It’s hard to keep up with all the Clinton money news today

Hillary Clinton has a lot more questions to answer in regards to money. Thursday has been a headline day, and the new book, Clinton Cashcomes out May 5.

Clinton Foundation misreported tens of millions of dollars from foreign governments, will amend tax returns.

“For three years in a row beginning in 2010, the Clinton Foundation reported to the IRS that it received zero in funds from foreign and U.S. governments, a dramatic fall-off from the tens of millions of dollars in foreign government contributions reported in preceding years. Those entries were errors, according to the foundation: several foreign governments continued to give tens of millions of dollars,” Reuters reporter Jonathan Allen wrote.

Donations to Clinton Foundation linked to the sale of US uranium to Russian agency.

As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions … a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation,” The Times reported. “Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.”

Personal fortune linked to foundation donor network.

“The amount … demonstrates how closely intertwined Bill and Hillary Clinton’s charitable work has become with their growing personal wealth,” The Post’s Rosalind Helderman wrote. “The Clintons’ relationships with major funders present an unusual political challenge for Hillary Rodham Clinton. Now that she has formally entered the presidential race, the family may face political pressure and some legal requirements to provide further details of their personal finances and those of the foundation, giving voters a clearer view of the global network of patrons that have supported the Clintons and their work over the past 15 years.”
