Clinton Foundation Will Stop Accepting Foreign, Corporate Donations if Hillary Elected

Oh, so NOW they’re concerned about ethics.

The Associated Press is reporting that the Clinton Foundation will stop accepting donations from foreign and corporate entities if Hillary Clinton is elected president.

Former President Bill Clinton made the announcement Thursday afternoon during a meeting with foundation staff. He also told them the last Clinton Global Initiative meeting would be held in New York in September.

From the wire:

Bill Clinton said if Hillary Clinton wins the White House, the family's foundation would only accept contributions from U.S. citizens and independent charities.

He added the foundation will continue its work, but plans to refocus its efforts in a process that will take up to a year to complete.

While Hillary was secretary of state, the Clinton Foundation received millions of dollars from foreign governments, which violated ethics agreements wishing the Obama administration. 

For the last 40 years, between their campaigns and foundation, the Clintons have raised $3 billion -- a third through campaigns and $2 billion through the Clinton Foundation. 

The Freedom Center is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Therefore we do not endorse political candidates either in primary or general elections. However, as defenders of America’s social contract, we insist that the rules laid down by both parties at the outset of campaigns be respected, and that the results be decided by free elections. We will oppose any attempt to rig the system and deny voters of either party their constitutional right to elect candidates of their choice.
