    When Hillary Clinton agreed to be Secretary of State during
    President Obama's first term, she promised her distance from the
    Clinton Foundation. The foundation also agreed to limit foreign
    donations.

    Both agreements were for good reasons. Foreign officials and
    governments were big donors to the Clintons' family foundation,
    and there were concerns in the Obama administration about
    conflicts of interest between the foundation and Hillary
    Clinton's work at Secretary of State.

    But over the past year, evidence has emerged that both Clinton
    and the foundation failed to live up to those promises. Clinton
    and her top officials continued to have a cozy relationship with
    the foundation throughout her tenure at State, and evidence
    strongly suggest that Clinton was granting access and favors to
    major Clinton Foundation donors.

    In addition, the Clinton Foundation accepted millions of
    donations from foreign governments while Hillary was at State,
    including one that violated an ethics agreement it had with the
    Obama administration.

    The story came to light after the release of a groundbreaking
    book by Peter Schweizer called "Clinton Cash" which
    uncovered a serious of State Department decisions that appeared
    to favor big Clinton Foundation donors.

    Emails that emerged more recently made it clear that donors
    received special access and attention from Clinton and her top
    aides. An AP story found that more than half the private
    visitors Clinton received at State were donors to her family
    foundation.
