New York Times Political Reporter Nick Confessore predicted the Clinton Foundation will be an “endless source of headaches” because of the money they take from governments and corporations “seeking influence in American politics, and no doubt seeking influence with a potential future president” on Monday’s broadcast of “The Rundown With Jose Diaz-Balart” on MSNBC.
“I just feel like the Clinton Foundation, for all the good that it does, is going to be an endless source of headaches, because of the money they raise from overseas governments, from big corporations that are seeking influence in American politics, and no doubt seeking influence with a potential future president. And every time they take one of these big checks you have to wonder how it impacts the policy decision-making of her and her campaign” he stated.
Confessore added that the Clinton Foundation receives money from “governments that cannot give any money at all the conventional way in politics. they are banned from giving money to campaigns or super PACs, but they can plow a ton of money into that family philanthropy if they want to.”
