Clinton's charity confirms Qatar's $1 million gift while she was at State Dept


#1

The Clinton Foundation has confirmed it accepted a $1 million gift from Qatar while Hillary Clinton was U.S. secretary of state without informing the State Department, even though she had promised to let the agency review new donations from foreign governments.

Qatari officials pledged the money in 2011 to mark the 65th birthday of Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton’s husband, and sought to meet the former U.S. president in person the following year to present him the check, according to an email from a foundation official to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign chairman, John Podesta. The email, among thousands hacked from Podesta’s account, was published last month by WikiLeaks.

Clinton signed an ethics agreement governing her family’s globe-straddling foundation in order to become secretary of state in 2009. The agreement was designed to increase transparency to avoid appearances that U.S. foreign policy could be swayed by wealthy donors.

A-a-and the hits just keep on coming!

if it had been a republican…

… or a donation from a Russian.

But, hey, we all know that Democrats are trustworthy and Rebuplicans are deplorable so I’m sure it wasn’t a lack of ethics, but simply an oversight. We all know that the Clintons have great respect for the law and keeping their word. :whistle:
