Hillary Clinton admitted Wednesday that some donors to her family's nonprofit, the Clinton Foundation, may have "slipped through the cracks" in "one or two instances" of disclosure. Her comments came in response to Donald Trump's charge Tuesday that during Clinton's tenure at the State Department, "the Russians, the Saudis, and the Chinese all gave money to Bill and Hillary and got favorable treatment in return."

Though Clinton has insisted her disclosures have been "overwhelming," Trump's allegation is at least partially correct: The Clinton Foundation did receive money from about 20 foreign governments while she was in office, including the Saudi government — for whom Clinton's State Department coordinated a controversial arms sale — as well as Saudi Arabia's near neighbors, Kuwait, Oman, and Qatar. The foundation was also supported by about 30 Fortune 100 companies that lobbied State during Clinton's tenure.
