Hillary Clinton Resigns From Foundation Board

Updated: Apr 13, 2015 9:36 AM ET

Hillary Clinton resigned from the board of the Clinton Foundation on Sunday night as she launched her 2016 campaign for president.

“While I have cherished my time serving on the board and engaging in the day-to-day work of the Foundation, in order to devote myself to this new, all-encompassing endeavor, I have resigned from the board of directors effective today,” Clinton wrote in an internal email obtained by the New York Times.

She sent the email about an hour-and-a-half after announcing the launch of her campaign in a video.

The finances of the foundation have already provided fodder for attacks by Republicans, who have hammered it for accepting foreign donations.
