Bill Clinton Will Not Divulge Presidential Library Donors

The Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas

ABC News’ Rick Klein and Eloise Harper Report: Former president Bill Clinton said Thursday that he will not reveal the names of donors to the Clinton Presidential Library unless he is required to by law, rebuffing pressure from his wife’s rivals for more disclosure.

“We don’t believe in one set of rules for us and another set for everybody else,” the former president said at a news conference in New York. “The people that have already given me money, I don’t think I should disclose it unless there is some conflict of which I am aware — and there is not — because a lot of people gave me money with the understanding that they could give anonymously. And if they gave publicly they would be the target for every other politician in America.”

At Wednesday night’s Democratic presidential debate, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., said she was “sure [the former president would] be happy to consider” making public the names of donors to the library. But she refused to say whether she had asked him to do so.

The law should be changed to include former Presidents.

Clinton’s list WOULD be revealing……….
