Lanny Davis: Don’t let Clinton Foundation become a casualty of politics


The Hill – There are some serious people whom I respect, including some editorial writers and pundits, who have called for shutting down the Clinton Foundation if Hillary Clinton is elected president, even if Bill Clinton resigns from leadership, as he has promised to do.

Their reasoning, however, is based on an entirely suspect perspective: They see an “appearance” of conflict of interest.

But not one of them — not one reporter who has breathlessly written about foundation donors attending meetings or lunches at the State Department — has cited a single fact showing that Hillary Clinton as secretary of State ever made a decision or influenced others on policy matters because of a foundation donation.
