September 19, 2016: Bill Clinton says that some Clinton Foundation donors expected favors.

Former President Bill Clinton says of the Clinton Foundation in an interview, “Well, since we had more than 300,000 donors, it would be unusual if nobody did [try to get favors]. … Maybe some of them gave money for that reason, but most of them gave it because they liked what we were doing.”

He adds, “It was natural for people who’ve been our political allies and personal friends to call and ask for things. And I trusted the State Department wouldn’t do anything they shouldn’t do, from a meeting to a favor.” (NPR, 9/19/2016)
