FOREIGN INDIVIDUAL DONORS TO THE CLINTON FOUNDATION
WHILE HILLARY WAS A U.S. SENATOR

* “The foundation disclosed the names of its 205,000 donors on its Web site Thursday, ending a decade of resistance to identifying them. It released only the names of donors and the range of their contributions. It did not identify each contributor's occupation, employer or nationality or provide any other details. The foundation said separately Thursday that fewer than 3,000 of its donors were foreigners but it did not identify which ones.” [Associated Press, 1/18/09]

*
Amar Singh, a donor in the $1 million to $5 million category, is an Indian politician who played host to Bill Clinton on a visit to India in 2005 and met Hillary Clinton in New York in September to discuss an India-U.S. civil nuclear agreement. Also in that category was Suzlon Energy Ltd. of Amsterdam, a leading supplier of wind turbines. Its chairman is Tulsi R. Tanti, one of India's wealthiest executives. Tanti announced plans at Clinton's Global Initiative meeting earlier this year for a $5 billion project to develop environmentally friendly power generation in India and China.” [Associated Press, 1/18/09]

* “The foundation's list also underscores ties between the Clintons and India, which could complicate diplomatic perceptions of whether Hillary Clinton can be a neutral broker between India and neighboring Pakistan in a region where Obama will face an early test of his foreign policy leadership. Tensions between the two nuclear nations are high since last month's deadly terrorist attacks in Mumbai. Amar Singh, a donor in the $1 million to $5 million category, is an Indian politician who played host to Bill Clinton on a visit to India in 2005 and met Hillary Clinton in New York in September to discuss an India-U.S. civil nuclear agreement.” [Associated Press, 
1/18/09]

* “The royal family of Saudi Arabia gave the Clinton facility in Little Rock about $10 million, roughly the same amount it gave toward the presidential library of George H.W. Bush, according to people directly familiar with the contributions.” [Washington Post, 
12/15/07]

* The Post confirmed numerous seven-figure donors to the library through interviews and tax records of foundations.

* “Bill Clinton's Presidential Library Raised More Than 10 Percent Of The Cost Of Its $165 Million Facility From Foreign Sources, With The Most Generous Overseas Donation Coming From Saudi Arabia.” [Washington Post, 12/14/07]


OTHER CONTROVERSIAL DONATIONS TO THE BILL CLINTON PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY WHILE HILLARY WAS A U.S. SENATOR

* A “$31.3 Million Donation, Which Was Previously Undisclosed, Came From The Radcliffe Foundation Run By Frank Giustra…Who Has Made Millions Financing Mining Deals Around The World.” [New York Times,12/20/07]

* Some Donors To The Clinton Library In The Final Year Of Bill Clinton’s Administration “Were Seeking Policy Changes From The Administration.” “The New York Times has compiled the first comprehensive list of 97 donors who gave or pledged a total of $69 million for the Clinton presidential library in the final years of the Clinton administration. The examination found that while some $1 million contributors were longtime Clinton friends, others were seeking policy changes from the administration. Two pledged $1 million each while they or their companies were under investigation by the Justice Department.” [New York Times, 12/20/07]

* “In raising record sums for her campaign, Mrs. Clinton has tapped many of the foundation’s donors. At least two dozen have become ‘Hillraisers,’ each bundling $100,000 or more for her presidential bid. The early library donors, combined with their families and political action committees, have contributed at least $784,000 to Mrs. Clinton’s Senate and presidential coffers.” [New York Times,
12/20/07]

* “A handful of major donors' names to the Clinton library were disclosed in 2004 when a New York Sun reporter accessed a public computer terminal at the library that provided a list of donors. Soon after the article appeared, the list of donors was removed.” [Washington Post, 12/14/07]


WHEN HILLARY BECAME SECRETARY OF STATE, THE CLINTONS PLEDGED THAT THEIR FOUNDATION'S CLINTON GLOBAL INITIATIVE WOULD STOP ACCEPTING FOREIGN CONTRIBUTIONS

* When then-Senator Hillary Clinton became Secretary of State, former president Bill Clinton “agreed to step away from direct involvement in the Clinton Global Initiative [CGI], an annual charitable conference where businesses and many foreign governments pledge donations to help ameliorate AIDS, poverty and other social ills. He will continue serving as CGI's founding chairman but will not solicit money or sponsorships.

* “President-Elect Barack Obama Made Hillary Clinton's Nomination As Secretary Of State Contingent On Her Husband Revealing The Foundation's Contributors, To Address Questions About Potential Conflicts Of Interest.” [Associated Press, 1/18/09]

* “In 2009, the Clinton Foundation stopped raising money from foreign governments after Mrs. Clinton became secretary of state. Former President Bill Clinton, who ran the foundation while his wife was at the State Department, agreed to the gift ban at the behest of the Obama a
dministration, which worried about a secretary of state’s husband raising millions while she represented U.S. interests abroad. The ban wasn’t absolute; some foreign government donations were permitted for ongoing programs approved by State Department ethics officials.” [Wall Street Journal, 2/17/15]


FOREIGN GOVERNMENT DONATIONS TO THE CLINTON FOUNDATION WHILE HILLARY WAS SECRETARY OF STATE

* “The Clinton Foundation admitted Thursday that a 2010 donation from the Algerian government was not properly approved under the guidelines the Obama administration put in place with the foundation when Hillary Clinton became Secretary of State in 2009. The ‘unsolicited’ $500,000 donation was made by the Embassy of Algeria ‘immediately following the devastating earthquake in Haiti on January 12, 2010,’ the Clinton foundation said in an unsigned statement.” [CNN,
2/26/15]

* “At the outset, the Clinton Foundation did indeed publish what they said was a complete list of the names of more than 200,000 donors and has continued to update it. But in a breach of the pledge, the charity's flagship health program [the Clinton Health Access Initiative, or CHAI], which spends more than all of the other foundation initiatives put together, stopped making the annual disclosure in 2010, Reuters has found.” [Reuters, 3/19/15]

* “The State Department said it was unable to cite any instances of its officials reviewing or approving new money from any foreign governments. Daley confirmed that none of the seven government donations had been submitted to the State Department for review.” [Reuters, 
3/19/15]

* “By the time Clinton left office in February 2013, the charity had received millions of dollars in new or increased payments from at least seven foreign governments. Five of the governments came on board during her tenure as secretary of state while two doubled or tripled their support in that time, according to data provided by CHAI spokeswoman Daley…CHAI should have told the State Department before accepting donations totaling $340,000 from Switzerland's Agency for Development and Cooperation in 2011 and 2012. However, it did not believe U.S. authorities needed to review the other six governments, including Britain and Australia, she said, citing various reasons.” [Reuters, 
3/19/15]

* “In 2008, the Clintons agreed that existing government contributors that wanted to ‘materially increase’ their commitments during Hillary Clinton's tenure would be reviewed by State. Australia almost doubled its support between 2009-2012, to $12.2 million, while the United Kingdom nearly tripled its support, to $11.2 million. CHAI did not report these increases to the State Department because the new money was for ‘expansions of existing programs,’ [CHAI spokeswoman] Daley said.” [Reuters, 
3/19/15]

* In the case of Sweden, its International Development Cooperation Agency has given CHAI $7.2 million since 2012 to train health workers in Zambia, but nothing in at least the previous three years. This did not need State review because Sweden had given to the foundation prior to 2009, Daley said.” [Reuters, 3/19/15]

* “Rwanda, which CHAI listed as a donor, gave the charity $200,000 in 2012. CHAI considered this a fee for medical work it did in the country, not a grant or donation, and so did not tell the State Department about it, Daley said.” [Reuters, 
3/19/15]

* The Clinton Health Access Initiative Also Received Donations From The Governments Of Ireland, Norway, Cameroon, Canada, Flanders, Lesotho, And New Zealand Between 2009 And 2014. [Reuters, 
3/19/15]


CLINTON FOUNDATION INDIVIDUAL FOREIGN DONORS WHILE HILLARY WAS SECRETARY OF STATE

* “The Clinton Foundation swore off donations from foreign governments when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. That didn’t stop the foundation from raising millions of dollars from foreigners with connections to their home governments, a review of foundation disclosures shows. Some donors have direct ties to foreign governments. One is a member of the Saudi royal family. Another is a Ukrainian oligarch and former parliamentarian. Others are individuals with close connections to foreign governments that stem from their business activities. Their professed policy interests range from human rights to U.S.-Cuba relations.” [Wall Street Journal, 3/19/15]

* During Secretary Clinton’s tenure at the State Department, “More than a dozen foreign individuals and their foundations and companies were large donors to the Clinton Foundation… collectively giving between $34 million and $68 million.... Some donors also provided funding directly to charitable projects sponsored by the foundation, valued by the organization at $60 million.” [Wall Street Journal, 
3/19/15]

