Clinton foundation’s actions ‘highly suspicious’: watchdogs

Government watchdogs blasted Bill Clinton’s foundation Friday for aiding a for-profit energy-conservation firm partly owned by a blond divorcée who is a close friend of the ex-president.

The Clinton Global Initiative has been previously criticized for receiving donations and grants from governments and corporations that had business before Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton when she was secretary of state.

But the tax-exempt charitable group’s move to steer funds to a private interest — Clinton pals operating the for-profit Energy Pioneer Solutions — is beyond the pale and may violate federal law, the watchdogs said.
