Gosh, you’d think Hillary would have known that the Clinton Foundation accepting a million dollar gift from Qatar while she was still Secretary of State was something she should have informed the State Department about, right?
Otherwise it’s almost like she was trying to hide it and surely that wasn’t the case.
*all the eye-rolls*

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 promised to let the agency review new or significantly increased support from foreign governments.
Qatari officials pledged the money in 2011 to mark the 65th birthday of Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton’s husband, and sought to meet the former U.S. president in person the following year to present him the check, according to an email from a foundation official to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign chairman, John Podesta. The email, among thousands hacked from Podesta’s account, was published last month by WikiLeaks.
Clinton signed an ethics agreement governing her family’s globe-straddling 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.
To increase transparency … HA HA HA HA HA AHA
Who among us has forgotten to report a million-dollar donation from the world’s number one funder of international Sunni jihad? https://t.co/rpaarPMXrK

Right? Super easy to forget a $1 million dollar gift from a country that funds terrorism.
Happens every day.
It happens to the best of us. I guess …

I am sure it’s just an honest mistake…… just like deleting emails

She was too stupid to know she shouldn’t do that.
Just like the email thing.
Using the infamous Comey reasoning, she didn't intend to not remember to report it. So nothing important here.

I wonder if they were trying to buy access. You know, like a quid pro quo

Nah. Not possible because, well, "no one is above the law."
Or so we've been constant reminded.
