Clinton Foundation, still takes cash from foreign doners

Clintons vow no retreat on foreign cash - WSJ: 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.

I wonder how much the Clintons pay themselves?

How many favors will she owe,if elected?

There should not be the assumption that by donating to a foundation you are owed any favors.

Hellary getting caught in more lies. Her grandparents were born here. I admit, she has a way to go to catch up to Bill or Obama. But she is closing the gap. I would rather have the real Al Capone for president than Hellary. He would consider us family and make sure we were happy and safe. And I am sure there would be a lot of Iranians sleeping with the fishes.

I know but she is being hammered by the democrats and they have no alternative. What a few years make! In 2008 the GOP was declared a minority party for decades...

Can I mark you all down as being in favor of banning foreign and secret money from super PACs?  Because it's wide open now...

I am all game for that.  Nothing should be in secret when it comes to running for public office, regarding campaign money.

BENGHAZI


"The Washington Post reported last week that the tax-exempt foundation run by Bill and Hillary Clinton accepted money from seven foreign governments while Hillary served as U.S. Secretary of State (its unclear how much foreign money the organization accepted while Hillary was a U.S. Senator). Super shady, right? Its worse than that, though, because Article I, Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution actually bans foreign payola for U.S. officials.

The constitutional ban on foreign cash payments to U.S. officials is known as the Emoluments Clause and originated from Article VI of the Articles of Confederation. The purpose of the clause was to prevent foreign governments from buying influence in the U.S. by paying off U.S. government officials. Heres the text of the clause:

No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Various statutes and rules have been promulgated to effect the constitutional ban on foreign cash. The U.S. House of Representatives bans cash payments from foreign governments. The U.S. Senate, of which Hillary was a member from 2001 to 2009, bans cash payments from foreign governments. And the U.S. State Department bans cash payments from foreign governments. Lets take a look at the specific language from the State Dept.:

Executive branch employees are subject to restrictions on the gifts that they may accept from sources outside the Government. Unless an exception applies, executive branch employees may not accept gifts that are given because of their official positions or that come from certain interested sources (prohibited sources).

A prohibited source is a person (or an organization made up of such persons) who: is seeking official action by, is doing business or seeking to do business with, or is regulated by the employees agency, or has interests that may be substantially affected by performance or nonperformance of the employees official duties. "
