    Foreign governments gave millions to foundation while Clinton was at State Dept.

    The only surprising thing about it is the stupidity.

    But, when you are The Clintons, you probably think you can get away with everything....

    TheClinton Foundation accepted millions of dollars from seven foreign governments during Hillary Rodham Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, including one donation that violated its ethics agreement with the Obama administration, foundation officials disclosed Wednesday....

    The new disclosures, provided in response to questions from The Washington Post, make clear that the 2008 agreement did not prohibit foreign countries with interests before the U.S. government from giving money to the charity closely linked to the secretary of state.
    In one instance, foundation officials acknowledged they should have sought approval in 2010 from the State Department ethics office, as required by the agreement for new government donors, before accepting a $500,000 donation from the Algerian government.

    The money was given to assist with earthquake relief in Haiti, the foundation said. At the time, Algeria, which has sought a closer relationship with Washington, was spending heavily to lobby the State Department on human rights issues....

    Some of the donations came from countries with complicated diplomatic, military and financial relationships with the U.S. government, including Kuwait, Qatar and Oman....

    Foreign governments had been major donors to the foundation before President Obama nominated Clinton to become secretary of state in 2009. When the foundation released a list of its donors for the first time in 2008, as a result of the agreement with the Obama administration, it disclosed, for instance, that Saudi Arabia had given between $10 million and $25 million....


    I think I shall wait without holding my breath for those who claimed so vociferously that tenuous connections to "oil" meant the Bush Administration was bought and paid for by the Saudi's to rise in anger...

    Yeah CPW. With an unspecified portion of the Sauds money, all taking place in 2014. Naturally the Clintons are defending themselves. As they don't want to be forced to return the money.




    Saudi Arabia, a previous donor, has given between $10 million and $25 million since the foundation’s creation. An unspecified portion of the money came in 2014. The United Arab Emirates, a first-time donor, gave between $1 million and $5 million, 2014 according to disclosures on an online Clinton Foundation database. The German government—another first-time donor—contributed between $100,000 and $250,000.

    Other donors to the foundation last year included Jonathan Lavine, an investment adviser in Boston and previous donor to Mrs. Clinton’s campaigns, gave between $500,000 and $1 million together with his wife through a foundation they created. Several prominent Silicon Valley figures gave to the foundation for the first time last year. Ann Doerr, the wife of venture capitalist John Doerr , gave between $50,000 and $100,000. A foundation started by Sean Parker , the co-founder of Napster, gave between $500,000 and $1 million.....snip~

    News! All politicians think they can get away with anything. And guess what, patronizing, partisan Americans let them. Look for more of the same.

    As the guy with his nose up the GOP's ass says.

    The region which is now threatened by Soviet troops in Afghanistan is of great strategic importance: It contains more than two-thirds of the world's exportable oil. The Soviet effort to dominate Afghanistan has brought Soviet military forces to within 300 miles of the Indian Ocean and close to the Straits of Hormuz, a waterway through which most of the world's oil must flow. The Soviet Union is now attempting to consolidate a strategic position, therefore, that poses a grave threat to the free movement of Middle East oil.

    The Carter Doctrine

    It's always been about oil, deny that as you may.

    I've been highly critical of Obama's ME policies, and you know that. Care to be honest about that, or would you prefer talking to yourself, hmm? Why don't you try keeping up. Your nose in the GOP's ass has you suffocating.
