Clinton Foundation Releases Donors

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


The William J. Clinton Foundation, which funds or funded the Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative, the Clinton Global Initiative, the Clinton Climate Initiative, the Clinton Economic Opportunity Initiative, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, and, importantly, the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas, has released all of its donors dating back to 1997. This move was necessitated by Hillary Clinton’s move to the State Department, and as the Clinton Foundation explains in its press release, is meant “to ensure that not even the appearance of a conflict of interest existed between the Clinton Foundation’s operations and Senator Clinton’s anticipated service as Secretary of State.”

We plan on digging in, to see if any shady characters have funded the Clintons’ (very noble) post-presidency activities as part of some kind of quid pro quo, but at the moment it seems like the rush of journalists with the same intentions has knocked the site on its rear end. You can check in on the contributor list after it gets back up here.

IT'S NOT THAT WE'RE SCREWED WITHOUT TRUMP:

"It's that we're screwed with or without him if we can't show the public that what we do matters for the long term," writes Mother Jones CEO Monika Bauerlein as she kicks off our drive to raise $350,000 in donations from readers by July 17.

This is a big one for us. It's our first time asking for an outpouring of support since screams of FAKE NEWS and so much of what Trump stood for made everything we do so visceral. Like most newsrooms, we face incredibly hard budget realities, and it's unnerving needing to raise big money when traffic is down.

So, as we ask you to consider supporting our team's journalism, we thought we'd slow down and check in about where Mother Jones is and where we're going after the chaotic last several years. This comparatively slow moment is also an urgent one for Mother Jones: You can read more in "Slow News Is Good News," and if you're able to, please support our team's hard-hitting journalism and help us reach our big $350,000 goal with a donation today.
