Clinton Foundation defends fundraising practices

Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP)- The charity founded by former President Bill Clinton is defending its financial support from foreign governments and addressing how it might operate if former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton runs for president again.

The Clinton Foundation says in a statement it receives support from "individuals, organizations and governments from all over the world" and its programs improve the lives of millions of people.

If Hillary Clinton runs for office, the foundation says it will ensure its policies and practices related to international partners are "appropriate, just as we did when she served as Secretary of State."

The Wall Street Journal reported the foundation received money in 2014 from the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Oman. The Washington Post reported the foundation has raised nearly $2 billion since 2001.
