Bill Clinton's Foundation Millions Given by Foreign Governments

This was a stickler during the primaries. A stickler for Hillary "possibly" being VP Candidate. And definitely a stickler, upon Hillary being appointed to Secretary of State, designate.

Former President Bill Clinton's foundation has raised at least $41 million from Saudi Arabia and other foreign governments that his wife Hillary Rodham Clinton may end up negotiating with as the next secretary of state.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia gave $10 million to $25 million to the William J. Clinton Foundation, a nonprofit created by the former president to finance his library in Little Rock, Ark., and charitable efforts to reduce poverty and treat AIDS. Other foreign government givers include Norway, Kuwait, Qatar, Brunei, Oman, Italy and Jamaica.

The MSM will soon jump all over this list. Expect it to happen. Along with Blago, they will bundle this one, too.
The foundation disclosed the names of its 205,000 donors on a Web site Thursday, ending a decade of resistance to identifying the sources of its money. While the list is heavy with international business leaders and billionaires, some 12,000 donors gave $10 or less.

One thing, Clinton did not reveal NAMES of who gave what, so, again expect the MSM to jump all over this.
The former president did not release specific totals for each donor, providing only ranges of giving. Nor did he identify individual contributors' occupations or countries of residence.

Donors gave Clinton's foundation at least $492 million from its inception in 1997 through last year, the most recent figures available.
