CLINTON PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY

 

The William J. Clinton Presidential Center and Park is the presidential library of Bill Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States (1993–2001). It is located in Little Rock, Arkansas and includes the Clinton Presidential Library, the offices of the Clinton Foundation, and the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service.

 

The library has been criticized for not including much information about the pardons Clinton issued just before leaving office.

Clinton pardoned former financier Marc Rich, a fugitive who had been charged with multiple counts of racketeering, wire fraud, income tax evasion, and illegal oil trading

Rich’s wife, Denise Eisenberg Rich, was reported to have made three donations totaling nearly $1,000,000 to Clinton’s presidential library fund, as well as multiple other contributions to the Democratic Party and Hillary Rodham Clinton’s senate campaign. It was later found that she only made three payments totaling $450,000 to the fundraiser.

 

Clinton has also been criticized for the library’s lack of coverage regarding various scandals during his presidency, including the Whitewater scandal.
