Finally! The Clinton Foundation Releases Donor List… December 18, 2008

…and a fascinating list, it is.

  • Governments or branches of Australia, the Dominican Republic, Norway, Kuwait, Qatar, Brunei, Oman, Jamaica and Italy, which each gave anywhere from $100,000-$25 million!
  • The biggest donations — more than $25 million each — came from two donors. They are the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, a London-based philanthropic organization founded by hedge fund manager Chris Hohn and his wife Jamie Cooper-Hohn and dedicated to helping children, primarily in Africa and India; and UNITAID, an international drug purchase organization formed by Brazil, France, Chile, Norway and Britain to help provide care for HIV-AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis patients in countries with high disease rates.
  • Numerous among the world’s richest, including Lasksmi Mittal (No. 4 on Forbes wealthiest list);  Harold Snyder (director for Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, the largest drug company in Israel); No. 97 on the Forbes billionaire list, Ethiopian-Saudi business tycoon Sheikh Mohammed H. Al-Amoudi; Saudi businessman Nasser Al-Rashid.
  • China Overseas Real Estate Development, an arm of the Chinese government.

How Hillary Clinton is supposed to be impartial as Secretary of State with this list of megadonors to her husband’s foundation, I have no idea.
