The foundation has been scrutinized during Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid, and the Clintons have pledged to distance themselves from it should she win the White House in November in order to assuage concerns about conflicts of interests.

Bill Clinton has emphatically defended the organization's work and dismissed accusations that donors received special treatment from the State Department under his wife.

Politico noted that Clinton's birthday parties have previously doubled as fundraisers, raking in millions of dollars.
