WASHINGTON – The State Department says it has no evidence that any actions taken by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton when she was secretary of state were influenced by donations to the Clinton Foundation or former President Bill Clinton’s speaking fees.

Spokesman Jeff Rathke says the department is aware of reports suggesting links between her work and donations from foreign governments. But Rathke says that during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, the department received requests to review proposed speech hosts and consulting deals for Bill Clinton and found no conflicts.

The State Department says it welcomes new commitments from the Clinton Foundation to disclose its donors and to support additional efforts that ensure all of those donations are public.
