I doubt Jimmy can answer that.  He posted this more out of political reasons for smearing Clinton.  You think the Koch bros will be spending a cool billion on the 2016 campaign just because they love the country?

The Clinton Foundation accepted millions of dollars from seven foreign governments during Hillary Rodham Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, including one donation that violated its ethics agreement with the Obama administration, foundation officials disclosed Wednesday.

Most of the contributions were possible because of exceptions written into the foundation’s 2008 agreement, which included limits on foreign-government donations.

The agreement, reached before Clinton’s nomination amid concerns that countries could use foundation donations to gain favor with a Clinton-led State Department, allowed governments that had previously donated money to continue making contributions at similar levels.

The new disclosures, provided in response to questions from The Washington Post, make clear that the 2008 agreement did not prohibit foreign countries with interests before the U.S. government from giving money to the charity closely linked to the secretary of state.

In one instance, foundation officials acknowledged they should have sought approval in 2010 from the State Department ethics office, as required by the agreement for new government donors, before accepting a $500,000 donation from the Algerian government.

 

The money was given to assist with earthquake relief in Haiti, the foundation said. At the time, Algeria, which has sought a closer relationship with Washington, was spending heavily to lobby the State Department on human rights issues.

While the foundation has disclosed foreign-government donors for years, it has not previously detailed the donations that were accepted during Clinton’s four-year stint at the State Department.

Jim doesn't care if the money was put to good use or not.  Just another chance to smear the Clintons.  I believe the article said that Algeirs gave $500,000 to the foundation with the specific purpose for earthquake relief in Haiti.....and that's where the money went.  Sinister isn't it!!

Slow news day for the right wing nuts so they try and drag anything up they can. Well all that money and it was put to good use helping average people around the world. No wounder the far right think there might be something wrong, as they never gave one cent to help the average people around the world. What a sad sorry group the far right is.
