Clinton Foundation Received Donations from FIFA, Qatar 2022 World Cup Committee

It seems that to donate to the Clinton Foundation, one must be a modern-day super villain.

Following the indictment of FIFA officials on corruption charges, it was revealed that the organization, along with Qatar's 2022 World Cup Committee, were both Clinton Foundation donors. While exact donation amounts were unclear, FIFA donated between $50,000-$100,000, and Qatar's World Cup Committee donated between $250,000 and 500,000.

FIFA officials allegedly accepted bribes to chose Qatar as the host of the 2022 World Cup. Qatar has come under numerous human rights abuse accusations due to the high death toll of workers constructing the stadia to host the games. Qatar's harsh summer climate has also necessitated adjusting the game schedule to winter, not summer.

FIFA has continually said that there will not be a re-vote for the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bids. The 2018 World Cup was awarded to Russia.

Corruption and FIFA have a long history together.

Is there anyone the Clinton Foundation wouldn't accept money from?
