The Clinton Foundation said Sunday that they will not return as much as $250,000 in donations that they received from sexual predator Harvey Weinstein following the accusations of sexual harassment and rape.
Foundation spokesman Craig Minassian tweeted that donations, ranging from $100,000 to $250,000, have already been spent on projects, the Daily Mail reported.
“Suggesting @ClintonFdn return funds from our 330,000+ donors ignores the fact that donations have been used to help people across the world,” Minassian wrote on Twitter.

Minassian said that donations were used for people around the world… apparently, the people of Haiti were not the recipients, according to the Haitian man who appeared in this video interview (Video credit Milo Yiannopoulos.)
Fox News reports:
The calls to return Weinstein’s money were prompted after multiple actresses have come forward and accused the Hollywood executive of sexual assault and rape, forcing numerous politicians and organization to grapple with the dilemma.
Dozens Democratic Party politicians – including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, Sen. Sen. Al Franken, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Cory Booker – have pledged to donate their Weinstein’s contributions to charities focused on women’s rights.
Hillary Clinton echoed her former colleagues, saying she was “shocked and appalled” after the sexual harassment allegations were revealed about Weinstein, who hosted fundraisers for her in the past and donated more than $46,000 to her recent presidential campaign and other election efforts.
“What other people are saying, what my former colleagues are saying, is they’re going to donate it to charity, and of course I will do that,” she said on CNN. “I give 10% of my income to charity every year, this will be part of that. There’s no – there’s no doubt about it.”
I guess she should have spoken to Craig Minassian before she offered to donate the money back to charity.
On “Fox & Friends” this morning, former Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz said Hillary Clinton is again demonstrating why she is not the president of the United States.
“There’s no excuse for this,” Chaffetz said. “She’s arguing that she wants to lead with women and women’s issues. And then this issue comes up and she’s like, ‘No, I’m going to go ahead and keep that money.'”
