Clinton Foundation waiting to reject foreign money

Clinton Foundation waiting to reject foreign money


JOINING ME NOW IS THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN MANAGER, ROBBY MOOK. THANKS FOR JOINING ME. MY FIRST QUESTION FOR YOU IS ABOUT THE CLINTON FOUNDATION. IT ANNOUNCED THURSDAY IT WILL NOT ACCEPT FOREIGN DONATIONS IF HILLARY CLINTON IS ELECTED PRESIDENT. 40% OF THE FOUNDATION’S TOP DONORS, THOSE GIVING MORE THAN A MILLION DOLLARS, ARE FOREIGN. SO IF IT’S NOT OKAY TO TAKE THIS MONEY AS PRESIDENT, WHY WAS IT OKAY TO TAKE IT AS SECRETARY OF STATE?>>WELL, FIRST OF ALL, WHEN THE RULES WERE PUT IN PLACE IN 2009, THEY WERE A BIG BURDEN ON THE FOUNDATION. AND IT’S IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER WHAT THE FOUNDATION DOES. OVER 10 MILLION PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD GET IMPORTANT AIDS MEDICATION, LIFE-SAVING AIDS AND HIV MEDICATION BECAUSE OF THE FOUNDATION. IT’S REDUCED THE COST OF MALARIA DRUGS BY MORE THAN 90%. THIS IS IMPORTANT, LIFE-SAVING WORK. THERE ARE SOME FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS LIKE AUSTRALIA AND NORWAY THAT WERE — THAT HAD EXISTING DONATIONS TO THE FOUNDATION AND THE FOUNDATION WANTED THEM TO BE ABLE TO FOLLOW THROUGH ON THEIR COMMITMENTS SO THE WORK COULD BE PROTECTED. BUT IT WAS AN UNPRECEDENTED STEP THEY TOOK BACK IN 2009, AND THE FOUNDATION IS SAYING THEY’RE PREPARED TO MAKE AN UNPRECEDENTED STEP SHOULD HILLARY BECOME PRESIDENT TO GO EVEN FURTHER IN TERMS OF DISCLOSURE AND LIMITS. >>BUT IF THIS IS THE RIGHT POLICY NOW, WHY NOT DO IT NOW? WHY WAIT UNTIL THE IDEA OF HER BEING PRESIDENT. WHY NOT DO IT WHEN SHE IS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT?>>THE FOUNDATION IS DOING AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF WORK, AND IT TAKES TIME WHEN YOU’RE IN A NUMBER OF COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD TO RETOOL, REFOCUS THE MISSION, AND ADAPT. AS YOU SAID, THEY RECEIVE A GREAT DEAL OF FUNDING THROUGH THESE STREAMS. IT WILL JUST TAKE SOME TIME FOR THEM TO READJUST. LOOK, WHAT WE’RE FOCUSED ON RIGHT NOW IS MAKING SURE HILLARY CLINTON IS ELECTED PRESIDENT, SO NOBODY WANTS TO GET AHEAD OF THEMSELVES. BUT WE’RE GLAD TO HEAR THAT THEY HAVE ONCE AGAIN TAKEN AN UNPRECEDENTED STEP IN TERMS OF TRANSPARENCY AND RULES. >>ROBBY, I KNOW YOU UNDERSTAND THIS. PART OF THE ISSUE WITH A LOT OF VOTERS KEEPING HER FROM BEING PRESIDENT, KEEPING VOTERS FROM GOING INTO THE BOOTH AND VOTING FOR HER, IS THEY THINK THAT, YOU KNOW, THAT THERE ARE LOTS OF QUESTIONS ABOUT THE INTEGRITY OR HONESTY OF HER EXPERIENCE IN POLITICS AND THAT THIS IS ONE OF THEM. SO, CONSIDERING THAT, WHY NOT, IF YOU’RE GOING TO TAKE THIS STEP, DO NOW TO MAKE CLEAR THAT THERE IS NO ISSUE HERE WITH HER ACCEPTING FOREIGN DONATIONS OR OTHERS FROM PEOPLE WHO MIGHT BE TRYING TO AFFECT HER AND TRYING TO GET AROUND GIVING IT TO THE CAMPAIGN THE WAY ANYBODY ELSE WOULD IS. >>WHAT THE FOUNDATION DID WAS UNPRECEDENTED AS I SAID, WHAT THEY’RE GOING TO DO IS UNPRECEDENTED AS WELL. TALK ABOUT TRANSPARENCY. DONALD TRUMP HASN’T RELEASED HIS TAXES. DONALD TRUMP HASN’T RELEASED A SERIOUS HEALTH LETTER YET. DONALD TRUMP REFUSES TO DISCLOSE THE FULL ARCHITECTURE OF HIS FINANCIAL DEBTS AND OBLIGATIONS AROUND THE WORLD. WE JUST READ YESTERDAY IN THE “NEW YORK TIMES” THAT HE IS A DEBTOR TO THE BANK OF CHINA. NO ONE HAD DISCLOSED THIS. >>I ASKED ABOUT HILLARY CLINTON, NOT DONALD TRUMP. WE’LL TALK LATER ABOUT THAT. >>WELL — BUT MY POINT IS THAT THERE IS ALL THIS SCRUTINY BECAUSE SHE HAS BEEN TRANSPARENT. I DON’T THINK YOU HEARD THESE QUESTIONS WHEN MEMBERS OF THE BUSH FAMILY CONTINUED TO SERVE ON BOARDS FOR THE FIRST PRESIDENT BUSH’S FOUNDATION. SO, AS I SAID, THE FOUNDATION IS TAKING UNPRECEDENTED STEPS HERE. WE’RE VERY PROUD THAT THEY’RE DOING THAT. BUT RIGHT NOW WE’RE

