Nancy Pelosi Is Also Guilty

When Hillary Clinton agreed to be Secretary of State during
President Obama's first term, she promised her distance from the
Clinton Foundation. The foundation also agreed to limit foreign
donations.

Both agreements were for good reasons. Foreign officials and
governments were big donors to the Clintons' family foundation,
and there were concerns in the Obama administration about
conflicts of interest between the foundation and Hillary
Clinton's work at Secretary of State.

But over the past year, evidence has emerged that both Clinton
and the foundation failed to live up to those promises. Clinton
and her top officials continued to have a cozy relationship with
the foundation throughout her tenure at State, and evidence
strongly suggest that Clinton was granting access and favors to
major Clinton Foundation donors.

In addition, the Clinton Foundation accepted millions of
donations from foreign governments while Hillary was at State,
including one that violated an ethics agreement it had with the
Obama administration.

The story came to light after the release of a groundbreaking
book by Peter Schweizer — called "Clinton Cash" — which
uncovered a serious of State Department decisions that appeared
to favor big Clinton Foundation donors.

Emails that emerged more recently made it clear that donors
received special access and attention from Clinton and her top
aides. An AP story found that more than half the private
visitors Clinton received at State were donors to her family
foundation.
