Exclusive: Clinton charities ignore law requiring them to disclose millions from foreign donors
AG who could force transparency chooses not to

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has the power to force the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Health Access Initiative to publicly disclose the names of foreign governments and the millions they donate each year to the charities but he’s not doing it, a Scripps News investigation has found.

Schneiderman’s failure to require compliance with New York law and written instructions from his own office keeps the public in the dark about whether the foreign governments that gave money to the Clinton charities also had special access to Hillary Clinton when she was secretary of state, experts in private foundation law say. New York state has long required more transparency from non-profits operating within its borders than many other regulators.

A Scripps Washington Bureau review of tax returns and regulatory filings found that year after year the Clinton charities have ignored New York law and related instructions. However, the office of Attorney General Schneiderman, a Democrat whom Hillary Clinton named to her campaign’s “leadership council” in New York, did not respond to Scripps’ questions about the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), which has never publicly disclosed in New York filings the identity of its foreign government contributors or the amounts they give each year. Scripps also discovered CHAI did not report hundreds of millions of dollars in foreign government donations to the state.

However, Schneiderman’s office said it considers the Clinton Foundation, which is a separate charity, “in step” with state rules.

    The toxic Clinton crime family has corroded and undermined the meaning of law and order. Justice seems a distant memory, at least for non-elite Americans. Personally, I’d like her to experience her last coughing, hacking, seizure in a locked cell.

    I wouldn’t blame the Clinton’s for Schneiderman’s actions (or lack thereof) – he’s a reliable Democrat attack dog.

    As much fun as it would be it makes no sense to attribute all evil to the Clinton’s. They’re simply the most public exemplars & beneficiaries of a corrupt political culture.

    Mr. Ramirez nailed the gist of it in 2015.

    You can’t blame Schneiderman, he’s too busy investigating the Trump Foundation.

    Schneiderman is so far up Hillary’s rump, he can see her tonsils. If you don’t think he gets his orders directly from the Clinton crime family, you are sorely naive. He didn’t choose to ignore the law on his own. He fully expects to be rewarded once Hillary is in the Whitehouse. In this regard, I do believe he’s got some disappointment in his future.
