3. I'm not sure what to think about the Clinton Foundation.

I hear a lot of talk about them being involved in this or that project, but what have they gotten done relative to the donations they've taken in?

An important example is Haiti. Last I heard, they were housing victims of the Haiti earthquake in the same sort of trailers that FEMA housed Katrina victims in. Those trailers were determined to cause formaldehyde poisoning. They had problems with mold accumulation as well. What happened there? Did they take the trailers back? If so, where did they house the people after that?

Haiti was absolutely devastated and lots of donations poured in from around the world. Where is the accounting for all that money, and how far along is Haiti's reconstruction? People seem to have forgotten about the tragedy, and there hasn't been much if any reporting about the progress. I'm skeptical about the success of Haiti's building effort because I think the Clinton Foundation would let the world know about any progress in Haiti if there was indeed anything to mention.
