No Longer Selling Access, the Clinton Foundation Begs for Funds | Heat Street

“…As we prepare for a new year, President Clinton and Chelsea remain dedicated to our work providing everyone a chance to succeed,” Lindsey wrote in the email. “Your contribution before the end of the year is so important that President Clinton is personally TRIPLING every gift to the Foundation, up to $200,000.”

Interestingly, Hillary’s name is nowhere to be found.

The FBI is still investigating the Clinton Foundation for corruption and money laundering. It was a hot topic during the presidential race; Donald Trump repeatedly described the foundation as a “criminal enterprise.” Emails published by WikiLeaks exposed questionable behavior at the foundation, such as the Qatari government presenting Bill Clinton with a $1 million check for his birthday.

In the email to foundation supporters, Lindsey dismissed allegations of wrongdoing, describing the foundation as a “force for good in this world.”

We’ll see in the coming months and years if the foundation’s sketchy donors were truly committing to “saving the world,” or if they just saw the foundation as an easy way to purchase influence and access to power.

Bill Clinton is personally pledging up to $200,000 in matching donations.
