Clinton Foundation Failed to Report $20M in Donations from Governments


Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton

The Clinton Foundation failed to report $20 million in donations from governments to the Internal Revenue Service, newly refiled tax returns show.

Reuters reported that the foundation disclosed the $20 million it received from governments, most of them foreign, between 2010 and 2013 when it and a spin-off organization refiled tax returns from six years to fix errors.

The Bill, Hillary, & Chelsea Clinton Foundation did not previously separate out its donations from governments on old tax returns as is mandated by the IRS.

Anti-government protesters march in central Beirut


Several hundred Lebanese protesters chanting anti-government slogans marched in central Beirut on Monday after two days of much larger rallies that descended into violence.

Security services escorted the demonstrators who were marching toward the government building. Earlier on Monday protest organizers postponed a larger protest rally until Saturday.

The “You Stink” campaign has mobilized around the government’s failure to deal with collecting trash.

Anti-Government Protesters Take to Streets Across Brazil

Called mostly by activist groups via social media, the demonstrations assailed Rousseff, whose standing in the polls has plunged amid a snowballing corruption scandal that has embroiled politicians from her Workers’ Party as well as a sputtering economy, a weakening currency and rising inflation.

But the protests drew relatively modest crowds, likely giving the president some breathing room. Huge numbers had come out for two earlier rounds of demonstrations this year.

Turnout appeared significantly lower in Sao Paulo, Brazil’s industrial and economic capital where dissatisfaction with Rousseff has run particularly high and protests in March and April drew thick crowds. The president’s supporters also staged a small counter-demonstration in front of the offices of her mentor and predecessor as president, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.

The Datafolha polling firm estimated 135,000 people demonstrated against Rousseff on Sao Paulo’s Avenida Paulista, one of the city’s largest avenues, while state police put the number at 350,000. Crowd-counting experts have long criticized Brazilian police estimates, saying they overestimate crowds by relying on photos of only the most crowded areas to estimate a gathering. Datafolha breaks the avenue up into sections and gauges density for each section.
