Clinton Confirmation Issues

This Times editorial speaks to issues surrounding Sen. Clinton’s confirmation hearings, in light of President Clinton’s fundraising efforts for his foundation and presidential library.

The overarching principle should be prompt disclosure of the amount and source of all payments to any Clinton charity or to Mr. Clinton personally by any person or entity with a political or economic interest, real or perceived, in State Department decisions. Ideally, the White House counsel’s office would be assigned a larger role than envisioned in screening Mr. Clinton’s speaking and consulting deals before any check is received.
