A donor list released on New Year’s Day by the William J. Clinton Foundation  shows that Saudi Arabia and Norway each gave $10 million to $25 million to the former president’s charity.

The biggest donors included the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which gave more than $25 million.

The Clintons agreed to annually disclose the names of donors to the former president’s foundation to address concerns about potential conflicts of interest between his fundraising abroad and Hillary Rodham Clinton’s role as secretary of state.

Saudia oil was always the biggest sponsor of terrorisim. The USA is afraid of a spike in oil prices if they don't keep it hushed. We must therefore begin off shore drilling, & using our coal resources.

So whats wrong with that. They are one of America's closest allies. Don't you remember George Bush giving Abdul Aziz, the King of Saudi Arabia a big hug and inviting him to spend the weekend at his ranch in Texas. While we may not like thier policy towards EY, our country regards them as a big friend and ally.

You should study something before you talk.....
Bill has a foundation that gives out charity all over the globe since he left office....
That has nothing to do with the obama administration or hillary the only reason this information is made public is for people like you should have what to talk about

Thusfar, she has shown herself to be much more sympathetic to Israel than the Palestinians although she has worked to hold Netanyahu to EY's pledge to not build new settlements in the west bank and evict the illegal settlements already existing. That was the policy of the Bush administration and continued by Obama.

The Bush family and administrations have been very close to the Saudis for years. Bush senior is often over there. Their financial interests are very closely tied to the Saudis. Did you criticize them the same way?
