Clinton Foundation defends fundraising practices

The charity founded by former President Bill Clinton defended its financial support from foreign governments and said it would continue “appropriate” policies and practices if former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton runs for president again. The foundation run by the Clintons and their daughter, Chelsea Clinton, has come under scrutiny for its practices of raising money from

foreign governments as Hillary Clinton considers a presidential campaign in 2016. The Wall Street Journal reported the foundation received money in 2014 from the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Oman. The Washington Post found the foundation had raised nearly $2 billion since the former president launched it in 2001. About one-third of the foundation’s donations of $1 million or more came from foreign governments or entities based outside the United States, the Post analysis found.
