Clinton Foundation Will Cut Foreign, Corporate Donations if Hillary is President

If she had taken money directly from foreign governments while serving as the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would have been in violation of the Constitution, specifically Article I, Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution.   In what is known as the Emoluments Clause, which originated from Article VI of the Articles of Confederation, U.S. government officials are not to take money from foreign entities in order to keep these foreign governments from buying influence with that official.

At issue is whether donations to the Clinton Foundation, which indirectly benefit Hillary Clinton, constitute illegal influence-peddling. Bill Clinton's promise seems to suggest he, at least, thinks it appears to do just that. And that begs the question, if it's improper for the Foundation to accept such donations when Hillary is president, why was it acceptable when she was doing favors as Secretary of State?

No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Suddenly Hillary has grown a conscience? Fat chance.  She just got hacked and is exposed.

Former President Bill Clinton tells staff members on Thursday that it will also hold its final Clinton Global Initiative meeting in September in New York, regardless of the outcome of the November election.

The former president made the announcement in an afternoon meeting with foundation staff, according to participants who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity ahead of the formal announcement.

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.
