Today, a witness called by the impeachment committee on the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton testified in the Senate that he had seen a “very large amount of material” on the Clinton Foundation.
“There were documents and other information that would have to be disclosed before it could be made public,” said the witness, David E. Smith.
“It is not the same as something that would be made available in court.”
The testimony comes as a new round of impeachment proceedings against the former president is underway.
Clinton is under a criminal investigation into his wife’s use of a private email server while in office.
His lawyer, Robert Barnett, said in a statement that Smith had told him that he was being investigated for the Clintons.
“I believe Mr. Smith has given an honest and accurate account of his own experiences,” Barnett said in the statement.
“We are committed to getting to the truth.”
Clinton, the nation’s first black president, has denied any wrongdoing and has repeatedly said he never sent or received classified material.
The Clinton Foundation has been a source of controversy for years.
In a recent court filing, the foundation was accused of accepting donations from foreign governments and foreign governments were given favors in return for favorable treatment of the Clinton administration.
The foundation is also under investigation for allegedly violating U.S. laws by failing to register as a foreign agent.
