A review of donations to the Clinton Foundation reveals that big labor unions such as the AFL-CIO, teachers unions, and state and county workers unions gave millions of their members’ dues money to the Clintons.

A cursory look at the donations shows that at least $2,034,500 was transferred from unions to the Clintons between 2010 and 2014.

Also of note is the fact that some of the donations the unions gave were labeled as “political activities” and others “grants” meaning that some unions didn’t exactly bother to try to hide the donations behind the label of “charitable” giving.

Some of these unions also appear on the list of nearly 200 companies and organizations that donated to the Clintons, then lobbied Hillary for favors while she was Secretary of State.
