The president of the Clinton Foundation is predicting that the organization will be “dramatically different” if Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is elected president.
Clinton Foundation President Donna Shalala said the group’s fundraising, structure, and board will see big changes if Clinton is elected president, The Hill reports.
“A lot of the work that we’re doing will continue, but in other people’s hands. The president [Bill Clinton] will no longer be on the board of the foundation. He will no longer raise money for the foundation; we’ll no longer have our international programs or our international donors,” Shalala said in an interview with radio host John Catsimatidis.
“Those organizations that we’ve created will spin off into private charities themselves… and be able to continue their work and continue to raise money, but directly themselves,” she added.
Shalala said the foundation will merge with other organizations in some instances and redirect resources to those other groups.
The foundation will also stop directly working internationally and will no longer accept donations from corporate foundations or foreign donors.
The Clinton Foundation has long been accused of pay-for-play schemes, which have been detailed in the book Clinton Cash by Breitbart Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer.
Leaked emails from Wikileaks show that right before the book was released, Clinton’s campaign staff panicked and told her she had to answer questions from the press instead of hiding behind a video like she had planned to do to address the claims, Breitbart News reported.
Since the book was released, there have been numerous calls for the foundation to shut down, including a headline from The Huffington Post that called for the foundation’s closure.
