Ethics Go Out the Door as Clinton Foundation Accepts Foreign Funds
When Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State under President Obama, she and husband Bill decided it would be best if the Clinton Foundation rejected financial gifts from foreign countries. Now, it appears they have lifted that sensible ban.
Instead of publicly announcing the decision, the Clintons accepted these outside gifts quietly. It was up to the Wall Street Journal to do a bit of digging to break the news.
Among the Clintons’ new donors are the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Australia, Germany and Canada's Foreign Affairs, Trade, and Development, which openly promotes the Keystone XL pipeline.
Another donation that could raise eyebrows comes from the Qatari government committee preparing to host the 2022 soccer World Cup, which gave between $250,000 and $500,000 last year. Human rights groups have claimed that over 1,000 migrant workers have died in the process of constructing the infrastructure to host the tournament.
