WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement in response to reports that the Clinton Foundation will stop accepting foreign and corporate donations if Hillary Clinton should win the presidency:

This effort to shield Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation after more than a year of controversy is too little, too late,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “After all, if everything was above board while Hillary Clinton ran the State Department as the Clintons have said, then why change a thing? But now that they have admitted there is a problem, the Clinton Foundation should immediately cease accepting foreign donations and return every penny ever taken from other countries, several of which have atrocious human rights records and ties to terrorism.

“The fact that the Clinton Foundation and its entities continue to accept foreign donations while Hillary Clinton runs for the White House is a massive, ongoing conflict of interest that gets bigger by the day. This is unprecedented and unacceptable. When that 3am phone call comes, Americans deserve to have a president on the line who is not compromised by foreign donations.”
