The Clinton Foundation’s Swedish organization raised $26 million while the Scandinavian country’s government was lobbying U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to not impose further sanctions on Iran.
The Swedish business dealings with the Islamic republic were at risk from the possible new sanctions according to the Washington Times.
The William J. Clinton Foundation Insamlingsstiftelse had never been screened by the State Department ethics officials despite an agreement implemented in 2009 when Hillary Clinton became Secretary of State.
The agreement was intended to implement a transparent review system of her husband, Bill Clinton’s, fundraising and public speaking activities. The review system would explore their potential dealings with foreign nations with any potential conflicting ties to the U.S. government.
