Foreign Government Contributions To Clinton Foundation Ethical?

If you want to find ethics corrupted, without fail
All you have to do is follow the money trail
The Clinton Foundation while Hillary was Secretary of State from foreign governments was raking in the cash
The conflicts of interest barriers it would seem thrown into the trash
Appearances of impropriety however slight do matter and should be avoided like the plague
Taking money from foreign governments for Clinton’s run is a fuse lit powder keg
It takes a great suspension of disbelief to believe the absence of a quid pro quo
When foreign governments seeking favors are plying the Clinton Foundation with dough
Algeria was lobbying tooth and nail on the issue of human rights
500 grand from Algeria nondisclosed to State coming in like a thief in the night  
Whether in the agreement with the Obama Administration had exceptions is not germane
Ethics 101 would have required Clinton to in the pursuit of foreign funds abstain
Sadly because the press, save Fox, is chomping at the bit
For her to declare and be crowned, any inquiry on impropriety the press will not admit
