Sanders: Clinton Foundation Is a ‘Problem,’ They Took Millions of Dollars From ‘Dictatorships’


Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said he has a “problem” with the “many millions of dollars” his opponent Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton’s foundation has gotten in donations from foreign dictatorships.

Partial transcript as follows:

TAPPER: You have not been critical of the Clinton Foundation but there are those who say there’s something inherently wrong with an American charity especially one with ties to a secretary of state taking money from the Saudis and other foreign governments that don’t represent our values. Is that a fair criticism?

SANDERS: Yes it is. You asked me about the Clinton Foundation, do I have a problem when a sitting secretary of state and a foundation run by her husband collects many millions of dollars from foreign governments, governments which are dictatorships. You don’t have a lot of civil liberties, democratic rights in Saudi Arabia. You don’t have a lot of respect there for opposition points of view for gay rights, for women’s rights. Yes, do I have a problem with that, yeah, I do.

TAPPER: Do you think it creates the appearance of conflict of interest?

SANDERS: I do. I do.
