The Clinton Foundation has been called "Hillary's Achilles heel on the campaign trail for US president."[1] "The Clinton Foundation has raised more than $2 billion since its inception in 1997, and Bill and Hillary Clinton have been paid more than $150 million for delivering speeches. Notably, these payments increased dramatically after Hillary Clinton took office as secretary of state in 2009."[2]

Pay to play?

Email leaks

"WikiLeaks emails from John Podesta, Hillary Clinton‘s campaign chair, have confirmed nearly every criticism of the 'Clinton Foundation, debunking the claim that it is solely a philanthropic endeavor run by the Clintons."[3]

Private Equity firm management

As of 2015, the Clinton Foundation was operating a $20 million private equity firm in Colombia, raising concerns from government and consumer watchdog groups who say the practice is unusual and could pose a significant conflict of interest. [4]

2016 hacking

Reuters reported in August 2016 that the Clinton Foundation had been hacked.[5]

Incorrect Tax returns

In 2015, the foundation admitted errors in four separate years regards the reporting of donations from foreign governments.[6]

Haitian Earthquake

Haitian government official Klaus Eberwein suggested that the Clinton Foundation misappropriated funds donated to Haiti after the earthquake. He was found dead in July 2017, a week before he was due to testify before the Haitian Senate’s Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission[7] about corruption by the foundation.[8]
