Did Foreign Governments Buy Influence With Hillary?
Hillary Clinton may be too mired in international connections to be an unbiased president – or hold any other public office for that matter. While the Clintons couldn’t accept donations from foreign governments to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary was secretary of state, it didn’t stop politicians in high positions in the Ukrainian, Chinese and Saudi Arabian governments from giving millions. The Wall Street Journal reports, “All told, more than a dozen foreign individuals and their foundations and companies were large donors to the Clinton Foundation in the years after Mrs. Clinton became secretary of state in 2009, collectively giving between $34 million and $68 million, foundation records show. Some donors also provided funding directly to charitable projects sponsored by the foundation, valued by the organization at $60 million.” While every donor WSJ spoke with claimed they were only giving to a charity they believed in, they also had the potential to buy Clinton’s attention. The Clintons certainly know how to play this shadowy political game, as Hillary just happened to stall on disclosing the donors to her charity.
