WASHINGTON - Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) annual meeting in New York:
“Hillary Clinton’s decision to skip CGI is another reminder of how badly compromised her presidency would be. The Clinton Foundation’s continued acceptance of foreign contributions while she runs for the White House is an unprecedented and unacceptable conflict of interest that undermines her ability to serve. This is even more evident in light of Bill Clinton’s admission this morning that it was only ‘natural’ for donors to ask for favors from Hillary Clinton’s State Department.
“The pattern of foundation donors and officials benefiting from access, favors and official actions by Clinton’s State Department is deeply troubling and deserves to be investigated by an independent special prosecutor. Pay-to-play corruption may be how Hillary Clinton intends to run the White House, but it’s not the kind of leadership the American people expect or deserve.”
