Clinton Library Donors

Marc Ambinder takes a closer look at the lack of disclosure of who’s donating to Bill Clinton’s library and foundation. As I’ve written before, the Clinton’s really ought to engage in more disclosure here. They’re legally within their rights to do what they’re doing, but the voters deserve to know. The Clinton Foundation’s not a nickle-and-dime operation and it’s not being funded by small grassroots contributions, either. As best one can tell the donor list is full of corporate titans and foreign potentates and one can only assume that these people are giving in part out of an expectation that they’re currying favor and getting “access” in political terms along with whatever charitable notions they may have.
