AP notes that these meetings “do not appear to violate legal agreements Clinton and former president Bill Clinton signed before she joined the State Department.” (RELATED: 96 Percent Of Hillary’s Charitable Donations Went To Clinton Foundation)

Republican Vice Presidential nominee Mike Pence addressed the AP’s report in a Tuesday statement.

The fact Hillary Clinton’s official schedule was full of meetings with Clinton Foundation donors is further evidence of the pay-to-play politics at her State Department. No one is above the law. The Clinton Foundation must be immediately shut down and an independent special prosecutor be appointed to determine if access to Hillary Clinton was for sale. It would be a dereliction of duty by President Obama and his Justice Department if they fail to act on these startling new facts right now.
