More Broken Promises: Not All Clinton Foundation Donors Were Disclosed


A new report by Reuters found that in 2010, the Clinton Foundation spun off its largest health program, the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), into a separate legal entity and stopped disclosing its donors. CHAI “received millions of dollars in new or increased payments from at least seven foreign governments” while Clinton served as Secretary of State, raising new questions regarding transparency and whether there were substantial conflicts of interests.

Clinton Foundation officials claimed that CHAI did not disclose its donors from 2010 to 2013 because of an “oversight.” This excuse is dubious at best however, considering that the Initiative is led by former Clinton-era health czar Ira Magaziner whose 1990s healthcare reform taskforce was accused of intense secrecy and a failure to abide by open meeting and public disclosure laws.
