Increase in foreign donations to Clinton Foundation raises ethical questions for possible Hillary 2016 bid

by
February 18, 2015

HillaryThe Clinton Foundation reportedly is seeing an increase in contributions from foreign governments after ending a self-imposed ban on such donations, raising new ethical questions as Hillary Clinton prepares for a possible 2016 presidential campaign.

According to The Wall Street Journal, which cited the foundation’s online database, recent donors to the foundation include the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Saudi Arabia, Oman, Australia, Germany, and a Canadian government agency promoting construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.

The foundation instituted a foreign gifts ban in 2009 after Hilllary Clinton was named Secretary of State by President Barack Obama. The Journal reports that the ban was not a total one, and some donations were permitted after receiving the approval of State Department ethics officials. Hillary Clinton re-joined the foundation after leaving the State Department in 2013 and has fronted a $250 million endowment campaign.

    How wrong is this? Why would rich foreigners be buying…uh investing their money in America’s political candidates and their votes? Scary stuff. Scary but not surprising for this anti-american, anti-christian candidate.

  • Buford says:

    We know whose interests she represents, and we know that, even as now, it will not be our interests..

      Didnt newsmax that extreme right wing conservative group also contribute. Please recognize the sarcasm.

  • calhar says:

    Its perfectly clear that these countries are trying to rig our presidency in this country in the name of Islam,and this dumb bitch and cohorts is falling into their hands.This crud aren’t Americans.

  • Voltair says:

    Hilary has always operated outside of the law and has always gotten a pass….nothing new here!

    1. IllBeYour Huckleberry says:

      Didnt Obama do the same. Im pretty sure someone was said to have donated via the middle east under Bin Ladins name. Its a liberal thing as laws and ethics are for everyone else.

      1. Voltair says:

        If that is not true it should be….

  • usncb says:

    I am curious, Is this legal ? Then again does it matter? Crooks begets crooks. If there is a law, lets break it, no one cares.

    1. bobnstuff says:

      Yes it’s 100% legal, it’s going to a non profit foundation. It’s not a campaign donation.

      1. usncb says:

        A non profit foundation run by whom ?? the $$$ JUST might find its way to hitleries campaign fund. Strange how things happen to the Clintons that they no nothing about, strange indeed.

    2. calhar says:

      usncb:Yes it does matter,This so called charity Foundation is nothing more than a front for influencing certain individuals of world government under the disguise of “non profit”I would venture to say that not one person can say where the money goes except the recipients.This is corruption at its worst.But then most don’t know the difference.Dam fools>>>>>>>>>

      America has been in a lawless flux maintained by the rich and powerful, while tyranny is the norm for citizens, especially Christians and patriots, since obama took office.

  • Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

    LMAO how ridiculous is it to mix the Foundation with the campaign committee even though yes a Tea Potty candidate might try something as ridiculous. Rand Paul quickly came to mind

    1. John Wesson says:

      I’m betting you have just been waiting for the opportunity to use that line. But transferring guilt is probably one of your tools like most other lids. It will be entertaining to see the next president blaming everything on Obama. What goes around, comes around.

      1. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

        Do you even realize? You are pissing and moaning about the left complaining about George W. by complaining about Bill Clinton? Really? As for waiting to use a line nope you morons make it so easy I do not need to focus on anything specific I just wait till one of you inserts their foot in their mouth and let my fingers go to work. OH and not as a correction because I think room monitors on here complaining about grammar and spelling are idiots but your finger may have moved a shade too quickly. What are lids?

    2. IllBeYour Huckleberry says:

      No more ridiculous than someone under the name of Bin Ladin donating to obama campaign from the middle east or a poor collage of a birth certificate being posted at whitehouse.gov. When liberals are involved ridiculous is the norm.

      1. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

        Nice try asshat but I am not biting! You Tea Potty Christian Conservative Republicans have pulled this one once too many times. Just like Ronnie putting his hand up to his ear pretending he didn’t hear something he could not answer you try to switch the topic when you can’t respond to the remark I made. Sorry Charlie I do not give idiots any of my time but I gave you just sufficient to see how ridiculous you truly are. Ciao

        1. IllBeYour Huckleberry says:

          Insult hardly prove your point any better than your first attempt. Perhaps if you pulled your head out of your… I remember you troll and you have been served more than a few times already.

          1. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

            The dumbest moron on here would be the one that decides they will judge who has been served and who hasn’t

          2. IllBeYour Huckleberry says:

            just a typical trolling liberal with little more than insults since his point and opinion have absolutely no validity or value. Perhaps you should return to your liberal sites and soak up some anti Christian articles that are hardly investigative journalism.

          3. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

            Exactly as I said the dumbest on here will judge. Thank you for stepping up !!!!

          4. IllBeYour Huckleberry says:

            No, thank you for stepping up since you are the one judging another as being the dumbest on here. Not only are you pointing out how stupid you really are. You stink of liberal hypocrisy and can do little better than child like insults. You even served yourself. See I even give you plenty of credit. GJ
