation Fudges Donation Numbers

As the Washington Free Beacon [1] pointed out:

“Florida trial lawyer Ira Leesfield will host Clinton at his home in Miami’s posh Coconut Grove neighborhood for a fundraiser next week, Politico reports [2]. He is the latest in a long line of Clinton Foundation donors to financially support the former secretary of state’s presidential bid.”

“Leesfield has donated [3] between $250,000 and $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation, according to its website. His group, the Leesfield Family Charitable Foundation, is also a minor donor, the website says [4], having given $1,000 to $5,000.”

“However, documents filed with the Internal Revenue Service show that the Leesfield Foundation’s support is far higher than Clinton Foundation donor disclosures claim. In 2013 alone [5], Leesfield’s group gave the Foundation $75,000. It gave at least [6] $200,000 [7] from [8] 2006 [9] to [10] 2013 [11], those filings reveal.”
