Three weeks ago, when we first reported that Qatar had offered to pay the Clinton Foundation $1 million after a hacked Podesta email disclosed that the ambassador of Qatar “Would like to see WJC [William Jefferson Clinton] ‘for five minutes’ in NYC, to present $1 million check that Qatar promised for WJC’s birthday in 2011”, we said that in this particular case, the Clinton Foundation may also be in violation of State Department ethics codes.
Fast forward to today when overnight Reuters reported that the Clinton Foundation has confirmed it accepted a $1 million gift from Qatar while Hillary Clinton was U.S. secretary of state without informing the State Department, even though she had vouched to let the agency review new or significantly increased support from foreign governments.
Clinton signed an ethics agreement governing her family's foundation in order to become secretary of state in 2009. The agreement was designed to increase transparency to avoid appearances that U.S. foreign policy could be swayed by wealthy donors. According to the agreement, if a new foreign government wished to donate or if an existing foreign-government donor, such as Qatar, wanted to "increase materially" its support of ongoing programs, Clinton promised that the State Department's ethics official would be notified and given a chance to raise any concerns.
Alas, it now appears that the agreement was nothing more than a piece of paper to Hillary Clinton, who violated its terms on at least one occasion, and potentially on .
Clinton Foundation officials last month declined to confirm the Qatar donation. In response to additional questions, a foundation spokesman, Brian Cookstra, this week said that it accepted the $1 million gift from Qatar, but this did not amount to a "material increase"..

Does anything Hillary does come as a shock???
Just the Qataris making a down payment for American blood to get their gas pipeline run through Syria.
Doesn’t surprise me. She is the most dishonest candidate ever
The small Arab country of Qatar has long been accused of allowing terror financiers to operate within its borders. The country has been called the Club Med for Terrorists and most two-faced nation in the world, backing the U.S.-led coalition against the militants of the Islamic State while providing a permissive environment, in the words of one top American official, for terrorist financiers to operate with impunity."
Well, that can’t be legal.
No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.
But you know, living Constitution and all that...how could the Founding Fathers have anticipated the modern need for such foreign munificence?
A million bucks isn't a material increase? What is it then? It sure as heck isn't the burden of an old, thrice re-gifted fruitcake.
Does any crime or act of treason Hillary commits come with any consequences of justice?!?
This one should be an instant felony and years in prison.
How can she talk her way out of taking a million while SOS and not reporting it (for starters)?
So why doesn’t she have to give it back and go to prison? If it was me I would, plus owe the IRS.
Quotations is full of anti-America radicals.
In Beverly Hills we had two racing in the suburbs with kids around at 90mph. When being filmed be a reporter they told the reporter they would kill him for filming.
Lock her up.
If somebody with a high security clearance doesn’t report $ coming into their bank account ( even inheritances!) it is a violation ...
LOCK. HER. UP. !!!!
That is not news. Hillary will accept any amount of money from anyone. Ditto the Clinton Foundation.
