Rep. Waxman On Contributions To Presidential Foundations: “The Vast Scale Of These Secret Fund-Raising Operations Presents Enormous Opportunities For Abuse.” “To limit the influence of any single donor, federal election law prohibits foreign donations to presidential campaigns and limits Americans to $2,300 per election. But presidential foundations are free to accept unlimited and anonymous contributions, even from foreigners and foreign governments…‘The vast scale of these secret fund-raising operations presents enormous opportunities for abuse,’ said Representative Henry A. Waxman, Democrat of California, who introduced a bill to force disclosure of presidential foundation donors. The bill passed the House, 390-34, in March but stalled in the Senate.” [New York Times, 12/20/07]
CLINTON DEFENDERS CITED HILLARY’S SEPARATION FROM THE FOUNDATION, THE CHARITABLE WORK OF HER HUSBAND, HER EFFORTS TO ENSURE TRANSPARENCY IN POST-PRESIDENTIAL FUNDRAISING, AND THE FUNDRAISING OF FORMER PRESIDENT GEORGE H.W. BUSH
Washington Post: “[George H.W.] Bush's Large Foreign Donors Include Kuwait, Japan, Oman And The United Arab Emirates…The Family Of Bandar Bin Sultan, Former Saudi Ambassador To The United States, Contributed $1 Million Or More.” [Washington Post, 12/15/07]
Clinton Foundation: “As President, [Bill Clinton] Was Beloved Around The World, So It Should Come As No Surprise That There Has Been An Outpouring Of Financial Support From Around The World To Sustain His Post-Presidential Work.” “In response to questions from The Washington Post, the foundation reiterated that it would not discuss specific sizes or sources of donations to honor the commitment it made to donors. But it acknowledged that some of the money Clinton received from the library came from foreign sources. ‘As president, he was beloved around the world, so it should come as no surprise that there has been an outpouring of financial support from around the world to sustain his post-presidential work,’ a foundation statement said.” [Washington Post, 12/14/07]
