The Clinton Foundations tax returns are the latest piece of information in the ongoing examination of foreign donations accepted by the family charity while Hillary served as Secretary of State.
After multiple errors were discovered earlier this year, the Clinton Foundation re-filed four years of taxes returns.
Between 2010 and 2012 the Clinton Foundations reported zero donations from foreign government sources.
It turns out that $20 million in government grants and contributions went unreported, much of it from foreign sources.
Here’s how it breaks down:
Tax filings show that as Hillary Clinton prepared to run for president in 2014, donations from foreign governments increased THREEFOLD:
Government grants and contributions for the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Health Access Initiative came out to the following:
Among foreign donors are Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, and United Arab Emirates, many of which have poor records on women’s rights and terrorism.
The undisclosed foreign donations violate an ethics agreement Hillary Clinton signed with the Obama administration, requiring that donations from foreign governments be submitted for review by the State Department. Despite Hillary’s pledge of “unprecedented” transparency, the Clinton Foundation failed to submit any foreign donations to State for review and did not disclose all donors as promised.
But, more than that, the shadowy finances of Hillary’s family foundation raises ethical questions about undue influence that are unprecedented for a presidential candidate.
According to a recent poll conducted by 60 minutes and Vanity Fair, a majority of Americans are concerned that foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary was Secretary of State posed as a conflict of interest.

The entire episode is one of a long string of examples of Hillary’s contempt for the rules and disdain for transparency.
As the Clintons and their allies do everything possible to skirt the truth, the RNC will continue to shed light on their secrets and scandals.
