Bill Clinton On Foreign Donations: “I Think It’s A Good Thing.”

During tonight’s CGI U’s Closing Conversation, Hillary Clinton made sure to steer clear from addressing the latest scandal plaguing her campaign-in-waiting. Bill Clinton, on the other hand, faced questions about the Clinton Foundation accepting donations from foreign governments. Despite the overwhelming consensus that doing so raises numerous ethical questions and conflicts of interest, Clinton defended the donations, saying accepting them is “a good thing”:

“We do get money from other countries, and some of them are in the Middle East. And the money that we raised in the last couple of years are for an endowment so all these programs will run forever even when I get to the point when I can’t raise the money every year, are from people who have helped us before, and I think it’s a good thing.”
