Look of Scandal: Foundation Questions Dog Clinton

Today isn't a good day for the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. The New York Times reported that a Canadian mining company whose execs were major Clinton Foundation donors sold its uranium business to Russians, in a deal Clinton's State Department had to approve. The Washington Post reported on the overlap between companies and organizations that paid Clinton's husband enormous speaking fees but also gave to the foundation. And Reuters reported that the Clinton charities are refiling their tax returns after its review found errors in how they reported foreign governments' donations. The stories are all murky — but nonetheless, they've undoubtedly created the appearance, if not the fact, of a scandal. Even if the Clintons gave no quid pro quo, that doesn't mean foreign governments didn't expect one — so how would the Clinton Foundation operate in a possible future with Hillary Clinton as president?
