The book’s author, Peter Schweizer, alleges that he traced a pattern of donations from foreign governments and individuals that "occurred contemporaneous" with US foreign policy decisions benefiting those donors.
Earnest explained that before assuming the role of US State Secretary in 2009, Hillary Clinton — a founder of The Clinton Foundation together with her husband and former US President Bill Clinton — signed a “memorandum of understanding” to ensure that she and her office were compliant with strict ethical guidelines.
“The President [Obama] continues to be extraordinarily proud of the work that Secretary Clinton did as a Secretary of State,” Earnest said.
The decision comes after Hillary Clinton announced on April 12, 2015 that she would seek the Democratic presidential nomination.
The Clinton Foundation works on issues of economic empowerment, citizen service and racial reconciliation, acording to the organization’s website. The Foundation was established in 2001 after Bill Clinton completed his last presidential term.
