Republicans and Democrats are divided over what disclosure mistakes from the Clinton Foundation could mean for the 2016 race.
After investigations from The New York Times, The Washington Post and the forthcoming book, Clinton Cash, by conservative journalist Peter Schweizer, her global philanthropy acknowledged over the weekend that it made mistakes in disclosing its donors by “mistakenly combin[ing]” government grants and donations.
The Foundation, started by Clinton and her husband back in 2001, was quick to point out that total revenue reports on the website remained accurate, but Republicans and other Clinton foes say this misstep could seriously hurt Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which has already been trying to avoid what she’s characterized as “distractions and attacks” from Republicans questioning the financial support of her family charity.
