When it comes to where Hillary Clinton gets her campaign money, the putative 2016 Democrat presidential front-runner has made her position clear: what difference does it make?
The Clinton Foundation certainly doesn’t think it makes any, since the giant nonprofit silently removed its rules forbidding foreign governments from making donations. Now, the fundraising arm of Bill and Hillary, Inc. can watched the money roll in.
According to the Wall Street Journal, “the foundation has raised at least $48 million from overseas governments” since 2001. And some of this money comes from worrying sources.
For instance, one of the biggest donors is Saudi Arabia, whose Shariah-on-steroids government has donated no less than $10 million of that total.
Another donor is a specific Canadian government agency interested in promoting the Keystone XL pipeline. While the Keystone XL pipeline is no doubt a beneficial project, it certainly creates the image of a conflict of interest, if not a quid pro quo relationship.
