In order to criticize the Clinton Foundation, it is important to try to figure out what it actually does; veteran philanthropy journalist, David Callahan, tries his best to give an outline of the tentacles.
"The Clinton Foundation is back in the spotlight, with Donald Trump charging this month that the 'Russians, the Saudis, the Chinese all gave money to Bill and Hillary and got favorable treatment in return.' A range of other critics have piled on, including the Capital Research Center, which calls the foundation a 'cauldron of conflict and cronyism.'
"There are lots of good reasons for digging into the Clinton Foundation right now. But one question that gets surprisingly little attention is the most basic: What does this place actually do?"--David Callahan, Inside Philanthropy