* “Between 2009 and 2013…Clinton Foundation received at least $8.6 million from the Victor Pinchuk Foundation,” created by former Ukrainian Parliament Member Victor Pinchuk. “... Pinchuk['s] … fortune stems from a pipe-making company. He served two terms as an elected member of the Ukrainian Parliament and is a proponent of closer ties between Ukraine and the European Union. Mr. Pinchuk and his wife—the daughter of former Ukraine President Leonid Kuchma—began donating to Clinton charities in 2006 after being introduced to Mr. Clinton by Doug Schoen, a pollster who has worked for both Clintons.... In 2008, Mr. Pinchuk made a five-year, $29 million commitment to the Clinton Global Initiative, a wing of the foundation that coordinates charitable projects and funding for them but doesn’t handle the money. The pledge was to fund a program to train future Ukrainian leaders and professionals ‘to modernize Ukraine,’ according to the Clinton Foundation.... During Mrs. Clinton’s time at the State Department, Mr. Schoen, the pollster, registered as a lobbyist for Mr. Pinchuk, federal records show. Mr. Schoen said he and Mr. Pinchuk met several times with Clinton aides including Melanne Verveer, a Ukrainian-American and then a State Department ambassador-at-large for global women’s issues. The purpose, Mr. Schoen said, was to encourage the U.S. to pressure Ukraine’s then-President Viktor Yanukovych to free his jailed predecessor, Yulia Tymoshenko.” [Wall Street Journal, 
3/19/15]

* Saudi Prince Turki al-Faisal Donated To The Clinton Foundation In 2013 And 2014. [Wall Street Journal, 
3/19/15]

* “Another donor, Sheikh Mohammed H. Al Amoudi, an Ethiopian immigrant to Saudi Arabia, has donated between $5 million and $10 million, including while Mrs. Clinton served in the State Department. Mr. Al Amoudi has built an empire of construction, agricultural and energy companies across Saudi Arabia and Ethiopia. He also has endowed a breast-cancer institute at the government-run King Abdulaziz University and is a participant in Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah Food Security Program. His U.S. lawyer, George Salem, said his client ‘is a private Saudi citizen, and not a government official in Saudi Arabia.’ He said there was “nothing inappropriate” about the donation, which was to fight AIDS in Ethiopia.” [Wall Street Journal, 
3/19/15]

* A German Investor Who Has Lobbied Chancellor Merkel’s Administration Gave Between $1 Million And $5 Million To The Clinton Foundation, “Some Of Which Came During Mrs. Clinton’s Tenure At The State Department.” [Wall Street Journal, 
3/19/15]

* “Venezuelan media mogul Gustavo Cisneros, who is active in Venezuelan politics and has long advocated restoring ties between the U.S. and Cuba, has given the foundation between $500,000 and $1 million, some during Mrs. Clinton’s stint at the State Department. He owns Venevisión, one of Venezuela’s largest television networks, once a staunch opponent of former President Hugo Chávez. Since Mr. Chávez’s death in 2013, Mr. Cisneros has maintained ties to the new president, Nicolás Maduro. [Wall Street Journal, 
3/19/15]

* “Victor Dahdaleh, a London businessman whose foundation contributed between $1 million and $5 million, has ties to Bahrain’s state-owned aluminum company. He was the intermediary between the state-owned Aluminum Bahrain B.S.C. and Alcoa World Alumina, which is majority owned by Alcoa Inc. Last year, he was acquitted in London on charges of bribing Bahraini officials to secure contracts for the Alcoa firm. In the U.S., the Alcoa affiliate pleaded guilty last year to corruption charges, and the Justice Department said an investigation into the matter remains open.” [Wall Street Journal, 
3/19/15]


STATE DEPARTMENT LAWYERS DID NOT EXHAUSTIVELY VET BILL CLINTON’S PAID SPEECHES WHILE HILLARY WAS SECRETARY OF STATE

* “In hundreds of documents released to POLITICO under the Freedom of Information Act, not a single case appears where the State Department explicitly rejected a Bill Clinton speech [because of a possible conflict of interest]. Instead, the records show State Department lawyers acted on sparse information about business proposals and speech requests and were under the gun to approve the proposals promptly.”[Politico, 2/25/15]
