Clinton defends foreign donations

Former President Bill Clinton defended his foundation's acceptance of donations from foreign governments on Saturday, pointing to the track record of his global philanthropy.

In an interview at the Clinton Global Initiative University, the ex-president sought to address critics who have questioned the receipt of donations from foreign governments while former First Lady Hillary Clinton served in the State Department and after she departed.

"My theory about all of this is disclose everything and then let people make their judgments," Bill Clinton told moderator Larry Wilmore of Comedy Central. "I believe we have done a lot more good than harm and I believe this is a good thing."

He steered clear of addressing criticism involving Hillary Clinton's use of a private e-mail account while she served as secretary of state.
