The Clinton Foundation announcement about separating itself from donations from abroad was merely a ploy to make it appear as it was reacting to public concerns about foreign influence peddling in the White House without taking any meaningful steps to actually do so, according to LawNewz.com.

The website reported that the original Clinton campaign pledge on Thursday has already been walked back. Reuters said the day after the announcement the foundation admitted that the new guidelines on foreign donations would only apply to a small portion of the foundation’s activities.

LawNewz also reported that the foreign arm of the Clinton Foundation, the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership, is not subject to the guidelines either and would not shut down if Clinton wins the election. Rather, it reportedly would be spun into a separate entity in order to continue its work.

This came as Hillary Clinton's campaign manager Robby Mook told CNN that foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation will take time to wind down, responding to criticism from other quarters that the foundation said it would separate itself from foreign money only after Clinton wins the election.

CNN pressed Mook to explain why, if the foundation now acknowledges the possible problem with foreign influence on Clinton, it did not take this step to separate itself from foreign money when she was secretary of state or at least now, as she is running for president.

Mook avoided the question several times, stating that the foundation is getting extra scrutiny because it is willing to be so transparent. When pressed again, Mook explained the continued foreign donations by saying that the foundation is doing important work "and it takes time when you're in a number of countries around the world to retool, refocus the mission and adapt."