  1. Why didn't they stop when she became Secretary of State? Exactly.

  2. look at his fake smile, more like a grin, not trustworthy

  3. typical Demoncrat, always lying and putting a spin on everything.Do they really think people are a bunch of stupid puppets and believe everything they say. Well I must concede some of this remark as there are stupid puppets that are demoncrats

  4. Wait until people find out and stop. Right?

  5. Clinton Foundation, wants to look good after decades of money laundry and Influence selling.
    Once a crook always a crook.

  6. He must be smiling because of how much bullsh*t he is spewing. What a joke. No one believes in Clinton aid until we see it ourselves.

  7. This son of a bitch admits they aren't going to stop taking foreign money. This corrupt money faced piece of shit called Clinton.

  8. Last PEW poll shows Clinton only +4 now. Another poll is tie. I hope you enjoyed your last month of "Clinton is opening a large lead" bullshit.

  9. Only among Dumpsters u get shit for helping 10 MILLION PEOPLE, and reduce the cost of malaria medicine by 90%..

  10. why wont Hillary come on tv and say this? O thats right 255+ days no new conference, new york times makes shit up end of story on that

  11. aids medication from the foundation has found to be cheap knockoff drugs that have led to the dead of hundreds if not thousands of African men women and children… so sad the clintons have killed african children all for the almighty dollar…

  12. the bushs' are criminals and so are the clintons… murders of 3rd world country children

  13. In order to fix America we must fix the corrupted system

  14. I just fucking laughed this whole video. He can't avoid the question so obviously so he has to turn to trump.

  15. typical…. uh uh uh… answer the question

  16. Don't worry, everybody — the mainstream media will be exposed for the DNC mouthpiece that it is soon enough.

  17. It's because she needs the money now to win and if she became president then it would be too late because she already would have been bought off by the foreign money donors

  18. TOO LITTLE TOO LATE AND TOO CONFUSE, MOST THOSE COUNTRIES THAT GIVE SOME MONIES FOR THE CLINTON FOUNDATION GOOD CAUSE ARE POOR COUNTRIES WITH A LOT PROBLEM OF SAME ISSUE IN THEIR OWN COUNTRIES, SO WHY ARE GIVING MONIES FOR A GOOD CAUSE TO OTHER COUNTRY WHEN THEMSELVES HAVE THE SAME OR WORST PROBLEM IN THEIR OWN COUNTRIES?

