The vague transition plan of The Clinton Foundation – in light of the potential conflicts of interest questions raised this week  – is just too deliberate and slow for ethicists like Richard Painter, who served in the George W. Bush administration.

Hillary and Bill Clinton's questionable ties to the organization could end as quickly as one day, if they truly wanted them to, Painter told Politico.

"That could be done in one board meeting — change the name, have the board members resign and be replaced with people with no ties to the Clintons," Painter told Politico's Katy O'Donnell. "No one in the Clinton family should be there. ... That's an easy step to take. It could be done in an afternoon."

Painter's criticism comes on the heels of Clinton Foundation President Donna Shalala saying any change would take awhile and the charity pledged Hillary Clinton would not accept money to the Foundation once she is elected.

"This kind of unraveling has to be done with a scalpel so that we just do not hurt people, and do not interrupt the very good work that's being done," Shalala said in an NPR interview.

But independent trustees with charity experience elsewhere could oversee the changes as opposed to those tied to the Clintons, Painter suggested to Politico.
