Clinton Foundation Will Continue Accepting Cash From Foreign Governments
Champion of the middle class.
The Wall Street Journal piece is subscription only but Mary Katherine Ham of Hot Air has the details…
The board of the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation has decided to continue accepting donations from foreign governments, primarily from six countries, even though Hillary Clinton is running for president, a summary of the new policy to be released Thursday shows.
The rules would permit donations from Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway and the U.K.—countries that support or have supported Clinton Foundation programs on health, poverty and climate change, according to the summary.
That means other nations would be prohibited from making large donations to the foundation. But those governments would be allowed to participate in the Clinton Global Initiative, a subsidiary of the foundation where companies, nonprofit groups and government officials work on solutions to global problems.
So, just to recap…
The presumed nominee of the Democratic Party for 2016 has a tax-free non-profit organization which will accept large donations from foreign governments.
How is this legal?
