In a post by acting-CEO Maura Pally, the Clinton Foundation has responded to allegations of secrecy and questionable donations, writing, “Yes, we made mistakes, as many organizations of our size do, but we are acting quickly to remedy them, and have taken steps to ensure they don’t happen in the future.”
Pally also asserts that contrary to the narrative of possible conflicts of interest, “When Hillary Clinton was appointed Secretary of State, we took unprecedented steps to avoid potential conflicts of interest by going above and beyond what is required of any philanthropy.”
Pally also addressed the accusation directed at one of the foundation’s arms, the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership. It has been at the center of questions over donations related to uranium deals. Pally claimed that registering the charity in Canada was “hardly an effort on our part to avoid transparency – unlike in the U.S., under Canadian law; all charities are prohibited from disclosing individual donors without prior permission from each donor.” Read more at the Clinton Foundation.
