How on earth can this be considered kosher? There is the very real possibility (I hate to say it) that Ms. Clinton will soon be the president of the United States.
That this money is going to a “foundation” instead of Ms. Clinton’s checking account makes it OK? I don’t think so. But I’m sure it’s legal.
For our enviro friends, one of the foreign contributors is a Canadian agency pushing the XL pipeline.
And conservatives, remember, GW Bush recently said that Hillary Clinton is “like my sister-in-law.”
It’s like a bank heist which everyone sees, but which everyone (or at least many) feel powerless to stop.

United Arab Emirates, a first-time donor, gave between $1 million and $5 million in 2014, and the German government—which also hadn’t previously given—contributed between $100,000 and $250,000.
A previous donor, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, has given between $10 million and $25 million since the foundation was created in 1999. Part of that came in 2014, although the database doesn’t specify how much.
The Australian government has given between $5 million and $10 million, at least part of which came in 2014. It also gave in 2013, when its donations fell in the same range.
Qatar’s government committee preparing for the 2022 soccer World Cup gave between $250,000 and $500,000 in 2014. Qatar’s government had previously donated between $1 million and $5 million.
Oman, which had made a donation previously, gave an undisclosed amount in 2014. Over time, Oman has given the foundation between $1 million and $5 million.
