The ‘unraveling’ of the Clinton Foundation



Clinton Foundation President Donna Shalala talks to NPR about work underway to ‘unravel’ the Clinton Foundation in the event of a Hillary Clinton presidency.

Shalala said the work had been ongoing for months, long before the recent spate of attention to contacts between people who’ve supported the Foundation and Secretary of State Clinton.

What’s becoming clearer in the interview are earlier indications that the foundation will “drastically shrink.” The hope is that some international operations will spin off as independent efforts, with no Clinton involvement, or perhaps be attached to existing operations with similar goals. A Clinton Foundation will remain to support the presidential library. Bill Clinton will not raise money for those spun-off organizations, significant given what he’s raised for the Foundation to date.
