What do Saudi Arabia, a Ukrainian politician, and a Lebanese-Nigerian developer all have in common? They all donated to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, during, before or after Hillary Clinton’s time as secretary of state. New York Times reporter Steve Eder recently wrote an article exploring the foundation’s donor base and the accusations against it.  We talked with Eder about the potential conflicts of interest these donations could raise for the Democratic nominee that could undermine her campaign.
