Head of Clinton Foundation prepares for a Clinton presidency

Prior to becoming secretary of state, Hillary Clinton stepped down from the foundation and pledged to discontinue working on its behalf in order to avoid creating a conflict of interest. Hillary Clinton is stronger than me.

After Clinton said earlier this month that she "short-circuited" answers about the email controversy, Trump quipped at a New Hampshire rally, "She took a short-circuit in the brain".

While Republicans see attacking Clinton over the organization as a way of unifying conservatives divided over Trump, a political outsider, Democrats hope the controversy comes too late to make a difference in the election, in which most national public opinion polls show Clinton ahead.

In response to reports suggesting that donors to the Clinton Foundation were granted greater access to the State Department during her tenure, the foundation announced some changes in the event that Hillary Clinton wins the presidency.

While former President Bill Clinton has noted the vital work done by the foundation, the editorial board argued that there will be no more vital work for Hillary Clinton than being president.

Donald Trump meant to say Wednesday that Hillary Clinton's use of an email server during her tenure at the State Department was an act of "premeditation".

New questions are being raised about Hillary Clinton's time as Secretary of State.

Clinton's team continues to insist she did nothing wrong. Combined, the donors contributed as much as $156 million to the charity.

On Monday, the State Department said it was reviewing almost 15,000 previously undisclosed emails recovered as part of the Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry, which was closed after investigators recommended against criminal charges.

Pushing back, Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon said the AP report relied on "pretty flawed methodology" and said in an interview with MSNBC on Wednesday that Clinton was being held to a different standard than other politicians with charitable work.

But Clinton surrogates also stepped up to defend the foundation, highlighting its work around the world. "Clinton will contrast Donald Trump's divisive views and unsafe temperament with her vision of an America that is stronger together and where everyone has a role to play in the future".

"Honestly, I don't think she's all there", he added. The meeting is scheduled for September 19-21, which means it will happen exactly one week before his wife's first presidential debate in NY.
