Tch. Maybe for you. While I should not disclose in public the exact
means by which I would do so (money laundering being an illegal act, after
all), I know of ways that would be rather simple - for me, having done
mostly the same thing (except entirely legal) before - and take several
months at most before 99+% of the money would be in bank accounts under my
control (the rest having been spent setting things up), from which I could
spend it on whatever I wanted.
(Although "whatever I wanted" is part of the key. I'm not one for million
dollar yachts. Many of the big spends I want would be in line with what
the accounts are supposed to be for. If I wanted a Presidential bid, I'd
arrange for the money to wind up in a PAC that I do not officially
coordinate with - though there are many
can't-legally-prove-it's-coordination signals candidates can employ.)
I believe that the Clintons are quite aware of and able to employ these
means too. Therefore, if that were their intent, it seems wasteful that
they would have used a far less efficient charitable foundation - which
suggests that was not their intent, since if it were, efficiency (winding
up with as much money as possible) would be part of the objective.
