Clinton Foundation will not accept foreign donations if Hillary wins election

Some of the major donors on The Post's list include "the governments of Saudi Arabia and Australia, the British bank Barclays, and major USA companies such as Coca-Cola and ExxonMobil".

Well, the real question here is, whether Secretary Clinton has been taking questions from reporters, which she absolutely has. Donald Trump's running mate, Mike Pence, has accused the Clintons of participating in pay-to-play politics, claiming there was a "direct connection between favors done by State Department officials and major foreign donors to the Clinton Foundation". During the period after she left the Obama administration and was mulling what to do with her life, Hillary Clinton also cleaned up on the speaker circuit, drawing fat checks from Wall Street financial houses and nonprofits alike.

"I hope I'll get permission to keep this foundation going", he told Queen Latifah on her talk show a year ago, amid a packed schedule of foundation-related events, including an overseas trip with donors.

The decision this week to wait until after the election to cut off foreign donations was criticized by some as being "too little, too late", as Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said.

The Democratic nominee has issues with her trustworthiness among voters, and stories about her email setup and the potential conflict of interest of the Clinton Foundation fit right in with that narrative. Schweizer believes that even with the new commitment, the Clintons have structured the Foundation in such a way that their affiliates in India, in Singapore, in Sweden, could accept the donations to circumvent the American roadblock.

Kremlin officials dismissed as absurd the allegations of Moscow's involvement, which were made last month amid political party nominating conventions for the November 8 election.

"CHAI is a separate legal entity from the Clinton Foundation with its own Board", Regan Lachapelle, a CHAI spokeswoman, said in an email.

Minassian did not directly answer questions about why the restrictions would be tighter than they were when Clinton was at State.

The Clinton Foundation last week accounced it would ban donations to from corporations and foreign countries if Hillary Clinton is elected. That's similar to the 45 percent of voters who were bothered by Trump's refusal to release his tax returns.

Hillary Clinton announces a new initiative between the Clinton Foundation, United Nations Foundation, and Bloomberg Philanthropies on December 15, 2014, in New York City.

So the campaign turned its attention on Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and her emails.

In recent years, the Clintons' daughter, Chelsea, has taken on a leadership role at the foundation. And he said he would step down from the board and no longer raise money for it.

If Clinton wins, imposing the new restrictions could prove awkward in some cases. Ultimately, doesn't this just encourage foreign actors to get their "donations" in early?

Though the CHAI organization is by far the largest piece of the Clinton's network, it maintains a much lower profile and has a history of failing to follow the rules set up by the related Clinton Foundation to avoid conflicts of interest while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. If questions arose, the agreement allowed for the White House to weigh in. "It must be shut down immediately, Trump said in a statement".
