Bill Clinton is blaming the Clinton Foundation's accountants for not disclosing the acceptance of foreign donations on tax documents filed with the I.R.S. The former president made the comments in an interview with NBC:
"There was no attempt to hide them," Clinton said. "The guy that filled out the forms made an error. It's not like we didn't tell everybody who gave us the money. The guy put it on the wrong form."

Lost in the maelstrom surrounding Hillary Clinton’s utterly bizarre decision to violate protocol and use a private email system to conduct public business while serving as secretary of state is another festering Clinton scandal. (Of Clinton scandals, there is no end, to mangle Ecclesiastes.) That’s the fact that the Clinton Foundation, the ostensible charity run by Bill Clinton, accepted donations from foreign countries while Hillary Clinton was the nation’s top diplomat.
Last week, THE WEEKLY STANDARD reported that, based on 2013 tax filings, men made up the top eight most highly compensated employees at the Clinton Foundation, and that key women earned 63 cents for every dollar key men made.
