Even The NYT Says Clintons Should Ban Foreign Donations / by Tyler Durden / Aug 30, 2016 10:18 AM

While carefully navigating the waters of what a reasonable man would presume as guilt over pay-to-play cronyism at the highest levels of government, it appears that The New York Times is gravely concerned at what The Clinton Foundation’s trail of tumult could do to the messianic reign of Hillary Clinton.

As a result, this morning its editorial board joined the chorus of mostly right of center voices, calling on Hillary Clinton to ban all foreign donations to her family’s charity in a editorial published Friday.

The call comes after a string of reports noting that the Clinton Foundation had begun to accept foreign donations after banning them for the four years Clinton served as secretary of state. The foundation has since defended donations from countries like Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Oman as philanthropy, not influence peddling, but Democrats and Republicans have questioned the practice.

“All of which underlines the need for Hillary Rodham Clinton, in her all but certified role as a Democratic presidential candidate, to reinstate the foundation’s ban against foreign contributors, who might have matters of concern to bring before a future Clinton administration,” the editorial board wrote. “This was a restriction Mrs. Clinton worked out with the Obama administration to allay concerns of potential conflict of interest when she became secretary of state in 2009.”
