If you have a foundation, you can use it to launder money for personal and political purposes, but you must be careful to do enough legitimate charitable activity to outweigh the corrupt aspects of your “charity.” The Clintons have a good grasp of this principle. They do lots of nice things, give money to other groups that do nice things, associate with rich and famous people who are genuine philanthropists, and so on. This way, attention is diverted from the fact that they take in questionable donations from people who obviously only want access and influence. It probably helps that the Clintons are genuinely interested in doing nice things, and not just greedy for good publicity and self-promotion. Trump needs to learn from the Clintons how to blur the line between concern for humanity and concern for oneself. For a big, important Deal Maker, he seems pretty stupid. Now he loses his foundation, along with its money laundering utility, and he opens himself up for more prosecution.