  19. Australia/Norway? he should have said Saudi Arabia and numerous donations from middle eastern countries

  20. Good for you CNN on asking some harder questions, your far from perfect but good step in the right direction.

  21. wolf in sheep's clothing

TRUMP 2016

  24. Remember this is coming from Hillarys foundation, The question is. is it true or a lie ,and why wait?

  25. Sop smirking, moron. And I don't give a shit about Trump's taxes but I do care about Hillary bribery moneys.

  26. But was it unprecedented?

  27. Obama's IRS is still auditing Trump so he cannot legally release his taxes and the liar Robby Mook knows that and so does lying lawyer Hillary.

  28. Dana has egg on her face as does the entire Clinton News Network. You have knowingly aided and abetted a criminal.

  29. robby is lucky hes not on judge jeanine on fox he would be ripped in 2

  30. EXCUSE ME, CNN, EXCUSE ME BILL CLINTON…ARE YOU SAYING A MASS MURDERED SHOULD NOT BE CHARGE IF HE/SHE PROMISED NEVER TO MURDERED AGAIN???
    ARE YOU SAYING HILLARY LIED UNDERNOATH. SHE LIED TO THE AMERICAN PPL ABOUT EVERYTHING…SHE HAD A SERVER IN HER BASEMENT…THE GUY WHO SET IT UP HIS PAY WAS NOT REPORTED…HE TOOK THE FIFTH.. SHE DELETED 33,000 EMAILS…FBI SAID THEY WERE CLASSIFIED AS HIGHLY SECRET… (Bill said to us it was an itty bitty "c" on 2 emails, "c" was for staff to remember to "CALL the sender!!!
    DO I LOOK LIKE AN IDIOT TO YOU, SIR???
    AND, HEY, CNN, WHY YOU NEVER ASK THIS:
    "HOW MUCH CLINTON SPENDS ON ALL THE CHARITABLE THINGS? HOW MUCH CLINTON/FOUNDATION KEEPS???"
    YOU NEVER ASK IT.
    ONLY 10%, MEANING, CLINTON KEEPS ALMOST 100% OF EVERY DOLLAR…
    MONEY LAUNDRING? SHE WONT DO IT AGAIN?

    I think Hillary will be indicted next week…she will be charged.

  31. Why does his face look like that?

  32. It has been proven that only 10% of All charity makes it to its intended… the rest goes into the pockets of Clinton and friends!!!

  33. American people are facing the greatest failure of America history presidential election. It's sad to see that they have to choose a corrupt and warmongering Clinton or Donald Trump the clown

  34. Truth is coming out…he basically said they don't give a fuck if there supporting a criminal…they just have to get her elected…so fuck you America.

  35. I don't envy his job.

  36. Blacks and minorities voting for democratic party have a SLAVE mentality, that party has betrayed minorities time and again. Time to consider independent candident.

  37. The obvious answer to the first question is that it was NOT okay for the Clinton Foundation to have taken money from foreign donors when she was Secretary of State

  43. “Hillary will never forget who she is working for, “that would be Saudi Arabia, globalists, special interest groups, Goldman Sachs, Wall Street. Did I forget anyone?
    You are with her? BUT SHE IS WITH THEM!

  44. The BS that this dude spews is F'n hilarious.

  45. Why reject money only after Hillary becomes president? That's because they're funnelling in foreign money from the foundation to her campaign right now, tax-free.

  46. The FBI isn't looking into Trump they Have and Still looking into that Lrying Hillary Wrong doing

  47. This whack-job practices that smirk for hours daily while looking in the mirror – he waited for this moment to show off that smile, lol!

  48. the foundation was a Clinton family piggy bank which happened to donate to charity

  49. This segment felt like advice thinly veiled as questioning
