Schneiderman Helped Hide Shady Clinton Cash Abused Office of Attorney General for Partisan Gain

Calls for Immediate Enforcement to Require

Clinton Foundation Compliance With Law

 

New York--September 8th...New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman abused the powers of his office to help hide the Clinton's shady donations from foreign governments during her tenure as Secretary of State and must immediately require the Clinton Foundation's compliance with the law, the New York Republican State Committee charged.

 

The New York Post yesterday reported New York Attorney General Schneiderman failed to enforce the state's charity laws, giving the Clinton Foundation a pass on identifying foreign donors in its filings. It was reported the foundation and its subsidiary, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, took in $225 million in government donations between 2010 and 2014, concurrent with her tenure as Secretary of State.

 

New York's charity law states: "Organizations that received a contribution or grant from a government agency during the reporting period shall include the name of each agency from which contributions were received and the amount of each contribution."

 

"Attorney General Schneiderman's failure to equally apply the law when dealing with a close political ally is an abuse of the office and the public's trust," said NYGOP Chairman Ed Cox. "By refusing to require the Clinton Foundation to follow the law, he has allowed the Clinton's to cover their tracks and smoke out the public from knowing whether or not Mrs. Clinton gave special favors to their foreign donors while serving as Secretary of State. This is a corrupt circle of insider, partisan dealings that has no business inside the state's highest law enforcement office. He must immediately require the Clintons to follow the law, just like everybody else."
