A CBS News investigation has found that at least one foreign company with close ties to its government has been giving generously to the foundation run by Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton.

Since its founding, the Clinton Foundation has invested millions each year for work in fighting AIDS and empowering women, but its recent uptick in donations from foreign governments has been raising questions about the potential influence on Hillary Clinton, as she gets ready to run for president.

The foundation has raised at least $42 million from foreign governments - and according to an analysis by CBS News - at least $170 million from foreign entities and individuals.

One donor - Rilin Enterprises- pledged $2 million in 2013 to the Clinton Foundation's endowment. The company is a privately-held Chinese construction and trade conglomerate and run by billionaire Wang Wenliang, who is also a delegate to the Chinese parliament. Public records show the firm has spent $1.4 million since 2012, lobbying Congress and the State Department. The firm owns a strategic port along the border with North Korea and was also one of the contractors that built the Chinese embassy in Washington.

That contract is a direct tie to the Chinese government, according to Jim Mann, who has written several books on China's relationship with the U.S.

With "embassy construction, one of the most important tasks is making sure that there are no bugs there," he said. "So you want to have the closest security and intelligence connections with and approval of the person or company that's going to build your embassy."

The Clinton Foundation largely stopped taking money from foreign governments when Hillary Clinton became secretary of state in 2009. It resumed the practice once she left in 2013, but never stopped taking money from foreign companies or individuals.

In a statement, the foundation said that should Hillary Clinton run for president "we will continue to ensure the Foundation's policies and practices regarding support from international partners are appropriate, just as we did when she served as Secretary of State."

The Foundation donors should be shown. But then again I'd like to know who Sheldon Adelson is funding. I think it's a question for voters to decide whether a politician is unduly influenced.

This is why. Know this. The true scumbag left, I mean the bottom of the fucking barrel piles of utter scum. The types that believe obama is too conservative.

THEY LOVE ELIZABETH WARREN.

They are the ones that comprise the left wing media.

Alas the reading comprehension issue raises its ugly head once more.

It was notoriously liberal CBS doing the whining. Try again; this time sound out each wordl.

Ever hear of Citizens United, Heritage, Murdoch/Muslim control of American fox media Alwaleed bin Talal?

Give it a moment ... Think reeel hard ...

You would have no way of knowing this but until Murdoch/ Muslim Alwaleed bin Talal, no foreign interest could even OWN American media and no corporation could own more than one American media. IOW, we used to be able to trust our own media. Now much of it is owned and controlled by foreign money. You really think that's okay?

Educate yourself. Watch Orwell Rolls In His Grave on You Tube.
